Simple bedroom makeover with turquoise curtains from Ikea. A nice bedroom before but kind of blah. The room was white & beige with a splash of red:
This picture was taken as I was hanging the brackets, I had my painting of a tree above the bed which I moved to our entry way and now looks like it is in the right place. Here is the tree painting now:

We've been in our new place for a year and a half but couldn't figure out what colors I wanted. I love the modern gray bedrooms but I just didn't want to paint. I wanted to keep the red cat my mom made for me in the room but I am so tired of just red even though it is my favorite color. I kept seeing turquoise everywhere; even some cool light turquoise velvet curtains at Ikea. Finally, I saw this fabulous soothing but vibrant room in Adore Your Place interior design blog :
That sealed the deal! It was going to be turquoise and red!
So off to Ikea I went and picked up the curtains.....and then they sat. Procrastination set in, where do I hang them? How wide? How high? What about this goofy asymmetrical window? To puddle or not? I hate sewing! I like seeing the tree outside the window when I walk in the room. ....and OMG I have to iron them first! My least favorite thing to do is iron! After a few weeks, I bit the bullet and just did it! It's hard work just hanging a few curtains, a bit sore for a day after but it was totally worth it!

The master bathroom even got a turquoise makeover with some of my favorite scrap fabric in an Ikea frame! The bedroom still needs a bit more decorative touches like maybe some pattered pillows or finials; I will probably make some using glass drawer knobs and save $35 a pair! The whole makeover cost about $200 including a "new" turquoise dog blanket from Goodwill for Zoe!
What do you think of turquoise and red?
