There are a few things about my own blog that really annoy me. Two of those things are the lack of photography NOT pulled from Pinterest and the complete void of giveaways. For being such loyal readers and standing by me through my growing pains, you're going to (hopefully) notice my efforts to improve in those areas...starting now!
First, I want to share a few pics of my master bedroom redo. It's nowhere near complete yet but the room has vastly improved already. It used to look like this...
I had ONE pair of cheesy Target drapes hanging even though I had two windows. LAME. And they were definitely hung too low. The room was a bit dull...I was going for "soothing."
In researching bedroom designs, I fell in love with one Kelly Wearstler room in particular. The brass, the color palette, the patterns...I'm in!

With a little Christmas cash and a huge sale from an online fabric store, I bought a few yards of one of her fabrics...I call it the "Oh the Places You'll Go" fabric because it reminds me of the illustrations in that Dr. Seuss book.
I also picked out some new drapes and Euro shams from Blue Hand Home here in Wilmington. (Love them!) Hanging curtains is my absolute least favorite thing to do. I'm short and not blessed with much upper body strength. Today, I hurt. And my trusty old drill died yesterday so I learned how to use this new one.
Turns out this drill is wayyyy lighter than my old one and I only ended up stripping ONE screw! Yay!
So here's how the room looks today. More room for improvement (nighstands! lumbar pillow!) but I am pleased with the progress so far.
If you've seen all of the pics on my Instagram already, I apologize. If not, come follow me at iluvsavoirflair!
I promise to keep documenting the changes in case you are interested. This blog obviously focuses on (FLAIR for) style but every now in then a little project is fun to see. As for that other self-critique, stay tuned for a giveaway soon. It's gonna be good.
