Peacock Love

I'm still working on my daughter's bedroom.  I found her a chinoiserie night stand for one side of the bed.  You know I never like to be too matchy matchy so I decided that for the other side of the bed a desk would be more practical.  She purchased a high gloss white x-based desk from World Market.  It is a perfect work space and also acts as another bedside table.  The pink molded desk chair on wheels is from Ikea.

I found knobs with peacocks for her chinoiserie night stand.

After I found these knobs I was finding peacocks everywhere.
 I created a gallery wall above her desk with them.

Below is a closer look at the small gallery wall mix.  It includes some images of peacocks which I placed in multi-colored frames, a sunburst mirror, and some vintage metal peacocks that I spotted and purchased at a flea market.  She had the lamp, in fact a pair of them.  I updated them with chevron shades from Target.  The large framed image is a page from an old book, the other two are copies of a liquor ad I found in a magazine.  Did you notice that the upper and lower images are from the same ad?  I made two copies.  I framed the whole image in the lower picture and cut the other copy in half and only framed the top half for the upper picture.

At Home Goods I purchased this planter decorated with peacock feathers.  She uses it to hold pens and pencils.  The journal also has peacock feathers.  I tied a ribbon and a feather around it and perched a peacock Christmas ornament on top just for fun.

I'm teasing you with a peek at her new bohemian bedding.  More bedroom updates are in the works.  Stay tuned.

What have you done to update a bedroom?
