Bedroom Makeover

This is my first attempt at interior design.  I have no idea what I’m doing, but I know what I like.  Any bedroom I’ve had in the past was usually a hodge podge of vibrant colors and looked kind of erratic and tropical.  I realized that this is not the most peaceful setting for a bedroom.  For some reason I love hotel rooms with the big puffy clouds of white that are so pristine and cozy.  I wanted to model our bedroom after our room at our honeymoon resort in Cancun.  The walls at home were already a great sandy color and the bed is a rich chocolate brown.  I decided to play upon that.  I added some fun sea urchin sketches, soft lighting, and these deep blue curtains to give a nice pop of color.


These are from World Market and I had no clue what they were when they arrived because they were packaged like this.  It was actually fun to unwrap them.  I realize now that they were wrapped this way to give the fun crepe-like texture.




Here’s the room so far.  I’m thinking of a wall clock and a nice ceiling fan with the large palm leaves to finish it off.

About Lauren Lear

Virginian to Mainiac, I moved to Maine for a photo internship with Aurora Photos and stayed because I met the man I would marry after winking at him on My photo business, Lola Studios, is where I pursue my love of fantasy photography using makeup and props to create alternate realities for my clients. I started this blog a little over a year ago to share the wedding prep, diy, food, and family experiences that I had. To bring you up to speed, my husband Alex and I bought a home, got married, went on our honeymoon, hosted Thanksgiving and Christmas back to back (never again ;) ), I turned 30 (never again :( ), we went to London to celebrate our first married year, and we got a puppy, Walter! That’s about it! I hope you’ll join me to see what unfolds next. Enjoy!
