Budget Friendly Bedroom Makeover in NJ!

I recently did a simple bedroom makeover on a really tight budget! I tried to stay as close to twelve hundred dollars as possible and I think the result is pretty nice! Coral/orange was the pop of color that was decided on based on this inspiration photo below.

Here are the before shots of the space:

Below are the after shots:

Moroccan Pouf, Yes Please!

Using moroccan poufs in some of my interior design plans adds such a fun, whimsical and practical element to a room. One of my client's was unsure to agree to a light sky blue one for her coastal bonus room. I sent her some of these images to show her how they are so versatile with any type of decor, from traditional to coastal inspired design. Below are some expressions of fellow decorators about these great pieces!

Multi talented Moroccan footrests - practical, fun and enhance the decor!"
I am a huge fan of Moroccan poufs. They are great extra seating. They are great footrests. They are both exotic and modern, and they come in a rainbow of colors.

Poufs or small stools can be used as tables, footrests or extra seating and are easily tucked away when not in use."

Feeling Blue......

can you find the common thread in both rooms? what I find interesting is how the same artwork is used in each space and yet the vibe of the spaces are very different. one feels light and airy and other dark and moody. i have been using varying shades of blue lately in my designs but for very different reasons. cobalt blue and navy are great colors for a very masculine feel  & aqua and robins egg blue are great for a coastal vibe. what blue shades are your favorite? my readers please share with me below in the comment box, your feedback is precious to me!
