Other title option? Pleather is the New Pillow.

Remember this room?


That bedding was from the old house and obviously didn’t match anything.

And while this wallpaper isn’t what Nick and I would have chosen, it’s actually really pretty in person – very busy, but very pretty.

Since we have quite a few projects we’d like to tackle before worrying about this wallpaper, I wanted to keep the rest of the items in this room simple so nothing would clash with the pattern on the walls.


You also saw this room last weekend while it was still in disarray. Nick had to adjust a few things in the frame to make it fit the mattress we had, but after that was done and thanks to a fun house shopping trip this past weekend with Nick’s mom, the bedding is done!


And I love it.



The best part is that everything was either free or cheap!

We got the quilt and shams from Nick’s parents because it was an old set they weren’t using any longer.

The blanket is from Big Lots. Super soft and cozy.

The beige sheets are from Kohls, I think? They were bought right after the holidays on super sale.


These awesome brown pleather pillows were in a set of 2 from TJMaxx this weekend and only $20!

And the mauve microfiber pillow was $6 or $8, also from Big Lots.

SO much better, right?

I like that the pleather gives it a more rustic look and keeps the room from looking too fancy schmancy with that wallpaper.

Now if we can just get the rest of the house caught up ; ) It’s a work in progress! But we do have a new living room rug on the way, and I can’t wait to see that.

Are you doing any redecorating right now?


Our next big project is that kitchen – the fruit wallpaper will be coming down!
