Be Bold Challenge: Colorful & Eclectic Master Bedroom

Today, I'm sharing my colorful and eclectic master bedroom, which is my addition to the Be Bold Challenge, issued to me by Carrie at Lovely Etc. This week, 10 other creative ladies have shared their projects on their amazing blogs and they've BLOWN ME AWAY! And, on Monday, you'll have the opportunity to join us for one big BOLD link party!

I'm so glad Carrie issued this challenge, because I've been working on my bedroom for for.ev.er. Slowly, I've painted furniture, swapped curtains (several times), updated pillows and changed rugs. It's been a work in progress, for sure. But, having this challenge pushed me to finally finish it and, more importantly, share it with you!

The painting above my nightstand (which is a table + suitcase, in case you can't tell) was painted by my great uncle in the mid 1950s. I love that it's a piece of my creative roots! The chair is also a family antique and got a simple white paint job for my little reading nook. An old, brass, Goodwill magazine holder also got a new paint job and now holds my various books. 

In case you like shopping details: the white duvet cover is from Ikea, the curtains are from Groopdealz and the pillows are from Target and HomeGoods. Pretty typical shopping spots, as you can see!

I shared the details of my dresser update waaaay back when. This was one of my first bedroom projects and I'm still loving it!

One of the boldest aspects of my room is the yellow dresser. I love it! It adds just the pop of color I was wanting in my space. 

I really love how the yellow pairs with the rich blue of the curtains and the pale blue of the walls. In case you don't know by now, I heart color! :)

And, that's that...my bold and colorful master bedroom!

 And, don't forget to come back on Monday to link up your own bold project!
