Getter done! Before and After Partay started!

Project mode big time over here at Debbiedoos!!~ It takes me a solid week or longer just to do a few room Fall changes. I bought this comforter set Better Homes and Gardens with the intentions of using it for Fall. Now some may say or think it is more Spring and Summer, however I really liked the colors and knew I could warm it up by adding chocolate browns. My room was in disaster mode when I started this project yesterday.  I think I am finally finished.  I needed one more final touch, and I thought of it today, came home did my mini project and added to it. I realize my taste may not suit everyone's liking...it is not intended too really.  It is to inspire you to think outside the box, with accessories, colors and style.
Decisions Decisions....I have a thing for pillows, was not sure which one I wanted to use.
So I went onto another project in the meantime......same shade like I just bought from the Walmart for 7.00, I also bought this pretty blue base for 10.00. This was the final touch I needed.
Of course I had to embellish just a tad on this one.  I used orange silk yarn, like you use to make a scarf and wrapped that around the top base.  Added some pretty silk greenery.
And that is the end result.
Looks real pretty lit too!
I finally found a home for my mirror. It is on my side wall next to the bed. I am not sure how I really like it there...I tried over the bed, and it is too small.
Love my new little votive candles from Hobby lobby...set of three for $3.50.
Close up of my new bedding. As I mentioned from Better home and Gardens collection. King size set for 79.99...included shams and bedskirt.  Awesome quality too.  You see, I am not one to keep the same bedding all year round, I change out per season, I have 4-5 sets now, and to be honest that is all I have room for barely in my closets. I have to buy those space savers TOMORROW MOM!!~
So let me know what you think....as I mentioned I had every pillow combo and color, and this was my final decision.

My Link will be up come tomorrow for my Before and After party, this is the post I am using......
See ya then!!~ Thank you as always for stopping by.

I pray you never have to move! I live in a tiny house and have the threat to move all the time. i do like that most of your decor is versatile though. But thank goodness for all that storage you must have!

Oh I love it! Those pillows are great with the basket weave. I agree with you 100% those look like fall colors to me in this set. Love your mirror where it is and your new lamp is so trendy! Love the silk yarn. I bet your room probably appeals to alot more people then you think! It's fantastic!

Looks great! I have a fall/winter comforter and a spring/summer comforter. Although- I want new ones of both! lol

Oh Debbie, I think it looks beautiful! You've done a great job!

I completely understand the whole running out of storage for bedding. I have so many in my cedar closet because I, too, like to change with the seasons. Drives my husband nuts! They're just too bulky to store so I had to buy those Space Bags.

I love it! I totally think that it looks "fall"ish! And, I can't believe I have never commented on the fact that we have the same background on our blogs! I always noticed it but forgot to say something...great taste! :-) Thanks for sharing some fall inspiration!

I think it came out beautiful! We all may have different tastes but there is always something that we can take away from each other no matter how different we are. I love the lamp you got and those two natural looking pillows on your bed are very cool!

Oh, you come up with the most wonderful ideas. Your room looks gorgeous and ready for fall. Just an FYI, I have a couple of Hanging Decor/Banners for Halloween in my shop, if you are interested. I will be adding more fall items in the near future.

Thanks for sharing your wonderful home. Mary O

I think the comforter definitely looks like fall the way you have it and of course, the pretty orange colors. The lamp compliments it {you are going to have all of Blogland making those lamps!!}. Your room looks so elegant, love your drapes and the settee.

I'm so much like you, changing comforters and duvet covers out several times a year. When I wanted a new area rug to match my latest purchase, I knew I was sick!

Wish I knew about the party earlier, I just can't come up with anything now except inspiration!!

Hello Debbie,

I love your room! I like that they are not all dark. Great touch to the lampshade. I like your pillow collection. Especially the one that is blue trimmed, striped and with flowers. I love pillows too (ok, slight addiction). I typically change my linens twice - Spring/Summer & Fall/Winter. I do not have much room left for linen storage either. I need another antique chest. Linen and dishes/baking paraphernalia are my downfall... I told my son I need his closet but for some reason, he was not very cooperative!

Every room needs something that is fun, unexpected, and a little whimsical. I love that you added just that to your lampshade! What fun, happy bedding, too. I like to change things out too- and you are so right- we need those space saver bags! Love how you call it "the Walmart." I always call it that and Wallymart. But then, I am silly like that...
hugs, Sue
