Collecting items over time, from favorite stores, bargain deals and thrift + some savvy shopping can help style a home without busting the budget. It's in the details, your story and the mix...

and a few finds from thrift... (mostly Goodwill)
Red Chairs - Goodwill ($12 for BOTH!)
Red Plaid Throw - Goodwill ($5)
Glass Candlestick Hurricanes ($5 for both)
Red & Green Books on the night stand
Brass pitcher & sconces
White Glass Dresser Lamps (Florida Faith Farm)
I was going to have switched the window panels to white with red ticking stripe, but with the black furniture, I like the way the black & white paisley panels anchor this side of the room, and frame the window. The white would have been too light looking plus still play well with the plaid & check mix...
The red book on the black box is a journal of ours called "All About Us" we've had since dating and the rock on the red stacked books is called Fools Gold we picked on while visiting Sedona, AZ this Fall...
Large or small - Love the look of fresh cut greens at Christmas!
Two small black urns from HomeGoods worked to hold two small arrangements on the thrifted book stacks on the night stands.Candles give warmth + change the lighting and mood in the bedroom - Just beware of greens near the flame when lighting them...
Although layers add interest in a space, I really love using a strong dose of symmetry when styling the bedroom...
Christmas Bedroom - Rental ReStyle 2013
Christmas Bedroom - Florida - 2007
When we first moved to Arizona, it was November 16, 2011, and I was still getting a feel for our new place...
Wanting to do something a little different, I went with a mix of fresh greens & wintry whites in the bedroom for Christmas 2012...
Ready & layered with winter warmth in AZ for Christmas...
Happy Holiday Decorating!
