Friday Finds – Home Decor Ideas

This week’s Friday Finds is all about home décor ideas.    We’ve slowly been making updates to our home and the room we’re concentrating on right now is our teenage daughter’s room.   It turns out that I’m not the only one who is finding my decorating style — my daughter is, too.   For the most part, our styles are similar, well, as similar as they can be given the fact that I’m the parent and she’s the teen!

Here are some of  my favorites, based on the items we’re drawing inspiration from:

Pintucked Duvet similar to this one at

 Interest Coop Keepsake Board at ModCloth

Chandelier similar to the Bella Chandelier at

Poodle decorative figure (we might spray paint it white) , Invisible Double Book Shelf at Urban Outfitters


She’d also like to replace her headboard with a daybed (which I’m not sure about). replace her small bedside table with a more adult and functional one, get new lamps or new lamp shades for her existing lamps and possibly a small chair –maybe a butterfly chair or something else that we could create a little reading nook area with.

Yikes!  We’ve got our work cut out  for us.  Time to start saving our pennies!

  1. I love what you have chosen, and am feeling a pang of sadness, as my daughter moved out 3 months ago. But she is haooy, so I am happy! I know this age group loves anything from Anthrpologie and that the look carries through to her twenties.. great for bedding, pillows , etc.
    Not sure about the day bed, but maybe if it has storage space underneath?

    1. Hi Elle,

      So glad you stopped by! So glad you like our choices, too. Now to start getting it all together and to figure out a paint color. We’re getting there. I can definitely understand that pang of sadness. They grow up soooo fast! I’m glad your daughter is happy and it makes you happy. That’s all we can ask for, right? We love Anthropologie and I think the room will definitely reflect that shabby chic, vintage, kind of look, once we’re done.

    waste your traffic, you can earn additional cash every month because you’ve
    got hi quality content. If you want to know how to make extra
