New Bedroom Lamps

We're moving on Saturday.  FINALLY.  Baby O has been sleeping in the closet far longer than I ever intended (she's 7 1/2 months!).  She is about to get her own bedroom and a super awesome crib on loan from Oilo (its the crib with brown bars and white ends).  I can't wait to post pictures of all the wonderful details!  And, even though I love most of my bedroom decor, the wall color of our new rooms is taupe, or darker, I can't remember off the top of my head.  I do know that my black and white and gray wont go with the wall color and so, I'm changing it up.  On a budget.

I have two lamps that I got for my bridal shower with a beautiful black and white pattern.  So I'm going to recover them (if I can find a temporary way to do that) to look like this:

What do you think?  Too girly for a married bedroom?

Ruffle Shower Curtain Craze!

Have you seen this awesome shower curtain from Anthro?  Its all the rage on pinterest these days.

One of my students started describing a shower curtain that sounded a lot like this one, but from Bed Bath and Beyond.  So I searched and sure enough here it is!

And of course if you're feeling crafty, you can always go with Elle Apparel's homemade version (+ you get to pick your own colors!)

Anthro: $118
Bed Bath and Beyond: $49.99
Elle Apparel: $20 + lots and lots of work!

Which would you choose?

Let the Fun Begin!

Today we started our first project in my Advanced Interior Design class.  I love this project.  My students have competed in this competition with FCCLA for the last three years, starting the second year of its existence (really, the first year it was different rules, and a pretty lame project).  The first year my students did very well, the second year they took first place at state (Utah) and last year they took second place at state (which I blame on me not having as much time to coach them).  Every year its the same rules, but the scenario is different.  This year they are drafting a remodel for a whole house!  They are remodeling a traditional shotgun style home.  Along with the floor plan they draw an elevation of one room and select all the finishes and furniture.  We are going to spend the next two months on this project (which, isn't as long as it sounds since I only see them 2 or 3 times a week and there's a lot of time off for holidays).  Can't wait to see how they do!
