{#WordlessWednesday} The 'Wanna Sneak Peek of my boudoir"? Edition #Photos

I knew the subject would get ya! You dirty little butterfly! :-)

With the Groundhog predicting an early Spring, I have slowly but surely been re-decorating and doing some purging (I won't call it 'Spring Cleaning' as there aren't really signs of Spring yet in New York City!)

As promised a sneak peek of my boudoir!

Buddha Wall Art, Bedding Set, Curtains, Macys, Hayneedle, Cost Plus World Market
Almost too pretty to sleep in!

Buddha Wall Art, Bedding Set, Curtains, Macys, Hayneedle, Cost Plus World Market, Bedroom, Interior Decorating, Interior Design
I wanted my bedroom to feel more like a suite!

The Bedding Set is from Macy's - Oddly for some reason it photographs sort of 'brown' but the colors that actually run through this set are black, white, pink and purple (thankfully purchasers who reviewed it were kind enough to share this, which help solidify my decision as I ordered this set online not in store). The monogrammed pillowcases are from a Luxor Linens Valentino Sheet Set (press on the link to see my previous review of them) - and by the way the initials are 'T.A.I' not Taj (although I like to visit the Taj Mahal Casino when I go to Atlantic City!). The curtains are from Hayneedle and they are purple and grey (the purple in the curtains are picked up by the purple in the bedding set and dust ruffle) and the Buddha Wall Art is from Cost Plus World Market - I loved this piece so much I bought two of them and the other is in my Foyer so it's the first thing you see when you enter.

I love how cohesively it all comes together! Especially since all of the items were purchased very far apart from one another time wise and at different retailers.

The walls were freshly painted in Grey, A matte that has the lightest trace of blue in it and is making me all kinds of happy.

While there is way more to be done I have purged about 10 bags of stuff I no longer needed and I am loving my 'bedroom zen vibe'.

So there it is butterflies a peek at my boudoir!

Like Free Gift Giveaways? Looking for Creative Solutions to Refresh Your Space? Then by all means Read on!


You know how much Ascending Butterfly loves Empowerment and Life Improvement, and when something combines BOTH + Free Giveaways it's a total win/win in my book! The folks at Family Circle and Ikea are presenting 'Ikea Life Improvement Store Seminars' in two of their locations this weekend with Celebrity Designer Stephen Saint-Onge! Stephen will provide Creative Tips and Techniques on how to refresh and update your kitchen, plus event attendees will receive FREE Gift Giveaways! (I think this qualifies as awesomesauce + amazeballs combined). I don't know about you butterfly, but my kitchen definitely needs some help! Whether you have a super spacious kitchen and need a few how-to's or a super cramped space and can't figure out how to organize it, this event will certainly get you inspired and motivated!

Here is the skinny/Event Details:

My Take:

What a great way to get your home ready for Spring at either one of these super fun events! My kitchen is small and pretty cramped, and since I can't change spaces right now, any help in getting mine to look less cluttered would be super helpful to me!

Any NYC based bloggers going and interested in meeting up? Let me know!

Any Butterflies that do attend, please come back here and share what you learn!
