{ Vision for Upstairs + GIVEAWAY! }

Giveaway winner is Lyndsay 
(comment #3 was randomly drawn using this website
Congratulations Lyndsay!!

The drywall is ALMOST done!! I have some amazing family members who are extremely giving of their time and talents and because of that the drywall finishing is very close to being done. I am always trying to think of how I am going to decorate up there and I thought that because I had so much fun doing the idea board for the living room that I would share a little of my plan for the upstairs bedroom.

We already have a few of these Trofast storage units from IKEA that we had in our last house. On our last trip we picked up an Expedit unit as well. These are great for storing kids toys. I also picked up some of the storage bins in their blue color and a lack side table to match. 

EXPEDIT Shelving unit IKEA Choose whether you want to place it vertically or horizontally to use it as a shelf or sideboard.

LACK Side table IKEA The high-gloss surfaces reflect light and give a vibrant look. Easy to assemble. Lightweight and easy to move.DRÖNA Box IKEA Easy to pull out and lift as the box has handles. Perfect for everything from newspapers to clothes.

I already picked up some curtains but I just came across these curtains at IKEA and I am thinking that I just might have to swap them out for what I already have since they seem to coordinate perfectly with the table and bins that I already purchased.

JANNIKE Panel curtain IKEA The pattern is slightly raised from the background, creating a decorative effect.

Because this room will be home to my five year old boy and 2 year old girl, I have to stick with more gender neutral color choices. So what I picked out so far has turquoise, green, and blue with a little bit of orange here and there. I am thinking if I go with those curtains I will paint the wooden beds that I picked up on craigslist a grey color and the walls will be a nice white with maybe a fun accent wall. I still need to find bedding that will go perfect with these color choices so if any of you run across something, send me the info!

I've been busy picking little things up for this room off Etsy and planning on doing a few DIY projects too. Which I will share in a post as I start to actually decorate in there. I dont want to spoil all my plans here! However, I really want to share my latest purchase that I am so excited about. They are three printable 8x10's. Awesome huh?!

These are downloaded prints that I purchased from Stephanie's Etsy shop

I think these prints will look so adorable in the room and I am so anxious to see everything all come together.
I loved working with Stephanie and her stuff is all so amazing and the convenience of having an instant download is awesome. Great for quick changes to decor or maybe even a last minute Christmas gift as well.

So in the spirit of giving I am 
Giving away one print from Rosie and Violets!!
