LILY'S BEDROOM MAKEOVER
I am so excited that I get the chance to tell you about my dream room! My name is Lily, the daughter of THE wonderful Living With Landyn, for those of you that didn’t know. First of all, let me tell you, shopping with her is so fun. We've always had a great time together. Since I am going into high school this year, I thought it would be good to start fresh with a good theme. I was spending most of my time on Pinterest or VSCO looking at room inspiration. Soon enough I was crushing on blush pink, cacti, and llamas. My birthday is coming up (14 whooo hooo), and that’s what I TRULY wanted. In order for this room renovation to take place, we had to do a little shopping. Did I say a little? I meant a lot. Thank goodness for all of those gift cards I’ve been saving up for years!
Originally, we wanted to renovate the closet first, then the room. But when we started putting things together, we found ourselves taking bits and pieces of things from the closet and putting them in my room.. Our first stop was World Market, and let me tell you, when I walked in I fell IN LOVE with the desk. I was like mom, this is the one! The light wood and gold legs quickly caught my eye. After walking around for a little, we saw an adorable air plant that we loved for the shelf. We also found an awesome gold grid thing to clip pictures to. This would add to the AMAZING gallery wall that my mom put together herself when I was spending time with my nana and papa in Florida. Those items are just a few that we found during that trip. And yes, we went back and forth between stores that we’ve been to a thousand times. It’s not like we hit the jackpot every time, but we did pretty good!
Another store that we obviously would hit was HomeGoods. You guys know my mom loves it, but LET ME TELL YOU, I love it now too. Everything in the store, made me want to buy everything. I think I found my new place. Anyways, that was THE spot for pillows. We probably wanted to buy twenty pillows, but I don’t think the gift cards could cover all of that. We bought pillows that ranged from blush, to creme, to textured, to tasseled. So many, right? We also found this amazing white leather chair that is ALL THE THINGS. It’s beyond comfortable for school, and sitting in your room for three hours doing homework. High school, am I right? I’m sitting in it right now writing this. Another thing we found was this awesome wicker light that creates a warm glow in the room at night. It’s so fun, and it could totally spice up any room. We also bought a Buddha man that allows you to put a candle in it for those nights you are feeling zen. We could all use one of those.
Ok. Marshalls is amazing too. We found great things for the room there as well. We found a CACTUS light for the wall. AMAZING! It’s so cute and I’m in love. We also found these two paintings for the wall. One says “I saw that” - Karma. My mom and I died laughing, she insisted that we’d get it. She said those are good words to live by. The other one is blush, white, and gold. It says Love and I think it fits the room perfectly. We also found great cacti there in the cutest pots. We both had fun displaying them around the room. After going down isles and isles in Marshalls we came across a wooden tray that we hung on the wall. Its so nice and adds a good amount of depth to the wall. That mom, she's so smart.
After a quick Starbucks stop and many Insta stories later, we made it to Target. My favorite store in the entire world is Target. I don’t know what it is about it, but it has everything you could ever need. THEIR HOME DEPARTMENT is just everything. They have the cutest items and it’s hard not to spend the entire day there. Believe me, we’ve done it. We bought these two paintings of cacti and I love them. They both incorporate a bit of blush, which matches the theme perfectly. We bought a sign that says #SQUADGOALS and I’m obsessed. It is so cute and it just adds a great touch above my bed. We love a little gold in our lives. Ha! My favorite purchase of the entire shopping spree was the LLAMA! It is so perfect, and it’s name is Ladorna. Don’t ask. Anyways, it is the cutest thing I’ve ever seen and I just knew that I needed it. Even the kids section has great finds. Who knew? I think my new spirit animal is a llama.
If your daughter is ever begging to redo her bedroom, consider this theme. You won’t regret it. It’s trendy and llamas will never go out of style. I don’t want to leave my room much anymore, it's so pretty and I love it so much, that I’m taking it to college with me, and yes, even the llama. My mom and I have had so much fun doing this room together, and we definitely have had some quality time together. We both are so proud of it and happy that we could share our experience with you!
