Bedroom Tour

I know I've featured our bedroom before but there have been a few changes lately so I thought of sharing it with all of you. I am in awe myself of how I've filled our whole house of thrifted finds and things that we got for free from good people. I know you too will be surprised as I tell you the source of each item from the space. I will also be featuring every other room in the house on future posts.
But for now, it's our bedroom...

Forgive me for the blurry photos. I had no idea how difficult it was to take interior design photos until today. The room has only one window so there was no natural light coming in.

I love how our room resembles a bedroom that you would probably see in the 1800's, except for modern technology mixed in. It is quite magical when the candles are lit and moonlight shines in from the wooden blinds. I often imagine, as I lay on my bed that I was born many centuries ago. It makes me feel safe. I can't explain why.
Things on the photo:
the orange quilt was from Anthropologie, it's probably the most expensive thing we ever bought for the room at almost $300 (aside from the tv). I got it for my birthday around three years ago.

The goose down comforter was a hand me down, the same person who gave us the wooden moroccan style desk, chair, all the curtains, rods and wooden blinds in the whole house and wooden candle pillars (amongst other things you'll see around our house)

The wooden dresser was a yard sale find for only $3.00

This antique cabinet was from an estate sale, $150.00

The mirror, we have two, I found one at a thrift store for $6.00 and found another one from the same store, months later for the same price.

The LaLaLove You print was from Sparklepower. for $10.00
The vintage needle art below it, $3.00
Rembrandt Painting which I so love was a thrifted find for $15.00
Girl with a pearl earring on wood, antique find from etsy.
Paris wooden carving plaque, antique, thrifted for $4.00
I love the details on this old table.
One day, I was thinking of this alarm clock/radio that I had back in College. I used to stare at it during sleepless nights and I missed it so much. That same week, I found the same exact radio at a thrifting trip for $2.95. I dream good things to life.

The glass lamps, I have two for both sides of the bed, $5.00 each.

The metal (it's soo heavy!) sunburst mirror was also a hand me down. The antique tv console was a yard sale find for $3.00. Bose speakers for the tv, brand new, hand me down.

Future goals for the room, well, I really want to make it brighter, probably add some punches of color here and there. I'm thinking of painting the walls white too. The floors will also be painted white. What do you think?

I love the sunburst mirror, it's beautiful. And the goose comforter is so lovely. I love little hand-me-downs which have gone through several generations, they're the items which have the most character. xxx

I love the wall electrical outlet! (is that what it's called?)

Your room is lovely. But please don't pain the floor white. :o)
