I'd like to state that I do not recommend decorating your room with really cheap furniture. I just wanted to give a new perspective on those stunning magazine pages that seem "impossible." If you were my (real-life) client and you handed me the bedroom picture I would first ask to go shopping in your attic (or your mother's) and then tell you to start reading. In fact, that brings up my last (but least $) item for the room:
Here's the deal- I have so many pictures (scanned/saved/etc) sitting in folders on my tiny macbook- I mean TONS. It's gotten out of control. I stumbled upon one of my folders titled "twins" with almost 100 pictures of fraternal twins I have found on the internet.
"Twins" meaning rooms with twin beds-- and I haven't shared any of them with you!! I am guilty of hoarding and I apologize.
To mend this problem I will slowly begin to share all of my folders with you. So please enjoy sometwenty-eight pictures of twin bedrooms that have appealed to me over the years. I omitted a good bit of them and was going to get rid of more but then I asked myself: Why? This is good for me and for you. (1) Whenever you need a resource for how you want your twin bedroom to look you can come here. And (2) I can finally "relocate" all of my pictures that are slowing down this computer.
So, please cast your votes for your favorite twin bedroom!
And like this previous post you voted on, I will piece together the winning bedroom on a budget! So make sure you vote. (Even if you have never commented before! I welcome my shy readers--you can put an anonymous name if you wish.)
Warning: You will love so many of these rooms that trying to keep track of which one is your favorite will exhaust you. Just give me your gut fave- or jot some down on a piece of paper as you scroll down.
Today you will find me over at Style Blueprint, home of Nashville style! Liza, one of my super-stylish clients, put me up to a challenge to spruce up my guest bedroom on a budget.
Here's a preview:
Also, if you live in Nashville (or anywhere else for that matter!) you need to add styleblueprint to one of your daily reads. You know those people that find fabulous deals and then keep them to themselves???? I don't either. I think it has to do with living in the south... but this blog is like a secret (southern) club that shares all sorts of deals and steals!
Liza (and Elizabeth), thank you putting me up to the challenge and allowing me to guest-host on your awesome blog!!
To all my readers- check it out. You won't regret it!
Last year Southern Accents had an article called "One Headboard, Three Looks." I remember this article because I always find it interesting which "look" people prefer. I also remember this article because it contained none other than: My ideal bed.
One of these pictures is what I want my bed to look like. I'll tell you at the end.
But before I tell you which one I covet- I want you to pick your favorite and let me know in the comments section.
(because we can all agree that it's fabulous... and bejeweled!* (with nailhead)

#1 Blanketed in White
#2 Shades of Gray
#3 An Appealing Pattern
Which one do you choose?
Or if you can't see yourself sleeping in these beds you can choose to veto all of them.
Which one doI choose?
You probably could have guessed...
#2. Love at first sight...
So I did what any scatter-brained, magazine inspired, have-to-have-it-NOW, interior designer would do:
I started shopping.
Then I quickly realized that this #2 bed would not only empty my wallet- but it would flat out destroy our nest egg.
