Oh Eight Oh Nine
My daughter who just turned 8 has been requesting an update to her room -she’s had the same set up since age 5 so it’s time. Her taste and interests have changed.
Our changes will have to be in the details, because we won’t make any major furnishing changes, and we just painted about 3 years ago -and it’s in perfect condition. I also invested in high quality shades and curtains.
There are new fun ways to update the look without getting rid of the big investment pieces.
1. Add a High Quality Poster or Photo that Changes the Mood
Interior Philosophy gets this look right.
2. Change Those Drapes!
I am loving these Boho style Pom Pom curtains…..from Susie Watson Designs + Serena & Lily
3. Add Throw Pillows that Say Fun!
Zazzle, Aelfie, + Plusheez
4. Add Sheepskin for Cozy Style

Trending style Inspiration-Tunics
The tunic is a canvas for creativity for fashion designers, textile artists and more. Ultimately feminine in a cozy, flattering, and totally
unexpected way this dress piece is suitable for all ages and all body types. The tunic looks pretty with layers, such as long “boyfriend” style sweaters, long cozy sweaters, and with complementary tanks as well. Great with leggings, and if long enough cozy tights, jeans, and more. In the summer, beautiful at the beach, or with shorts or alone.
