Mini Makeovers & Giveaway Winner!

This post is a long time coming, as I'm sharing mini makeovers that took place in my house back in California before I left for school. 
First up is a few Ch-ch-ch-changes made in the guest room.

Two summer's ago I painted the coral wall....

And this past summer we got new bedding and new lamp from Pottery Barn {courtesy of my discount!} 

I love the impact it has in the room. The duvet is much more fresh and all the fluffy pillows really brighten up the room, too!

Next up is the family room...
We added some fun new pillows and a new table lamp.

Here is the old lamp... {excuse the Christmas snow globe...picture taken at Christmas!}!

A fresh fall-ish bouquet of flowers with a hurricane jar full of lemons and limes was a great way to transition into Autumn.  When I go home in a few weekends, the lemons and limes will be replaced with oranges and cinnamon sticks!

Have you made any small changes to a space in your home?

Pottery Barn Resources:
Katherine bedding & euro shams, flowered gray accent pillow, blue button pillow, Chelsea bedside lamp, Family room lamp & pillows-- out of stock
