Luxe Details from Ikea

Since installing our chandelier two weeks ago, my bedroom has been calling out for some other luxe details.  I know that Ikea isn't necessarily the first place you think of for finding luxurious finishing touches, however, when my mom and I were shopping there last weekend, we spotted two Euro size gray velvet pillow cases and a furry white flokati.  They are the perfect accessories for elevating the look of our master bedroom for not a lot of money.




Small changes, big impact!



Here is what the room looked like before the Ikea additions:




And just for fun, here is what the room looked like when I first saw it 18 months ago.  Yes, that is a padded fabric wall behind the bed, which was held up by a bazillion staples.
