Personal Shopper: Grown-Up Furnishings for a Childhood Bedroom

Kiera writes:"Ladies, you've helped me out a couple of times in the past and hit it out of the park every time. I'm hoping you can help me with my latest (and greatest) challenge. I've recently made the decision to go back to school, but living on Kraft Dinner and Ramen noodles for four years wasn't fun the first time around, so this time I'm moving home - bummer. The bright side is I have free reign to redecorate my childhood bedroom - turns out I don't still like having magazine clippings all over my wall. My only problem is, I don't know where to start! My furniture can't really change, and it is all a dark chocolate wood stain, and the floors are a blond-ish hardwood, but everything else is fair game. I don't like things that are super girlie (pink and purple flowers all over are not happening). I do like greys, greens, and blues, and like to keep things pretty simple. Can you pretty please help me do a grown-up bedroom makeover?"

Free reign to redecorate? I'm green with envy. Even keeping the original furniture, you have practically a blank canvas, so go nuts - because we'll all be living vicariously through this one!

1. Zigzag Curtains ($39)
2. Filigree Cotton Quilt ($158)
3. Cirrus Sheet Set ($128, available in Twin only)
4. Sarasota Grey Rug ($265)
5. Aqua Interlace Giclee Brushed Steel Table Lamp ($100)
6. Bubbled Glass Knob ($8) - you might have to stick with your furniture, but you can always update it a little!
7. 1931 Big Ben Alarm Clock ($40)
