But today, I thought I'd share a few bedroom updates. I've been moving through the house changing out the decor of the rooms from winter to spring. In the case of my bedroom, however, I decided to make like mother nature and skip from winter to summer (spring still hasn't arrived here in Chicagoland):
I added these botanical prints that I've had forever and never hung anywhere:
...and a little piece of coral that moves around the house...
If you've been around for awhile, you've probably noticed that I've been adding a lot of living plants around the house (here and here). I feel like it adds immediate life and interest to a room (cheaply, too). So, to add a little green to this area, I added my new $5 fern friend I brought home from Walmart:
Ok, so this is the only area of the bedroom you will get to see for now, because my son decided to take a nap in my bed today! However, I've a new found love for ferns, and thought I'd share some Pinterest fern inspiration. I feel like all you need to do is add a fern or even pressed ferns to a room to make it much more interesting. Take a peek:

Do you have a fern in your backyard? Why not add a few clippings to a collection of bottles? I'm saving my Blu Italy sparkling water bottles from Trader Joes and will probably do this as a display on my kitchen counter at some point this summer:
I love these old dough bowls (or whatever they are) and hope to find a few this summer at the flea market:
Ferns also look great in outdoor rooms. Costco happens to be selling huge hanging fern planters just like this for $12 right now. I can't hang them on our deck because they would likely fry back there, but if you don't have a south or west facing deck it would probably work well:
I think this is just gorgeous and exactly the type of planter I would choose:
What do you think, do you like the look of ferns in and outdoors?
