Allie's Room Traditional to Modern

I have always been a big fan of traditional styles for interiors, but it seems like there are times that I am drawn to more modern decor.

I first decorated Allie's room with a traditional, cottage theme, using antiques and lots of white.

Plastic doves - thrifted and painted white:
Dollar store frames - painted white, fabric and paper inside
Glass figurines from Allie's Great-grandma
Wood letters painted white:
Allie's blessing dress made be her Great-grandma:
White shelves from Ross:
Cross stitched quote from my sister, frame painted white:
Random flowers thrifted, vase thrifted $1, mirror thrifted $3
Bird - Big Lots, painted white
Jewelry box - thrifted 75 cents, painted white
Pillow - lace thrifted, striped fabric from Home Fabrics
Fabric scrap from her bedspread, fabric from Home Fabrics
Frame - thrifted $2, baby outfit from Allie's grandma
These I found for 50 cents each at D.I.
Organizing boxes 3 for $9 on sale at Roberts
Green velvet hangers $2 thrifted

Then I decided to mix things up and give it a more modern look:

Curtains - bedsheets
Decorative rod - thrifted and painted white $1
Pillows- made here
In these frames I put some of the horse pictures I took:
Remember these butterflies?
This wall project I posted here
 
Rocking horse thrifted $5 and painted white
Glass dog $1 painted white

And the next project - to do her room now.  The color scheme is blue and pink.  I think you
 will like it :)

I am posting this HERE

PS Go check out the adorable newborn I took pictures of this last weekend. :)

She was born on my daughters 1st birthday! I know other people have been born on the 16th before, but kind of fun to find floating around my link party! Thanks for linking to Topsy Turvy Tuesday's!
