ORC Finale: Blue & White Guest Room

Welcome to the Last Day of the One Room Challenge:  
where 20 bloggers have redecorated one room in six weeks.
Here's the finished product!

It started out like this...
with a blue and white ticking upholstered bed.

 In this small bedroom, I want guests to feel a bit surprised 
and enveloped by all the fun, leafy patterns.
By keeping the colors in the same family and 
using white bedsheets and blankets, it calms the effect a bit.

As a recap, I have been doing this on a budget:
• already had the bed and light fixtures
• Stenciled the wall for about $35
• the curtain fabric was $10/yd
• painted an old mirror I already had
• the white quilt is from Target's Shabby Chic line
• the blue quilt is from a Ralph Lauren outlet about five years ago
• the hemmed stitched sheets are from Garnet Hill 
(on sale--not on their website now)
Since the guest room is in blue and white, 
I added some blue and white elements to the adjoining bathroom.
Here you can see the custom decorative pillows 
added this week...made by Woody Liana.
Note: her shop will be restocked after she finishes a big custom order, so check back.
What I especially love about them is that they 
can reverse for a different look.
The standard sham in front is made with Schumacher's "Samark and Ikat" using different parts of the pattern for the front and back.  The leaf patterned side of the 22" square is made from 
Martyn Lawrence Bullard's "Kaba Kaba" in linen.
In reverse...
The paisley side of the 22" square pillow is made with a Les Indiennes linen (sorry, it's discontinued).

So, which is your favorite pillow combination?
I really can't decide.
Circle and Leaf or Stripe and Paisley?

Thank you, Linda from 
Calling It Home for organizing this fun
and motivating six week challenge.
