New Year, New Room Additions

I've switched up my room about a million times since I have lived in this house and my style keeps evolving every year. Aside from the fact that my old duvet cover had paw prints and scratches on it from Cooper, I wanted to change up some interior pieces in my room this year that I am so obsessed with. It's refreshing to switch things up a bit and I am always looking for new home pieces and accents to add to my room. 
I was in sort of a desperate need for a new duvet cover. What I love about duvet covers is that, well, they're just a cover and are easily replaceable. I had my blue and white one before, but I really wanted one that had more color to it and that would bring in some of the pinks, greens, and greys around my room. I found this one at West Elm and it was actually on sale, which was a score. I love the geometric print and think it pulls everything together.  
I was searching around for a really nice and minimal side table lamp. I wanted something that had an arm and wasn't just a lampshade. A lot of the desk-lamp style lamps I found were pretty pricey. However, Ikea had some really nice ones. This was one of their "work lamps", but I think it adds a really nice look to the side table. The gold accents tie in the other gold accents I have around my room. 
On my opposite side table, I added a wooden tray from the Target Dollar Spot section and my gold clock and some small vases I also found at Target. I just love having trays around because they add depth and texture. This tray has a mirror on the base of it and gold handles, which are really elegant touches. 

I also wanted a smaller rug in my room because the baroque, black and white area rug wasn't doing my room justice. It was far too big for my space and I opted for this one I found at TJ Maxx for less than twenty bucks. 
I also felt like my bookshelf needed to be rearranged and I just wasn't feeling the basket I had on it. So when I was at TJ Maxx, I also picked up a gold jewelry box and I think it was the perfect addition to the shelf. I love how you can see the jewelry and I've actually never really owned my own jewelry box before. 
Finally, I added a new "fake" plant that I also bought from TJ Maxx. I love it because of the concrete vase that's dipped in copper paint and I decided to put some cute copper fairy lights around it, too. I just think even if you add fake botanicals around you're room, it makes it much more homier and balances everything out. 

I also added some fake eucalyptus branches around my room. I love their soft green color and leaves. They're definitely trending in many interiors. What's a change you made to your space recently?
