Good morning and thank goodness it’s Friday!
My plans for the day are to get this blog post up (if you’re reading, yay I did it!) make some banana bread with the super-ripe bananas in the pantry, mop the floors, and take care of the flowers. They need some severe deadheading and water this afternoon.
My goal for yesterday was to get started with organizing the master bedroom and making it feel a bit cozier. The reason I labeled this blog with “part one” is because it’s nowhere near finished. I’m on the hunt for a new rug; the curtains need to be hung on the other wall, we have to bring up our T.V. console (the one we used in the living room in the other house), find art for above the headboard, I’m going to whitewash the bedframe lightly, and eventually find new end tables. These are the tables I’ll use in the downstairs guest bedroom. We just needed something in the meantime. All of those things will happen over the next few months or maybe a year! That is why I wanted to share an update today instead of waiting that long!
My goal for my bedroom and most of the house is to keep it light and airy. This is the one room in the house that I needed to be cozy, creamy, and inviting. I really felt that “modern cottage” theme while picking out things for this bedroom. I went with a soft blue quilted comforter for the summer months but will change that out for something warmer during fall and winter. Searching for the perfect rug has also been a struggle, but now that stores are opening up here, it may get a bit easier when I decide to go search for one.
I think it’s my dogs that have inspired my colors in the room. I love that ivory and oak theme. 😊
I’m still deciding on the lamps. That is why you’ll see two different lamps throughout these photos. The black ones are the old gold lamps that I painted, and I can’t even remember where I bought the other ones (most likely Home Goods)
The quilted white fluffy pillows and ivory waffle quilt at the foot of the bed is from PiuBelle Premier matelasse coverlet, which can be found on Amazon! I found the pillows at Homegoods, googled the brand, and found the matching quilt online. When your HG opens up in your area, it’s a great place to look for them.
The quilted blanket is from Target!
The striped pillows with tassels are from Elements by Erin Gates.
The light fixture is from Kichler. This is what I think brings the entire room together. Kichler sent us all the lights for our new home, and I cannot wait until you see each piece. The lights brought so much character to our spaces, and I love designing the room based on the lights. This light is cozy and romantic, which is what I love the bedroom to feel like.
This is the Taulbee 6 Light Oval Pendant with Weathered Zinc.
We chose very modern lights for the rest of our house, but I wanted this light to be timeless and elegant. It adds the coziest lighting no matter what time of day it is. It is for sure the statement piece this room needed.
I let Kyle hang the curtains because I have a different style of hanging things. I stick a nail in the wall and go with it. He is much better at measuring, searching for studs, and using the proper nails. I’m forbidden from hanging ANYTHING by myself in this house. 😂
The end tables are from Hobby Lobby.
We are going to put them in the downstairs room eventually, but they work in this space for now! They are not wide enough for our master bedroom, and I have my eyes on a set, but I’m waiting on a sale 🤞 My chair is an old Home Goods find. I’ve had it for so long, and it’s still one of my favorite accent pieces.
The curtains are DKNY Ivory. I didn’t want blackout because I love sunlight shining through no matter what time of day it is. The rods are black, and wood themed from Umbra.
Target now has a feature on their website where you can upload your photo and insert their products in your space. I kind of love how these paintings look above the bed! What do you think?
I can’t wait to curl up this evening with a book in my room. I feel so cozy now. ♥️
Thank you for stopping by to check out today’s home decor blog post. I’m excited to keep sharing updates on all the transformations throughout the house. And don’t worry, I’ve been filming TONS of things for future youtube videos. 😊 Have the best weekend! I’m going to try to hop on here this weekend to blog the stir fry or chicken nugget recipe. Right now, my days are a bit unorganized, so hopping on here when I can have become the new routine—I kind of love the casualness of it.
Questions for you!
