Believe it or not, the first five years we lived in this home, our mattress was on the floor. This bedroom was just always last on “the list.” You know how that goes. No one comes in your bedroom but you, right? Well, let me tell you, if this is your mentality, bump your bedroom way up on the list. Once I finished it, I questioned why we didn’t do it sooner. It became such a gorgeous retreat. I love Oprah’s quote, “Your home should rise up to meet you.” That’s how I feel when I walk in my bedroom. After a day with the kids- filled with sticky messes, scattered toys, and a whole lot of whining, this bedroom says, “Hey! You’re an adult! Come, put your feet up!”
Shown here are two different design choices. I recently went for a monochromatic look, and switched up the colorful pillows for the fresh black and white ones. I like how sleek the updated look is! And truthfully, as much as I LOVE color, I thought the bedroom would be the perfect spot to give the eyes a rest. Literally.
