I’m so so SO excited to finally be able to share my final bedroom design with you! After so many months of traveling, furniture delays, and the like, it’s finally FINISHED. I worked with Havenly on the design process… I couldn’t be happier with how my bedroom turned out! It was actually just featured on Style Me Pretty and Brit + Co, where I answered a bunch of questions about my vision for the room, the process, etc. So be sure to check those out (here & here) if you’re interested. But now for the pictures… ALL OF THE PICTURES. Like, 67 of them to be exact. It was too hard to narrow down!
After living in a studio apartment in the Lower East Side in New York City for most of my post-grad life (#chaos), I knew I wanted to create a sense of serenity in my bedroom when I moved to Chicago last summer. Bright, airy, and feminine are words that kept coming to mind, especially when thinking of how I wanted to feel each morning when I woke up in my new space. As you know, I have a penchant for all things fun and feminine. I wanted my bedroom to feel grown-up, but also have a sense of whimsy. And since I’m not having to cater to any male design opinions just yet, I knew I wanted to have fun and inject some feminine personality!
I’ve had my eye on this feminine dresser for years and finally pulled the trigger when I moved to Chicago. It’s one of those pieces that sets the tone for the entire room!
Paris is my favorite city in the world! Since I was going for a blush color story, I searched and searched for a print that was just what I was looking for with that rosy hue. I read a lot about Feng Shui as I was designing my room and you’re supposed to place an inspiring image across from your lign of sight in bed so it’s the first thing you see when you wake up. What’s better than Paris?! I knew an Eiffel Tower image would be a bit too cliché for my liking, and it’s really the Parisian architecture that I can’t get enough of during my visits. So this Parisian façade is perfect in so many ways!
I really wanted to be able to choose one of my own images that I’ve taken in Paris over the years, but searching on the web seemed so much easier than sifting through thousands of images, editing a ton of them, sending them to a printer and hoping that the quality was high enough. Next time, though!
I had my fair share of full-sized, budget-friendly headboards in New York, so I love the foundation that this queen-sized bed gives the room. I chose a wingback version for a little bit more detail versus a traditional rectangular headboard. It’s seriously *so* sturdy, too! I was nervous the quality would be iffy with how affordable it is, but I’m still in love with it six years later.
I’d found a rug that I was in love with, but it happened to be $6,000 – not happening! (It’s sold out now, but you can see it on Pinterest here!) I scoured and searched the web for something similar in an accessible price range and ordered so many different rug samples before I settled on this one from Pier 1 that I absolutely love! It’s so soft, too.
(2022 Update: Similar rugs can be found here, here, here, & here!)
Can we talk about my sheets for a second?! I’ve had some really comfortable sheets throughout my life… I’ve maybe even a sheet snob at times. But oh my gosh, you guys. These Boll & Branch sheets are hands-down my favorite sheets that I’ve ever owned or slept on. They’re so, so soft and honestly get better with every wash! There’s seriously nothing better than crawling into my bed at night… It’s the best! Probably has something to do with my Tuft & Needle mattress, too. (Okay, enough talking about sleep. Currently writing this at 2:15am and my bed sounds way too enticing!)
