WELCOME TO MY DREAM BEDROOM! I saw a quote once that said, “Always remember to fall asleep with a dream and wake up with a purpose.” How perfect is that, y’all!? It’s so true. And there’s no better place to drift off to la-la land than a beautiful bedroom.
My current room is the first time I’ve ever had a bedroom be JUST a bedroom—in the past, my bedrooms have doubled as offices, storage rooms, you name it. But now, I have my dream bedroom– this space is serene, solely dedicated to winding down and getting my zzzzzzz’s on (Okayyyy, and also trying on outfits, taking selfies, etc…but I’ll get to that more in a bit).
The room needs a bit more work. I will be mounting the mirrors, adding a rug and curtains, looking for a chair to my vanity, adding art work above the headboard, and possibly a throw on my bed for added texture.
FAV PLACE TO SHOP FURNITURE. I owe much of my bedroom’s aesthetic to Wayfair, where I purchased a large majority of my pieces. Guys, Wayfair is like my fave furniture and décor site. Not only is it so easy to navigate and search for exactly what you’re after, but the shipping is super reasonable, and delivery is so quick (like two days, y’all!). I love it! I’m all about less hassle, more “sassle” (Yep, I just made that word up, but it sounded #Sassy to me!).
The centerpoint of my bedroom is definitely my bed…and what makes it so ah-mazing is the mattress of my dreamzzz. I use the Nora mattress from Wayfair, which is 12” of pure heaven. It’s constructed of four soft foam layers that contour and support your body while you sleep. Honestly, I have gotten so much better sleep with this mattress than ever before not only because of its comfort, but the fact that there’s little disturbance with movement.
And the best part (besides the fact that its price is way less than competitors)….wait for it….is that it has built-in cooling technology that regulates body temperature. For someone like me that gets wicked hot when I sleep, this feature is basically amazeballs. Bring on the chill!
I use Wayfair for furniture all over my house, but lemme tell ya more about my bedroom pieces….
INSPIRATION. The inspiration for the space was a bit Parisian, with hints of modern touches, such as wood accents. I wanted my bedroom to have that light and airy feel that I love, so the aesthetic I went with is bright yet soft, with lots of blush pink and gold colors.
BEDDING. My bedding is pretty neutral—the blush throw blanket and pillows are from Allswell (another site I LOVE). Next to the bed, my nightstands are a mix of rustic and modern, with gold accents. I love the white lamps on both tables because they’re fresh, bright, and add symmetry to the room (hello, Type-A personality here!). Gold mirrors bring out a bit of my glam side.
TV CONSOLE. So, I know that Oprah and all the other feng shui gurus say you shouldn’t have a TV in your bedroom…but forget that, a girl’s gotta unwind in bed with a little Friends marathon from time to time! I love the gold console that my TV sits on, and I decorated the rest of the surface with my favorite candles and books.
READING NOOK. Speaking of books, I added a reading chair (also from Wayfair!) next to my bed that is a bit more modern in style, and balances the room perfectly.
FLOOR LENGTH MIRROR. Finally, the finishing touch is my floor mirror that I scored off of Craigslist (can you believe it!?). This is where I do most of my outfit try-ons and take all those lovely selfies you guys see. In my opinion, every girl NEEDS a full length mirror!
AHH I am so in love with how everything has come together! I honestly could not have done it without the amazing Kimber from kwfashionconsulting.com. Even just having insight on how to transform a space, or the details that tie a room together are so important. She helped me make my vision a reality and I’m so excited to finish it up together!
Also, having a great furniture retailer was super helpful. Take my word for it—check out Wayfair for the best styles and unbeatable prices for whatever room vision you have.
