So, this is pretty much the space we live in. For having such a big house, we mostly just hang out in our bedroom. We watch TV here, eat in here, and sometimes I literally work from this bed all. day. long...I know, I know, its bad sleep hygiene, whatever.
Also, it never, ever, looks this pristine. Reality: plates stacked on the dresser, 3-4 empty coffee mugs, Ruby's toys everywhere, and a handful of clothing articles sprinkled about the floor. BUT, now its captured in pristine condition forevermore, and it makes me happy to look at the photos.
Our headboard was there when we moved in and we thought it we cool, so it stayed.
Paint colors were also there previously (other than the dining room and my office, we really haven't done much painting. Previous owners had seriously good taste!).
The rug I snagged of FB Marketplace for $75. I'll let that register, a 9'x13' brand spanking new jute rug ---- for 75 bucks!! Lets just say I was pleased with myself.
Dresser is from our last house and a piece I picked up on Craig's List. I love the piece, and at certain times of the day the colors are simply magnificent.
Nightstands and pharmacy lamps are from Allmodern.
Small bookshelf is one I stole from my parents in high school and painted white (its ugly brown veneer beneath). It's not the prettiest little thing, but it's functional!
Cafe table was a gift from my parents at our wedding shower. It's really meant to be an outdoor set, but we've enjoyed having a table in our room. It makes the space super functional!
Bedding, curtains, and majority of accessories are all from Homegoods (my jam!) with a few vintage/thrift finds mixed in.
Matching pieces of art are framed pages of photographer Chris Cox's book Beholder. Full disclosure, they're hung sideways...but it's what the space needed! I love the pop of color, which, if you know me, is actually not my thing. I'm not a huge color lover! But in this space, it does in fact make me happy.
Super cool frames are from HyperOptik on Wealthy Street in Grand Rapids!
