Shopping For Bedding — White Sale

If your read my last post, then you already know the New Year is THE time to wipe the slate clean. January is all about getting organized and giving your home a refresh. It’s also the time to keep your eyes peeled for the ever popular White Sale. I for one have been on the lookout for some deals on new bedding for the guest room.

Over the last year, I’ve been trying to perfect that messy yet cozy looking bed in this space. Do you know what I’m talking about? The perfect “Pinterest” bed. Mixing and matching patterns, combining linen with cotton. As you can see, it’s pretty much been an epic fail. I’m ready to give up. It’s just not cohesive. One thing I’ve determined problematic is the bright white looks too stark against that earthy leather gym mat headboard. It needs to be warmed up. Maybe a blush or gold or ivory?

After purchasing a ceiling medallion and lighting last November, we finally installed it Saturday. You may have caught a few glimpses of the DIY on Instagram Stories, but if you missed it, here is the the full install in all its glory including the final reveal, which wound up looking killer.

After about 2.5 minutes into the install, The Boy said…and I quote, “I am loathing this already. I’m envisioning much cursing, sweating, and a trip or 7 to Home Depot in my near future.” He was right. There was 1 trip to Home Depot and some sweat involved. There was also, “please, please, pretty please with sugar on top” uttered which is how we curse in front of the small children, so one could argue there was foul language. But all in all, it was surprisingly simple.

Decorist Bedroom Design Project – Before & After Part 3

If you’ve been watching my Instagram, you’ve probably seen a couple sneak peeks of the guest bedroom design project. I moved towards a look that was out of my comfort zone. Right before teaming up with Decorist, I noticed I was obsessing over white and neutral spaces.  Pinning them like I was on fire. Maybe it was because I was also on color overload while redecorating the master bedroom in navy and pink? I don’t know, but flipped the switch, crossed my fingers and hoped for the best. Decorist hooked me up with Ashley Redmond, interior designer extraordinaire. I was psyched!
