I truly wanted to make our bedroom a retreat- someplace cozy, filled with pictures, with a quite corner to read a book or drink coffee. Daniel easily wins the award for being the most easy-going person and I certainly can be quite particular and vocal. Therefore, I felt like it was reasonable to respect Daniel’s main wishes for the room: keep the bed in its current position (for feng shui purposes), no white furniture, and no color schemes featuring pink.
You probably are sensing that I love neutral color schemes, with touches of color, but a beige bedroom seemed too boring. We settled on green and had fun picking our favorites. The winner was Valspar’s Ballroom Dancing, such a fitting name after our sprint to learn basic ballroom dancing before our wedding.
We purchased IKEA nightstands off Nextdoor earlier this year, and decided to purchase matching dressers. I love the styling of the Hemnes line- a touch of modernity without clashing with my more traditional style. God bless Daniel for having the patience to assemble IKEA furniture- no amount of curse words could have gotten me through that task 😉
We finished the room with a few other additions- a pair of lights my parents were no longer using, a carpet we bought from Nextdoor, and a sitting chair from Wayfair. We styled the room with pictures from our engagement and wedding, as well as a Brian Andreas print which previously hung in my office, and a watercolor my dad gave me as a souvenir from Russia.
With busy lives, it is so nice to come home to a space that feels like a retreat.
Hope you love it too!
