Bedroom Update

We have made a couple of changes to our bedroom since my last post.  

The first major change was getting a king size bed.  Best decision ever! We are on the hunt for a headboard, but I keep going back and forth about making one.  That won't happen for a while... 

We also added new window treatments.  I am so happy with the ones we got from Ikea.  They are thick and nice and such a good price for the quality.  Good job Sweden.

A little side note about the rods-I bought them silver and spray painted them brass.  It's a more matte brass, so it's not like HEY 80s THANKS FOR BEING IN MY BEDROOM!

We also added the Ikea light. Ikea why are you so amazing??  My favorite thing about it is the shadows it adds.  
She's all pretty and dainty, and then you turn it on and boom, she's moody and awesome.

One of our favorite things about our house was how big the master bedroom is.  There is a nook for the bed and then on the opposite side a nook for another living area.  

In the living area I have a vintage tufted sofa, chair and tv.  Other than that, I haven't done much with it yet.  I need a lot of art work. So that's what's next on my list.  

The only artwork that we do have up are above each of our nightstands.  

They are from The Black Apple on Etsy.  I love her work.  What is weird and completely unintentional is that they have set the color scheme for the whole room.  I bought the orange throw the other day and noticed that everything was in the same color scheme as the two prints.  That subconscious is amazing!

Do you guys have any favorite Etsy shops for Art? If so send them my way! Etsy is my absolute favorite to buy art from.


  1. Why does Ikea have to be so far away!?!!

    1. I know. It's so sad! They are building one in Kansas City though! I think it's supposed to be done in 2014?

  2. I notice you don't have a bed skirt, probably because they are to floofy and distracting. A great alternative is a fitted sheet with a fun print or burst of color! Your room looks darling! I love the light fixture!

    1. Lauren- I love that idea! Thank you so much! I've been wanting to cover up the bed, but couldn't figure out an alternative to a bed skirt. You just cracked the riddle!
