The past couple weeks I’ve been feeling pretty “blah” about my bedroom. I never put much energy into decorating it because I’m usually working elsewhere and only see what a travesty it is when it’s bedtime and I’m too sleepy to care. The only furnishings in it are my bed (which, up until this weekend only had one sheet, no comforter!), a “nightstand” made from a storage box, a crooked painting, and an enormous dog crate. I’m actually laughing as I type this, because I’m pretty sure I just described a bachelor pad.
Now that the weather is getting a little cooler (meaning I probably need more than a single sheet heh), I thought it would be a good time to put some love into my bedroom and make it a place that I actually enjoy being. Here’s what I’m envisioning: I want it to be bright (don’t we all?), full of textures (the duvet I just got is linen and I adore the texture it already adds to the room!), and sprinkled with some colorful, warm patterns. I also want to add a large helping of plants, wooden materials, and some well-chosen art. Oh, and I’ve been growing smitten with fairy lights — are they cute or tacky? I really can’t decide, but I am definitely liking the comfy vibe they give off! I’m excited to make my bedroom into more of a home sanctuary — somewhere that I genuinely love retreating to each night, and that perhaps I could even work in from time to time.
Where are your favorite places to shop for bedroom decor? I’ve been checking out West Elm, CB2, Anthropologie, and IKEA, but I’d love to know your favorites for smaller stores that have beautiful details.
