I love the feel of a mostly white bedroom. It just feels so calming and peaceful. The only issue is that I have 2 dogs that I
can’t stand love having on my bed. So I usually bleach my comforter once a week to keep it looking nice and white! It’s also important to me to have a cozy, fluffy, inviting bed. That’s where I spend a lot of my time working on the blog, relaxing, and sleeping, so it has to be a happy place!
i always like to have a book or my kindle by the bed
that picture on the left is from way back in college…look at that white hair!
i’ve had that candle for so many years. i probably should have used a new one for this picture, but this is real life, people. you’re getting the real me who has a burned up old candle by the bed.
i used to have a matching lamp on both sides…but oliver ate the cord to one of them. literally ate it.
Since I’m not made of money, I couldn’t really afford a whole new bedroom decor look for the new apartment, so I just had to use what I had and switch things around. I’m happy with the way things came out, and as I can add little new pieces in here and there, I will!
when i accepted the smaller room, i didn’t realize there was no ceiling fan. i bought that standing fan from amazon and it has been a life saver this summer!
i shut the door to take pictures of the bookshelf and oliver got his feelings hurt. the corgi print on the wall is from my best friend’s fiancé, romain. he’s a keeper!
more candles i’ve had forever + favorite books (my old adviser wrote the teen life textbook and gave it to me as a gift when i graduated!)
all my yoga books from teacher training/gifts, coffee books from when i wanted to start a coffee shop, and all my notebooks for allllll the lists. goals and dreams, man.
My sister had the white bookshelf from IKEA in her old apartment. It doesn’t really fit anywhere else in our apartment now (our living room is awkwardly shaped and my couch is way too big for the space at the moment), so I stuck it behind my bedroom door and I’ve been happy with it! It has a mix of mine and my sister’s books and it gave me some extra space for my laptop, notebooks, and a couple of decor items.
eventually i’ll beg andrew to mount my tv, but for now, this works.
pretty little things (always a nice touch to have chocolates lying around!)
my rustic corner! shelves from target, picture frame was a gift from andrew (the picture is from the first time he helped me move! what a guy.) the j is from my friend kelly (i think target), and the leap quote you can read about here.
just rounding everything out and coming full circle with a picture of the doggies on my bed!
As mentioned in my last apartment tour from the old apartment, all of my bedroom furniture is from Ashley Furniture (except for the IKEA bookshelf).
So that’s my room! Finally (mostly) complete. Not pictured: The corner of my down comforter Bruno chewed and I held together with a binder clip until I could sew it. Also not pictured: The corners of every pillow case and the corners of my sheets that are chewed off. I’m starting to sense a pattern here…
