Hi friends! It has been a hot minute since I have blogged. I’m just going to put it out there, I am not good at this whole social media/blogging thing when it comes to being planned out and consistent. Yall, it isn’t my gift, and i’m not going to try and lie and say it is!:) I can organize a cabinet all day long, but a calendar where I plan ahead? Yeah, I need some serious help! But I am committed to getting better, and in honor of that commitment, I’m blogging today!
I wanted to give you guys a look into our master bedroom and the most recent decor updates I have made. Our room always gets the shaft when it comes to decorating. Usually it just houses all of the random decor that I have removed from other rooms and can’t commit to throwing away, so it just ends up in our room looking like a hodge podge, and I just can’t do that. So, I went on a little shopping spree and invested some time, money, and energy into making our bedroom a pretty space that we actually want to be in! I had the large items already, our bed, dresser, and nightstands. But the rest of the room was lacking in some simple, yet statement making decor. I wanted to mix my styles and make it feel both warm and luxe at the same time. How do you do that? Well, I’m not saying I know everything, but how I personally achieved that look was by mixing textures and patterns. I used a heavy velvet curtain and a brushed gold chandelier (the more luxe items) and mixed them with a more traditional style rug and a linen bedding set. AND, i threw in some fur, velvet, and linen pillows to blend the modern and warm style I was trying to achieve. Here is a closer look at the decor
Another way to add warmth to a more modern space is by mixing in some vases with stems. I have a vase with olive stems on our nightstands, and a vase on our dresser with some eucalyptus. Yall, call me crazy, but i just don’t think there is a right and wrong way to design. I think it’s fun to mix styles and textures and taste and figure out how to make it all work. Because the truth is, I love so many different types of design, and i feel like there are so many ways to incorporate all of your favorite styles in one room without making it feel chaotic.
Anyways, I wanted to give you a breakdown of where a few of the items in our room are from. If you are looking for room darkening curtains like the ones i have, I did a lot of searching and made my final choice with the Ikea Sanela curtains. I am SO pleased with them. They look amazing, they are affordable, and they are total blackout curtains. Altogether, they are a huge win and a well worth it product. They come in a pair of 2, and i put two on each side of the window to give it a more grand look.

The Chandelier is also from Ikea. Yall, it was only $89, which is a total steal, and it is totally stunning in person! I am so so pleased with it. We used to have a ceiling fan there, but i desperately wanted a chandelier, so when I came across this one, I had to have it:) Here is the link to the light fixture
For the bedding, I will do a post on how I make our bed, because it is an intense process, but for now, I wanted to give you the links to our bedding. If you are looking for a neutral, linen style bedding, I absolutely love ours. It’s all from target, they have it in a few different colors ( we have the gray and the linen color up stairs in our guest room) and it is my favorite quilt/duvet I’ve ever had.
Last, but not least, our pillows. I am always on the hunt for good throw pillows. And if I’m being totally transparent here, styling pillows is SOOOOOOO hard for me! I am not good at it. Any pillow styling I do is inspired by Pinterest because it is just something I am not good at….yet!:) I searched Pinterest for days trying to find an inspiration pic on styling bed pillows. I finally found one I loved and then bought the size pillows I needed to make it happen! I did euro pillows in the back, a king size pillow in front, two standard size shams in front of the king pillows, and then finished off the look with two lumbar pillows in front. And I am totally satisfied with the final look. Thank God, because i went through several different pillows and arrangements to find this one! This is my first pillow success story and I’m sticking to it:) Here are the links
