House Tour: Bedroom

Today I’m closing out the house tour with my little bedroom. It’s chock-full of a bed that’s too big for the space, a dresser that’s been gnawed on by my dog, too much art, and a dog crate that’s kind of an eyesore but Finn likes it, so it stays. Hope you enjoy 🙂

This is what the room looks like from the door. There’s one decent sized window that I accentuate with some big curtains that I purchased years ago from Ikea. I love their sheer, breezy effect and the geometric pattern. I’ve never been one that needed blackout curtains- there is something nice to me about the sun spilling into your room in the morning. The bed is a sleigh bed, which I really don’t need. I could probably save about 6 inches if I switched to a flat headboard and no footboard, but I really like the lines of the sleigh bed and it cost me $Free.99, so it’s tough to part with.

There’s kind of an orange/blue thing happening, which isn’t shocking because that’s one of my favorite color combinations. The color inspiration started with the duvet cover, which was an incredible Pottery Barn sale find. The Euro shams came along a few years later- a lucky find from West Elm that just happen to match the color of the duvet. The blue patterned throw pillow is from HomeGoods, the sequined pillow is from the West Elm outlet, and the handpainted nightstand is from El Paso Import Co. in Dallas.

Side note: I make my bed almost every morning. If I don’t make my bed in the morning, I make it as soon as I get home from work.  This is one of my most annoying compulsions. My sister would disagree and tell you that my hair-twiddling is my most annoying compulsion. In response to this, I would continue to twiddle my hair while glaring at her. (We love each other, I promise.)

The gallery wall came together with some pieces that I’ve collected over the years that include the blue/orange color combo. The Texas print is from We are 1976 in Dallas, the Museum of Contemporary Art LA print is a lucky hand-me-down from my stepdad, the black and white botanical screenprints are from Target, the the totem pole (made out of cartoon animals, though it’s hard to see in this pic), is also from We are 1976.

This is the view looking back at the doorway. The dresser, now accented with Finn’s signature chew-marks, is also from El Paso Import Co. The Peter Pan print is a souvenir from my family’s beach trip to Seaside, Florida last summer, and was purchased from Central Square Records. If you ever find yourself in Seaside- please visit this store. I never wanted to leave! The dog crate really is not my favorite thing to look at, but Finn likes to hang out in there while I’m folding laundry, getting dressed, or taking bad iPhone pictures of my room for the blog (you can see a bit of him in this photo.)

Here’s some little thingies hanging around my room. From left to right- some family pics, a lamp from Ikea’s clearance section, my framed graduation announcement (so much cuter than a diploma…), one of my grandpa’s old cigar boxes filled with my grandmother’s handkerchiefs, and some dried roses that Matt gave me for our anniversary. In the middle- my precious tiny clogs, a souvenir from Matt’s trip to Amsterdam last year. On the right- my nightstand with a yummy ginger candle, my bracelets/rings, and a glass-blown heart from my mom and stepdad’s rehearsal dinner (their rehearsal dinner was in a glass-blowing studio.)

So that’s my room! It’s not exactly the serene, tranquil oasis that many people achieve with their bedrooms, but it is filled with things that I love, which is why I like it. Thank you for joining me on this house tour!

    Im sad to see the end of the apt pics, but your place looks amazing! I’ll have to have you help me with my place (when i finally move lol). I have a lot of Southwestern furniture and things from my time in Albuquerque, and I know you could help me make it work! I’d pay you of course and we can twiddle our hair together 🙂
