My Bedroom Makeover

With a new year, new chapter and fresh attitude, what better place to start than a bedroom makeover!  My heart and my head are taking me from a darker palette filled with Asian antiques and toile patterns, to a light and airy space anchored in this soothing blush and taupe color scheme.

This mirrored console from ArHaus Furniture is the statement piece I can build the room around, and will also hold my TV and entertainment system. I see it styled with two fabulous lamps, my jewelry & perfume tray and fresh orchids.

Then I just discovered this pink chair from Pine Cone Hill that will be a perfect accent piece to tie the room together, and is functional too!

And because  all my design follows the rule of three, I’m combining these three bedding sets from Pottery Barn for one lux look that combines rich patterns, texture and soothing grey, taupe, blush and natural tones. Add the velvet, silk and linen duvets, coverlets and shams and it’s the ultimate mix of elegant and cozy. I’ll never want to get out of bed!

For the end of the bed, I love this tufted bench from Pottery Barn in grey linen with turned black legs. It not only completes the bed, but also gives me a place to toss my handbag and lay out the day’s wardrobe selection!

The next step will be the nightstands and lighting…any suggestions?!

I love a classic mirrored chest, but wonder if I’m over that look. This one from Horchow is gorgeous and would work nicely with my bedding, while providing a lot of great storage.

When it all comes together this bedroom makeover will have a bit of Hollywood glam mixed with modern elegance, for a cozy sanctuary and dreamy night’s sleep!

Chloe’s Bedroom Makeover

Now that Chloe is 8 years old and a foot taller than she was when we bought her last bed, I think it’s time to graduate to a big girl bed, and hopefully one she’ll have until she goes to college!

This Blythe Tufted frame with a canopy from Pottery Barn Kids I think is the perfect look and proportion for Chloe’s room with extra high ceilings and neutral toile wallpaper.

With the full size bed we’ll need to reconfigure the whole room, but will be a fun and exciting refresh to Chloe’s bedroom.

Then the next step will be finding the right bedding to work with the rest of the scheme…can’t wait!
