Welcome To Our Home: Bedroom Tour

Skunkboy Bedroom
If I had to pick a favorite room in our house, it would be our bedroom.  Obviously it pains me to play favorites, but this place has it goin' on.  Oh, wait... people probably don't say that anymore.  Well, whatever phrase you use to describe simple, functional, fun, and serene, that's what I'm trying to convey.

I'm in no way a minimalist, so setting up a space that felt easy to keep tidy was a bit challenging for me... especially without a closet.  Yep, this pretty room is lacking a closet to hold all of my vintage dresses and whatnot.  Like I've said before, most rooms come with their own unique bit of complications, so working around those is always the goal!

Remember my initial vanity post?  I was certain I wanted to paint the desk something other than black, so I originally went for a complimentary pink to our comforter.  It really wasn't what I was wanting.  Pink is great, but it felt like overkill.  I settled on a soft mint and I really think it fits the vibe of the room a lot better.  I love color and I need a variety in my home!  (Also, did you peep my curtain lengthening DIY?  Still going strong!)

If you've counted four doors in this room, you're totally right!  We have two entrances, a door that opens up into Hope's room, and we have the door to the attic.  Adding dressers was a great solution for this lovely room with no storage.  I found the dresser with the mismatched knobs on Amazon (I added the knobs myself) and the other dresser was this DIY fail from Craigslist.  As you can see, sanding it down really brought it back to life!  You can't win every DIY trophy, am I right?

Johnny and I were still rocking the same bedframe that we were gifted when we first got married, so this bed from West Elm was my splurge for us.  I think it's gorgeous and classic, and I hope we use it for a really long time!

The teal ceiling was here when we moved in.  It's a lot greener than something I would normally go for, but it actually helped me step out of my "typical decor" box and really consider what I was putting into our space.  The same with the light fixture-- at first I thought it wasn't really "me" but then I figured out how to compliment it with surrounding decor, and now I feel like it fits the room perfectly!

Thank you guys for taking a peek into my bedroom!  It's a lot different than our last bedroom space, and I love both for different reasons.  (This one more, though.  So much more manageable than sharing a work space with the place you're supposed to relax.)  I'll share a list of where I found some of the items shown.  If I miss anything, feel free to ask and I'll do my best to look it up!  xo.

  8. It was funny but your room was on my computer after picking up my daughter from school (she's Hope's age) and she walked in and starting reading it and commenting. We both thought it was really pretty and she said she like your quirkiness. Her words ☺

  9. I really like your unique style. It's so "not today but still working". And I honestly LOVE that you dare to make the photos REAL. You know, it looks like a bedroom where someone actually lives, full of personal touches, AND stylish at the same time. Thanks for sharing it with us :)
