Bedroom Update


We've been working on our bedroom over the last couple months, and it feels so good to finally give it some love! I have a tendency to put all my energy (and my cutest stuff) into the living room and dining room, since that's what people see when they first walk into our house. But the bedroom is where Ben and I start and end every day, so we finally decided that it was time to put some effort into it. And it’s really making a big difference! It’s so nice to wake up and get ready in a room that feels more put-together (you can see some "before” pictures in this post)

Bedroom // At Home in Love

The biggest change is, of course, the bed. It's a tufted upholstered bed from Target. We got the navy color when they did a big sale about a month ago, and I love it! It’s actually more of a deep royal blue than a true navy--which I was glad about.

Vanity area

The other main difference that we've made so far is to move my desk into the bedroom. I'm now using it as a vanity. To be honest, I hardly ever sat at it when it was a desk, anyways--I guess I'm more of a sit-on-the-couch kind of girl. So this works great. I also finally got a "big girl" mirror for above the vanity. The one I had before was a cheapo $5 floor mirror, so this one is a huuuuge improvement. It's from Decor Planet!

Bedroom with vanity as the nightstand

There are still several things on my list (a blanket for the bed, a rug, and a ghost chair for the vanity, to name a few) but at least we're getting closer. I would have loved to do a big makeover and reveal it all at once, but since our budget isn’t huge, we’ve just been chipping away here and there…so I’ll be sharing more bedroom photos again soon. Little by little!

What do you guys think so far? What room in your house are you working on? Do you like to do everything all at once and get it over with, or do you chip away at it month after month as well?

    your headboard is that navy color! And that mirror shape is beautiful! Too funny about the desk not working out as a desk! I recently got an "office space" worked out in our home and all I wanna do is sit there, haha! but so glad you found a wonderful use for the desk. ;-)

      That's so funny! I'm glad you love your office space. It's definitely better for your body to sit at a desk and work...I just always tend to multitask and watch a show at the same time, which I can't really do at a desk. That's so bad, I know.

    I love everything about this. The color of the headboard is perfect. Not too girly, but still fancy! I'm going to have to check out Modern Bath for mirrors. I'm on the hunt ;)

      Thanks, Jess! Good luck with the mirror hunt...I hope you find the perfect one :)

    Your bed looks great! I agree that it definitely looks much cuter in person than in the Target stock photo :)

    I also love your current rug and that adorable phone charger -- mind if I ask where you got them?

      Thanks! I'm so glad you agree. The rug is from Felt Ball Rug. You can see the post I wrote when I first got it here:

      The phone charger is by Jonathan Adler, and I got it from Lulu & Georgia (more on that in a future post!)

    Looks lovely! It's wonderful to have a pretty space to start and end your day. I especially love you don't have to sit on the floor to do your hair any more

      Haha, YES. That's the best part and the biggest improvement.
