Home Sweet Home 🙂
Hello friends. A special post coming at you today featuring a few changes made to my bedroom to freshen up the vibes for spring (and my last few months in this apartment . . . I’m currently home hunting in a new neighborhood in Brooklyn). I was feeling in a bit of a rut with the old formation of my furniture. I basically swapped the placement of my dresser and bed. It’s a bit funky with my bed right up against the second entrance to my apartment, but I never used that door ever anyways, so it doesn’t matter. It’s only temporary anyways. This slight change was just what I needed to be inspired again by my living space. Feeling creative in my bedroom is super important since I spend so much time in this room. I sleep here, and I do work from my desk by the window. When I look around, I like to feel enlightened and happy. And now with my bed facing the window, I wake up to lots of light. It’s an energetic kick starter to my day.
Now . . . onto my brand spanking new mattress by HELIX. I’ve been sleeping on it for about a month now, and it has been life changing. It was made to be suited just for me. The process that HELIX gives is customers is a personalized shopping experience. Just answer some questions in their sleep quiz about your sleeping preferences, body type and sleeping style, and they will customize the best mattress option for you. If you want, you can split the bed in two, so that each side is individually customized for you and your partner 🙂 How rad is that?! Now everyone can sleep happy. haha. My mattress is perfectly medium firm, exactly the way I like it, and I’ve been sleeping like a baby ever since. No going back after this one, that’s for sure. Thanks, HELIX.
Now, onto the bed dressings! Out with the old, in with the new! I got a new comforter by Laura Ashley. It’s one of the best comforters I’ve had in a while. Keeps me warm when its cold, and cool when it’s too hot! It’s a keeper. And the quality is excellent, which is so important. I don’t know about you, but I like my comforter filled with real down feathers. The weight and feel makes all the difference.
The Bed Sheets
And it’s a known fact that nothing feels better than a new set of sheets and comforter cover. My bed sheets, comforter cover, pillow cases and grey throw blanket are all by Snowe Home. I first discovered this brand at a press dinner late last year. I love the minimalism of their designs. I wanted to keep my bed all white, sharp and crisp, so I could add accents wherever I wanted here and there. This sheet set is the best. And it feels good against my skin. My mom gave me these real fur accent pillows. The tone of grey-ish blue, verging on turquoise, is so beautiful! I couldn’t resist throwing these on top of all the white.
Speaking of accents . . . say hello to my new vintage-inspired rug from Rugs-USA.com. This one specifically is the Silky Road Antique Brick Medallion AS19 Rug in blush. This was actually exactly what my room needed. It makes me room look even bigger in a way. For some reason, the placement of my bed needed a sort of frame to make it pop. This rug was just the thing to do that. It’s soft tones of pink, white and orange are a melody of sunset goodness all together. Love how my furry pillows complement the tones of pink on my rug, as well. The combination was unexpectedly perfect. When I move, I’m definitely going to pick up another rug from Rugs-USA.com for the living room!
The Wall Hanging
I moved a framed print I have to the wall at the foot of my bed, alongside my vintage guitar that is in need of desperate tuning. That I will get done soon, I promise. haha. Oh, and hanging on the handle of the door is a cute little woven baby cactus wall hanging from The Little Avocado. It fits right in with my bedside table full of candles and my plant that is still alive and kicking (thankfully).
Well, that’s it for now. A few minor changes, and my living space feels refreshed again. It makes me the happiest to light my candles at the end of the day, hiding underneath the covers. Then feeling my rug beneath my feet first thing in the morning. Right before the first sip of matcha tea. Life is feeling good right now 🙂
