Hey guys! So, I’m pretty sure the actual words of this post are going to be pretty lame. I’m a great procrastinator and one too many social media feeds informed me that Gilmore Girls is on Netflix now. Gotta pick your battles I suppose. However, our master bedroom is finished and I’m excited to share it!
My design direction has completely changed over the past few years. I’m in the process of scaling back our things and the Fall in Love Room Challenge was such a great opportunity and motivator to do so.
We’ve accumulated way too many things over the past 8 or so years and it was getting kind of ridiculous. We were surrounded by things that had no meaning to us and weren’t beautiful.
I don’t feel like I can say that now. It’s minimal, that’s for sure, but everything about it feels right. Over time I would like to add a few more pieces, maybe a proper bed or at least a headboard. I’m also thinking about swapping out our night stands.
Another pretty awesome thing about this new set up, less to clean and easier to clean! I can dust and run the vacuum in less than 10 minutes. That has never happened and it just means more time for things I actually enjoy!
I’m also pretty happy about all of the white. It’s so refreshing compared to what we had before. We have pretty low ceilings on the second floor and I really think that getting rid of the visual breakup that carpet/wall color/ceiling color can have was huge for us. The room feels seamless now with the wall color and ceiling color being the same.
And Zeke seems to be okay with it all too, just as long as he has his toys.
So there you have it! My poorly narrated version of our bedroom changes. Like I said…Gilmore Girls.
Now is the time for me to tell you to go check out rooms of some awesome ladies! I really don’t know what I would have done without this Challenge. I’ve been putting this off for too long and their support and having an actual deadline was exactly what I needed!
