Strange I haven't posted about it much because it's actually one of my favorite spaces.
It just makes me feel good.
When we moved in to our new house about a year ago, we kept all the same bedroom furniture, decor, bedding, etc. I LOVE a comfortable white bedroom (with some contrast, of course). To me, it just feels more comfortable and calming, and I like the versatility. I hate limiting or defining a room with expensive items you can't easily change.
For example, bedding or a wall color. I like to splurge on nicer bedding (you use it everyday) in a neutral, so I can change up the whole feel of the room whenever I like with some pillows or a throw in a fun pattern or color. So I like to have one good bedding set that I like, rather than spending a fortune on a lot of colorful or patterned bedding to change out all the time. Same thoughts with a wall color-- If the room was blue, what would happen when I wanted to go a different route with accessories? It can just be limiting in a larger space with a lot of accessories.
So for our bedroom I like light, bright, and a bit glam. I love how easily the whole feel of the room can change with the swap of some easy accessories.
Propping some large mirrors up on the side tables is one of my favorite tricks to make a room look a bit larger and add some sparkle. These are the same ones we had for years at our last house (set up the exact same way) and they worked out perfectly here as well since there are no windows on that back wall behind the bed.
The space itself is a lot larger than the bedroom at our last house, but it's layout is exactly the same. Same window wall, same spot where the bathroom doorway and main doorways are. So setting it up was a no-brainer.
I WISH I would've grabbed some before shots months ago, but this wall below was completely a mess the first 8 months or so that we had lived here.
Imagine it with no chairs, the same dresser, and a large, tall, chest of drawers over near the corner. We had the tv on top of the taller chest.
Gotta love the Beverly Hills Housewives. ;)
It felt like SO much furniture. So we moved the tall chest into the back of Brad's closet since it's plenty big enough, and the chest is full of Brad's stuff anyway. So it being in his closet makes sense and freed up a ton of space in here.
Turns out we love the tv on the dresser so much better. Before the bedroom-tv-police cite me, we're bedroom tv people and we love it. We don't sleep with it on or anything, but to me, there's nothing better than relaxing in bed with a movie every now and then. I've never understood the bedroom tv hate. I mean, you can turn it off whenever you want. It doesn't control itself...haha.
Like I always say, you should make your space into what feels good for you. That's the fun of decorating!
Another big change is the addition of these two chairs...
I love to have at least one area to sit in a bedroom that isn't the bed. I got these chairs from Target last year to go in our family room. I didn't 'really love the color in there, so we moved them up here and they work perfectly. *They still have them and they're actually on sale now!
Here's a shot from the other direction...
We thought of adding a fun chandelier since the ceiling in here is so beautiful, but I don't think we could live without a ceiling fan in here. Granted, it is a boob ceiling fan, so I may have to re-work that somehow in the future. ;)
Not such a big deal because we added the pretty chandelier in the bathroom which is closeby.

Between the windows I recently added my preserved wedding bouquet. I posted a photo of it a while back and got a ton of questions about it- Basically it's freeze-dried. There are a ton of places that preserve bouquets like this. You just get the flowers to them within a few days of the wedding and you'll have them to keep forever.
The little mirrors came in a set of three from Target.
As for the pillows...
The green ones are the same custom ones that I had specially made from fabric I chose. Same idea with the spotted one in the middle (it's from Etsy). You may remember them from this recent post. I've moved them around a million times since I got them (they look good everywhere), but I especially love the print mixed with the leafy green in the other pillows.
The little round black and white bolster is from Target (it's over 5 years old).
So that's it for this space for now! Just wanted to share a bit of the changes we had made in here that made such a huge difference and show you what I've done with this space so far! What are your favorite stores to find unique pillows??
