Bedroom Inspiration

    Since my spring cleaning binge last weekend, our place is feeling clutter-free and organized which slightly feels like a clean slate in the decorating department. Shocking, I know. I took down a lot of our framed prints because as we collected pieces I would just add them in, but decided I want to swap out some art and be a little more thoughtful on placement going forward. I also have kind of gone overboard with nails in the wall, so painting is in order.

    I’ve been wanting to take on new wall colors in a couple of our rooms for a long time now. I love the gray (they were like this when we moved in), but prior to this apartment, I had actually painted my own walls (three apts in a row) a very similar shade, so I’m just needing some change. I’m going to be painting our dining room a classic white soon, but am also thinking of changing up the walls in our bedroom.

    Ideally, I would love to paint the walls white and have a black accent wall behind the bed, but that’s going to take convincing! Why are men so resistant to black walls! It makes a room look so sharp and in my opinion, adds a masculine touch (in a very elegant way). I had a black accent wall behind my old gray velvet headboard years ago, and I miss it. So will keep you posted on that one… but for now, I will continue to collect pretty images of black walls to email Matt.

    Inspiration for our bedroom…

    I love a classic white wall. It just gives off such a fresh, clean and zen vibe.

    We have a new headboard arriving in a few weeks and I am so excited! Since we upgraded to our king bed forever ago, we’ve needed one, so I’ve been keeping an eye out and finally found a piece I think will be just perfect. I went with an ivory linen tufted headboard with small side wings and we also ordered new white linen bedding (will be a first, but I discovered Cultiver and am so excited to change things up).

    I also have minimized our tabletop items on our nightstands. A lamp, a couple books, and a candle is all I really need. More updates coming soon! Here are a few items I’ve bought or am thinking of bringing home below and my entire apartment wish list here.

      So dreamy, love the natural lighting and all that open space!


      • I know, so dreamy, right? I think white will help achieve that look for our room. Details to come soon! x

    • Oh my goodness. I love all your inspo. Okay, I must (embarrassingly) admit, I tell my husband all the time that you and I would be best friends if we ever met in person because our style and things we love are so similar, especially interior decor. As we speak, I am watching painters paint my interior walls white. 🙂 AND we have a dark accent wall behind our bed. Maybe you can convince Matt of Urbane Bronzby Sherwin Williams. It’s such a pretty color. Not quite dark, but dark enough! Can’t wait to follow along with your changes!

      • Love it. 🙂 Thanks for the tip lady! I will check out those colors!

    • YES YES to the black accent wall. I hope you can convince him!
