Weekend Recap & Bedroom Blues

This weekend, Dean and I decided that it was time for us to give our bedroom a face-lift  Since we live in an apartment and painting is out of the question, we just did a good old fashioned reno with the things that we had. A little info on our room- it’s really too big for our leftover college furniture. We ended up moving around our bed and dresser and pulling in an old desk to try and make the room look more homey.

There are definitely more items in here… but nothing seems to go together. It’s not the worst, definitely not the best, but we’re broke so it will have to do. If I was rich (or a real adult), I imagine I would have one of those soft, comfy rooms you see all over Pinterest. Here’s a bunch of my favorite bedroom pins.

I’ve been staring at this duvet for the last year or so, but I just can’t seem to pull the trigger. I actually had a shot to buy it on an awesome sale at a West Elm outlet on Long Island, but I ended up walking out empty handed. All in all I do really like the duvet, but I think it’s the beautiful wood bed frame and night table that I’m really in love with.

I really love this whole house designed by Jenny Wolf. This room is a wonderful way to show off the fact that blue and red don’t have to equal “Amurrica” or 4th of July. And lets talk about how the chosen patterns gives the room depth without clashing. Why can’t I do that with my mix-matched furniture? In love.

I have this silly life goal of having awesome french doors in my bedroom. I’m a huge lover of natural light and I also happen to have a giant crush on the way french doors look. So if I could use french doors to give me natural light in my bedroom, I think I’d be set for life. Plus-could you imagine having a cute little iron table and chair set right outside of your bedroom? All I’d need is a coffee maker on my nightstand and I’d feel like I was permanently placed in my favorite bed and breakfast.

I love the color scheme of this room. I love the couch and pillow choices at the foot of the bed. The cutesy pillowcases, the white accent pieces, the beautiful blue quilt – I love it all. Well..I don’t love what looks like wood paneling wallpaper, but everything else is gold.

I’m not a big purple person, but for some reason the purple touches are my favorite part of this room. The contrasting purple and gold are perfectly done!

Do you or do you not want to lay in this bed forever? I love this textured duvet from Pottery Barn. I love the giant windows. I love the mix of the rustic wood and the metallic touches.

I love this one because the blue and yellow is a color scheme that I think I could get Dean on board with. He tends to tell me that my bedroom choices are a bit to feminine for him. Although this one is definitely still bright and soft with tons of feminine features, I think the color choices and art possibilities could make it agreeable.

I’m unsure of the original source on this one, but it’s one of my favorites. The color choices make me so happy – but Dean wouldn’t have it. I already have some grey and beige items…You think I could start sneaking in various teal and pink accents?

I have many more bedrooms pinned on my Pinterest, so if you’re interested in seeing more of my home inspirations you can find me there!

Which one of these is your favorite?
What are your dream bedrooms like?
Do normal bedrooms in real people homes actually match?

  1. Girlfriend, you have the same tastes I do! However, my matching bedroom furniture is completely boring, one of my home goals is to MIS-MATCH it. I think any of these rooms would be doable with maybe $3-500 and a little time. Anyone got $500 I could borrow? 😉 Beautiful picks, Jenn!

  2. i’ve been pinning so many cozy bedrooms too! i’m getting sick of my apartment (been there three years now) and i’m so ready to start over somewhere new. i love these luxurious comforters and all the various light sources!
    ps. thanks for adding your thoughts on my girls recap! i’m hoping more people will follow suit and we can all talk about it together. (or maybe we’re the only ones obsessed with the show and we’ll just talk to each other!)

    • I feel you. Even though packing may me one of my least favorite things in the world, the excitement of unpacking or re-doing is totally worth it!

      and don’t mention it. I’ve been DYING to talk girls with someone! I don’t think Dean cares about it the way I do haha

  3. All of these rooms are simply gorgeous and I would be more than happy to fall asleep in any one of them! I really love the cream and mint room with the knotty pine walls, it looks so relaxing!
