Robert and I have lived in our apartment for almost two years now, and a lot has happened in that time. It’s our first home, and always will be, but it’s time for us to move on. Mainly because I need a washer and dryer.
We don’t live in a bad area, but we don’t live in a nice apartment. We live near the train tracks, our pipes are so loud they wake us up in the middle of the night, and a little balcony for our baby girl would be nice. So, we’ve officially begun the search for a new home.
We’re looking for another two bedroom, since it’s pretty silly for a student and business owner to live in a one bedroom. Gas stove would be nice, and something in a better neighborhood. We’ve narrowed down our choices, and now we’re just waiting for something to open up.
Until something does become available, however, you best believe that I will be decorating our new space in my mind. Because while I love my home now, there’s so much more I want to do.
So, let’s start with the bedroom.
While I do love color in my home, I also love the tranquility that comes with soft colors in the bedroom. This picture above is perfect for what I’m looking for.
I love white furniture, and lucky us, we already have a white bed. But I still love the matching bed and dresser from Ethan Allen that I’ve chosen above. There’s something so sophisticated and non-fussy about white furniture. It’s easy to decorate with, and neutral enough that you won’t get tired of it easily.
Another great thing about white furniture: you can pair it with almost any other color! Which is why I love the blue Cindy Crawford nightstand to go next to the bed. It adds a soft touch of color, without being too overwhelming or matchy-matchy. And to go on top? A glass lamp, of course. I know that the clear lamps are a bit trendy these days, but I just love the style. I think they really are classic and beautiful.
Do you decorate a space before you get there, like I do? Or do you like to move in first?
And what’s your bedroom style?
