The past 8 weeks have resulted in a total transformation of our master bedroom. We brightened the walls from a dark blue to a clean, vibrant white. We upgraded our mattress to a Simmons Beautyrest Black Sidney and the decor got a total face-lift. See below for all the details.
MATTRESS: Thanks to Simmons Beautyrest for giving us the opportunity to review their new Beautyrest Black Collection! We went with the Sidney and the past 4 weeks have been full of some amazing sleep. I’ve noticed that both of us fall asleep quickly and barely move during the night—a sign that we’re comfortable and staying comfortable for 7-8 hours. My Fitbit (which tracks my sleep habits) also shows that my sleep has been much more consistent since the arrival of our Sidney. The Micro Diamond Infused Aircool Memory Foam has been my favorite feature—-the conductive properties of the diamonds helps move body heat away from you throughout the night to help you maintain a constant sleeping temperature. We love it and are looking forward to many more nights of peaceful sleep! (Walter is also a pretty big fan of the new mattress, here’s a video to prove it.)
BEDDING + ART: For bedding we looked to West Elm. We selected West Elm’s Stamped Duvet ($119.oo) paired with the Standard Down Alternative Insert ($179.00) along with these colorful Striped Celery Root ($49) sheets. For pillows we kept it simple with 3 West Elm Euro Pillows ($49.00 each) and the coordinating Stamped Euro Covers ($29.00 each). We wanted to integrate our anniversary tradition of visiting islands in the Great Lakes into our bedroom decor, so I decided to focus the room’s artwork on the Great Lakes. I found inspiration in this layered idea from Jacquelyn Clark (definitely check out her blog) and designed the prints in Photoshop using images from our trips, a transparent green stripe and circular cropping and was able to have oversized prints made at Office Max on the cheap. They are framed in these large IKEA Ribba frames ($17.99). I think Jacquelyn used the frames without the mats, in order to have a larger image, but I opted to include the mats. In the lower right corner of each stripe I also identified the lake. At the end of the day the 5 pieces of custom art cost us less than $100. Sentimental and thrifty.
FURNITURE: We got our bedroom set last year. It’s all hand-made Amish furniture available through Erik Organic. It was made in Minnesota and delivered right to our doorstep. We have a king-size platform Seville frame (+ coordinating nightstands, dresser & free-standing mirror). It’s beautiful stuff. The vintage green chair belonged to my grandma and I feel incredibly lucky to have been gifted it.
PLANTS: I really wanted to brighten the room up with white walls, but also wanted to add elements of nature through the lake art and plants. I’m absolutely in love with these air plants that I ordered through Nia Craft on Etsy. For $36.50 you receive 3 barnwood + brass hangers along with 3 air plants. They’re easy to care for and I love the way they look on the wall. Hoping to grab more green goodies from this shop soon, so many fun options! We also grabbed this Trio of (fake) Succulents ($44.99) from Target to add more green to the room. So, there you have it: our bedroom makeover and all the details!
If you’re ever in the neighborhood be sure to stop by for a quick nap on our new bed….because seriously that Beautyrest Black Sidney….so good.
