I’ve lived in my current apartment for 2 years now and have focused zero of my decorating attention on the bedroom.  I’ve kept it very simple with just a plain wood bedframe, nondescript nightstands, and a credenza-shaped dresser.  That’s it.  I don’t know why I haven’t brought a little life into it before now, but it REALLY needs to be jazzed up.  It needs SOMETHING, ya know?

So my next project is for sure a bedroom update.  Here’s what I plan to add:

01| these mid-century modern-style nightstands from west elm.

02 | a leather butterfly chair and since we can’t quite afford the real version, this urban outfitters one will do just fine.

03 | i scored this Pennyweight x Oh Deer print a few months ago and it’s one of my favorites. it’s rolled up in a tube now but i think it will be a perfect addition to the bedroom.

04 | a few faux sheepskins around the room would add just the right amount of texture.

05 | two swinging lamps that would look great on either side of the bed above the nightstands.

06 | one colorful pillow on the bed (my linens are all white, by the way) would add a nice pop amongst the otherwise neutral tones of the room.

07 | a shaggy rug to make it extra cozy and homey.
