Elsie’s Main Bedroom Tour

I am so, so excited to share our completed main bedroom with you today. This room came together surprisingly easy. If you’ve been reading a while, you know I am a fan of keeping the bedroom space simple, clean and serene. I don’t want anything loud in my space and I don’t want anything extra to clean or worry about besides the usual daily life stuff like laundry. I realized in our previous home that keeping our bedroom super neutral is something I really love. That said, I did a few new things in this space—like an illustrated wallpaper. I am so, so excited to share the full tour with you today!

This post is sponsored by Blinds.com. This was my first experience with their affordable, custom made blinds—and wow, I am hooked! I use two pull down shades for our smaller windows and a motorized control for the extra large picture window. Here’s a link to the Premium Blackout Roller Shades in Interlude Birch I used for all my windows. What I love about them is A. You can’t even tell they are there when they are pulled up and B. They really block out most of the light, even in full daylight when they are down. We used them in our children’s rooms as well, and they are perfect!

Do you want to see how dark it gets??? My photographer, Amber, took this photo to look exactly how it looks in real life (in the middle of the day—full sun, by the way).

WOOO! My husband is a light sleeper so these blinds are a game-changer. We’re so excited! And with such a big window, the motorized control option made a ton of sense! You can even connect it to your Google Home and set it to open up at a certain time each morning (our children are our alarm clock, so unfortunately there is no sleeping in in our home at the moment).

I think what I love most about the blinds is that you really don’t even notice they are there when they are rolled up. Do you even see them in this photo??? Pretty amazing!

One last thing I wanted to mention about Blinds.com is that their support in helping me measure for my custom blinds was incredible. And if you make a mistake, they will remake your blinds for you without any additional costs, which is such a lifesaver!

OK! So let’s chat bedroom stuff. We brought our Serena & Lily bed frame with us along with these two side tables from Wayfair. The print is from our ABM print shop, which is launching soon. The wicker sconces are from Serena & Lily. The two small textured pillows are from Target.

The light is from Lucent Lightshop. They are able to do custom requests sometimes, and for our bedroom they made us a small version of this flush mount, with eight lights instead of 12. We have a good-sized bedroom, but with eight-foot ceilings, I didn’t want to get too large with the fixture. This is perfect! Lucent is one of my number one favorite small businesses, so if you haven’t yet explored their handmade lights, take a look here. When we sold our previous home, the buyers purchased our dresser, so we ordered a new set right away. I am really into these pieces and can see us using them literally for the rest of our lives, which feels really good! We lived in boxes for about two months before they arrived, so it was one of the happiest treats to finally put all our clothing away … haha! The hardware is a combination of silver and gold, which I really like. While we’re on the topic of Anthropologie, I stayed true to my pom pom curtains … I just cannot switch away. I had even ordered some colorful velvet curtains for this room, but ended up returning them and going back to my tried and true.

Let’s talk about the wallpaper! It’s from Hygge & West, one of our favorite wallpaper spots. It’s the Storyline pattern in the color white). It’s got a very big repeat with a ton of little details that are so funny. I always wanted a swan wallpaper, so it has that but also butterflies, bunnies, florals and more. I really love it! It gives the room a cozy feel, while still staying neutral and bright.

The rug is soo pretty—even more beautiful in person, if that is possible. It’s the arches rug designed by Sarah Sherman Samuel for Lulu + Georgia. It’s the perfect addition of texture! I’m obsessed.

I’ve had my eye on this mirror for what seems like forever and finally snagged it on sale. It is mounted to our wall, so it’s safe for little people (and me too—lol). It’s bigger than it looks in photos.

I also incorporated this wicker cabinet for a bit of extra storage (it’s currently sold out, but you can sign up for restock updates if you’re interested). I really love it and can see it being used in so many different ways through the years.

WOOO! Well that’s it for today! I hope you enjoyed this tour. I have a lot more coming up since pretty much ALL I did during quarantine (besides hang out with two tiny humans) was decorate. I am having SO MUCH FUN working on home projects 24/7. More to come soon! xx- Elsie

P.S. My dress is sold out, but you can find my headband on Etsy.

WAIT WAIT WAIT … Am I forgetting something important?

Here are a few before and after images of the room!

As you can see here, replacing the plantation shutters with modern blinds and curtains makes such a big difference. We also refinished our wood floors to be a light whitewash. We never use a fan in our bedroom, so I replaced it with a beautiful light that makes the whole space feel complete.

From the other side of the room you can see what a difference the wallpaper made. It’s so much brighter now!

Thanks so much for your support and for following our renovations. I’d love to hear what your favorite part of the room is! xx- Elsie
