Bedoom Redo Reveal


After sharing my vision for my bedroom redo in December, I'm excited to finally be sharing updated pictures! It's been a bit of a drawn-out process since I wanted to make sure I was only buying pieces I really loved and since I spent the majority of those months in school. I'm still putting a few finishing touches on the place, but I wanted to get this posted before I leave for school (this Saturday!) so this is as good as it's going to get.

Also, I apologize for how dark these pictures are. My room is incredibly dim, even with LED lights, and the camera's flash was broken. At least I tried!

I removed my headboard from my room since it was upholstered in blue velvet. Instead, I moved my bed beneath the windows in order to create the illusion of a headboard. And I placed a trunk at the end of my bed for storing my excessive amount of blankets.

As always, I began with the bed. I'm partial to white bedding, but added interest with different materials and textures. I love how the velvet pillows (my most recent addition) add just enough color to make it not boring, while still keeping with a calming color palette.

I finally dismantled my rainbow bookshelves (like this) in order to create a less cluttered look. I only kept my favorite books and scattered frames, canvases, and decorative objects throughout. I even fit a lamp on the bottom shelf, which has proven perfect for reading before bed.

This desk was my spring break project. It was originally silver (see the picture below), but I decided to give it a new life with gold paint. The mother of pearl knob was the perfect touch to tie the look together. I loved it so much that I replaced the knobs on my dresser and built-in cabinets with it too!

The throwback photos on my bulletin board show just how long ago this picture was taken!

The chinoiserie fabric that my mom and I had once recovered the stool in didn't match my room anymore, so we picked out a white faux fur for a fun change. To "reupholster" it, we simply covered the chair in the fabric and secured it with nailheads underneath.

Before even making a plan to redo my room, I knew I wanted to have some prints from Rifle Paper Co.'s Bon Voyage collection on my wall. As a girl who loves to travel, I'm inspired by having foreign places decorate my room. I also jump at any chance to support Rifle, both because it is a local business and its products are beautiful. I found these prints at the Summer Sidewalk Sale; for a more affordable gallery wall, you can purchase one of their wall calendars (this is the 2019 version) and frame the prints inside--plus you'll have 12 to choose from!

We (ok, my mom) also repainted my dresser. It used to be a light blue, which once worked in my room, but would be much too bright now. She ended up just using the same paint that is on my walls since we had plenty of extra. We intended to paint the walls another color, but were surprised that we liked the monochromatic look!

I fixed up this shadow box with one of Rifle's wrapping sheets. If you want to see how I did it, you can find the steps on my Instagram story highlight called "DIY."

I created a little drop zone by the door for easy access on my way out. I store my on-the-go essentials, such as gum, chapstick, keys, and wallet, in the straw bag.

My entire capsule wardrobe fits on this (inexpensive) clothing rack. It's so easy having only a few choices every time I get dressed! I'm planning on posting an update on how my capsule living is going at the end of the season.

And of course I have to represent my second home!

My room tour wouldn't be complete without a picture of Murphy, who shares it with me!

What do you think of my new room?
