For an Update: Master Bedroom

 

     Hi there! I'm sharing a little update on how our Master Bedroom is coming along with some iPhone photos today. This is one of my favorite rooms so far, I think because it's so personal. My half of the room has some of my favorite possessions, and the same goes for Brett on his side of the room. When we first moved in together, we decided that having our own sides would be best because our interests and ideas can be pretty different sometimes. That, and I have siblings, so I realized early on in life that having my own space was important, even if it is just half a room. Above, is our little sweetie playing on our bed. It's one of her favorite places to be, mostly just because she likes to throw all of the pillows off and sit in the middle like she conquered it.

     This is part of my little corner, where I store my records and whatnot. I also like to display my favorite shoes of the moment next to my records. It just makes me happy to look at them!

     My nightstand, shown above, probably seems crowded to some. For me though, it's carefully curated and perfect. On it, I keep my record player from my parents (thanks guys!) next to my records, ready to be spun at any moment. I've gotten into the habit of playing one whenever I fold and put away laundry in our room. It makes the task less daunting and more enjoyable. I also keep sentimental things, like a polaroid of my parents, a crystal I brought back from home, a box my sister painted for me, and a book of poetry from Brett's sister, Kristen.

       This is what my half of our dresser looks like. I get ready in the mornings here, and so I keep all of the essentials for that at my fingertips. I also keep my incense here, out of Bailey's reach still, and a couple of cute decorations. The small metal bear and bull are representative of the stock market (my dads field of work), and were in his office for my entire life. They were the pawns from a tic tac toe set that my sisters and I played with every time we visited.

     Thanks for reading, and have a great Wednesday!

For an Update: the Office

 

     Hi there! I just wanted to share a few iPhone photos of the little changes I've made to our office. Our office is really part greenhouse/part actual office. At the moment, half the room is full of plants that we are waiting on planters for to go outside, and the other half is desks, computers, and your usual office stuff. Above, is what's basically my desk (we have two), and I've decorated it to my liking, minus one of our huge herb gardens sitting on it. Once we move it, I can actually work at my desk again!

     These are a few of my little babies, which I've shared abundantly on my Instagram. You can't tell in this photo because it's from the top, but my cactus on the far left is growing huge arms! Yay!!!

     This is one of our beloved bookcases, and next to it is where I store all of my craft supplies and personal files. It's essentially the little hub of blogging things.

      Lastly, I'm still in love with this little hanging system. The clips are perfect for my little Idle Wild Co. prints. Thanks for reading!

Progress: Living Room

 

    Hey there! I wanted to share how our living room is coming along! Beware, these are all iphone photos, as I plan to have Kristen possibly come in and shoot it when it's all done. They aren't the best quality, but for an update, they'll do! Pictured above is part of our entryway. It's a small, but cute little area that my grandma's writing desk fits in perfectly. I've had this desk for as long as I can remember, and I plan to keep it forever.

     Details on my entryway desk: I keep a little print from Idlewild Co., a vintage copper piggy bank (copper 4evr), a catchall, and a very familiar DIY.

     My favorite little corner! It may not look like much in the photo, but in person it is so fun! It's right next to our bookcase, and the little hanging plants with the salt rock lamp and leaf painting are the perfect trio.

     Still loving my tray from this post! I keep the styling pretty sparse though, due to Bailey's penchant for throwing things, grabbing things, breaking things, etc.

     These pillows (along with a Falsa blanket I picked up at a random Kansas gas station LOL) make our basic brown "suede" couches look a bit more exciting. I made a second pillow to go along with the one from this post, and they make me smile every time I look at them.

     The coat rack is still holding up! We snagged an ottoman bench from Brett's parent's (thanks Ed and Susan!) and it really gives this area a more cohesive look. The only plans left for this room are possibly adding a mirror (I'm thinking gold and antique-y) to the space next to the coat rack above, and purchasing a coffee table now that Bailey might leave it (mostly) alone. Thanks for reading!
