For those who are aware of our main bedroom makeover that I did for the spring 2019 ORC, this post may be confusing. Why a refresh so soon?! Because I can’t ever let things just be, of course? Let me provide some context.
When I made over our main bedroom, a new mattress just wasn’t a part of the plan. So for the time being, I purchased a queen headboard with the idea that we would eventually upgrade to a king mattress, sell that pretty headboard on Facebook Marketplace, and would then get a new, king size headboard.
We finally got a new Lull king size mattress a few weeks go – which is so comfortable and has proven to be perfect for us as stomach and back sleepers (and has cooling effect which was a MUST have for me). Cue…the Serena and Lily Balboa headboard. I’ve been eyeing this headboard for a while and I felt it would be the perfect one for our bedroom. The traditional lines of the molding paired with the casual, natural woven texture of the cane creates a more relaxed and casual vibe for our room.
Enough of my word vom. I know you’re only here for the photos
My focus for this refresh was to:
1. Fight my impulse to paint the room, which is way harder than it sounds
2. Really create a bedding situation that felt like we were sleeping in a 5-start hotel without actually knowing what it was like to ever sleep in a 5-start hotel LOL.
That meant new linen bedding and sleeping pillows in addition to the new mattress. After receiving many pillow recommendations via IG, I purchased Brooke Linen mid-plush down pillows while they were on sale and I’ve been loving mine. Angelo said mid-plush was not firm enough for him (he’s a stomach sleeper) so I’ll probably be exchanging his pillow for a firmer one.
These new sage Sister Parish Dolly pillows fed my desire for a classic floral-y pattern in here. And the Cowtan and Tout Rajah lumbar from Stuck on Hue (her pillows are to die for) fed my desire for a pop of animal print! This combo is unexpected but I think it works.
The cat seems to be pleased with the new pillow arrangement, which really is all that matters.
I had the idea to swap out the chartreuse curtains with these custom drapes that I found on FB MP a few months ago and I must say, they fit perfectly in here. Definitely need some ironing though.
