I’ve been in nesting mode lately (perhaps it’s the idea that we’re going to get to register now that we’re engaged), so I’ve been thinking of new ways to freshen up our space, starting with our bedroom.
I haven’t decided which direction I want to go in, but our current direction (bachelor pad bedroom furniture from Andy’s single days mixed with slight feminine touches from my single days), which is the opposite of chic. I haven’t even begun narrowing down my bedroom makeover ideas to a single aesthetic, but even those these rooms are all over the place in terms of style, I think it helps to gather all the stuff you’re loving in one place to identify the common attributes they all share as a first step toward honing your style. Some common denominators I’ve found so far: soft headboards, mirrors, blue and white, neutral backdrops with a mix of prints, neutral rugs, monograms, pops of pink and feminine touches, white sheets with color-coordinated borders (typically blue), ikat, diamond cross prints, stripes, florals.
What are the common denominators in the bedrooms you love?
Books, sea-foam, and preppy-feminine print
White with pops of prints
Doesn’t this remind you of Carrie’s bedroom from SATC?
