One thing I’ve learned over the years is how important it is to have a personal sanctuary in your home. With the beautiful chaos of four energetic children, multiple jobs, persistent health issues, and a house that still doesn’t seem to clean itself, I have found a lot of peace taking alone time to meditate and recenter myself in a quiet place.
Our bedroom doubles as my work office as well, so separating and creating harmony within these spaces was important to me. I needed our room to be both a place of productivity and relaxation. I’m a neutral girl by heart, but have found that small doses of color make my home feel more zen.
You can see the “before” image of our primary bedroom below, and the lack of warmth and organization we were living in…
And here is what our room looks like currently:
Not every room makeover needs to be a grand or expensive overhaul–just by adding some color, reorganizing furniture, and decluttering your current space can make a huge difference in creating your personal sanctuary.
Green couch– The couch pictured above is sold out everywhere, but this Amazon dupe is also one we have in our home, and it’s been awesome.
Nightstands– They scored these on a huge discount from Shabundy’s (@shabundystaylorsville @shabundysprovo) but they are originally from Pottery Barn.
Home office– I also have my office setup in our room. These links went viral when I last shared them. It’s an aesthetically pleasing way to combine these spaces.
Large dresser– We got two of these Malm dressers from Ikea (in the white oak) and placed them side by side to look like one large piece. My brother-in-law added the black base at the bottom to give it some height.
Chandelier– I loved the simple elegance of this piece. It gives the perfect amount of light without being harsh.
Sherpa bench– One of my favorite additions to the room. so comfortable and versatile.
Bedside lamps– I replaced the wicker shades with a simple linen pair.
Drapes– They are fully-lined, and a stunning linen color and texture.
Curtain Rod– Super minimalist. We went with the black color.
Mirror– Finally a full-length mirror for this 6ft body to enjoy!
Rug– Olive and charcoal tones. We’ve had it for two years now and are still obsessed.
