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 in a quiet place. For the past several months it’s been the floor of my closet! Which, don’t get me wrong, has been great. But I felt the need to expand my sanctuary into Justin and I’s bedroom.
Having little energy and a busy schedule warranted hiring out for help. Luckily, some of my closest friends recently started doing design and renovation projects together (@thatswhatshebuilt)! I can’t recommend them enough. I told them my vision, they added their genius input and aesthetic, and created a gorgeous design concept. I wanted a bright, clean space, with some moody tones and an overall more mature vibe–and THEY DELIVERED.
I had a crazy amount of requests for links, so I will include them all at the end of the post–Until then, here are some more shots of the room I still can’t believe is mine!
The past few days in this zen space have been incredible. It was definitely a worthwhile investment. But not all rooms need a huge or expensive overhaul–just by adding some color, plants, organizers, decor that brings you joy, or even just feng shui your existing pieces can make a huge difference in creating YOUR personal sanctuary.
Green couch- Only $295 and is a futon! Not a super cozy couch, but great for decor and small seating areas.
Canopy bed frame- Just shy of 7ft tall, fills up a lot of empty vertical space and makes it feel SO much cozier in here!
Nightstand dressers- They scored these on a huge discount from Shabundy’s (@shabundystaylorsville @shabundysprovo) but they are originally from Pottery Barn.
Large dresser- Also on discount at Shabundy’s (@shabundystaylorsville @shabundysprovo) but originally from Crate and Barrel.
Brass knobs on the large dresser- The original hardware was pretty bland, so they upgraded it with these beauties!
Chandelier- The cutest candle-lit look!
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!
Table Lamps- We’ve had these for a while and continue to be obsessed with them!
Sheets- I was over dealing with white sheets…so we went with a warm taupe.
Comforter- Waffle weave for some added texture.
Euro throw pillow- Simple, but delicate addition.
