I mentioned it last week that we are planning to redo/revamp a few rooms in our home. The number one on  my list is our bedroom. Let me preface by saying, we live in a rental space that is under 800 square feet. We've lived in this home for pretty much all of our adult lives so far...a whopping 3 years. Stephen and I both had very weird home-y type furniture in our own rooms before we moved out. I bought a yellow/mustard vintage sofa when I was 14 because I loved it so much. I kept it in my room up until I moved out. Stephen had an entire entertainment center. Like middle console for TV etc, and two very tall towers that stood next to either side to house his rather large record collection. So when we moved in together, being 18 and 21,  we pretty much had furniture and no reason (ahem money) to buy new things. 

This has taken a toll on almost everything in our home. We've accumulated things here and there we needed, but for the most part, all of our furniture is either hand-me-downed, gifted, or something we already had. Nothing goes together completely the way I want it to, but right now we make it work. Somehow in the spirit of make things work our room turned into to a giant collection of blue, orange, and whatever else we could find. There isn't anything particularly wrong with it, and I am amazed by the amount of things that go with this scheme we have in our home, it's just not what I want. 

I've been gathering ideas and inspiration for this room for months now, but putting together a visual really helps! I'm more excited than ever to get started on this project. I can't wait to share before and after photos of it all. First and foremost, we must get to an ikea! Can you believe I've never been? 


  1. Never been to an IKEA? Eat before you go. Shop. Load the car. Go back inside and eat meatballs. You're welcome :)

  2. I LOVE that map with the lights around it. What a cool idea. Also, You've never been to IKEA?! It's amazing.


Thank you so much for stopping by and taking the time to comment. It means the world to me!
