I’ve been in my current apartment for almost 4 years now and I still love it as much as I did, the day we moved in! Only thing is that my decor style has changed drastically from when I was 21 and shopping in vintage stores. Don’t get me wrong you can find some great gems at vintage stores but I don’t want people to feel like they’ve stepped into a time machine when they come to my apartment.
So just before Sean & I got married in May we cleared out the stuff we absolutely couldn’t stand but obviously there are still bits in the house that need updating. And since we’re not rolling in money I’ve been slowly updating furniture & decor room by room. Bearing in mind we have four rooms not including the lounge & kitchen! So it’s taking some time!
My most recently project is to update the bedroom and I’m so happy to say that I’m working with MRP Home to do this! I’ve gathered some inspiration from Pinterest (obviously) and then came up with more realistic ideas! So I want the room to feel cosy but still light & airy. Since I have my office & Sean has his game room, I want our bedroom to be a really chilled, calm space in the house for both of us.
I would love to do a picture ledge above our bed to minimize the amount of holes we make in the wall (we’re renting), and opposite our bed I want to put up a big picture of us on our wedding. I like the idea of introducing some more muted colours, like grey, white & pink (Sean doesn’t mind). Our bedroom is quite large so I’ll have to add some rugs to fill up the space & I love adding different textures into a space to make it feel more cosy.
I’ll be working with MRP Home to update our space with some new furniture, decorative items & soft furnishings. As I said I’ve been getting ideas from Pinterest and browsing the MRP Home site constantly (they’re always adding new items) to decide what is a necessity and what can wait till later.
So since I’m finished with all the prep work it’s now time for the shopping!! For majority of this week I’ve been visiting various MRP Home stores to see everything in person & to pick up a few of the pieces I’ve been eyeing on their site. I bought so many cool things, so if you want to see them, check out today’s Come Shopping With Me + Haul video.
If you want to get a better idea of the vibe I’m going for, check out my bedroom Pinterest board and maybe it will give you some inspo for your bedroom too! I’ve also picked out a few of my favorite items from the MRP Home online store to give you an idea of what I’m going for.
Can we just take a moment for that beautiful pink velvet chair – I think I need it for my office!
