It’s time to stop using a moving box as a nightstand and it’s time to stop re-situating our mattress on its base every night. We are starting our bedroom THIS week and I’m committed to ordering a bed and a nightstand. A rug. A dresser. I want to do a make-under on the fireplace and get some art and proper window treatments–blinds with a remote would be a dream!
We’re calling this phase 1 of our bedroom and I’m putting together a mood board to share with you hopefully tomorrow! But today I wanted to share with you a bunch of bed options I’m considering. I think I’ve been a little paralyzed in pulling the trigger on a bed because of the pressure it has to be the bed. But here’s the truth–there are less expensive versions of almost every bed out there if you want to try a style on.
Or! Even if you do go in on a bed and after a few years, need a change–it’s OKAY. Move it to a different room. Sell it to someone that will love it. Restyle it (sometimes you just need a restyle.) I had to give myself a taste of my own advice and get out of my head that I have to choose a bed that I’m going to love for a decade.
Although that’s the ultimate goal, right now my goals are a little simpler–make our bedroom a relaxing retreat that feels like us. Here are a few beds that caught my eye:

We designed the Charly line of sofas, chairs, and ottomans with perfect proportions for comfort — with wide arms, a loungey depth, and stylish and practical lumbar pillows. Available in 70 kid-friendly, pet-friendly fabrics, this line was created with families in mind.
Our wood grain Shaker cabinet fronts were designed for busy, high-traffic homes like ours. Clad with durable textured thermofoils, this line is compatible with Sektion, Akurum, Godmorgon, and Besta cabinets from IKEA. It's the perfect, practical way to add the warmth of wood to all the rooms of your home.
We have teamed up with Loloi to create a line of rugs that are as affordable as they are beautiful. This collection houses a great mix of traditional and modern rugs, in cottage-y colorways, as well as vintage-inspired beauties that you’ll want to roll out in every room.
We partnered with Stuga on a line of hardwood floors — The Ingrid is really livable, and the color is very neutral. It doesn’t lean warm or cool, it’s that just right in-between. We have really loved putting it everywhere in our house. It’s the best jumping-off point for design, no matter your interior style. In addition to being beautiful, Ingrid is really durable — we have three kids, and we always have a home construction project going on. Ingrid stands up to it all.

Over the weekend Brooke (our social media manager) and I went to the Parade of Homes in the Raleigh area and it was so fun to get a feel of how other people in our new area are living and living large! The purpose of the parade is so that home builders and designers can […]
