Our bedroom has been through a lot of transitions since closing on our home at the beginning of May. Before moving in, we had our contractors remove the tray ceiling, board up the doorway on the right leading to the front room and patch and paint. (The walls and trim are both SW White Flour.) The new white oak floors were laid and stained, and then we moved in! Chris and I both dreamed of putting our bed in the window nook as soon as we saw our bedroom and even had Modsy work it up so we could see if our King bed would fit.
The rendering looked amazing, but the real life version looks and feels even better. We ordered this bed with a low headboard that won’t be here for a few months so we can still enjoy looking out the windows with our bed placed there and bonus, still watch TV at night across from our bed.
The room today has all of our favorites in it from our last bedroom, and it really allowed us to feel settled right away. Our nightstands, lamps, even our sheets — especially our sheets — made it feel like home.
Boll & Branch not only makes the highest quality sheets I’ve ever owned — they’re also ethically sourced, fair-trade certified, and made of the softest organic cotton. They’re heirloom quality, and the style is timeless and sophisticated.
This is our primary bedroom, and I just got a second set of these Boll & Branch Percale Simple Stripe Sheet Set in Dune (my favorite!) for the guest house because they last and last and get better with every wash. And the soft stripes go with everything. I layered on our favorite waffle bed blanket (the ONLY blanket Chris approves of — it’s truly the perfect weight) and got a new duvet from Boll & Branch — the Signature Eyelet, white on white — with the most delicate details and luxury craftsmanship. It felt fresh to have one new thing in this space.

Besides the bed on its way, I’m also looking for a new light fixture for this space! I think something romantic like a crystal chandelier would be so pretty! Maybe something like what we hung in our last closet?! And as for the shutters — we’re going to live with them a little longer before we make any final decisions. I think that they can be charming, but automatic roman shades also sound really nice right now.
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.

The next project we’re checking off our 2023 project list is the mudroom! This used to be the laundry room until we built out a much bigger, better laundry room upstairs. So, in the meantime, this space has been exclusively Cricket’s room. Cricket will still have a special space here, but we’re transforming this dingy […]
