Being my favourite room in the house, today I thought I’d share a little bit of bedroom inspiration with you all. If you couldn’t tell from the pictures above (or from my very full Pinterest board), there’s a few common threads. Linen sheets; oatmeal, grey and blush pink hues; big fluffy pillows; oversized blankets you can snuggle under in the winter; and unobtrusive prints which keep the space feeling calm. Our own bedroom isn’t quite so Pinterest-worthy, but I’ve certainly taken quite a few of these elements and incorporated them over the years. Sitting above our dresser is a calming print of the ocean – it’s not anything special, but I do love waking up to it each morning. I’ve purchased a couple sets of linen sheets; truthfully they’re not the ideal situation for us given we have a long haired cat who sheds e-v-e-r-y-w-h-e-r-e, but I love the broken in feel of linen that you don’t quite get with a cotton sheet set. Finally, though it’s summer here, we have a couple of enormous mohair/wool throws for our bed during the colder months – I absolutely freeze in winter, so I rely on these when it gets cold! What type of accents do you like in your bedroom? x

While I usually find myself drawn to those very stereotypical examples of minimal Scandinavian decor, there’s something so warm and inviting about this lush living space filled with green accents, from the plush velvet sofa to the abundance of plants sitting near the window. It’s the mismatched combination of earthy tones that make this space seem so homely. A couple things it has got me thinking about is mixing up textures within our home; while the focal point of this space is clearly the apple green velvet sofa (I feel like this is a stunning option if you’re after one!), the woven chair in a more muted hue, and the leather seat hiding just out of frame add elements of intrigue and interest – perhaps one of the things that I like most about this space!
