It’s definitely getting colder here in Utah and as we prepare for a (hopefully) snowy winter and the holidays, I’ve been making seasonal changes around the house. One of the biggest updates has been getting new bedding for fall and winter. I thought I’d reshoot the bedroom and show you guys how it’s looking these days. It’s definitely more cozy, darker, and a bit more colorful- in a desaturated palette sort of way. Click through for the new tour and resource list…
Step into the master and have a look! Our bedroom typically looks like this in the spring and summer, but I’m a big fan of swapping things seasonally for both functionality and aesthetic purposes.
I like adding a coverlet or matelassé for added warmth and texture. In addition to heavier bedding, I also wanted to darken the space a little. We already had a bit of navy in the space from the nightstands (although they weren’t always that color), so bringing in dark blue bedding was an obvious choice.
In addition to new basic bedding, I’m pretty much a hoarder of throws. I added this plaid throw to the foot of the bed that is the perfect palette for the room! Throws are super practical… you can snuggle up with them to read, watch TV, take a nap, etc. I could go on and on. They’re also really handy when guests are staying over and you’re scouring your home for extra blankets.
I also wanted to touch on a few things we’ve been liking and disliking in our master bedroom so far. At the top of the ‘Loves’ list? The grid gallery wall with the vintage ski art. I’m still pretty obsessed with that. Living in Utah and being avid skiers, these vintage prints are so fun and fitting in our home. If you’re interested in creating your own grid gallery wall… check out this post for art ideas, tips, and even exact layouts to replicate.
In addition to loving the artwork, other things we’ve been obsessed with from the get go? The sconces! We hardly ever use the overhead light on the ceiling fan. The room is pretty bright during the day and gets a lot of natural light, and in the evening, we rely solely on the sconces. I love that they hinge and we can control our own from either side of the bed. I often read while Emmett dozes off to sleep, and it’s the perfect amount of light without waking him.
Since the reveal, we’ve added a little gadget to the room. Remember reading about our Aera in the living room? We totally got another one for the bedroom. It hides on the back of my nightstand and makes the room smell amazing! It puts me in the best mood as I go to bed each night.
If you’re wondering what’s on the ‘dislike’ list… there are some things we’re not loving as much as we thought we would in the bedroom. I have to say, I’m not stoked with the functionality of the window treatments and I’m totally to blame.
They look beautiful and they do give us privacy, but I 100% should’ve opted for the blackout shades and spent the extra money. Typically privacy shades are enough, but our neighbors have extremely bright lights they leave on 24/7 (super annoying), and it definitely filters through the roman shades. I’m the type that likes a room pitch black when I’m sleeping, so that’s definitely my biggest regret in this space.
If you’re wondering about sources in the space as it is now, I’ll link everything below.
01: roman shade // 02: ceiling fan // 03: leather bed // 04: wall sconce // 05: nightstand // 06: euro shams // 07: sherpa throw // 08: coverlet // 09: grid pillow // 10: art post here // 11: wooden bowl // 12: sheepskin rug // 13: aera diffuser // 14: Sherwin-Williams Gray Screen (trim color) // 15: Sherwin-Williams Snowbound (wall color)
Do you guys have any favorite items in the bedroom? I have a hard time nailing down my best finds and most coveted items. The bed is definitely a piece I can’t see us parting with anytime soon. We’ve had it for years and love it! I custom designed it, but linked something similar in the roundup.
Our bedroom might be small, but it’s definitely cozy… even more so now with the bedding swap. It’s a place I’ve come to really enjoy spending time in.
I’d love to hear your thoughts in the comments below! Which version of our bedroom do you prefer? The spring / summer look or this fall / winter look? Do you guys also switch out bedding based on the season? Questions? Comments? I’m all ears!
