Timeless Tips for a Bedroom Refresh- Without Renovating


Over the summer, I decided our primary bedroom was in need of a little refresh. Aside from our custom bed, we threw together mismatched and thrifted furniture to create a functional space.

If you’re hunting for an easy or beginner sewing project this winter- or for your holiday decor… this cozy faux fur lumbar pillow is one to save and try!

The bedroom was also very sparse and lacking personality, so installing artwork & mirrors, lighting, and investing in luxe bedding went a long way in making the space feel much better.


Bedside Table Styling

I styled my bedside table with some basics- and I even brought out a photo of Emmett & I… which I never do.  I think the bedroom is the perfect place to insert special photos, if you’re going to do so.


Setup Your Workspace


Also on “my side” of the bedroom, I added one of my animal print chairs. I get ready for the day in our primary suite, and I thought a chair might be helpful for that…


Setup Your Workspace


I decided to layer a geometric area rug over our wool carpet. This was purely for aesthetic purposes- I envisioned a graphic moment to anchor the space.

Replace Textiles… swap rugs or carpet, window treatments, and bedding. Swap Light Fixtures… consider bedside sconces, lamps, and replace dated hardwired fixtures for updated options.
