Kylee here with an update on our primary bedroom/attic suite! If you’ve been following me on Instagram, then you know this room has been a work in progress since we moved in last summer (see my saved bedroom highlight to catch up!).
We finally got our beautiful hardwood flooring installed and found the coziest bedding, so I wanted to give you a sneak peek at how our bedroom is coming together!
Here was the room when first moved in:
It was a blank slate with white walls and old gray carpet. We immediately knew we wanted to make the room feel cozier with a pretty paint color. I’m also not a fan of wall to wall carpeting, even in the bedroom (my allergies say no) so we planned to install solid wood flooring that would also coordinate with the original flooring in the rest of our home.
We started painting right away, but there were lots of delays on the floors. We finally got the hardwood in a few weeks ago and are thrilled! They completely changed the feel of the room!
We’ve still got a bit more I want to do before it feels “done.” I want to add a rug, some art, and bedside reading sconces are a few items I’m keeping my eye out for. But to be fair, is a room ever really done?! I expect it to continue to evolve, but after months of feeling like we were “squatting” until the floors came in, we are finally enjoying a cozy place of our own!
I will share more details and angles of our bedroom as well as more of the before and afters in the coming weeks, but today I wanted to give you a sneak peek of the flooring and new bedding. Hopefully you like progress posts!
We had been debating what bedding we wanted for months and purchased and returned several options. We’ve always had patterned colorful sheets and bedding, but nothing we found seemed just right. We finally decided that all white would be a classic choice. While white bedding is totally new for us, we loved the idea of creating a space that made us feel like we were in a chic luxury hotel! While makes the bed feel so fresh, clean and relaxing!
Quality bedding has always been a priority for us. Considering you spend 1/3 of your life in sheets, I think the quality is a very important consideration! I’ve heard great things about Brooklinen so we took advantage of their birthday sale (everything is 20% off!) and are so happy we did!
We chose the Luxe Hardcore Bundle, which saves 25% rather than buying separately. The bedding bundle comes with a flat sheet, fitted sheet, two sets of pillow cases, and a duvet cover. You can mix and match styles and patterns.
While we were very tempted by a few patterns (I loved the Oxford Stripe!), in the end white just felt right. These are the softest, most buttery feeling sheets we have ever owned. My husband has been waking up every morning proclaiming that it’s like sleeping in the clouds and I totally agree.
Not only is Brooklinen bedding quality, but the little details have made all the difference. The sheets were labeled with short side/long side tags (super helpful especially on a king side bed!). The duvet cover has those handy corner ties so your duvet isn’t sliding all over the place. And the pillow cases have envelope closures, making everything look clean and finished.
Leo approves as well, which is important. After all, we did buy this king sized bed after he joined our family to make room for all of us!
If you need new bedding, I can’t recommend Brooklinen enough! They are having their biggest sale of the year now through May 4th! Everything is 20% off and automatically applied at checkout (so no need for a code!).
Follow along on Instagram for more house updates and I will back here soon to share more of this space!
