When you’re a parent I’ve found that no where in the home seems quite like it’s just YOURS. You jump in the tub to find it full of bath toys, or go to pull your wallet out of your oddly heavy purse only to find rocks, sticks and random “collection items” you know, like the piece of garbage the kids couldn’t live without. You hurry and make yourself lunch only look down and see tiny eyes waiting by your feet to help gobble it up-even though you made them the same thing-your lunch looks way better. And don’t even get me started on my journal I found turned into a coloring book *cue the tears*.
I have finally found a place that is just ours (mine and my husbands)-well until around 4am. But from 8:30 till when those tiny little toes come running down the hallway in the early morning me and my husband get the bed ALL to ourselves! The bed is the place that we can enjoy some alone time. Some quiet time to recharge, to meditate, to pray, to talk about life, our goals, our challenges, to not only daydream but catch some ‘ZZZ’ in dreamland and of course bing tv, and spend time as a couple.
Since these few hours we get together are so cherished, needed, and WANTED! I wanted to create a space that was first off comfy (you can see my basic bedding post here) so I started with the basics. Well now that the comfy level is at 100% we decided to spice up our bedroom and give only our bed a makeover! You can see the before with the pink comforter, to now! It’s so crazy what can happened to your room with a small change like bedding. I went with more gender neutral colors and LOTS and LOTS of texture, I love to use throw pillows and throw blankets to achieve this! If I had to choose only two favorite pieces (which is really hard) it would be the fur throw and the woven shag pillow. In all honestly I am just so happy with how it all came together, and how just a few changes to the bedding can change the entire room, and allow me and my husband to make it a little escape just for us. Where is your favorite place to escape?
