Kylee here with an update on our master bedroom / attic suite! If you follow me on Instagram, then you know this piece has been a work in progress since we moved in last summer (see my recorded bedroom highlight to catch up!).
We finally installed our beautiful hardwood floors and found the most comfortable bedding, so I wanted to give you a sneak peek at how our bedroom fits!
Here is the room when moving in:
It was a blank slate with white walls and an old gray carpet. We immediately knew we wanted to make the room cozier with a nice paint color. I’m also not a fan of carpeting, even in the bedroom (my allergies say no), so we planned to install solid wood flooring which would also coordinate with the original flooring in the rest of our home .
We started painting right away, but there were a lot of delays on the floors. We finally received the hardwood a few weeks ago and are thrilled! They completely changed the vibe of the room!
We still have a little more I want to do before it seems “done”. I want to add a rug, artwork and bedside reading sconces are a few things I watch out for. But to be honest, is a play really finished? ! I expect it will continue to evolve, but after months of feeling “hunker down” until the floors arrived, we are finally enjoying a comfortable place of our own!
I’ll be sharing more details and angles of our bedroom as well as other before and afters in the coming weeks, but today I wanted to give you a look at the flooring and new bedding. Hope you like the progress messages!
We debated which bedding we wanted for months and bought and returned several options. We’ve always had colorful patterned sheets and bedding, but nothing we found seemed perfect. We finally decided that all white would be a classic choice. While the white bedding is totally new to us, we loved the idea of creating a space that made us feel like we were in a posh luxury hotel! All while making the bed 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 quality is a very important consideration! Heard great things about Brooklinen so we took advantage of their anniversary sale (everything is 20% off!) and so glad we did!
We chose the Luxe Hardcore Bundle, which saves 25% rather than buying separately. The bedding set includes a flat sheet, a fitted sheet, two sets of pillowcases 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 we liked the white. These are the softest, most creamy sheets we’ve ever owned. My husband wakes up every morning proclaiming it’s like sleeping in the clouds and I totally agree.
Not only is Brooklinen bedding quality, but the little details make all the difference. Sheets were labeled with short/long side labels (very useful, especially on a king-size bed!). The duvet cover has these handy corner ties so your comforter won’t slip all over the place. And the pillowcases have envelope closures, giving everything a clean, finished look.
Leo also approves, which is important. After all, we bought this king size bed after it joined our family to make room for all of us!
If you need new bedding, I can’t recommend Brooklinen highly enough! They’re having their biggest sale of the year until May 4! Everything is 20% off and applied automatically at checkout (so no code needed!).
Follow on Instagram for more updates from the house and I’ll be back here soon to share more from this space!
