Home: Nightstand Shopping

We decided to play with the layout of our bedroom. Our bedroom is quite small, so it's like solving a jigsaw puzzle. Our most recent layout didn't have room for a nightstand. You can see below how the bed almost hits the door to my closet. 

This time we moved the bed to the opposite wall to allow for nightstands. I didn't like putting things on the floor, especially since if I left things on the floor it would be so tempting for Boba to chew on them. I haven't decided if I wanted a nightstand with or without drawers. I think I think I'm leaning toward drawers just so I can store some things nicely, but the nightstands without drawers are really nice looking! Here's a roundup of my favorites from my search. Which one is your favorite?

1. Hairpin Table by Schoolhouse Electric & Supply Co. // 2. Mid-century nightstand by West Elm // 3. Strut Side Table by Blu Dot // 4. Terrace Nightstand by West Elm // 5. Metal Accordion Side Table from Urban Outfitters // 6. Aldama Side Table from The Citizenry

Now that I've found a few that I like, we just need to pick one and pick a bed frame! I'm so excited for our bedroom refresh. I'll give an update once we put it all together. 

Home: Bed Frame Shopping

We've been using a West Elm platform bed that I found on Craigslist for sometime now and as much as I loved it. I decided that it was time for a refresh. This time we decided to go with a bed frame with a headboard. I love both looks, so I didn't mind either way.  

After spending time looking on Pinterest looking for some bedroom inspiration, I first hit West Elm. I love their mid-century modern collection. I decided to keep looking at what other options were out there though. Below is a roundup of my favorite finds from the internet. 


1. Mid-Century Bed Acorn by West Elm // 2. Deco Upholstered Bed by West Elm // 3. Davis Wingback Bed from One Kings Lane  // 4. Linea II bed by Crate and Barrel // 5. Piers Wooden Bed by Dwell Studio // 6. New Standard Queen Bed by Blu Dot 

I think that I'm still leaning towards the first one. I just love how clean and simple it looks, but also with a little dash of flair with the tapered sides. I also love the look of an upholstered bed frame, but I'm scared that it'll catch too much dust and I don't do well with that. I think wood frames would be a little bit easier to manage. We'll see! I'll let Grant weigh in too. :) Which one is your favorite? 

Pretty in Pins: Pink Sofas

I've been a little obsessed with pink sofas lately, but don't really have a place for one in our apartment right now. Here's a roundup of my favorite living rooms with pink sofas that I found on Pinterest. Enjoy! 

Pretty in Pins: Get Crafty

Happy Monday! I can't believe that it is already March! I want to get crafty this month, and found some fun DIY ideas on Pinterest lately. I also hope to make some clay necklaces that I may add to my store if all goes well. Stay tuned. For now, enjoy these projects. Have a great week!

Pretty in Pins: Home Dreaming

Today I spent the day cleaning our apartment, getting rid of things, and dreaming about what I hope our next place one day looks like. I can't wait to have my own home one day, but I surely don't have the money to own a home. Nevertheless I have made a Pinterest board full of the many ideas I have for it when the time comes! Here are some of my favorite home pins. Hope everyone is having a great long weekend!
