Bedroom Makeover

All items above from Urbanara. 

Recently, I've been dreaming of bedroom makeovers. You see, we moved in to our cute little apartment almost a year ago.  The rent is cheap, there are big windows, cute historical details, and hardwood floors (albeit the floors are pretty destroyed.)   And while I decorated our work space, hung up artwork in the living room and arranged the books on the bookshelf in that hard to achieve practical-but-also-artful way, I never did anything to the bedroom.

I suppose the motivation isn't nearly as great to invest time and money into a private space, since the only people that would really see it would be myself and my husband.

Well, I woke up the other day in our mess of a bedroom - still no headboard, no matching duvet covers, no headboard, no bedskirt, and not a stitch of decor on the walls and decided things had to change.  I want the bedroom of our place to be a place we can relax and feel good in. At the moment, I only feel stressed out by the mess created by lack of storage. 
So! The shopping begins. In addition to all of the bed essentials, I'm on the hunt for a rug, some beautiful new curtains, and a fabulous light fixture to hang above the bed.  I've already found some great options! I'm currently in love with the UK site Urbanara (which now ships worldwide!) and am also pulling lots of inspiration from my pinterest boards 

What are your thoughts on bedroom makeovers? Do you tackle them first or push them to the bottom of the priority list like I do?  Where do you find your inspiration? Where do you shop? Let's talk - I could use all the help I can get!

Hmm... I've been thinking about home improvement a lot lately too. I was going to say that it's low on my priority list, but now that I think of it, I actually have made a lot of changes to that room. I do think it's really important to feel like your bedroom is your sanctuary, so even if no one else sees it, it should be a high priority if you don't feel that way. Just my thoughts! I stalk the HauteLook sales and sometimes see nice rugs on there for a pretty good deal, but I haven't bought any yet. For bedding, I'm a little obsessed with the Anthropologie bedding (the sol linen duvet is calling my name), but haven't quite been able to bring myself to spend the money on it. :)

P.S. Hey Daryl! It's been a while! It's Kelsea from Pink Wonderland, but I've started a new blog. Can't wait to catch up with you and what you've been up to while I've been away from the blogging world! <3

I'm hoping to redo the bathroom soon. It usually takes the bottom of the list for me. Oddly enough, the bedroom gets first priority for me! Although my desk is also in there. While the living room and other areas are more public, it is very important to me to fall asleep and wake up in a place that is relaxing to me. Of course, it also had the most work to do - when we moved in it had four differently colored NEON walls. Kids used to be in the room. :( Haha, so it was well worth the time in there!
