house update – our bedroom

so, this was a long time coming.  you may remember this post where we were trying to decide between two wallpapers.  ultimately we decided to go with the seascape wallpaper by abigail edwards  because we thought it would help create a peaceful, quiet space. and we both love the ocean and thought that the waves framing the view of the pool (not shown) in the sliding glass doors would be rad. and i think it is.  

our bedroom is still a long way from done- i’d love to switch out those bedside table lamps for something hanging and gold (like this or these), get new bedding with some extra soft and textural throw pillows, a cozy rug for the floor and bring in another piece of art. and i think i’d like to see either more color or another plant. i haven’t decided. all of that will happen after we’ve traded in the patio furniture for a proper couch.  it’s slow moving, but one foot in front of the other!  *all sources listed at the bottom of the post, in case you’re interested!

we spent the bulk of our resources for the house so far in window coverings, a water filtration system, and a washer & dryer.  fun stuff i tell you!  which is why the ceiling fan and wallpaper we picked for this room felt like a real treat. i’m practicing my patience as we piecemeal this sweet home together.

there was a great debate in our house about the tv in the bedroom.  i was against the idea but lou insisted that we’d be glad it was there when we got sick or just wanted to spend a cozy night in bed watching movies. he won and he’s right.  it’s pretty nice, even if it doesn’t get much use.  i tried my hardest to counteract the big black box by putting our wedding photos out!  it’s the first time we’ve ever had photos of ourselves anywhere in the house but the fridge and i kind of love it. seeing them brings me right back to our wedding day and fills my heart right up.
