Bedroom Redesign

Living in Los Angeles definitely has its perks.  I feel so very lucky to live in a beautiful and safe town filled with some of the best restaurants and shopping in the world.  While my surroundings are amazing, rent in this area is pretty ridiculous and space is scarce as well.  

When Kevin and I were looking for an apartment we stumbled on what seemed like a dream.  Large two bedroom newly renovated apartment, centrally located, and decent rent.  Only problem?  Our bedroom is pretty small!  We had to be creative with our furniture and settle for a queen sized bed (nothing bigger would fit!) but it works.

When we originally decorated our bedroom we pretty much went for muted tones.  To this day I really don't know why, but after two years I was ready for a change.  So I treated myself to a mini shopping spree at Target and this is what I came up with :)


Grey and yellow is one of my favorite color combinations.  I like the idea of bright colors in the bedroom because our family room is filled with deep reds and browns.  Of course I had to get a duvet with stripes, it just feels fun!


These sheets are comfortable, cool, and cute.  I was going to do basic yellow but ultimately decided that mixing prints would add more depth.


This lamp is still from my old design, I'm still on the hunt for a yellow shade!  But I'm going to slowly incorporate yellow pieces to the room.






Of course I had to add some pictures of Paczki and Tommy.  They sleep in our bed every night and they approve!

Hope you enjoyed something other than an outfit post!  What colors do you have in your bedroom?

xoxo

  2. You did a great job with your redesign! I absolutely love that lamp, and the colors on your bedspread are divine.
    Your outfit is fabulous too! I so love to mix polka dots and the shape of that top is so fun and unique.

  4. Bonjour Ashley, vous formez avec Kevin, un couple adorable, et vos petits chiens (nains de jardins comparés aux nôtres) sont mignons; Ici dans le mas nous avons un lit appelé lit-bateau en bois massif, bateau, nous y ramons pour atteindre nos rêves, "l'inaccessible étoile"..c'est une chanson d'autrefois, d'un grand chanteur Français Jacques Brel; aujourd'hui j'ai deux chiennes recueillies à la protection des animaux.

  16. I LOVE this color combination. And it's such a nice change of pace to see some interior design. Also, I absolutely love that you're wearing polka dots on polka dots. It just makes me like you even more :)

  17. I love it! I too have been having the bedroom blues :( My apt is in the Miracle Mile area and we can only afford a 1 bedroom. I have stuff over flowing everywhere since we moved from a 2 bedroom. I have decorated the rest of the house, but the bedroom is just a miss mashed mess. I need to redecorate too!
