Bedroom Update Happiness

So it's tuesday, and around here it's garbage day. I love when the truck comes and picks everything up. It feels like a fresh start and I like to know that I could fill that can again if I need to but I never do.
As I sit here I just wrote the most giant blog post, that I've literally probably written 6 times, explaining why I stopped blogging and disappeared. Vulnerability and truth are difficult things. It's a tender tightrope we walk when we try to decide what to share. I guess it's not going to be something I share today.
I am happy to share my bedroom makeover. It's been a tremendous source of inspiration. I always tell clients that their bedroom truly needs to be a refuge and a restorative place. It's so important when you give so much in life to have a place to go to refuel.
I liked my room before but always crave change. I swapped out a pale grey/blue+ cream palette for one that is cream and black with touches of metal, leopard, flame stitch and other yummy things. The swap was inspired by the Moroccan Shag rug I ordered from Rugs USA. I think by now it's almost a blogger prerequisite to own it. I waited until black friday and got 75% off but they're almost always on a 50% off special if you can't wait 9 months.
Did any of you see the televised bachelor wedding/ Sean and Catherine? I thought I'd die if I heard her describe her theme as "grown sexy" one more time… but I laughed as this redo was unfolding at the same time. Grown Sexy? Perhaps. Maybe it will inspire you to create your own necessary refuge in your room. We all need one. Happy Tuesday friends. xo

Hot damn pretty.....black and white is what I live for.

I agree, the master bedroom should be done first. I'm telling myself that because right now it's not even on the list.
Thanks for the inspiration and encouragement. I love your love for your boys, it shows in every picture you share.

I find you talented, inspiring and oh so intriguing Erica! I don't know too much at all about 'your story' but I have a feeling it is one that many would love for you to share... when you are good and ready xxx

Oh I hear ya on the fine line of what to share and what not to...just go with your gut and you won't regret it. Love the new look of your master bedroom. I have been waffling on what color to paint a thrifted mirror similar to yours, and now that I have seen yours I am going with a flat color, maybe black I can't decide, but I love how your's looks! Thanks for the inspiration.
