Happy Friday!!! I feel like a mom that is so ready for my husband to come home and help with the kids. We got a puppy last week and while Paul has been at work I just get so nervous. “Is she supposed to be sleeping right now? Is she eating enough? She is chewing on the rug. Will she throw up from that?!”
I’m a little anxious because she is only one pound and of course fragile. Secondly, my family has a Yorkiepoo who was her size and when we got her the second week she almost died from hypoglycemic shock. I never want to go through that again, so I’m definitely the overzealous dog mom. Doing everything I can to make this little animal happy and healthy. haha. I now need that sign everyone has that says, “I work so my dog can have a better life.” 😉
But Paul is the dog whisperer so I know with him home for the weekend we will be able to work on some more simple commands and help set her schedule up better for her! We finally got her to sleep through the whole night and I was so proud of her I about wanted to give her 15 Sprinkle dog cupcakes, but had to refrain! I’m THAT dog mom. Oops!
Anyways, today is a little peak into our bedrooms! I do want to say that this was photographed before our wedding, so Paul hadn’t moved in. And we have definitely changed a lot! I’m working on a post for the new year with all of our updates! 🙂 [It will include my office/closet!]
My biggest cost saving tip with bedrooms is to keep your bedding white! I have Pottery Barn bedding we got for our wedding, but Target has great options too! This way you can seasonally update pillows but you aren’t always wanting to repaint or redecorate. I remember I used to get printed quilts from Anthropologie and every 6 months would want to buy a new one! Now having white I don’t do that, and it saves so much money! White bedding also allows for a gender neutral base so if you want to throw in a leopard pillow and he throws in a navy one, neither of it looks too masculine or feminine.
Another tip for living with a boy, is to have your own little vanity area. I got this chest from Nebraska Furniture Mart and we repainted most of it. It’s small enough Paul doesn’t feel like there are hundreds of perfumes/watches/necklaces all over our bedroom. I love that is has drawers so I’m able to organize my sunglasses, wallets and extra girly pieces.
I framed editorial pictures of George Clooney and Gwen Stefani to differentiate who’s side of the bed was who’s. These pictures are super sentimental to me because coworkers actually gave them to me for my birthday when I worked in PR! They knew how much I loved fashion editorials and they had saved them for me. I love to incorporate sentimental touches through framing that way you can take a chic spin on something that could easily get torn up or misplaced!
I created our gallery wall with Framebridge. They will print and frame for you, and the pieces come ready to mount! I can’t encourage this enough. I have done the 15 trips to Homegoods trying to find a great frame and then Paul rolls his eyes when I get home and we see that we can’t even wire the back of it.
I hope this helps give you some weekend inspo for updating your bedrooms! Thanks so much for stopping by!
