As I’ve previously talked about we are planning to move out of our cozy and simple apartment into a house. Our lease ends at the end of the month and we are not planning to renew it. Living in an apartment has been great. It’s allowed us to simplify our lives, save up money, pay down debt and spend more time as a family. It really has been a blessing.
The husband and I have been talking and our first priority when we move is to finally put our bedroom first. I cannot tell you how many times we have moved and we spend all our time doing up the kid’s rooms and updating their furniture or their “play” area. We end up coming in dead last. We end up too tired to do anything to our room so it ends up just getting left behind. We have been married for 10 years and we don’t even have a real bedroom set. In fact, our bed sits on a box spring. There is no reason why we shouldn’t have an adult bed with grownup functional dressers and furniture. We should have done this years ago, but we didn’t. So we are doing it now, and the process on figuring out what we want and don’t want has been pretty fun.
For our bed we are looking at dark colors. We don’t want white, anything light or anything metal. I like cherry wood. My husband, Ben, likes black. So we’ll probably meet in the middle and go with cherry wood. A sleigh bed or a farmhouse bed is the style we are going for. We will definitely be buying a brand new mattress as well, we are so beyond overdue for a mattress its not even funny.
As much as I would love to do something cute like mustard yellow dressers or turquoise night stands, I realize I share a room with a man and that is not going to happen. So instead we have come up with a few dresser styles that we both like and would take in the colors of either black or brown depending on our bed frame color.
We will be getting nightstands. We do a lot of reading in bed and I always have notebooks lying around. It would be nice to have a nightstand where our tablets, current books and my notebooks can go. My goal really is to make our room clutter free. Give everything a home without it crowding the top of our dressers and becoming an eyesore. No matter the color in the picture, we would probably only go with brown or black, something that would match our bed frame.
I’m really looking forward to decorating our bedroom. The goal is to make it a relaxing room with organization and no clutter. A peaceful retreat at the end of the day. I’m looking forward to buying quality pieces that will last. I can’t wait to find art for our bedroom that we both like; to finally have a functional dresser and bed…and a new mattress! The Container Store is finally coming to Utah, and I cannot freaking wait!! That store will be my go to place for getting our home organized and functional. I’m am a big fan of that store and have spent so long shopping from them online that I’m looking forward to being able to go in person and get what I want.
