There’s something about having white in your room that creates such an ambient environment – bright, airy, clean – a new day. When you open your curtains, the whole room brightens – bouncing off of your white comforter, pillows, throws.
This gorgeous bedroom inspo w/ luxe white and gold details is the perfect balance of modern white and touch of grey, gold and of course the splash of flowers. I’ve dug through some of my favorite places for decor like Lulu & Georgia, One Kings Lane, Z Gallerie and west elm. If you are looking for something that’s unique, individual to your style and within price range – these are all good options – without losing any quality. I also LOVE utilizing Etsy and Amazon for all my small decor details for things like side tables and tray settings.
While I’m more of a light ivory/taupe kind of person because I love vintage style, white decor is the next best thing in line with a modern, clean feel. I’m revealing where you can get your hands on this headboard plus a few more of my favorite items to brighten up and refresh your sleeping quarters. There’s nothing like changing up your room to change up your lifestyle. I’m no doctor, but I fully believe that refreshing the style of your bedroom can refresh the style of your life – and potentially refresh the way you sleep. There is science in color – including white.

Sweet dreams lovies,
Becoming a morning person is the best thing that’s ever happened to me, and I have my 7:30am PR class in college to thank for that. Now that I work full time (very full) it’s crucial for me to be able to get the most time out of each and every day.
Today I woke up at 6am – alive, awake, alert and enthusiastic. I decided to go for a run, even though I ran last night. Then I came home, showered, made the best breakfast ever (two fried eggs on avocado toast with turkey) and stopped by the market to get fresh squeezed orange juice. Meanwhile I was there, I came across this gorgeous bouquet of pink summer roses and canary sunflowers. 💐

Tip: keep them out in the open on my where they will get the most sun.

That home-y feeling : coziness, comfort, safety, tranquility. All things your bedroom should be – which does not equivilate to boring or average.
Contrary to popular belief you can have born style and comfort in your home – even without breaking the bank. Here I’m going to show you some of my favorite places I find the best pieces to tie together where I lay my head at night (and some cases don’t lay my head but binge on Netflix while binging on ice cream).
There are a three important components in the makings of a bedroom: the lighting, the layout, the color palette.
Lighting: the more the better – Windows, lamps, ceiling, candles
Layout: the open the better – create the illusion of taller ceilings and larger floors = more space.
- tall curtains
- tall upward facing floor lamps
- Light color rugs
- Rug runners (long skinny rugs) – create the illusion of wider floors – especially light color
- neutral neutral neutral
- subtle pops of color that are removable / interchangeable
- Core Light Options (pick one and can play with the different hue levels for contrast): mauve, blush, taupe, sand, ivory, heather grey, Sky periwinkle blue, beige
- Secondary Dark Options (best in moderation – shouldn’t be core color): slate blue, burgundy, plum, midnight navy, black, charcoal grey, olive, dark chocolate brown
- Tertiary Pop Options: depends on your primary light color and secondary darker color – reds and greens can get too loud and distracting – stick to pops using softer hues of yellow, purple, coral or blue – you could even play with splashes of gold, rose gold, silver and bronze
Here’s to making the layout work:

I’ll be posting again soon about how to choose the right bed frame, headboard, footboard, bed bench, more pillows, more throws, and bedding-comforters that I love to snuggle in.
Also watch for how you can easily transition your bedroom from summer to fall – it’s all in the decor details – coming soon!!
“Humble Morning Coffee Abode”=
That special spot in your home where you sip your morning cup of Colombian or light roast blend of coffee with light milk and no sugar (ok, lots of sugar).
Every morning you wake up you have to have that safe, comfortable, relaxing place to start your day. Whether you read the newspaper, talk to family on the phone, or flip through magazines, it’s so important to take 10 minutes for yourself before jetting off to your car and taking off to work for the day. When you start your day on a comfortable and happy note you are less likely to become easily stressed throughout the day.
Regardless of your personal style there are a few tips and tricks to getting the Most “humble” out of your morning abode.
- Neutrals are your friend – ivory, beige, taupe, blush, heather grey, rustic reddish oranges, sage blue, olive, and off whites
- Make use of accent pillows – pick fuzzy furs, subtle patterns like floral, marble and nature-like objects
- Get a few floor plants – not suggesting turning it into a camping ground or forest, but a nice floor plant like bamboo sticks, tall grass, baby’s breath, and table plants add a touch of nature which accentuates calmness
- Area rug – either get a strong pattern or a simple solid depending on the color of your couch and table – if you have darker furniture get a light color rug and vice versa. Stay away from pure white as that’s hard to clean. If you pick a pattern, you can mismatch your pillows to go along with it. Try to stick to colors like taupe, navy, large diamond shape pattern, criss cross pattern, or patterns like chic boho, vintage, simply modern
- Wall art – pick something striking but pleasing and not alarming or outlandish. Keep it simple but can have a pop of color like the above turquoise and gold. If you have pops of color like gold, red or black in your accent pillows or rug – pick those up and have a smidge of it splashed in the wall art to tie it all together. Don’t be afraid of doing something besides art – like decorative mirrors, wall vases, large wall clocks, and carved wooden canvases
- Storage – there are plenty of unique ways to store blankets, like hanging racks or woven baskets next to the couch to avoid messiness
- Table decor – depending on the table – glass or wooden – depends on your table decor. Stick to things like candles of differentiating heights, mirrored trays, mason jars, or other decorative jars, marble candle holders or antique table clocks
