Today’s design tip is an oldie but goodie! To make windows look larger, hang curtains high and wide. It’s a trick that makes large spaces feel grand and smaller spaces seem larger, too.
Happy Saturday! ✨
Last week I showed you “hers” aka mine. It would only be fair if this week I showed you “his” side of the room.
If it isn’t apparent from the pics, our room is pretty small. While building we had the option to enlarge our room, at the expense of our younger daughters space. We opted not to do that, as her already small room, would have been the size of a closet! We’ve always had small bedrooms, so it was no biggie for us. We don’t need room to ballroom dance in here. Just a cozy spot to tuck in at night. Besides for the first time in the history of our marriage, we have an ensuite! So we were excited enough about that alone!
The little rattan cubby is 1/2, that have been with us from the start. One of our first joint decor buys. Purchased them for our first little love nest, a basement apartment with no windows in the bedroom. We’ve come a long way! Thank our lucky stars everyday to finally be in a place of our own and to have so much natural light!
Because our room is small and we hadn’t fully decided how we were going to maximize the space, didn’t want to commit to a specific spot for hardwired lighting. Fell in love with these brass & black swing arm lamps, long before our house was close to completion. Debated about them for too long, and by the time I had decided they would actually be perfect they sold out! Talk about disappointment! 😢
Story doesn’t end there though, these were the ones that *almost* got away! Several months later I got word that the store was closing down, really sad because I loved it! One of the owners contacted me to let me know that while cleaning out their warehouse, they found more lamps! 😃 Oh happy day! Ordered two on the spot!
The side table is the other half of the German ones we were hand me downed. The little green lantern was a spontaneous purchase, but I’m still smitten with it years later. Sorry they didn’t have more! These pom pom blankets are all the rage as throws. While they look lovely, word from the wise here, they get impossibly tangled! 😫
Hope you’re having a great weekend! 🤗💕

Dear Saturday, I’ll take at least 2, please and thank you • 😊 • Super excited about how my project to redecorate our bedroom is coming along. Getting little pieces here and there definitely takes patience, but also extends that feeling of euphoria as you make the space just a little bit more “you”. Loving how the new piece looks up too! I think I may take a nap in that spot a little later 😜 Happy Saturday everyone! •

Saturday morning vibes! I love lazy morning with my little family. We all crawl into bed and watch cartoons while hubby and I drink a big cup of coffee! If you watch my stories you probably know that little 🐶 but if not let me introduce you. That’s Tucker our 10 year old Yorkiepoo. My husband and I got him when we first moved in together and he’s the sweetest little guy. When he’s not barking his head off at every creature outside the window that is! He’s also a master at finding my just fluffed pillows and curling up on them for a long nap.
