The Bedroom’s Mini-Makeover

Coral & Gray, with Black & White Details

The bedroom is looking a bit different these days. The shell of the room is the same. Same charcoal gray walls, same layout, same bed. All the furniture is the same, actually. The only changes have been the bed linens and the botanical print from the living room.

I’m not sure how much longer we’ll be able to keep the lighting fixture in the room. Both kids want to swing from it.

The book situation, as usual, is a little out of hand. The bookshelf is starting to see books stacked two deep, and Brandon and I each have stacks on top of, underneath, and to the sides of our bedside tables. The library bookshelves are already full though.

The black and white pillows and throw were from IKEA, and the coral bedding was from west elm. Little changes (only a mini-makeover, remember), but I love the look.

    I’m so glad I stumbled on this! I am working on a “forced” bedroom re-do right now (the wall was literally falling in ;-) and decided on gray before I saw this. Love it! Looks terrific. The plan so far is white and black accents with a couple shots of magenta for pop. Wish me luck! BTW What shade is your gray? See my “before” wall here:

    I live in an eency weency space and have tons of books myself, mostly art, photography, architecture coffee table books, oodles of fiction, and sundry non-fiction. Your book situation looks like mine. It’s time for double duty furniture. I have hollow ottomans full of books, for example. The list goes on. I think every major furniture designer and design house has some variation.
