Thanks to Universal Furniture for partnering on this post! As always all opinions are my own.
I’m so excited to finally share with you our bedroom reveal on the blog!! I’ve been waiting to share all of the details, since I’ve been adding and removing things to get it just right since we moved in 6 months ago. If you’ve been following along with the planning and building process over on Instagram, you know that this room was one of the first done both in the planning stages and when we moved in January 2021.
I definitely knew right from the get-go that I wanted a light & bright room with all whites and neutrals. I’m completely in love with the aesthetic of the Surfrider Hotel in Malibu, so I had big plans to make our new room have the same vibes, that way it always felt like we were always on vacation. We spend so much time running around with the demands of life, our bedroom should be a place where we retreat and can find respite.
As you all know, we live in a traditionally coastal town (I see you, Charleston!), but I’m not necessarily into that classic beach decor. I’m more of a cross between Pure Salt Interiors meets Amber Interiors or Studio McGee meets Becki Owens. Also a big fan of the newcomers, Morris and James interiors – gah! be sure to check them out.
Last summer, I created design boards for each room of the new house and for our bedroom these were the top 3 images that I consistently looked to when choosing the furniture pieces and layout for this space. The bed was clearly a no brainer. I wanted a king canopy in a natural white washed wood with an upholstered back. You would think it would be fairly easy finding something as beautiful as that, but I searched high & low before I found it at a well known furniture store in Florida that carried exactly what I was looking for at a reasonable price. Most of what I was seeing were THOUSANDS of dollars. (Think above 3k.) Ours was under $1500 including the freight shipping. I really took a chance on it, since there was no way to see it in person (the closest showroom was over 6 hours away), but for the price and my extensive research, it seemed like I won the lottery on this one. This same exact bed retails occasionally on Joss and Main for well over $3000 and is always sold out. As you can imagine, at this point I’m pretty convinced that this bed found me!
side note: I also picked up our outdoor cement dining table from the same store for $500, but we’ll save the details on that for another day when we do the outdoor space reveal.
This Gala mirror from McGee & Co. is a complete show-stopper! I’ve never paid this much for a mirror, but our last one we owned for over 8 years and I think we got it from Ikea. We passed it down to a good friend, so I still get to see it occasionally. 😉 It also taught me something important and that’s a good floor mirror will last, so in a way, it’s definitely worth finding one you love. It can make such a huge statement and you can work it into your room design as if it’s another piece of furniture. Mirrors in general do wonders for bouncing light around the space and help to make your space feel brighter and larger.
Loloi Rugs sponsored this rug and I thought it brought the perfect texture to the space. This is from their collaborative line with Justina Blakeney from the Jungalow. It is kind of hard to track down right now, but thankfully I was able find it for you here on Bellacor. The pictures really don’t do it justice since it’s so pretty in person and it has a bit of the neutral sandy tones that run throughout.
Let’s pause for a minute. You guysss, I’ve never had bed-side tables that were this grown up!! Our nightstands are part of the Miranda Kerr Love.Joy.Bliss. collection from Universal Furniture. This entire collection is so chic and sophisticated and BEAUTIFUL. Each piece is of pristine quality and are solid heirlooms. I fell in love with the Chelsea Nightstand’s beautiful Alabaster finish, stylish soft gold hardware, and the pull-out shelf that allows for additional surface area. The color reads a little more grey in the photos, but I would say it’s more of a cooler white tone with a wood grain that peeps through in some spots. The table lamps were from West Elm, but are no longer on their site. I really thought I’d love them more than I do, so I linked some other great options below.
Our bedding is a mix of Luxhome – we love their bamboo sheets and weighted blanket! – and our linen duvet from Anthropologie. Unfortunately, neither can be linked. The printed shams and fringe blanket at the end of the bed are both Serena and Lily that we reused from our old setup. I’m on the hunt for some amazing printed throw pillows to bring a little bit of pop to the all white bedding, but I haven’t come across anything I really love yet. I guess this will do for now!
Our sitting area is another low-key proud moment for me. The curved upholstered swivel chairs were $250 each during Black Friday. The price has since gone up, but I still think they’re still budget-friendly for what they are. The quality of these chairs blew me away for the cost! They could absolutely be mistaken for $1000 chairs in the right boutique shop. The fabric is a textured chenille in the most gorgeous ivory color and I purchased two matching embroidered lumbar pillows from the Target Hearth & Hand line while they were on clearance last fall. I think my absolute favorite item in this little nook is the arched rattan floor lamp. It brings me so much joy with the design and function it adds to this otherwise lost corner. I also layered a faux sheepskin from Costco and a small Studio McGee for Threshold end table to round out the space.
The dresser, like the nightstands, is also from the Miranda Kerr Love.Joy.Bliss. collection from Universal Furniture (like our nightstands). What I love about this collection is how it incorporates subtle, feminine finishing touches into clean, modern silhouettes. I’m obsessed with the Chelsea Dresser’s subtle curvature (drool worthy!), Alabaster finish, and modern hexagonal soft gold hardware. Just look at how pretty she is, y’all! I still haven’t stopped staring at this exact spot since January. Can you blame me?! I recycled the smaller Minted art from our previous master bath and did a little DIY framing project with the abstract piece. The art print is another one from Minted, but they didn’t offer a frame that I thought would fit well in here, so I ended up purchasing art from HomeGoods for the frame w/ mat and just placed in my print. The picture light was the cherry on top for only 20 bucks on Amazon.
And last but not least, the accessories – these are things I just sporadically picked up while shopping for the new house while we were building. I made a conscious effort to only grab things that I really loved and stored them without any real plan for where they’d end up. I knew we had a ton of rooms to accessorize, so it wasn’t an issue. I picked up the decorative vases at HM.com and if you know anything about H&M, you know you have to act quick when you see something good. Unfortunately, they’re currently out of stock. Our ceiling fan is the Wrap by Fanimation in Natural/Brushed Nickel. The other accessories throughout the bedroom are linked below:
So, I think I was able to link everything I could for you that is shown in our bedroom and I hope that you love them as much as we do! This post does contain affiliate links, which does not cost anything extra for you to shop through them. I appreciate your continued support of our family/brand and I thank you from the bottom of my heart!
