I’ve never been one to go all out for Christmas decor. With two little ones, most of our decorations are high up where they can’t be reached. While I do love the coziness of twinkle lights and candles, I haven’t ever invested in loads of decorative items. This year, I pulled out from storage what we had and added it to what was already in the house. Here’s the result.
To add to the coziness, I have 3 albums on repeat. I can’t play Christmas music before December so 3 weeks of nonstop festive tunes works for me!
A few years ago, I listened to a message for married couples about the importance of having a really nice and romantic bedroom. The speaker argued that if we valued our marriage we should invest in our bedroom – a space set aside for one another.
When we moved, I felt super inspired to experiment with a fresh room and thought I’d share the results! We bought a new bed after 10 years of marriage as well as a dresser that wasn’t a hand-me-down or secondhand. I also bought new curtains. The rest of the room is filled with repurposed stuff from other spaces in our old house.
Since Frederick turned 3, I’ve been learning that a little boy room looks quite different than a nursery. Little boy rooms seem to be full of collections.
When we moved I had a really hard time with the oak trim. I had no idea what colors to put on the walls. After a lot of research I decided to paint the bedrooms white and use a lot of color accents. One of my friends thought his room looked very Nordic in style. Here is his room on a really good day – it almost never looks like this!
Last but not least – here is Frederick’s masterpiece. He wanted to hang it on the wall right by his bed, but we found he was playing with it way too much and kept pulling the nail out of the wall so it’s been relegated to the bookshelf.
