Our sweet friends and family in Dallas held the most special engagement party for Jase and I about three years ago, and there was one piece of advice that my best friend’s mom imparted to me as a wife-to-be. I will never forget it. She said to always make your home a sanctuary and restful place for your husband; it should always be an atmosphere that brings peace and comfort after a long and possibly stressful work day.
Decorating our first home together has been everything from a test of patience (it’s a long process) to one of the most rewarding experiences. It was exciting yet nerve racking to create the vision for our home – it is such a big and permanent type of project that messing up or choosing the wrong piece is yikes! From trial and error, I have learned so much from what piece of furniture to start with in the design process to watching how my interior style has evolved over the last two years – it is fun to already become inspired for the interior of the next home in our future!
Enter the master bedroom. This room can be a tough cookie, right? It has to be the perfect mix of masculine and feminine. I had to let go of my desire to have pretty, feminine Bella Notte pillows and a velvet throw. Exit any floral patterns. So I came to a conclusion: neutrals and white is a clean way to create comfort. It’s cozy + the simple palette creates an easy foundation to add in different throw colors and patterns as the seasons change.
I have my list of top favorite online interior shops, and my first stop is always Serena and Lily. It never fails to deliver and inspire. This last month, we decided to get a new set of bedding. There is truly nothing like it! Not to mention, we might have a slight obsession with this duvet cover – one is in our master; one is in the upstairs guest! We also can’t live without puffy shams and pillows! Everyone wants a bed that feels like a cloud, right? See below for our entire set of bedding.
