Master Bedroom Progress

Oy, guys. Moving is a killer! We were even lucky enough to have my husband’s company do the packing and physical moving of all of home and it was still so much hard work. I went through basically our whole house before we moved to trash/donate anything we didn’t want to take with us then unpacking here has been a challenge with three little helpers hanging around. I’d say we are 90% of the way there but there are just things that I’m not sure where I want them to go! So they lay on our floor or shoved in a closet. I need to get the last 10% organized then I’ll feel a lot more zen. But seriously guys, I just kept telling myself how friggin lucky we were to have his company move us because I know that’s not the case for most. Trust me, I was definitely counting our blessings!

Today I’m mostly going to share pictures of our bed/nightstand set up becauuuuse let’s be honest, it’s about the most put together part of our bedroom. Our room in California literally only fit this furniture (and BARELY that) so we are struggling with the best way to fill the space. I don’t like buying a bunch of junk just to fill a space so I want it to be useful and add purpose, not just look pretty. I’m trying to decide if we should put art above our bed. Let me know your thoughts in the comments, I’d love to hear!  I’m thinking maybe we should do a couple of framed family photos but I’m not married to the idea.

The only thing we’ve gotten so far for this room that we didn’t already own is this amazing rug from Well Woven. The quality is SO good. Way better than I was even anticipating! It lays beautifully and is so soft. I think a good rug can add a lot to a room that is full of plain ole carpet and I’m loving how this one looks with our furniture. Well Woven offered my readers a unique 30% off code and I hope you guys will give them a try because not only is the quality great but the prices are super reasonable too! Just enter powerhouse30 at checkout to get your discount.

We started reading Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone to our oldest guy (he turned 7 in July) and I’m surprised at how much he’s loving it! My husband kind of took over because a) his voices are WAY better than mine and b) I take the younger two and read more kiddie books to them which I love. If you’re thinking about reading it to your kiddos, I recommend this illustrated version, it’s super cute and gives them something to focus on while you read.

This is one of my absolute favorite pieces of art by Caitlin Connolly. She is SO talented. There is so much beauty and meaning behind each piece she creates so I highly recommend checking her out.

I’ll go ahead and link to everything I can below but if I miss anything, just leave it in the comments and I’ll get back to you!

  • Bed (upgraded version here), nighstands (no longer sell exact but most similar here), bedding & euro shams: West Elm
  • Lamps: The Land of Nod
  • Harry Potter book: Amazon
  • Rug:  c/o Well Woven (use powerhouse30 for 30% off!)
  • Set of three off white pillows: handmade my me!
  • Long pillow: Target a while back

Phew, I hope that helps! I’m looking forward to giving you guys more of a detailed tour as we get it together! I’m trying to put a deadline on myself but ya know, life is happening. Like 2/3 of my kids throwing up the first week of school. L-I-F-E. Anyway, leave any questions in the comments and I’ll get back to you!

Frame those photos!

We take so many pictures with our phones always within reach — I’m talking 9,000 photos on my phone right now! Not all of them are gems, of course, but some of them I definitely do not want to get sucked into the cloud abyss. You know what I’m talking about? They go to up into the cloud (whatever that means!) and then I never really look at them again. I’ve been dying to print a few of my favorites and was so excited to try out Framebridge. Their service was SO easy and for a visual person like me, it made the process painless. I could upload my photo or art, pick different frames and it would show me what each one would look like immediately. The printing quality was so good and it came with everything ready to hang! I know this is silly but even the nail was pretty!

For those of us that use Instagram a lot, you can even log into your account and easily select which photos you want printed + framed for around $40! That’s what we did for our kitchen and I love how they turned out. I’m a little addicted now and want to frame all the things.

I had recently purchased these two large prints and was worried about finding the right frame for them. I don’t have a lot of free time so going from store to store printing and looking for frames I loved was just not going to work. Hallelujah for Framebridge coming in and saving the day on this one! Seriously, if it wasn’t for them these would still be sitting in my inbox, I promise. I just uploaded the artwork, picked a frame, and bam! I’m all about convenience these days and when it doesn’t break the bank? Even better.

Framebridge is offering all of my readers 15% off their first purchase with code LITTLEWIFE15 and I highly recommend trying them out! I definitely want to get a few more of my Instagram pictures framed for another room in our house. We’ve been in our rental house for a little over three years and adding pictures of our family just makes it feel a little more like home to us.
