As often happens with dramatic overhauls, my bedroom reboot started with one piece. Over the summer I had the succulent poster I co-designed with Leah Duncan framed to hang over my bedside table. Problem was, the color palette wasn’t jiving with anything else in the room. We were overdue for new bedding and accessories anyway, so I did a revamp using black, white, gray, and pops of yellow and turquoise.
Below is my side of the bed. We already had the Heywood-Wakefield furniture and vintage ceramic lamp. I’d been wanting a tray so I can set down my earrings, ponytail holder, etc. before I hit the pillow. I styled it with a mini blush planter by Sea & Asters and brought over a Kostick bronze star sculpture from the living room. Geometric patterns to contrast with the botanical art were a must, so I chose a Pendleton wool lumbar pillow from Robin Cottage. The gray braided duvet cover and shams are from West Elm, and the yellow Sketch Grid pillowcases are Room Essentials from Target.
Below is Andrea’s turf. The two bedsides used to be mirror images, so I wanted to play with asymmetry by giving him an art cluster and a different lamp. The bird print is his own photograph, hung with gold gem magnets by Lynn Lunger (aka Una Odd). The Minerals print at top right is by Happy Red Fish, and The Last Summer is a painting reproduction by Kiki and Polly. The hanging planter is by ceramist Cathy Terepocki.

I originally bought this vintage Navajo rug for the home office. It was too small for that space, and it was being used as a doggie hangout. I think the colors are a better fit for the bedroom, and hanging it keeps the dirty paws off. I found the midcentury chair at Paris on Ponce in Atlanta and changed the original vinyl upholstery to this cream boucle. (I should gaze at this photo daily to remind me what the chair looks like without the pile of sweat pants.) I think the bentwood magazine holder is from Design Within Reach, but I no longer see it on their site. The oatmeal sweater rug is from West Elm.
Below is my jewelry armoire, where I’ve begun gathering my most-worn accessories with a ’50s McCoy planter and a jadeite hand. I pillaged the vintage oil painting from our office.
Here’s our built-in steel chest of drawers. I re-covered my vintage vanity chair with screen-printed Ladders fabric by Appetite.
My first few mornings waking up surrounded by new art and crafts have given me a boost of energy to take on the holiday season. I hope my picks inspire you to refresh a room, too! I gathered up some product info for you below.
