Refreshed Sleeping Quarters
This month marks the end of our second year in the Philadelphia apartment we call home. Having thought from the onset that this space would be temporary, I never put that much thought into decorating our sleeping quarters. All of our entertaining spaces have been decorated for a while now, but the tiny room we lay our heads at night has been thoroughly neglected. Since our current house search is seeming to take longer than anticipated, we've decided to renew our lease and slow things down on the house front. With that in mind, I've finally wrapped my head around decorating our space to make it feel more inline with the rest of the apartment.
Our living area aesthetic is very neutral with crisp white walls and a deep gray trim. Our furniture has a very minimal and streamlined feel with a few industrial touches throughout the space. Since the layout is very open with french doors leading to our bedroom, I wanted there to be a natural transition between the rooms. To accomplish this, I started by painted the walls in Dark Ash by Behr. It plays beautifully off the trim in the adjoining rooms and creates the perfect pop against our all white Malm bedroom set from Ikea.
To round out the space and give it the tranquil feel I've been desiring, I balanced out the dark walls with mostly neutral, soft accessories with a slight feminine undertone. To finish thing off I added a few pieces like this plant holder and lumber pillow to tie in industrial elements throughout the rest of the apartment.
