i always have a hard time actually FINISHING a room. i move in, get 1 or 2 new things and then just stop there. with this house, i am making an effort to polish the rooms with the details at the end. hang the pictures, get a new mattress (mine was yeeeears old), update your bedding, install new closet doors, hang the pendant light, paint the walls…it’s a slow process but feels really satisfying once it’s done!
have you heard of leesa mattresses? it’s so cool that you can order it to your doorstep in a small box, unwrap, and it expands right in front of your eyes. verrrrry easy and also ideal for small spaces. i also like that even though it’s covered up by sheets, the pretty grey and white stripes are on there. i appreciate those design details. not to mention it’s comfortable and gives me a more even sleep position instead of rolling into the middle of my mattress every night!
try the mattress out for 100 days and return it without any hassle if you aren’t into it! and they’ll take it back with ease, without a whole laundry list of rules you have to follow to get your money back. use the promo code DLF for $75 off your purchase if you’re interested in trying it yourself.
another detail i added are my new wooden closet doors with gold handles (shop here). i worked with a contractor to build the new doors. there were those ikea sliding fabric panels when i moved in, and i wasn’t really a fan of the color and how masculine they felt. i wanted something easy on the eyes and a little more unique than just white doors. i’m really into the raw wood look in decor right now, so i just went for it. i love how they look with the new light too (from ikea!) i added a wood trim at the top to cover up the track and keep it clean.
there are a few more things i want to do in the bedroom before it’s fully finished, but it’s getting there!!
