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.

    El says:

    Hi! I love the picture above your bed and the colorful pillows, where did you buy them from?

    Christi says:

    How would you say this mattress is comfort-wise compared to a regular memory foam (like Serta or Tempur-pedic)? I’m considering one for a tiny house I am moving into, and am having a hard time with the idea of giving up my Serta iComfort. 🙂 Your room looks lovely~ a wonderful place to dream.

    designlovefest says:

    hey christi, the mattress i had before this was a pillow top so i can’t really speak to other memory foam mattresses but i really like this one. it’s supportive without being too firm, and you also don’t get that sinking in feeling that some memory form mattress have that i don’t like. and it’s such a reasonable price compared to those other brands and such an easy delivery process!

    Emily Moore says:

    Where did you get your pillows? i love them!

    Keep up the exceptional work !! Lovin’ it!|

    Chance says:

    I LOVE the gray walls, do you know what color is it??

    Alex says:

    Can you tell us where the pillows are from and can be purchased?

    Vicky says:

    Beautiful! Can I ask what your wall color is? Thanks!

    designlovefest says:

    hey vicky!

    unfortunately we don’t know the color. it was painted this way when bri moved in.


    Margo says:


    I was wondering if you know how your contractor tackled the job of the closet doors. I have a similar closet that is really wide and tall, so typical standard closet doors don’t work. When I moved into my house, there was a system of 3 door panels on 2 tracks, and it was always impossible to access the full part of the middle section, due to this. I ended up taking out the middle panel, but would eventually like to come up with something nicer.

    So, from the pictures, it looks like there isn’t a track on the bottom of the doors. Is that correct? Does that mean he hung them like barn doors? Do you have any more information into that aspect of the doors? Are you using 2 tracks on top (which is what it looks like) or 3? It looks as if you wouldn’t be able to slide the two larger panels on the left and right all the way to access the main parts of the closet, but obviously that can’t be correct because you wouldn’t have designed a closet that doesn’t work. 🙂

    Any additional information or pictures would be super helpful. Thank you!

    Emily E Chatburn says:

    Hello! Did you find any more information about how the doors were built? I came across this photo and would love to try to replicate it in my home as well!

    Laura says:

    Hi do you happen to know where the print hanging above the bed is from? Thank you!

    Jill Gully says:

    Do you mind sharing the name of the contractor with whom you worked to build your closet doors? Thx.

    Christina says:

    Hi yes! Are you able to share who your contractor was? Thank you!
