I was explaining to a girlfriend this afternoon that I am itching to do a DIY/Home project. I know our bathroom renovation is off the list for a while (tears were shed writing that sentence) and I’m pretty happy with Ava’s bedroom and playroom.. so.. the next item on the list is our bedroom. I am so embarrassed to even show you a picture as it is so plain. I have nothing on the walls except a cardboard deer head and our bed is so large we actually have floating bedside tables (we have a king sized bed in a room suitable for a queen). Oh, and one of those bedside tables was broken a few months ago so it’s currently propped up by books and an empty plant stand… yes.. it’s as ridiculous as it sounds. Funny side story- If I record any insta stories in our room I have to purposely make sure I never film near our door so the public never sees my broken side table.. haha.. My dad is a carpenter and we have literally put up with this broken side table for MONTHS.. like more months than I can remember so that’s super awkward and sad..
Anyways.. considering we feel insanely blessed to even have a home I put together an inspiration board that isn’t going to cost a fortune. I’m talking artificial plants and a floating shelf. I kind of love the idea!
Floating Shelf- 1 & 2 | Drooping Plants- 1 & 2 | Blue Walls- 1 & 2
I felt like I needed to do a roundup of artificial plants as well as there is no way I am putting real plants in our room- bugs, having to replace them every month.. it’s not happening. All of the below are less than $30 each. Some are as cheap as $4.95!

When Greg and I first bought our townhouse we knew we needed to cosmetically update the house- I’m talking brown walls, ceiling fans, brown tiles.. the whole lot.. Apparently the lady who lived in our house prior to us purchasing was a police officer so my guess is that she didn’t spend much time at home..
The number one priority on our renovation list though was our bathroom. I’m not sure why I use the word “was” because it’s still on this invisible list. I was promised a bathroom renovation from my husband 3 years ago.. I am still waiting.. I need Bryan from ‘Leave it to Bryan’ to come to our house.. that’s the only way I can foresee our bathroom being renovated.. anyways.. next on the list was our bedroom.
We fixed the paint colour, ceiling lights etc but now we have a very plain, simple room. It’s functional so no issues, but there really isn’t any life in it. I’m torn between wanting to paint a royal blue feature wall and keeping the white walls. The below two feature walls are from Rebecca Judd loves and Apartment Therapy.
Scandi is definitely my go-to when it comes to decorating. If you have seen our house you will know this is true. A young baby has not stopped me from relishing in white walls (check back with me when Ava is a toddler…)
Below is my bedroom inspiration if we kept the white walls and went down the Scandi(ish) road..
One- Den Armchair | Two- Sorrento Quilt Cover Set | Three- Stockholm Mirror | Four- Finley Bedside Table | Five- Fiddle Tree Plant | Six- Kaiser Throw | Seven- Faux Fur Cushion
