More Bedroom Shennanigans

Nah, don't worry. You don't need to cover your eyes... nothin' to see here, people.

Nothing... except my bedding switcheroo!

Here's a reminder of how my bedding usually looks:

Down comforter in a duvet on the bed, coverlet folded at the bottom; elegant, clean, simple... 195°F in the summer nights. Vom. (That's my new slang for 'blah.' It's so hip, it's so now.)

So while switching the duvet and the coverlet made practical sense, I think it's a great fresh look for the room. I used to be a serial rearranger so it's nice for me to be able to change things up even if the furniture stays in one boring spot.

Plus the new accent pillow introduces a bright pop of color to the otherwise calm room. Every time I see it I can't help but feel happy. Yellow is so fun. It's so hip and so now.

And sleeping the last few nights has been so much more pleasant. I hate to be hot at night, and I admit that I'm a foot-sticker-outer. I just wish I had thought of changing the bedding oh, say... two months ago!

What small changes have you made lately to bring new life into your space?

P.S. Speaking of changes... should I get bangs? They're so hip and so now. I think we can all tell how I feel about hip and now things.

P.P.S. Are you a foot-sticker-outer too? We should be friends.


  1. Love the yellow pop! What color are your bedroom walls?

  2. I am totally a foot-sticker-outer! But, it's usually a last-ditch effort to cool off because I am still afraid that a monster will come and nibble on my toes. I know. It's pathetic. And, you should totally get bangs! They are awesome. =)

  3. I'm an entire-leg-sticker-outer. I'm always too hot at night. Love the new pillow and the coverlet, great idea for the switcheroo.

    Let us know if you get bangs! You're so adventurous :)

  4. Mikalah, I still run up the basement stairs without looking back when the lights are out, so I respect that. ;)

    Katie, I stick my whole leg out too! I'm so glad to find other people like me out there ;)

  5. I'm absolutely a foot sticker-outer. AND i recently cut bangs. I think that makes me two for two.

    we're changing some things in our dining room--just added some typography that's less than perfect (i did it in microsoft word) but i still love it. thinking of painting dining table legs too.

  6. New follower Ranna here.....Hi! I just got bangs last Sat....I instantly feel younger ;0) Go for it!

  7. Bangs are totally so hip, so now... that's why I took the plunge. L.O.V.E. them... You should do it, I dare ya!

  8. Gah! I just might do it... I go back and forth constantly. Talk about major stress ;)

  9. Such simple beautiful changes make everything worth it! Come see the Ferris Bueller chairs.

  10. You sound just like me! I hate being hot at night, so I usually have my foot stuck out, or even my whole leg. You say you're a serial re-arranger? Or maybe you're a recovering one...ummm, me too! And our bedding is very similar, so I do think we should be friends :)

    Come check out my blog at

    I'm your newest follower, just cause I like your style (and you're a foot sticker-outer)

  11. Go for the bangs. So hip and fresh for fall. :) And if you hate them, there are tons of cute hair pins on etsy.

    I've been purging a lot, and just decluttered all my kids' toys so they can't access things willy-nilly. Now, cleanup is a breeze and play is purposeful. Oh, I smell a new blog post.

    {Found you at A to Z}

  12. I have that exact same dandelion fabric and I'm ready to make a pillow cover with it! I'm changing my bedroom to gray, white and yellow to make it brighter and airier! Love your new look!

  13. You're funny! Just found you from A-Z and you made me laugh, so I'm following your antics now!

  14. I am in L.o.V.e. with your head/foot board! The bedding change up is lovely too, clean and simple.

  15. I just found your blog so I'm catching up on old ones. Yes a foot sticker-outer and tonight with my 3 yr old grandson spending the night with me ("I want to sleep in you bed gwamma!") - can you say - a whole-body sticker outer - how can these little ones be SO hot when they sleep?!
    I'm enjoying your style and look forward to your info as well as your wit!

  16. It's very refreshing to redecorate our bedroom once in a while. It keeps our personal "nest" more relaxing to dwell into, unlike the houses from UKessays review who were kept untidy and in a mess.
