Hi Hart Beat. How are you doing? I’ve been day dreaming about redecorating my apartment lately and have been hooked on my bedroom. Last Spring Pedro and I painted our kitchen to give it a mini makeover. It made all the difference in the world! This year we’re talking about doing another one of the rooms of our apartment and I have my eyes on a few things for our bedroom.
1. A new bed frame. This one from West Elm caught my eye on Pinterest and now I can’t stop thinking about it. West Elm has great shots of the bed in actual people’s apartments and I can’t get over it! The photo up top here was taken by @dabito who’s Instagram is so great I’ve gone down such a rabbit hole of beautiful apartment design photos.
2. New linen sheets from Parachute. I’ve heard different things about the new(ish) addition to the ecommerce order-online-no-store-just-online movement company but what really got me was the post by Stella Blackmon on her Instagram. As soon as I saw those dreamy white sheets I was all oh mamacita set me free. I have this weird thing with sheets where I really prefer white sheets above all else. I think it’s because the seem extra clean? The Parachute linen sheets look amazing and, even better, you can order just a top sheet or just a fitted sheet (more on this to come..) I think about adding a rug to it I found the perfect one, (see one that is similar to it by clicking here) but I haven’t gotten around to getting it yet.
3. New throw pillows. I have these Ikea pillows that I picked up from the old Food52 office and I think it’s time for them to be updated slash they’ve been needed to be updated for years. I have my eye on this stripped one from a favorite store of mine in Greenpoint called Home of the Brave. I think tow of these + white linen sheets + that beautiful bedframe = my dream bedroom.
I’m also considering an iBeani iPad holder for my bed as my friend has recommended them to me. She describes them as another piece of furniture with a technology purpose that is otherwise hidden if you didn’t know what they were, which I think is great. Another thing I’ve been considering is an upgrade to my old vacuum cleaner. A friend gave a good review of her Bissell vacuum cleaner. However, that’s for another day once I’ve got everything else sorted!
