Time for some more room inspo over at The Mindwelling!! We jumped the gun and finished our closet before our bedroom (Haha, priorities!?) but now we’re working on getting that room all wrapped up and I’m sooooooo happy with how it’s turning out. Thought I’d share some of our inspo, progress and plans with you guys today since I’m not quite done and, well, frankly I need your help on a few things. Haha! HELP ME!
We teamed up with Allswell for this post. They’re a new luxe bedding brand that provides both the mattress and the bedding and I’m alllll about that one-stop-shop situation. So we got mattresses, we got design dilemmas and we got a LOT of pink to talk about. Let’s dive in.
I’m going to talk to you about the mattress first, and the first thing I want to say that’s so awesome about Allswell is it was created by women for women. In fact, the “king” is called a “supreme queen.” BA-BAM. But moreso, it just feels like so much detail was put into every aspect of the brand, from the (pink!) packaging to the interior designers they teamed up with to create their bedding, to the fact that they sell all the basics to put inside the well-designed bedding. And they even take away your old mattress, too. There are great options that fit every aesthetic and it’s such a seamless experience.
The mattress itself comes in two crowd-pleasing options, one a little softer and one a little firmer option. We went with “The Allswell Luxe Classic, Firmer” which combines memory foam and coils. And the top is made from a cooling fabric so it really breathes. We’ve been so happy with it and sleepin’ like babies… when I’m not lying awake like “Hmmm…what am I gonna do with these blank walls??” Speaking of…
Let’s talk about the rest of the room and the fact that I don’t have a single thing on our walls yet. First, here’s some of the pieces we’re working with. Our bed is super structured, so we wanted almost everything else in the room to be soft, in a stark contrast with it. We’re doing a layered rug, a few hits of rattan and a lot of pops of dusty-pink shades. Overall, we wanted the room to be super bright and relaxing so all of these will be popping against our go-to all white base.
Cable Rug | Velvet Chair | Rattan Lampshade
Pink Sconces | Pink Coverlet | Bed Frame
Pink Pillow | Rattan Stool/Night Stand
Pink Vase | Pink Moroccan Rug
But these walls, I just don’t know what to do about ’em. The dresser (which I love) was supposed to go across from the bed with a TV over it but per usual, I measured wrong so it’s a touch too wide. That means it’s hanging out over on this wall where I had intended to do built-in bookshelves. The original wall will still have a TV and likely a gallery wall to help it “blend in.” But now I’m like… what’s my best option here!? I’m thinking a few things… either doing some sort of asymmetrical/shaped shelves above it or just doing one large art piece. Potentially even this large rattan piece (below)!? I really want some sort of shelving here but I’d love to hear your thoughts. Maybe you guys have a genius idea I hadn’t thought of!?
