As I mentioned in this post, I wanted to furnish my bedroom first at the new house. I already had a pretty good idea of the direction I wanted to go, so I ordered this bed, dresser and these lamps back in August! Naturally, I received the lamps first. The dresser came a few weeks later, as did the bed. The first bed arrived damaged (there was a shipping mishap – looked like a forklift was to blame as the box was severely damaged too!), so I rejected it and asked for a replacement to be sent. They told me the replacement wouldn’t be available until at least the end of November, so you can imagine my surprise when I got a notification it would be delivered last week!! Needless to say, I was thrilled! This delivery went off without a hitch, and the bed was assembled in no time. I love this bed so so much! I love the clean lines and sleek look of it, but the fabric headboard ensures comfort too. Plus, the linen fabric on the headboard matches the dresser *perfectly*.
These side tables were my grandmother’s, which I plan to use in another room. While I love them, I think I’ll want more storage for my bedside tables. They’re a great placeholder for now, though! And I honestly love the round table look next to my bed – I think it’s a nice way to offset all of the right angles. With that in mind, I’m searching for a pair of nightstands that feature a curved look – something not so boxy! Over the weekend, my floor mirror from Restoration Hardware also got delivered! It is enormous, which is exactly what I was hoping for. I have ten foot ceilings, and this beauty is 7 1/2 feet tall! Because my lamps and bed are black, I thought a gilded mirror would be a good way to brighten the space and pull the gold details from the lamps and future drapery hardware together. I originally thought I wanted this one, but prefer the streamlined look of the arched mirror I purchased.
I have yet to order a rug, but I do have one on my list… this one to be exact! I ordered a runner version of it just to see if I liked the colors, and it looked amazing with the dresser/lamp combo I have. It’s currently out of stock in the size I need, but I chatted with a store associate and they said it would be restocked in the next month or so. Going to keep my eye on it! Just hoping I can snag it before it sells out again… otherwise I might have to keep looking. After that, all I will need is a pair of nightstands, bedding and little things to style throughout the space (art, books, flowers, etc)! I love how this space has come together, and so quickly. With all of the COVID-19 shipping delays, I figured it would be months before I could get it furnished!
