You know what they say, “If you wait until you’re ready, you’ll never do it.” Or something like that.
We’ve been in our “new” house (otherwise known as the Denver House) for a little over a year and I have yet to show off much, if any, of the hard work we’ve done making our house a home. I already feel more settled and at home living in this house for the past year than I ever did living in our old home for 5 years.
One room that I have been carefully putting together piece by piece to create the perfect oasis is our master bedroom. I wanted to create a bedroom that resembled a luxury hotel room. I love how minimal hotel rooms are. I love the selective decor and cohesive color scheme. I also love the massive amount of pillows and bedding.
The birch tree art hanging over our bed was the inspiration for the color scheme: relaxing aquas with pops of silver and gold. You might remember these bedside lamps looking a little different in our old bedroom. They’ve served their purpose, but I already have 2 bigger lamps awaiting a fresh coat of spray paint in our garage.
For some reason, my eye has been really drawn to shades of blue with our new home decor. I knew I wanted a tufted bedspread and after some careful searching, I found a reasonably priced set online that I fell in love with.
I wanted an obscene amount of pillows on the bed (there can never be too many pillows in my opinion) and this Glaze Sequin Robin’s Egg Blue Decorative Pillow from Annie Selke is the perfect amount of soft glam for our serene bedroom decor. I must be making up for lost time growing up in a bunk bed with just one head pillow.
We already had some great pieces of furniture that I had redone for our old master bedroom that fit very well in our new one. We’re currently using our old bedside tables, but I have plans to paint and redo some new to us thrifted end tables once the weather gets warmer (Minnesota problems). Painting in temps below 65 is impossible 🙁
I prefer more than just lamps on bedside tables. I feel like there needs to be a little something extra. I’m a succulent collector, but I knew real succulents would not survive in our Minnesotan bedroom with not enough sun year round. Luckily faux plants have come a long way and I was able to find some incredibly realistic (in my opinion) faux succulents to “plant” in this Annie Selke Matte Cement Cube.
And what bedroom is complete without a yummy smelling candle? This Linnea’s Lights Moss & Lichen Candle smells DE-LI-COUS and the dual wicks ensure that the candle burns evenly. If there’s anything that drives me crazy, it’s a candle that doesn’t burn down evenly. I’m serious, it drives me batty.
To top it all off, I found this incredibly warm and cozy Pom Pom Robin’s Egg Blue Wool Throw Blanket from Annie Selke. If you haven’t picked up on my subtle hints, Minnesota winters (and sometimes springs) are super cold. There are times when my sheet and comforter aren’t enough to keep me warm at night (OK, I do keep the house at 63 degrees in the winter to save money on utilities, to be fair). There are other times when I want to snuggle in bed during the day (maybe for a midday nap?) after the bed is made. and this wool blanket is perfect for that.
The term “ORGLAMIC” perfectly sums up the style I am aiming for with our master bedroom. Little bit of glam, little bit of organic. This is exactly the style that Annie Selke nails with their 2017 Spring Catalog. View their digital 2017 Spring Catalog here.

Although our master bedroom is still a work in progress…
… I am loving the vibe we’ve got going on already 🙂
