Room Refresh // Minimal Bedroom

We’re spinnin’ off of our minimal living room feature from a while back with the bedroom version today! In case you forgot the basics, the key elements to this look are white on top of white, with some beige and wood grain, and more white. But you definitely can add a splash of color here and there if you’re feeling a little saucy. The root of this look focuses on stripping down from the unnecessary, and honing in on the lines and beauty of the individual statement pieces. The best part about this look? Fewer knick-knacks = fewer items for dust to build up on – yayy!

With the warmer weather (hopefully) right around the corner, we’re looking towards cute billowy tops. They’re perfect for spring layering, and the crisp white matches just about anything. It can easily go from day to night with some playing of accessories. We’re loving this guy for it’s flirty layered detail on the bottom, which can also easily be tucked into skirts.

Neutral Kitchens

Pinterest has evoked a new love for us lately, and that’s light and bright kitchens. It’s amazing how much larger and cleaner a space can feel with neutral colored walls.

My current apartment’s kitchen isn’t terribly small, but up until recently, the wall color in there was definitely terrible. The sad dirty yellow had been on those walls for at least ten years, and now that I’ve lived here for two, I was beyond over it. After extensive research, I decided on a “greige“… a blend of a little grey and a little beige. It made an enormous difference, the space feels bigger, brighter, and now I actually want to spend time in there!

The best part about neutral kitchens are that they can come in a variety of colors. You can opt for a bright white to make the light bounce all around, a sophisticated grey, or a nice latte color to warm things up a bit. If you want to get a little more colorful and spunky with it, muted colors work really well also. Think mint or pale pink.

If you’re considering a kitchen overhaul, here are some looks to inspire your redo:
