Summer Bedroom Refresh

Hey guys! I'm super excited about today's post because 1. I'm talking about something I love (home decor) and 2. I'm doing a giveaway to a store I love (At Home)!

I've gotten lots and lots of questions from you all about home decor ever since I did this blog post about my living room. So today I teamed up with At Home to share some bedroom decor and host a giveaway. I recently added some fresh accents to my room to give it a new look for summer.  I like to decorate with lots of whites, grays, and metallics and I love mixing textures. I'm always on the lookout for great items at low prices.  Something I've found with decorating my apartment is that it takes a lot of  time and it never really feels finished.  I'm the type of person that wants to knock out a huge project in one day and feel super accomplished but I've had to learn to be patient and be okay with evolving my decor over time.  I know my style will change and my home will change with me. It's a process.  Something I've loved doing is keeping my apartment fresh by switching up accent pieces.  I get bored really easily if something stays the same for a while (hence me chopping my hair off recently). I love my bedding, but lately I wanted to change it up a little. I added some oversized accent pillows with neutral/grey tones and a pop of pink.  I also have been loving big, crystal lamps (thanks to lots of time on Pinterest) and cute bedside flowers. My favorite new addition to my room is the cute little grey bench. It's so cozy and I love the lucite legs that make it feel really modern. The nice thing about all these accents from At Home is that you can totally refresh the look of your room without spending too much money.  They have 500 new items each week so every time I go, there are so many new things to look at.  They have every department you can think of – art and décor, lamps, vases,  furniture, bedding- you name it.

Giveaway!

Okay, so now to the exciting part! I'm giving away 2 $25 giftcards to At Home. All you have to do is share a picture on Instagram with how you're decorating this summer. It could be a picture of fun summertime accents, a cozy reading nook, funky throw pillows- anything! Just Instagram the picture, tag me (@kathleen.post), and hashtag #AtHomeInspired. I'll be picking 2 winners at the end of the month! Have fun and can't wait to see your decor! **Side note: make sure to check here for an At Home store near you. I will be mailing the giftcards but they must be used in stores :)

Headboard

This headboard is a dream.  Really, I've wanted a tufted headboard for so long. I always see them in magazines and those pretty homes on HGTV, but I honestly couldn’t afford one.  I looked on Overstock, discount furniture stores, Wayfair, everywhere! But everything was soooo expensive, or just wasn’t my style.  I found this headboard from The Tufted Frog when I was shopping on Etsy one day. I just searched for "upholstered headboard" (I think) and this came up. The first thing that surprised me was the price! It was so much more affordable than other places I’d seen.  So, I took a look and realized they custom make headboards based off of your specifications.  Like what?! I emailed the seller, Hollie, and she was super helpful.  She explained the process, I would pick the shape of the headboard, the fabric, and any detailing that I wanted. She sent over the shapes I could pick from, but I knew I wanted a standard Oxford, rectangle shape.  I showed her a few inspiration Pictures that I had pinned on Pinterest and I told her that I wanted a cool, grey color.  I wasn't sure which fabric to get but she recommended a velvet fabric because it was super soft, but super durable and easy to care for. I trusted her judgement and decided to go with it. I wanted an extra tall headboard for my king sized bed but I had no idea that they could mail something so big. Apparently, you can! I was SO excited when it came in the mail.  Cort was out of town on business that day and I had a girlfriend over. The nice thing about this headboard is that it's super light weight and I was able to hang it with my girlfriend so easily!  It's safe to say that we are obsessed with this new addition to our room. It completely transforms our space and adds so much dimension and character!   I was amazed at how easy the process was and how everything turned out.  It was nice to be able to get exactly what I wanted without the hassle of shopping around and making sacrifices for price.  If you're in the market for headboards, I would definitely recommend The Tufted Frog.  You can get started on your custom headboard through The Tufted Frog's Etsy shop, Facebook page, or website.  Links below!
