I’m super excited to share a little sneak peek into our bedroom redecorating! It will probably be a month or two before it’s fully complete, but I wanted to share some of the sources, in case they sell out.
By far, the element of the room that I’m most excited for is the wallpaper. I decorated the entire room around this gorgeous black and white dalmation print. I searched and searched for the ideal paper for months, and finally came across the perfect one from Chasing Paper. My jaw dropped when I saw it, and I knew this was “the one”. We rent our condo, so temporary paper was a must, and Chasing Paper has the most gorgeous collection of peel-and-stick wallpapers.
My friends who have seen these photos have all asked how easy the paper was to install. Well, overall, it was incredibly easy. The paper comes in 2’x4′ sticker sheets, and you literally peel and stick it to the wall. The first sheet was very tricky for me to install. I had to remove and reapply like 30 times. However, by the 2nd sheet, it seemed to have magically gotten easier. And by the 3rd sheet (and for all of the rest), I applied them perfectly on my first try. They are really easy to install. It was just a matter of learning the technique. The paper has really transformed the room, and I couldn’t be happier.
I installed the paper on one wall in our bedroom. I put our dresser in front of the wall for these photos, however, once our bed arrives, I will put the bed in front of this focal wall. Speaking of our dresser….
….I did a little IKEA hack for our dresser (which I will be replicating on our nightstands). I found this website, called O’verlays, which makes trim for IKEA furniture. It was super easy to glue onto the IKEA Hemnes dresser drawers. I added some brass CB2 hexagon knobs, and voilà!
I picked up all of the art from Minted, and these will most likely end up on the picture ledges we installed over our living room sofa. I also immediately fell in love with the beautiful shade of turquoise in our rug from RugsUSA. I purchased almost all of our rugs from RugsUSA, as the prices and selection can’t be beat. If you live in Canada, Rugs.ca also has some great rugs and fantastic prices.

I hope you enjoyed this little sneak peek into our bedroom. Later this week, I’ll be posting our dining nook, and early next week, I’ll share a portion of our living room. After 4 long months of decorating and making more decisions than I can count, it’s all finally starting to come together!
