{Decor} Our San Francisco Bedroom

Its definitely still a work in progress, but Gwyneth and I made some good headway on decorating the bedroom in our San Francisco apartment this past weekend! (If youre catching up, heres where you can check out the entryway, living room and kitchen.) There are so many things we love about our new space, but that our bedroom is its own separate room (with a door!) tops the list! That we cant see the dishes in the sink from the bed already makes it feel like a true retreat!

Youll notice that most of the things were using in the space are things from our NYC Apartment, but we did make a few changes and added a few new elements. Paint is our favorite way to make a quick change on a budget, so we decided to paint the walls a lighter shade of our favorite color. We settled on Sherwin Williams Alyssum.

Bedroom With Pink Walls

While we were in the business of man repelling, we decided to add a few more decorative pillows to the bed the five we had before just didnt feel sufficient. So we added our DIY Dorothy Perkins Cross-Stitch Pillow in front and an oversized blue floral lumbar pillow behind the bolster. The blue floral lumbar was something we made when we were on vacation in North Carolina the week before we moved to San Francisco. Were missing borrowing my Moms sewing machine, and a Bernina is at the top of this years Christmas list. Come New Years, the pillow count count definitely rise!

Bedroom Pillows

Were using our Dumpster Dive Chest of Drawers from NYC as a nightstand and are in love with the new set up thanks to a few housewarming gifts we received last week. Thank you, Mom for the beautiful Audrey Frameless Mirror from Ballard Designs and for the Let Them Eat Cake vase from Anthropologie!

If theres a piece of furniture that has nine lives, it would be our Dumpster Dive Dresser and Hutch. We originally used it in the bedroom in NYC, then we updated the panels with My Overlays for our home office in North Carolina, and now its back in the bedroom. Since were using it to store items like undergarments, socks and tights, we decided to add white craft paper behind each of the panels. Athletic socks just werent the decorative touch we were going for here!

Unlike our Dumpster Dive Dresser, theres one piece of furniture that has not been very functional for us so far Gwyneths Jax and Bones dogbed. Since Gwyneth gets to come to work with me here, we decided to take her old bed to the office and pick up a new one for home. Unfortunately, shes not making the most of it right now

Gwyneth says shes much more comfortable up here. Must be all the pillows.

Thats the bedroom for now! Were saving our pennies and hoping to add the York Tufted Headboard from Pottery Barn soon!

Update: We purchased our headboard and are so in love with how it works in our space!

      Andi, thank you! Were trying to switch things up and not just recreate the same apartment as we had in NYC. Its a challenge, but were having a lot of fun trying to sort it out! Hope you enjoyed your trip and stayed warm!

  6. I love it! I also am surprised you would not craft up your own tufted headboard! You are so talented!

    • Meredith & Gwyneth says:

      Hi Hannah! We thought about it, for sure! But we were so in love with the Pottery Barn one that we were scared wed never stop thinking about it if we went another route. Plus, we have a DIY list a mile long! Thank you so much for stopping by and taking the time to leave such a sweet comment!

  7. Love the bedroom. Very pretty and remember its Gwyneth that allows you up on that big bed. ;)

  8. Gwyneth gets to come to work with you? Squee!!!! We need a Gwyneths Day at the Office post, pronto!

    • Meredith & Gwyneth says:

      Well have to add that to our calendar. It would definitely be entertaining! When shes not sleeping, shes going desk by desk, asking for treats or dropping her ball for someone to throw to her (while theyre in the middle of a conference call!)

  9. Things are really coming together. Love all the pink touches! (Especially your front door.)

    And I absolutely MUST get that totally cool Let Them Eat Cake vase. (Anthropologie, here I come!)

    • Meredith & Gwyneth says:

      Thank you! We think your new sew Roman shades would be a really great addition behind our curtain panels! LOVE that tutorial and have it pinned for use in the very near future!
