#refresh: Bedroom Edition

PHEW! P and I are finally starting to dig out from under the pile of work that was created when our company was recently acquired and let me tell you... it's GLORIOUS to feel bored again! I never thought I'd say that, but MAAANNNN is it good to see the your to-do list shrink to one page instead of 14 (SRSLY, we counted mine... WOOF). Now that I have some time to focus on the lovelier things around me, I'm thinking my next project will be a bedroom refresh! We recently signed on for another year in our apartment so I'm thinking an update is just what the doctor ordered for our humble little flat. 

West Elm, one of my FAVORITE sources of home goods, is having an awesome stockroom sale and a bedding set that I've had my eye on finally dropped in price so I've just swiped it up and I'm going to use it as a starting point. 

It's a little different for me. I'm usually organic modern/neutrals kinda lady (Exhibit A: my all black and gray wardrobe) but this set just caught my eye for some reason and I couldn't get it out of my head.

I'm still playing around with some ideas, but an little inspiration board project is helping me narrow things down. I'm thinking a few of my favorite photos I've taken in Charleston will be just the ticket to tide us over until we move back and a few lovely pieces I've picked up in random places will add just the right amount of quirk that will really make it feel like home. 

How about you? Home projects on your mind lately? Several of our friends have just purchased new homes and while we've pretty much settled on where we'll purchase ours, we're giving our careers another year to ripen up before we make the big move. What are you favorite brands? Stores? I'd love to hear!
