I said I would begin sharing a little bit more of our home starting today and I decided to start with our bedroom. It’s a fairly simple room and I feel like there is room to grow in terms of decor, but I’m also very happy with it. Our kitchen for instance, will not be seen on the blog for quite some time as over the past few weeks I’ve concluded it must be painted white (it’s light yellow now) which will be quite the undertaking.

Our bedroom unintentionally ended up with a blue, white and grey theme. We picked up the bedside table and dresser (and another matching one in a different room) at a thrift store for a steal, but the blue stripes were covered with a country plaid fabric. Lucky for us, when we got them home and removed the fabric, the stripes underneath were a nearly matching light blue to a quilt we already used. It was all tied together with the blue and white bunting from our rehearsal dinner.

My favorite thing in the room is the star chart which I found after being introduced to a similar moon chart by the ever so stylish Honey Kennedy. Shawn and I were particularly pleased that the time frame captured covered both of our birthdays.

I intended to start a small collection of owl and bird art but once I started framing and hanging the pieces I had, it all seemed pretty cramped. I stuck with my three favorite pieces, two vintage book plates and a print I purchased at the last Renegade.

I let this post bleed out a little into our hallway as I think these two sections are the best. As a side note, it’s really difficult to photograph a 40 foot long hallway let alone the things in it. The painting outside our bedroom door as well as the masks are all made by Shawn and have been used in various films that he’s made. I’m glad that these are out on display in our home rather than hidden away in a closet as they once were.

The pink bike was the first road bike I bought for myself, an adorable, very little Schwinn prelude. At some point I converted it to fixed gear making it light and fun to ride around the neighborhood (although she hasn’t been out in awhile to be honest).

I hope to have a few more pieces of our home to share this week, not to mention some of the delicious things I concocted for the dinner party I held this past weekend. If there is anything you would like to know more about in these apartment posts, please do let me know (although I more than likely cover too much detail for the average person).

    I love your bedroom – especially those curtains. And you hallway? Adore the glass mirrors and the floating shelf. Absolutely beautiful! You two have great taste 🙂

    Yay! Thanks for the “sneak peak” I really like the colours in your bedroom. And especially the amount of light in your house. It’s wonderful 🙂 I can’t wait to have a house with a bedroom upstairs again!

      the lighting in our apartment is one of the best things about it. we have lots of south facing windows. major upgrade from our last place which only had a few westward windows.

    I love your star chart! And your bike! (And I think we have the same TV.)

    I like how simple everything is yet so true to you and Shawn. You can really tell your hearts are on the walls and I like that a lot.

    I’ve been meaning to document our apartment because I don’t know how much longer we’ll be here and I don’t want to have forgotten all these little details- especially since this is our first place together. I feel like I have no decorating sense at all but even so I don’t want to forget it.

    Love this and I can’t wait to see the rest. =)

    I am so in love with that bicycle! And I love how cool the colors make your room. I’m a sucker for light, airy, and earthy tones. They just make a room feel so comfortable. I look forward to see what you do with your kitchen! My boyfriend and I are renovating his right now. It’s hard, HARD work, let me tell ya. Especially when you have such a small space.

      yes i don’t think we’ll be doing much renovation in the kitchen, just painting, but even that will be a huge endeavor as there are lots of cabinets that i fear will have to be stripped in some fashion. we fixed some drawers but a lot of the doors don’t close because there is too much paint already. not looking forward to it but i think the end result will be a vast improvement.
