Our Bedroom ♥

Hello lovelies!

How has your week started? ♥

I'm sort of tired after the weekend, and also because of the grey weather, but hopefully it gets better with exercise, vitamins, and focusing on the good stuff. Also, with the help of my blogger friend Sacramento and her super helpful new post, I was able to finally add a little button on the right side of the blog that takes you back to the top of the page (see the little pink arrow button? That's it.)

Today, I thought it would be fun to show you our bedroom (finally, as we've lived in this apartment over 6 months now) because only last week I got it looking like I want it to look. Before that it felt a little pointless to take photos, even if that could've make it into a cool before/after post. :D

So, here we go, our bedroom:

On our windowsill, there's boxes full of my jewelry. I have a ridiculous amount of accessories, which you probably know already if you have seen my outfit posts, haha.

On our bedroom, you can definitely see the passion for motor sports. I'm still hoping to find a better place for the flag there, but then again it matches our Ferrari pillow, so... It's all good. The Moomin blanket is a graduation gift of mine, and it used to be in the living room, but since I found a perfect grey one there, I moved the Moomin into the bedroom.

My side of the bed; dream catcher, pink stuff, sequined footwear with bows...

I like to keep my everyday perfumes, glass of water, music and a book always in hand. Otherwise, this could be even more neat.

Next to our bedroom door, there's a shelf full of shoes, bags and a couple of hats.

If you have been reading my blog for a while now, I bet most of this looks familiar to you.

I usually stay up longer than my fiance - due to having an evening shift, whereas he needs to get up early in the morning, and because we both hate going sleep alone, I usually end up watching TV on almost mute while he sleeps. That way, my sleeping schedule stays at least somewhat in control.

And, as you might know, I love my boxes. They're such a lovely way of keeping things organized. Here you can also see my new makeup bag (more about that later, though).

On the bed, you saw the pile of pillows. I love the furry ones, which are something I found whilst shopping with my mom last week. And even though four pillows is nice...

...six is even more nice. Before, we had pillows in very weird, different colors (we kind of didn't care, but I reached my limit now, as I do like to hang out in the bedroom) but now, they're more neutral and earthy. Except of course for the Ferrari one, but that's such a different thing.

One more thing to mention about our bedroom is this red heart I created with iron wire and pack of red Christmas lights. It looks kinda cute on the window, and I guess it kind of sends the message of love to everyone who sees it. At least, one can always hope so.

Other little things

I had a long time thinking whether to put these into their own posts, but what the heck. Here are other little details from around our home (and more to come once I can get my hands on a drill).

Set of lights I found for my sewing corner/guest space.

Look at how cute it is, even by the day!

...and this is how it looks by the night.

Luv it.

New set of wine glasses (needing another round of wash here, hehe) - finally we have a matching set of 6 of them!

Starry lights above our living room door.

Cute lantern for the balcony, something I've been dying to find for months now.

...and how it looks with the rest of the candles outside.

Roses & candles, absolutely the best way to make the room look finished. ♥

So clearly I have been into decorating lately. Had I a bigger budget, you'd sure see more posts about decorating. So be patient, some day I really will have a full-time job.

Anyone else out there having a need to redecorate? ♥

Now, I must start cooking something nice for us before I get to work (only two days, and my weekend starts, yay for short week!). But I'll be back as soon as I can. ;)

Have a lovely day!

Blog ya later,

xoxo

  4. Mulla on samanlainen boxi-innostus, jokaiselle tavaralle olisi ihana saada ikioma säilytyspaikkansa. Ja kyllä niillä saa helposti siistimmän vaikutelmankin, kun ei ole ihan kaikki meikit ja korut levällään :) Itseasiassa täälläkin on harrasteltu kodin sisustusta ja järjestystä - ja mikä sattuma, löysin paikallisen Sinooperin alesta kaksi aika samannäköistä turkistyynyä kuin teillä (yht. 12€) ! :D Laukut ja kengät pidän piilossa komerossa mutta makuuhuoneestamme löytyy iso vaaterekki täynnä pelkästään mun vaatteita. Turhamainen kun olen, ja bähän kirppis&ale-hirmu :D Eilen muuten sain keskellä yötä päähänpiston siirtää turhanpanttina / radiopöytänä toimineen työpöydän keittiöstä makuuhuoneen puolelle meikki&korupöydäksi, ja pitääkin ruveta järjestelemään kaikki tavarat laatikoihin.. Itselläkin on osa-aikatyö ja useimmiten iltavuoroa, niin on kivasti aikaa tehdäkin näitä asioita ihan rauhassa :) Aika luksusta, vaikka toki minäkin haluaisin ansaita enemmän. Koti olisi tosiaan sitten siinä vaiheessa ihan toista luokkaa, ja toivottavasti ikiomakin :) Hih, rupee ihan hymyilyttämään mitä samankaltaisuuksia meistä löytyykään ! :D

    1. Thank you love! It's nice to hear it looks put together, as main thing for us is more cozy and homey than really stylish or anything. :D ♥
