Home Suite Home: Master Bedroom

This week in our Home Suite Home series, we are talking about the design of Lauren's Master Bedroom. Here's the floor plan of the room, so you can get an idea.

 Right now, the bed is on the wall with the smaller window, and it butts up against the window, so only one person has a walkway to their side of the bed. I wanted to try to give both people access to their side of the bed, so I'm proposing to put the bed up against the sliding door that they do not use anyways. The curtains will cover this slider and act as a headboard of sorts. Lauren is going to try this configuration and let us all know how it works out :) Here's what I'm thinking:

Here is the design plan for the room. A few simple changes will really bring the room to a new level with some fresh zest. Help Lauren choose her bedding below!

Option ONE:


SOURCESBedding 1white shamsaccent pillow  Bedding 2: printed shams, I Love You pillows / Curtains / Mirror / Lamp

Which one are you leaning towards? Simple, fluffy white with some fun pillows or a elegant patterned duvet with white shams and an accent pillow? Let us know in the comments!

DIY Gold Sequin Pumpkins

This month has been so busy, we haven't had a chance to carve our pumpkins! When I was out yesterday doing some errands, I found a mini pumpkin and some gold sequins I thought would be fun to adorn the pumpkin with. I headed home to create a little DIY ombre glitter pumpkin.

Materials: pumpkin, craft glue (mixed with a little water to spread easier), two sizes of gold sequins.

Step 1: spread your glue and water concoction on the bottom half of the pumpkin.

Step 2: put the larger sequins on the glue. 

Step 3: Add more glue to the next half of the pumpkin and stick your smaller sequins on that portion of the glue.

Viola! There' my only little decorated pumpkin for the year. Have you carved pumpkins yet? I can't believe Halloween is on Friday. I also can't believe there's a chance of snow on Halloween here. Craziness. I'm so not ready for that ;)

Happy Wednesday!

Apartment Update: New Addition to the Bookshelf

This here is my favorite bookshelf in all the land. It's in my living / dining room and it holds books, frames, accessories and a plant. I recently got new bookends, something I desperately needs to better hold up my books, from Brooklyn Thread. They're not just any old bookend, though. These agate stone bookends are intricate, beautiful, and provide texture for the top shelf. I think they add so much interest to my bookshelf! Here are some more peeks:

Brooklyn Thread also sent me this amazing Agate Stone Candle Holder. I put it here on my dress in my bedroom because it is the exact accent color of my room-- berry! I love how it glistens when I light the candle inside the stone. It's just the coolest effect!

I think these pretty gem stone pieces go so well with the flow of the rest of my home. Aren't they lovely?!

Hope you're enjoying your week so far! Happy Tuesday

24th Birthday Wish list

DETAILS | Boots (I asked for them in black!) / Necklace / Lavender AG Jeans / Yellow Ruffled Pullover /  PJ Set / Makeup Bag / Mac Lipstick (Plumful-- cutest color and I need a refill!) / Plum Gel Polish / Plaid Scarf / Apron / Birthday Matches / Three Sisters Bake Cookbook

My birthday is on Saturday, so it's time for my birthday wish list. You know, just incase my family (or boyfriend...cough cough...) need some last minute ideas ;) I know there's a lot on this inspiration board, so don't be thinking I'm getting it all. I really just had fun dreaming of some pretty new things! PS. I can't believe I'm going to be 24. Where has the time gone?!

I may or may not already know I'm getting these boots from my mom! I'm so excited :) Thanks in advance, mom + dad!

I've decided I'm better at baking (and also enjoy it way more) so the Three Sisters Bake cookbook looks so cute!

Lavender jeans...I'm not sure if there's anything more "me".

I need a new makeup bag so badly. Mine is ripping-- I think I've had it for 5 or 6 years now. Any suggestions? I do really love this one shown above!

It's already getting realllll chilly here in Michigan, so a new set of warm PJ's would be a cozy addition to my lounge clothes.

I bought my own shellac/gel nail polish kit at Target a few weeks ago so I could start saving money on manicures. It works so well-- just like when I go to get my nails done, the gel lasts for 2.5-3 weeks! I have my eye on this plum color

Anything else I should add to my list?! Happy Monday, friends!
