On this midst of Black Friday inundation on the web, I’m so joyful to offer us all a break and present you a bed room makeover we did for our pal and photographer, Kaitlin Inexperienced. After an intensive Covid transform, Kaitlin and her husband Corey ran out of steam to drag collectively a few of the rooms, and like many people, we de-prioritize our bedrooms selecting as a substitute to complete the rooms which can be extra guest-facing. It was a white field with leftover starter furnishings. So when Brooklinen reached out for a bedding characteristic we figured it was the proper excuse to redo her room (and FAST). And whereas it’s the busiest time of the 12 months over right here, this got here collectively unusually simply and was a lot enjoyable to brighten, fashion, and shoot. Teamwork makes the weblog work 🙂
I need you to maintain scrolling and see Kaitlin’s stunning images (ability buying and selling FTW) however I additionally need you to observe the FULL Webisode on Youtube that Brian shot and Gretchen edited (household teamwork additionally FTW). For these of you who like a shorter-form video, you possibly can watch this one as effectively (Simply await the brief advert to play):
The Room Two Months In the past…
I really feel like this room is so relatable. With two small children, dad and mom are sometimes only a bit exhausted, and it feels virtually unimaginable to place your time/assets in direction of your self, particularly after a draining transform. So that they prioritized the principle dwelling areas – the kitchen/lounge and we’re doing the remaining over time. It’s an actual win/win (we commerce for images).
Leaping Off Level – The Wallpaper
I swear, wallpaper makes adorning simpler since you want a lot much less for the remainder of the room after you have a sample on the partitions. Kaitlin and Corey have nice fashion – a contact extra protected and up to date than mine, and like hotter tones than I often go for (see her basement reveal we did final 12 months HERE), however I believe I actually get them. With virtually no architectural curiosity within the room, we figured wallpaper was the best way to go, however with a extra calm sample (the room isn’t large and once more, they’ve two small children). I pulled out my stash of impartial wallpapers, introduced them over, and virtually instantly we selected this wildflower floral by Kelly Ventura. It’s SO PRETTY.
The wallpaper is hand-drawn (Kelly is unbelievable, please observe her Instagram for painterly inspiration – it’s one of many few accounts I continually present Birdie who desires to be an artist). We then took the colours from the wallpaper and selected the bedding from Brooklinen’s fall line, which labored PERFECTLY.
The Bedding – A Mixture of Percale And Washed Linen
Kaitlin and Corey had by no means prioritized bedding of their funds (once more, they only transformed which will be so depleting, belief me). So I used to be ECSTATIC to offer them the reward of Brooklinen bedding (when you go Brooklinen it’s laborious to return). There’s a motive their percale sheets and cover covers make it on my reward information yearly (and I’ve tried many, I promise). I particularly love a few of their patterns, like these sheets, as a result of they aren’t wild and daring, however simply basic and impartial (with extra curiosity than simply white). I requested them if she wished to combine percale with washed linen after touching it and so they had been actually into it, so we added that raisin-colored cover cowl which is so attractive, and the olive/ochre pillow shams. You already know I’ve emotions about linen bedding basically (there are two forms of individuals – linen bedding lovers and percale bedding lovers), however I had forgotten that not all linen bedding is similar and Brooklinen’s is extraordinarily smooth and cooling. I really feel like perhaps I obtained burned by some less-than-great Goal linen bedding in our visitor room (which is fairly, however only a bit rougher). So the maker actually issues relating to bedding and Brooklinen’s linen shouldn’t be solely attractive, however nonetheless VERY smooth.
We combined in this extraordinarily smooth and fairly throw (LOOK AT THOSE COLORS) which I’m stealing for our vacation lounge – the colours are excellent for me. Right here’s my case for a barely patterned sheet – I like mild bedding (not completely against darkish, however favor a darker cover) however brilliant white doesn’t have the longevity that I need (methinks the self-tanner is the issue, of which I gained’t stop), however with a small sample like this the bedding lasts YEARS. I additionally actually like pale tones because of this.
That inexperienced velvet paneled headboard is soooo good, y’all. With solely a month to supply this makeover, we reached out to a persistently unbelievable furnishings accomplice, Article, and ordered this headboard, oak mattress body, and nightstands. They got here inside two weeks and are glorious. The headboard was put in with a cleat that the panels sit on (you possibly can relaxation it on the ground however we wished extra top). It’s such a reasonably shade and created sufficient of an announcement/point of interest that we didn’t want to hold something above it. The bench is from Mattress Tub & Past and we purchased the sconces from Crate & Barrel.
We didn’t have a ton of house for nightstands due to her closet (and their want for a king-sized mattress), so these offered good storage for being petite, and the sconces freed up the nightstand house.
The opposite facet of the room homes their dresser and often a Body TV above it, however we shot the day after the wallpaper was put in and as a substitute simply leaned a few items of artwork I had in storage (from Crate & Barrel).
Wall Mirror (comparable)
The Rug (AKA The Oberlin From Our RugsUSA Line)
We introduced in the Oberlin rug, a jute and cotton combine which is WAY softer than most jutes and has a pleasant damaged stripe. It paired so effectively with the wallpaper (each impartial) being extra graphic towards the smaller floral sample.
The colours all labored so effectively collectively, even impressing ourselves 🙂 Clearly, all our partnerships helped make this attainable with our timeline, so an enormous because of, after all, Brooklinen for partnering on this makeover/submit. And we couldn’t have pulled it off so shortly with out Article, RugsUSA, and Mattress Tub & Past. Look Mother, we did it!!
Now for the actually excellent news:) Proper now Brooklinen is having their Black Friday Sale and all Brooklinen gadgets are 20% off by way of November twenty ninth. It can save you much more by stacking this with their bundle low cost so I’d suggest getting the Hardcore Bedding Bundle which might prevent as much as 40%.

Peeking into her room gave us all quite a lot of pleasure, so we needed to seize it 🙂
