If you read my previous “Updating Your Apartment” blog then you know we added a great accent wall in our home with this Anewall Removeable Wallpaper. After adding that it became real easy to see, that our current furniture just wasn’t cutting it. Which to be honest the furniture we had were really just hand me downs from both of our previous places, nothing matching or even same color so it was time to do a refresh anyways. I wanted the furniture to be modern & current in style while also being something that would last us a long time. It needed to match the current room decor but also easily work with other rooms or colors if we moved in the future. I ran across AmeriwoodHome Furniture on Instagram and was really impressed with the styles they offered & the price. Except for a few pieces, our entire bedroom suite is AmeriwoodHome & I couldn’t be happier with how it turned out!
I decided to go with a gray oak for our dressers & nightstand because I knew this would go with many other colors/decor. You know the color gray is the new go-to for house coloring. They used to say go with an eggshell like color when choosing paint colors etc for a home but now it’s gray. Gray is a great universal color that will go with dark or light colors. As you can kinda see from the photos above, the gray oak we chose looks different shades in different lighting. Both the tall dresser & nightstands are completely the same color but since one photo was taken early in the day versus the evening, you can see the extra lighting really pulls the gray whereas the nightstand photo pulls more light brown. I LOVE THAT!! It’s a perfect example of why this would go so well with different bedroom colors. We chose the Bassinger design from Ameriwood since it’s a bit of a rustic look but in my opinion still really modern. It will go with whatever style I choose for our next place, or change later on here.
I do love the Bassinger Bedroom Suite we added, but my new “home office” is definitely my favorite thing of all in the room. I’ve wanted a work space at home for so long & I honestly never thought about putting it in the master bedroom. I kinda always had in my mind, you had to have an extra room for an office. Boy was I wrong! AmeriwoodHome has some of the cutest desks in all different sizes, that would fit perfect in a bedroom. I’ve turned this simple corner of our room into this beautiful work space for mama! I’M OBSESSED!!!! And of course to go with the color of furniture in bedroom, I chose the Landon Desk in gray oak so it matches the rest perfect. I bought a chair from amazon, some wall art from Kirklands, and viola….I have a home office 😎 seriously makes the room pull together so well too!
Really the only piece of furniture we added to our bedroom that isn’t from AmerwioodHome is this bench at the end of the bed. The bench is from Jane.com & it’s become a perfect put your shoes on spot, fold laundry on, and Cora’s way to climb on the bed. Which unfortunately is also the place she slipped & busted her lip on last weekend 😥 Besides from this mishap, I love the bench here though!
Whether you’re moving or just wanting to update your bedroom, switching up your furniture is a great way to do that. Ever since we added the accent wall, new furniture, and my desk our bedroom has become a completely different room. I’m so happy with how it turned out!!
