My. Favorite. Part.

The master bedroom is technically done, but since I’m extremely.. particular, I’m waiting to take the final photos until all the little details are in place (Chad, when can we mount the TV?!).

Before I reveal the “after” photos, I thought it’d be fun to share what went into the decorating. I knew I wanted the room to look and feel clean, but in a very soft and cozy way, using linen whites and pale grays. I was originally inspired by these IKEA photos. Almost everything is from there, Amazon, Target, and TJ Maxx. The moral? Don’t shop big or brand names just to the sake of it – buy what you love and what works well in your space. If it happens to be affordable, you’ll love it that much more!

I love Thanksgiving. It’s one of the first real traditions Chad and I have together, which makes me nostalgic. We head out of the city (this year for the last time!) early the day before and spend the night with my parents and his family enjoying some easy takeout and a decent amount of wine. Thanksgiving Day is spent at my sister-in-law’s with a huge crowd and lots of kiddos, which is a little different for me considering I come from a small family, so I absolutely love it.
