I’m a firm believer that bedrooms should be simple and serene. Ours doesn’t have a TV (though watching movies in a hotel bed is one of my favorite things ever), the walls are Benjamin Moore’s “Pelican Gray,” our bedding is all white (available here), and we try to keep our bedside tables as uncluttered as possible. But up until recently, the room felt unfinished and cold. I’d been searching for a headboard for ages (I even created a Pinterest board with all of my inspirations) and finally decided on one that felt right. It’s tall, plush, and the subdued yellow is a nice touch of color in an otherwise neutral space. There’s still a lot left to do until the room will feel complete – like tracking down a cozy rug, reupholstering our bench, and finding new bedside tables, but at least it’s a step in the right direction.
