On this midst of Black Friday inundation on the web, I’m so completely satisfied to offer us all a break and present you a bed room makeover we did for our pal and photographer, Kaitlin Inexperienced. After an in depth Covid rework, Kaitlin and her husband Corey ran out of steam to drag collectively among the rooms, and like many people, we de-prioritize our bedrooms selecting as a substitute to complete the rooms which might be extra guest-facing. It was a white field with leftover starter furnishings. So when Brooklinen reached out for a bedding function we figured it was the right excuse to redo her room (and FAST). And whereas it’s the busiest time of the yr over right here, this got here collectively unusually simply and was a lot enjoyable to embellish, type, and shoot. Teamwork makes the weblog work ????
I would like you to maintain scrolling and see Kaitlin’s lovely 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 properly (Simply look forward to 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 nearly unattainable to place your time/sources in direction of your self, particularly after a draining rework. So that they prioritized the primary residing areas – the kitchen/front room and we’re doing the remainder 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 getting a sample on the partitions. Kaitlin and Corey have nice type – a contact extra protected and modern than mine, and like hotter tones than I often go for (see her basement reveal we did final yr HERE), however I believe I actually get them. With nearly no architectural curiosity within the room, we figured wallpaper was the way in which to go, however with a extra calm sample (the room isn’t huge and once more, they’ve two small children). I pulled out my stash of impartial wallpapers, introduced them over, and nearly instantly we selected this wildflower floral by Kelly Ventura. It’s SO PRETTY.
The wallpaper is hand-drawn (Kelly is unbelievable, please comply with her Instagram for painterly inspiration – it’s one of many few accounts I continuously 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 price range (once more, they only reworked which might be so depleting, belief me). So I used to be ECSTATIC to offer them the present of Brooklinen bedding (when you go Brooklinen it’s laborious to return). There’s a purpose their percale sheets and quilt covers make it on my present 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 they usually have been actually into it, so we added that raisin-colored quilt cowl which is so attractive, and the olive/ochre pillow shams. I’ve emotions about linen bedding typically (there are two varieties 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 possibly 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 really issues with regards 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 front room – the colours are excellent for me. Right here’s my case for a barely patterned sheet – I really like gentle bedding (not completely against darkish, however choose a darker quilt) however vibrant white doesn’t have the longevity that I would like (methinks the self-tanner is the issue, of which I received’t give up), however with a small sample like this the bedding lasts YEARS. I additionally actually like pale tones for that reason.
That inexperienced velvet paneled headboard is soooo good, y’all. With solely a month to provide this makeover, we reached out to a constantly unbelievable furnishings companion, Article, and ordered this headboard, oak mattress body, and nightstands. They got here inside two weeks and are wonderful. 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 peak). It’s such a fairly colour and created sufficient of an announcement/focus 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 supplied 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).

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 properly with the wallpaper (each impartial) being extra graphic in opposition to the smaller floral sample.
The colours all labored so properly collectively, even impressing ourselves ???? Clearly, all our partnerships helped make this doable with our timeline, so an enormous because of, in fact, Brooklinen for partnering on this makeover/publish. And we couldn’t have pulled it off so rapidly with out Article, RugsUSA, and Mattress Tub & Past. Look Mother, we did it!!

It can save you much more by stacking this with their bundle low cost so I’d suggest getting the Hardcore Bedding Bundle which may prevent as much as 40%.

Peeking into her room gave us all numerous pleasure, so we needed to seize it ????
