We made a huge amount of progress in the bed and bath over the last week, so much so, that we’re now pulling our favorite hoodies out of a real, live closet. You guys, we have a bedroom closet for the first time in three years! And, and! All of our hair goos, toothbrushes, face potions and…

      Hi Colleen, I wish I could sew pretty roman shades! They’re from Bali Blinds, and we wrote more about them over on the Bali blog:

brass sconces

A long, long time ago, we picked up a pair of sconces from a pop-up warehouse sale. We set them aside, even noting in this blog post of yore that they’ll eventually make their way into our bedroom – just a pipe dream in 2014! (As if anyone needed further proof that these renovations don’t…
  • Arielle - April 6, 2016 - 7:19 AM

    • Kim - April 6, 2016 - 9:52 AM

  • Antonella - April 6, 2016 - 8:12 AM

    Your bedroom renovation is amazing and eerily similar to the direction I want mine to go!
    Your lamps are stunning and I’m looking for something similar to no avail (apparently in Italy this kind of vintage is either non existent or goes for $$$$). Do you find that the black inside of the lamps doesn’t affect the lighting for your reading? I’m really curious…

    all the best from MilanReplyCancel

    • Kim - April 6, 2016 - 9:51 AM

      Hello to Milan from Chicago! The black doesn’t bother us at all, in fact, we think it’s really perfect for low light bedroom reading! And we got really lucky with these sconces. I think because they aren’t solid brass, we were able to get them for a steal.ReplyCancel

  • Laura @ Rather Square - April 6, 2016 - 8:59 AM

    Really pretty! Does the matte black interior keep the light pretty dim?ReplyCancel

    • Kim - April 6, 2016 - 9:10 AM

      It doesn’t seem to change the brightness one way or another, although I’m sure it soaks up the reflection that would have been there had we left the mirror finish. For the bedroom, it’s perfect. :)ReplyCancel

  • jannike - April 6, 2016 - 9:12 AM

    love the “new” sconces, the curve goes so perfectly with your headboard. I would go for a row of smaller pictures above the bed, starting and ending above the sconces.ReplyCancel

    • Kim - April 6, 2016 - 9:50 AM

      That could be cool. It would make for nice repetition! I guess this would also depend on what we put on the other side of the room so we don’t have too many things on the walls. Thank you for the suggestion!ReplyCancel

  • Kari - April 6, 2016 - 9:21 AM

    I love this! The room is shaping up so nicely, I can’t wait to see more! As for above the headboard, I say let it go bare. Those beautiful triple half circles point upward without being sharp and balance each other perfectly. A square object (or many) would stop the visual line. It’s hard to know what a room truly looks like through cropped photos, but to me, that wall looks perfect as is.ReplyCancel

    • Kim - April 6, 2016 - 9:44 AM

      We do like the breathing room above the bed, but we keep feeling torn on if it’s TOO large and bare. I like your point of the triple half circles. Thank you!ReplyCancel

      • Haley - April 19, 2016 - 1:02 PM

        Love the triple half circles. I’m curious to see what something framed would look like above it. This might be a good spot for a wall hanging (and let it go behind the headboard) if that’s the kind of thing you like.ReplyCancel

  • Ryan - April 6, 2016 - 9:25 AM

    The sconces are so fab! The whole room is really starting to come together…bravo! What about something sculptural above the bed like a cool piece of modern art? I have a part of a sun bleached deer skull and antlers that I found on the side of the road in west Texas (it’s just what happens out there) hung above my bed. I like the 3-Dness (?) of it all.ReplyCancel

  • Lucas Goldbach - April 6, 2016 - 9:36 AM

    Have you considered leaving the wall bare above the headboard and handing a small print/painting over each of the side tables?
    Maybe a few euroshams with a stronger pattern will add the interest you’re looking for on the bed?ReplyCancel

    • Kim - April 6, 2016 - 9:46 AM

      Yes! This is where we’re leaning right now, and I know we’ll be putting photos above each of the side tables no matter what. Maybe once we start with that, we’ll realize that nothing needs to hang above the bed!ReplyCancel

    • Staci - April 8, 2016 - 5:53 PM

      This is the direction I was leaning as well! Something over to each side– small or large, just symmetrical! Or, if you have more wall space on the side of the bed adjacent to the closet, maybe some vertically-spaced art (or a full size mirror) for a little asymmetrical flair.ReplyCancel

  • Rebecca G. - April 6, 2016 - 11:56 AM

    Nice work, seeing the potential in those sconces and bringing them back to life and light.

    Very nice clean-up of the sconces, I like them. I vote for nothing over the bed, it seems to me that sleeping people are defenseless against falling objects and pictures over the bed most likely won’t, but just might, fall. On either side of the bed is fine.ReplyCancel

    I love those sconces. They are great on their own, but look spectacular with the headboard. I vote nothing above the bed. I think the headboard and lights are amazing on their own. If I did any art, it would be a small cluster near the lamp above a bedside table. I say let that will shine as is and let art shine in a different location. Anyway, looking good!ReplyCancel

    We had this exact same problem in our last rental home! There was a window on one side of the shower so the shower rod had to go above it. I think it was 105″ or something totally insane. I was able to find a clear shower liner, then ended up hem-taping a really fun tablecloth I got on clearance at HomeGoods for $5!

  • Mary - March 24, 2016 - 10:18 AM

    Hi Kim,
    I’m a firm believer in floor to ceiling shower curtains. They add so much more to a bathroom that a standard sized curtain can’t.
    I’ve always made my own (complete with small grommets). I love having the ability of using any light-weight fabric to make my own.
    And If you hadn’t found your current curtain, I would have been happy to make one for you. And I wouldn’t have charged you because of all the tips & advice you’ve provided so freely on your blog. I live with-in driving distance, so keep me in mind when you want/need a new curtain.ReplyCancel

    That slubby texture is so great! Can’t wait for the final reveal!

    I have had similar problems finding shower curtains for my two bathrooms because one has a corner tub (needs an extra wide curtain to cover two sides) and the other has a tiny stall shower. I was able to cut a regular shower curtain down to fit the stall shower, but extra wide shower curtains (that are made of natural fibers) are SO DIFFICULT TO FIND! I ended up buying a plain white cotton duck one from Signature Hardware and embellishing it with black tassels…because who doesn’t love tassels?!?!ReplyCancel

    I did the same when I redid my bathroom. I absolutely love how tall the curtain is, and I actually ended up buying linen curtains from Marshall’s and using them. I considered sewing them together but then loved the way it looked with space between them. It lets a lot of natural light into the bathroom from the skinny window above it.

    One of the things I’m most excited about in our upcoming bathroom reno is the shower rod! I can’t wait to get rid of our current, beat-up, pressure rod one. Weirdly, our shower curtain is the one thing we already have, and has influenced some of our other design choices. And it was a Target clearance item. That’s how life works sometimes, I guess!

    I had a shower like that once. My solution was to get a good waffle weave shower curtain, and slash it horizontally around the 1/3 down mark. I bought an attractive print cotton (I used a Bali style batik) and sewed about 12″ of it into the slashed area. It looked GREAT, if I do say so myself :-D. Just straight seams, nothing fancy. Plus, I didn’t have to do holes across the top for rings (like adapting a window curtain or something would require) since it was a shower curtain to start with.ReplyCancel

    I want to hang a new curtain in our hall bath, and hang it high. Hubs thinks that’s crazy talk! I’ll probably do it anyway. What I’m loving is those shower curtain hooks! Please share the source for those!ReplyCancel

    Good quality, simple shower curtains are incredibly hard to find. I ended up getting this one:
    (on sale at the time) and I love it. Worth spending the money!ReplyCancel
