Other title option? Pleather is the New Pillow.

Remember this room?


That bedding was from the old house and obviously didn’t match anything.

And while this wallpaper isn’t what Nick and I would have chosen, it’s actually really pretty in person – very busy, but very pretty.

Since we have quite a few projects we’d like to tackle before worrying about this wallpaper, I wanted to keep the rest of the items in this room simple so nothing would clash with the pattern on the walls.


You also saw this room last weekend while it was still in disarray. Nick had to adjust a few things in the frame to make it fit the mattress we had, but after that was done and thanks to a fun house shopping trip this past weekend with Nick’s mom, the bedding is done!


And I love it.



The best part is that everything was either free or cheap!

We got the quilt and shams from Nick’s parents because it was an old set they weren’t using any longer.

The blanket is from Big Lots. Super soft and cozy.

The beige sheets are from Kohls, I think? They were bought right after the holidays on super sale.


These awesome brown pleather pillows were in a set of 2 from TJMaxx this weekend and only $20!

And the mauve microfiber pillow was $6 or $8, also from Big Lots.

SO much better, right?

I like that the pleather gives it a more rustic look and keeps the room from looking too fancy schmancy with that wallpaper.

Now if we can just get the rest of the house caught up ; ) It’s a work in progress! But we do have a new living room rug on the way, and I can’t wait to see that.

Are you doing any redecorating right now?


Our next big project is that kitchen – the fruit wallpaper will be coming down!

The New House: Bedding

Now that it’s December, I can officially say that we’ll be moving this month! It’s still a little crazy to me and doesn’t quite feel real yet, but I am very excited about getting into our first home.

Even though the contract is signed and things are moving (we close later this month), there are still places where the house is listed online so I’m not going to post pictures just yet – but they’ll definitely be here once we’re in the house.

Since I don’t want to put up pictures of the house yet, I figured I could at least show some of things we’ve bought for the house.

First up?


You’ve seen this quilt before, but this is the picture of the whole set.


This quilt / shams are from Kohl’s and are for the master bedroom.

We’ve been using this quilt for a few months now, and I love it. Since it’s a lighter weight quilt, we’ve layered it with a soft blanket above our sheets to keep us warm on these chilly winter nights.

As for our guest bedroom (our first ever real guest room!), I picked up this quilt at Kohl’s on Black Friday while it was on super sale.


The colors in this are even prettier up close. I love the deep rich chocolate brown paired with the crisp white and pale greens and blues.

And, we will have another guest room! But I didn’t buy any new bedding for that room – Nick’s mom and dad had a beige/cream quilt they weren’t using so we’re going to bring that home to use in the other room. It will actually be perfect because the room it’s going in has very busy wallpaper at the moment so a plain/simple.

I know some people don’t like quilts, but they will be great in this house. The home itself was originally built in the 1920s and I wanted to keep that feeling in the house while finding colors and prints that are a little more updated.

I can’t wait to show you pictures of the house!
