a cozy, summer refresh for the master bedroom

I don’t know why but our master bedroom is the room in our home that usually gets the least amount of concern.

Maybe it’s because we don’t spend a huge amount of time or host guests in there (wouldn’t that be weird, ha?!) but it’s the last room we see at the end of our day and the first one we see when we open our eyes in the morning. So it’s worth some investment, I think!

I recently moved our dresser over and brought in one of my favorite chairs from IKEA, the Strandmon Wing Chair, and turned this boring corner into a little refuge for quiet times and reading.

Next I’ve been playing around with ways to arrange our pillows to give that “fluffy bed look” that makes you want to jump in at the end of a long day. I looked up some ideas for arrangement on pillows and messed around with styling a little bit.

I love those minty-blue euro pillows I got at Target last year (they are SO soft), but sadly they sold out of them before I could purchase a third one to line the back of the headboard with the larger pillows. I wanted to avoid having to buy all new euro pillows (which are usually $25-$50 each and I would need 3 or 4) so I tried this arrangement first.

I think I like it!


Charlie and I were at HomeGoods today I passed by these pillows that looked like some sort of watercolor painting with all these fresh, delightful colors and I brought them home with me! As much as I love my shades of blue, I am really enjoying a pop of blush right now too. It was a perfect touch of summer.


I started folding back our duvet when I make the bed so it has that “fuller” look too. There really is an art to making a deliciously fluffy bed. I’m still learning.

I might play around with the walls above our bedside tables tomorrow, but I will say I am looking forward to climbing in our fluffy bed tonight and enjoying the space around us.

I’d love to hear your bed-making tricks for that “fluffy” look if you want to join the conversation here or on Instagram!
