Hey guys! My posting schedule has been a little crazy this week because I’ve been so busy. Despite all the traveling, events, and fashion week, I finally managed to get my bedroom organized and decorated. I shared my living room reveal earlier this year, and now it’s time for my bedroom! If you guys didn’t know, I’m a bit of an interior fanatic. Having a half-furnished apartment drove me crazy, but I’m happy that it’s all coming together.

I was so happy with the results of my living room working with Joyce Pickens that I sought her expertise again! This girl knows her stuff. Most of my bulky pieces (like my bed, nightstands, and chest) were already picked out from Joss & Main, and I needed help pulling it together. With a few decorative touches, Joyce helped transform this space into an oasis. The craziest thing is that my bedroom is extremely small so maximizing space was the biggest battle. If you have the same issue, I’m sharing the 5 essential items for small bedrooms!
So a theme isn’t really an item, but I think going into decorating a small bedroom with a theme or concept will help you tremendously. It could be as simple as a color palette or complex as you’d like. You guys know that it’s all about chic, understated glam for me. I wanted to focus on neutrals, pops of gold and black, and natural textures for a calming, unifying vibe.
It worked out well since I already grabbed the hero items I needed from Joss & Main. I always have so much fun searching for stylish pieces here. It is hands down one of my go-to places to buy beautiful furniture at steal – and so hard to pick out just one thing! All the filters and features on the site make it super easy to shop too.
When it comes to the bedroom, I’m all about great bedding. I was on a long-time search for soft linens that looked simple, a little rustic, and natural. It wasn’t long before I came across Parachute Home and found the perfect aesthetic and textures. I was able to find everything I needed from cushions, sheets, and throws. The soft, comfy linens make it hard to get out of bed in the mornings!
When building up your bedroom layers, avoid too many cushions. For a queen sized one like mine, I found that 7 was the perfect number although 6 would be just fine too!
Small bedrooms need maximum storage space because sometimes, the closet isn’t enough. That’s exactly why I went for a dresser and picked nightstands with pullout drawers. I love my Joss & Main drawer, but unfortunately it’s out of stock right now. (I linked a few similar options below.) A statement piece like this makes a decorative accent while stowing away all your essentials. I use my top drawers to hold sunglasses and jewelry. You can then set decorative boxes like this on top to hold your most loved pieces.
Adding frames and artwork to your bedroom walls add personality and drama. I got these frames from Minted and I love the clean, abstract design. They have so many different styles of art to choose from. Most times, one big frame will do or go with a set of matching ones like I did to add charm. Don’t go overboard with wall art in a small room though because it can become distracting. Artwork can also come in the form of decorative pieces like vases, mirrors, and tabletop pieces, so get creative.
A huge amount of natural light is my favorite, but I think lighting options are essential for any bedroom, big or small. Sometimes, the overhead light can be too intense, so I use my table lamps instead. The dimmer option is easier on the eyes.
I hope you guys enjoyed this post – and my bedroom! Let me know if you have any questions!
