The bed is the centerpiece of the bedroom, and it was more than time for us to upgrade after almost 4 years of sleeping in a hand-me-down that I absolutely despised.
We got rid of our black metal frame bed and ordered a velvet tufted wingback bedframe with nailhead accents from Hayneedle. This romantic style was always a dream of mine! We went with a queen size so that it would fit in the apartment with our giant mirrored nightstands, but one day we’ll get a king size when we buy a house and give this one to our daughter. All we need now is a new mattress to finish everything off! There are so many places where you can buy mattresses online, so watch this space and I will let you know how we get on. At the moment, we have a few brands in mind but still need to decide how much money we want to spend on a new one. This Simba Mattress Review sings high praise for the mattress so I think we’re leaning towards that option currently. For now, though, I am so pleased with how our bedroom has turned out. We have also made a few other additions to complete the look of the room – a few new lamps which compliment the bedframe, some bay windows similar to those designed by companies like Renewal by Andersen, some flowers to add a natural touch (although I may replace these with fake ones once they die) and some new textured cushions for the bed. We have also considered treating ourselves to something like a bayliss rug to go at the end of our new bed, as there is a perfect space for one.
UPDATE: I found this same bed for hundreds of dollars less than we paid here.
A big thanks to Mr. Bond for helping me put it together. Although I’m handy, this install is definitely a 2-person job.
