The process of redecorating our bedroom has been quite a long one. We started, stoppedโ€ฆ then started again. Now that we're done, we can simply relax and enjoy the space. It was important to make our bedroom a place we can just sit back and enjoy, maybe even have a slice of pizza! (haha) 

Itโ€™s taken a while, but over the past three years weโ€™ve worked to transform this room from a bachelor pad to an escape from the hustle and bustle of it all. 

It's finally done! I'm so happy!

As the day winds down, all I can think of is crawling into bed and cuddling up in my new sheets. I look forward to this every day! 

Our bedroom is a mixture of laid-back California vibes, hints of luxury, plus a dash of humor. (Cue the "I love pizza" sign!) I also love to include pieces from our travels. Our bedroom includes items from Hong Kong, London, South Africa, and Morocco. We also added a giant photo Aaron took in Iceland at the Blue Lagoon, framed via Simply Framed.

As many of you know, we got married in Iceland almost three years ago, so Iceland will always be so important to me. Waking up and looking at that photo each morning brings me so much peace!

Another aspect we wanted to focus on is to have lots of seating. I know it sounds weird to have lots of seating in a bedroom, but in a New York apartment with limited space, we wanted to have lots of options for people to sit during our parties. We came across some amaaazzziinnggg seating options at Zinc Door, so now we have 2 leather benches and --Aaron's favorite-- a cow hide chair that he drinks his morning coffee on while I catch some more shut eye {sometimes}. It's so calming!

We also decided to make a bold grown up move and opted for a beautiful rug from Loloi.. It added so much warmth to the room. Not to mention, it feels like walking on a cloud, which is pretty rad. 

There is so much more I could say about the room, but check out our extended interview and photos over at MyDomaine.
