My bedroom serves 2 purposes with a similar mood between both: a place to do my make-up, and a place to decompress/sleep. I wanted it to be a space where, regardless of what I had going on, I felt calm/relaxed. A more minimalist bedroom works for me because it is exactly what I need with not much more. Here’s what I’ve done with it:
Bed Frame: Living Spaces (similar)
Mattress: Casper Original (someone recently judged me for this, but it’s the most comfortable mattress I’ve ever owned)
Pillows: Casper (pricey, but worth it)
Duvet Cover: Amazon
Duvet Insert: Amazon (rated for all season while being fluffy but does get very warm in the summer)
I upgraded to a King size bed a few years ago and it was easily one of the best things I’ve done. You can easily fit 2 people plus a dog with plenty of room to spare, and it’s a huge upgrade from the Queen I slept on for years.
In retrospect, I mildly regret getting a gray bed instead of a white one so I could have more fun sheet/duvet colors. The white ones are easy to maintain with regular washing, but I have to add color in other ways (like my super soft pink blanket).
Ikea is great for basic furniture pieces that you can modify for more of your style. Erica did a great post on upgrading a Malm Dresser. I really liked the simplicity of the Hemnes but didn’t love the black knobs it came with. I found these great silver ones from Target randomly one day (similar linked above).
Floating Vanity: Ikea Alex Shelves
Square Mirror: Ikea
Texas Ring Dish: Anthropologie (similar)
Perfume: Chanel Chance Eau Tendre
Brush Holders: Acrylic cup & I <3 NY Mug
Initial Lights: Michaels (similar)
This vanity is the best make up storage I’ve ever found. It holds everything I own make-up wise (which is a sizable collection for a minimalist, I have more than 1 of everything for a full face) and doesn’t take up a ton of space. I organize the inside with simple drawer organizers (similar), which helps with keeping everything in the same place as I open and close drawers.
Mirror and Chair
The Ikea Hovet mirror is the *best* dupe for any large West Elm-style mirror at a much more affordable price. It’s pretty tall, so if you have a sedan like I do, consider getting it delivered so you don’t have to drive VERY carefully home from Ikea.
The last thing in the room is the chair, which I mainly use as a place to hang out that isn’t my bed. It’s one of those furniture pieces I’ve had for a while that I plan to replace soon (maybe with a bigger pink chair? We’ll see), but it’s comfy enough that I can spend an hour or two reading a book in it.
