Minimalist Bedroom Tour

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

minimalist bedroom bed

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)
Sheets: Amazon
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).

Nightstands

Nightstands: Ikea Hemnes
Drawer Pulls: Target (similar)

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).

Vanity

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

Mirror: Ikea Hovet Mirror
Chair: Wayfair (similar rounded version)

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.
