art for small spacesWe love sleep. It’s a fact so true, angels consider it the ultimate truth. That, and probably whatever the Pope says. But, that’s beside the point.

Over the course of three years, it’s taken us three years to redesign our apartment. And by that, we mean to say, we’ve only gotten so far as our bedding and the art on our walls. BUT, that’s progress.

Do NOT rain on our parade. But, if you do, make sure it’s glitter rain.

We live in a studio apartment. With our cat. And so naturally, when we say anything of the sort, “Oh, we just redesigned our bedroom!” to random strangers, as one does with random strangers, we mean to say, we redesigned the section of our main room that has a bed, and Thomas, our cat, helped choose everything.

For bedding, we went with Parachute, designed in California and made in Italy, obsessing over having a linen white duvet with satin powder blue sheets. SATIN POWDER BLUE SHEETS. WHO HAS SATIN POWDER BLUE SHEETS? We do. Now. Now, we do.

Fact: there’s nothing better than sleeping in satin sheets. Well, no… maybe snuggling with twenty-seven kittens in satin sheets. That would be better. While eating endless slices of pizza, watching Bob’s Burgers in bed. The dream.

For art, we opted with prints from Minted that either 1) matched the aesthetic of a Slim Aarons portrait or 2) included an important color we’ve been trying to incorporate into our home: pink (very, very important). Without sounding like a broken record on the importance of pink, we’ve steered in the direction of choosing four main colors to use throughout our home: blue (preferably of the baby or powder kind), pink, white, and light grey.

Above our bed, a 40″ x 54″ print of Going For A Swim by Whitney Deal. Above our clothes rack (we DIY made that, bee tee dubs), a 40″ x 30″ print of Colors of Spring by lulu and isabelle.
