Reveal of the new bedroom look
I truly have been waiting for this post for a long time and I’m super excited about it. I was dreaming about it ever since I picked my new rug at my hometown rug dealer this summer in Germany. Do you remember seeing it in my Instagram feed? I was like a kid in a candy store because there were so many beautiful ones but the size mattered and it had to fit in my rooms.
So today I’m super excited to show you some updates that go more with the rest of my home. It’s easy to change a look with accessories if you have some timeless key pieces like my bed and chaise. Both are sadly not available anymore. I received a new duvet cover and shams from my favorite bedding company which is Crane & Canopy who generously sent me the Linden Black Border Duvet and Shams (click HERE). Do you remember my coral and blush look from a while back with the their duvet? Click HERE if you missed it. It is classic, stylish and luxurious, highest quality extra long staple cotton, with weaves ranging in the 300-400 thread count bedding and I’m clearly a huge fan. The photos say it all! I love the simple and elegant look that can be transformed quickly for different looks with the right accessories.
They also sell their sheets separately so if you don’t use a top sheet you don’t need to purchase one. This is a pet peeve of mine because in Germany you don’t use a top sheet and I hate buying sheets which have one which always goes straight into my paint cover stash. Tell me I’m not the only one who hates top sheets? All this girl needs is a beautiful duvet cover. I also love that their duvets have corner ties and easy care zippers. Ain’t nobody have time for buttons, a zipper is so much better.
And lets talk about that throw shall we? It’s a show stopper and works well with everything else in the room. It is the pyramids throw (HERE) from Happy Habitat by Karrie Kaneda. You can read more about Karrie HERE and how funny and awesome she is. I know for sure that this throw will be in a forever rotation at my house because it is so versatile and gorgeous. (Love THIS one from her too which is very similar)
I knew I was heading into a more neutral direction for fall and winter before heading to Germany when I posted about my living room HERE. So when it was time to pick a rug over the summer, I knew what I was looking for.

It is a true vintage Moroccan Beni Ourain rug and I couldn’t love it more. My hometown rug shop has a shop on 1stdibs too which you can see HERE. And in case you missed my new flooring post over the summer, you can see the new bamboo floors by clicking HERE. I love how everything looks and having a bedroom that makes me so happy. When I received my rug, I wanted to place it into my living room though. It would also look so so pretty layered on top of my other rug and I might still do that this winter for a more cozy winter look.
I love a little added color too. I found this cranberry pillow in one of my stashes and I might put it right there on my chaise whenever I feel like I need a little more color.
Here are the links to most of the items in the post: similar chaise HERE, similar lamps HERE, similar bedding HERE and HERE, throw HERE and similar HERE, similar boho pillows (HERE), leopard pillows (HERE), longhorn (remember mine was a find from Craigslist but you can find a similar one HERE, similar nightstands HERE and mine are Ikea, bed is Magnussen Furniture which is discontinued but you can find a similar bed HERE, HERE, HERE and HERE, similar rug HERE, fur HERE.
You guys probably think I’m slightly obsessed with changing things up and you are right. It’s way too much fun and I love doing it. Meanwhile I’ve been working on some other things and severely dragging my feet with my staircase project. Talk to you on Wednesday.
LOVE it! this is my favorite version of your bedroom- i love the neutrals, brass skull, and leopard! emmy has that bedding and we love it! great choices and look!
Oh yes!!! I forgot that Emmy has the bedding too. I truly love it!
Your bedroom looks great, Julia! The black and bedding compliments everything in your room nicely. We don’t like using the top sheets either. I cracked up when I read that yours go straight to the paint cover!
Thanks Brandi I’m never short of paint covers in my house 😉
Our kids don’t use a top sheet either so I put both the top and bottom on the bed and tuck the top sheet around the top of the bed. Then I let them sleep ontop of the top sheet for a week- then rip the top sheet off to reveal the fitted sheet below and put a new set of their favorite blankets on the bed and voila – pretty much new sheets on the bed weekly and I only actually have to change the sheets twice a month.
Oh my! I had no idea that you could buy sheets individually. I hate top sheets as well! So funny. Also, I ADORE that rug and the bedding. It looks amazing. I really love how you are able to change your room for the different seasons. It keeps it fresh and fun.
I should be working on my stairs instead of refreshing my bedroom but this is so much more fun 😉 and thanks so much. I do love changing this up all the time for sure.
Love the new look. Everything complements each other so beautifully and looks very polished.
Thanks so so much!
Wow..Is that a REAL tree on the bedside table? Great idea!
Nope it’s actually not a real tree Carol. I’ve had it for a really really long time and it is from the former Bombay Company. It’ looks real though and I love it. It’s perfect for our high bedroom ceilings.
Gorgeous! I love the neutrals so, so much! And that rug is to die for. That’s so funny- I can’t sleep WITHOUT a top sheet. Send yours to me! 😉
Thanks Shannon, the worst is when the sheet is tucked in tightly at the bottom and I can’t get my legs to hang out. My kids hate that too.
Love that rug!! I’m also obsessed with my crane and canopy bedding!
It truly is awesome bedding and goes perfectly with my new love aka the rug.
Love all the patterns and textures. ..we crazy to change things around so often, but you are right, that’s the fun part. My friends always think I am crazy, but hey…crazy is good, right?:-) Your new rug rocks my friend!
Thanks Aniko, we are crazy but that’s ok, right?
love the room, where did you get the bed side tables. I’am need some and these are exactly what I’am looking for.
Hi Mignonne, They are from Ikea and I linked to them at the end of the post.
I love your room!!! And I like how that brass skull complements your leopard pillow! So wild yet so classy!
Thanks Corey, I wish I would be wild and classy too LOL
I love all the black and white! And that rug! so beautiful, and it looks like it will be so cozy in there for winter; it looks perfect against the new floors.
Thanks Gretchen. The rug makes if perfectly cozy for sure.
That throw is absolutely divine. I adore every change you make in your room. Your layering techniques are always on-point.
Thanks so much Trisha!!!
Your bedroom is amazing! LOVE the headboard and every detail that you have thought out!
Where did you get the table lamps? I love them!
Hi Courtney. I bought the lamp at Bombay Company a long time ago. It looks silver in the photos but is almost like a mixture between gold and silver. Sometimes it looks gold and sometimes it looks silver. This lamp here: http://rstyle.me/~7nkYg is the closest to it I could find. Sorry I can’t help you more.
Thank you so much for getting back to me! I love the urn shape of the lamp. I’m going to tell everyone about your website – I love it!!
I love your rug! Where did you get it?
My rug is actually an original Beni Ourain rug from a shop in my German home town who also has a 1stDibs shop online.
What is the paint color? I love it!!!
Hi, it’s Rocky Bluffs by Valspar
I love it, it´s beautiful!!!
I am currently looking for new (and awesome 😉 ) ideas for my new bedroom… and I have to say, it is not so easy to choose! 🙂
Anyway, I´ve found so much great stuff on your blog! Thanks for the inspiration! 🙂
Best regards from Germany,
Vielen Dank Julia! Ich find in Deutschland ist es noch schwerer schöne Möbel zubinden als hier. Meine Schwägerin schimpft immer. And thank you for the kind words about my blog. I really appreciate it 😉
Really like the look of this room! Curious what the rooms dimensions are?
Oh Julia, it`s been a while 😉
Your bedroom looks great! So cozy and fresh, I just want to snuggle in this bed. 😉
Wirklich sehr gemütlich!
Oh hallo Lydia! Yes it’s been a while! How are you? Und vielen vielen Dank
Oh hi there Erin! Thanks so so much
Could you PLEASE share where the love seat at the foot of the bed is from? I love it!! I did not see any links for it
Just emailed you back earlier. Good luck
