Master Bedroom Reno

We are finally to a point where things feel to be calming down at our house! I feel like it has been a whirlwind the past few months as this renovation happened and I am so excited to share it with you all.

If you have been following along for the past 3 months you have noticed a lot more content around that has to do with our home. We recently added on to our home, and had a blast doing it! Finally things are slowing down with work, and workers not being in our house 24/7 so I thought it was a good time to start sharing the renovation.

You will see before pictures, messy photos and then finally a vision come to life.

Here I will be showing you all our new master bedroom, we extended 6 foot to the side for the bathroom and walk-in closet and and 6 foot out to extend that bedroom.

The messy part was not fun at all. We dealt with not having a backyard for about a month, a lot of mud and dirty dog paws!

When things actually started to feel real. Seeing the framing was so surreal to actually start visualizing it all!

When the siding went up, we were able to begin on the interior and start building out the master bedroom, bathroom and closet.

Current View

This is our current view! We are using our guest bed currently while we wait for our new bed frame + chest to get delivered Sunday! I have had a vision for our master bedroom for a while now and I thought I would share it with you! Check out the bed frame we ended up getting, side tables and other pieces that I am eyeing!

DETAILS

Bed frame [HERE] + Chest [HERE]are from Nebraska Furniture mart! I love a good deal and let’s be honest I have a credit card there and we thought why not use that!

Walls- We ended up going with Sherwin Williams “Snowbound” for the trim and walls.

We will be adding black drawer pulls [HERE] to the chest to have matte black accents that match our bathroom (will post that Reno soon) I love when you can take a piece of furniture and make it your own by adding little things.

Natural rug goals [HERE]- I have my eye on this beautiful woven cream rug. I love the neutrals paired with textures. I want to add either real greenery and or faux fig tree [HERE] in a corner paired with a bamboo basket [HERE].

Full length mirror [HERE]- I finally get to splurge on a full length mirror for the perfect try on sessions – DUH. I have been eyeing this one.

Artwork- Okay I am loving this simple yet STUNNING portrait I mean come on, so beautiful!

Lamps- I am not sure if I want to do a colored lamp, black or gold? Adding different colors and textures is a big thing for me in 2020 to our home. See different combinations below.

10 Healthy Habits To Balance Your Lifestyle

10 Healthy Habits

I don’t know about you but I sometimes bite off more than I can chew. I often try to combine too many changes, work, social life and my hobbies. So today I am sharing with you 10 Healthy habits to create  more balance in your day-to day life.

Go for a walk in the Morning and at night for 30 minutes at least, or more!
Walking for me in the morning or after work has been a way to let out negative energy and try hard not to interact with my phone and disconnect!

Drink water throughout the day!
It is recommended to dirnk  eight- 8 ounces a day. Some people who hate water, so for an alternative grab those flavored packages that are no calories and drink away!

10 Healthy Habits

Cut back on coffee and pop and replace it with a fruit.
This one I am still working on, when a Dr.Pepper is taunting me in the fridge at work it is hard to say no.

Write in a journal whether that be about your day, the good the bad or a to-do list of what you want to accomplish. 
Writing in a journal has been a way for me to really escape and turn to god about my problems, accomplishments and goals!

Create a go-to playlist.
Create playlist that you can listen to in the car, work and working out! I find that mixing music up for different daily activities keeps my mind clear. I personally recommend Spotify. Andrew and I have a subscription.

Stretch!
Stretch once or twice a day will make a  difference. Especially if you sit at a desk all day, find time to walk throughout the day whether that be on your lunch or even to get fresh water!

Set Goals.
Setting goals gives you long-term determination and short- term motivation!

Get plenty of sleep! 
We all need plenty of sleep it helps us rejuvenate and boosts our immune systems.

Brainstorm.
Being a creaitve and not working a creative job, I find myself always brainstorming my next big idea. My family thinks I am crazy  with some of the things I come up with. It is always healthy to always be thinking of things that interest you.

Make free time once a week.
I know it sounds hard sometimes, but when you create at least 30 minutes to an hour for free time you can plan what you want to do with that free time. Whether it be grabbing coffee with a girlfriend or taking a drive.

 

Share below what you do to help balance your lifestyle, I would love to hear from you!
