Garage Bedroom Progress: Slow and Steady Wins the Race

Hello friends!  I hope the new year finds you well.  It's been a few weeks since my last post.  I've had my hands full, but I'm here today with a few updates.

I started journaling again.  The writing prompts really help to jump start my brain.  Having a dedicated space encourages me to write.  Mentally, I feel much better after writing down my thoughts.

We've made some progress since our garage conversion.  Decorating a new room is certainly a process.

With so many options, it takes time to find the right pieces.

We created a budget and decided to begin with a few key furniture pieces.  I don't want the rooms in my house to feel matchy-matchy or trendy.  
  
In my bedroom I'm using a gray color scheme with wood, metal, glass and different neutral textures to organically create a look of my own.

Since choosing darker furniture, I decided to keep things bright and airy with white accessories.

I added color through books and artwork.

My goal is to create a space my family and I can be proud of.  A room that my husband and I can relax in at the end of our day.  We still have so much more to do to make the room feel complete; a DIY project for the window seat, exterior shutters and window boxes.  We're getting there slowly, as we piece the room together.  

*Thank you all so much for following along as we complete our project.  I'm truly grateful for each of you being here.

  16. Your room is so airy and relaxing- I love it. I agree though, it is a process. We are in the process of painting our entire house and picking new lighting and I agree it is difficult with all of the choices out there. First world problems!!
