Decorating our Garage Bedroom

We've been slowly adding furniture and decor to our bedroom since converting our garage into a living space.  One by one our bedroom is coming together.
    
As much as I love pretty things, how we function in the room is important too!  Based on our needs we carved out a little space for sleeping, relaxing and eating.  Eventually I want to add a desk for computer work.

We enjoy sitting here watching television or just talking.  I love being able to sit here with my kids and hear about their day.

Since we no longer have a room for storage, it was important for us to create a spot to keep our home improvement things(paint cans, tools, etc).  A window seat with storage solved our dilemma.  I plan to cozy it up by adding more pillows and a seat cushion to create a reading nook.

We especially love our eating area.  It's a nice place to have coffee in the morning while enjoying the peace and quiet.


I purchased a bookcase (Birch Lane) to display some of my favorite things.
  
Framed art, family pictures and decor books are just a few things I have on the shelves.

I'm constantly moving things around to get them just right.  The bottom shelf has been hard for me.  I'll figure it out.  I'm up for the challenge! LOL!!

I'm taking my time choosing more artwork.

For the nightstands I kept things clean and simple.

A small dish for jewelry and my glasses.  A candle and fresh flowers add in more color.  My husband's side isn't as pretty! 

So there you have it, our progress so far!!  I'll continue to update you as our room takes shape.

  2. What a lovely space you have created! I love the soft colors. It is both beautiful and relaxing looking.
    Smart move on taking the art work slowly. It seems when I have rushed just to have something on the wall I have picked things I just feel ho hum about. When I am not looking is when I find what I absolutely love.

  10. It looks so cozy and like such a great escape after a long day! I love that you incorporated a little dining space for coffee and lounging with the kids. So sweet!

  11. It looks fantastic, Brandi!!! You've been so smart with storage solutions too. And I totally get it about the bottom shelf being hard to decorate. I ran into the same problem when we built our shelves for the living room. I took the easy way out and used a long narrow basket for the bottom shelf. Then I folded up a burlap coffee bean sack (that I purchased at our local coffee house for $2) inside it. :)
