Making My Ideas Reality

Since and, well, actually before Colby and I got married, I have been thinking about the ways I wanted to change our bedroom. It’s boring. It’s ugly. It needs desperate help.

I’ve dealt with it because I have not had enough of a pay check to purchase the items I have been wanting for the bedroom.

This weekend, though, Colby and I might be taking a step in the right direction towards the bedroom I dream of. We’re in the market for a mattress.

You see…Colby likes a firm mattress, and I adore a nice, luscious  soft mattress. Clearly that poses a problem. Ultimately, we decided we would get a Sleep Number mattress.

Before, we had thought we wanted the i8.


Money is still holding us back though. For a king size mattress, it would cost us $2,949 ON SALE!

We have now decided to lean towards the p5!


We’re going to the Sleep Number store on Saturday {if everything goes as planned}.  I wanted to test it out one more time before we make the ultimate decision.

If we get a new KING SIZE BED, we have upgraded from our tiny full size bed. This means we need a new headboard. Pottery Barn, here I come!

I have chosen this lovely number to grace us with its presence. Meet Riley!


With this new upgrade, I’m definitely going to need some new linens, too. While I haven’t gotten this approved yet by my other half {particularly the price}, I’m still loving it.

While I am naturally drawn to green, the current quilt is basically the same green, and I am planning on transferring it to the guest bedroom. I feel as if I should choose a different color, and I am leaning towards this light blue shade. WE NEED LIGHT IN THIS HOUSE!


This would be the alternate choice if  decided to go with green anyway.

These are the sheets I’m leaning towards, too. Every southern girl needs monogrammed sheets. That’s exactly what I would have done with these, too.


If you love Pottery Barn like I do, you can design your own bed linen combinations here.

Hopefully, I will have the energy to complete this idea bedroom makeover post soon.

P.S. It’s Thursday! We’re almost to the weekend!
