Sophisticated and Feminine Office Design Board

Hello! Today, I am super excited to share with you this gorgeous Sophisticated and Feminine Office Design Board. As may of you may recall, last fall, my friend Megan from the blog, Honey We're Home, asked me to help her design the nursery for her new baby girl. Megan was participating in the One Room Challenge and wanted to complete the nursery for the challenge. The Nursery turned out beautiful and was even voted one of the Top One Room Challenge Makeovers from the Seasons Past, by House Beautiful!  It was super exciting to have one of my designs recognized by them. :)

Megan is participating in the One Room Challenge again and she asked if I would be willing to collaborate with her and help design her home office for this season's challenge. It's been great working with Megan. She and I have a very similar style, so it was easy for me to come up with a concept for her office, I knew she would love. We have spent hours on the phone, talking and texting to come up with an office design that she truly loves. Here is what we came up with...

Isn't it beautiful? I can't wait to see it come together. To see "before" pictures of the space, read more about it, and follow along with the 6 week transformation of the room on Megan's blog! I'll be sharing the finished product here, but you won't want to miss seeing the progress of Megan's office over the next few weeks. While you are at it, be sure to check out all of the participants of the One Room Challenge. This challenge turns out some of the best room transformations on the web, so you won't want to miss them!

Lastly, I'm sharing some sources from the design board for you! Click on the image below to be taken directly to the source. I'll share some more sources after the final reveal in a few weeks!

Master Bedroom Update and Why I'm Sleeping Better than Ever!

Hello, friends! I hope you all had a lovely weekend! Today, I'm back to share with you a few small changes I recently made to my Master Bedroom. The biggest change of all was that we got a new mattress!

My close family and friends know that I often have a hard time getting a restful nights sleep. Aside from the fact that my mind is constantly going 100 miles an hour, I would struggle to find a sleep position which was comfortable for me. That all changed the day I discovered Tuft & Needle. Last December, my family and I spent the Christmas holiday visiting my brother, at his vacation home in Sonoma, CA. Our first night there, I went and laid down on the mattress in the guest room. It was so comfortable I immediately jumped up and pulled back the sheets to see what brand it was. What I found out was that my brother had outfitted all the beds in his vacation home with Tuft & Needle mattresses. It only took one night's sleep for me to be convinced I had to have one of these mattresses on my bed at home. My husband completely agreed! He too, felt that the Tuft & Needle mattress was one of the most comfortable he had ever slept on. I jumped on the Tuft & Needle website and was shocked at how affordable their mattresses are! On top of that, I was interested to learn the science behind what makes this mattress so comfortable and sets it apart from others. Here is a short explanation from Tuft & Needles website...

"The mattress industry hadn’t changed in years, aside from adding new sales tricks and gimmicks. So when we started Tuft & Needle, we worked to innovate something entirely new for the industry. Unparalleled in comfort and support, our proprietary foam was painstakingly perfected through customer feedback. It’s not memory foam. It’s not latex. It’s T&N Adaptive™ Foam. And because it adapts to every individual’s body, you’ll always sleep on the ideal firmness for you."

I am telling you, this is the real deal! After returning home from CA, my husband and I became owners of a Tuft & Needle mattress. I can honestly say, I am sleeping better than ever! T&N Adaptive Foam has allowed me to easily find a comfortable sleeping position, which in turn has enabled me to fall asleep quickly and stay asleep all night. Unfortunately, the folks at T&N can't help with my racing mind, but I'm getting better at clearing it and turning it off before I go to bed. ;)

Becoming an T&N mattress owner is super easy and convenient. The mattress is shipped right to your front door! The mattress has been compressed and sealed in an air tight bag. All you have to do is unroll it, remove the bag and watch the magic happen. The T&N adaptive foam will expand and within a few minutes you have a brand new mattress, ready to give you the good night's sleep you been waiting for. Take a look...

So easy!!

Along with my new mattress, I decided to make some subtle changes to my Master Bedroom decor. I switched up my bedding, replaced the rug and simplified my throw pillow game. The changes are small, but they are just enough to give my room a little lift. It feels perfect for the bright and airy Spring and Summer days ahead.

 If you are in the market for a new mattress, I highly suggest you check out Tuft & Needle. Aside from having an amazing product, the philosophy this incredible company had adopted deserves  its' own praise. By creating affordable high quality mattresses, I would say that this innovative company is well on its' way to changing the way the mattress industry does business!!

*I received this mattress from Tuft & Needle. The review is 100% my own, honest opinion.
