Alright, so for this post I’ve teamed up with Glossier to show the world how I do #GlossierPink!
As you can probably tell from the title, I’m giving you a peak into my bedroom by giving you guys a tour of my room!
My family recently bought a house, which means that I got a new room. Honestly, at first this was the only reason I was excited to move. We’d been living at the same place for 15 years, or in other words, majority of my childhood. Needless to say, I was kind of sad to leave the place where I’d grown up.
Fashion and design are two of my favorite things, and I was really excited to have the opportunity to make my room exactly what I wanted it to be!
My parents were awesome and let me completely take over the basement! There’s a ton of space to work with, so there was plenty of room for creativity.
I love anything pink (it’s my favorite color!) and girly, as well as vintage things. This room definitely incorporates all of these things. I like to think of it as being pink and girly with vintage vibes, while still managing to be modern.
The inspiration for my room came from a trip to a local thrift store where we found an old hat box with a floral design on it. I loved it, so we ended up finding a lot more to go with it, and essentially, we designed my room around this.
We also found some really cute teacups, a metal floral wreath, and a pink watering can.
I have wood paneling in half of my room, as well as some shelving built into the wall, where I have pictures and other memories displayed.
Naturally, my bedding is also pink, as is this awesome ottoman I found at an antique store. My seating options are complete with a couch that was in our family room.
Since there’s no closet down here, we had toget creative. We ended up buying some rolling racks for my clothes that need to be hung, and a shoe rack that holds up to 50 pairs of shoes!
I also have a shelf that runs along one wall (which we painted light pink!), where I have my necklaces hanging on a tree.
To complete this room tour, I found this super-cute little end table at the thrift store. Seriously, don’t underestimate thrift stores, they can be amazing! This table looks like someone hand-painted the flowers on it, which in my opinion, gives it that much more charm and personality.
As you can see from the pictures above, I use this table to set some of my makeup and accessories on.
I love that their motto over at Glossier
is “skin first, makeup second, smile always”. The about page on their website talks about how you give life to beauty products instead of the products giving life to you. I’ve always believed that makeup should be used to enhance your natural beauty instead of covering it up amd/or using it (the makeup) to completely change your appearance.
I’m proud to say that I support a company that shares this viewpoint! Needless to say, my tabletop will soon include products from the Glossier website. Click here to browse through their website.
I hope you guys enjoyed getting a peak into my bedroom! I had so much fun putting it all together, and I can honestly say that I love how it turned out!
