There are few things I love more than coming home after a long day at work and crawling into bed in my beautiful, cozy bedroom. Something that I might just love even more than that, however, is decorating that bedroom to make it so beautiful and cozy.

One thing I was most excited for when I first moved out of my childhood home was the opportunity to create a living space that was all mine. Although the process certainly took time (it’s been over a  year and a half and I still say my apartment is a work in progress) I like to think it’s coming along well.

Today I’ll be taking you on a virtual tour of my bedroom, and touching on a few specific pieces that I feel really tie the room together and help to make it into a space that’s just right for me. I’ll also include direct links to where you can get the look, too.

I like to keep my bedding pretty simple and play up other aspects of the room instead. My main goal for my bed is for it to be as comfy and welcoming as humanly possible, although that definitely makes waking up in the morning far more difficult.

I love having a nightstand next to my bed; a perfect place for my laptop, phone, or tea to sit while still being within arm’s reach. Also useful for storing my (few) books below and other knick-knacks and trinkets in the drawer.

Above my bed is this wooden mirror piece and, although I don’t use it as a functional mirror, it serves its decorative purpose coupled with a corner shelf and artificial plant.

The window next to my bed not only has a cool view of downtown Hoboken (and my fire escape) but also offers a big enough sill for (more!) fake plants and candles. I love lighting the candles when I first get into bed; they create a really soothing ambiance at the end of a long day.

The space at the foot of my bed I use for my mirror. It’s set atop a shoe rack that I assembled myself and paired with a live pussy willow plant and HomeGoods vase. I did want to hang my mirror at some point, but the initiative got away from me and this option was a close second.

One of the most useful piece, functionality-wise, in my room is my clothing rack. Unfortunately there is not much storage space in my apartment, and I’m a girl with a lot of clothes. So to help out my closet, I got this garment rack to provide extra hanging space for my sweaters, along with another rack for my shoes below.

My dresser is definitely one of the main focal points of the room. I like to keep an eclectic collection of statues, candles, and artificial plants around the base of my custom DIY mirror. Making this mirror was super cheap ($7 for the mirror + $5.99 for the shell fragments) and created a cool, custom piece for the room.

I hope you enjoyed this little virtual tour of my bedroom! People are always asking me where I got specific pieces and decor from, so hopefully including direct links was helpful as well.
