RIP Halloween, Part 2

Okay, I know we are OVER Halloween. I’ve already started developing my Newlywed Noel list – all of the new traditions I want Tristan and I to start during the holiday season. Thankfully, he’s more into Christmas than Halloween. ANYHOO – this will be the last post on Halloween.

I already shared our home’s Halloween decor this year. In past years, when my single self lived in a studio in the Ballard neighborhood of Seattle, I shared my seasonal decor pics on Facebook. But as I’ve bid adieu to my studio this year and now to Halloween, I thought I’d post a few of those pics now that I have an appropriate outlet to do so. RIP, little home!  : )

The Neutra-Luxe Bedroom

As we build our home together, we’ve discovered a few differences in taste. I like bold contrast and eclectic combinations; Tristan likes everything to be neutral colored, and the more matching wood furniture, the merrier. I can go neutral in color, as long as camel and dusty blue count as neutral and as long as there’s some texture to spice things up, such as a chandelier, fur (obviously), mirror or uphosltery. See how flexible I am?

As it happens, our apartment came chalk full of built-ins and customized touches, and our bedroom has a built-in jute area rug, white night stands, gold sconces, and linen-paneled walls. It is destined for this “neutra-luxe” look.

Here are some bedrooms I love right now that are inspiring my own bedroom’s design:
