Our master bedroom has always been my favorite room in our house namely because the lighting is always perfect and it’s the closest room to being “done” (if done is really ever such a thing). We’ve made quite a few updates to this little space over the last two months so I thought it was about time for an update on what our Master Bedroom looks like today.
Brooklyn Bedding was kind enough to send us one of their king sized mattresses so we started our room transformation by completely shifting the orientation of our room set up to accommodate a king sized bed. Having our room orientation this way was actually our best use of space compared to our previous set up, so we are pretty excited about that!
One of the coolest parts of this mattress is the way it was delivered. They come rolled up in a cardboard box that you can lift with two people, and bring into a tiny house like ours with ease. The entire king sized mattress literally fit inside a box smaller than me! I have seen these types of mattresses pop up over the last few years and I was always curious if they would actually live up to the hype or not. Now that we’ve had our mattress for a little while it’s safe to say that sleeping on a foam mattress is a world of difference in terms of both back support and enjoying a deeper night’s sleep, and they DO indeed live up to the hype!
Sleeping on a foam mattress was new for us, as we had been sleeping on a 12 year old standard, spring mattress for the entire 7 years of our marriage! Yikes. At first the foam felt really firm, perhaps even a bit too firm for us, but don’t let that scare you when you first get the mattress because we’ve been sleeping on it for about 3 weeks now and the mattress has started to break in and form to our bodies so nicely. We are absolutely LOVING it. We selected the “medium” firmness since this was their best seller, but BB has 3 options for you to select from depending on your firmness preference. It comes with a super soft pillow top built into the mattress which also allows for extra comfort.
The verdict? The Brooklyn Bedding, mattress in a box is a 10 out of 10, would recommend!

We obviously had to upgrade our bed frame & bedding since we got a fancy new mattress, items are linked below for your convenience. ;)

I am a total book worm and I read for at least 10 minutes, if not longer, before I go to sleep every night. So it was really important to me that we had great bedside lighting. We upgraded our previous sconces with some new ones from my favorite, modern lighting company One Forty Three. These “Wallace Lamps” were also kindly sent to us at no cost, and they were the perfect addition to our bedside. The Wallace Lamp comes in every color of the rainbow and they come in both hardwired or plug-in versions. Their clean, minimal design fit the aesthetic of our room perfectly and I’m so glad they are part of our room design!
And perhaps my favorite addition to our room is the custom portrait, embroidered art above my nightstand by Stitch Folks. Carrie and I met through Instagram several months ago and I was in love with her embroidery the minute I found her. It was unlike anything I had ever seen and I was dying to see one of her pieces in my home! This piece is so, so special to me and I was floored when I opened the packaging and saw how spot-on her portraits were..it looks just like me and Jeff! I’ll be sharing more about this little piece in an upcoming post, so be on the look out for that.
