Since my last post about the Rogers home, we've moved! We moved into a cheaper and larger house in a different neighborhood, and that was a chance to reorganize and redecorate. Since getting married about a year and a half ago, we've saved our money and hit up flea markets and furniture sales to add to our home piece by piece. You probably wouldn't find it in an HGTV magazine, but I am proud of us. We don't need to have it all yet, and our janky little home is a good start for us.
The key to the bedroom was to create a vintage-inspired space that both my husband and I could feel comfortable in. I wanted it to have vintage elements, but I didn't it to be so feminine it didn't look like a man lives there, too. I think the bold colors and clean lines work well for both of us, and soft touches like gold frames, jadeite-colored accents and fluffy pillows make it comfy and vintage!
I found this vanity for $60 in an antique mall! It's not in perfect condition, but I love it!
I got this hope chest a few years ago, and now I use it as a side table and for storage. I also have a deal with Jacob: any jeans he is "saving to wear for later" will be safe from me and being thrown in the laundry if they are on top of this chest!
Also, the stick next to the bed is an arungu. It's a Kenyan weapon and Jacob's choice for home defense, so criminals beware!
Jacob and I had people sign this picture instead of a guestbook. Instead of storing away a book in a box forever, now it's a piece of art.
And here's a peek into my closet. I store all my scarves on the door and sweaters and shoes on those little shelves.
I made the "Got Five?" Dallas Cowboys pillow for Jacob while we were dating. It's a reference to their five Super Bowl wins, so of course Jacob heartily approves of this for our home decor!
And here's a quick video to give you an overview of the whole room:
