Bedroom Refresh with Serena & Lily

bedroom refresh with Serena & Lily

 

Good morning, chic readers! Almost two years post-Hurricane Florence we are still, slowly but surely, finishing our remodel and getting things photo-ready again. If you’re a Design Chic follower, you probably know how much we absolutely love Serena and Lily. And we can’t wait to show you all the gorgeous S&L products we got to use in this master bedroom refresh. (And there’s one more to come that we’ll show you later in the week!)

We adore this gorgeous natural rattan Lanai Mirror and how it totally changed the look of the room, making it lighter, brighter and adding that perfect touch of coastal feel. It has a slightly aged look that makes it seem to tell a story, just like the house it’s in. We are huge fans of hanging chairs, and just love this one! A Serena & Lily throw and pillow complete the look, with thick, comfortable, quality fabrics that make the bedroom feel homey and cozy.

These gorgeous Venice Rattan chairs are comfortable, beautiful and the perfect size for a tiny nook. We can just imagine having our morning coffee right here. And luscious linen and down pillows add comfort and style.

Did we mention this fabulous hand-braided diamond jute rug? It was the perfect finishing touch over these 117-year-old hardwood floors. Unlike some natural fiber rugs, it is also incredibly soft underfoot!

This stunning nightstand is one of our favorite parts of this bedroom refresh. A gorgeous gray with pretty gold hardware, it not only looks great but also has smooth, easy open drawers with plenty of room for storage.

The bleached off-white shade of this jute rug blends perfectly with the mix of colors in the nightstand. The texture of the woven raffia adds an extra element of style. Five coats of lacquer create a beautiful, chic finish. We love every single element of this bedroom refresh! Keep scrolling for more stunning ways to incorporate Serena & Lily into your home decor, whether you’re on the shore or just want to feel like you are!

10 Favorite Soothing Bedroom Retreats

Serena & Lily

 

Good morning, dear friends. We hope you are all safe and well this Monday. 

 

Serena & Lily

 

With everything going on, it seems like we are all going to be spending quite a bit more time at home

 

Serena & Lily

 

For us, that means taking the time to tackle some of those lingering decor projects.

And attempting to hold second grade at the dining room table. (Thank goodness it isn’t high school! I don’t remember a bit of Calculus…)

With the world spinning out of control–or just slowing down, depending on how you think about it–we thought today would be the perfect time to focus on soothing, gorgeous master retreats.

Because, after all, a good night’s sleep is one of the foundations of wellness.

While plenty of light creates a clean, open space,

And texture and fun patterns add interest.

And if the master suite happens to have a fabulous view, why, all the better! We feel more relaxed just looking at these lovely, soothing spaces. We hope you feel the same.

10 Favorite Benches For Your Bedroom

 

So many details go into making a bedroom feel warm, cozy, restful and relaxed. The linens, of course, are critical.

The curtains are key.

 

And, if you’re lucky enough to have a sitting area, making it comfortable and spa-like is a priority.

 

Right now, one of the things we’re looking for are fabulous benches for the end of the bed. Well, at least we thought we wanted a bench… But now that we see this loveseat we might be rethinking things since this one is so charming! Furthermore, Phoebe Howard always gets it right!

The great thing about end-of-the-bed benches is that so, so many things work really well.

A pair is charming and sweet–and perfect for two people to put their shoes on in the morning.

If you’re not the curl-up-in-bed-and-watch-TV type, a little settee is another great spot to watch or read or relax before turning in…

While a small bench at the end of a twin bed gives a finished touch, especially when you don’t want to use a footboard, we love trunks for toy storage at the end of twins as well!

I have a little French bench in a fun fabric like this at the end of my canopy bed. Don’t these chairs look positively luscious? Pale pink is such a soothing accent color for a bedroom.

It seems like the fun–and really, really hard–thing about picking seating for the end of a bed is that you really can’t go wrong! These little leather director’s stools are so charming. We love, love them for a boy’s bedroom, or a guest bedroom like this one. With all these choices, we were originally thinking of doing an upholstered stool at the end of the guest bedroom bed, but, taking the TV watching into account, now we’re thinking about something a little more comfortable because of all these great rooms.

What would you choose–or did you choose–for the end of your bed?
