I found decorating the upstairs of our home to be much easier than the main floor (Part 1, if you missed it). Granted it’s about half the space, but just as many different rooms! Our guest room was super simple — we had a set up that we loved in our apartment, so we just kept everything exactly the same! We knew we wanted to upgrade to a King size bed in our master, so we figured we would probably just get new furniture to go along with it.
Our master bedroom is huge — but in a bad way! It’s kind of a waste of space… there is this whole “annex” that is pointless. I mean, you could sit over there with a book and read, but we already have places downstairs to do the same thing! Anyway, I digress. We based our whole bedroom off of this AWESOME canopy bed I found on Anthropologie that I knew would be beautiful. It ended up being the biggest pain to get delivered and arrived slightly scratched, but they gave us 50% off! When you are trying to fill a house, a few scratches are easily worth saving some $$$. It took us about 6 months to save up for the rest of our furniture, so we were half living out of our guest room! It worked for us though and it finally all came together and I LOVE it! Such a peaceful, serene room. Also, wait til you see the walk-in closet…
The rest of the upstairs isn’t super exciting… We have one empty room that will probably be a child’s room in the future, but currently is Rob’s closet :) The final bedroom I turned into a craft room — it was the one spot in the house where I went all out girl — pink walls, girly pictures, etc. We still have lots of walls, etc to decorate upstairs, so I’ll be sure to post updates along the way!
Our spare bedroom/Rob’s closet.
My craft room… SUPER girly, huh? Rob’s least favorite, by far.
Our guest bathroom! So glad I had a place for this shower curtain, it’s super unique! Plan to lose the hollywood lighting in here and update the mirror as well.
Bathroom is decorated with memories from Hawaii.
Our guest room — basically an exact replica of our old apartment.
Our Master Bedroom | Seriously, don’t you love this bed!
This closet is like… 95%… of the reason we chose this house ;) ha! But it is nice because I don’t even need to use a dresser, I just have everything in one spot.
Our dresser and nightstands… so excited when we got these, finally felt moved in.
We ripped out the mirror and hollywood lighting that was installed when we moved in. Simple, but made a huge difference in the look of the bathroom.
Bonus: Here is our basements! It’s a huge, finished space that we probably won’t fill for years! In the meantime I use it as a mini home gym.
