For the past couple of months, I’ve been experiencing some lower back pain. This was the ultimate tell-tale sign that I need to buy a new mattress. Other than car shopping, I hate mattress shopping. I don’t care if everyone else is doing it, bouncing around on various mattresses in a soft lit showroom is awkward. Yet, for the sake of my health, I have to buy a new mattress. Luckily, thanks to online mattress companies mattress shopping is not as stressful as it used to be for me. Since I’m buying a new mattress, I decided to also look into ways to refresh my whole bedroom. I’ve been pondering and pinning some ideas on how I’m looking to refresh my bedroom.

Organized Vanity Areas Inspirations

I spent some of this past weekend chipping away at my spring cleaning list and decided to in my bedroom, because that is where I spend most of my time. The one area in my bedroom that has been accumulating the most clutter is my desk area. However, I haven’t been doing much work in that space. It’s becoming to be a catchall for mail and other items without a home. Therefore, I’ve decided to turn it back to a makeup and vanity area. For inspiration, I’ve become obsessed with looking for pictures of vanity areas for inspiration.

Gold Home Accents

gold home accents

I love gold! Please feel free to read that previous sentence in the same drawn out way as “Goldmember”. If you don’t know that reference,  do your “Googles”.

Although I love almost anything gold, I know not one to go overboard with it by adorning myself in head to toe gold, despite the occasional desire. Therefore, I try to add touches of gold in the form of accessories. A gold watch and gold hoop earrings here or a chunky gold bracelet with layers of thin gold necklaces there. You know…subtle, but chic.

You can apply those same styling principles when styling your home. Adding gold elements to your home decor with the placement of gold home accents is very easy to do. Here are some simple golden touches that you can add to your home decor.
