Did you know today is National Sleep Day? I didn’t know there was such a thing until my friend Camila said, “Hey, wanna do a sleep day blog hop?” Yes, girl! And so here we are. Fourteen of us are sharing our bedrooms all refreshed for spring and ready for national sleep day – in hopes we’ll actually get some extra sleep today. 😉
I knew the pink couldn’t stay forever.
Let’s be honest, there aren’t a whole lot of guys out there who would prefer a bedroom with pink painted walls. Heck, there aren’t many guys out there who would let their wives even think about painting their bedroom walls pink.
I however, have that husband. The husband that just goes with whatever you say. You say you’re painting the bedroom walls pink? He says ok. You’re putting carpet on walls? He says alrighty then. Creating an indoor lattice wall? Go for it.
I’m pretty damn lucky folks. I really hope you’re that damn lucky too.
All that being said, I did know the pink walls in my master bedroom wouldn’t stay forever. I knew Grunt wasn’t crazy about it, but it was just something I guess I needed to do to prove to myself I could paint a wall pink and make it work. When the opportunity to join this bedroom blog hop for National Sleep Day presented itself, I knew it was a good time to freshen up the bedroom and paint over the pink.
Thanks to Crane and Canopy for providing product for this bedroom refresh. All opinions are 100% mine.

And so now we have blue walls and citrus bedding!
Ok, the citrus may not be all that masculine, but it’s balanced out by the blue walls, green curtains and black accents, no? Just say yes, folks. Just. Say. Yes.
The only things I changed in here were the paint, bedding and lampshades.
I chose the bedding first; it’s The Avery Citrus from Crane and Canopy. To be honest, I’m not usually much of an orange person. But I was looking for bedding that would still work well with my black velvet headboard and when I came across this set, I was like, ‘hmmm…what if…’ and then I showed it to Grunt and much to my surprise, he was like ‘ok, I can do this.’
It’s a duvet cover, so it can easily be taken right off and tossed in the wash. I love the bright pop of color it brings to the room and the classic diamond pattern will quickly date.
I got in on a little more pattern play with the black and white dotted sheets. Grunt did doubt me on these at first, but once we tried them against the other two solid options, he was sold on the dots.
I switched out the bedskirt as well. I opted for a black one to go better with the headboard and to also contrast and keep the bedding popping over the whole bed. For less than $9, the bedskirt packed some bang for my buck.
Same nightstands as before – I love these and have no plans of quitting them anytime soon. I just embellished one the drawers with a green tassel that pulls a bit of that green from the drapes over into this space.
We’ve had the lamps for a couple of years now. They were Grunt’s grandparents and I absolutely adore these lamps. They polish up beautifully. As luck would have it, I happened upon those great black shades at a thrift store last week and snagged them. I wasn’t sure if they would work better in here than the previous beige ones, but I think they do and Grunt said he likes them better as well.
I actually had no idea what color I would paint the room until the bedding got here. I was holding paint chips against it, the curtains and the headboard. All I knew was that I didn’t want to go gray or white on the walls. I had a wild thought to try blue and it worked! The exact color is Permafrost with 220 drops of white added to make it a touch lighter.
The oversized palm art print still worked perfectly for this space. We made that huge diy frame for it for about $20.
I think I actually fell in love with this light fixture all over again after painting the walls. Maybe it’s the fixture paired with the blue, but I think I love it even more than before.
On the wall opposite the bed, I was a bit worried as to how well the blue would butt up against the black and white diamond accent wall. However, I think it turned out great and I now have a new love for a baby blue, black and white combination. In fact, it might be a new favorite triple threat.
Of course, it’s always best to celebrate National Sleep Day with a new pair of cozy pajamas, no?
This Layla Pajama Sleep Set from Crane and Canopy might be the comfiest pair of pajamas I’ve ever owned. And Grunt will tell you, I own a lot of pjs. These are the absolute softest pajamas ever. You can even get them monogrammed if you want. I had a great aunt I never knew, Treva, who I’m told lived in fancy pjs by day and furs by night. They say I’m a lot like her. I think Aunt Treva would approve of these pjs. 😉
