Easy Bedroom Update

In my last few weeks of grad school, things have been a little hectic, and I have been a teeny bit MIA! I'm super excited about some new posts that are on the way, but for now I wanted to share a quick update that I did to my bedroom this weekend. 

Whenever I browse in Anthropologie, I always take a peek at the cute drawer knobs. But for upwards of $10 each, I have never committed to buying enough to dress up my bedroom furniture. This weekend after running into Hobby Lobby for a quick errand, I came across an entire aisle of cute knobs in all different colors. And they cost less than half of what Anthro charges! (see all styles here). If you're a twenty-something girl living in an apartment, I'm sure you're familiar with the IKEA Hemnes collection. The knobs are so easy to un-screw and change out. And since my living room is decorated in more muted tones, I like to add a little color in my bedroom. I couldn't resist mixing and matching different colors, but it would look so chic to do all one style. When I finally grow up and have the funds to re-decorate my bedroom, I'm looking forward to cool greys and light blues. But today, on a sunny afternoon in Bloomington, spending time in my colorful bedroom was just what I needed to recharge before another busy week of class.

Seven great sites for this easy update: Anthropologie (for those of you not on a grad student budget), World Market, Etsy, Bonanza, Pottery Barn, Mackenzie-Childs (even further out of my budget, but so beautiful I couldn't resist), Pier 1


  1. I have a sick obsession with knobs. Why are they so much fun?! It's incredible how they can completely transform a room or piece of furniture. Love how you mixed and matched!

  2. One of the biggest and most important items purchased for a new baby's nursery is the crib, there are so many different colors, sizes and styles on the market, it can be both fun and difficult to buy the one you feel is best for your needs. However, most cribs do not come with a mattress included, and therefore these are a separate purchase. Mattress
