There is only so much you can do to a rental apartment - thankfully ours has neutral walls and a flexible landlord who is willing to let us make this place our own within reason. My bedroom has always been a sanctuary for rest and rejuvenating. I value true rest almost as much as food and creating a space to purposefully do so is important in my life.
It was a bit strange moving in with a boy and having a moment of realization that oh I just can't do whatever I want to. Fortunately we both love natural elements and cool colors so our bedroom came together quite easily. Our favorites include the tree and leaves bedding we scored on a major sale from Crate & Barrel and our newly added DIY pine cone branch. And oh hey, you can make one too!
Fish Eye Hooks
Dry Wall Anchors
1. Collect pine cones of all different shapes and sizes and a tree branch of your choice.
2. Connect fish eye hooks to branch and use screws to attach to wall (use dry wall anchors if you cannot screw into studs).
3. Cut yarn in varied lengths, hang over branch, and tie pine cone on.
4. Spread your pine cones sporadically throughout the branch.
