BEDROOM TOUR | my modern & minimalist room tour


– Hey guys, I’m excited
to finally take you on a tour of my beautiful, modern, and moderately minimalist new bedroom. If you watched my living room tour, you know that I partnered with Havenly, an online interior design company, to design my living room. And because I had such
as wonderful experience designing that room, I
partnered with Havenly again to design my bedroom. Now, I’ve already shown you the process of what it’s like to work with an interior designer online on my living room tour video. So if you’re interested in the process and the behind the scenes, make sure to go back and watch that video. But as you can imagine, I have definitely learned a thing or two after designing both of
these rooms from scratch, so today, after the bedroom tour, I’m gonna share with you three tips I have for making an apartment
feel more like a home. I know many of you are
currently living in apartments, so I think you’re really
gonna love those tips. But for now, let me show you around my gorgeous new bedroom. When I started this project,
I knew I wanted a fabric bed and my designer recommended
this modern, low headboard bed from Interior Define and
since I’d already purchased my white living room sofa
from Interior Define, I was pretty confident that I
would love this bed as well. My design goal with the bedroom was to create a luxurious,
hotel-like space, so for bedding, I went with crisp, white, super soft, and 100% organic cotton sheets from Boll and Branch. And to break up some of the white, I added stone colored pillowcases on larger king-sized pillows, which are great to prop up against, and a gray cable knit throw
at the foot of the bed. (relaxing music) Now, equally important
is what you don’t see, which is my new 100% organic
mattress from Naturepedic. And so far, I’ve had
some of the best sleep that I’ve had in ages. I initially wanted a white
dresser for the bedroom, but not being able to
find something I loved that fit between those two windows, we opted for this solid maple
dresser from Crate and Barrel. It’s a bit more traditional in style and actually came with black knobs, so to give it more of a modern flare, we swapped the black knobs for these gorgeous hand-painted
ones from Anthropologie. On top of the dresser, I
kept things pretty simple, and have glass shadow boxes from West Elm, a low geometric planter from CB2, and this glass art, which
is a personal memento from a trip to Italy several years ago. I had requested that my
designer find a small chair so that it would be easier
to put on and take off shoes in the bedroom and I’m loving
this simple yet elegant mid century, modern chair. Now, you guys know I love
greenery so on the other side of the dresser I
added this standing planter from West Elm and my designer
selected these hanging planters from CB2 above my chair. As soon as I saw these hanging
planters on the design, I instantly fell in love
with them and now I can’t wait for my plants to start trailing down. So with a dark dresser
and not wanting my room to feel too dark, my
designer was able to keep things light and airy with
these sleek and sophisticated white and brass night stands
from Restoration Hardware. For lighting, we went with
these very cool triangular lamps from Lulu and Georgia that have a concrete base and brass accents. (lively music) On one nightstand I have
my sunrise alarm clock which I’ve had for over
10 years and I swear by it and on the other side I
have a potted aloe plant and another personal memento,
which is my Nefertiti sculpture from a trip to Egypt. For my drapes we chose these
gray, Belgian linen drapes from Pottery Barn and hardware
from Restoration Hardware. I also went with blackout
drapes which not only keep the room nice and dark but
they also help to muffle some of the street noise which is a huge bonus for good sleep. One of the first things you
see when you walk into my room is this floating wood
floor mirror from West Elm. It’s beautiful, it makes
the room look spacious and of course, helps me to
get ready in the morning. The gallery wall above my
dresser seamlessly ties together my SoCal, modern
and minimalist vibes with hints of ocean, sand,
greenery and soft human touch. And similar to my living
room, we mixed and matched the frame colors for a
little more visual interest. I already had the artwork
in the top left and chose all of the other gorgeous
pieces from Minted. But I think the truly epic
artwork is the one above my bed, an extra large
beach print that just makes me so happy to wake up
to every single morning. As you can see, I
couldn’t be more thrilled with how my bedroom turned out. It truly is a cozy bedroom sanctuary. So on that note, let me share
with you three design tips for helping to make your
apartment feel more like a home. It’s common in apartments that
either vertical or horizontal blinds are already provided
but blinds on their own can have a very cold
and sterile feel to them so I highly recommend that you
add curtains to your windows which will not only soften
the room but add texture due to the drapey nature of the fabric. Curtains can also make a
room look larger because you can place them higher than the window, drawing your eye up or
you can add double panels to each side of the window as I always do, which makes the windows seem wider and the room more spacious. There’s nothing more
that screams transitional apartment living more than
blank, white walls everywhere. And yes, you can still
have a minimalist apartment but a cozy and homey
minimalist apartment with a few key and intentional pieces of artwork. Artwork can help to
express your personality and entirely change the mood
and ambience of the room and whether you’re going
for a more sophisticated and classic look or a
bohemian and eclectic look, the right pieces of art
can strike that perfect balance and harmony for the room. Now this tip should come as no surprise. If you’ve been following
me for any amount of time as I love plants and greenery. Plants instantly make an
apartment feel more lived in and not only do they add a
pop of color but they add character and texture in these
beautiful, organic shapes that add interest to any room. Plants provide many health
benefits for indoor living as well and some even help to
clean and detoxify the air. They add life, they
help to bring an element of the outdoors in and they certainly help to make an apartment
feel more like a home. I hope you guys enjoyed
my bedroom tour and all of the details for the furniture and decor that I purchased can be
found on the full blog post on my website and if you’re
interested in working with Havenly, which I highly recommend, I’ll have a link to them as well. Alright, that’s it for me today. I will see you guys
again in the next video.

  1. Hi guys! I'm so absolutely thrilled with how my bedroom turned out. It's the perfect blend of all my design tastes and truly is a comfy little bedroom sanctuary. I hope you get some ideas from it as well and all of the furniture and decor I used is linked in the full blog post (in the description). What's your favorite part of the bedroom? xo – Lisa

  2. I love this so much! I love the way that it styled, the color scheme, the minimalistic approach. I swear I tell myself this all the time, that one day when my three little boys are bigger, I WILL have a white couch! And probably a white comforter.

  3. My family will totally be like "you need more furniture in this room." then they'll pack it up like hoarders. Great roon btw 💖💖💖

  4. Another great video!
    Your bedroom is just as nice as the the living room.
    They’re coordinated beautifully together.

  5. Beautifully done Lisa … great work on keeping the room minimalistic yet elegant, stylish and comfortable. The white is a dream for me, some day maybe i can be brave to do the changes. Meanwhile what plants have you used for your hanging baskets? The greenery is wonderful !!!

  6. I love the way your bedroom turned out Lisa. It is very tranquil and definitely has the 5 star hotel feel.

  7. Here’s a question that’s always plaguing me, what do you do with clothes you wore once but don’t need to be washed? I don’t want to put them back in the armoir…..

  8. Wow. You did a great job decorating. Beautiful room. I like the clean look. The mattress seems very comfortable. :).

  9. Thanks for sharing. It’s beautiful!! One quick question.. how do you mount your picture frames? Nails or tapes?

  10. I really love your room, I want a similar one but my bedroom is twice smaller than yours. This is a very spacious bedroom, and very pure, the colours are very cool white/brown/grey/black everything I love. I think you have the best nights you’ve ever had with this mattress.

  11. Your new bedroom is gorgeous! I have never heard of a sunrise alarm clock. I just went to your blog. Thank you for posting a link for an alarm clock you recommend. I love your style!

  12. New subscriber…..
    Absolutely loving your channel! Stumbled across you a few days ago and have been binge watching in my free time-lol
    Motivating me big time 🙂

  13. Hi Lisa,
    What kind of sunrise alarm clock is that?
    I've been looking into getting one for a while but I can never decide on one.
    Love your room.
    Thanks.
    -Lauren S.

  14. New Subbie here, I was sent over from Nappyheadedjojoba to check out your video on cold brew! Loving the aesthetics of your videos!

  15. This is one of the most beautiful bedrooms I have ever seen! The perfect blend of relaxed and luxurious. Very inspiring!

  16. Bathroom and your patio please!!! Omg, I can feel how relaxe are you in your home. Greetings from Bali, I heard you've been there before as well 😊

  17. Really love your bedroom design! Though in terms of feng shui the artwork on top of headboard is not the best one. It is good to avoid images of water and other people in your bedroom.

  18. This is not at all minimal! Why do people use this word as some sort of trendy label for middle-class households??? The room is full of unnecessary crap! Fair enough, it is expensive and well chosen, therefore it looks clean and modern, but it is ABSOLUTELY not minimalism!

  19. Everything beautiful but I noticed you dont have jesus or virgen Maria in your apartment. They gave you what you have girl thanks to them.

  20. I started to follow you really and it was im very happy to watch your videos i like your idea about the food you make and thank you very much,i learn more..more power to you..and you have a nice and elegance room very simple and clear ..i like too,you look simple person..god bless

  21. Where did you buy the blackout drapes/curtains and what color are the walls? Beautiful design with good functionality. Thank you.

  22. This video came up in my auto feed and I'm so glad it did! I loved your style. Very nice, I can't stand where I live and I need to make changes on a budget. The layout is so awkward and walls and baseboard are all one color and no closet space. I viewed your other videos and wow! Can't wait to watch more.

  23. I really love everything here, it's great inspiration!

    The only thing I wouldn't have is the shoe chair because I mean I could just sit on the bed 😁

  24. Hello, i am new to your channel and love your videos. I have been trying to find a good sunrise alarm clock and wanted to know what brand do you own?

    Thanks!

  25. Hi, I love your bedroom I think it’s beautiful and I’m going to order the hanging plants. But just wondering, what did you used to get the planters at different hanging heights, did you add links to the chain or change out the chains completely. Thanks Laura

  26. I never get tired of watching this video! I love it and want my room to look just like yours. So beautiful!

  27. Your videos are a breath of fresh inspiration for home ceeations and whole foods healthy made at home. Bless you!😊

  28. I’m absolutely in LOVE with your bedroom! I have some elements that are the same in my room but mine is more Old Hollywood Glam, my whole home is on the modern side, but the tips from your bedroom gave me so many ideas! Thank you!!!

  29. The most important benefit of indoor plants is that they inhale CO2 and exhale O2 providing humanity clear oxygen. That's why is very important to have more woods and trees on the Earth that gets reduced tremendously lately by human's stupidity.
