. . . . .
Have you ever looked around your bedroom and noticed the little things that make your room, well, you? They could be something big and bright, or small and subtle. Either way, they're the things that make your room feel comfortable and familiar.
My room is pretty much all white. White walls, white furniture, white bedding, white curtains. It's a simple color and easy to pair with other colors. But what I love most about a white palette is that it allows all the ordinary, or semingly mundane, things to stand out.
My sheets and duvet cover are white, but the edge of my pillow covers have gray leaves. An empty mobile hangs from a corner of my ceiling, always subtly swaying and spinning to the room's natural airflow. The collection of W magazines that I've yet to read, stacked next to vintage Fortune magazines that I've yet to look through. And the warm presence of Charlie next to me as I reluctantly wake up every morning.
