We are so excited to share this post with you because it is our latest obsession, and favorite part of Grace’s whole room. Jenna’s husband built the most beautiful day bed with plans from Ana White. We loved the bed so much, but it was a huge hassle to make every day. My toddler could no way do it by herself, because it was even difficult for ME. So basically her bed was never made, so really, her room was NEVER clean and tidy like I would have liked it. It bothered me to no end. Enter Beddy’s Zip Up Bedding. I had just about reached my limits one day lifting and tucking in her quilt when I remembered about zip up bedding I had seen once on Shark Tank a long time ago. I immediately google’d it and was so happy when I saw all the cute styles available. I chose Chic White for Ms. Grace. The ruffles are just so sweet, and it’s lined with minky fabric, which she is over the moon about.
The best part is the sheets are built in so you just slip on the cover and you’re done. The zipper is really easy to use for her, she loves that she gets to make her bed everyday. Now if I could just teach her how to arrange her pillows just how I like them…. hmm. I’ll have to work on that.
I just love this bedding beyond looks, my mom sanity has gone up a few notches… and I need every once of sanity I can muster these days. Have you ever thought of zip up bedding? Now we want it in all our kids spaces! It is so great!
Today I’m popping in to share our newish family room rug which was quite the drastic change from the sessile rug that was seen in my Fall Home Tour last year. I certainly loved the kid friendliness of sessile, and the natural texture was just the stuff dreams are made of… but I wanted to do something more risky with my space. I like neutral a WHOLE lot, I mean… most my house is grey or white… but I think that provides the perfect situation to bring in a punch of fun. So I went for it, and took the risk on this beautiful rug during a great sale, from RugsUSA around Black Friday. This site has frequent amazing sales, and lots of useful customer reviews on their rugs that are quite helpful when trying to figure out the true color, etc.
When I first unrolled it I was a little taken aback by how BLUE and BRIGHT it was (I mean, I had sessile before… so… quite the change) But it has sure grown on me! It makes me smile every time I take the time to clean up the mounds of kids toys and can take it in… which I’m trying to do more often BTW. But let’s be honest… it’s hard. Good news is covered in tractors and beanie boo’s it’s still pretty.
I am very happy with the great quality of this rug, it has a soft silky feel, and has stood up well to our family of two children, a puppy, and messy adults. I had ordered rugs for design clients from RugsUSA but never for myself, and I am quite pleased with the price points as well as the quality! Rylen has purchased some rugs for her home from the site too.
I love when risks I take around my home end up being so rewarding. This rug is definitely an anchor in our family room space, and has really brought so much liveliness to our home… Isn’t it great how adding a little unexpected item, that may be a little out of your comfort zone can end up being the greatest thing!
