Anddd finally I get to show you my beautiful Chicago master bedroom in partnership with Havenly, an online interior design service.
Havenly and I originally connected last year when I was still living in my crappy old apartment. Don’t get me wrong, I loved the place but it hardly had any kitchen space and honestly just felt run down. We had planned to work together to redo my old place, but after Tony and I purchased our condo back in the fall, we decided to redo our new master bedroom. And I’m so, so happy we did.
I worked with my interior designer, Vivian, whom I selected based off of her previously styled rooms that were showcased on Havenly’s website. She was warm and amazing to coordinate and converse with. Initially I requested something minimalistic, but my style has evolved over the past year, and I knew that I wanted our bedroom to be a mix of bold, glam and modern without being overly feminine.
Vivian and I worked together to bounce ideas off one another, and for me to chat with her about what I liked and didn’t like. She was AMAZING.
During the design process, there were a 10 big things that stood out to me:
1.) I needed a custom dresser from MegMade, and Vivian was happy to populate the dresser into the design. Isn’t it absolutely amazing?
2.) I’m obsessed with gold and bronze highlights, so Vivian found a gorgeous mirror from Anthropologie along with a few other lovely details.
3.) It was a must to have all white bedding because I love the idea of getting into bright, clean white sheets — and I firmly believe that they help lighten a room and keep it welcoming. I love my Parachute sheets SO MUCH.
4.) Vivian helped me to select pillows I loved. They’re a mix of colors, patterns and textures.
5.) I found an amazing painting off Etsy that I suggested we try in the bedroom, and oh my goodness I’m obsessed.
6.) The rug! No joke, Vivian did such an amazing job at finding me rugs. Originally we were going to put a larger rug, but because our bedroom is on the smaller side, she suggested a runner. I love the color and unique pattern it brings to the room.
7.) Plants galore! I picked up a few plants from Gather and Home here in Chicago. I’m in LOVE.
8.) I wanted an amazing headboard, so Vivian helped me find one that fit my style and personality.
9.) I needed a space to do my makeup so we set up a small floating vanity from Ikea. It was crazy to put together but works perfectly in that space.
10) We needed small nightstands that would fit in our room next to our bed. These ones were perfect.
Bedroom details are here:

Hope you guys enjoyed my bedroom tour. It’s officially my favorite place right now and converted me to being someone who makes the bed every morning, just so I can stare at all of my pillows.
Again, I had an amazing experience working with Havenly and would highly recommend them to anyone looking for a little help designing a room. Use the code MONIQUE10 and get $50 off a full design, expires 3/31/17.
