Bedroom Design {Inspiring Spaces}

While procrastinating on writing an essay today, I decided it was about time to clear out my alarms on my iPhone. Naturally a priority over my homework, right? 

I had probably a million alarms saved because I set two different alarms every morning, five minutes apart, to make sure I don't hit snooze and sleep the day away. 

Why am I telling you this? Well...as I deleted each alarm, one by one, I had a realization. Every alarm that I had set is a time that I was woken up. Then, my designer brain had another thought. For every one of those alarms that went off, I woke up in my bedroom. And however it looked the night before is how it looked when I woke up. That, my friends...is a roundabout way of saying that the design of your bedroom is really important. Possibly even more important than other rooms in your home. Your bedroom's wall color, the comfort of your bed, the scent...all of these things may subconsciously affect the way you start your day. 
Here's a few bedrooms that have caught my eye recently! I wouldn't mind waking up in any of these lovely spaces.

I adore that first bedroom!! What I love about my bedroom is that it's very spacious so we have plenty of room to spread out and lounge and really enjoy the space. We spend a lot of time in there!

1. Isn't it so amazing what your brain can come up with to take priority over studying? Teachers should consider including that creativity as part of the grading process.

2. I totally share your enthusiasm for multiple alarms. I have a billion of them and I love to tinker with little strategies for setting them to achieve the optimal waking-up experience. Still working on that one.

3. Also supportive of the quest for a lovely bedroom. But honestly, I don't see much of mine in the mornings because my eyes do not open for at least a full hour after I get up.

My dear, this has been the perfect reminded to get my room tidied up..I've been putting it off for a few days now.
I also hear that making the bed in the morning gives you extra energy throughout the day!

I love all of these rooms! They're so cozy. My favorite part of my room is the lighting. I have huge white windows that let the light in so beautifully. I love it!
