Fall Bedding Refresh

After a couple years of wear and tear, (plus a ridiculous amount of dog fur) I’ve been looking for a new duvet cover to give my bed a little refresh. I wanted something neutral and affordable.

When Vaulia Home Collection reached out about a collaboration, it sounded like the perfect fit and timing! After browsing around their site with a bunch of options to offer, I chose the reversible 300 count duvet cover in gray/white. I love the idea of the two different sides to change up the look and it’s a quick and easy process.

I’ve put together both looks below- hope you enjoy! I also brought in a couple pillows from storage and added a new blanket I purchased at Flying Tiger in NYC. I think I’ll stick with the white for now and can flip it over when I’m itching for a change! This is a great cover if you’re looking for something simple and affordable.

Updated Final Home Tour

I finally updated the home tour page with tons of new photos from my current studio. It’s now currently filled with boxes and boring bare walls, but I made sure to photograph everything a couple weeks ago. Only a few more days left in this lovely little studio and I’m so pleased with how it all turned out. If you missed the year one series, check out the transformations here.

Head over to the New Home Tour page (that name will soon need to be changed) under the drop down menu ‘Studio Apartment Tours’ or by clicking here. A few photos for a little preview…
