Jonathan Lo of Happy Mundane is another blogger that I've always enjoyed reading since joining the blogging world over four years ago. Today we're getting a peek into his chic and peaceful bedroom. Enjoy!
mj: what did you have in mind when you put the room together?
jonathan: This house is actually the first one I've ever purchased. So, when it came to the bedroom, I really wanted it to feel "grown up." I always feel "grown up" when I stay in nice hotels, so that was the inspiration. Specifically, I recall a stay at one of the W hotels in New York that sparked the idea for the headboard. They're actually just two plain closet doors that I stained, and rigged with some velcro and some wood. I placed some strip lights behind for a glow.
mj: what do you love about it?
jonathan: It's just feels really comfortable and warm to me every time I come in. However, it also reminds me of where I've been and where I still want to go. About a year ago, I added the blue throw, which sparked a redo of the paint color for my master bathroom (which the bedroom opens up into)- before, I just had all neutral tones, but the blue just added another level, and i love the dark richness it brings.
mj: what you would like to change if anything?
jonathan: Lately I've been finding myself attracted to many things gray, black and white- I'm not sure what that means yet, but if I were to experiment, I think this would be the room to try it in... we'll see...
Thanks Jonathan for stopping by!
