Sleeping In with Reverie Sleep System

After having a second baby, life has definitely changed for me.  Juggling work at home and managing a household is already challenging to say the least, and adding a demanding infant to the mix can be stressful. But the hardest part is always trying to the best mom I can be, and balance my limited time and energy with each child, doing more than just meeting their basic needs like feeding, diapering, or bathing – but actually enjoying those special moments that make parenting wonderful.

In order for me to really give my best self every day, it is so important for me to get a good night’s rest. If I don’t sleep, I find myself zoning out all day long, snacking incessantly, and reacting to little things with a much shorter temper. When Sophia was born I started sleeping in her room on a daybed, because I didn’t want to have to wake up Tom every time I got up to nurse her. Right around then, I got the opportunity to try out the Reverie adjustable sleep system, and it was a good thing because very soon I was back in our bedroom.

Reverie’s sleep system is a holistic approach to sleep. The system has two major components, including an adjustable base and a DreamCell mattress (or two mattresses depending on the style you choose). The adjustable base allows you to lift your head or feet up, and also has other special features like massage. For our king bed, we have two separate mattresses and bases, and each base has its own controls. The DreamCell mattress is completely customizable to your level of softness or firmness.

Overall we absolutely love our new bed. I never realized I could improve my sleep so much until trying out this system. I think everyone needs to at least try an adjustable base system to see just how comfortable it can be. I also love the headboard which has a modern and clean design that works great in our room. We like to spend our weekend mornings in bed now – sleeping in and just hanging out – me reading or working on blog projects and Tom and Adam playing on their iPad’s or reading books. For sleeping, I can set my side to my comfort level without disturbing Tom. In the middle of the night, I just lift up the head to a seated position and I’m comfortably nursing Sophia without straining my back. Tom loves the zero gravity setting, where the head and feet are slightly lifted, so you feel like you are sleeping on a cloud.

Having children is never easy, and when you add house responsibilities, cooking, sports, homework, and after school activities – you have a recipe for one tired and stressed out mom. Sleeping well is so important to maintain your health and sanity. A huge thanks to Reverie for helping this mom get her much needed rest!

Master Bedroom Refresh

It has been about five years since we moved in, but I had never quite finished our master bedroom design. I was always prioritizing other things and it sort of just got left behind. I am currently testing out the Reverie Adjustable Sleep System (my review will be up this week!), and getting a new bed gave me just the push I needed to spruce up my room.

My personal style is a mix of laid-back and ultra glam, most probably stemming from my California upbringing, I don’t like things that are too stuffy or ‘done’ looking.  So for the bedding I went with a washed linen duvet set in an earthy natural tone. It is also very light and airy so it is perfect for summer. Throughout the space I have mixed materials like metals, wood tones, and fabric.  At the same time I love luxe touches like brass, marble, and beautiful art and florals, which I added with the chandelier, table lamps, and decor items. Scroll down to see more, and all the way down to see the before!

  1. Art – I personally love framed art prints, and this limited edition print caught my eye and was the basis for the new color scheme. An easy DIY I also like to do to save a few bucks on art is to buy my own frames from ikea or west elm, and frame pictures I take from pages of books and calendars, or even my own photos printed out.
  2. Rug – I moved this rug from our living room when we bought a new rug for that room. I love how it anchors the space and makes the room look more cozy.  Rug tip: be sure to have at least two legs of furniture on a rug, my preference is to have all furniture on the rug.
  3. Table Lamps – I liked how these nightstand lamps gave the room additional symmetry and a minimal vibe. Tip: for a more eclectic look, use two different lamps, or mount one lamp to the wall.
  4. Velvet Pillows | Center pillow on bed and pillows on sofa from Homegoods |  Maybe the most obvious on this list, but I have to include because I LOVE changing out pillows for a new look. I’ll swap living room pillows in bedrooms, really the possibilities are endless. I love how the velvet and beaded throw pillows add a luxe vibe to my washed linen duvet set.
  5. Throw – Every bed should have a throw blanket in my opinion. It is functional and it helps creates that covetable layered look. Mine adds a touch of Moroccan flare to my otherwise neutral room.
  6. Chandelier – We used to have a fan that we never used, and I’ve been wanting this light fixture for such a long time I finally found the perfect place to put it. It adds such a cool artistic touch to the room, and works well with the boho glam theme I have in my house.
  7. Duvet Set –  The natural washed feel of the linens make the bed so inviting. I also wanted to make sure to have a bed that was really plush and soft, so I bought a new extra fluffy comforter to insert inside. This duvet set has ties inside to grab the corners of the comforter – which is absolutely necessary – there is nothing that annoys me more than when its all bunched up on one side of the duvet.
  8. Nightstands– We needed some drawers because our old nightstands were overflowing with remotes, chargers, books, etc. However, I still wanted to keep the space open and airy, so I avoided bulky options in favor of these nightstands which have just enough room for our things, and a cool mid-century vibe that I love.
  9. Coffee Table |Sofa – things we already had in our room that I loved and wanted to incorporate in the design.

Here is what it looked like before:
