{ Summer Cottage Garden Bedroom Refresh }

Hey pals welcome back!! I hope you all had an amazing holiday weekend & enjoyed some down time with loved ones!! We did just that & we FINALLY got our master bedroom refresh complete! I wanted to try something a bit different with this refresh, so I decided to make the hour drive to our closest . We had never been to Gordmans before, so I was super excited to shop their decor inventory & even clothing!!! I mean who can say no to a new { to me } home decor store haha NOT me! When we first arrived I couldn't believe how huge & fresh it felt..I got right to shopping & immediately found a pillow I liked, but couldn't find the matching one so decided on something else, but was kindly informed that Gordmans gets a new truck every week, so that means fresh items stocked weekly..for me that's a definite plus! I had somewhat of a vision of what I wanted our "summer bedroom" refresh to look like but wasn't entirety sold on my idea...After shopping Gordmans for a few minutes I knew exactly what theme I wanted to go in thanks to their amazing selection!! Before I ramble anymore, come see the full reveal below!!!!
Side Note: This post is picture heavy..

So once I got my thoughts together after admiring everything for a minute I landed on these tin cottage tealight houses!! They struck my eyes & that's when I decided I wanted our bedroom refresh to be something of an old cottage garden retreat if you will!! I love the simplicity of them & they're super durable & lightweight, plus candles...YES PLEASE!! 

Keeping with the theme of a cozy garden cottage, I spotted this pillow & I loved the grey simple wording to add to the space! The texture is thick, yet still cozy & it was under $12..I mean how could I not haha!?

Per my style, I wanted something a little whimsical to add to this space so when Mark spotted this garden style faux chandy I knew I had to have it!! It's rustic, chippy white, garden-ish & had  built in galvanized plants! It pairs nice with the rustic string lights & touches of metal, greys & wood accents!

I was also informed that Gordmans price match any competitors' items!! It's so simple, all you have to do is take the ad,website or receipt featuring the identical item you're comparing & they will match the price of the item & give you a $5 Gordmans gift card!! They pride themselves on having the lowest prices, but sometimes it's hard to keep up with the huge assortment of merchandise they get in, so they have the Lowest Price Guarantee in place as a "flag" to help them catch items that may slip by.
 When somebody price-matches, Gordmans Corporate is notified and they will work on lowering the price on that item. To me this had be sold instantly..I mean they genuinely want their shoppers to have the best & most affordable shopping experience, how cool is that?!

I needed something for on top of the chest at the bottom of our bed since my other basket broke. I wasn't sure what I wanted, but knew I wanted something wood, rustic & with texture that could hold pillows & decor. I spotted this one for under $10 & whoops it came home with me haha. I love the wood grain detail & the jute crisscross in the front!

If you know me, you know I loveee my greenery in any area of my home! I spotted these at Gordmans as well & I had to get some. I love that these brought in that cozy garden feel but still with some texture & that earthy rustic feel I crave in spaces!

I kept the bedding simple with cream ruffled sheets, an artisan cotton cream comforter & some cream, grey & tan check accents.

 I have something to admit to you guys...I am so PICKY when it comes to lamps!! Rugs & lamps..It takes me forever to find something I like..Well, I finally found these wood & metal lamps while at Gordmans & I seriously love them!! They bring in that cozy rustic feel, but still a bit modern too. They're perfect for this space in terms of size & look! They're actually Better Homes & Gardens brand, which is another thing I liked about shopping there, they have all kinds of brands higher & lower to choose from! I could have shopped for hours you guys haha.

What do you guys think of this summer cottage garden bedroom refresh? I'm so pleased with the cozy airy summery vibes going on in this space! It's bright, rustic & whimsical..everything a cozy bedroom needs right?! I almost forgot, be sure to check out your local Gordmans for their anniversary event on July 21st in all stores!!

Happy Monday!
