Yesterday was a BIG exciting day for me and for everyone who followed along with me over on my Instagram stories!! My bedroom FINALLY came together thanks to the amazingly talented team at The Cross Decor & Design and I’m BEYOND EXCITED to share the details of my room with you today because needless to say … BABY, I’M IN LOVE!!!
For those of you who haven’t heard of The Cross or who may not know … I’ve been a loyal fan and customer of The Cross ever since they first opened their doors back in ’03! Back then I was really struggling to make ends meet and I remember I would walk into their store and just look and everything and dream … I would tell myself that ONE DAY I would own something from there and maybe even convince THEM to love ME just as much as I loved them! LOL.
I drained my bank account (which wasn’t much at the time lol) with my first big purchase at The Cross which was two beautiful white bedside lamps … I bought the lamps the first year the cross opened when I truly couldn’t afford it but I knew then I had a champagne taste on a beer budget! LOL!! Fast forward a few years, Bachelor, The Bachelorette, etc. Every time I had a big design project I always started at The Cross because I wanted them to fall in love with me. A few more years passed by and I was in a different situation where I could treat myself a little more frequently than I used to so everytime I was in search for something special and timeless, I would always take a gander through The Cross first, I truly believe in quality over quantity for particular things and their items were the best!
Since then my dream came true … I worked with The Cross on my last bedroom in our previous home, it was all white with a fresh, crisp vibe to it, very Monika Hibbs inspired!! But this time around I knew I wanted something different and unique in our new home … and that’s when I turned to The Cross for inspiration for something NEW!
I knew that I wanted a headboard with wings … but something that was soft, luxurious and feminine, a lot of the beds out there with wings seems too intrusive and sharp for my taste … and I knew I wanted a POP of colour because my followers always razzed me about having too much white in my home!! LOL!! (Yup, I’m looking at YOU! ?) … That’s when PINK popped into my head!! As you know pink is very popular right now as people are getting more and more bold with colour on larger pieces in their home. So, I partnered up with the team at The Cross and together we started designing my bed … we went through so many revisions and prototypes and finally … THEY NAILED IT … the perfect shape, proportions, size and color… dusty rose!!!
I was absolutely blown away at the beauty of this bed … the shape of it … the quality …. the feet … the base … the colour … everything. In fact, we ALL loved it so much that we wanted OTHERS to be able to have it in their homes too so, they made this exact bed available to EVERYONE!!
It wasn’t that easy though … we were ALL skeptical of the pink at first. SO much so that The Cross team convinced me to try both a neutral and a pink and THEN decide … I mean how could I argue that?! The girls flew all the way from Vancouver to Kelowna to help me with this decision (thank you thank you ladies!!) and they brought BOTH beds with them. We unwrapped them and stared at them and I debated over and over and over again. The headboard in the colour, Caldera Alpaca (AKA Oatmeal!!), is typically the colour I would go for … but this time, I knew I HAD to have something different and I knew I had to go with the pink (AKA Rose Quartz!) … it was way too gorgeous to pass up.
Once I made my final decision we started dressing the rest of my bedroom with Pom Pom at Home linen bedding, a STUNNING new chandelier (that they named after SHAY!!!!), a GORGEOUS vintage rug because one of you bought the one that I was going to buy (LOL thanks guys), pillows, candles … I was in heaven. We also noticed that when adding little touches of greys, creams, and blacks it helped to tone down the “femininity” of the bed and the overall feel of the room … I know what you’re all thinking … how did Justin handle this?! LOL!
Welp. With a little convincing that pink in a bedroom is an aphrodisiac … Justin was convinced this pink bed was surely going to improve his sex life so he was on board!! Jokes on him … LOL!!!! Lastly, we had such an INCREDIBLE response over my new bed (and all the fixin’s) on social media yesterday that The Cross decided it would be amazing to give away one $1000 GIFT CARD towards any of my picks from The Cross to ONE OF YOU!!!
