After moving into a cozy mid-century ranch style home while four months pregnant, Emma’s editor-in-chief, Sarah Hubbell, rapidly began nesting. Painting the kitchen, ripping out old carpet and designing the baby-to-be’s nursery, she crossed off projects one by one. One project, however, fell lower and lower on the priority list. Fast forward a full two years after move-in day and this busy mama’s bedroom still needed a major dose of TLC. Finally, with the help of her handy husband, the neglected corner of their home got the love it desperately needed.
The couple did not shy away from mixing patterns, from a stenciled accent wall to navy striped bedding. They kept it looking cohesive with a complimentary color palette of navy and yellow. Mixing new pieces, like this yellow tufted headboard from Hayneedle, along with thrift store finds, like a crate repurposed as a night stand, the pair created a room that feels tailored without being too stuffy. Take a peek around their new space.
