Morning, Cakies! Nothing like the new year to have you dreaming up all the ways to create your dream abode in the coming months. Whether you’re newly engaged (any holiday proposals in the house?), have just started building your Gift Registry, or are just looking for a way to cozy up your space, the bedroom should be the very first place you start. We may talk a lot about entertaining guests here on the blog, but we’re firm believers that special attention should be paid to the place you rest and relax in. Ya with us? Allow us to illustrate, with bedroom faves from Crate and Barrel

For a bedroom refresh, you may not be doing away with all of your existing furniture, but the Blair Nightstand is a simple way to bring all of the other details together in a new way. (And it’s part of the Blair bedroom collection for those of you starting from scratch as newlyweds.)

Once you find the perfect pillows, make the most of them with comfortable pillowcases and sheets. Beautiful, luxurious pillowcases are a perfect Registry addition, because they’re not too spendy yet give your bed an instant upgrade. We’ve listed our personal reccs below, starting with the Monterey King Grey Striped Sham. Anyone else all about those coastal California vibes? These are woven with twisted, yarn-dyed cotton and adorned with flecks of cream and crisp, cream vertical stripes.

BTW, this nightstand pairs particularly well with other natural elements like greenery and a Gleam Backlit Alabaster Accent Lamp for a modern twist. No matter your style, sprucing things up with greenery is always a good idea. Especially here in California, where natural light floods those windows in the morning!

A good bedroom update involves new and cozy textures, too. In Amanda’s space, the Cozy Weave Ivory Throw and furry Pelliccia Pillow add warmth to those fresh white linens. Don’t be afraid to layer up multiple fabrics… If there was every a place to do it, it’s gotta be the bedroom.

Of course, new reading material is our fave non-decor way to freshen up this space.
