Pink Velvet Bedroom Tour

Updated: Dec 8, 2023

The first thing I thought about when I wrote this post was my high school bedroom. It was the quintessential late 90s bedroom— the walls were covered with pages of Rolling Stone and Spin magazine, black light posters with trolls and mushrooms on them, and glow in the dark stars. It was very angsty ... just like me.


There's absolutely no way I could have predicted that my "adult bedroom" would be predominantly pink. No way, no how.


The colors in my current bedroom are actually very calming, which is the polar opposite of teenage bedroom. It was crazy in there. Haha. You can see a few snippets of it in this modern day Instagram post.

My king-sized bed takes up the majority of the bedroom, and I like it that way. It's the perfect size to make the room feel nice and cozy.

Prisms for days.


blue upholstered bed frame

Yes, that mirrored wall art is crooked in the photo. It's bothers me, but I will get over it (OR WILL I??).


Moving on ...


I scored my headboard from FB Marketplace, and I honestly wasn't sure if it would look OK with the rest of my stuff. It was the first blue thing I bought for the room.


It's handmade and wrapped in denim. I really love it!


The blue headboard prompted me to find the pink, blue, and yellow vintage chenille bedspread from eBay. It has a few tiny holes in it, but I don't mind. The details are so soft and pretty.


antique hurricane lamp

If you're looking for a set of budget-friendly velvet curtains, these are great, and they come in a bunch of colors.


The hurricane lamp was my great-grandmas, and the bridge score pads belonged to my grandma. You can see some scores below. 🥹

Bedroom vanity with perfume bottles

My house only has one small bathroom, so I made a vanity for my bedroom using a desk I already had, the mirror from the medicine cabinet in my old house, and one of my grandma's antique chairs. Repurposing 101!


It's nice to have a little spot to put my makeup on in the morning.

taper candles in window

The lighting in this room is pretty unreal. I have a suncatcher hanging in the window and it puts off so many prisms.


Here's a link to the color blocked taper candles—they have a subtle rose scent.


vintage paisley chair

My dad found this unique MCM chair in storage several years ago. I've never seen anything like it! I put a couple of my childhood stuffed animals in the chair— it feels oddly comforting to have them in my room.


I bought the set of porcelain angel candle holders and the floral Turner paintings (in the original blue frames!) at a local auction.


The pink and blue color palette just kept happening ...


blue taper candles

Here's a link to my spiral taper candles.

vintage chandelier

This vintage crystal light fixture was in the living room of my previous house. Do you remember it?


white wicker furniture

I never thought I was into white wicker furniture ... until I was. My grandma had a whole set in one of her guest bedrooms.


I have her nightstand set, plant stand, side table, and lamp. I put the lampshade from the wicker lamp on an old pink glass lamp for a mix-and-match-situation.


The nightstands are from Pier 1 back in the day. I miss going there in high school and college—I thought it was so fancy.



My friend Elsie found the old Polaroid shortly after my dog, Kennedy, passed away. It was a really special gift and it felt meant to be.


vintage-inspired crystal doorknob

I really wish the original doorknobs were still in my house, but these reproduction crystal doorknobs are the next best thing. They make a big difference!

This view makes me feel gooood.


printers drawer with miniatures

I wrote a whole post about my antique printers drawer(s). This is one of the first things you see when you walk in the bedroom.


My bedroom has become one of the happiest, brightest spaces in my home and I'm fortunate to have it. Thanks for looking around!


xoxo, Jacki

Can you do a post on how you stay organized or not become a hoarder? I feel like your collections and interests are so cool but also everyone I know who is into antiques and cool treasures (myself included) has such a clutter problem! But you seem to have cracked the code haha!

This would be a fun topic to write about! Honestly, I owned way more stuff before I moved to this house. I got rid of over half of my belongings. It felt really good to do that.


Buying/reselling vintage things helps, too— I only keep the things I really love. I’m more picky and mindful than I used to be. Also, I shop for vintage often enough that I’ll end up finding something similar (or even better) instead of settling on an item that’s just OK.
