Welcome to my favorite spot in the apartment, my room! I’ve been gradually putting this room together over the past 6 months and it finally feels like it’s all coming together. This is my reading nook, styling room, quiet space, and my hideaway in the middle of New York City.

The room is a mix of neutral colors and cozy accents. The velvet bed frame and pillows, faux fur blanket, and gold finishes bring a luxe element into the room, and the crisp white bedding, mid century furniture, and eclectic accessories give it a contemporary feel. I love mixing classic and modern pieces – the combination makes the room feel inviting and comfortable but still really design forward.
THIS BED. You guys know how much I love my feminine tufted bed frame in Chicago, but this Nina Queen Bed from Jonathan Louis Furniture (in Bella Dove fabric) is so sleek and sophisticated. I love how different it is. I love how high the headboard goes on the wall and I couldn’t have asked for a more perfect gray tone. And the best part – it has a huge storage drawer that pulls out, perfect for city living! I chose bright white bedding from Brooklinen so the bed frame would stand out. I’ve had my eye on these silver pillows from Kathy Kuo Home for so long now, so I was so happy when they ended up working in this room. To find a dealer that sells this bed, follow this link.

I searched for art for the above the bed for so long – art is always the hardest thing for me to commit to. I finally found this 3 piece set of colorful gold rimmed geodes that added the perfect pop of color to the room (Kathy Kuo Home has so many great options for art & home decor in general. Use code KKHxOLIVIA20 for 20% off anything on their site or in this post!). I’ve always loved geode art, and I thought the rich emerald, purple, and blue gave the room some personality.
I love it the way the gold on the geodes tied in the gold base of the lamps. This set of shagreen lamps from Kathy Kuo Home is a dream! The West Elm nightstands are perfect for a small space if you’re wanting to put one on each side of the bed. They can work in both gray and beige themed rooms because of the two-toned finish. This fake plant from West Elm is seriously so real looking everyone thinks it is! I linked the plant and the planter it’s in with all the other bedside accents here:
This dresser was one of the first pieces I bought for the room. I live right next to Anthropologie and I saw it on their showroom floor every time I went in there and finally decided to pull the trigger and get it! I will say the drawers are a little shallow, but the color, gold knobs, and quality is incredible. This giant circle mirror from West Elm pairs with it so nicely – I feel like they were made to go together! I also found these faux mangnolia branches at Anthro and they were so perfect for the vase on my dresser. Linking all of the other decor pieces in this section of the room here:
One of my best Etsy finds ever! This gorgeous acrylic and gold rack and shelf from a store called LuxHoldups. I found this while searching for a rolling rack to hang my clothes for photoshoots. This built in shelf saved me so much room (the rolling rack took up so much more space) and it fit so perfectly into the room. This is a customizable piece that can be found on their Etsy page here: Custom Lucite Clothing Shelf Rack. I found these gold hangers that pair really well with the gold hardware.
And I had to bring a little bit of Chicago to New York, so I worked with Framebridge to frame these two black and white prints of the Chicago Theatre and The Bean in gold Dorado frames. I love this area of the room so much! Here’s the print on the left & here’s the print on the right.
Last but not least – this is the little corner desk space in the room. I still might paint this white so it goes along with the color scheme a little better, but haven’t decided yet. This is the perfect desk for a small area. I usually work in the living area, but this is where I type a lot of my blog posts because I can concentrate better. The velvet roller chair and desk are both from CB2 (pillow on chair). Did you notice the tiny black and white print of the art that used to hang above my bed in my Chicago room??
