Did you catch my latest blog post?? We added bunk beds to Finn’s room! Now that they are built, I get to do my favorite part, add the finishing touches! AKA the bedding!!! On Finn’s old daybed, we had zip-up bedding that we liked a lot, but I did miss the look of a layered fluffy duvet. The other goal for his bedding was cozy texture for fall! Want to See what I came up with….?

It is super cozy now, don’t you want to come stay? Finn loves it too. The white window pane duvet cover was my starting off point, and the reason we could go with dark paint on the bunk bed. It brightens the space in the right ways and pulls the room together!
- Window Pane Duvet Cover– LOVE this pattern, it is timeless!
- Duvet Insert– the duvet insert is really fluffy, essential to a cozy bed!! Also the insert and the cover both ties in each corner so it stays in place.
- Window Pane Euro Sham
- Mustard Euro Sham– I took these off the girls bed to try here and I love the pop of mustard! They are for sure staying here. Also I think a little bit of linen always looks good on a bed.
- 26″ Euro Sham Insert– these pillow inserts are all great quality and really full I typically like to go up a size in my insert, but I didn’t need to with these.
- Jersey Sheet Set– these are SO soft!! We will have guests that stay in these bunk beds occasionally so I wanted a really nice set of sheets.
- Gray Cotton Blanket– this is super lightweight, more like a throw. I wanted something thin for the bunk bed. If you are looking for more of a quilt, I love this one, it is still lightweight too.
- Standard pillow inserts– I really like the the firm or extra firm best, they fill the pillow cover well.
I talked about how Kevin built the bunk beds on this blog post. The color is called Gray from Benjamin Moore. I love how the color ties in the ceiling and adds some weight to the space.
The beauty of building our own bunk beds is that, when we were planning the beds we were able to plan for storage under the beds! We also wanted to make sure that the lower bed would have the most head room, so an adult could sit-up comfortably as this space will double as a guest space when we have grandparents come to town!
You may already know how much I value a good night sleep for everyone in the family. Sleep is essential, especially for wellness! Finn has always been a good sleeper in his own bed, but he loves the cozy blankets, and a night light with this new addition to his room! 🙂
One of my top tips for bedding is to keep it monochromatic, this keeps it simple and allows the duvet to pop!
Kevin built a little nook for the a cup of water or books. And I guess a little more head room if a taller adult uses the bed!
He can just stack the two extra pillows at the end of the bed when he sleeps. And they are also nice to lean up against for reading.
Don’t you just love the fluffy duvet! This was exactly the look I wanted! I do believe it is important to invest in a nice quality duvet, I have tried inexpensive duvets before and I end up needed two to even make it look full and fluffy! It is an expense that you NEVER regret. Especially because once you find nice inserts, they last for a really long time! I have had our duvet insert for over eight years!!!! Trust me on this one, quality really does count for an insert. (Duvet Insert here).
In a child’s room, toy storage is typically paramount. Finn plays in his room everyday and I wanted him to have an easy way to manage the inevitable clutter. Along with the storage under the bed, I stacked those two cubbies on top of each other to make a little bookcase for toy storage.
Paw Patrol Garage– anyone else have a child obsessed with them? This bookcase acts as more toy storage across from the bed!
