Your exhaustion is immediately replaced with frustration. But it doesn’t have to be! Skip the pity party and treat yourself to a bedroom makeover that gives you the sanctuary you deserve. From investing in a quality mattress to fostering a soothing atmosphere with soft lighting, here’s how you can upgrade your bedroom into a room

If you’re not an interior designer, it can be difficult to see a room’s full potential. Say you live in a Dutch Colonial style house — its barn-like architecture might tempt you to decorate with rustic pieces rather than modern. Or if you live in a contemporary space, you’re probably not going to go the traditional route. But with the right decor and some interior design know-how, a room can be completely transformed from what it looked like before. Don’t believe us? Read on to see how we took one bedroom

After five years on the hit ABC show Scandal, actress Katie Lowes is saying goodbye to her role as Quinn Perkins and prepping for her biggest one yet. She’s been doing her research, changing her wardrobe and bonding with costar Adam Shapiro. Their new gig? Parents. Ahead of the baby’s arrival, Katie and Adam decided to bid farewell to their funky Hollywood Hills bungalow in favor of a more family friendly home. But the change wasn’t easy. “The night before we moved in, I was crying. There’s something about when

Any sleep enthusiast would agree that the bedroom is pretty high up on the list of most important rooms in the house. There’s even scientific proof that a dreamy, well-designed bedroom can contribute to good zzz’s. But alas, there are many spaces we have to think about when designing our homes, and most of us can only allocate a certain amount of money towards each. So where should you spend and where should you save on bedroom furniture? Our designers weigh in on the key elements to consider when creating your

We’ve said it once and we’ll say it again — interior design is not just for celebrities or your rich auntie from Connecticut. Sure, style comes with a price, but it doesn’t have to be so outrageous that you have to eat top ramen for a few months. At Laurel & Wolf, our designers are well-versed on creating high-style homes that don’t break the bank. So we challenged Catz Divirgilio of Blondiesloft to design the same glam bedroom at three different price points. What did she come up with? Read on to find out! Related: One Room,

When Dave Arthurs and his husband Brennan first laid eyes on the condos at Canyon View Estates, they envisioned themselves spending long, leisurely afternoons, reclining on a sun-splashed patio, sipping cool drinks and admiring the desert mountains just beyond. It was a paradisiacal image that most only have the chance to dream about. But for Dave and Brennan, it soon became their reality. “What attracted us to Palm Springs was the weather, the scenery, and the mid-century modern vibe,” says Brennan. “Originally, this was just intended to be a vacation house, but we’re

After a brisk jog and a green juice this morning, we meditated, signed up to volunteer more and decided that we were finallllllly going to get around to investing more. Oh and budgeting. And no more impulse shopping. Also, meatless Mondays. Ooh and maybe we’ll clean out the closet. But a few weeks into the new year, our Netflix queue is calling, we’re back to hitting the snooze alarm and who left that pint of Ben & Jerry’s in the fridge?!  Staying motivated

Airbnb and other vacation rental services have completely changed the way we travel, allowing us to live like a local in locales around the world. But what’s often missing in these experiences is a hotel-worthy design. Airbnb owner Lauren Otero knew that her LA bungalow‘s look was far too basic for its funky Silverlake neighborhood. Due to the popularity of the area, she had solid bookings, but was making significantly less than the average nearby hotel’s per-night rates.  Could design be the culprit? She teamed up with designer James Tabb to find out, transforming the one-bedroom

Sleeping isn’t something that Meg Resnikoff does much of. Nearly any mom of three young children can sympathize, particularly one with a career like Meg’s. After graduating from Standford University, she went to work for large corporations in both San Francisco and Los Angeles, until she was struck by an “aha” moment that changed the course of her professional life. “After having my second child and being out of the corporate world for a number of years, I really wanted to do something I was passionate about. And there’s nothing I’m more

You never forget your first love, and that’s exactly what Venice Beach was for consultant, Lisa Finn. She moved to the bohemian beach enclave more than 17 years ago, enamored of the live-and-let-live lifestyle. “There was a real sense of community and acceptance there, and the diversity that existed was very stimulating,” she explains. But as the once laidback locale rapidly gentrified, Lisa began to feel that she had overstayed her welcome. Saying goodbye to the place that she had long called home felt like the end of an era,
