My bedtime routine definitely needs a sleep makeover! I came up with 3 huge areas I could improve my bedroom to make sleep more inviting: scent, mood lighting, and sleepy sounds. Keep reading and watch the video above to see how I did my sleep makeover with scented oil warmers, LED candles, and a sound machine!
It seems like since I moved to California, I haven’t been getting enough sleep because I don’t go to bed until very late. I needed to find out ways to make myself more likely to go to bed earlier, and started with brainstorming different ways I could make my bedroom more inviting.

The scented oil warmers and plug-ins I got are:
- Febreze Set and Refresh
- Glade Plug-Ins scented oil lasting impressions plug-in warmer (double)
- Glade Plug-ins scented oil warmer (single)
- Glade Plug-ins scented oil Apple Cinnamon
The LED candles are battery operated and have a 4 hour timer setting. I found them at Target in a set of 3 for about $20. They are made of real wax and are vanilla scented, so they look just like real candles. They even flicker like real flames!

I love to do my home décor brainstorming by meandering through furniture stores, vintage boutiques, and antiques shops to spot those inspiration pieces that can design a whole room in my mind in an instant! My Fall Shopping Loves for you today holds a bunch of pieces that, strangely, would help complete the same look for several rooms.
What better pieces for Fall to stumble across than sage green and grey / silver shabby furniture and accent pieces? I went window shopping and brought back photos of some of my new shabby home décor loves below. Enjoy!
Above, the Paula Deen “Bring Comfort home Collection” showcases a beautiful grey distressed armoire.
I love love love the silver velvet sectional sofa! If the metallic color and boxy corners seem too modern for your country or shabby décor, keep in mind that you can soften the look of this sectional by adding different décor pillows or even vintage quilts as throw blankets.
Are you crazy for the contemporary versatility of grey and white with the softness of patterns? This cozy retro comforter may be just what your bedroom is wanting:
The tricky drawers in this piece look like mother of pearl and give the illusion of many small drawers. Alas, the panels on the front represent a dresser with just a few larger drawers. This light and classy piece is a great storage solution and a great artistic statement for your home décor.
The sage green shabby country wine rack says distressed with flair:
Seriously – what room couldn’t you put this distressed ivory cabinet in? It could blend in perfectly to any shabby dining room, kitchen, or even a bedroom or walk in closet!
Love this explorer pillow with vintage map. The textures of the fabric and intricate design work make it a conversation piece on any sofa or chaise.
The Chocolaterie Confisterie décor storage box is perfect for any room of the house. Might I suggest a dining room sideboard behind a vintage tea set?
Don’t be afraid to whip out that camera during your shopping trips and snap photos of your Fall Shopping Loves! Add them to your decorating inspiration binder to look back on when you need a spark for a room redesign.
I’ve loved Poinsettias for as long as I can remember, and after I found the Christmas poinsettia cottage I knew I wanted to do a whole Christmas in a poinsettia theme.
For Christmas 2010 (yes, this was last year’s beauty that I’ve been hanging on to!), I decked out our brand new home in poinsettia fare, including one dedicated Christmas tablescape that even had my new poinsettia dishes by Better Homes and Gardens.
The table looked almost too pretty to eat a meal at! The red stemware was paired with my red satin poinsettia napkins.
Metallic red chargers served as the bottom layer for our gorgeous plates and rested atop my red satin poinsettia placemats with metallic red and green leaves.

For us busy parents, the weekend getaways may be few and far between. However, you don’t need to have a weekend away to enjoy a relaxing bubble bath in your own bathroom retreat if you’ve created an elegant bathroom!
Head into a luxurious retreat alone or with your spouse for a relaxing bubble bath. Bring along some wine and strawberries or a cup of soothing tea to invoke the spa retreat feeling!
Like the master bedroom, the master bathroom is one place you just can’t hold back on when it comes to luxury and design. Make sure your master bathroom has extra fluffy towels, a hidden mp3 player for soothing classical music, and an oversized hotel-style robe with matching slippers to complete your spa-at-home retreat!
