A Minimalist Montessori Home Tour: The Parents' Bedroom

 My husband and I LOVE our bedroom.  It's small yet airy, simple yet alive.  

No matter what time of day, or what's going on, it's a place we can go to relax, renew, and refresh.   

So long as we do our morning routines and Saturday cleaning when the kids do, it's a place that's always clean and picked up.

I'm so excited to continue our Minimalist Montessori Home Tour with the parents' room!

Plants

I am a huge fan of nature.  I find that plants, especially succulents, improve my mood and help me to stay as stress free as possible.  

Unfortunately I have kiddos who love to tear plants apart and fruit flies that tend to attack anything fresh and alive during the summer months.

To satisfy my need for plants, I've settled for faux plants.  

My favorite in the house is the large succulent wall art above my bed.  I'm not going to lie. At least once a week, I catch myself staring at it in admiration.  It brings me so much joy!

I also enjoy the potted ficus bushy tree in the corner as you enter the room.  It has withstood some pretty intense moments from Sunshine.

Bedding

When we moved into our home in Virginia, I decided to take a big risk and go with white as the main color for our bedroom.  

As I looked out on the hay fields in our back and side yards, with blue skies above, all I could think about was clouds.  

And so I went for it.  

Not once have I regretted that decision.  I LOVE our white bedding, sheets, curtains and walls.  

Everything is so bright and easy to clean!

Storage

At the end of our bed is an antique trunk made by my great grandfather and then updated and improved by my father.  This is where we store extra bedding for our room and the downstairs bed in the back room.

The dresser in the photo above stores ALL of my husband's and my clothing.  We each have our own drawer and then share the bottom one.  

I have been a huge fan of the Marie Kondo clothes folding method for years, which allows us to utilize the space in the dresser to the max.

Our Home Office

If I could change one thing about our bedroom, it would be to remove our home office, but for now this is the safest and best space to put it.  Thankfully it hides behind the bedroom door and out of sight.

This is where all of the printable creation magic occurs!

Under the desk you see our CPU and fire proof safe.  

On the desk there's a lamp for when we're working late at night, the rest of the computer, phone charging station for all of the kids' electronic devices and phones, and scrap paper storage.  (They check them in each night before bed, to ensure there are no issues during the night.)

Above the desk are three bookshelf cubbies that include our favorite Montessori, mental health, blogging and business books.  On top of one of the shelves is where I store my camera.

On the wall beside the desk is my white board monthly planner.

The dresser next to the desk is where we store:
  • Make Up, Nail Polish & Journals
  • Paper, Cardstock, and Portable Printer
  • Ink, Pens, Pencils, Highlighters, etc.
  • The Ultimate Montessori Planner & Other Important Homeschool Papers
  • Gift Bags & Tissue Paper
  • Important Photos
On top of the dresser are six beautiful votive candles and holders.

We absolutely love our bedroom, even though it pairs as a home office.  

The kids know that our bedroom is our space, just like their bedrooms are their specials spaces.  

There's nothing more calming than watching the sunset through our bedroom window while the curtains billow in breeze after a long hard day.
