Hello! It’s Courtney here today (Melissa’s daughter)! If you don’t know me yet, it’s nice to meet ya! I studied interior design in college and have worked full time for The Inspired Room as a creative director for the last several years! I’m always here behind the scenes assisting with the blog and our other projects. Dream job? Yes. :)

I currently live in Seattle in my very first apartment of my own. It’s an “open one bedroom” (basically a studio but with a partial wall separating my bedroom). I’ve lived here for a little over two years now and have absolutely loved having my own space.

Autumn is my very favorite season! Tomorrow on The Inspired Room we will officially be kicking off the annual Fall Nesting series!

Just like it has for hundreds of thousands of others over the past twelve years, my mom’s Fall Nesting series inspires me to prepare my home for enjoying the coziest season of all!

With this season in mind, today I wanted to share a quick tour of my studio apartment bedroom along with how I’ve recently cozied it up with my new linen bedding!

My bedroom is open to the rest of my apartment and one of the first things you see when you come inside, so I keep the decor simple and streamlined. A neutral palette is the perfect calming sight as I walk through the apartment, and is a versatile backdrop for adding layers or seasonal accents throughout the year.

The linen duvet with pom-pom trim was on my wish list ever since I moved into my apartment! When the family-owned company, Magic Linen, reached out to my mom to try their bedding, she surprised me by letting me pick out the linen bedding of my dreams for my birthday!

I spent a wonderful afternoon on Magic Linen’s site, so inspired by the beautiful photos as I considered every color option! I had admired Magic Linen’s beautiful bedding for years, so shopping for my own linen bedding really was a dream come true.

They have tons of beautiful colors that can be mixed and matched to create different looks. I loved the Woodrose color (a dusty pink). They even sell fabric samples if you want to try them out in your home!

It was so hard to make a decision as they are all so pretty, but I finally narrowed it down to the light grey duvet cover and Euro shams with white pom-pom trim, and the optical white sheets.

Happy birthday to me! I couldn’t wait to bring it home and set it all up after it arrived a few weeks ago.

I’m super happy with the colors I chose and how it all looks with the iron bed (this bed was my parents’, given to me when I moved into my apartment). It’s all as cozy and dreamy as I imagined it would be!

I also got two of the linen bolster pillows with pom-pom trim. I originally wanted these to put on either side of the daybed in my living room, but I love how this one looks in the center of my bed.

Magic Linen’s bedding is handmade from high-quality European linen. It’s super soft, breathable and moisture-wicking. It has the prettiest texture and details and is clearly made with care. I know I’ll have my set for a very long time.

One thing I really appreciated is that the duvet cover had ties in the corner to keep the duvet attached! Little things, you know?

I also realized once I made up the bed that since my iron bed frame is open, it allows me to see the pom-pom detail on the edge of the duvet! A happy accident. :)

My very favorite thing about my bedroom is how it gets flooded with natural light from the floor to ceiling windows in the connected living room. It’s a very cheery and peaceful space!

Now that my bed is made with such beautiful linens, I know I’ll be extra cozy in this room all season long.

Fun fact…when I was almost finished taking photos for this post, I tripped on my tripod, stubbed my pinky toe, and knocked over the mug on this cutting board…lol! It was quite a scene. Thankfully no bedding was harmed in the process. ;) But I was definitely limping around for two days afterward. All is well now, but I keep laughing that of all ways I could have gotten injured…it was tripping on a tripod while taking blog/Instagram photos! Ha!

    Just wondered if you happen to know the flooring brand and color? It’s almost as beautiful as your bedding! By the way, how is it to sleep on linen sheets?

    This is super cute and I love the not so glamorous behind the scenes insight of knocking the cup over! I love linen bedding so much, it was my first treat your self present when I moved into my first home after graduating to spend a silly amount on washed linen sheets – totally worth it though.

    Wow! Such a beautiful presentation. I just want to crawl right into the middle of that bed! That’s the best advertisement/photo spread I’ve seen for bedding in a long time. Everything looks so soft, old-worldly and serene. I’m heading on over to their site, cause a girl can never have enough pillows!

    Would you mind sharing what duvet you use? My current duvet is lumpy and I’m in need of a new one. Thanks!

    So beautiful. The flowers are nice pop of color. I love the linen it gives it that inviting feel. Simply beautiful

    This is so pretty, Courtney! 💛 I love the gray and there is nothing cuter than mini Pom poms. Such a great mix of cozy and timeless and fun. :)

    When is the bathroom tour? That should be the last of your apartment tour right?

    Love the twinkle lights to cozy up the iron too.

    I love the casually crinkly texture of linen. I need to remember this shop for when we need new bedding.
