I love this light and refreshing bedroom decor by Amanda Barnes Interior Design and photographed by Alyssa Rosenheck. Waking up in this space would be so rejuvenating. I really favor a nice simple refreshing bedroom like this one for making the waking up process so much better.  This well edited and simple room definitely proves less is more. The added character of the natural tone Restoration Hardware Caned Bed and the pinstripe throw with the pom poms are the the perfect combination to the faded blue rug.  See more details below!

San Francisco has been on my mind lately and I’ve been spending some time looking into rentals.
