This summer Mike and I moved into our forever home, and are so excited to start decorating!
We’ve lived in a few homes over the years, but this is the one we plan to stay in for a long time, and that means this is the one we’re going to decorate just right! We never put a whole lot of effort into decorating our previous homes, I think because we knew they weren’t going to be permanent. But this time it’s different! We’re going to make this one our own!
I’ve always been in love with wooden, rustic design, so my hope is to fill all the rooms in our new home with rustic pieces (over time).
The first piece to start us on this journey of making our forever home truly ours, was with a new king size bed!!
(We need a king size bed because all four of our animals sleep with us! lol)
There are some great local furniture makers in the Edmonton area, including the focus of this blog post:
Note: This is a partially sponsored post, as we received a social media discount for the custom king size bed we commissioned with Grace & Grain, in exchange for a social media review of the product!
Grace & Grain Design Co. is a two-person team based in Nisku, Alberta just south of Edmonton. Mercadez and Taylor specialize in beautiful farmhouse style furniture, making wooden, rustic pieces like beds, dining tables, coffee tables, console tables, end tables, storage bins and more—which is perfect for the style/design that I’m looking for in our home!
Scroll down for a code you can use to get 15% off your Grace & Grain orders too.
When you work with Grace & Grain, you tell them what type of piece, colour and design you want (based on their previous collection, or based on pieces you might have seen elsewhere, in the rustic farmhouse style).
They’ll provide an estimate based on your preferences, and then get going on the build, which for us took about 3-6 weeks.
And that’s it! Working with Grace & Grain was really easy and the end product?
Well, we love our new bed!
This bed is exactly what I wanted and it’s my new favourite furniture piece in our home.
Though, full disclosure: We did have one negative experience with the bed—when we were setting it up, the slats it came with weren’t strong enough to hold us after we did our shake/weight test. One of the wooden slats broke!
So Mike went and picked up a few thicker 2×4 slats for more reinforcement and it’s been all good.
Mercadez said they had never seen that happen with their slats before, but Mike felt it needed some vertical slat action.
(We shared the feedback with them, but just something to also note or ask them about when you’re ordering!)
It’s amazing how a piece of furniture can make you feel so good every time you look at it lol.

Getting this piece also has me super excited to start designing and adding more furniture to the home!
I wish I could do it all instantly but that’s not financially realistic (even with a social media discount lol) so if you love home decor posts, I promise you there will be more coming, but at a slower pace.
I’m thinking we’ll add an Instagrammable Wall (you know I love those!) to the bedroom next—a feature wallpaper that will go really well with the new bed (we didn’t really notice the walls were green until the bed got in there lol).
Thanks to my awesome Instagram followers, we’ve got some ideas for bedroom wall paint colours to explore too!
What else would you add to the bedroom? What do you think about farmhouse style decor? Do you want to see more home / decor posts on the blog? I’ve still got a new office, bonus room, living room and basement as rooms to complete over the next few years as well, so this is going to be some long-term content! Haha.
Disclaimer: We received a partial social media discount for our bed from Grace & Grain Design Co. Part of the cost of the bed was discounted in exchange for a social media review. This has no impact on opinions stated in this post. I’ve wanted rustic wooden furniture pieces in my home for years and years and am so thrilled with the King size bed made by Grace & Grain Design Co.!
