In the past few months, I have slowly been making over our bedroom. We’ve lived in our home for almost two years, and it’s time the master bedroom received some attention.
It’s a beautiful room architecturally, but it also poses some difficulty with decorating. The main wall is windows – from ceiling to floor. I’ve had our bed on almost every wall, and finally decided to just embrace the beautiful windows and put the bed in front of them. I love to see the bed when I first walk in. I assume this has to do with my crazy need for symmetry, and the bed in the center of the windows balances the space for me which makes me happy!
My vision for the space is elegant and relaxing with a soft color palette.
The picture below is the before.
The walls were a greenish beige (I forgot to take a photo before I painted the room earlier this summer). I remembered when I was almost done painting, and this is all I have:
Apparently I was a little too excited to get that paint on the walls!
My next big change was the bed. Our previous bed was with us for over a decade, and it was a complete set – bed, dresser, nightstand and armoire. I was tired of my showroom-perfect matching set, and I had my heart set on a tufted bed. I considered stealing the painted tufted headboard from our guest room, but I had designed the entire room around that headboard. After a lot of online searching, I ended up finding a great deal (I stacked several coupons) on a tufted headboard from Target.
I also swapped out the patterned window treatments for some cream shears and velvet ones. And I switched out one of the nightstands for an Antro-inspired IKEA hack I had made.
You can see all the details HERE.
It’s a constant work in progress, but I’m getting there!
