Master Bedroom Refresh & Reveal
If you follow me on Instagram, I've been talking a lot about the little things I've been doing to spruce up our master bedroom. When we moved in to this new house, our bedroom was a little haphazard as I was busy having fun decorating the main level. But I still really wanted our bedroom to feel a little more cohesive and cozy (this was my inspiration). I knew I wanted to refresh things on a budget, and I also knew that I didn't want to paint.
I know beige isn't really "on trend" anymore, but I actually love how everything turned out. We already had a lot of items with similar color palettes and tones, it was just a matter of pulling them all together.
Our headboard I purchased before we got married for $15 at a thrift store. It's still one of my favorite finds to date. The IKEA bedspread I've had since high school, I still love it and it continues to hold up to its purpose. This rug actually came with the house! It is in great condition, and after looking at how expensive rugs cost, I would call this a total score. It was in one of the guest rooms and I decided to move it on a whim, hoping it would tie the headboard & walls together. Its definitely unique, but I like the different patterns that come together. It doesn't feel too overpowering since there are so many other neutrals. The rug isn't quite so brown in person.
Really the only things I purchased specifically for the redo was the fur throw which I got on clearance for $14. The lamps were $24.99 a piece at TJ Maxx, and the white bed pillows & throw pillow-- also from TJ Maxx. I had my first experience with chalk paint, using it on the dresser, and am completely in love. It was so incredibly easy. Here's what the dresser looked like before. I don't have any before photos of this current space, but this was our master bedroom when we were apartment living -- you'll notice a lot of similar things!
Our master bedroom actually has a really great sitting room (ignore the mess -- aftermath of photoshoots!), our room used to be a 2 separate small bedrooms but the wall was taken out to create a 'master suite'. This is going to be my next project. I plan to keep my vanity & the tan chair there, but I'm just not quite sure how I want to arrange the rest of room. I would love to create some built-ins flanking the window and have been looking at inspiration like this and this.
Overall, I love how it all turned out. It feels so much cozier and definitely more conducive to relaxing. The home didn't need any "remodeling" or work done when we bought it, so I am getting to enjoy to most fun part of decorating and creating!
