We’ve slowly but surely been working our way around our home for the last two plus years, and while some rooms have made major progress, one of the spaces that we’ve talked so little about and spend so much time in has been almost completely neglected. Even if most of the time spent in there is with our eyes closed, our master bedroom could use a little TLC!
For this mini-makeover, we’re hoping to keep it simple but finally decide on a design plan, budget and are giving ourselves til the end of the week to finish. Fun fact, this room has been painted 3 (!!!) times in just 2 years. So this makeover is partly for me, and partly so I stop driving M crazy trying to piece together a room without having a plan. Think of this as the house flipping version of the One Room Challenge. Short and hopefully sweet.
Another totally rational reason as to why we’re doing this? Because I bought new curtains (another piece it together with no plan fail) that basically blended in with the dark charcoal accent wall (aka color #2 for that wall) which was the straw that broke the camels back. Or something like that 🙂 I decided to throw up a white flag and just commit to fixing up the room. We’re just going to call it the domino effect. M happily agreed.
So, with the curtains being our jumping off point, here’s how we see it coming together!
light // bed // bedding // paint – BM Simply White, Behr Wheat Bread // lamp & shade // curtains // white frame // wood frame
The lovely linen bedding we received from our wedding and the furniture is all staying, but we’re going to be refreshing that accent wall color to the same color as our main bath, Behr’s Wheat Bread, updating art, lighting and a few accessories. I’d really love a neutral space that’s light and bright, but yet still cozy. I’m hoping this plan will do just that!
We already got a start on the room this weekend and ordered that amazing light on black Friday to replace our brass boob fixture, which has turned into a full scale electrical and drywall project due to extensive damage when we removed it of course.
Just add years of dust and paint and you get the picture 🙂 Why have we lived with this thing for over 2 years again? I’m so excited to finally have a little retreat and to see the plan come together! See you back here for the reveal this weekend!
