Another day, another room wrap up from our last house! Today’s all about our moody master bedroom refresh. Not total makeover because the list I had for this space was LONG and we only got to the first 25% of it, but good enough to call the space done so we could get it on the market!
First up, let’s start with the before photos.
Perfectly peach and disorganized in every way 😛
The first thing on our list was to paint! We tried out swatches on just about every wall to see what we liked. We knew we wanted to go dark and moody because at the time, sleep was a rarity with a newborn. A dark cozy space sounded like heaven to us!
The final two colors ended up being Benjamin Moore’s Storm and Wolf Gray.
After staring at them through coffee fueled eyes for a few days, we decided on Wolf Gray! It was a fun gray blue color that gave off the cozy vibe we were going for. I highly recommend it for any size bedroom!
We also upgraded a few furniture pieces and picked out both the bed and nightstands on Wayfair. I knew I wanted a tan tufted and tall headboard, and these fun wood nightstands with the turned legs were the perfect size for the room.
The curtains were an Ikea find from last season, and the lamps we picked up in the mix and match section in At Home.
On this far wall (ignore me in the tv reflection! Blogger fail!) we just put this old buffet to hold our TV and fill out the wall a bit. We didn’t have any dressers because our closets were plenty big enough to hold our things, so one day I dreamed of putting a wall of builtins with an electric fireplace in the center. Maybe we’ll implement some of those ideas in this house instead!
I also had two huge window mirrors (shown in the before photos leaning by the window!) to hang above each nightstand to bounce around more light and balance out the dark paint, but kept it simple to sell the home and left them down.
Are you starting to sense a theme here? 😛 I had SO many ideas for this house that we never quite got to before selling (we only lived here for a year before we moved out of state for M’s job) but I’m excited to hopefully make this house even better and take a few of those ideas while designing this home!
And that wraps up the space! A dark and moody paint color, neutral bedding, shopping the house for accessories, and investing in a few new furniture pieces completed the master bedroom refresh. The end result is on the more simple side, but with a few added accessories could easily be more personalized!
