As I have been looking at my old blog posts, I have a lot of rooms that have been updated or redecorated and haven’t been shared with you all. I also noticed that my pictures were not the best quality. I thought it would be fun to do a room tour of our house with updated pictures that are (hopefully) better quality pictures. Over the course of this month, I will be sharing pictures of different rooms in our home! You have already seen Eli’s toddler room, which you can read about here! I also shared Adleigh’s nursery with you, which you can see here!
Today I am sharing a peek into our master bedroom! I decided that I needed a color palette that worked for both myself and my husband. We went with navy, grey, purple and pops of yellow. Since the all color was already a deep gray, I thought I would add some lightness to the furniture, bedding, and curtains.
I started my search for the perfect duvet. I wanted something in a deep blue with some white to add some interest to the cover. I found a duvet cover I loved, so I searched the Internet to find that exact one, and after hours and hours of hunting for it, I found it from Bella Home Fashions: Urban Circles Collection. Then, I found this deep purple quilt while shopping around Bed Bath and Beyond. I knew it would go perfectly with the deep blues from the duvet cover so I picked it up and tested it out. And the DKNY plum quilt looked perfect next to the Bella Home Fashions duvet cover. I found some white bedding from Bed Bath and Beyond to add that neutral component to the bed. I just love how fluffy and cozy the bed looks! I just want to jump in and take a nap. Don’t you?
Once I was happy with the bed, I needed to find curtains for the space. I wanted something with depth, so I was looking for either a pattern, or thicker fabric with some texture. These basket weave curtains from Target were just perfect for adding texture to frame the bed. Since we don’t have a headboard, I was using the windows and Euro pillows to create the illusion of a headboard. The curtains would frame out the space, while the pillows would give it some height.
Since the walls were so dark, I decided to go with white furniture. It took me forever to find some that was exactly what I was looking for. I love the modern farmhouse style, so I didn’t want white furniture that looked too country, or too modern. I wanted a happy balance in between those two styles. I think I found it with these Farmhouse 2-Drawer Bedside tables from Pottery Barn. I decided to change out the knobs with some that we found from a local hardware store. I love how the knobs have a rustic element to them, and the contrast from the white bedside table and the metal knobs really makes the look.
We purchased lamps and lampshades from Target to bring some height and light to the nightstands. I also added some baskets under the nightstands to hold my magazines, books, and tablets. That way they don’t get all cluttered on the nightstand. Then I found a bench for the end of the bed from Home Goods. It was light colored, which worked in the room because of the wall color, the duvet cover, and the rug color. The rug we have is gray. It was originally used in my son’s room, but then we carpeted the bedrooms and we ended up with the gray rug. It works because it is a lighter gray.
Then I added some pictures to create a gallery wall on one side of the bedroom. I really like having the pictures of the kids when they were babies near my bed. I have one picture with the quote:
You will never have this day with your children again.
Tomorrow they’ll be a little older than they were today. This day is a gift.
Breathe, and notice, smell and touch them, study their faces and little feet, and pay attention
Relish in the charms of the present.
Enjoy today, mama, it will be over before you know it.
I love this because it is a wonderful reminder to be as present in the moment as I possibly can be. I like waking up with that quote every morning. On the other side of the bed, I have our wedding song lyrics on four different canvas. I printed the lyrics onto a large piece of paper, then cut them into four even pieces. I used Mod Podge to glue each piece of paper onto a different canvas. Then we hung the canvas into a square on the wall. It makes me happy to see those every day!
We also purchased the Farmhouse Extra-Wide Dresser to match our bedside tables from Pottery Barn. We also changed the knobs to match the bedside tables to match the bedside tables. Our television was sitting on our old dresser, so we decided to mount it on the wall. This gave us some space on top of the dresser to decorate. I started to decorate the space by putting my jewelry box in the middle of the dresser. I have my grandmother’s perfume tray to display as well. I decided to store all of our perfumes, colognes, and my ring holder on the tray. I just love having vintage, meaningful pieces to decorate with. And seeing the jewelry tray reminds me of my grandmother, which is always a nice reminder of her.
Then, I printed pictures and put them in black frames. I thought that the black frames would like nice since the television is black and we have a lot of white furniture in the room. Using a vase we got for our wedding, I added some fun, colorful fake flowers behind the pictures. Adding some candles and our date night jar, I think the dresser looks great.
Now you know all my decorating secrets behind how I decorated and styled our master bedroom. I really do love the navy, gray, purple, and pops of yellow look we have going on. I feel that the entire space fits our modern farmhouse vibe we have going on in the majority of the house. The kitchen doesn’t fit the description, but I’m trying!
