Master Bedroom Ideas

With our new home, I'm looking forward to giving a new life into old furniture pieces by pairing them with different decor. Our master bedroom is the perfect example of this. Here it is what it looked like in Chicago:



And here is what I hope it will be in Texas!


I want to give a whole new look to our 7 year old Z Gallerie tufted bed, black dresser, and nightstands (similar to those pictured in the mood board above) by:
  1. Changing the color palette with a new coat of paint on the walls - We chose a dark blue (Sherwin Williams' Refuge) for the focal wall behind the bed and a light gray (Sherwin Williams' Light French Gray) for the rest of the walls.
  2. Swapping out the old rug (which will be repurposed in our dining room) with a new one - I'm loving this graphic rug from Home Decorators above. It is a great way to incorporate a 3rd accent color, the mustard yellow, into the room.
  3. Upgrading the bedside lamps - Our old lamps were a touch too small paired next to the king sized bed so I was looking forward to getting some larger ones. Lamps are also a great opportunity to add a pop of color so I snapped a pair of these yellow Threshold lamps from Target as soon as I saw them.
  4. Incorporating some new inexpensive art and accent pillows - I'm on the hunt for some fun accents to add some more color and pattern to the room. I'm thinking of incorporating a little bit of a feather motif (although I haven't passed this by Ross yet, so we shall see)
  5. Adding a a DIY touch or two - I have an idea I want to try out involving a tablecloth and a big piece of plywood. Stay tuned! ;)
