Master bedroom: before

I saved the listing photos from when I first saw the house… here’s the master bedroom as I first viewed it!

master bedroom before: blue walls

Once I moved in, I could see I had a lot of work to do.

I gave it a coat of paint and replaced the carpet, but my style evolved over time to need  brighter, calmer space.

(As you can see, I have been busy working on other rooms like the master bathroom and master closet, too.)

So, I came up with a new plan and am working on the new design as we speak!

Master bedroom: mood board

See the post here all about my plans on making over the master bedroom. I’m actually planning to create that live edge headboard myself!

Master bedroom: progress

So far, I’ve added new paint, bedding, layered new rugs, frosted the lower half of the windows, and built a new king-sized floating bed to make room for my boyfriend, Charlie, and Stella.

More on the way, such as a feature wall (we need some COLOR!), a plant shelf, more window treatments, a custom headboard, and lots of other ideas!
