So in full defense of my master bedroom, it isn’t done. Phew, glad that is out of the way!
In all seriousness, we have never prioritized decorating our bedroom. Our last home’s master was quite teeny, but we shoved this behemoth bed into it anyway (the majority of the time we lived in our last home I was pregnant, so naturally we needed the extra bed space #babybody). I am so happy to finally have a bedroom that will fit our bed! The nightstands were our anniversary gift to each other for our third anniversary (maybe? I can’t keep track anymore!). And that is pretty much it! We have lots of room to grow into this room so I am excited to start decorating! Now if only I could figure out my direction…
This room has a lot of potential; huge windows and plenty of space. It just needs a bit of…freshening. The house was pretty recently repainted, but the previous owners were reeeeally into tan. Not that there is anything wrong with tan, this particular shade is more on the green side and pretty dark. When the sun is down it is straight up olive green. So, needless to say, paint is high on my priority list! If only I could settle on a color. Suggestions are welcomed!
The carpet is also original (circa 2000) and has to go. It is white and really has seen better days. The carpet was professionally cleaned prior to us purchasing the home, and the edges are permanently stained and black. Our cat also decided to christen our move by throwing up all throughout our bedroom which has us heavily leaning in the direction of replacing the floors. The combination of it all won’t be touched by my carpet cleaner. Who would choose a white carpet anyway? Oh well, it has seen better days!
Here are some ideas floating in my head/Pinterest. I am still not sure of my vision. Sometimes it helps just to get started and be inspired from there! That may be my method with this room 😉
(Yes, I know the wall colors are all kind of crazy in each picture. They aren’t cooperative.)
If you follow me on instagram, I’ve mentioned how this “sitting room” will eventually become our closet. If you look at the current closet situation above, you’ll notice how awkward they are. Well, you probably can’t tell in a picture, but behind the row of clothes is the house’s eaves, so you have to crawl under the row of clothes to access more storage. First world problems, I know. We decided that instead of having wasted space next to our master, we would walk that in and make a nice walk in closet. Crossing our fingers we can do it this year! I’ll go into more details another time, but it is a project I am super excited about!
Toy (thanks Levi) as a reminder that I have children and taking clean house pictures is near impossible. I love them…
So pretty much a blank slate, which I am really excited about. And slightly overwhelmed. I can’t wait to see it come along! Any suggestions are welcome!
