Our Master Makeover
SHOP OUR MASTER BEDROOM:
And my home tour continues… I am super duper excited to share our master bedroom makeover with everyone. I have to say that this is one of my absolute favorite rooms in our home. I’ve always completely neglected our bedroom because I felt like no one ever sees it and well, it honestly usually stays a complete disaster. This time around I was so excited and inspired by the large room and beautiful fireplace that I decided to tackle it first. I had started to renovate our bedroom in our former home so I had a little bit of a head start with the headboard and bedding. Fortunately/unfortunately the master in our new home needed a little help to coordinate with my design plans. As I talked about in previous posts, our home was originally every shade of brown, tan and orange…
So paint was absolutely FIRST on my list! I have a tad obsession with color so I tried to keep most of our home a neutral base using “shades of gray” on the same Sherwin Williams paint card. Once I saw the name of this deeper tone I knew it would be perfection for a master bedroom…

With such a large room, space planning can be a little overwhelming. First of all, I almost always suggest having the bed oriented to be seen from the doorway when possible. The bed can be such a beautiful focal point in a room so I love seeing that right when you open the door whether it be on a wall opposite the door like ours, or on a wall visible from the doorway. Once the bed was in place and centered along the back wall, I wanted to create nooks to make the space feel more quaint and comfortable. First, we placed our largest dresser on the long empty wall adjacent to our doorway. The wall is so long that I also flanked the dresser with two chairs. Although I am not completely finished with this area of the room, the basics are in place. These chairs were in our dining room before so for this room, I had them recovered to coordinate with our bedding. And yes, those are sconces above the chairs and yes, they are still empty. I keep thinking about painting them but can’t quite decide!
Once again, with such a large wall on the bed side, I wanted to “extend” the width of the bed visually with large bedside tables. I found this gorgeous vanity table and mirror at a local antique store and thought it would be perfect for my side of the bed! Not to mention the fact that I was able to relocate all of my “getting ready” essentials to this piece and save some bathroom space. That’s a win win for me and my hubby!
Once this was complete, I wanted to extend the visual of the bed out to take up more floor space. I am telling you this room is huge and awkward and needed all the help it could get to not look like a bowling alley. I found this amazing gray bench at HomeGoods and placed it at the foot of the bed. I had used this piece in our breakfast room in our former home and loved finding a place for it here too! I have a little bit of a love/hate relationship with the bench as it has now become our hamper.
And now to the fun part! Did I mention that I LURVE color?!? I mean really though… Does it not make you so happy to see bright beautiful pops of color? Well, it definitely does me and this color combination is pure eye candy. I found this gorgeous fabric HERE (Suzani Harmony/Red) and it was my inspiration for the room. Since our walls are a cool gray, using this fabric as an accent with a warm red really POPS!
I wanted a really enormous bed. Like really, really huge so after searching here, there and everywhere with no luck I designed this headboard and had it custom made using this fabric HERE (Dupioni Snow White). It is a 7′ tall king sized headboard with 12″ sides. And I am happy to report that I am obsessed with it. Obsessed. From there it was all just accessorizing and decorating!

Thanks for touring our master bedroom!
