Eric and I recently gave our master bedroom a little update, and by update I mean I changed everything except for the carpet (because Eric said no on new floors). So we redid everything, from the paint to the window treatments. I am so happy with how it turned out and beyond excited to finally share it with you guys!
We bought our original bedroom furniture right after we got married and it was big and dark. Our bedroom was dark and boring and I absolutely hated the tan walls. I told Eric I wanted to update our room when we moved into our home a year and a half ago, but clearly it took a lot of convincing. An update was long overdo so I'm pretty excited it's finally done!
I've heard from several people that you should make your bedroom a sanctuary for you and your spouse. That you shouldn't include photos of your children or make it a regular space for them to be. Let's just say I did the opposite of that :). Our bedroom is the hub of our upstairs. We bathe the girls in our big soak tub, get them ready in our room, and often let them roll around and jump on our bed. I included family photos and tried to create a space that was beautiful, but also functional for all of us.
Without further ado...
The first thing we did was paint our room. We chose the color whisper white from Behr paint and hired Roberts Painting and Restoration to do the job. They did such a great job.
I LOVE our new king size bed. It's so conformable and BIG! We went from a queen to a king and I will never ever go back! We chose an upholstered headboard and I love it way more in person than I did online (plus it's so reasonable!). I purchased our quilt on clearance and couldn't find it online, but this one and this one are similar. For the first time ever I purchased really nice sheets and they seriously feel like heaven, I will definitely buy another set! Having nice sheets makes me feel like such a grown up :).
As you know, I am a lover of all things handmade, so I definitely wanted to include some handmade pieces in our bedroom. Fancy Face Studio made us the most perfect neutral tassel garland that I put above our bed. I love how fun it is, yet still grown up enough to be in our master bedroom.
Hands down, my favorite items in our master bedroom are the "love you more" and "love you most" paintings that hang on either side of our bed. I actually have three pieces of art from Home Spun Signs in our room because I am crazy obsessed with everything in their shop! I purchased simple nightstands and lamps with gold accents from Target (this lamp is super similar and I absolutely love it).
Our room is pretty neutral with lots of white, so I added a few pops of color here and there to keep the room fun and interesting. I chose a colorful abstract painting to hang over our dresser. We switched out the knobs on our dresser to make it fit within the space. A few family photos, fresh flowers, and a cute gold tray completed our dresser and I love how it all looks together (similar tray here).
Eric's only request was that he had a chair in our room so I purchased a wicker chair and ottoman that fit's perfectly in the corner of our room. I found the adorable yellow pom pom blanket on the giftagram app.
I love getting ready while sitting at my new dressing table. I found a cute clear acrylic chair and hung a gold mirror above. Sloan probably sits at my dressing table more than I do pretending to do her makeup, let's just say it's getting a lot of use!
Ok, ok I know it's not the most stylish thing to have a TV in your room, but I love laying in bed and watching movies as a family. Every Friday night we have movie night in our bed and I wasn't willing to give that up for the sake of aesthetics. So we put a console under the TV and it's actually a really functional piece of furniture. We keep the cable box and dvd's in it, as well as extra blankets and a little basket that I keep diapers, wipes, and lotion in.

I hope that you've enjoyed seeing our master bedroom makeover! I am so happy with how it turned out and love enjoying it with my family!
