You guys, I am smiling so big as I type this. My master bedroom makeover is done. And it’s incredible! You remember a few weeks ago when I came here and told you how the one room in my home that has always felt unfinished has been my bedroom? Well, no more! It’s finished and it’s everything I hoped it to be. Let me show you!
I started our room makeover when we moved into the Florida house (you can see our master bedroom in our previous house here). When I set out to finish my master bedroom, I really wanted a calm and serene space that felt a little bit luxurious. I wanted it to be a retreat but still feel lived in. We have two kiddos and honestly, we spend a lot of time right here. My daughter loves building a fort in all of the pillows, and usually at least once a day someone gets a case of the tickle bug and laughter ensues, always right here. Having a space that is pretty and well decorated yet completely livable for small kids was a must.
To refresh your memory, here was my mood board for the space. No surprise here that you see a lot of blues. I’m a sucker for blue.
The first thing we did was hang drapes on these huge windows. This photo doesn’t do it justice at all because these windows are enormous!
The other major player in this space was the paint free grid wall that we created. This wall is massive and the way I saw it was I could buy bigger furniture, or I could make this wall an accent wall of sorts so my furniture didn’t look dwarfed by it’s vastness. Since, buying new furniture was out, I went with the idea of an accent wall.
Inspired by grid style board and batten my blog buds [here & here] have featured in their homes, I decided on a grid design minus the wood. I didn’t want to create any wall feature that would be permanent.
Instead of the board and batten, I created a grid wall using Easy Stripe from Walls Need Love. Using the stripe decals allowed Matt and I to created this entire feature wall in a couple of hours. Check out the tutorial for this super awesome grid accent wall!
The Pottery Barn nightstands we built are perfection in this space!
In my mood board, I had selected three fabric patterns for throw pillows but the floral ended up not working because I didn’t love the weight of the fabric. I started to look for another fabric but I loved the simple mix of white and blue.
These prints from Minted are perfect for a small bedside gallery wall. I especially love the gold frames.
They go nicely with my brass round mirror. Which is just on the other side of the bed.
I’m pretty pleased with the way it turned out. It’s the blue and white oasis of my dreams for sure. With summer here I bet you are working on some DIY/room makeovers of your own – if you are tell me what you’ve got planned in the comments or over on Facebook or Instagram. Don’t forget I’m now on Snapchat [username: makinghomebase] which is quickly becoming my favorite form social media.
