See this sweet client’s light and bright master bedroom reveal.
This post is way long overdue but I’m so happy to share it with you all. Last Fall, I worked with a sweet client on updating her master bedroom. With a new coat of white paint, some accessories and bedding, we were able to really give this space a beautiful transformation. Here’s how I styled it to give this amazing couple a light and bright master bedroom refresh.
Here’s where we started.
You can see that this master bedroom is on the larger size. The wife really wanted to continue using a designated area as her office. I advised them to paint the walls and give it a white coat of “Alabaster” by Sherwin Williams. They hired painters and that alone gave the bedroom a clean slate! You really can’t go wrong with white walls.
We kept the existing bed and matching pieces of furniture. The room looks and feels so much lighter and brighter am I right?
I chose some soft blues, creams and pinks for the bedding to give it a cozy and nautical feel. I love the artwork over the bed that is actually a framed puzzle that the family put together. They are quite sentimental so we incorporated many family heirlooms, photos and other special mementos into the bedroom.
We changed out the old lighting for a fan with a light fixture. I actually have the same fan in our family room and love it.
I kept the styling simple and went with some classic white ceramic lamps with a brass base.
I love using little decor boxes as a place to store jewelry, chapstick, lotion or glasses on the nightstand. It keeps everything in one place and the nightstands looking tidy.
Whenever you have open spaces as part of your nightstand, add a basket to keep it from looking cluttered.
I installed these gorgeous curtain rods and hung up these super affordable white linen curtains. Drapes always add softness to a space and elevate the room with that sophisticated finish.
The cute rocking chair is a sentimental piece passed down from family. These sentimental pieces add those special personal touches to the bedroom.
For the other end of the bedroom, I ordered this gorgeous rug with some muted colors.
Rugs help anchor furniture and create designated spaces. Because it’s one long space, we needed to partition the office from the bed and the rug does that effortlessly. I moved the desk to the center and turned the black file cabinet to the side so that the handles weren’t visible. Since the client couldn’t move it anywhere else, we had to improvise. Thankfully, it blends in with the other black dresser. Plus, she still has the ability to access all her important files in her office.
We added a pair of these wood and metal bookshelves to one side of the wall and I placed a bunch of baskets to help corral similar items. It helps to keep the shelves clean and organized. The baskets were from Homegoods and I especially like the ones with the lids. I’ve added all the sources to the bottom of this post for your convenience.
We kept the desk and chair because those were also sentimental pieces passed down to them. I did however reupholster the chair cushion because it was really tattered and needed an update. Changing out fabric is super easy and an inexpensive way to update any chair. I have a bunch of similar projects on the blog that you can check out.
Greenery always add so much color and life to a space. When using faux, I always try to buy the ones that look the most natural.
See how the rug helps to create a separate functional space without walls?
The bookshelves were styled with sentimental treasures like a tray and their framed wedding invitation.
The baskets on top provide additional useful storage for other miscellaneous items.
I always love adding a lot of texture through a variety of baskets, linens, rugs, etc.
I also suggested a new light fixture above the office space and we went with this rustic beauty. My clients did a great job installing all the new lighting!
Let’s take a final look at this transformation.
It was a true pleasure working with this family. They were so happy with the transformation which makes me love my job even more. It just feels so cozy and bright in here. What do you think of the reveal?
