We’ve lived in this house exactly one month now, and it’s time to tackle our modern master bedroom makeover. I’m participating in Casa Watkins’ “New Year New Room Challenge” along with lots of other great bloggers. On Instagram I shared this picture which is exactly where this room is at right now.
From a distance it looks pretty clean and fresh, but it’s got it’s share of issues. Issue #1= The Maroon mini blinds. Issue #2- No nightstand or shelf. Issue #3- No chair, bench, or anywhere to sit or set anything. #4- The bedding needs some pattern or texture. Just a month ago, this was the state of this bedroom:
It’s a nice bright room, but it didn’t have a light or a large enough closet. We fixed that immediately but adding this West Elm light and these Ikea wardrobes. We also painted the entire room and ceiling “Benjamin Moore Chantilly Lace”. Now it’s time to finish designing this space. The first thing I’d like to do is build a channel tufted headboard like this one or this one.
I’ll also be installing dark charcoal roman shades from Blindster. The maroon mini blinds just weren’t cutting it.
I hung some Target sconces that I already owned, but I’d love to swap them out for these ones.
I’d love to get a bench for at the base of the bed, this Article bench is my favorite, but I just can’t spend that much. Here are some of the other ones I like that are a bit cheaper.
I’d also like to add texture or pattern with the bedding. I really like the velvet trim comforter that I have on the bottom, but I’d like to find something to replace the plain black duvet cover. Here’s the two that have caught me eye:
I’ll be sticking with this rug that I still really love.
So after talking through everything, this is the mood board I put together. I just ordered both bedding sets and I’m just going to have to see it to decide!
If you’re looking to refresh your room for the New Year it doesn’t have to involve a total makeover. Maybe just some new bedding, a new light, or a new rug?! Or maybe it’s tackling a DIY like my headboard project! Thanks for following along!
