I’m so excited to finally be sharing our master bedroom with you guys! It’s definitely not the usual all-white (and gold) with-pink-roses blogger set up… which makes me very happy! This is the room where we rest and recharge and, given my sleep issues, it was important to me that it felt very simple and calming.
This room was a challenge for Shelby, my designer at The Havenly, because it’s a pretty tiny room but I can’t sleep well without a king-sized bed. Together, we made the small room feel bigger and more airy. The original design had gorgeous grey and white wall-paper which would have made it 100x cooler but Anel and I decided to keep the walls a solid color for the re-sale value of the house (adult things are so boring).
We kept the color palate pretty neutral with black, white, greys, and blues. These colors paired with the palest of pinks on the wall makes me feel instantly relaxed and happy. We did this room on a budget so kept our headboard and side tables (Last seen here, look how small Boots was!) but upgraded the rest.
The biggest change to the space was the rug. The last one felt kind of childish and was too small for the room, making the space actually look smaller. The more mature one that actually fits made a huge difference.
We also moved our Gray Malin print over a dresser at the foot of the bed so that we can look at it while reading before bed. I love that it’s the last thing I see at night because it conjures up a beautiful memory of my favorite day ever on our honeymoon in Amalfiâ€”the day we spent on a boat around the coast.
When Shelby first showed me these lamps with black lampshades I was skeptical, but now I think they pull the whole room together! I love how they draw your eye to the black in the throw pillow and the pants in the print. The ones we originally chose were over $300 each but I found an almost identical pair at One Kings Lane for $120 each. They look so high end in person, it’s insane.
For bedding, we moved back to Serena & Lily because they are just my favorite. The sheets feel so good without being too soft which I also hate. Their sheets and duvets are the perfect fabric and I don’t think I can ever go back to anything else now. You can see our last S&L set up in this post from our old apartment. Very different vibe, right?
I have a thing about redecorating my bedroom so although I know this isn’t permanent permanent, it’s here to stay for a while. I’m so happy with how it turned out.
