We have a new look in the master bedroom!
I have finally finished the master bedroom refresh and I wanted to show you the final result.
I started changing a few things in this room right after the first of the year, and it’s taken me several months to finally get it completed. We have so many projects going on simultaneously, that it seems like it takes forever to get one completed, but this master bedroom refresh is finally completed!
New bedding made a big impact from the previous neutral palette. Changing the bedding is an easy way to get a brand new look in a bedroom. This bedding has gorgeous soft colors with a beautiful design that reminds me of Italian Florentine.
The balloon bedskirt is new as well, and it pairs beautifully with the Regency Tapestry coverlet and shams.
A new rug is now gracing the floor of the master bedroom. It’s a woven jute rug, with a soft braided texture. It feels so good to walk on it with bare feet!
When I ordered the rug, I wasn’t completely sure about the pattern but now that it’s on the floor, I love it!
Another big change is that I changed the drapes. When we initially renovated the master bedroom, I hung drop cloth curtains, and they’ve worked fine for the last three years.
But for this refresh, I wanted to replace them with something lighter.
I found the perfect drapes at IKEA, and I absolutely love them! They’ve brought such a brighter look to the room, and they are a great price at $24.99 a pair! The curtains lower the general light level and provide privacy by preventing people outside from seeing directly into the room. I have loved using drop cloths for so many projects around the house, including using them as curtains, and I’m sure I will use them again. But it’s hard to beat the price for the Ritva curtains from IKEA, and the quality is wonderful!
We also replaced the bedside lamps with an architectural style lamp with an acanthus design. They’re smaller than the lamps that we previously had here, but again, I love the lighter look that they bring to the space.
The French Provincial bench, now recovered in a blue buffalo check, sits at the foot of the bed, and the petite french loveseat was moved to the front windows.
I had previously thought that I would re-upholster the loveseat in the blue buffalo check as well. But I decided that I really liked it in it’s original neutral fabric. This way, it’s more versatile, and will work in other rooms if I decide switch things around.
The pair of petite Louis XV cane chairs that I recently recovered sits at one end of the bedroom now. The stencil that we added gives them such a whimsical look.
Of course, we added a few new pieces to the bedside tables, and moved a few things around, but I think we are finally finished with this refresh (even if it did take me five months!).
