As I wrap up the last few projects in the nursery, I am gearing up to do some updates in our  master bedroom.  We used to pride ourselves on always having a well-designed bedroom.  For many people it is the last room they decorate, because they focus on the more public living spaces in the home.  Well, recently we have fallen in that trap too and our bedroom in the new house has suffered.  I am ready to freshen it up and create a more finished look.

Sleeping Quarters:

This first mood board is pretty simple, because we already have some good bones in the room.  We already have an amazing upholstered bed from Room & Board in a golden yellow fabric.  We have good quality case goods (dressers and nightstands) from Z Gallerie.  I used to work at the Minnesota store (may it R.I.P.) and purchased them with my employee discount.

This is our fourth house and one thing that has always been consistent is the basic color scheme for our master bedroom.  In the first house we owned, we painted the walls a pale buttery yellow and had opulent plum bedding.  To bring the color scheme current with our design aesthetic, we have introduced black, white, and light blue.  Our bedroom walls are a pale blue, called Love-In-a-Mist by Martha Stewart.  Deep aubergine sheets on the bed introduce the purple color and looks regal with the black and white comforter.  The golden yellow upholstered headboard introduces a complimentary color for the purple, while maintaining a serene almost beach-like feel against the pale blue walls.

Master Bedroom Mood Board

Kajsastina fabric – Ikea, I bought 7 yards…I think this fabric is going to make stunning curtains

Orchard Pitcher Vases - Crate & Barrel, these will help fill the volume of space on top of a tall chest of drawers

Baroque Bedding – Dwell Studio for Target

Organic Cotton Sheets in Purple – Target

Songe Mirror – Ikea

Arteriors Tortoise Silver Bottle Neck Table Lamp – Layla Grace, this lamp is gorgeous, but pricey.  I want to add it our something similar on top of the chest of drawers with the orchard pitcher vases.

Sitting Area:

This second mood board is a bit more aspirational.  I created it for the Which Settee? Guest Post I wrote for Satori Design for Living.  I would eventually like to make space in the room for a wonderful sitting area like this.

      Los Johnsons,

      We were worried about the white, but since it is machine washable it has not been an issue. I was also worried about the grellow piping around the edge. Grellow is not exactly in this room’s color scheme, but it is hardly noticeable and looks almost yellow in the room. They also have a matching rug in white or black!
