Our bedrooms in our old house were never gave much attention too. Maybe because we always had a “we’re selling this place soon” attitude. We never had that feeling of wanting to make the bedrooms a place to hang out. The moment we bought this house, we wanted each bedroom to actually feel like a bedroom. We wanted the kids rooms to have their own special touches – unlike our prior house their rooms were constantly staged. Our new master bedroom had all of the outlines to hold many bells and whistles we wished for.
We wanted our master bedroom to feel like a getaway. A room that felt like an ADULT space – not left overs of whatever crap we had to toss together. Somewhere between buying our first and second home and lack of sleep with kids in between, we realized that a couples bedroom deserves to be great. A good nights sleep can refresh a parents mojo like nobody’s business.
This room required the basic steps of The Thome Home touches – white trim, fresh paint, and wood floors. We got started on that right away, leaving us with an already impressive before and after.
über dirty cat pee stanched carpet ^^ glorious wall stamping that made it look like a school-house and the never-ending red trim. So long, my enemy.
D.T. always popping in to check on the progress. One the floors went in we felt a huge sigh of relief. A pat on the back that these spaces were coming together.
After these updates were made, we were able to get a better grasp on what we envisioned for this space. We’ve always chatted about wanting a tufted headboard. We fell completely smitten for the bedroom in the “The Change Up” flick – their bed looked beyond comfortable and we wanted to upgrade! We wanted a look more like this …
This entire room screams comfort to me. And something about that wallpaper/wains coating combo makes me grin ear to ear. While I haven’t convinced Dan to jump on the wall paper train yet – I know a few more ideas from this room will be easily added!
We ordered our bed via WayFair – http://www.wayfair.com/Skyline-Furniture-Wingback-Bed-531-532-533-534-SKY2716.html and when it arrived we were pleased to find that is was just as gorgeous online as it was in person! Not only were we able to put it together in a few hours, it is extremely sturdy + impressive.
Adding a king size bed was a must in our new room. Not only are Dan and myself big fans of sleep – our two lovely littles like to join us and crush us in our sleep. So more space would lead to easier nights.
Would you like to see it in our room now?
I wish our bedroom had better lighting, but the fact is that our house is a dark cave most days. The end tables were given to us years ago by Dan’s sister – sanding and a few coats of white paint later and this once icky orange end tables are looking much better!
As you can see – the fabric wraps around the entire base of the bed – and it is as durable as it is pretty.
The navy sheets are Nate Berkus – the comforter and white shams are Threshold from Target – and the throw pillows are from HomeGoods! The lamp bases are from Target as well as the shades, Nate Berkus via Target I found on clearance way before we had this room in mind.
I love blue. Everyone who knows me, knows that. The navy lamp shades were only $12.50 a piece on sale from $25 – I had to snag em’
The beaded detailing down the wingback part of the bed is to.die.for. The simplest additions that make such a difference –
I love where this room is headed. We need curtains, art work, a rug and a new dresser – but for now, I am so content with how fantastic this bedroom is feeling.
