We totally transformed our Master Bedroom suite into a beautiful sanctuary that makes both my husband and myself happy! In my previous post about planning and making over this room, I touched on the fact that my husband really wanted to be included in this room with touches of masculine here and there.
Once the hardwood floors were installed and we completed painting, he really stressed the fact that he wanted to be included in the design process, which I thought is so cute! The rest of my house is my territory and he allows me to decorate it how I wish, but this domain (and our recording studio) were his – he staked his claim!
I completely respect that and after all, that is what marriage is about, compromise and coming together as a team.
Our bed was the main focal point of the room. We purchased it 10 years ago at American Signature Furniture in Brentwood, TN and it was our first (and maybe only) splurge purchase. Trent and I are both tall (he’s 6’3″ and I’m 5’10”) and we needed a bed that would allow him to sleep comfortably.
I added this painting my father in law painted for me with my favorite flower, the hydrangea. I paired it with a hope chest that came from my great grandmother, but this is just temporary. I have another piece that is being used elsewhere that I will eventually place there.
The huge bed is a gorgeous masculine statement to the room, but I added a feminine touches with matelasse bedding.
Lighter walls make it seem brighter, but the darker curtains bring back in the touch of masculinity. They are a shiny silk with adds that balance of boy vs girl.
We are reusing the curtains in this space from our previous home, since new curtains weren’t in the budget. The curtains were too long, so I used the rod clips and folded them over until they were at the desired length.
You can’t even see the fake hem.
So I have to address the faux floral arrangement. I’m usually not a fake flower kinda girl, but the space was bare due to our future plan for that wall.
On the other side of that wall is our stairway with a hidden bathroom that is poorly placed in the house. We are going to gut the bathroom and close the existing door on the other side. Then we’ll open this wall and create a second master closet which will hopefully increase our home value!
Spray painting door knobs and hinges and changing out dated outlets and light switches is an easy and inexpensive way to bring a house up to date.
Trent also spray painted our floor vents as well – and they look so handsome!
His nightside drum table is simple with an vintage cobalt blue and pewter jar that was in his house growing up.
My side has more feminine touches with a candle a a sweet picture of my boys when they were little.
From dark and dreary to bright and welcoming,
from dated and dirty to fresh and clean,
and from yellowed trim to white and fresh.
We love the transformation and I have a few more touches here and there that I’d love to add down the road, but for now, it’s peaceful and serene and both of us are happy!
