I thought I’d easeeeee on back into blogging today with a nice picture heavy post about “finding my style” and how that’s led to the slow change in our master bedroom.
When I first saw the house, this is what the now master bedroom looked like:
As much as I love teal, lime green, and glitter letters, I thought maybe we should change it up a bit…
So after a bit of getting settled, the room moved into it’s “work what you have” phase:
Not terrible, but we really needed new curtains, and all the decor was from our old apartment and didn’t really fit here. Also, having 4 animals and a comforter that didn’t fit in the washer was NOT an ideal situation.
Here’s what the master is looking like today, 2.5 years in:
This is quickly becoming one of my favorite rooms in the house.
It’s not going to be in any magazines, but I freaking love it. And I can honestly say I think this will be the direction my style goes into from now on- a little rustic, a little industrial, a little funky.
Let’s get close up:
Matt’s side of the bed
Sheepskin: Ikea | Nightstand: Target | Art: Etsy | Beetle: Target
Planter: Bath & Body Works (it’s a candle holder) | Fan: Amazon
My side of the bed. The art reads: “There is no denying the wild horse in us”
Curtains, Quilt, Nightstand, Chair, Lamp: Target
Throw: Marshalls | Candle: Somewhere in New Mexico | Art: Etsy
Bureau vignettes (if you can even call them that)
Skull: Styrofoam Halloween decor, painted gold | Tray: Target | Fox: Marshall’s
Swing Shelf: DIY from a friend | Art: Etsy | Muskrat skull: Ebay
Scented Thing-a-ma-bob: Amazon
So, basically most of my stuff came from Target- but MAN, Target is killin it in the home decor lately!! There’s one more wall I haven’t shown, but I’m still working on it. I’d actually like to build a piece of furniture for that wall, but I need to wait until there isn’t two feet of snow outside so I can stain in a ventilated area.
I’ve really learned, after decorating this whole house, that I need to appreciate wood. That I don’t care if I have multiple tones of it in the same room. And I really want to work on a gathered, eclectic look. I’m feeling super inspired by White Buffalo Styling Company and want to move more in that direction. That being said, I’m not going to go nuts redoing everything I’ve already put together in my more modern/trendy rooms… but when we move to house #2 down the line, I at least have my starting point.
