Doesn't everyone want a Master bedroom that has the ambiance of a luxurious retreat? It's the last room we see before we drift off to sleep so it should feel relaxed and peaceful. It doesn't take a lot to give your room a lift. Consider colors that appeal to you and start with an inspiration piece. That's what my daughter, Ashley did when she found the flower pillow above on Etsy. It was just the look she wanted for her room redo.
When Ashley and her husband moved into their 3-story condo, they had one small daughter with another one soon to come. They were busy parents working and running around after two little girls. They set up a bedroom for the girls and multiple play spaces, but their room wasn't at the top of the list. When their youngest daughter started sleeping all night in her own room, they were excited because now it was time to create the Master bedroom retreat they had always dreamed of!
These before pictures were snapped after we started taking the bedroom apart (It's so easy to forget to take the before pics when you're excited to get started.)
As you can see, the room isn't very big and their California King sized bed takes up most of the space.
Here's a 3-D rendering of the new layout.
Here's the rendering of the closet side of the room. I forgot to take an actual picture of this area, but it basically looks like this. Placing the dresser into the closet frees up more floor space. We took the doors off so we placed a curtain panel up to hide the hanging clothes. White baskets from Ikea were placed across the whole top shelf for more storage. A nightstand holds their TV for viewing from the bed.
This close up picture of one of the lamps shows the cute white and gray print, perfect for this room!
There's a vaulted ceiling which helps the room feel much more open. We brought the dark gray onto the window wall as well for contrast. I love how it looks with the crisp white drapes.
Ashley picked out this cute fabric that I used to create a wall-mounted headboard.
Above the bed we hung baby pictures of the girls underneath the silhouettes that I made for Christmas. You can see a post about the silhouettes here. We painted the frame on the large family picture bright yellow for a great pop of color against the wall.
Other touches of yellow stand out against the wall color too.
This room has become the peaceful retreat that my kids so deserve. Ashley said they feel like they're in a luxury hotel when they go into the room. That's a feeling everyone deserves after a long and tiring day!
Next up...we're bringing this same color scheme into the attached bathroom. Stay tuned!
