The plans for my master bedroom have gone through a few iterations since we moved in 5 years ago. You can see the progression of ideas here. The room sits at the front of my home and is south-facing, so it gets great light most of the day. My original plan was to create a moody, sophisticated space. Though I loved the dark paint color initially (Sherwin Williams Gibraltar), I’m over it now. Like the rest of my house, I want something brighter & lighter for this room. I’ve actually hinted to the new plan on Instagram over the last few months.
The leopard fabric (Bosana by Kravet) and this cute watercolor vase I found at Home Goods were the jumping off points for my design. Admittedly, I’m really trying to focus on finishing things I start, like my kitchen and my office/studio, so we don’t plan to begin this room anytime soon. We did go ahead and have all new carpet installed in the bedrooms a few weeks ago, which will work wonderfully with the color scheme I came up with. Though I’m not ready to get started on pulling the room together, I thought it would be cool to still share what I’m planning.
Of course I still can’t shy away from color, even though I’m going for a lighter & brighter feel in the room. The accent colors – coral, plum, & indigo – will play nicely against the light yellow/beige wall color. I’ll refinish the vanity/desk to a light, waxed wood tone. Light blue drapes, brass wall lamps, a wooden bead chandelier, and a soft-toned wool wall hanging will round out the space. Oh and of course some pretty greenery will make an appearance, as well.
I’m certainly excited about pulling this room together! I’ll be patient, though, and really buckle down to finish my incomplete projects before I get started…..I think. 😉
