My master is looking a little dated. Everything in warm colors. A lot of gold (what the hell was I thinking) — I didn’t want to spend a fortune on new furniture, because frankly it’s still in good shape and it was a neutral enough purchase that just swapping out the bedspread and buying a couple new things like an accent chair, new rug and some pretty lamps will do the trick. Oh and new paint!! Here is my story board for the redesign. Take a look and hopefully you find it an inspiration to redo your master. The design concept I love is “Hotel Style” which is a fancy name for keeping the color and lines simple but also a bit elegant.
Everything you see in the board can be found at either Wayfair, Target, Overstock or Lamps Plus. I am trying to keep the budget for the maker over to about a $1500 dollars. It’s definitely doable if you do the paint job yourself and stick with these retailers. Of course venture out to World Market or Home Goods too! All of these stores have brands everyone loves at prices that can make your home look fabulous without hefty price tags!
- 1. White 3 Piece Duvet Set from Wayfair by Echelon Home $170.99 for king size. Crisp clean white will look fantastic on any bed frame!
- 2. Lada Abstract Waves Grey area rug from Wayfair by Mercury Row (8.6×11.6) $236.99. Just enough color to stand out, but not overpower the room.
- 3. Velvet Storage Bench in Gunmetal from Overstock $172.79. Plush velvet fabric with tufted buttons for an elegant touch. The bench seat opens for some extra storage.
- 4. Sydney Chair from Wayfair by Birch Lane $529.00. This chair is versatile. If you don’t like white, it comes in an array of fabric choices and it’s super easy to request fabric samples so you can be sure it’s what you love before you buy.
- 5. Thom Brass touch table lamp from Lamps Plus $34.99. It’s sleek and stylish. The metal finish goes fantastic with all the grey tones used in the board.
- 6. Sun Zero Rona Sun Darkening curtains from Target $33.49 per panel for the longest length (52×95).
For wall colors I have a few shades of grey, one with some blue in it and one cream tone. These you can actually switch up a bit if you don’t want to go that dark you can stick with a neutral tones such as taupes, but make sure you stay on the grey/blue side of that color or you start to warm up the room and the grey’s will begin to clash. Just simply go with what suits you. Not everyone is bold enough to go dark on their walls or they simply want to keep a room bright by using lighter shades. If you don’t get enough natural sunlight into your bedroom stick with the lighter shades.
I can’t wait to make over my bedroom with this story board!
