My dear friend reached out to me a few months ago asking if I'd be interested in putting together a design board for her and her husband's master bedroom makeover? With out hesitation I said yes!
It seems funny that the space most of us resort to for some relaxation after a long day is usually the room couples neglect the most in their homes. Atleast that's how it is for myself and a lot of our friends! However, I'm a firm believer that our surroundings can affect our mood (for example, my master typically gives me anxiety because it's where all our laundry goes to die!), so I was happy to help my friend, Jen, out!
To get started, I had her send me some snapshots of their current space to see what we were working with.
Doesn't this look all too familiar for most of us? Her room reminds me soooo much of our master suite, except mine is WAY more messier! Haha.
Aside from perusing Jen's Pinterest, we also discussed what her room's "must" and "wants" were. She indicated that they were looking to get rid of their large dresser and wanted to do two small ones next to their bed, that would also serve as their nightstands. She loved to have an upholstered bed. She wanted a mirror somewhere in the space to help reflect light and white or light colored walls. For accent colors, she mentioned she was drawn to blues and blush pink. They also have plans to put in a fireplace on the TV wall. Most of all, she wanted a nice, calm space. She's a working mom of 4, so I'd say she derseves that!
For starters, I focused on the bed area. Here is what I came up with:

White curtains (these are my favorite and I use them every where!) | "I Have Found the One" Sign (Jen already owned this sign so it made sense to use it) | Clear Glass Lamp (currently out of stock but similar here and here) | Upholstered Wing Back Head Board | White Nightstand Dresser (I also really liked this one and this one) | Beveled Glass Picture Frame | Blue Linen Tufted Bench | Pink Succulent Wood Curl Wreath | Plaid Blush Pink Pillow | Blue Whipstich Pillow | Stripe Arm Chair | Gold End Table | Artificial Potted Plant
All the bedrooms that Jen seem to gravitate towards on Pinterest had a very airy, and serene vibe to them, so I really focused on creating a design board that included soft, calm colors. I thought chambray blue and blush pink complimented each other well. In place of the large dresser, I suggested a reading area to fill up what would now be a large empty wall.
Her office nook will remain an office area for the time being. As I mentioned earlier, for now we just focused on the sleeping area. However, for the TV wall that will eventually include a fireplace, I did share this inspiration pic with her as a way to incorporate some mirrors into her space. Her and I both loved the idea of two arched mirrors bookending the fireplace mantel.

Jen has already started making progress on the room and shared a pic with me on how it's coming along!

Doesn't it look great?! Bedding and chairs are the next things she's looking to work on BUT it's already looking like a whole new room! I think her pup agrees😉
I hope you all are staying well and staying sane!
