After two attempts (a big thank you to my photographer Kari for shooting the same space TWICE), I finally have a happy master bedroom. It’s so important for this space to be relaxing, beautiful and sexy all at once. As a parent, I find myself retreating to this room to get away from the chaos of the rest of the house. It’s the first and last thing I see when I get up so it has to invoke energy and peace at the same time — although most of my energy comes from
four one cup of morning coffee.
The room is large so I wanted a darker color on the walls to cozy it up a bit. The navy blue [Valspar--Pitch Cobalt 5010-2] does just that, and the crisp white trim and bedding keep it from feeling dreary. I couldn’t resist the furry white pillows at Garden Ridge for $20 each (knock-off of these fabulous bad boys). They are super playful and fun, and this all-white bed needed something furry to liven it up a little! The patterned pillow was thrifted and the chevron dot pillow was on clearance at Target for a whopping $5. I know, big spender. I made the headboard myself. The materials cost less than $100 and it only took about two hours. I have now made two headboards and I’ve learned a lot about the process…the makings of a great DIY post (on what NOT to do).
