client master bedroom inspiration board

master bedroom inspiration board

i am slowly working on a long-term remodel job for a client (here’s a peek at the inspiration board for their boys’ bathroom).  the actual remodel won’t start until this summer is now actually starting next week (!!!), but we’ve been having fun planning out every little detail in hopes that it helps the actual process go smoothly.

this family has a good size master bedroom.  the structural changes are going to make a major difference:  adding double doors leading to the back porch, pulling out the carpet and adding wood flooring, adding 3 small windows above the bed to bring in some natural light, and possibly adding board & batten to the bed wall.  and of course a coat of bright white paint over everything!

the homeowner is going for a modern farmhouse feel (love!) and the trick to keep the modern edge from feeling too cold is to layer lots and lots of texture.  we’re also pairing vintage pieces with modern for a fun mix.  texture is coming in with the warm woods in the client’s own furniture, layered fabrics, gold framed vintage mirrors, and metal finishes in lighting.

i’ll keep you updated as things progress!

i have been craving change so much lately.  i’m not sure what’s going on with me?   i have been switching things around in the house like crazy, and as it turns out, i’m not super happy with most of my decisions.  grrr!

i’ve been slowly working on my bedroom for years, just a piece or 2 at a time, but never a full makeover.

in case you didn’t know, i’m not the type of person who decides to redo a room and then goes out and buys all new things.  um, no.  not my style at all.  first of all, money.  second, i like to buy unique items at flea markets and garage sales, and be creative with what i already have.

so here’s where i’m at:

these are some of the staples i already have in our room: pinched pleat comforter (similar), rug, curtains, and walnut colored wood floors.  thats what i want to keep and work with (plus all of our furniture – i like it all, in all of its randomness).

but this below, this is what i want the room to feel like.  its romantic and clean and a little rustic.

the top image is just what i want.  layers, wood, texture.  i’m seriously considering adding this wood to our bed wall, but the for the rest i want fresh white walls.  i have a chair sitting in the corner and would love to get it recovered, if i could ever decide on fabric.  the wood drum pendant, in a smaller version, would be awesome hanging next to the chair.  i’d love to paint our frames in a few shades of antique gold.  the antlers as jewelry holders is genius!
