It's finally here!! And I finished JUST under the wire! Phew! I've learned a LOT from this challenge, but I am so glad its done. I can't believe I actually waited so long to finish our Master Bedroom. It turned out better than I could have hoped, and all I want to do is turn the lights down low and snuggle with a good book in this cozy space.
Lets take a quick look down memory lane and see what this room looked like just 3 short weeks ago.
Wow. That is one boring room. But not any more!
I could NOT be happier about how this room turned out. First, lets talk about these walls!! As you can see in the before pictures, we have really high, sloped ceilings with an awkward ledge that runs the entire length of the tall wall. I knew I wanted to bring in a dark color, but did not want to run it all the way up to the ceiling line and emphasize the slope, so by bringing the ceiling down, I minimized the asymmetrical ceiling and made the space feel much cozier. Carrying the white ceiling color down the walls also kept the room feeling bright and light, and created a nice balance with the dark Navy.
The artwork in this room is an Emily Jeffords print I've been eyeing for a LONG time, and it works perfectly in this space. I pulled the green elements out of the print and added velvet Sage pillows in the bedding mix, as well as Sage trim to the simple white semi-sheer curtains that flank the new bamboo shades.
And we can't forget to talk about my favorite new spot in the house...my reading nook.
I love sitting here for a few quiet minutes to enjoy the view, soak up some sunshine and flip through my favorite magazine.
I had some space left on the "awkward wall" as I like to call it, so I decided to put up one of the custom shelves we had made with the furniture oh so many years ago, and added some leaning frames with family photos we had taken last year.
I'm not a fan of filling ledges up with a bunch of stuff, but felt I couldn't leave it blank, so I put a few low maintenance plants in baskets and called it a day. I love the pop of color and texture it adds while lending a natural element to the space.
Thanks to all that have followed along in this journey! And a huge THANK-YOU to Calling it Home for hosting another fabulous event! I highly encourage you to check out all this years participants for some incredible inspiring transformations!
