I can’t believe I’m finally sharing our bedroom makeover! I’m so happy Alan and I pushed through several setbacks to get the bedroom and office spaces completed for the big reveal with One Room Challenge! Yes, you read that right, for One Room Challenge, I decided to be the usual overachiever and makeover two rooms. Today, I’m sharing all about our moody and luxe bedroom.
I was so eager to makeover our bedroom since it was not reflective of my aesthetic and it honestly lacked personality and life. If you’re new here, this was the starting point. While it looked good, it just wasn’t the right feel for me and Alan so we started our project with some fresh paint. This beautiful shade of green is Stone Bridge by Dunn Edwards and it’s honestly the most perfect color. It’s moody and cozy first thing in the morning, bright and inviting during the day, and soothing at night.
One of the pieces I was so excited to find was this 19th Century Bench from my friend Anna, owner of Good Eye House & Style in Hudson. While it’s far from the usual mid century modern or eclectic pieces I find, I knew it would work perfectly in our bedroom. It’s the perfect spot in the afternoon to read a book or first thing in the morning when I sip my coffee and read a book to Harlee. The artwork I found during a recent trip to Temecula and the vase was a wedding gift from my former boss. I love this corner!
The first purchase for the bedroom was our rattan bed, which is gorgeous. The nightstands were a lucky find on Facebook Marketplace! Ahhh, I love shopping on marketplace. I love the warmth they add to the bedroom and the colors look so great with the green walls. My Mom found the striped bedding at Ross a couple of weeks ago and bought it for me. While I’m not into matching, she knew it would work well in the room (even temporarily). It really helps elevate the space and give it that luxe moody vibe I’m craving. I love the artwork by my friend Kari Kroll above the bed – it brightens up the room and it’s such a beautiful piece!
Long time followers will recognize our brass and lucite curtain rods, which are a DIY we’ve done throughout the house. I highly recommend this DIY, especially if you have extra wide windows. These striped curtain panels are so pretty and let in just the right amount of light. Our shades were backordered again, so I’m enjoying the early morning light in the bedroom for right now.
I have to admit, there were so many moments when I just wanted to give up since the space just wasn’t coming together as I expected and because of the back to back loss I was processing. But I am SO happy we pushed through and finished. As my IG fam knows, it’s not 100%, but I’m okay with it since I will zhuzh the shit out of this space next year!
