Our bedroom is becoming a relaxing sanctuary for us and that’s taken some time. It is not 100 percent finished, but it’s close enough to share and about as complete as it will be given the other house projects that are taking priority right now. I’m sharing our master bedroom reveal, from before to after, to show how much our home has changed and how it’s turning into our own zen place.
When we purchased the home our bedroom had white walls and natural wood trim. Our first project was to paint the wall, including an accent wall behind our bed. The accent wall was in Valspar’s Crucible, while the remaining walls were in the paint color Gravity. We replaced our bed with this tufted wingback upholstered bed, which I love, and added curtains. Our gray and white curtains are from Lowe’s and Amazon. I think the colors help in creating a zenlike atmosphere. One of my favorite features in our room is that it opens up to a balcony via sliding doors. It’s so nice to spend time out there when the weather is nice. We kept the other window curtainless for now, but I will likely get the same curtains for that window whenever we move our daughter’s changing table out of our room.
We like to keep our room minimal because clutter creates anxiety and because the room feels more bigger when it isn’t filled to the brim with furniture. We have our dresser and a vanity that Graham gave me for Christmas two years ago. Above the two pieces of furniture we have photos of our dog Taylor, who passed away in 2017. We miss her so much and the photos are from two of our favorite camping trips, to Fossil Creek and Michigan.
As you can probably tell, we only hang artwork that is meaningful to us and evokes positive feelings. Next to our bed we hung a canvas of a photo I took at Muir Woods near San Francisco during our babymoon. Waking up and seeing it makes me feel so peaceful and I remember how beautiful it was. Above the bed we have a photo we took at Arches National Park in Utah, another peaceful and gorgeous place.
The tree photo was gifted to me by Photowall, a Swedish wall-art company that also sells wallpaper, prints, wall murals and lots more. They were kind enough to provide a promo code for readers to get 25 percent off their order: maretteflorapw2020. This promo code is valid at Photowall through May 2020. Once I placed my order at Photowall I received my custom canva in just five days! It comes in a slim box and we had to assemble the canvas ourselves, which was super easy to do. I chose to have the image wrapped around the edges vs. white edges. I also prefer no frame. According to the website, Photowall’s wall murals and canvas prints are environmentally friendly as well as fire-retardant in accordance with Swedish standards and they do not fade in sunlight. The colors and details came out so nicely in this canvas. I am impressed.
We recently got the chenill stripe comforter set from Bee & Willow Home at Bed, Bath & Beyond. It is super comfortable, along with our GhostBed pillows and sheets.
The only other art we display is a photo I took at Chicago Botanic Garden. It hangs next to the window over the changing table, which we plan to move to create a sitting area at some point. I found a rustic gray frame I love at Home Goods.
Of course, there’s always more we want to do, like change the flooring and add a rug under the bed. We also still need to paint the closet doors. Graham would also like nightstands, but we haven’t found any we like yet. I love our room!
