Nothing gets me going like a good ol’ fashioned room refresh!! That’s just the chronic rearranger lifestyle. My master bedroom underwent a stylistic overhaul a little while back, but it hasn’t felt fully finished ever since. All it really takes is a few small changes to create a big impact, and that’s what this boho glam master bedroom refresh is all about.
Behold, the mood board:
If you’re new ‘round these parts, I live in a precious 1934 Craftsman Bungalow brimming with original character and charm, but she’s equally as challenging when it comes to the quaint size of the bedrooms and the array of windows and doorways.
Our master bedroom measures 11’ 10” x 12’ 4”, an almost-square with two doorways, one closet and two sizable windows. Since the initial remodel, I’ve made some quick decor updates utilizing one of this house’s best attributes—the high ceilings! Installing wooden and brass bracket shelving lifted the focal point and, naturally, the room feels much bigger than it really is.
However, there’s always been a handful of decor elements I’ve longed to change for form and function. First to go, and say it with me, hideous ceiling fan, begone! Why are ceiling fans so ugly … like always?! Those big ass glass shades and so many blades weren’t doing any one (or any home) any favors.
The replacement: a modern and affordable unit in white with three-blades and clean lines. It even has a light kit that won’t make your eyeballs pop out of their sockets. It’ll keep that air brisk, but it’ll certainly blend more into the background a bit.
P.S. – If I ever start my own home decor line, you can bet your bottom dollar I’ll be pushing for a modern line of ceiling fans that’ll knock your damn socks off. #lifegoalz
Next up, and quite possibly my favorite new piece a’coming, a glamtastic and gold Marion Canopy Bed from The Novogratz. I have been dyyiinnnnn’ to get a canopy bed frame up in this room FOR-EV-ER. I’ve also grown tired of the college-chic mattress + box spring on the floor sitch I’m in. I’ve trifled with thrifting an antique, wooden four-poster for years, but aesthetically it wasn’t making the cut. Plus, too much wood would darken such a bright and cheery space.
This sleek and sexy brass frame is EXACTLY what I’d been looking for, and I cannot effin wait to hang all the plant bbs from it!! 🌿 The canopy bed will bring in the element of height, teaming up with my incredible, hand-carved 1900s antique armoire as well as wall shelving. That little extra leg room (whether left open or easily used for basket storage) is going to visually make a world of a difference.
The Legrand lighting train trudges on: I am SO pumped to be including switch plates and outlet covers from The adorne Collection in this soon-to-be refreshed space. Since installing these beauties in the Green Kitchen Glamazon, I’ve been hooked by their high-quality, both in user experience and design.
The brushed brass wall plates exude a subtle, modern edge, yet also maintain an almost-ageless feel blending quite well with the era of my bitty bungalow home. I’ll be installing these babies myself, too! Tune in next week for the DIY on how to install your own switches and outlets from The adorne Collection.
The final bout of accessories, the dome-shade wall sconces!! These brass, down-light wall lamps make a mid century modern statement and tie in all of the glorious metals in the master bedroom. A caveat: the sad thing is I absolutely L-U-V the thrifted polished brass wall sconces I scored for $30 (fret not, they’re not going away forever), but the canopy bed frame will intersect in a way that’s just not going to work. Guess I’ll just need to come up with another home decor project. 💪🏻✨
Good roots is what this master bedroom’s already got, and I’m chomping at the bit to see what these damn fine finishing touches will do!!
Whatchu guys think about my master bedroom ideas?
Stay tuned for progress on Instagram!!
