Prioritizing home renovation projects, no mater how big or little, can be a daunting task. Especially when your budget doesn’t match your Pinterest boards.
So is the case of our master bedroom. Last year, I shared with you the current state of our master when we revealed it during our home tour. This past weekend, I completed phase one of our master upgrade.
It really is amazing what a coat of paint and some new bedding will do to a room. While I’m still waiting to get the details (and funds) of this room exactly how I envision a master retreat should look, I thought it would be a fun opportunity to try out some style trends that I’m currently loving.
As much as I’ve talked about it lately, no one should be surprised that I chose a greige for the wall color. I fell in love with SW’s color of the year Poised Taupe, but felt it would be too dark for our room which had a limited natural light source. I ended up going with a lighter shade of greige with Valspar’s Packed Sand. It really pops against the white trim, curtains and bedding, yet gives it a light and airy feel.
Speaking of trim and curtains. There’s another inexpensive idea to updating a room’s look. We traded in the maroon curtains for this classic white. I also got to go all granny chic with this cottage inspired floral bedding.
We did a little adjusting to the layout of the room shifting the bed slightly to the left to accompany for a small sitting area. I left the walls bare to give this new arrangement a good test try.
What do you think of these minor improvements to our master retreat?
If you have layout or design issues of your own and will be in the Little Rock area this weekend, February 11-12, make sure to stop by the Little Rock Home Show going on at Verizon Arena. I’ll be there as well to take advantage of the Ask the Designer Booth sponsored by my favorite local magazine At Home. There you will be able to get free advice on just about any design dilemma, paint selection and even furniture placement. Plus a whole arena full of other home related booths.
