I hope you guys had a wonderful weekend and a great Halloween! We kept things pretty low key and just went to a few houses in our neighborhood. Our daughter had a blast and of course ate way too much candy.
I'm so excited to be sharing our Master Bedroom with you today as a part of the Fall in Love Room Challenge. I wasn't sure I was going to get it all finished in time, but then again I have a bad habit of waiting until the last minute to get things done. I tell myself I work better under pressure, but then I freak out a little at the last minute. It's a vicious cycle. Anyway, on to the room reveal. I started by painting the walls black. The color is actually Ralph Lauren Black Basalt. I was nervous about how it would turn out, but I am so thrilled with the results. I thought it might feel dark and dungeon like, but I kept the furniture/bedding light to help balance things out. It doesn't make it feel small at all and some people have even said they think it looks bigger.
Here's a little before picture of what the room looked like when we started.
And here's what it looks like now! I'll mainly just be sharing all the pictures in this post along with a few sources. I have a few DIYs that I'll talk about in some upcoming posts in the next few weeks.
Our big splurge for this room was the bed. We've wanted to get a king size bed for the longest time. My husband is kind of a buy guy and although he'll deny it, he likes to sprawl out. So a king size bed seemed like a good idea. Almost all of the furniture in our house is from Craigslist, thrift stores, or family members. So it was actually really nice to buy something new and not have to do anything to it. We are really happy with it and hope to have it for many years to come. For us, it was definitely worth the investment!
The sea fan artwork was a simple DIY project that I'll be sharing soon.
We moved our jute rug up from our living room. It was shedding all over the wood floor and was driving me crazy. I love how it looks in here though. Now I just need to find a rug for the living room!
I've been wanting to incorporate this velvet leopard fabric into our home and this seemed like the perfect spot for it. I think every room needs a little animal print!
This bench was another fun DIY I did for this room. I'll be sharing the details on it soon too!
