Fall in Love Room Reveal!

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!


Here's a mini source list for the room:
Bed: Wayfair (similar)
Bench: DIY found here, fabric from Tonic Living
Wall Color: Ralph Lauren Black Basalt
Leopard Pillows: Fabric found here, sewn by me
Lamps: Hobby Lobby
Sea Fan Art: DIY found here
Curtains: DIY found here
Nightstands: Makeover found here

I hope you enjoyed a little peek into our home.  Thanks again to Cassie from Primitive and Proper for hosting this and giving me the motivation I needed to finish this room!  Check out the list below for the other participants' posts today and then follow along the rest of the week to see all of the rooms revealed.

I am an American man, and I have decided to boycott American women. In a nutshell, American women are the most likely to cheat on you, to divorce you, to get fat, to steal half of your money in the divorce courts, don’t know how to cook or clean, don’t want to have children, etc. Therefore, what intelligent man would want to get involved with American women?

American women are generally immature, selfish, extremely arrogant and self-centered, mentally unstable, irresponsible, and highly unchaste. The behavior of most American women is utterly disgusting, to say the least.

This blog is my attempt to explain why I feel American women are inferior to foreign women (non-American women), and why American men should boycott American women, and date/marry only foreign (non-American) women.

BOYCOTT AMERICAN WOMEN!

Unknown said...

OMG Bethany this is absolutely GORGEOUS!! Im so in love with this space. The black walls are beautiful. We got our bed from Wayfair too, it actually looks very similar to yours. It was the best money we spent. Thank you for sharing this gorgeousness with us.

Unknown said...

The black walls are just stunning! I'm dying over that bench - can't wait to hear about it! That's totally what I need for my entryway! The leopard pillows are icing on the cake!

Unknown said...

Dang girl - you friggin' nailed it! The layering of textures and colors is so good. I know this is the littlest detail - but I love how you used the stacks of Nat.Geo. on your bench. Love the little pop of gold - and how it pulls the brighter tones out of the gorgeous leopard pillows. Beautiful.

Unknown said...

I am SO smitten with this room Bethany! I swear I've looked at it 100 times! That black blows me away with all the neutrals against it! Loving that bench too! Can't wait for the deets!

Unknown said...

It's stunning! You did a great job. I've always been a fan of dark colors but am always intimidated when it comes to incorporating it in my own house, however, this may have given me the kick in the rear end that I needed!

Unknown said...

Bethany! You have outdone yourself!! This is unreal!!!

Unknown said...

This room is amazing! Love the dark walls. That bench is incredible! I cannot wait for that tutorial. I couldn't love that fabric more!

Thanks so much Michelle! I totally agree, king beds are the best! :)

Unknown said...

Bethany! It looks SO fantastic. The first thing my husband and I did when we bought our first house was buy a king bed and it's been a marriage happiness saver :) I absolutely love the black walls. I would have been nervous of the dungeon feel but with the white ceiling and upholstered bed frame it doesn't have that effect even a bit. So chic and glam and gorgeous.

Unknown said...

This bedroom is so beautiful! I love it! Which bed is it from wayfair? I have been looking for one from there but can't decide and I love the look of yours!

Unknown said...

Thanks so much! Here's the link for the bed, we love it so far! They had a promotion going on where you could get an extra 10% off if you signed up for their emails too. Not sure if it's still going on, but it saved us a few extra dollars if you want to look into it :)

Unknown said...

LOVE! I just purchased this bed in gray and am waiting on to arrive...found your blog by looking for ways to redo my room when it comes...we have spent 9 years of marriage in a queen. So excited. Love the comforter...where did you get? Gorgeous, gorgeous room.

Unknown said...

Thank you! We have loved having a king bed so far, definitely a nice luxury :) The quilt is from Homegoods.

Unknown said...

What a beautiful room!! Where did you get that gold hand/arm object? Thank you!

Unknown said...

Thank you so much! I found it at Hobby Lobby in the clearance section a while back and spray painted it gold. They may still have them, but I'm not sure. I've heard they have similar ones at Michael's too if you happen to have one near you.

Unknown said...

Great tip! Thank you!

Unknown said...

When will you share the details on the bench? I'm trying to find something to go in front of my king sized bed and I love this! Thanks.

Unknown said...

Thanks! I shared the details of the bench here: http://www.dwellingsbydevore.com/2014/11/gold-upholstered-bench-tutorial.html#.VMT9BYtH3Vo

Unknown said...

The link to the bed does not work, do you remember the color and brand of the bed?

Unknown said...

Never mind! I see your comment down a few :)

Unknown said...

Sorry about that, I'm not sure why it wasn't working. Glad you were able to find it below :)

Unknown said...

Bethany,

I am just dying to know where you found your quilt! I have been looking for a simple white quilt with some texture, and this one is just perfect! Also, this bedroom is pure perfection.

Unknown said...

Thanks so much! The quilt is from Homegoods. I've seen them there still from time to time.

Unknown said...

where did you find the bench??

Unknown said...

It was a DIY project, you can find the details in this post: http://www.dwellingsbydevore.com/2014/11/gold-upholstered-bench-tutorial.html

Unknown said...

Hi Bethany, I stumbled upon your page because of your stunning bedroom! I've been eyeing those leopard pillows for a while, and was wondering what size yours are? They are absolutely perfect! Many thanks :)

Unknown said...

Thanks so much! I think they are around 19" by 19"

Unknown said...

Thanks so much for replying! Are the pillow inserts the same size? Or smaller? Your room is an inspiration! xoxo

Unknown said...

I actually used a little bit larger inserts, that makes them look a little fuller. I used the 20 x 20 feather inserts from IKEA. They are my go to for inserts.
