In case you missed it, you can read about the goals & inspiration I have for my master bedroom here. It’s best to start back in the beginning! Last week I shared my goals, my inspiration and some before pictures.
If you are new to my blog, my husband and I designed and built our Custom dream home on a property that we developed which backs up to a state park! My husband Kris is very handy and we have been adding features and continuing to customize our home!

I spent a lot of time looking around at products and putting this design board together and in doing that, the ideas just kept flowing!
So here are the ideas I have come up with in addition to the normal bedroom stuff that I need to purchase.
- DIY Wood Floating Shelves – I actually don’t have any “shelfies” to decorate in my home so when I was browsing for wall ideas above my dresser, I got really excited!
- DIY Fandelier – I mentioned last week that I was going to look for a fandelier. Well I did and I didn’t find anything that would work… so I have an idea, not sure if it will work yet but I am going to try it! Stay tuned!!!
- Feature Wall – this is the wall behind that bed that you see when you walk into the room. I’ve gone back and forth on this a number of times but laying out the design board with my layout really helped me. Originally I wanted to do Board & Batten since that is what we have in the bathroom but with the windows on that wall, I don’t think that is the best option. I had also always planned to somehow incorporate wall paper too. So as of right now, my plan is to wall paper the entire wall and then do a picture frame of moulding around the bed area! I think it will look awesome! See of few of my wall paper choices below.
There are so many great wallpaper options out there these days! Kris still reminds me of the old days wear wallpaper was cheap and made a mess when you go to take it down. I feel like we’ve gotten away from that and keep telling him that is not the case! I’ll keep you posted on that! There are two main wall paper brands that I am between right now – Sherwin Williams Essentials, Magnolia and Brewster!
Side tangent – it can sometimes take me awhile to make sure I am making the right decision. There are just so many stores with so many options!
I also actually have a lot of decluttering to do in this room. Is it just me or is the Master bedroom an easy target for clutter? It can’t go anywhere else so it’s the catch all place! Well not anymore. I’m listing stuff on Facebook marketplace, giving stuff to friends, and donating so that the clutter is gone! Mess = stress – am I right?
I’m also trying to incorporate a few family heirlooms into this space. My Grandmother was an incredibility special person to me and I am blessed to have a number of things that were hers. I am looking to incorporate into my master bedroom refresh. I even have a few things that she kept in her bedroom. So special!
A little bit about my design board…
Everything is centered around the bed! I am actually between this bed and one other but the price of this bed you totally cannot beat! If you need a new bed and are looking for an easy, affordable solution – look no further.
We also need new nightstands. Nightstands can actually be pretty expensive. I also feel like nighstands are an item where you can do something a little bit different… not sure where I’ll land on this quite yet but I do like these simple, timeless nightstands in gray!
Also, this rug! I love rug layering and I think a rug for this space will really add something! We have basic tan carpeting in all our bedrooms and all the other bedrooms have rugs except for ours so it is nice! I am loving the Lololi Brand Rugs!
The wall hanging over the bed is one of the biggest statement pieces for this room! If you have seen my dining room post then you saw the gorgeous piece of artwork I found there. While I was looking for that piece, I also found this one!
Now that I have my vision, ordering all the products will be much easier! I just love clicking add to cart!
I’m so excited to share this master bedroom update journey and process with all of your here! As always, I would love to hear from you! please comment below or contact me through my contact page.
