Our master bedroom needed a serious revamp. We hadn’t done anything to it since we built ten years ago and it was one of those rooms that I sort of forgot about. I guess just like we moms forget about taking care of ourselves, we forget about our room as well. Anyways, I wanted something classic but with a clean modern feel. I also had to work around the log furniture set that my husband insisted on buying and now won’t let me update 🙄.
I chose ‘evening dove’ by Benjamin Moore for the color. I wanted a dark navy with grey tones and this color is just perfect. It is dark so I balanced it with a lot of white and bright accessories. It gives the room a modern clean feel while still staying with my country decor
Shiplap wall. I wanted a feature wall and the white wood balances out the dark blue so nicely. It’s subtle and classic. The wood is from lowes as tongue and groove pine and the whole wall cost about $250. A huge impact for a small price.
Propane fireplace. Gives a cozy rustic feel and adds a natural stone element to the room. The mantle was only $20. I got it from a local sawmill. If you’re looking for something raw looking, check with local mills for something uncured and rough sawn. It won’t be perfect, but they’re cheap and it was the look I wanted anyways
New doors and pine trim. You’d be surprised at how much new doors and trim can really change the look of a room. These doors are special order at lowes and were $95 a piece. I paired them with rubbed bronze hardware. They really give it a custom look and match the simplicity of the pine trim.
Black and white artwork. I love the big bold white matte on these frames against the dark walls. It really makes them stand out. I wanted to keep the walls very simple and went with a simple frame display above the bed.
I can’t forget about my little piglet! Don’t be afraid to add yourself to the room. Who cares if it’s lame and doesn’t belong in Martha Stuart Living. You have to live there. Not her. So add a pig if you want a pig (that may only be me, but add what you love)
