Our Master Bedroom in the Making

I’m not going to lie, it’s been a difficult month filled with highs and lows and today, is a low. With so many unfinished projects, I decided to take a little time today to outline our master bedroom. Decorating always brings me joy. Like most home projects, it’s evolved a little since we first moved in, but I’m increasingly excited to bring it to life. We started transforming our master bedroom by painting it a soft cream, adding a natural brass chandelier and repurposing the Belgian linen drapes from our previous dining room. Along the way we added a beautiful leather club chair to create a cozy reading nook, a brass reading lamp and an antique milking stool we found in Rocheport, Missouri.

Steve and Brooke Giannetti’s Ojai home, fondly named Patina Farm is the inspiration for our bedroom. It feels romantic and relaxing and is filled with light.

9 years ago when we married, we were excited to purchase our first bedroom “set”. It seemed like the right thing to do at the time. You know, after years of hand me downs and just scraping by, a set like the mature thing to do. Flash forward to today and I dread entering the room and seeing so many matching pieces…we’re down to 4, but it feels dark and uninspired. We had started to think about replacing it when I came across a beautiful dresser and chest of drawers at the Restoration Hardware Outlet, on an incredible sale. One piece was perfect, but the other wasn’t. I did my best to wrap my head around the prospect of adding a couple of pieces while still working with my Grandmother’s chest and I just couldn’t commit that night, by morning, they were gone. Six months later, I’m still dreaming about them {and on the wait list}, so I won’t make that mistake again!

As for the headboard, I’m not venturing too far – we’ve selected the Parsons Camelback headboard that is the sister to our dining room chairs. Hey, I know what I like! Since we have 3 girls and a dog, we’re going to retain our existing linen duvet and just add new pillows.

I keep going back and forth on what to do for the floors in our master bedroom. Last summer, we had the hall carpet replaced with wood and have considered doing wood in the master as well, but also know that we’ll eventually renovate the master bathroom and closet area, which may change the footprint of our master slightly. Decisions, decisions. If we do carpet, I’ll definitely do something similar to our former sunroom, which mimics sisal, but lighter. Either way, I plan to layer it with a rug under the bed and chest.  I look forward to bringing our master retreat to fruition in the coming months, I need a good night’s rest 😉
