Refreshing a Master Bedroom

Today I'm sharing a little bit of a refresh on our master bedroom.

I showed you all our master bedroom a while ago, but since then we've added a couple things.

It went from this when we moved in....

To this last spring...

To play off the yellow that I've been loving, we purchased a large yellow rug from IKEA. I love the pop of color it adds to the room! It makes you not notice the bad carpet as much...or at least that's what I tell myself. :)


The next thing I did was add two mirrors. I hung them behind each of our side tables. I love how they bounce the light around the room! They also add some weight to the otherwise large, overbearing wall.


We also added the yellow throw. We keep it on the foot board, because it's really just for looks.

Porter decided to take a snooze during the middle of this photoshoot. I can't blame him.

We also got a close-out Sleep Number Bed under those covers. We can both have our own firmness now and we're sleeping better!

There are things I still want to do to this room. First, I'd like a larger sitting chair over in the corner where the small black wood chair is (something I can look for at flea markets this summer). I'd also like to replace the baseboards with the large white ones we used on the main floor. Obviously carpet is on my list too, but that will be quite a ways down the road. And looking at these photos makes me think I need some larger pillows behind the white ones on the bed. There's always something to do!

Here's to another year of style (and better sleep too!)

    Such a beautiful and restful place. I noticed you have 2 different nightstands...we do, too. I'm shopping for nightstands (my reason for poking around your previous bedroom blog posts) and wondering, are two of the same nightstands too matchy-matchy? I found a deal on one that I LOVE but I'm hesitant to order 2.

  2. I've never had matching nightstands. But I see them on other blogs and in magazines and they look lovely. I don't think there is a right or wrong answer, really. I'm sure whatever you pick will be great. You have wonderful style!
