I think when most people move into a new house, they prioritize the rooms that people will see first when they walk into the house as the ones to decorate nicely first! But not us (ha), we were SO READY to redo our master bedroom that I put that super high on the priority list, even before our kitchen!
So I went to one of my dear friends Jen from House Collected to collaborate on this project and she went to work picking things I would love, staying within my budget but advising me on a few splurges that would make all the difference and, as always, she was totally right!
I think my favorite pieces in our room are the splurges – our bedding, custom roman shades, built-ins, and natural wood nightstands. But I also couldn’t let go of our bedframe that we bought when we first got married with all our saved pennies at a seconds sale for Pottery Barn (no longer sold there) but Jen’s suggestion to update it with a can of gold spray paint was totally on point!
We also had the weirdest hollow spaces in our room that would never have really fit any size of a dresser perfectly, so I also went with Jen’s suggestion to splurge on built-ins there and we couldn’t be happier with those!
You can read more about Jen’s brilliant design behind our master bedroom revamp here, and you can sort of see before pictures in Lyla’s newborn shoot here. Also, the pictures in the gold frames in our room are from that newborn shoot by my other super talented dear friend Emmy Lowe. She is also responsible for all the beautiful pictures of our room you see here.
