If you've been reading for a little while now, you know that I have been waffling big time over what to do with our master bedroom. (You can read about that waffling here, here and here.)
I've always liked the mellow, neutral tones in the bedroom, and the overall lightness of the room, but always thought that it was missing something.
Rather blah, don't you think?
I had been thinking that what the room really needed was a nightstand, but I realize now that it just needed more texture and fullness. It also -- as much as I didn't want to admit this to myself -- needed some depth, and a few little dark accents to ground the space. It also wouldn't hurt to add just a little color to tie in with the color palette of the rest of the house, especially the light blues and dark browns.
After the recent living room color update had me bringing in lots of new pillows, I decided to try some in the bedroom, and I loved the effect. Add to that the framed posters I brought back from Boulder and a great little $100 cabriolet leg table that I snagged at HomeGoods, and it's a huge improvement.
So I present our newly texturized, comfier, cozier master bedroom!
(You can read about how I made that jewelry hanger here.)
Of course we still need to hang those frames on the wall (leaning stuff right over our heads is not such a good idea in earthquake country), and I might still try to find some matching nightstands (though I love how the curved squares on the pillow echo the shape of the stacked cubes I'm currently using). But overall, the room feels so much more lush and inviting.
