{The Master} Bedroom Reveal

I know it's like a tennis match over here lately, with the back and forth between houses...but we worked so hard prepping the old house for sale and a photoshoot, so I want to be sure and share those final projects with you. That way I can wrap up the Home Tour for our memory banks, too.

If you recall, the Master Bedroom makeover came on hot and heavy...we had barely gotten started (with just new bedding), but the magazine added the room to their shot list, not to mention, we unexpectedly needed to sell the house...so we had to crank it in to high gear. Basically the opposite of how I usually operate!

Selling all the heavy, dark furniture on Craigslist, and replacing it with lighter, upholstered pieces made the biggest difference in transforming the room. The second, was adding bold drapes to better define the windows.

I used a combination of Grace's faux-lucite tutorial, and Kristen's source for inexpensive brass hardware, to create these stunning rods that served as a glamorous backdrop for my budget-friendly drapes. Together they make such a statement...without breaking the bank!

We kept the white wood blinds for darkness and privacy, but added matchsticks to cover them and add texture. The windows are quite small (especially in comparison to the bed), but we made them appear grand by mounting the blinds and drapes much higher and wider than the actual windows. That forced the inside panels to hang behind the bed, which I love.

The colorful drapes made it easy for me to shop our house for most of the decor and accessories...everything coordinated!

The snow leopard and chevron pillows are a fun counter to the feminine florals (I do happen to share the room with a man). #scandalous

The hutch houses the TV, installed on a pull-out shelf (thank you rockstar-contractor) so it can be watched from bed, or the new sitting area.

Hi Sugarplum | Master Bedroom Reveal

Since the time frame was so short, and we were moving houses (our new bedroom has a completely different layout), we didn't complete everything in our initial plan...but the room still turned out better than I could have imagined. I miss it every day, especially given the state of our current bedroom!

I can't believe it took us 10 years to actually give our own room a makeover! We are definitely changing that in the new house...mom and dad's room will come first! (Well, first after the Kitchen anyway.)

  25. My favorite parts of this room are the drapes/rods (I love color!) and the peek of leopard on the lamp shades.

    Is your head still spinning from all you guys had going on for weeks? My head hurts just thinking about it ... I can't imagine living it! But you've made it through the other side and now you have all new spaces to decorate. Starting over is so fun, in my book. Keep what you love, change what you don't. Enjoy it!

  30. Hi Cassie!
    Just found your blog via Pinterest doing a search for "floral curtains"... and I am SO glad I did! I have been searching high and low for budget-friendly floral panels (especially since I need 5 of them), and the ones you linked to from World Market are also on sale right now so I got all 5 for under $50! Thank you so much for such a great source roundup - your bedroom is gorgeous! Can't wait to follow along your blog moving forward.

  31. What an absolutely gorgeous room! Love those lucite rods. After seeing your post, I will be purchasing them for my little girls room. My question is, the windows in the room are 40"w and trying to decide if I should go 4 or 6" longer on the width of the window when ordering the rod. Any recommendations would be helpful.

    ReplyDelete
  32. Thank you!! It just depends on how far out from the window frame you want the rods. Whichever length you order, they'll cut them to your requested size...but one does give you more waste than the other. But you don't want to go through the trouble and expense and not have them the size you actually want them. I prefer my rods to extend 6-8'inches at least from the edge of the window, but measure it out and see what you like! I hope this helps!

Your comments are like popcorn with milk duds, I just can't quit them. Thanks for taking the time to share your positive thoughts! xoxo, cass
