In my opinion, your bedroom is a sanctuary. Its where I go when I want to relax and recharge, but I’ll admit that in years past, the bedroom was usually the last room to be decorated. I guess the kitchen and living room always seemed more important since those are the spaces everyone see’s when they visit. But since moving into a new place in January, we decided to start decorating the bedroom FIRST! Its coming along slowly but surely and I’ve added a few new bedroom decor pieces I wanted to share with you all today incase you might be updating your space as well.
Our first upgrade was the mattress! When we moved from a queen bed to a king, I knew I wanted a cream colored upholstered panel bed. After a LOT of searching online, I found this one! It was exactly what I was looking for and also pretty affordable. The headboard is the perfect color, and really gives the room a clean and fresh feel that I was going for. It did need assembled, but Nathan was able to put it together in about 2 hours with just himself and a good ole power drill.
I love white bedding (shocker right?!) and this set is actually from our old bed, but I love it so much that I don’t want to get rid of it until I find something else that I love. So for now, we are making it work! I keep going back and forth on what to place on the wall above our bed. This map print is actually an older piece from World Market, and at our previous place you may remember it was above our sofa. But I actually think it works pretty well here, so I may keep it here until I find another piece that I like better.
After the mattress/bed upgrade, the next most important item on our list was black-out curtains. As most of you know, Nathan works night shift, so we needed something that would block out all the daytime light for when he sleeps. I don’t know if you have ever searched for black-out curtains, but its not easy! Most of the ones online I found looked like cheap versions of hotel curtains, and I just wasn’t liking anything I saw. I knew I wanted a light color, which was an even HARDER task, but when I finally found these I loved them, specifically because they have a slight texture to them so they aren’t just flat white! Honestly, they were even better seeing them in person and I’m really glad with the decision we made. Not only do they do a great job at blocking out the light, they also really add warmth to the space and enhance the high ceilings.
So that’s where we are at now with the master bedroom decor! As we start to add more pieces, I will doing another update for you guys! In decorating your bedroom, just remember, make it a space that you love and enjoy spending time in. Have fun decorating!
