It took almost a year of brainstorming and painting a little at a time, but I’ve finally made our master bedroom better suit our space and my taste!
I painted the walls, ceiling, and trim white (Martha Stewart’s Tailor’s Chalk) and sold our old bedroom set that was too large for the space. A storage bed frame from Lovely Furnishings, was the perfect solution for our little bedroom. It has a much smaller footprint than our old sleigh bed and is visually smaller due to the lack of headboard and footboard. On top of that, there are four huge drawers built into the frame that hold all my clothes with room to spare, so I don’t need a dresser. We moved the mid-century dresser from my studio up to the bedroom for Daniel’s things. It’s much lower than our old dressers, so it doesn’t draw attention to the low sloping ceiling.
Now it’s just the way I like my interiors—bright and sunny with a couple houseplants and a few knickknacks. It’s so cozy that want to spend all day in there basking in the sunshine!
“Do you like the new bedroom, Mabel?” (tilts head and looks confused)
“Hey Oliver, let me get a shot of you pretending to be a throw pillow.” (gives me a patronizing look as I stack pillows on him)
