Master bedroom update.

April 11, 2018


I think we often put a lot of our time and resources into our living room and kitchen areas because it is where we spend the most time. I totally underestimated how much a difference it would make to put some effort into our master bedroom. It is the only room in the house that usually isn’t ransacked with legos, cars, and magna tiles. It is a space we can retreat to at night and start off on the right foot in the morning in a peaceful environment. Granted, it rarely stays clean, but what an oasis it has been for us!

I made many quick decisions when we first pulled this room together, and I should have known I would regret any grey. (See this post on color psychology.) I switched out the curtain panels when these echo print curtains on sale, and picked up a few additional pillows, and it felt like a complete refresh. Textiles are the easiest and most cost effective ways to update a room!

P.S. Thank you for your patience with the slow pace on the blog. Hopefully will be able to update you soon.

  • I love the photos, the room looks so good so far! Can’t believe it’s not the final product. It can only get better. 😀

  • All the warm tones are beautiful. I like the changes. We have been deciding for three years on curtains or no curtains. I feel like you sold me on them… but kids like to hide in them. Hope you’re having a good April!

  • beautiful, looks so calm and cozy!

  • Anna, I love the bedroom, it’s fresh, calm, and feminine, but not too girly. Bedroom in our rental apartment has all walls and curtains grey, and I’m itching to change it!
    I love your blog, and the slow pace feels authentic and true to the stage of your family’s life. I’m looking forward to every new post and maybe even more so when they are sparse. Plus it gives me more time to browse your archives where you have a lot of timeless and inspiring content!

    • Katka, that is such a kind and uplifting comment thank you! I have debated if I should have contributors to keep content going, but always go back to wanting to feel like this space is very much where we are at as a family. Thank you for continuing to visit!

  • I love those curtains! They’re the perfect texture!


  • The room is cozy, and it is so calming and refreshing. It is so beautiful.
