Master Bedroom Renovation
Ahhh… we haven’t had a real decorated master bedroom… uh EVER! So it was SO nice to finally be able to create a space we could enjoy and relax in! I’m in LOVE with this custom color I found on a bag! Lol… I find inspiration in the weirdest places! Yep, I was at a boutique and got handed a little dark brownish grey bag and I thought.. I LOVE this color! I folded the bag up and put in in my inspiration folder. And when it came time to design this room, I brought it out and took it to the paint store! And tada! The room itself is very large with GREAT light and look at those bay windows!! LOVE the feeling of this room. I really didn’t want to spend too much in here thought since it wasn’t a priority. So we pretty much just painted it (I painted it… and I think it looks fabulous 🙂 And then I have my contractor add the wainscoting around the entire room to give it some extra character and brighten it up a bit. I eventually was able to get some really cute curtains, but they are not shown sadly! The transformation turned out great and we absolutely love spending time in here! Since I had the baby only a couple weeks after move in, I knew I would be spending A LOT of time in my bedroom trying to sleep 🙂
TIP: ADDING WARMTH INTO YOUR SPACE THROUGH WALL TREATMENTS
It’s no secret that adding wood wall treatments to your walls will give them more dimension and can bring a lot of warmth into a space. A classic white semi gloss will really add some pop to the treatment and make it stand out against a darker wall color. There are several different types of wood wall treatments and depending on your taste, you can create many different looks and styles. Wood wall treatments can be really affordable and if you have the time and skills, you can somewhat easily do them yourself! I knew I wanted to do a really rich dark grey/brown in my master bedroom so I added this wall treatment all the way around to give it some balance and lighten up the space. Wood wall treatments can be very versatile as well. Adding a more formal feel or casual feel to the room!
TRICK: FLAT, SMOOTH WALLS ARE THE BEST FOR WOOD WALL TREATMENTS
The back of wall looks best when it is smooth. You can achieve this look in a couple different ways. If you are lucky enough to have your walls not textures (for instance, if you are building a house and you tell the texture guys to leave the wall flat and NOT texture it) OR if you have flat walls… (lucky!). This is the easiest of course. But most of us don’t have this luxury! So, you need to put sanded plywood down first! This will give you a really clean, finished look to your wall treatment.
