I’m popping in today to post a project that isn’t from my house…which means you finally get to see some color around here 😉 I’m sharing my mom and dad’s master bedroom update, and those two love their color, specifically purple as you can see below:
They’ve been over to our new house a lot helping us with getting things together, and every time they’ve been over, my mom has said, “I want to re-do my bedroom!” (Well, it’s usually bedroom, kitchen, and living room, but we’re sticking to bedroom today.) They haven’t done anything to their bedroom since moving into the house in…2005? As you can see, it was in need of a little help. I don’t know what it is about bedrooms…they often seem to be neglected areas of the house. From the lavender walls to the lace curtains to the most weirdly placed plant ever (DAD), this room needed some love!
After chatting with mom about what she wanted to do and surfing Pinterest, she came up with some ideas. She still wanted it to be feminine, but she wanted it to look less like a single old lady and seven cats lived there. More modern, she said. Now I’m not a designer, but I thought I could help her out. In this situation, I knew a couple coats of paint alone would give this room a huge boost, so we started with paint colors and went from there.
Here’s what we came up with:
Paint colors: Quixotic Plum, Grizzle Gray, Basalt Powder, all Sherwin-Williams
Beautiful, right? These pics were our intended overall vibe for the room, but we were operating on a tight budget, so we weren’t sure how much of it we’d be able to capture. As you click through the progress, I think you’ll agree that we got pretty close!
By the way, this is a SUPER long post, so I decided to split it up in to multiple pages: before pics, painting, furniture, bed stuff, and after pics. Click the next arrow to dive in to the before pics, and enjoy the facelift!
