We took time out last month to give our master bedroom a bit of TLC. We had initially renovated it when we first moved into our home 10 yrs ago and there really wasn't anything wrong with it but we did feel it was time for a refresh.
It all started with finding a storage solution for Dhiraj who had his clothes on a bench for the longest time (because the kind man gave me the entire walk in closet for my shtuff!) And then that snowballed into re-covering the headboard, fresh lick of paint, additional lighting and upgrading our doors & trim.
The first step was finding a smart storage solution for Dhiraj's clothes and we knew we wanted something vintage & something mid century modern. We were thrilled when we found this gorgeous burl chest of drawers with nine drawers and a clean design. It provided ample storage for Dhiraj's clothes and had a slim profile taking up minimum space in the room. The 35 yrs old mirror above it was another vintage find and we instantly fell for the rose tint and unique shape.
The headboard was one we made 10 years ago and since the fabric was showing some wear, we decided to re-cover it in this outdoor fabric we had from an earlier unfinished project. The pretty Ikat print was the starting point for the color scheme in the room and led to this beautiful paint color on the walls 'Hudsons Bay' blue from Benjamin Moore. 10 yrs ago we had replaced the window with these huge french doors and with the amount of sunlight we get in the room we decided to go for a dark moody color. The blue is a gorgeous velvety color that deepens as the day goes by turning the room into a cozy enclave come night time.
You will notice the closet door was also painted blue and we did that to make it disappear and give us more color in the room. We left the entrance door white for impact.
Since we did away with the ceiling fixture we needed additional lighting in the room and added these retro pendants circa Ikea 2003 above the white Malm chest of drawers. Further lighting was added with table lamps on the burl chest of drawers and all lighting is voice controlled via Google assistant. No more getting out of bed to turn switches on and off!!!
Doors, trim and baseboard were upgraded to a clean contemporary style that was painted in Factory White by Benjamin Moore that popped against the blue walls. We went from 1.5'' baseboards to 5.5'' baseboards and that alone made a huge difference to this sixties home. The doors were changed from flat slab doors to paneled rounded arch textured doors and all hardware was upgraded to satin nickle handles.
And finally we added pops of color with soft layers and lots of plants to bring the room alive. It is quite difficult to get out of bed in the mornings now and we so look forward to sleeping in on the weekends.
Most times we are so caught up with our clients projects and do not have enough of time to complete our own renos. It was fun to finally give our bedroom some lovin. Did you like this makeover? do tell us what your favorite part of the room is.
