House Tour: Master Bedroom

Welcome back. If you have missed any of the previous house tour posts you can check out the last one here which has links to previous posts...

BEFORE

So when we first moved into our house the master bedroom needed some major cosmetic work.

The blue paint, while vibrant, wasn't really to our taste. The hardwood floors were already exposed (unlike several other rooms) but they needed some TLC.

There were some cracks in the plaster (not structural issues thank goodness) which were patched up by the previous homeowner for us which was so sweet!

AFTER

We chose a rich brown paint for the walls, which looks really sharp against the white trim and the white closet. The floors were spruced up a bit and then we brought in our stuff.

looking in

We like to keep our room clean and clutter free. No TV, no computer, no knick knack attacks.So we just put up a few items, like some of our camera collection.

We continued our rather unconventional decorating habit of mixing extreme prints, but it just suits us so well.

bed

We decorated the walls with our Japanese print collection. The prints have such clean lines that they don't really compete with the pattern of the bedspread.

We love how the room is really bright, but it doesn't actually get much direct sunlight.

The darker paint keeps the room feeling calm, warm, and sophisticated.

Curtains and art

So there you have it for the master bedroom. We still have more to come (kitchen, basement, bathrooms, etc.) Keep watching and I will post more house tour photos as we finish projects and move forward with our new (to us) home!

We like the richness of deep brown also. Our walls are tiffany blue, but our furniture {made by the Mister in his spare time} is all stained a dark, full brown.
