Our bedroom was the last bedroom we finished decorating, I am excited to finally share it with you! When we bought this 1970’s home this bedroom was covered in a floral wallpaper, with matching curtains and coordinating orange carpet. While I LOVE and appreciate the effort put into the original bedroom, it was time for an update! We had the wallpaper removed and changed up the footprint of the en-suite bathroom. I will share the bathroom soon, but today I am sharing the bedroom!
Here it is! We love it so much. After removing all the wallpaper from the previous home owner, we decided to paint the walls a bright white (All White from Farrow & Ball). We really liked the brick wall that was installed in the 1970’s, so we just gave it a fresh coat of white paint. And a big addition was adding the wood beams!
The size of this bedroom was something to get used to (about 15’x15′). This is the first time we have ever had a King Bed, and I have to say I really like it. Between the dogs and Finn coming in bed once in a while, it has been nice to have more room.
We even had extra space for a mini seating area! I like an extra cozy house, so that tends to lean towards more spots to sit and read or just gaze out the windows at the mountains. I had originally ordered a wood bench, but this Boucle Settee is a much better fit for the room.
We added a gas fireplace to our bedroom, and we use it daily. I love being able to flip on a switch to warm up the space and create a real hygee vibe. Gas heats up the room more than our electric fireplace did. You do have to have a chimney with a gas fireplace. Our gas fireplace is this Bayport series. You can easily add an electric fireplace to your current home like we did in our Connecticut home. You can see that electric fireplace with brick and Limewash here.
I actually thrifted the art to the side of the fireplace, I am always on the lookout for a great piece of art with a nice frame.
The Floor Mirror has been on my wish list for a long time! Happy I had the perfect spot in our bedroom for it. The slipcover chair and ottoman has moved to ALL our homes. We have had it for close to 20 years!!! Just proves you get your money out of quality, timeless pieces.
Above our fireplace we have a Frame TV, disguised as art! I know some are against a TV in the bedroom, but we really like it. We occasionally do a family movie night in our bed, so a TV is a must for us.
All of the windows are original wood windows. We still need to order the grid for the windows over the nightstands. We painted them all black inside to match the new windows we aded to the second floor. I did my favorite black curtain rod with the IKEA Ritva white curtain panels. We have three curtain panels on each side.
Thrilled with this Ficus tree I found at our local plant shop. I got it for 50% off! Just needed a little love, water and sun! Paired it with this side stool.
I found this iron and upholstery bed in-stock, loved it as soon as I saw it! My favorite type of bed is an upholstered bed, it is cozy to lean against. I knew we were going to paint the room white and I prefer some contrast in every room, so the combo of upholstery and iron was perfect for us! Plus the leather straps …drool!!! (Our mattress is a non-toxic Tuft & Needle, the Hybrid, the most comfortable mattress ever!).
The Birch Tree art feels like it was made for this room!
Our bedding is a mash-up of several different shops. Sleeping pillows are in the back with Dutch Euros, 22″ Boucle Cream Pillow, Boucle Round Pillow, Linen Quilt (warm brown), Linen Duvet Cover with this medium weight down insert and finished with Chunky Knitted Blanket (warm brown).
This lovely cabinet I ordered for our basement family room. Unfortunately, it wouldn’t fit down the stairs! Thankfully we had a spot for it in our bedroom. It really is great in here.
And that Light Fixture is a favorite thing!!! Our ceilings are 8 feet tall and it was hard to find a large light fixture that didn’t hang too low. This was the perfect solution, on a dimmer switch of course!
