I was talking to my neighbor the other day and she mentioned that they swapped bedrooms with their daughter. They wanted to give her space for a desk in her bedroom for distance learning. Such kind, selfless parents. Now they were left with the smallest bedroom for a master. I couldn’t help but offer to make it over and make it something they would just love, no matter the size. They are the kindest people and we wanted to give back to them somehow. First we started with the design plan….

Master Bedroom Plan #1-
Master Bedroom Plan #2-
I actually did two plans! Fun to see what a difference a rug and wallpaper make! I like both looks. But the bird wallpaper in this plan was backordered. So I went with plan #1.
Master Bedroom Before-
Master Bedroom After-
What do you think?!! Our neighbors, the new owners of this bedroom are from Italy and have great style, I knew they would appreciate the modern mixed with the vintage. It feels very Italian vintage to me. Kevin said it reminded him of a bed and breakfast! I personally love a cozy master bedroom 🙂
Let’s talk about the placement of the bed. I did swap the wall the bed was on. Now the bed is in front of the window, but it works much better with the shape of the room. The addition of these whitewashed roman shades brings in texture and adds some interest above the bed. I also grouped a piece of art that I had (and love so much) with the window. It works! Don’t let a window stop you from putting your bed on the wall you want it to go!
Isn’t this removable wallpaper so pretty?? (I ordered from The Home Depot too!) It was probably one of the easiest wallpapers to install. And I really like it on every wall in the bedroom. I wanted this small bedroom to pack a punch. This bedroom has two windows so I knew it could handle some pattern!!
Wallpapering all the walls the same really makes a small room feel bigger! Many of you saw my stories installing the wallpaper and asked what tool I used to smooth the wallpaper, it is actually this paint edger!
I did wallpaper over the closet door! A big reason was to make the room feel larger and to disguise the door. It worked!
The addition of the mirror here, feels like a window and is another way to make a small bedroom feel bigger! I had the mirror and gave it to them, but I found one similar here.
You can see the entrance to the door doesn’t have wallpaper on the back and now I want to wallpaper it too!
The velvet bed is such a nice comfy addition to the room (and it was a good price). I like to mix design styles, this modern bed with the floral vintage wallpaper is a great example of how nixing styles can work.
The bedding turned out so cozy and eclectic! The stripe duvet and shams are from The Home Depot (only $109 for the set!!). These new sheets are SO soft, they are cotton sateen, I ordered those for them from The Home Depot too. I gave them a few extra pillows I already had to finish it off!
We did the magic light trick on either side of the bed instead of nightstands. I used these gorgeous sconces from The Home Depot. You can read about the magic light trick here (and find the smaller puck light I used). Basically I use a puck light (instead of a lightbulb) and attach it to this pvc part I get at The Home Depot. Instantly you have light, without the expense of an electrician.
Nightstand accessories are always my favorite. Functional and stylish. A little vintage dish for rollers, a books to give height to a plant!
There wasn’t a lot of room for a nightstand over on this side, without blocking the closet door. So I went with this ottoman and a basket on top. And this little side table. Perfect for a diffuser and oils for sleep!

They are very happy with how it turned out! And I am thrilled for them to enjoy it!!

Love shopping online at The Home Depot and going to the local shop to finish off every room I do with plants! Plus when I shop online at The Home Depot I know I can easily make returns to my nearest local shop if something doesn’t work right in the space.
