Master Bedroom: Creating a Moodboard and Beginning Renovation

Updated: Feb 15, 2021

Our Master Bedroom has been a work in-progress for 6 months now... which has been driving us a little crazy. But, aside from the popcorn ceiling removal, carpet removal, flooring, re-painting, we also discovered some mold underneath the window that had to be remediated. That, and COVID-related shipping delays, and this space has been a very slow progression.

The popcorn ceiling and carpet removal was hired out, because the ceilings are way too high for our comfort levels, and we also decided to have the entire house re-painted to Alabaster from Sherwin Williams. Aside from doing a few touch-ups, we had a pretty good base going into laying floors and starting to decorate.

It completely brightened and opened up the space - I wanted to make sure our ceiling and walls were the same color, especially because so much of the house is vaulted. We're still debating on the window... it's vinyl, and sanding/repainting it would likely void the warranty. I've been trying to decorate with the wood in mind, and we'll leave it for now... but it might have to go at some point in the future.

My moodboard has been pretty consistent from Day 1 for this space. I really wanted something warm, with a lot of neutrals and natural materials (wood, linen, rattan) but still have a transitional look vs. a beachy-style. Adding the olive curtains and black metal side tables helps balance out the jute and rattan.

This rug was the ONLY piece that was an on-a-whim purchase. I found it in the clearance bin at Pottery Barn and even though I was looking at some patterned Loloi rugs, this one fit in with the style of the room so we decided to go for it. It was also under $300 - go figure! I might go for a layered look in the future, but it'll do for now.

Here is where we are now with the space.

Still some work to do, but we've made progress!
