It’s been a really long time since I last posted before and after pictures of our house. But, the other day I was picking up in our bedroom and thought it would be a great time to take pics of the room to share with you.
Our master bedroom is just one of the two bedrooms on our main floor. Our upstairs is a converted attic that is set up as a master suite with a large room, really big closet and attached large bathroom with double sinks. But, when we decided to buy this house we didn’t feel comfortable putting our kids on the main floor while we slept upstairs. It just made me nervous, and Kaelyn’s room had been upstairs at our old house, so we were used to being on the main floor while our kids were upstairs.
When we decided that we would put our kids up in the master bedroom it meant that we would be giving up the luxuries of a closet large enough for both our clothes (and then some), and an attached bathroom with two sinks. But, it really hasn’t been that big of a sacrifice. We use the closet in the other bedroom for Jer’s work clothes, we store our off season clothing in the basement, and we have simplified our clothing to only clothes that we actually use and wear.
We really like our room, it feels relaxing and cozy and we actually fit all of the furniture that we had in our bedroom at our old house.
We painted and changed the light fixture, but the blinds are the same mini-blinds that came with the house. I would love to do some kind of window treatment, but don’t really know what to do. I think curtains would add softness and a little romance to the room, but I really am so bad at picking out curtains! There is only window in our house that has curtains on it, and that’s because they came with the house when we bought it!
I would also love to find or make a pillow for our bench so that it would be kind of like a window seat. Not that we would ever really use it for that, but again, I think it would add some softness to the room. I also want to get some live houseplants for their air purifying benefits, and because I love the freshness that they bring to a room.
The picture above the bed is from Ikea and we love the way it looks in the room. I wouldn’t mind having some different lamps for our nightstands, but it’s definitely not a necessity, maybe if I found some good ones on craigslist or something. I’m definitely no interior designer or even have a knack for that kind of thing like some people do, Jer is actually better at it than I am. 🙂 But, we try to keep things simple and uncluttered, with not too much going on.
Any ideas for me for curtains in our Master Bedroom? I would love links to pictures for inspiration!
