Calm and Luxurious Master Bedroom Plan

I always dreamed of a beautiful, calm and luxurious master bedroom and now I am actively working toward realizing my dream

I’ve been putting decorating the house on the back burner for quite a while. My main excuse was that I don’t have the money to do it right now. And because I am still paying off my student loan and other consumer debt it feels like I will never be able to do it. The other excuse is that I wasn’t sure what kind of style I am going for.

But a little voice in the back of my mind keeps asking “when will you do it if you don’t do it now?” And I realized that I just need to make the plan and put my head down and work towards realizing my dream bedroom!

How I found my style

The first thing I knew I had to do was to define my particular style. I knew from the beginning that I am always drawn to more feminine/romantic styles of furniture. But I also wanted to explore other styles as well.

And so the research began… I’ve been looking and pinning to my Pinterest boards and stalking blogs that I loved. I’ve done ‘finding my style’ quizzes and I made mental notes when I am in the shops of items that I am drawn to. And now I can confidently say that my style is: Glam Farmhouse with a touch of French Vintage.

So the first thing I know you going to say is: “You’ve got expensive taste girl!” and yes I know… (big sigh)

But I am not going to let it stand in my way. I know that there is more affordable options out there, I just need to find it.

Calm and Luxurious Master Bedroom

Maybe you can tell, but I have a lot of plans for my bedroom. So I made a list (no particular order) for the things I want and need for our bedroom.

  1. Bed – headboard, base, and mattress
  2. Blanket box – extra storage because our storage is a bit limited in our home
  3. Bedside tables
  4. New bedding
  5. Paint
  6. New closets – The room has freestanding wardrobes at the moment. And unfortunately, it is not that efficient. So I am thinking of creating our own custom freestanding wardrobes that will use the space more efficiently.
  7. Curtains I already purchased new curtains a while back. I want to add a blackout lining at a later stage and maybe some sheer curtains to give it a layered look. But this is optional.
  8. New light fixture
  9. Some decor pieces
  10. Rug – I don’t think I will end up purchasing a rug, because our bedroom is not that big and a nice carpet will looked cramped in under the bed.

Next, I put together a mood board to pull everything together. I mostly used the internet to find these pieces, because I am lazy efficient like that! Here is my finished mood board! What do you think?

blush velvet pillow | gold foiled pillow | faux fur pillow

Many of the pieces that I’ve found are quite affordable, except for the bedside tables. Who knew these little pieces of furniture can be soooo expensive! I am still searching for alternative pieces that have the same look and the same finish. I just love th white oak finish. If you know of a place that sells these that are more affordable, please let me know!

I really hope to start implementing this soon, but now I have to look into funding this project! And maybe start making a list of things that needs to happen first.

This is getting me sooo excited. Keep tuned in so that you stay up to date on my progress!

Leave me your particular style or a style that you love in the comment section below. I would also love any additional suggestions or maybe questions that you might have!

Until next time – keep it classy!

Latest YouTube Obsessions

I’ve been totally obsessed with organizing and cleaning videos on YouTube lately. And I thought I would share some new and well-loved channels that gave me so many ideas and some motivation!

I’ve been following Brittany for over a year now. I love her videos because it is short and to the point, which I totally love. She specializes in organization, cleaning and a bit of lifestyle. I should also mention that she has the cutest son that makes his appearance in many of her videos.

She also recently started her own essential oil company called Vasseur Essentials.

Some of my favorite videos of her are handbag organization videos. Such inspiring work. She also has two other channels: At Work with Nikki and At Home with Bently and Albert (which is her pets).

Jordan is a self-proclaimed frugal guru and she shares all her tips and tricks to living on a budget. Oh, I should mention that she is a mom of six (yes, 6!) kids! She is a real superwoman! Thus she also shares her routines and hacks for getting stuff done!

I know her channel does not really fit into the rest of the ones I mentioned, but I love Jordan’s humor! She brings so much character to her channel! She also has a blog called Fun Cheap or Free where she shares even more information!

So there it is, my latest YouTube channel obsessions! I would love it if you share some of your favorite YouTube channels in the comment section so that I can have even more motivational content to look at!
