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!

7 great gift ideas for decor lovers

Hi friend, welcome back to the continuation of “Gift Week”! Yesterday I shared gift ideas for the baker and the cook in your life and today I’m excited to share some of my favorite picks from Woolworths for decor lovers!

Please note that this post is not sponsored. I just seriously just have a thing for Woolworths goodies. The opinion of the best Christmas gifts is totally my own! Woolworths have a great range of products to choose from, these are just the ones that stood out for me and what I would like to receive.

These gifts are orientated towards the living and dining room, but these spaces are in my opinion, probably are the ones we use the most. And there is nothing that I enjoy more than a space that is inviting and well decorated. I’ve really been loving teal, neutrals, and gold lately. Metals have made a big statement the last year or so! And I just cannot help but gravitate towards it. I’ve actually bought some rose gold pieces for Wiehann’s TV room. Luckily he didn’t mind 🙂

Aren’t these pillows just too cute! I already have some teal pillows and this one would just fit my collection perfectly. And a collection of throw pillows are not complete without a lovely fur pillow!

When it comes to curtains I like to always choose neutrals. This way I can decorate and change colour palettes without buying new curtains. Because let’s face it, good quality curtains are just too expensive to buy everytime you want to change up the look of your room. I don’t normally like patterns on curtains, but this Damask pattern curtain is just so lovely!

Nice photo frames are all the rage right now! And you just don’t have to use it for photos. You can put a nice printable in it, or use a dry erase marker to write yourself a motivational quote on the glass. This frame really caught my eye. I have a few light wooded frames in my collection, and I do like a nice floral pattern once in a while. This frame is a mix of both – bonus!

I like big and classic decor pieces. This way I don’t have to buy a lot of separate smaller pieces to decorate a space. And I can always add to my collection of decor pieces and don’t have to worry about my space looking dated next season. This vase and hurricane candle holder fit this description perfectly! The teal planter pot will add just the right amount of colour to any space.

No room is complete without a pretty lamp. This pretty lampshade and lamp base will go great together. Just imagine sitting next to this lamp and reading a great book sipping your favorite cup of coffee during the holidays… ahhh bliss!

That’s it for today. Thank you for reading my gift ideas for the home decorator. I hope you’ve found the tips helpful and that you got some inspiration along the way!

Till our next coffee!
