The master bedroom was the first room Phill and I decorated and furnished when we moved into our home seven and a half years ago. We haven’t touched it since, bar updating some of the ornaments and bed side lamps. I still love our dark wood furniture, the burnt orange feature wall and copper accents but I can’t help but think the room is starting to look a tad ‘tired’ (pardon the pun!). I guess that’s what happens when you go on to gradually decorate the rest of the house – eventually the first room you done up begins looking a bit past its best.
I don’t want to veer too drastically away from what the room currently looks like. As I’ve already said, I love the dark wood of our bedroom furniture but it is now faded in parts and and some marks on its. The options are to get someone in to work their magic on the wood and bring it back to its best, or invest in a new bedroom set. If we were to change completely then I would probably go for a warm walnut wood with a mid-century aesthetic to it. Our current bedroom furniture is quite chunky and I prefer the more elegant tapered leg look of the type of furniture we have in our living room.
I am still partial to a feature wall, but I’d like to change our ‘Moroccan orange’ feature wall to a softer looking ‘copper blush’ by Dulux. I think that would instantly update the room and give it a more modern and romantic look. I’d keep all my copper accents in the room – including the bedside lamps and curtain rail but to up the glam factor I’d buy a few other bits and pieces in copper.
I’d love to get new blinds too – preferably something dark like these Thomas Sanderson bedroom blinds. When I go to bed I like complete darkness and so I’d love to upgrade my current off-white vertical blinds to these dark horizontal ones. I just think they look so much more elegant and give the room an extra feeling of finesse.
Lastly, I’d lift the carpet and replace it with a good quality dark wood laminate and then maybe just pick out a nice rug for under the bed so that there is something nice to rest my feet on when I get up in the morning.
I always like putting a moodboard together when I am thinking of redecorating a room. It helps bring my thoughts and ideas together, and allows me to see what works and what doesn’t work. If you are interested, follow me on Pinterest for more interiors inspiration.
