Today I’m excited to take part in the Stylin’ Blogger Home Tours with Lindsay from White Buffalo Styling Co. If you’re joining in from DesignPost Interiors, welcome! If you’re new around here, then slip off your shoes and grab a cocktail, because we’re about to jump right in. The tour is all about our favorite room, but I couldn’t decide which room was my favorite (that’s kinda like asking me to pick a favorite kid or a fave song), so I turned to my peeps on Intagram + Facebook, who voted for the master bedroom, so that’s what I’m sharing today.
My personal style is kinda modern, quirky farmhouse. We live wayyyyyyyy out in the country, so it was only fitting to stick to a bit of farmhouse flair. And while I like a tiny hint of vintage, most of what you see will be more modern style. There’s a bit of other stuff thrown in, but everything new I buy has more modern lines.
The only real heirloom piece of furniture I own is the chest of drawers that my mom gave me when I moved here. We bought our house from my parents, and when they moved she left this piece for me. It’s solid wood and seriously sturdy, but was sporting a rough finish, so I sanded it all and painted it emerald green. I was afraid we’d get tired of the color, but over a year later I still adore it. I left the original handles untouched, though, I just couldn’t bear to change it completely.
My lucky find in this room was the Homegoods rug, which perfectly matched both the furniture and the drapes I made (and it was on clearance – isn’t that the best?)
Speaking of the curtains, you can learn all about how I made them with my tutorial for easy lined curtains. I get questions about them all the time, and the fabric is from Online Fabric Store – and you can find it <HERE>
Another project I get a lot of questions about is that little hello pillow. And yeah, I made it too (I just can’t seem to help myself!) It sits on a clearance Homegoods chair, along side the Target clearance little table. (I’m a sucker for a clearance rack, yo!)
I like adding in touches of fun stuff like the “WORD” art, but still keeping it real by decorating with things like branches (because – hello! – they’re free!) P.S. – the headboard is a DIY, too.
The focal wall behind our bed is planked (to help eliminate that mobile home look). It was such a quick project, but it oozed farmhouse charm and we adore how it turned out.
I even made the little pillow on our bed with some of the lyrics to one of our favorite songs.
It can be a little hard sometimes to not get too girly, especially in a master bedroom, but I hope I’ve found a great mixture of masculine stuff that he can live with. But, I’ve gotta keep it real, and tell you that I may have the world’s most amazing husband because he truly doesn’t care how I decorate as long as I’m happy. With that said, I still try to decorate in a way that he’ll love as much as I do. I’m not a flowers and lace kinda girl, so it’s much easier, but still. Finding that balance of comfort and design isn’t always easy (which is why I always lean towards comfort first.)
Which is exactly why I keep the disco balls on my side of the bed. Because they’re too girly, ya know?
And that’s it for my bedroom! Jump on over to see the next house on the tour over at Dream Green DIY.
