Our Renovation: The Primary Bedroom

The samples and finishes
The layout

The LAST room I have to design is our new primary bedroom – I’ve been mulling it over for a while and I decided I wanted it to be warm, cozy, a little modern, a little traditional and VERY soothing. And while it’s no surprise the base is neutrals, the warm blush/faded russet color accent is very NOT typical me. I’ve ben saying how I’m feeling warmer tones this year, and the way I’d use them here is a way that would be very easy to swap out someday if I decide I want a different vibe. So here’s the board! Links and comments on each choice below:

Drapery Fabric- I have always loved this Jasper Michael Smith pattern and the all neutral tones and white background will pop on the darker walls.

Woven Woods– I always layer woven woods under drapes for a light filtering/ privacy option.

Art– I want the art to be modern, neutral and somewhat quiet. I love this piece by Chelsea Sommerfeld.

Wall Color– I loved this color in Andrew’s office so I plan to re-use it- Fairview Taupe by Benjamin Moore. A brown with a hint of grey/ chalky hint to it.

Ceiling Fixture- I looooove this fixtures by Julie Neill for Visual Comfort. Sparkly without being “crystal”.

Bed Fabric, Bed Pillow & Bedding- Of course I’m going to use my Ripple bedding from Kassatex in here, I love it so much. The bed fabric is a tonal boucle with some good texture and the bed pillow is another Jasper fabric I’ve liked for ages.

The Bed- I am having one custom made by LivenUp in the style of this one, but adding feet to it with the base in a walnut tone.

Bedside Lighting- I am going to do both small brass reading lights AND table lamps– I like having the option for either.

Nightstands– in a walnut wood, or perhaps these (a STEAL)- TBD!

Rug– I love a good vintage Turkish rug

Bench– A foot of the bed bench in a faded russet/ rose tone vintage velvet. Pretttttty snazzy.

Closet/ Bathroom Hallway- this patterned grasscloth is just awesome, either in neutral or blush. The double doors we JUST added last week to the plans will have these cute lever knobs.

Dressers– a matching pair of dressers, ideally in this creamy faux shagreen.

Mirror- This is from my soon-to-launch mirror line! Above the other dresser will be a Frame TV. Not that we ever get to watch TV anymore.

I’m really excited about this space (and the bathroom!) I think it’s going to be perfect for us and give us a lovely space to relax in. I miss our house so much, but know doing all this work is worth it!
