Master Bedroom Reveal

This post contains affiliates, which means if you make a purchase through a link I may receive a commission

It's finally here! The first really "complete" room in our house. Granted, we've only lived here a month but I am not terribly patient so it seems like it's taking forever to get everything put together. I know that's not really true, and we made great time on this space. I think it's mostly because I had a really concrete plan and vision for the room, so that helps.

I wanted the space to be white, light, airy and sophisticated  - like a luxury hotel. I am so happy with how everything turned out!

The star of this show is definitely our bed. We absolutely love it! We had been sleeping on the cheap mattress we purchased when we got married and let's just say it was not up to par and I'm so glad to be done with it! After visiting a few mattress stores and debating about buying online and traditional vs. memory foam (I guess I should write a whole post on choosing a mattress haha) we ended up taking a total leap and buying the Wayfair Sleep 14" Plush mattress and we really do love it. It comes rolled up and then expands when you open it, and we have zero complaints so far.

The gorgeous white tufted headboard is from Joss and Main and it's everything I've ever dreamed of. I have always wanted a bed that was tall for some reason - it just feels grand to me. I knew I wanted a pure white tufted headboard, with wingback sides and this one was perfect and is such a good price.

 I wanted the room to also have some modern touches, so I paired the traditional headboard with a geometric coverlet and euro pillows and a simple duvet cover (all from Target, but now discontinued Similar Quilt | Similar Europillows | Similar Duvet). I already had the Kelly Wearstler bengal bazaar pillows and they add the perfect pop of pattern to the all-white palette.

The dresser was a great find at Ashley Furniture Home Store when we were in there looking for something else. I loved that it was nice and tall to add some height to the room. Above it hangs my favorite-ever Home Goods score of this huge and beautiful abstract painting. I adore it. I was even very patient and waited for it to go on clearance before purchasing...so lucky it was still there when I checked back a few weeks later!

If you watch my Insta Stories you know I was scouring the internet/stores for a clean-lined but well-sized white lamp to go here. I was even considering paying around $300 for one I liked from Pottery Barn. Then I happened to pop into Tuesday Morning one day and found this one - the perfect thing! I was prepared to pay the usual price of $50 or $60, but it was on 60% off clearance and I ended up getting it for $19! I still can't believe that! The large gold vase was another Home Goods (similar here).

The dresser came with more traditional pulls and I changed them out for these gold and mother of pearl knobs from Hobby Lobby.

Our enormous bedroom window faces east and lets in the most beautiful morning light. I dressed it with the same favorite brass curtain rods and white curtains as downstairs (I shared about them here). We also needed some sort of blinds or shades for privacy and light blocking, and though you can't really see it in these photos, we went with the roman shades from Select Blinds and are very happy with the quality.


For the nightstands I wanted something more on the modern end, and these white Greek Key nightstands fit in perfectly. I love the detail on the drawer front. (The nightstands are out of stock in white everywhere right now, but hopefully should come back soon!)

I styled them with my favorite modern brass frames above, filled with black and white family photos. Some designers think it's in bad taste to display family photos, and it can definitely be cheesy or overworked if not executed properly. But these photos make me so happy (and that's the whole point of living in your house!) and I think displaying them in an elegant way really makes all the difference. I adore how it turned out.

These lamps on the nightstands were another great find. My inspiration for this room was Monika Hibbs' gorgeous master and she has lamps exactly like this, except in white. I stumbled across these gray ones at TJ Maxx one day for $35 a piece and was so thrilled I found exactly what I was looking for! Originally I thought I would paint them white but I like the contrast the gray brings once I pulled it all together.

One of my favorite elements is the quatrefoil mirror above the bed. It's from Target but I think it's such a statement piece. One of my favorite things about this house is the vaulted ceilings in the master, and the mirror really helps draw attention to the great height of the ceilings.

I really wanted to change out the light fixture in this room, and I may still, but for right now the existing fan was the most practical. I don't really love that it's so dark in the middle of our white space, and I may either change it out for a lighter fan (since my husband likes a fan) or a beaded chandelier (my choice). I keep trying to remind myself that not everything has to be done at once ; )

I am so happy to have this room finished, and it makes me smile every time I walk in. I think often the master bedroom is an afterthought because there are just so many other spaces to worry about, and who really sees it anyway? That's definitely how it was at our last house. But when I turned 30 this summer I vowed it was time to move on from the dresser set I had had since I was 4 (no joke) and the squeaky newlywed mattress to something that was fresh and sophisticated and felt like a couple of adults lived there. A place we could relax and and unwind at the end of the day. I think we achieved it!

  10. I love love love your room! I'm using it as inspiration while designing my master bedroom. I just painted the walls, have white nighstands on the way, and just ordered the exact same quadrefoil mirror from Target. Thank you for the ideas and links! Did you ever trade out the light fixture? If so, what did you end up going with? I have the same opinion, as far as wanting to now get rid of my darker ceiling fan. I'm considering maybe switching it out for a drum shaped pendant light with a white fabric shade.
