Our master bedroom has gone through quite a few “phases” since we moved in. I’ve recapped them below for your amusement. And I have to admit, I still don’t love our bedroom.
I truly believe design is a journey and not a destination. My tastes have changed a lot through the last few years, but lately, I’m feeling confident in what I like and what I don’t like.
And… I have a confession about that: I’m graduating from my vintage, rattan obsession. There, I said it. It feels like a weight has been lifted off of my shoulders.
I look back at these pictures and it is crazy how a room evolves. Sometimes you go in one direction simply to realize you want to start over again, and there is nothing wrong with that! Design is like a never ending experiment.
Let’s dive into our master bedroom progress over the last two years!
The first thing we did when we moved in was paint the light blue bedroom. It had to go. We used my favorite white paint, Behr Marquee Eggshell in Polar Bear White. It’s a great white paint. Not too bright and no ugly undertones.
I really want our house to feel a bit more modern, crisp, industrial, and edgy, which doesn’t exactly scream wall hangings, bamboo, and wicker (Don’t get me wrong, I still love those things).
We DIY’d industrial, shelf nightstands, and they 100% capture the direction I want to go in. I loved these shelves so much that we also installed one in my office, and we plan to add some in the bathroom as well.
We purchased a new mattress from Tuft & Needle when we moved in and ordered a low cost platform bed frame from Wayfair to toss it on. The mattress has been wonderful. About a year ago, we upgraded the bed frame to the black metal one you see in the last photo!
The metal gives me all the industrial feels and the design is a modern twist on the vintage style bed frame. It compliments all the wood and the industrial nightstands.
I had always wanted linen bedding. It’s perfectly casual and extremely comfortable for every season. I purchased a white linen duvet and pillow covers from West Elm.
The rug has always been the star of the show in this room. Paired with a more industrial, minimal style, the Persian rug adds warmth and coziness to the space. We are currently using the black & white Aztec Ruggable rug, but I’m ready to splurge on my dream Persian rug.

That covers half of our master bedroom. The other half of the room is basically empty, minus our dressers. There is a cute little window nook begging for a lounge chair and side table, and I’m eager to decorate the dressers.
Typing all of this out I’m thinking, “Why is this room so big? So much room for activities!” It’s all about progress not perfection around here! Cheers.
