When we moved into this house almost 2 1/2 years ago, we almost immediately got everything set up and in place. We’re not ones to live out of boxes (especially my husband), so we spent the first month or two decorating and arranging like crazy. So for the last two years everything (except F’s nursery) has been pretty complete. But you know how it goes…after a while you just get the itch to redecorate. So of course I started with our master bedroom. I didn’t do anything super drastic (although Philip might disagree with you), but a few little updates made a big difference in the functionality of the bedroom and the overall appeal for me.
Our tiny closets hardly give us any space, so adding a dresser added a lot more storage. Plus it gives me a place to display a little bit of my jewelry. I also added floating shelves on the wall next to my side of the bed since there’s no room for a table, but I needed some storage. I hated having a pile of books and my phone sitting on the floor next to me every day, so they solved that problem. I also added a few more pillows from Caitlin Wilson’s gorgeous shop, a new bedspread and pillow shams (since our old ones were getting a little dingy) and a shower curtain in the bathroom to hide the ugly sliding shower doors.
Simple updates, but they make a huge difference for me. Now I’m excited to share it with you!

Très chic! I absolutely love the pop of red at the foot of your bed. Such a clean, white bathroom, too! 🙂

It look so clean and fresh! Beautiful!
Beautiful! Where did you find the letters hung above the dresser?
they’re from Anthro — I added the link above! Thanks for catching that!
I’m a big fan of white bedding too 🙂 It’s so versatile and gives my room that spa hotel feeling without leaving the house! Simple is best…and wow that is a sunglasses collection 🙂
Beautiful! And is that Deliberate Motherhood I spy on your floating shelf? I’m on the POM board so I love that you’re reading that! Hope you join us at another retreat soon. 🙂
Where did you get the littler holder for your make up brushes??
It’s actually a candle holder from Target!
Gorgeous room! Love the bedside table 🙂
It looks amazing! I love the floating shelves idea, great way to add storage space!
I am loving your bathroom! Where are you storing your make-up?…the mirrored jewelry box? I was thinking of putting all my daily stuff in an apothecary jar or maybe a larger mason jar.
No, I keep my makeup in the drawers below the sink 🙂 But apothecary jars would be great!
As a California native I should warn you that you really shouldn’t have those frames above your bed
Looks so pretty and white! I’m afraid it would be impossible to keep it so clean with a toddler (or two) running around HA! love the inspiration behind the headboard

I love the white- it makes the room look so much bigger.
I love this room! what size frames did you buy from Ikea? Was it difficult to find prints for right fit? I bought the 50cmx50cm but thought maybe it’s too big.
This is just gorgeous! I’m redecorating my bedroom and I was wondering what color you have on your walls? Is it white or is it a soft grey?
It’s white, but I don’t know the color since it’s a rental house — sorry!
That’s ok! Have a great weekend. 😀
Great update. You are right, there always comes a time when your bedroom needs a redesign or a small update. It can be a big reconstruction or simply updating of sleeping things. I read a lot of tips on the site http://www.remodelormove.com/ to make your bedroom better. I changed my bed and replaced almost all the decorative things in the bedroom.
Great update! I also use like you various candles or reed diffusers from apsley to better decorate the room and create a good fragrance throughout the house. This is a great idea and I really like your bright bedroom, it looks very cozy
This is just a simple, decent, and unique room decorating idea. I am loving your room updates. Keep sharing such interesting living room or home ideas. Actually, I love to decorate my living space with handmade rugs. Thank you for putting more ideas in my mind.
