Hello friends. I’ve been wanting to show you our master bedroom for weeks now. I shared an inspiration board months ago and I love how the room is coming together.
Let’s take a looksy at the inspiration board for fun.
I pretty much included all of the elements from the board into this room. There are still a few things I would like to tweak but it sure is a cozy space to hang out in. I also love the resort vibe it has going on.
We didn’t bring any of our bedroom furniture so these are pieces I have found on bookoo.com, thrift stores, online, or government issued. The rug, chair, and white side table are the items I brought from the states. Oh and Daphne, of course.
She does such a lovely job wearing my necklaces.
My first aloe plant is doing splendidly. Let’s hope it stays that way! The white table it sits one was a thrift store find a few years ago. I removed the damaged side leaves and spray painted it white. The crystal and brass pull is from the hardware store in Okinawa and was under $1!
The two botanical prints and wall reading lights are attached with command strips. It’s amazing what you can do with velcro and sticky hooks. 🙂
I’m sure you can tell which side is my husband’s and which is mine. Definitely masculine VS feminine brought together with a couple of the same elements. The left side of the bed has much more wall space so the bigger desk was appropriately placed. It was another awesome find at just $30.
On the other side is a floor length mirror and the closet (with a washi tape makeover).
Since the room is so long, I layered a couple of our rugs. The faux fur feels wonderful on bare feet and was under $25. (and here I was worried about finding inexpensive decor in Okinawa…) Our Chinese bookcase that we found at a local thrift store got moved to the opposite corner to help balance the dark and light furniture.
Have I told you I brought way to many pictures to hang? I’m glad I was able to use the bookcase for a little gallery display. It also has a couple of drawers and I added a couple of bins on top for extra storage.
The bottom shelf holds all of our “ugly”books that didn’t make the cut on our foyer bookcase.
The last couple of accessories I added to tie the room with the rest of the house are blue pillow covers and a woven wall hanging.
These pieces make the room a little more casual and comfortable. I really wanted a boho coastal vibe with the bedding and decor. The wall that needs tweaking is across from the bed. I’m thinking a few more art pieces on the wall. Of course the best feature in our master bedroom is the ocean view. It makes me smile everyday.
Whew! That was quite a few pictures. Hopefully you made it to the bottom.
Tomorrow I’ll be sharing an awesome round up of patriotic ideas for July 4th. 🙂
