I did my master bedroom makeover late last Spring. I guess you can call it Coastal Country Chic. I don’t know how to really describe it. I know this bedroom is far from masterful! But I do like the final results. My room before had oatmeal (dark tan) colored walls and had more of a country look. Painting the walls blue was a big leap for me!! I had always used different shades of blue when painting my son’s room over the years, but never thought twice about it, because it was a boys room. I do like this blue. The color gave my room a whole new look. It feels brighter and fresher. Yet, to me, it still has the calming rustic feel that I was looking for.
I changed everything but the furniture and the cherry wood blinds. I bought new bedding, lamps, curtains and pictures. It literally took me a FEW months to get the room the way I wanted. . . buying and returning lamps and pictures was the most difficult part of this makeover. I purchased the bedding first and then I worked around that. I also bought a new night stand for my side of the bed. I chose an off white colored night stand just to brighten things up a little more.
I couldn’t get a brighter picture from this angle for the photo below, but just to give you an idea of how my new white night stand looks with the oak wood. I did buy 2 matching lamps of the lamp that is on the right (above). I had this matching lamp on my night stand too, but I decided I liked it better on my dresser as you will see in the next photo. The point is, I think mixing up the night stands and lamps can work. What do you think?
