Fall Home Tour Part III -Master Bedroom Mini Makeover

fall bedroom 1

The idea for a fall home tour started weeks ago, when my friend Shannon from AKA Design was over at my house and I was giving her a little tour of the place. I commented that I had never really done a home tour on the blog, and wondered if maybe I should. Shannon was very encouraging, and I started considering which spaces to share. I was inspired to give our Master bedroom a little mini makeover. We moved in to this house about 7 years ago, and at the time we had one toddler and one on the way. So, when we thought about lights, we worried a chandelier might actually get swung on, since it would be very accessible from our bed. We lived with the boob light all this time. When I started thinking about the house tour, I remembered my original plan for a chandelier and realized that our girls were big enough that it was now safe. πŸ˜‰

We picked up this beautiful one at Home Depot. I love it. It’s so pretty and sparkly and adds a little romance to the room. I wouldn’t normally choose something so traditional, but I felt like it went well with the bedroom furniture.

When my husband and I got married, over 13 years ago now, I picked the living room furniture, and my husband chose the bedroom furniture. It’s very traditional and he loves it. It’s not exactly what I would have chosen but I do like it, and I think it’s very beautiful. The bedroom makeover also included some new bedding. It’s not too exciting, since it’s plain white, but I think the solid white bedding really helps the room feel not too traditional, and a little more modern hotel chic.

I decided it would be fun to add a little detail to the headboard for fall, with some grapevine, and rose hips. I went for a walk to find the grapevine, and pulled it off a fence row. I thought if look so pretty with the wild grapes hanging off of them, and pictured them dangling over the bed.

As I brought them into the house to work on, I stepped on one of the grapes and realized the staining potential…on my new white bedding and beige carpet and had one of those “what was I thinking” moments. My first job was then to quickly remove all the grapes before they stained anything. After they were removed I cut the vine into lengths and then attached the whole bundle to the posters with a little twine.

Last fall I noticed a whole bunch of wild rose hips in a ditch, and gathered some for my basement. I remembered the spot for this project and gathered some more, tucking them into the grape vine. I really like how it all turned out, and I think it adds a romantic rustic feel.

The room already had brown curtains, the brown coverlet, and the brown accent pillows. I wanted to add just a little rust and orange for fall. I saw a great orange knit pillow on-line, but when I went to the store to get one, they were all sold out. So, I headed to the second hand store and found a large orange sweater that I sewed into a pillow for the middle of the bed. I like the shot of orange.

I also wanted to add a few little orange accents to the side tables. I found this pretty picture on clearance, and its message is a great reminder “kindness matters”. It with a pumpkin and candle were the perfect orange accents.

On the other side, I added some pretty orange and yellow flowers picked from the garden, in a vintage mason jar, and a mini pumpkin.

The pretty sunflower picture on this side is one my daughter made me at school for Mother’s day several years ago, it’s a favourite of mine.

The other side of the room has our dresser on it.

Our room looks out over the forest that’s behind our house, and so does the on-suite bathroom.

The view outside is one of the very best parts of the room.
