Modern Boho Master Bedroom Makeover: modern neutral boho bedroom makeover with lots of texture, a mix of modern and traditional, some DIY touches, gallery wall, and lots of plants.
It’s that time of year again, time to take on one room of my home and make it over in six weeks, with weekly updates here. I’m excited to be a guest participant again in the Spring One Room Challenge. This time I’m taking on my Master Bedroom makeover and transforming it into a Modern Boho Master Bedroom. You might remember last time we did our Kitchen, and I love it so much now -see the reveal post here. The time before that we did our living room and eating area -see the reveal here. And the first time we did the ORC we did our dining room -see the reveal here.
We bought our house about 12 years ago now, and at the time we painted our bedroom a nice warm beige. Our bedroom furniture was one of our first married couple purchases 17 years ago. My husband LOVES it. It’s a little traditional for my taste, but was part of a compromise at the time -I got to pick the living room furniture and he got to pick the bedroom furniture.
His love for it hasn’t faded, so it has to stay. I did convince him to let me replace the bedside tables for something more modern -although we’ll really miss the storage.
Speaking of storage…all those clothes on the floor are mine. There’s a mix of seasons and sizes. It’s definitely past due time for a purge and to get organized so that will be part of my makeover agenda this time as well.
We’ll get rid of this old tv too. It was great when my girls were little and they’d crawl in bed with me in the early morning, or someone was sick. But now a days everyone watches tv on their laptops so there’s no need for it.
Over here on the other side, I’m hoping to add some nice large plants by the window. And the chair will be replaced too and relocated to the slanting wall at the end of the bed, I think. The gliding rocker was nice for a nursing momma years and years ago, but it’s sure lacking in style.
I’m also hoping to do some fun art work in the room and a gallery wall on one of the walls.
The room will be painted a nice crisp white, and the light carpet and white bedding and new white curtains should add an airy feel.
Here’s my mood board, to give you an idea where I’m headed.
I’m continuing with the Scandinavian feel that I’ve been using on the main floor. This room though will showcase the traditional bed juxtaposed to modern pieces. It won’t be quite so minimalist. I’m hoping for a Modern Boho Master Bedroom feel to the room, with lots of black and white. I hope it will have a collected European vibe when I’m all done.
It’s definitely challenging to work around an old piece, especially when it’s the centre piece of the room. Maybe some of you can relate, and have to work around existing furniture too? I’m hoping that by contrasting the traditional bed with really modern pieces that the bed will feel show cased in the room. I’m taking some inspiration from one of my favourite instagramers here -Dee Camping.
Her room is very different from mine, but I’m inspired by the real mix of old and new, all the plants, and the simplicity of the room. I’m missing the old floor boards, and the qusint English setting, but I shall do my best. Think I can get there?
The Bedroom Makeover Plan
So here are my plans:
- paint the room white
- DIY some concrete side tables
- create a gallery wall
- add a new chair
- add lots of plants
- get my clothes organized and purged
- add some new accessories
- replace the tradtional light for something more modern

I’m so excited to get started and fall in love with this room again. Is your bedroom kind of a neglected space too? Hopefully a few new pieces can really make it feel special again.
