Staging the Master Bedroom

First of all, thank you for joining me again! I've been MIA the last few months...I've been working on other big things in my life (planning a wedding, moving into a new place, starting a new coaching biz!), and put this blog on the back burner for a short while.

Nevertheless, I have been inspired to share with you how my bedroom transformation turned out (or former bedroom, I've since sold that house).

When we moved into our former house in November, 2013 it took me a YEAR to figure out how I wanted to decorate the master bedroom. It was like writers block (or interior design block I suppose?) except the block just wouldn't go away! Finally one day, I said enough is enough and I made a trip to my go-to decor store, HomeSense.

I wanted the bedroom to feel cozy and serene, with just a little touch of colour. I didn't want to go too dramatic in the bedroom - just nice and simple with the ability to change it up easily if I get bored with it. 

Remember how AWFUL it looked? Let me remind you...

Yep. It was that bad. Sooo... here's what happened. I went to HomeSense and went on a mad shopping spree. I literally bought everything and anything I thought might look nice in the bedroom!

So I returned home and went right at it! The room was a state as I was setting up my new found items as you can see...

Within just about a half an hour of setting everything up - VOILA.

I was amazed at how just a few key items can totally transform a room! Instantly it felt much more cozy and inviting.

Here's what I added:
- Rug from Costco
- Swapped out the bench at the end of the bed for the one I had in my porch
- Mirror I had in storage
- Lamps
- Lots of new pillows!
- Artwork
- Nightstands (more on that in another blogpost...they were an ikea "hack" project)
- Headboard (my FAVE purchase - it made a big difference in the look and feel of the space)

So if you're feeling "blah" with your bedroom right now, just know that a few key pieces added into the space can make a world of a difference! Go out and treat yourself :)

Have a wonderful day!
