We kind of have a weird thing going on with our bedroom situation. Our real master is downstairs; once Henry was moved to his Big Boy Room, we moved into the guest room upstairs. Then, when I got really pregnant, I started to snore all night long, so the Husband moved back downstairs while I stayed upstairs. When Claire was little, we continued sleeping in different rooms just to maximize everyoneâ€™s sleep (heâ€™d get up early with Henry; Iâ€™d handle all of the babyâ€™s wakeups). So for over a year, Iâ€™ve been sleeping in a â€œmasterâ€ filled with mismatched hand-me-down furniture.
Not exactly the master retreat one dreams about!
But about two months ago, Claire moved out and the Husband moved back upstairs. So weâ€™ve been talking about doing up the upstairs master to make it into more of a â€œretreat.â€ Our goal was to make it look like a hotel room!
Hereâ€™s what weâ€™re envisioningâ€¦
Gray walls with one darker gray accent wall
A chandelier <â€”Iâ€™m thinking of doing this IKEA hack to save money
Colorful artwork (from Home Goods)
A white frame collage wall of family pictures
Mercury glass lamps, perhaps like these beauties
Big, fluffy ALL WHITE bed linens <â€”for that maximum hotel feel
So far, we have the bed, linens, and paintings. Weâ€™ve painted the room, and the bed and tables are being delivered soon. I canâ€™t wait to see it all come together!
