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 everyone’s sleep (he’d get up early with Henry; I’d handle all of the baby’s wakeups). So for over a year, I’ve been sleeping in a “master” 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 we’ve been talking about doing up the upstairs master to make it into more of a “retreat.” Our goal was to make it look like a hotel room!
Here’s what we’re envisioning…
A gray upholstered KING-SIZED (!!!) wingback tufted bed
Gray walls with one darker gray accent wall
A chandelier <—I’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 <—for that maximum hotel feel
So far, we have the bed, linens, and paintings. We’ve painted the room, and the bed and tables are being delivered soon. I can’t wait to see it all come together!

What is the best part of your bedroom?
We have a weird master bedroom situation as well. When we moved into our house, we made our bedroom the guest room because we want to re-do the master bathroom. But the project is kind of on hold… for who knows how long. Our current bedroom (the guest room) is still way bigger than our room at our last house, so we’re not really in a rush. It just seems like a waste of a nice master bedroom haha.
