The master bedroom was drab when I first arrived. The room lacked all furniture except an oversized wooden bookcase that did not match the esthetic I wanted. Prior to moving in the previous owner updated the burnt orange (total 70's!) carpet with a light beige color. It was a definite improvement, but only the beginning to making the room an oasis. My eclectic taste wanted to mix a vintage bed with mid-century modern furnishings, and a quilt fit for cuddling up in during the cold winter months. The room is not yet complete, but it's starting to resemble the room I've imagined.
I started my journey by scouring Craig's List for a few months in search of the perfect wrought iron bed frame. Unfortunately, I was reminded that bed frames from the early 1900's were typically only doubles, not queens. Due to this, I decided a vintage inspired bed frame would due just fine (I have had a vintage frame extended from double to queen and it was definitely worth it! It costs about $300.). I was lucky enough to score a beautiful my beautiful bed for only $200! Below, you can see my excitement as I waited to load it in the truck!
As you can see, I still have some work to go! I'm thinking baskets on the lower shelves of the night stands, as well as some cabin chotskies for the top. I'm also on the look out for an afghan for over the chair and some funky art/faux taxidermy for the wall. Stay tuned to see how I finish this space up!
