When I moved into my cabin last January the home was sparsely furnished and in need of love. The all wood house was your cliche cabin, but needed an update (in furniture at least) to make it a home that I'd be able to escape to. It's been a slow process, but things are finally starting to come together.
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!
After I had found my bed I looked for matching side tables that would compliment the wood, but also bringing another element into the space. After much looking, I chose two side tables from Target.com that were on sale (thank you Target!). I also picked up a grey, mid-century modern chair from Target.com in order to give myself a reading chair. After all, who wants a master bedroom at a cabin without a chair to curl up in and read?
I was torn on how I wanted to light the space. Most of the rooms have hanging lights, but hanging lights in every room can seem overwhelming. Instead, I was able to snag these awesome wall sconces from my boyfriend, Noah. They give the space a modern feel, but bring the Edison bulb look (that is present in other rooms of the house) to the bedroom.
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!
