It’s no secret that our bedroom is in my top 3 DIY transformations to date. The shiplap wall using reclaimed barn wood from my dad’s old barn revolutionized this room. You can catch that post here. I enjoyed creating a cozy lodge style space last fall, but now I am ready for a change.
With all the preparations for Lauren’s graduation behind me, I escaped to my creative place today in hopes of conceiving a more light and airy Master Bedroom Decor for summer. Without spending a dime, I shopped my home, and once again surprised myself with what I found. 😉
Master Bedroom Decor Ideas
This photo shows a good before picture. The first thing I did was remove the driftwood garland, ornamental iron headboard piece, and boxwood wreath from the window. The iron piece on the headboard just unscrewed 🙂
I love the simple change this made. I know, the twinkly lights were so fun, don’t worry.. I can’t not have twinkly lights 😉
Next, I moved this faux fur rug and placed it at the foot of the bed. That inspired a boho chic approach which drew to mind a garland to hang between the sconces.
What may surprise you is the material I chose to cut apart in order to make the garland.
I was in my closet looking for remnants of a cotton tablecloth I began to piece apart some time ago, and in doing so, came across a couple negligee I received at my wedding shower 21 years ago. I shook the dust off… 😉 and saw that the intricate details would serve as a stunning touch to the garland.
I bet I’m far from being the only one who still holds on to novelties such as this. So, here’s an easy way to display them proud!!
I began by cutting both the leftover piece of tablecloth and negligee into strips. What a simple and special way to preserve this memento I could never throw away.
I used white tissue tulle for the main ribbon.
As I was tying the pieces of material to the garland, visions of hanging flowers came to mind. I am so thankful for the vast variety of Afloral stems I have accumulated through the past months. Soft pink tulips would do the trick.
I love the way it came out! After finishing the garland, I carefully lowered the vintage window to sit atop the headboard. It just looked better with it lowered slightly.
After I finished the garland, I fetched that fun pillow from my office, and rescued those newly painted lanterns from the wet outdoors.
I was so pleased with the stunning elegance created, but gosh darn it, I love twinkly lights 😀
I originally wanted to use that branch sitting next to the bed, but I am still pondering how and where I want to use it, so for now it’s dressed in lights <3
The garland is still a favorite item of decor, and it sits pretty all on it’s own.
So there ya have it. A wonderfully productive Wednesday in my book 🙂
I would love to hear from you! As always, any items you may be interested in purchasing are linked for you <3 See you soon!
