Plans for a Master Bedroom Spring Spruce-Up

Plans for a Master Bedroom Spring Spruce-Up

Aesthetics aside, I have found that what you put in your home, especially in an extremely personal space such as a bedroom represent times in your life.

Women have a natural nesting instinct that wants to surround themselves with not only beautiful items; they want them to tell a story.  It may be that you picked something up on a special trip or with someone dear to you.  Or perhaps it is something that just stands for a certain time in your life such as when you were a newlywed or when you had your first born.

On the opposite end of the spectrum, sometimes a room or pieces of a room bring not so pleasant memories, such as it was put together during in a difficult time in your past when you were struggling at work and needed a creative outlet.

Emotion carries a lot of weight when designing and it is important to listen to that little voice when it is time to let go of certain things and to possibly bring in something new.

I love parts of this master bedroom, especially the focal quatrefoil wall and gray upholstered headboard.  Now do not get me wrong, there is really nothing wrong with this room, but I am ready for a change.  Remember that post I did about losing my “design mojo”?  Well, that is what this room means to me.

Most of the smaller purchases were made with Christmas gift cards and cash several years ago and the side tables were selected under pressure after my whirlwind of a move back to California.

Spring represents fresh starts, bright color, and new life.  Re-decorating an entire room may not be the answer to bring a fresh look.  Needless to say, I am nominating this room for a Spring Spruce-Up.

A mix of rough weathered and sleek modern with touches of sky blue is what I want this room to turn into. 

It is going to represent my new, refreshed “design mojo”, my design brand, and my need to get rid of a forced feeling.  Out with those old feelings attached to these objects and in with the fresh new me.  With just a few key changes and I can get my new look without spending a lot of dough.  I even plan on doing some art pieces for the walls out of supplies that I already have.

These items are on my list for The Spring Spruce-Up Shopping Event on Saturday, April 12th and I look forward to showing you how everything turns out.  If you are in the Orange County, Ca area, be sure to purchase your event ticket and shop with me.

So, what is your story?  What do you need refreshed in your home for the spring season and for a new season in your life?
