Brother’s Master Bedroom Makeover

Exciting day today ladies and gentlemen… we are closing on our new home! And while I should be talking about our new place, instead I’m sharing another makeover from my brother’s house.

Since he was so nice to let us crash at his place rent-free for the last 4 months, I spruced up some rooms in his home as a big thank you (his kitchen mini-makeover, guest bedroom, Ellie’s temporary bedroom plus two bathrooms underway).

Well today I’m finally unveiling his master bedroom. I showed you guys the mood board a few weeks back and it’s finally done! And in case you were curious, here’s a little before shot…

So as a bit of a backstory my brother really loved our master bedroom from the old house and wanted to steal the same look, just adjust it a bit to be a little less girly.

A lot of the color scheme stayed the same though, mostly because we pulled colors from his new duvet cover from Pottery Barn.

The framed prints I wanted to use were $200… gorgeous, but we were trying to do this room makeover on a budget. Maybe down the road we’ll add them, but for now I’m ok with the blank space.

Brother’s Guest Bedroom Makeover

A little over a month ago I shared the mood board for my brother’s guest bedroom makeover. This is a project that I’ve been working on all summer with the help of Ace Hardware. The first step was painting the room in a light clay color from the OPI color palette called Do You Take Lei Away from Clark+Kensington at Ace Hardware.


Then came the fun stuff… making the room come to life!
