Now that I have completed the guest bedroom, Ellie’s temporary bedroom, and the kitchen in my brother’s house, it’s time to start working on his master bedroom. Yeah, I’m basically the best sister ever.
So since he’s a single guy, I wanted to keep this space neutral. No fluff, just classic design elements.
I went shopping a couple weeks ago for his new bedding and fell in love with this brown and gray paisley design from Pottery Barn (the Joli Paisley Duvet).
As you know I love to make mood boards before I go forward with the design. It helps me picture paint colors, textiles, and furniture and how well it will all work together. While these pieces in the mood board may not be the exact items I use, they at least give me a starting point.
This is actually the exact furniture my brother already owns. I’m thinking dark gray walls, pulling one of the shades from the bedding. Then I hope to accent the room with bronze tones, more grays, and some pops of green throughout (especially in the wall art and décor).
For the wall color I’m looking at Functional Gray again. You might remember I used this in my master bedroom and master bathroom in the old house. Actually, a lot of this design feels like my old room. Hey, if it aint’ broke, don’t fix it. Right?
So I hope to have this makeover done in about two weeks. Trying to get it crossed off my to do list before we move into the new house! Yeah, I guess painting is on my to do list for this weekend…
