Here it is y'all, the big Master Bedroom reveal. I know most of you have seen snippets of this space on Instagram and I'm so grateful for all your kind words and that you all love it as much as I do. I've always admired my mom's ability to make every room in their house feel like a home. Part of it, is paint colors and the layout fo the house. Unfortunately, while renting, there are huge limitations to making a space your own, but B and I have found certain ways to make our apartment a home.

Today's post talks about 3 different ways to update your master bedroom.


Add a statement mirror. 

If you have been following me for a while, then you know this mirror has been on my wish list for years. It's a huge expense and I saved my extra money (birthday, gift cards, etc) to treat myself to this statement mirror. I also used it as a motivator, I said when I hit x milestone on my blog I could make the purchase. 

This mirror is truly so unique and beautiful, it immediately grabs the attention of the room and just makes the space so much warmer. To make the space a little more like home, I added two gold trays to compliment the mirror and store items that always find themselves scattered across the top of my dresser. I love that it's stylish but also practical. Having a home for everything definitely helps keeping our bedroom tidy. 

Lastly, candles and fresh flowers are another way to make a room feel more like home. Since having fresh flowers isn't always an option, opting for beautiful faux flowers or a stack of boxes also makes the space feel like home, without being cluttered.

This is actually one of the only photos I could find of our master bedroom before the refresh. Before, the space just felt so empty and cold. It felt like it was a rental and the space didn't feel like ours.


Add Nightstands. 
Nightstands were a huge topic for discussion in our home. I originally feel in love with some from PB, but there was no way I was going to convince Brandon to spend that kind of money. I also had to way the cost/item. While I knew I absolutely wanted nightstands in this space, I wanted to have extra money to get seasonal pillows and other decorations. So I spent a long time researching affordable dupes.

I find that waiting for the perfect item can be frustrating, I RARELY regret the purchase. In fact, often times when I impulse buy, I spend more money and regret the purchase. These nightstands were a Walmart find and after reading the reviews I was convinced they were perfect. And they are. I love the color of the wood, it's the perfect shade for my style and totally fits the aesthetic of the room.

Also, I go back and forth all the time about adding a basket to the lower shelf, but for now it's the perfect spot for storing our slippers.

Add decorations. 
I love pillows! I think they totally set the tone and aesthetic for a space. I've gone back and forth about adding a third pink pillow, or saving that for summer. I opt for Pottery Barn inserts and slip covers. By investing in quality inserts, you can save space by only storing the pillow cover seasonally.

Additionally, candles also make such a statement. While I don't always "stage" a tray on our bed, I have most days while working from home. Having a styled bedroom gives me so much peace.

Picture frames, are an affordable alternative to art work but add the same effect. The picture frames above our space complete the space. They make it feel more personal and cozy. I intend on changing out the photos seasonally, along with my other decorations to keep the space fresh.
