Welcome to our master bedroom. When we moved into this house I was surprised to hear that my husband thought that our master bedrooms were too “girly” in the past. To me they may have been boring (lots of beige), but I wouldn’t have considered them girly.
So, while I wasn’t ready to give up complete control of the design in our bedroom, I told him I was open to input. So he picked out this teal meets slate blue color for the walls and I couldn’t be happier with it. It is peaceful and restful but still current.
I also really liked the dresser that he chose (black, from Ikea):
I selected this manly “Bold as a Lion” poster from LifePosters.org, available HERE, that we framed (in a frame from Ikea, probably goes without saying! ;) )And, when we were in the market for new bedding we had been watching Hotel Impossible (we were running out of G Rated programs to watch on Netflix, what can I say), but I decided that I wanted “hotel style” bedding. One of my favorite parts about going to a hotel, is the nice white sheets and sateen striped overlay. So that is what I chose…
I really do appreciate how peaceful and simple our bedroom is. If you look inside the night stands (mostly just there to hold our lamps and on my list to replace!), they are pretty bare:
Haha, I should move the bible up to the top drawer, then it really would look like a hotel ;)
And the dresser is about five times larger than it would need to be to hold our clothes, but we like the style and how it balances our large bed frame:
In the end I really like the more masculine design of our bedroom, and it was fun to collaborate on the choices.
