Some interesting wall angles and the need for tonnes of storage really dictated the design for our master bedroom. Function and budget were high priorities so I decided to work 'pretty' around 'practical'. The neutral palette combines loads of natural texture with vintage elements for a relaxed yet fresh feel. While there are still a few additions I'm considering (bench seat, gilt mirror, another piece of art or two - oh, and my task lamps!) I'm pretty happy with how it's coming along. I’m also waiting to put some finishing touches on the built-in robe doors and will share the after pics of them soon too.

So, here’s the floor plan just to give you an idea of the room’s weird shape (BED 1):

And here's the space before (cringe!):

Well, that was after we already simplified the canvas by painting out the green walls and brown trim (Dulux Chalk USA on the walls, Dulux White Watsonia on the trim), replacing the dirty old carpet and removing the completely translucent ultramarine blue curtains!

If you've been following this makeover from the beginning, aside from being incredibly patient :-), you should also recognise a fair bit of the decor.
(If you missed any or all of the lead-up posts you can catch them here where you can read about, amongst other things, how I created the massive mapmade my linen throw and cushionscame up with an attractive blackout window treatment solution and used gift wrap for wall art).

Pretty much all of the decor has been thrifted, bought on clearance or hand-made and every piece of furniture in the room is second-hand. Here it all is pre-makeup:

(To avoid a massively lengthy post I'll cover each refurb in more detail in separate posts shortly).

Now, if like me you love a good before and after you’ve come to the right place!

The room is amazing. I especially love what you did with the tall armoire. What a transformation.

I love all of the updated pieces. They are so beautiful now. The framed maps are great too - I love all the colors in the old maps.

I am one of these gals that looks a lot and comments just once in a while....but I must say you blended all those pieces soooo well. I'm sure you saved a ton of money. It's all beautiful together and like no one else's bedroom! Bravo to you. Who needs a $5000 bedroom suite anyway?

WOW - what a great touch you added to each piece of furniture! What a difference the furniture looks now in your rooms. :)Looks amazing!

It's a beautiful room! I wish we have a room like this, then it would surely be hard to get up in the morning. LOL!

Now I call that relaxing! It came out so great, and I'm impressed by how well all of that pretty standard furniture became so beautiful!
