I have been wanting to paint my bedroom one color for months and I finally did it! A couple of years ago, we added a board and batten accent wall. But the accent wall trend is fading, and dramatic walls are now in. In order to give a room a refresh, you definitely do not need to go out and purchase new furniture. You can simply transform a room with paint. I’m definitely going for a very cozy cottage vibe for our master bedroom. So, let’s get to it!
When we built our home, I decided on Repose Gray for our Bedroom. It’s a nice gray, lighter in color. Because we have a huge window, it pulls more green and the whole room tends to look green. After a couple of years, we added a board and batten accent wall behind our bed. I wanted (at the time) a bold color. I chose a very dark green: Regal Leaf by Magnolia. I wasn’t happy with it, and I ended up changing the accent wall to Boothbay Gray. And I love it! I decided that I’m over the accent wall and I wanted the whole room to be one color. The color is…Boothbay Gray!
When we first moved in, I didn’t’ want any window treatments to any windows. Since we don’t really have any neighbors, the openness of bare windows was perfect. I decided I wanted a softer and more romantic look for our bedroom, so I added some beautiful pink velvet curtains and linen shades. I love the romantic feel. But I didn’t love the contrast of the pink and blue walls, and I wanted something more neutral. I went with triple pleated cream velvet curtains with a sunlight liner. They’re not total blackout, but they provide some darkness from daylight.
Our bedroom set is OLD! We bought it when we built our second house in 2004. And I still love it! I have a new bed that I absolutely love, but it hasn’t been in stock forever. So, until that happens, we will stick with what we have. I’ve searched for new nightstands…but I have something very specific in mind. I tried to strip our current nightstands, but they don’t make things like they used to, and a lot of the “wood” isn’t really wood at all. So, I resorted to painting them. I started with Revere Pewter. But it wasn’t enough of a contrast for me with our cream-colored bed. I have now painted them the same color as our Theater Room: BlackJack.
I love a cozy layered bed. And I have to have lots of blankets when I’m sleeping…even in the warmer months. I just like the heaviness…it feels cozier to me. I love flannel sheets in the colder months, as well. I recently discovered linen sheets and they are amazing! You can change up your bedding by shopping your home and changing up the different layers.
Here’s my formula for a cozy bed:
- Add a fitted and flat sheet
- Textured quilt and Coverlet
- Hospital corners
- Add 4 pillows.
- Finish with decorative pillows and a fluffy duvet
- You can also add a throw blanket for extra coziness.
You can totally transform your bedroom with only paint! I painted all the walls the same color for a cohesive look. I also painted the nightstands a contrasting color, so they don’t look too matchy matchy. I added new curtains and switched out my bedding by shopping my home. My question for you is, do you use a top sheet? I never knew that was a controversial topic, but I guess it is. Let me know in the comments. You know I love to hear from you! Until next time Treasure Hunters!
