A Spa Inspired Master Bedroom- After!

A Spa Inspired Bedroom // The House of FigsEarlier this week I shared with you the before pictures of this master bedroom (if you want, you can see those here).  We were going for a serene and relaxing spa inspired feeling.  I am loving how it all turned out!  They already had a beautiful headboard, beautiful wood floors- a lovely blank canvas from which to begin.  We kept the existing duvet and added new pillows and a few new accessories and pieces of furniture.  I don’t like to be matchy-matchy and an easy way to avoid that is to add in lots of texture and neutrals.  The pillows in the back are Euro shams so they stand up taller, giving a fuller appearance.

Bedside table // The House of FigsIts always nice to have a drop spot for those spaces that can become so easily cluttered.  A little bowl and a pretty box on a bedside table are perfect for holding jewelry and hiding the not so pretty bedtime necessities- chapstick, lotion, ponytail holders, etc.

Above the bed, I used two of my favorite prints from Lindsey Letters– I recommend her prints and canvasses all the time!  Beautiful words for marriage and for life, don’t you think?

On the other side of the room, the tall chest of drawers was replaced with a wider dresser.  I surrounded it with a gallery of black and white family pictures and also added in a small reading spot.Spa Inspired Master Bedroom // The House of Figs

 The white curtains (my favorite Ikea Ritvas!) frame out that tricky window seat nicely making it feel like one large window.

Spa Inspired Master Bedroom // The House of FigsThis was a fun project and I’m so happy with how it turned out! Looking forward to sharing more with you.  I’m working on a few kids’ rooms right now and also finishing up The Spring Valley House.  More to come!  Thank you so much for reading!

A Spa Inspired Master Bedroom

Recently I created this moodboard for a master bedroom for new clients of mine.  They already had this beautiful headboard and duvet cover, but the rest of it needed some help to feel finished and put together.  They wanted a spa inspired space; relaxing and serene, inspired by the blues and greens in the duvet.

As you can see below, they already had some great things going for them- like those beautiful wood floors!   I wanted to keep everything mostly neutral and bring in some texture and metallics for visual interest.  I felt like the lamps were a little too small- I love a big lamp with some nice presence!  And the bedside tables, while they matched the bedding, they really didn’t play into the feeling we were trying to create- I wanted something a little more sophisticated, serene, and maybe even shimmery and reflective, like pools of water in a spa.  These were more like “look at me, I’m blue, and I match.”  They are totally cute and would work in a more eclectic and colorful space- and in fact she moved one of these to her guest room and it looks adorable- but if we really wanted the colors of the duvet to shine, I feel like we needed everything else to be a neutral and textured background.

This TV wall needed an update as well.  The clients needed a dresser and wanted to keep their TV.  Obviously the dresser is not the right scale for the space, but of course sometimes we just use what we have and it works for the time being!  They were ready to update it though so I can’t wait to show you how we changed this wall (and the rest of the room).Master Bedroom // BeforeSorry to keep you in suspense, but I’ll be back later this week with the after pictures! 🙂

Thanks for reading!
