Traditional Master Bedroom Decor

traditional decor

When it comes to Master bedroom decor, I prefer to keep things simple and traditional. Clean classic designs, with neutral colors is what I love the most. I’ve learned in the past from decorating my bedrooms that any over stimulating colors or designs are not relaxing and defeat the purpose of a relaxing retreat. Learning from my past design mishaps, I now stick to simple classic designs that reflect that relaxing and tranquil retreat I’m going for.

Colors

This design style above is one of my absolute favorite. I call this style traditional simply because of the classic ivory, whites, and beige colors, plus the classic design style of the furniture. In addition, I like to add true traditional pieces to my Master bedroom with the great accent reading chairs.

Accents

For art work and decor, I like to continue the simple theme, with minimalist art work that has a calming effect. I also Love adding flowers and greenery into every room! I’m a huge believer that having plants and flowers indoors helps bring life and a relaxing feel into any space.

Lighting

For the lighting, I always go with simple, clean lines. Nothing too bulky or over the top that will clutter the nightstand. One thing, I always, always make sure a lamp has is height. There is just something so elegant and beautiful about tall lamps. Plus the tall height of the lamps helps draw the eye upward and gives great variation to the decor.

Bedding

For bedding, you guessed it, traditional. I like the look of white and ivory bedding because of how bright and welcoming it looks in the bedroom. I find that darker color comforters have a tendency to darken the whole entire room, and I’m all about the lighter side of life.

Dresser/Nightstands

As for the dressers and nightstands I prefer to get unique, oversized, pieces with elegant wood details that enrich the space and add a pop to the room design. The dresser is only second to the bed as a center piece of the room, so make sure it has a gorgeous design you love to look at.

Bed

For the bed, I love oversized, tall headboards that are upholstered. The upholstered look is my preferred style only because it is comfortable to lean on when sitting in bed and it adds a warmth and welcoming feel to the room.

Where to buy these pieces:

If you were wonder where to find any of these pieces, I have included the links below for you. You simple just have to click on any image and it will bring you to the site.

Just remember when you are decorating your space to stick to your gut. If you think its “not right” or “too over the top” for the space, then stick to that feeling and keep looking. I know I used to be so determined to just finish decorating that I would buy pieces even if I didn’t love them, but not anymore. Now I’m super picky, and will hold out till I find the absolute perfect piece.

Where I shop for my decor:

If you have been wondering where I have been shopping the most for me house decor, the answer is wayfair. They have great designs, that ship to you fast, and they have all held up excellent and look as stunning as the pictures on line.

Marriage Monday: Decorating with your Spouse

Have you ever had to decorate with your spouse? Well, if you have then I’m sure you have experienced the clashing of tastes and ideas.

My husband and I have been in the process if decorating our new place in North Carolina, and boy is it tricker than I thought it would be. Not because we are conflicting in ideas (that much lol), but more so because I can’t make up my mind on anything.

My husband is the real design guy. He can just get an idea and go with it and make it happen. Me on the other hand, I am not as talented lol. I second guess all design choices, including his, which I’m sure is very frustrating. Luckily, my husband is a patient man.

Anyways, here are some lessons I’ve learned in decorating with you spouse:

  1. Hear each other out. Really listen to what style and the over all feel you want to have in your home. After all, this is a space for both of you to live in. So, I would suggest sitting down and each person writing out a list with the overall look, style, and feel they want for the house or room to have and then get together after and compare lists. This way each person will have their thoughts written down and you guys can compare and see if you have any similarities in design ideas.
  2. COMPROMISE. This is the most important one. Both of you will not get exactly what you want. So compromise is the most important thing to allow for both people to be happy with the new designed space. I always say the best solution is to figure out what you must have and what you can be ok without. Both of you keep your must haves and be flexible on the other things.
  3. Buy, Try, Return. Buy new stuff that you think you guys would like in your new space. Then try it out, place it in the space and see if it works. If it doesn’t work and you don’t love it, then return it! Design is all about trial and error. Sometimes the things we think would be perfect for a space, just don’t work when we get them home. So be willing to make the trip back and return something if it doesn’t work out.
  4. Keep the design neutral. I try to keep in mind when I’m designing and picking out pieces for the home, that I’m living with a guy and he probably doesn’t want to look at a bunch of pink girly things. At the same time as a girl, I don’t want my home to look like a man cave. So we always try to find neural ground that doesn’t lean to far to the feminine or masculine side. (Though, my office space is super girly, pink chair and all!)
  5. BUDGET. This is a big one. Pick a budget and stick to it! Don’t over spend on design accents. The reason why I say this one, is because I personally change what kind of design I want frequently so I like to keep that in mind and not blow a huge budget. I would say make sure you spend our money on the big staple pieces like furniture that will stay consistent in your home for years to come.
  6. If you can’t think of where to put it in your house, then don’t buy it! Too many unnecessary design pieces is just clutter. Don’t over clutter your home with random design pieces. Keep your design accents simple and practical. AKA- keep your design minimalistic.
  7. Make your husband hang everything! 😉 My husband is super tall so it’s only fair he hangs all the pictures lol. No but really, it’s so much easier for his to hold up a piece while I decide where exactly it should go.

Lastly, HAVE FUN! Designing together with your spouse should be fun and exciting. It’s a time to collaborate and embrace each others differences and opinions. Plus, if you decide later you don’t like something, you can always sell it on offer-up or let go and start over fresh.

Stay tuned for some posts about my different design style for the home!

Dream Office Decor: Classic, Feminine Design

classic office decor with feminine touches

Let’s talk office decor! Have you ever sat and planned out every detail of a room in your head, or how you want your first home or office to look? I literally do that ALL the time! I love designing and coming up with new ideas on how to decorate a room.

As a little girl, I used to constantly rearrange my bedroom furniture over and over again just because I loved switching things up. There just something so refreshing about changing things up. Plus, I get bored really easily so changing things up a lot is just common practice for me. Keeps things fun and interesting in my opinion.

But anyways….the purpose of this post is that I have been dreaming of how to decorate my first home office and I am so glad that now I will have the space to do it. I have been brainstorming and trying to come up with ideas of what I wanted for a while. Plus, I’ve been browsing Pinterest religiously trying to find inspiration for what kind of style I want in my office.
