Modern Master Bedroom – Work In Progress

My kids have been off from school so I’ve been behind on getting up these photos of our modern master bedroom as I try to get more spaces settled in our home. While I purchased a few new pieces for this room, you may also recognize some from our bedroom in our last home!

Before we moved in October I sold off several things so we wouldn’t have to move them. This also helped offset the cost of new pieces. Facebook marketplace is a super easy way to make back some of your money on gently used furniture and home decor. I knew going into our new house the space was much larger and I was wanting a more modern design with larger night tables and more neutral lamps.

Modern Master Bedroom

We kept the same king size bed (it’s the light gray velvet option here) and 9’x12′ area rug from our last house. The rug is an affordable find and because it is a mix of gray and ivory it pairs well with our bed.

The art above our bed is Deb Presutto’s “Big Sur” print (34″x24″ landscaped) that I had framed on FrameItEasy.com. I have had several pieces framed there and have been happy with all of them. I decided not to mat this piece and used the Ashford Frame in White with the non-glare acrylic cover. I highly recommend paying a few dollars extra for the non glare because it makes such a difference in how the art looks on display.

We had a painter come in and paint about 50% of the house as soon as we moved in and we are slowly tackling the remaining bedrooms and bathrooms ourselves to save money. This is one of two rooms we are not painting and the color is Valspar Ultra 4000 “Stonington Gray”. It’s a nice medium gray, a bit darker than most of the other rooms we have painted.

One of my favorite new pieces in this room are these night tables. I love the mix of closed storage and open shelf styling. I also bought this bench for the end of the bed. At the moment it is sold out, but you can find similar here and here.

We have a gas fireplace in our bedroom which I didn’t expect to use as much as we do. Our bedroom is above the garage so it tends to be very cold in the winter. The fireplace heats the room up fairly quickly so when I’m doing try-ons over on Instagram stories you’ll always see I have the fireplace on in the background.

The art above the fireplace is a picture my 7 year told painted me for my birthday. He tried to make it look like Deb Presutto’s Block Island Summers painting and I absolutely love it. Again, this frame is from Frame It Easy. You can use code RACHEL to get 10% off on their site (expires 4/17/20).

My bedding is from Boll and Branch who is known for their organic bedding. It’s a bit on the pricier side but since we spend a good chunk of each day in our bed I’ve been super happy with it for going on 2 years. The Pom Pom euro shams are a Home Goods find from several years ago but this neutral lumbar pillow is a fun detail for any modern master bedroom and is still available under $30!

Window treatments are tough. I actually had a friend who is trained in interior design come over so I could bounce ideas off of her. The 95″ linen curtains are a great price point – THANKS TARGET and so are the stainless steel curtain rods that I grabbed on Amazon. The cordless woven wood shades are from Blinds.com. They are a custom size so a bit more pricy, but I love the texture they add to the room. Mine are the “ivory capri” shade.

Our full length mirror is old but you can find similar here. You can see above we still have quite a bit more empty space in this bedroom. I am still deciding what to do here. I’m thinking a space for doing try on’s and tutorials, but I need to figure out better lighting. There is just one small window letting natural light in. While it looks bright here, if the sun isn’t shining just right, it’s relatively dark.


We are tearing out our kitchen this weekend! Stay tuned on Instagram stories for updates on our kitchen renovation. I have also just posted an update on our laundry room there! I finished painting the base cabinets and we are adding in a temporary floor upgrade when we can carve out a few uninterrupted hours. I used the same cabinet painting technique I used in this recent DIY bathroom facelift. If you are wanting to do kitchen cabinets I’d recommend getting familiar with a paint sprayer in order to get the smoothest surface.
