One of the last rooms to receive a makeover before we moved out of our old house was our master bedroom (you can see our old room here). I really loved that room, but when we moved into our new house the layout was different and our room was much larger, so everything didn’t transfer over as seamlessly as our boys’ bedroom did. Instead, the room got put on the back burner and was neglected for over a year. (You can see it shortly after we moved in here. Not much has changed.) I’ve finally decided to turn my attention to creating a peaceful oasis in our bedroom where I spend a lot of time lounging and rocking Jonah.
We finally just added a new jute rug to warm up the space and it has motivated me to finish up the space sooner rather than later. We chose the Maui Chunky Loop Rug in Beige from Rugs USA in a 9’6″ x 13’6″ size.
I decided to layer our other rug on top of this one at the foot of our bed where I’ve created a small sitting area. This rug also came from Rugs USA and it is the Homespun Hawa Moroccan Trellis rug. It used to be in the sitting area of our master bedroom at the old house. (More photos will come soon as I start making progress on the room.)
And yes, the floor needs to be swept and mopped, but we’re all friends here so no judging, right?
I love the look of the natural fiber rug against our dark wood floors. I knew that natural fibers wouldn’t be overly plush and cushy underfoot, but we have a similar rug in our dining room and it has become softer over time, so I’m hoping the same will be true of this one. Plus, the other rug layered on top provides some added softness. Either way, it works well in the space and I’m very happy with it. Rugs USA is one of my very favorite sources for rugs, and they always have amazing sales going on.
As for my plans for the room, I’m going to stick with the navy but I also plan on adding some Kelly green/emerald accents.
Here’s a mood board I designed to give you a feel for what I’m going for in this room. (We won’t be incorporating all of these exact pieces, but you get the idea.)
Here’s what my to do list looks like for the room:
- Paint the walls (still debating between light gray and a bold navy. Two totally different extremes and I just can’t decide.)
- Hem the curtains and add decorative trim
- Add bamboo roman shades
- Build or buy nightstands
- Hang art
- Swap out the mirror over the dresser with the one in Jonah’s room (We will trade since this one will go better in his room and vice versa.)
- Spruce up the bedding (Maybe a duvet? More pillows? New shams?)
- Build or buy a new headboard (This one does not fit the bed frame and is scratching the floor, plus I’m not in love with it for this room. It will probably be moved to the guest room where we currently have no headboard.)
First up, paint! What’s your favorite paint color that goes well with navy decor? I’d love to explore all of my options.
Disclosure: I received the rug for free from Rugs USA, however as always all opinions are my own.
