Relaxing Master Bedroom


I’m at it again! The last design board I created was for my friend, Kassi’s bathroom. Since then, I’ve helped another friend do something similar, plus started on my bathroom update! My friend Kassi is ready to start working on her master bedroom and I can’t wait. I always suggest that the master be the FIRST room we work on rather than the last because we so often fall into the trap of decorating for what and where other people see instead of for ourselves. Our home is for us! We should decorate for ourselves first and then since it is a representation of ourselves others will immediately feel it. Don’t put off your “me” space! In fact, email me and let me help you get started! There. Off my soapbox for now.

We are pretty much starting with a blank slate. yay! Sarah picked a fun seagull canvas for this month’s design collaboration challenge and I thought it was the perfect color palette for Kassi’s new relaxing master bedroom.

Carissa Miss: Relaxing Master Bedroom
The high, tufted, wing-back headboard was my starting point. I’ve known it was what her big, empty bedroom needed right as I walked in. I hope to fill it with beautiful rustic dresser and nightstands like these from Restoration Hardware, but unless there’s an awesome sale, I’ll be substituting…
She has a similar style to me, so I knew she’d love the same striped bedding I have and when I showed her my design she told me she already had the Rugs USA rug in Indigo in her office! {can we be any more alike?}
I’m loving the pineapple trend and love this simple geometric print. I paired with the yellow “love” pillow, a fun teal ikat pillow, and a simple mint throw pillow from H&M’s home line; cheap and easy to mix and match.
I still am trying to find a place for this Urban Outfitter’s Honeycomb pendant in my house, but until I do I’ll keep urging clients to buy it! It really is so versatile. If we don’t use this one then we for sure will pick one of their other fun pendants.
My favorite part of this monthly challenge is seeing how different each of our design boards turn out! 
I love the painting Sarah chose, and I used it as a jumping point for a very bright, very cheery living room, using a lot of vintage pieces mixed with a few Ikea and West Elm staples.
