master bedroom update (part 2)

In Part 1 on Monday, I told you we’re going to be redoing our bedroom, despite being almost done with it.  However, this redoing isn’t a complete waste, seeing as I’ll just move everything into our guest room.  This is the beauty from Crate&Barrel that inspired the change:

Everybody meet Del Re.  Gorgeous, isn’t she?  I was hesitant to buy her at first, since I knew I’d have to pretty much start from square one in terms of design, but with her $400 sale price tag (plus my designer discount on top of that), how could I say no to a bed that was originally over $2,000?  That’s right, I couldn’t.  Not only does it look awesome, it’s made of bamboo (hello eco-friendly), and crafted using the supercool traditional chinese joinery (Arch history nerd alert!), so yeah, to put it mildly, I was excited about this bed.

Noel was in love with it because he wanted a “low bed,” and he’s a huge fan of clean, modern lines.  According to the Home Goods Stylescope quiz (yes, I made him take it), his style was Urban Funk mixed with Modern Metro, and our new design speaks a lot more to that (plus a little bit of Farmhouse Glam thrown in for me).  Okay, I’ll quit teasing you all and show you the inspiration board.

1 . Crate & Barrel Del Re Bed  |  2. DIY Rope Shelf  |  3. Z Gallerie Gabriel Pillow 
4. Thrift Store Nightstand  |  5. DIY Chandelier  |  6. Lamps Plus Green Cube Pillow 
7. Crate & Barrel Cooper Brass Vase  |  8. Z Gallerie Bella Bedding

You like? I like. I found that fabulous nightstand for $25 bucks, and have big plans for it.  Hint: it’s going to hang, and be turned into two nightstands. I think I’ll distress it a little more, but I actually like the green a lot.  It complements the gold chandelier (which will hang above it).  And guess what else: I made that chandelier out of toilet paper tubes.  No way, right?  I’ll post that tutorial after the holidays.  Because of the holidays, I’ll be taking a little blogging break, but I’ll be back in the new year with all sorts of goodies for you all.  Have a wonderful holiday season!

  1. LOVE. I liked your old bedroom idea, but this one is totally off the hook. (I was Farmhouse Glam on that quiz, too.)
