I’ve been meaning to tackle my master bedroom for ages and have half-heartedly been planning a scheme and searching for new goodies to furnish it, though for some reason I never had enough motivation to really get stuck in….until NOW!

NOW I seriously can’t wait to kickbox the heck outta it – don’t feel sorry for it though, it deserves it, trust me.

So, here’s the plan….

What’da ya think?

It’s a pretty small, irregular space with two doors, one large off-centre window and a built-in robe which takes up one entire wall. Rather than pretend the room’s proportionate, I’m gonna play up the asymmetry with some mis-matched furniture though will give balance to the overall scheme through consistency in colour, style and decor.

Now, I gotta apologise cause I don’t have any before ‘before’ photos of the room (as it was when we first moved in). The walls were green, the trim and doors were brown, there was a massively ugly light fixture, worn-out dirty berber carpet and completely see-through bright blue curtains – just lovely.

We got rid of all that pretty quick-smart so here are some more recent ‘before’ pics (cringe, I can’t believe I’m putting these out there – please be kind!).

Okay, now do you see what I mean about it needing its butt kicked?
Honestly though, let’s just say those pics weren’t taken on its best day.

The furniture is all outta my room from when I was still living at home with Mum and Dad – a bit sad, I know, though we had zero dollars just after we bought the house and never really got around to getting anything new (i.e. nice).

We painted the walls Dulux Chalk USA and all the trim and doors gloss white (as per the rest of our house) and although I would have l-u-r-v-e-d floorboards it wasn’t to be (not for now anyway) so we put down some nice plush carpet.

Hence, a new blank-ish canvas was born!

Soooo, that’s my starting point.
