Our Moody Master Bedroom


The first thing I picked out for our new home was this gorgeous floral mural, by Anewalldecor. The moment I saw it I absolutely knew it belonged behind my head in our bedroom. The large scale florals and moody features are so wonderfully calming. It’s exactly the type of stage I longed to set for our new grown up master bedroom. I’m really excited to share this special space today.

I’ve had a number of friends comment on how pretty and feminine the mural is, but I think the dark moody shadows and heavy furniture pieces keep the master from looking overly girl focused.



To offset this huge piece we kept the rest of the master bedroom design extremely simple. I went for tone on tone grey and doubled up on pine to match our DIY white washed wide plank wood floors keeping feel of the space light and fresh. It’s been really fun giving our bedroom some love.

When Matt and I first got married forever ago we received a matching bedroom set as a wedding gift that we used for years, I eventually painted it white for this house tour, but I honestly never loved it. Plus in the little kiddo stages of the past 7 years our, room was more a place to crash and store unfolded laundry than anything.

But now… The kids are a little older and our room is officially off limits for playing and toys (cuddling still obviously allowed ;).

Getting to pick out furniture like this upholstered platform bed and these super comfy sheets from Joss & Main for our bedroom that I actually adore was an awesome experience and I feel like we finally have a legit adult master bedroom. Plus, you cannot see it from these photos, but the view from our huge window overlooks the Sierra Nevada Mountains and we can watch the sunset over Lake Tahoe from our bed! Which basically seals the deal that it is my favorite room ever.


Matt got a mid-century replica end table that picks up on some of the blues in our mural, toning down the pinks on his side. Our huge mirror is an old black steel closet door we grabbed from a friend’s garage once and have used it for years.



We still need to work a bit on our closet situation (any great closet systems you love?), but the dresser top has become a pretty space to rest my jewelry. And our simple accent chair is an easy spot for resting while staring thoughtfully out the window. I couldn’t resist the choose happy print, because obviously! And this pretty sofa will be a dream come true for our small bedroom reading spot once our expansion is complete.




Adding a little, low maintenance green helps to ease the transition from room to forest outside our window. I can’t even express my excitement to have this space set-up and designed just how I imagined. It is literally my favorite spot on the planet right now.

I’m super grateful to Joss & Main for coming alongside us in my dream for a moody, grown-up master bedroom. They provided some of the products showcased here. All the product selection, room design, and thoughts are my own.
