Master Bedroom Refresh

I’m one of those people who prefer comforters over other type of bedding. I love quilts for the colors and patterns but not for the weight. That’s why for me a comforter is well more comfortable. I recently added this new NAUTICA comforter to our bed and thought it would be a great time for a master bedroom refresh.

Lately, I have been changing my mind between colorful versus neutral rooms and that was the case in my master bedroom as well.

I chose the comforter in khaki and I thought it would be great to show you how changing around the pillows is much easier with a neutral base. For now I am using blue as my accent but I have a feeling I will be changing that too.

I’m working on something really fun to add to the blog and I can’t wait to share that secret with you!

Earlier this year we added the DIY headboard and I painted the night stands Scandinavian pink. While I still love the headboard I was finding it difficult to decorate around the pink. I knew the best way to change out my look would be to create a room where all of the big, important pieces are neutral.

I painted over the pink on the night stands going with white. I decided to try the new One Step Paint from Amy Howard…I’ll do a blog post on that soon to let you know what I thought.

The NAUTICA Khaki Comforter came with 2 pillow shams.  I liked how the white looked in between the pillows so I didn’t use them at this time. The 3 euro shams and the 2 reversible denim pillows are all custom made. The extra pillow I added to the front is from HomeGoods and the leopard print one is from a thrift store (don’t fret, it was new!)

That gorgeous Eddie Bauer plaid and sherpa throw blanket was also from BeddingStyle.com and I love it. It is so cozy.

Here’s where I would love your input…bedskirt or not? If so, what style? I already have a bleached drop cloth that I was thinking of using for it but I’d love your ideas.

P.S. I’d highly recommend the comforter…it’s light and airy yet cozy and warm. Just the way I like it. As for that blanket…it’s my new fav. You don’t want to know how many times I’ve asked my family how much they love my sherpa 🙂

    You asked for comments re the bedskirt…don’t do it, the bed/bedroom looks great the way it is!

    You have been busy with your beautiful home with all the changes and it looks wonderful.

  3. I am beginning a small refresh of our bedroom and am looking for a new comforter or thin quilt. I really like the neutral one you selected so I will check it out! I keep going back and forth on a bedskirt as well. I’ve gone without during the summer but am thinking I’ll put one back on for winter. And did I mention how much I like that blue plaid sherpa throw? COZY!
