Master bedroom refresh on a budget. Adding a touch a blue to a space is a good way to add color but not an overwhelming amount.

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 a NAUTICA comforter to our bed and thought it would be a great time for a master bedroom refresh.
The comforter in the photos in no longer sold so the one linked above is also from Nautica and I love the stripe.
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.
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 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 🙂
