Bedroom/Bathroom Makeover

I have been promising for a long time to share our master bedroom/bathroom makeover with you and finally I am able! It was a lot of work to get the rooms to the point where I was able to post photos but the rooms are 99% complete so I am happy to share them with you. The biggest problem with our bedroom is that it’s massive, not in a good way. All of our furniture was too small but I didn’t want to break the bank and buy all new furniture. I figured I could purchase a couple of pieces to help fill in the space but the rest was going to have to work for now. The goals for our bedroom and bath were to make it feel more cozy and showcase our family. I wanted a space where I could relax and end/start the day with very positive emotions. We all know that when you have children, you have tough days and no matter how difficult the day I wanted to feel relaxed and crazy in love with my family.

Reading nook. We have this cute little cove adjacent to our bed. I decided to make a bunch of throw pillows and add a pendant light to make it feel smaller and cozier.

Picture ledge above bed. I purchased the ledge from Pottery Barn, they are three separate 4′ sections, combined to make a 12′ ledge. Then I added a combination of framed photos and canvases along with shells from our last vacation to add interest.

We also have a sitting area in our bathroom, I made a couple of pillows for this area as well.

There is a separate space for the toilet, in this area I painted it “saffron” to add to the nautical feel

Bathroom, looking in from bedroom. In here, I painted the walls with navy blue stripes. I’ve always dreamed of living near the ocean so this nautical theme felt great and worked perfectly with the vacation accessories in our bedroom.

    So cute! Our master is also way too large for our furniture… I may borrow a couple of your ideas to make it feel cozier. I especially love the reading nook and the shelf above the bed!

    Also, you have totally inspired me to paint stripes in our bathroom. Love!

      Thanks Sam! You know what really helped the space and I just cannot get enough of are throw pillows. We’ve talked about our love for throw pillows :) but they really make a space feel “softer” and more cozy. The only thing I advise it to make sure you use down or a down blend, you will not achieve the same look with synthetic inserts.

    Jess I love it all! I am so excited about your bold color choices and how cozy it feels from the pictures. I also love all the little nooks and fun architecture, so what I’m looking for. I hope you feel great in the beginning and at the end of your day now!

    Wow. Well done. Love the splash of color and mix of patterns and solids. I can’t wait to see this in person soon … with wine in hand of course. Bravo. Thanks for sharing and inspiring us.

      Jeff, coming from a creative person like yourself, I am so flattered! Thank you and I cannot wait for you to see it in person either!! (with vino of course)

    So cool Jess! You have such style, creativity & imagination. We’ve lived in our house for almost a year & I still don’t really know what to to with some parts of it. Are you for hire?

    • jessdennis says:

      Hi MaryBeth, thank you for your compliments. I would be happy to come to your house and take a look around to see what suggestions I could give. Please let me know if you’d like me to do this :) have a great night!
