I’ve been wanting to re-decorate our bedroom for forever, and have been planning it in my head for nearly as long. We finally had the time and budget to do it and I’m so excited to share our calm and uplifting boutique master bedroom makeover with you. 

You may notice that the vibe in this room is a little more subtle than the rest of our home, as I wanted to create a relaxing and chilled space with it being a place of rest. However I’ve still added some daring and quirky touches in my usual style!

Bedroom Before

This is the estate agents picture of our bedroom when we bought the house in 2013.

My first attempt at decorating the room (below) was definitely an upgrade from the above, but my interior style has grown and changed so much since then that I was more than ready for a change!

Bedroom After Makeover

Here is the same view now.

I initially planned to have a mural at the back of the bed, but then realised we would hardly ever see it. So I came up with the idea of decorating our sliding wardrobes with the mural instead which are opposite the bed and room entrance. I love anything fluted, so planned instead to fit slatted wall panels as a backdrop to the bed. It was then I saw this clever *wooden slat design from I Love Wallpaper to give the impression of panelling but without the cost and hassle of fitting it! It’s worked so well and was easy to hang with no pattern match.

Bedroom Accessories

The **crinkle duvet cover is lovely and soft and no ironing required! I made the bolster cushion cover from **leopard print fabric, and the green tassel throw was from La Redoute but no longer available.

The headboard was a DIY project that Andy and I did together as I couldn’t find the colour and style I wanted anywhere.

Here is a close up of how my bedside used to look.

And here is how it looks now.

The leopard pictures pulled together the tropical theme of the mural (yes, I’ll show you shortly). And here’s a link to the leopard picture on the other side.

The **bedside tables were from Dunelm, however I did buy new 3 pin legs for them and sprayed them gold as the original ones weren’t high enough. I styled them with some fabulous pieces from Abigail Ahern. Lalaya sculpture set, Kerala vase,  mimosa blush stem, and trailing eucalyptus. The fluted black vase was from Dunelm, as was the hanging planter (no longer available).

The stunning Whitney wall lamps which I’m in love with were from Made. They fitted in with the rest of the room and my style perfectly.

Boutique Bedroom Wardrobe Mural

Ok, you’ve been patient (or scrolled!!). Here are the sliding glass wardrobes that we had fitted when we originally renovated the bedroom.

And here is the fabulous tropical colourful wall mural from Hovia that we now wake up to every morning! What a difference. I’m so happy to have erased all of the beige!

Tropical wardrobe Mural

As you can see the stunning ceiling light fitting matches the bedsides.

Here’s the view of the wardrobe mural from the other side of the bedroom.

The detail and colours in the mural add an uplifting and relaxing tropical vibe to the room.

The shelves that are part of our fitted wardrobes were obviously unloved as I’d lost interest in the room decor.

As the shelves were so deep, I decided to reduce the depth by covering some board with the *slat wallpaper and pushing it part way back on the shelf creating a new false back and using the space behind as storage.

I bought new accessories that reflect my current style to dress the shelves.

Unfortunately the only items still available are the trailing eucalyptus and the Vera sculpture

I’m sure you’ll agree that the new decor has breathed life into the shelves and wardrobes.

I also added some interest to the entrance to the room and mirror area with a ‘work free zone’ print and gold hanging planter.

Don’t be limited to using wallpaper on walls. As you can see I’ve used it at the on the fitted wardrobe doors and sides as well as the back of the shelves. The only limit is your imagination!

We had our window replaced to match the one we had fitted in the living room last year.  This is the window area before.

This is it now with new shutters to match the living room and yoga room ones. I’ve replaced the dressing table with a teal **pleated ottoman, **artificial monstera plant in a **monochrome basket, and a quirky ostrich ornament

Andy replaced our old white panel radiator with this gorgeous black column one.

Here’s a full view of the shutters. They’re so easy to open and close each day and are a perfect choice as full length curtains were not practical due to the radiator being underneath the window.

In my mission to banish all of the white ceilings in our home, I decided to paint the fifth wall this yummy pink from *Lick. The shade is called *Pink 05 and I’ve carried it through to the coving, skirting board, and areas of the walls that weren’t wallpapered.

It’s my first time using *Lick paint and I was really impressed with the coverage and the pigment of the colour. It’s also wipeable and eco-friendly with low VOC and comes in a recyclable tin. The paint samples are peel and stick to reduce wastage and they are the exact colour of the paint. I definitely wouldn’t hesitate to use them again.

The boutique bedroom makeover has changed the whole atmosphere of the room. It’s now a pleasure to spend time in this comfortable and pretty space.
