Today, we’re sharing the Master Bedroom Refresh at Bliss Barracks!
This space is one I usually only share during the holidays. But recently I had the chance to spend an extra long weekend with my parents and catch up on all the changes they’ve been making around the house.
Like many of us, they have been hard at work painting and updating their primary home, Bliss Barracks, during the pandemic.
My parents started transitioning most of the rooms from a very traditional color palette of reds, blacks and camels to blues, greens and whites last Fall and have steadily been working to make changes this year as well.
As with most projects, it’s taken a while because they are doing a lot of the work themselves. Things are finally coming together though and I’m hopeful they’ll be able to finish the entire house this year.
In addition to giving each room a brand-new coat of Benjamin Moore’s Dove White, we’ve also been refreshing the linens, artwork and accessories too.
Their style is very traditional so we’ve been working around a lot of dark furniture pieces they’ve had for years.
Thankfully, most of it was in great shape which made the transition super easy.
One of the last pieces we needed to find for the master bedroom refresh was a coffee table for the seating area.
We haven’t really been able to treasure hunt at all this year because of the pandemic.
But recently we had the chance to attend an outdoor vintage event and happened upon the perfect piece for $15. We could not believe it!
My Mom has been collecting blue and white pieces for months now. These urns have been one of her favorite finds to date.
The preserved boxwood balls on top helped to pull in a bit of greenery and texture.
The shelves and plates helped to add even more color to their traditional palette.
In addition to collecting equestrian inspired finds,
my Mom also loves dogs,
trophies, tarnished silver and old books. She has a fabulous eye and always spots unique finds other people would pass over!
This year, my parents will celebrate 50 years of marriage. While we’ve moved around a lot as a military family, their heirloom bedroom suite has been a staple.
Their bed is huge and we’ve snuggled up here to read, nap and girl talk more times than I can count.
Their desk area is always filled with vintage finds and goodies from various trips. And it’s hard to remember a time when my Mom didn’t have lots of books around.
Education is especially important to them and they read to us constantly!
My Mom also gave us a love for all things plaid and horses. They’re both featured all around the house!
Now that the master bedroom refresh at Bliss Barracks is finished, we’ll be working to decorate the master bathroom next.
We need a few rugs, towels, and we’re going to do a fun blue and white plate gallery wall too.
I know sometimes it can be overwhelming to try and decorate a house all at once because there are so many decisions to make. But don’t lose heart!
Keep making changes, moving forward and making progress. Even small changes can have a big impact!
Let us know what decorating projects you’ve been working on lately!
