Modern Boho Bedroom Reveal
GAHHHH! Nothing is more exciting to me then a good ‘ole before and after. I’m so excited to share the final reveal of this master bedroom with you. If you need a refresher, you can read a background on Darci and Brett’s project here. It turned out to be the coziest and softest space ever. It’s just layered with tons of texture and color.
This is what we started with. The room itself was a good size. It wasn’t too small to where you were like, “I don’t know how this is gonna work.” Nor was it too big. It didn’t present any unwanted scale or design challenges. As my girl Goldielocks would have said, it was just right.
Their biggest struggle with this space was storage. The closet was tiny, made for tiny people with tiny clothes. It needed an update for our modern larger than life wardrobes. Since expanding the closet was out of the question (key ducting framed the closet and the shower is on the back side of the closet) we chose to create a “second closet” with the armoire. It fits all of Brett’s clothes and leaves the closet for Darci. We chose to go with Storables Custom Closet to create a more organized closet situation with drawers and shoe storage to boot! I wish I had a photo to show you, I’m now a firm believer that an organized closet = a happy life.
Their second biggest struggle was fitting all of the cute family members into the space for cuddles. Their youngest daughter was transitioning into her big girl bedroom so it opened up the possibility of more space for adding additional adult storage now that she has a room of her own. Since the room allowed for a king size bed (that they already owned) we made sure that even though kids move to big girl beds they can all still fit in the bed for morning cuddles.
I think it’s important to hide all visual chaos in the bedroom. It lets us sleep easier. The Restoration Hardware armoire and those kantha curtains do just the right job of hiding the chaos and while providing enough storage. I found those curtains at Cargo and as soon as I discovered Darci’s joy of kantha I knew I had to add it somewhere in the design. They are perfect for the space.
The rug is 100% plush goodness from City Home and the chandelier is from All Modern. But perhaps my favorite part of the room is the hanging textile over the bed. It’s my personal philosophy that all rooms need that “something special”– that “thing” that has a great story and offers good juju. As a decorator, it’s my personal mission to find that very special something for everyone…and create a storyline for the space. This textile is handmade from Pendleton wool remnants by the lovely grandmother of the woman that owns and operates 3 Dots and Dash. Aside from being an awesome store, where you can shop for more of these, they are a lovely family and so much fun to work with.
So there you have it, maybe the most nap-a-licious room I’ve ever decorated. What is your favorite part of the room? If you have any questions, leave them in the comments or shoot me an email and I’ll get right back to cha.
