Finally, I can stop obsessing about decorating and painting our bedroom because I'm finished with the makeover! After two years of ignoring our bedroom we now have a very sophisticated and relaxing room to enjoy. After wondering whether or not the new blue walls were too bright I realized that adding dark wall decor really toned it down and made it look beautiful. I found the perfect accessories lying around the house and bought a few new things to complete the look. I think the most exciting part about finishing the bedroom makeover isn't spending time in it but taking pictures to share on the blog (even if the photos turned out horrible because I used our old camera). I am sure that I will be redoing the little things here and there (still have to find the perfect picture frames for the nightstands) but at least I can say the hard part is over!
You can't tell from the picture but the new, round mirrors are distressed black and have detail around them. They were the exactly what I was looking for when I decided to hang mirrors above the nightstands. We got the television mounted to the wall and I'm so glad we did it. There is more space left on the dresser to add more accessories if I want. I decided to lean our tile wedding photo instead of hanging it so there wasn't too much clutter on the walls.
Painting the bathroom doorway dark brown made a huge difference in the room. It really defined the two spaces and broke up the tan wall. The color is called "Traditional" by Behr. I can't believe I never thought of this before but hanging matching sconces on either side of the doorway really looks great! I struggled with what to put on each wall and then it hit me that whatever goes on them should be identical.
I even found the nicest piece of metal wall art for the bathroom to hang above the towel bar.
