Dream Bedroom After: New bed and pallet wall

Our Modern Rustic Master Bedroom Reveal

We made it to the finish line of our One Room Challenge! We’ve had many a late night and more fast food than I care to admit over the last 5 weeks, but walking into our dream bedroom now, it all seems worth it.
Before we get to all the pretty let’s take a peek back at where we started. Our master suite has been stuck in a half finished state since we moved in to the Dreamhouse a year and a half ago. Even though we’ve had our beautiful master bath, the part of the space we spend the most time in left much to be desired.

And without further adieu, come on in to our Dream Bedroom!

The After

First of all the unfinished wall got a major upgrade! The reclaimed pallet wood feature wall we created behind the bed is definitely the highlight of the room now.

We did apply a thin layer of poly in a satin finish to seal it.

Can we take a second to admire this fabric?! The print is just so much fun, and these faux roman blinds were another super easy DIY.

Opposite the bed we created a sitting area. I can definitely see it becoming a new favourite spot for morning coffees. I’m also really happy we decided to install the hardwood. It just makes SO much of a difference! It was definitely worth the extra expense – not to mention that it gave us a reason to add that gorgeous geometric print rug, which I think makes all the difference. It also adds a pop of colour that the other features may not have translated. The thing about redoing your bedroom is that you can design it how you want. The reason I got a rug like this is because a friend of mine visited a site like bazaarvelvet.com, where she got her hands on such a high quality rug for her room, that I knew I needed to invest in a rug for my room too. It just adds that finishing touch to any home.

Hopefully you enjoyed seeing the transformation as much as we did. In the coming weeks, we’ll be sharing more about some of the details that went into the room, including some of the stores that gave us our inspiration such as furniture in fashion, but for now we’ll leave you with this.

    1. Thanks Dannyelle! Coming down to the wire I really wasn’t sure we were gonna be able to finish the pallet wall in time. Using those boards required so much more prep work than I anticipated but it was worth it in the end.

  1. Beautiful Tasha & Kes…the wall looks amazing I wasn’t sure I would like it because I have a different style but it looks amazing.. Mum

  2. That wall is delish! I am madly in love with it, seriously it’s a show stopper! your use of colour is perfection too, pops to really accentuate your focal wall. It must feel so good to live in this room now and the carpet, you are outta here, that stain was ewwww, glad you went with that gorgeous hardwood and area rug. Worth ALL the work!

  3. Woohoo, this room looks fantastic! Love the rustic pallet wall mixed with the other more modern elements. The way you’ve brought the bathroom colours into this room is perfect. Love the bedding and that rug! Well done, guys.

  4. Every bit of this space is gorgeous, but my favourite part is that chair!! And the touches of purple πŸ™‚ You guys should be super proud! LOVE it!

  5. You guys did it!!!! I love that you kept the colour scheme consistent with the ensuite and brought in that barndoor colour in accents. The pallet wall is perfection (seriously, how did you get pallets to perfectly fir onto one another like that?) and I love that you have a sitting area in the room, too! It must feel amazing to come into THIS at the end of your long days!!

  6. Oh yes!!! So stunning! It was hard, sometimes, to imagine all the parts as a whole when looking at the individual item photos, but your sense of color and pattern combination came through… This is absolutely gorgeous!

  7. This looks fabulous! Everything from the wall to the floor to the styling and photography! Congratulations on a job well done! I’m sure you both are loving it all! πŸ™‚
