A Master Bedroom Update

For one newlywed's master bedroom, a little refresh goes a long way.

For a couple's small master bedroom, a little refresh goes a long way. When it came to furnishing their first home together, the bedroom was low on the priority list. This summer, the room finally got the attention it deserved, and The Crown Bed added some much-needed color to the space.  Below, the customer walks us through her choices:


For so long, I thought neutral colors were the end-all-be-all when it came to decorating my home. However, the absence of color in this space made the room feel barren. Our original bed was my husband's before we were married, and it was way too bulky for the compact room. We wanted to maximize our space, but a king bed was non-negotiable.

Luxe Velvet Olive Crown Bed


Breaking away from my all-neutral tendencies, I chose The Henry Crown Bed in Luxe Velvet Olive with Robin's Egg piping. With such a white canvas behind the bed, the depth of the Olive Green gave the room the dimension it needed. The sleek, modern frame of The Crown Bed (we still went for the king) gave us about two extra feet of space that was previously occupied by the large frame of our old bed.

Plush Pillows

We added Como Robin's Egg Euros with Como Kelly Green piping, then layered a King pillow in Pinstripe Gray Mist with a moss monogram. My childhood bedroom was light blue and light green, so subconsciously I was drawn to a more mature version of the same color scheme.

The Finishing Touches

We added the Coley Home bedding bundle into the mix, and it is hands-down the softest bedding I have ever slept on!

After about a year of living in our house, we finally hung curtains and added art. What a difference it makes! We went with curtains from Pottery Barn, and though they are not custom-made,  the black-out lining makes them feel more substantial. 

As a final touch, we hung a print from one of my favorite artists, Teil Duncan.
