Master Bedroom Makeover Reveal

You guys!

I’m so excited!! It’s my favourite kind of post today… a big REVEAL post!

After the last six weeks of planning, organizing, ordering, prepping, allan-wrenching, building, installing, art-hanging, and DIYing… it’s all done!

Our bedroom has a completely different look and feel then it did six weeks ago. Our closet is beautiful and organized. I absolutely love it. Love. it. all.

And I can’t wait to share it with you today!


Have you heard of the One Room Challenge before? It is a blogger challenge hosted twice a year by Linda from Calling it Home…. Bloggers try to makeover a room in their home over six short weeks!

And really, it’s four weeks, because the first week is where we share our plan and the last week is our reveal.


 So far in this process I have shared…

And do you remember the before? Of our bedroom… It was cottagey and bright and cheery; but after a few years I started to crave something more chic and mature. I wanted something crisp and bright and with hits of colour (blues and greens!) but with lots of whites and creams for balance.

And did you see our closet before… {eek!!!}


And now… today… the Reveal!!

Come on in!



Well! What do you think of the rug that I finally went with?  (if you can’t find this one in stock, this one is so similar!) Guess what? It’s actually the same rug series as the runner we have in our kitchen. And it’s quite a bit larger then our old rug; I was amazed at how much bigger it makes the room feel.

I love the Palatine tufted upholstered headboard that I ordered from Wayfair.ca so much! The neutral colour is the perfect backdrop for all the pops of colour in the space… (I’ve got a round-up of other upholstered headboards here if you want more inspiration).


We added the floor to ceiling board and batten behind the bed a couple of years ago as well, and even though shiplap is all the rage these days, I still love the classic look of some good ol’ b&b.


Oh, and these nightstands?!!? #allthehearteyes

The art I chose for above the mirrored nightstands is called Tide Pool I and Tide Pool II from Minted.



The new pillow covers that I ordered from Tonic Living actually started the whole scheme for this room. I love to start my design plans with fabric… something I picked up from my years of watching Sarah Richardson, I think. I fell in love with Windsor Park, Palm and ordered two square back pillows in that print, but they didn’t have an extra long pillow in my favourite second fabric: Zia Birch, Navy.







I made these DIY blackout lined grommet topped drapes in a white linen few years back and shared the tutorial if you are looking to make some of your own!


This stool!

I’m so excited about how well it turned out! I love the fabric we upholstered it in – Mill Reef, Palm from Tonic Living and painted the base with Modern Masters Matte Metallic in Warm Silver.

It’s a DIY that I will share all the details about really soon…. promise.



That light fixture!

Do you see the post about changing that from black to gold??

And the updated gallery wall! What do you think!?!

I love all the art that I ordered from Minted {don’t forget to enter the giveaway at the bottom of this post!!}. I’m going to be sharing all about how I kept costs low in my framing in a separate post, as well.




The other day I shared our newly made over mirror that I painted with Modern Masters Matte Metallic Paint in Platinum Silver and Gold Rush. I think the two toned faux aged finish of it draws together the different metals in the room.

The best part?! Right now Modern Masters is having a BOGO sale, so you can get two colours for the price of one!!


Today I’m going to give you a sneak peak at the closet; but there is so much to show in there that I want to dedicate a whole post to it!

I think my favourite part; aside from the amazing storage units, of course, is the fun wallpaper design called The Palms in White that I ordered from Walls Need Love!



Head over here for the full closet reveal!

  1. Such a beautiful room! I love the paint color. I’m in the process of helping my daughter choose paint, and I just posted a comment on another of your posts! I think I will have to add Seafoam to our list of possible. On the chip, I thought it looked greenish, but it looks more blue in your room. I wonder if it would go with red oak trim? What do you think? (She doesn’t want to paint it…)

  2. OMG! The transformation is amazing. I’m absolutely in love with everything about this space. I wish I could transport this whole room to my house.

  3. I was unable to enter the giveaway..sadly.
    No form to enter.
    But, love your bedroom.
    A couple of the prints, the mirrored nightstand, palm print wallpaper..and especially the rug.
    I followed the link for rug..one was broke and the other not the right rug.
    Lol..thanks anyway

    1. Hi Vickie! Thanks for your sweet comments! The giveaway was only on for the first couple of weeks after the post went live – I just went back and removed that from the title so it isn’t confusing for people. The rug links are hard to keep up with – they seem to change the name of it often! I’ve tracked down an updated link for you on it: Rug Hope that helps! aff link

  4. Love it! Great job! Can you send me the exact link for the rug in your bedroom? The link in your post takes me to Wayfair but not the rug itself, just a general rug page. I can’t find it online.

  5. This is such a calm space, yet your bold color choices put it over the top. Those pillows have me giving them all the heart eyes- just lovely! I am right with you on the math of the “6 week” ORC… when you are a procrastinating multi-tasker like me… well let’s just say it’s even shorter than 4 weeks! ha. But- of course it’s such great motivation to get to work on a space. I have to say I just love that pop of wall paper in your closet. It’s all just lovely. xo

    1. Thank you so much!! It is so motivating to get a project finished in a short period of time, isn’t it?!? I love that about the ORC!

  6. This is gorgeous! Great job! Your closet looks amazing and I loooove a white bed. We’re planning a second story addition and I can’t wait to start decorating the master suite!

  7. Krista!! I have been waiting anxiously for the great reveal and once again you did not disappoint! Beautiful transformation as always!!

    1. Hi Melissa! Aw, thanks:) I’m loving the new look and feel – thanks for popping in to comment, friend! Hope you guys are doing well!

  8. Love all the whites Krista and the pops of green and blue are perfect! That rug is stunning! Hope you get to have a relaxing long weekend now! xo

  9. Love, love, love that rug and the overall ambience of your chic bedroom. All the art and other decor are beautifully curated, too. Two admiring thumbs up, Ms. Krista. Cheers, Ardith

    1. Thank you so much Ardith!! I am really happy with how it all came it – it feels so cozy and calm and relaxing to be in, now!

  10. Krista,
    I love the blues, greens and whites! The art work is perfect and the rug is to die for! You really worked hard! Your room AND closet are beautiful!
