10 Beautiful Master Bedroom Ideas

10 Beautiful Master Bedroom Ideas
master bedroom ideas from One Room Challenge

Do you ever feel like there is nothing hugely wrong with your master bedroom but you don’t… love it!

It feels, well – boring!  You’ve had the SAME look in your room for so long, you are not even sure how many years its been now.

Or you have been meaning to get around to finishing your master bedroom since you moved into your house.  The walls got painted and that was it!

Now it’s just that overlooked space, the dumping ground for clutter, a reminder of unfinished jobs… You would rather close the door!

Here are 10 beautiful master bedroom ideas to inspire you from guest participants in the One Room Challenge.

These master bedroom ideas encompass a range of decorating styles from modern to farmhouse to coastal.  Some rooms involve big changes, others focused more on the decor.

Some have DIYed their way through the challenge of transforming their bedroom in 6 weeks, others have gone with new.  Some of these bedrooms are small and some are spacious.  One room is even a bedroom in a rental house.

You wouldn’t know it now but what these master bedrooms all have in common though, is that they started out as boring, drab, unfinished bedrooms.

Jut like yours or mine!  And now… Read on to see the amazing results and find inspiration and ideas for your own master bedroom makeover.

What I love …

  • the moody mid-blue wall
  • this room has cat approval
  • the replacement fan
  • combining a desk/work area with a sleeping area – it works
  • what you can do with a rental and an accommodating landlord

Moody Apartment Master Bedroom

What I love…

  • added wall molding
  • a beautiful Etsy ceiling light
  • dramatic paint colors
  • the perfect find – vintage mirrors that match the molding

Master Bedroom Idea:  Want a dramatic, moody look but concerned about the room being too dark?  Try half and half with painted “dipped” walls.

Small Master Bedroom

What I love…

  • peaceful, simple changes
  • making a feature wall with gold wall paper behind the bed
  • same but different lights for each bedside table
  • an wrongly ordered headboard that turned out to be the right one

Master Bedroom Idea:  Be willing to get out of your comfort zone and try things you normally wouldn’t go for.  You might be surprised by how much you like the new changes in the end!

Eclectic Master Bedroom

What I love…

  • marble patterned fabric bed skirt
  • original art work above the bed
  • organizing for embroidered monogrammed shams

Master Bedroom Idea:  Personalize your room with small details, and of course some gorgeous flowers.
