This month, I’m sharing this Breezy Bedroom for my friend Kala from The Breezy Room. She’s been leaving sweet comments forever and when she mentioned they were moving into a new place that would need some inspiration, I offered to come up with a mood board for her. She said yes, and even though the refresh isn’t done on her end yet, I can’t wait for you to see how big of a difference some of these small changes have made! Let’s look at some ‘before’ photos, shall we?
The room is huge! It has so much potential. Kala was quick to point out the wall and trim colour would be the first to go and that she was open to painting any of the furniture they have. I should tell you that Kala is an amazing painter- she can paint any curbside find to look stunning. Having a budget of only $500 for the room makeover (other than paint), I knew I’d be calling on her and her hubby’s DIY skills. She threw out the idea of a reclaimed wood headboard, which I loved, so I ran with that. Kala had picked also out a bright white for her trim and a breezy colour for the walls- Sherwin Williams Sea Salt. She wanted the room to be calm and relaxing but with grounding elements that would make it a comfortable space for her husband as well.
Here’s a breakdown of what I recommended:
Paint Color: Sherwin Williams Sea Salt, Bright White for trim
Headboard/footboard: DIY with Pallet Wood or Reclaimed Wood
Bedding: West Elm Pintuck in White $139 (King) plus $60 for two shams
Rug $173 Target
Bench I used this one ($284) for the image but the idea was a coffee table DIYd into a bench with a tutorial like this(since the two of them are so handy!)
Nightstands: I figured the white ones Kala had were really nice and she could keep using them with new hardware! For the image, I used these ones from Target ($58)
Lights: Hanging pendants over the night tables $39.99 West Elm x 2
Art: Modify Ink $18 for 8×10
Coral: Target $44
Candle Holder: Hobnob Hurricane Tealight Holder West Elm $5
Basket: Target ($36), but really any baskets would look great with this design!
- Throw Pillow: Target $35
This looks super gorgeous. All of my favorite colors and the style is fantastic. The budget buys are the cherry!
Thanks so much Danielle! Budget buys are the only way I know how ;)
For a more affordable coral, try spray-painting plastic aquarium corals with metallic paint. I used them for centerpieces at our wedding, at a cool $3.50 each!
BTW I love Sea Salt, and almost picked it for our house! I went with Rainwashed instead for the bluer tone. I’m totally borrowing this board for my bedroom inspiration :)
That’s such a clever idea Bonnie! I’m going to have to keep my eye out for awesome aquarium coral now! I would be totally flattered if you used this board for your bedroom :) Send me a photo when you’re done!
It is so nice to have a bedroom that feels like a sanctuary. Natural light makes all the difference. I want to make over my bedroom now!
Ahh it definitely is! I’m midway through my own and can’t wait to have it finished and feel like a sanctuary. If you are wanting to do your bedroom- I’d love for you to sign up for a Reader Room Refresh!
