I’m making a little progress on the Life: Simplified Project. This past weekend my husband and I decided to do a master bedroom update. We went through all of our clothes and got rid of the junky stuff and gave away stuff that we no longer wear, so that freed up a bunch of space in our closet and wardrobe.
Now, you will note I am not an interior designer. This room is a reflection of the things we like. We are parents of young kids and our toddler’s bed is still in our room. We have a mish-mash of furniture that we combined when we got married. It works for us! Let me tell you what we did to update, personalize, and simplify our room.
The master bedroom can be a catch-all. Clean it up! Put all the papers and things that collect there that don’t belong and put them away! Those work papers do not belong in your bedroom! If you have a desk in your bedroom and no office space, keep your desk clear when you aren’t working.
My husband and I go through all of our clothing and declutter regularly. There is no point in keeping worn-out, holy things or clothes that do not fit. We get rid of a lot of stuff and donate everything that is still useable.
We bought a new comforter set in colors that we like, and we got new sheets! We haven’t bought new sheets since we got married, so they were much needed. We also got some sheer curtains because our windows were naked.
I convinced my husband to hang some of our wedding pictures in our room. I love them!
I have a vanity area where I sit to put on make-up. I have always wanted this, so I was glad to finally have the space for it!
Add Some Pretties
Along with personal photographs you can add some of your favorite artwork. I have a giant art print hanging in our bedroom as well as a few sentimental knick-knacks gathered around.
Put a vase of flowers in your room, or some lovely scented candles. Make it pretty. Make it fancy. Make it YOU!
I made a printable of I Corinthians 13: 4-8 and it’s available in my shop. These verses were said at our wedding, so they are sentimental. I made the printable in the colors of our bedroom. I printed mine as an 8×10.
