It’s been a little while since we’ve checked in on my Decorist makeover. No, no I didn’t forget. Pinky swear. I’ve actually been working on it like a mad woman. The final board arrived in my inbox the day before I left for Germany. Since I was out of the country for 2 weeks, I couldn’t order anything until after I returned. Bob, my neighbor, would have had a lot of boxes to store in his garage for me. I apologize for the delayed update. In case you don’t remember, I was presented with 2 concepts designed by Ashley Redmond, my interior designer from Decorist, and I was taking a poll from you to see which y’all liked over all.
Concept 1 kept my existing bed and added two gorgeous brass nightstands. It was light and airy and the hints of brass would bounce the light around the room. I was also obsessing over that beautiful woven chair. Here’s a peek at the board to refresh your memory.
Concept 2 for my Decorist makeover had similar neutral tones yet a totally different style. Ashley went with a more natural, earthy feel but still pulled in clean lines and the mid-century modern look I adored. The leathers, jutes and natural woods gave it the touch of boho that recently has been making my heart swoon…thanks to Justina Blakeney’s new book.
So which concept did I chose? Click thru to find out! But before that, let’s have one last look at the horrendousness of what this room use to look like, shall we? Oh and don’t forget, if you’re thinking about purchasing a Decorist package for yourself, enter the code “HIPSTER” to receive $20 off your Classic Makeover…and nope, I’m not getting anything if you use that code. We just really like each other.

A couple months ago you some how came across my blog and read an I Make Emily Henderson Cry post. I about fell out of my chair when you wrote on my Facebook page. I do hope you enjoyed reading it as much as I enjoyed writing it. Since watching Secrets From A Stylist (please bring it back, I need you in my living room…but not in a creepy kinda way), I’ve learned so much about my style and how to create vignettes. I still haven’t mastered the art of mixing and matching pillows, but I swear I’m practicing.
Reading your blog and watching your videos…girl, you are a wealth of knowledge that people like me value, adore, and cherish. It’s like you’ve created your very own little army of eclectic style mixing wanna be designers. Because of you, I had the confidence to start this master bedroom makeover and know it would wind up magazine worthy. And for that, I thank you. So if you’re reading this, I hope you see how you’ve inspired me. From velvet navy headboards to brass sconces to mix and matched furniture. Mid-Century Modern with a little bit of granny as you call it. Wipe those sweet salty tears of sadness away and come out from hiding in the closet because girl, I’m about to blow your mind…I hope, fingers crossed.
There’s been some chatter…mostly started by myself…of a super secret amazingly stupendous master bedroom makeover project. Yep, it was on track for a very cool feature in a very cool magazine, but, weird shit happens sometimes and whomp, whomp, whomp, I think that game is over. It’s okay though, I’m over it…not really. Insert laughing so hard I’m crying emojis here. I still have what will soon be one dreamy little spot to lay my pretty head. That is, pending a gorgeous rug’s arrival from India, a painter who has been perpetually busy and a DIY. Note to self, stop slamming the painter get on that DIY already. Oh, and some wall art above my bed.
Because the space is not finalized (the main feature is the rug), this post is not a complete reveal (sad face), but I promise to share more then just a one picture sneak peek. I’ll also be sharing with you how everything came together, and who helped me make my master bedroom makeover happen.

Mid-Century Modern. It’s everywhere you look these days. Mad Men, The Daily Show, even the April issue of Elle Décor predominantly features Mid-Century Modern furniture. Knoll, Thonet, Jens Risom, Bertoia, Saarinen, and I’m sure most of you know Eames just to name a few. Classic designers inspired by clean lines. All from the 1950s, and in vogue now. But how do you get your hands on these gems? Well, I used to spend hours upon hours scouring Craigslist, eBay, flea markets and estate sales. More often then not, it was a bust. Now days, the answer for me is Chairish.com. They make it fun and easy to buy vintage furniture, and gloriously curated.
As you already now, I’m a huge Chairish Instagram Sale fan, recently they asked me to participate in their Mix & Match Style Challenge. I
danced with glee jumped at the opportunity. A chance to shop Chairish and create an inspirational Mid-Century Modern space that I would be dreaming about for years to come? Ummm, challenge accepted!
