Unplanned Master Bedroom Update

Things have kind of stalled on the master bedroom decor front. It has all of the old decor from our last home and that's how it's stayed since summertime.  I really put zero thought into this space since such a large chunk of our budget has gone to new flooring throughout the whole first floor, kitchen countertops, and bathroom updates, too!

The space is calming and soothing and not at all like the rest of our house--haha.  Lately, as in these never ending snow days, I have been getting the itch to change it all up. And, really, it's pretty much a blank slate.  

As you can see, I have those floral fabric panels framed and blue pillows & patterned quilt on the bed but minus those it's really blank. 

I've been pinning some ideas and have no idea which direction I will take it.  But I think the whole calming vibe is over.  I mean, I do want us to be able to relax, but I want to throw in a more eclectic mix as well.  

My first little change-up came on a whim.  I've been basically holed up at home for the last 5 days due to our massive snow storm we had this weekend and my wheels have been turning.  

To be honest, I have never loved that bench you see in the window area.  I bought it to fit a space in our last bedroom and just plopped it in here when we moved in.  Ideally, I think I'd like a built in window seat, but I'm not 100% sold on that idea either.  

Anyway, back to the change-up.  I decided to move the glider, that got a ton of miles put on it when Theron was a wee babe, into the space.  

Since living in this house, it has just been sitting in our third bedroom with other hodgepodge things keeping it company.  

But now, it looks like it was made perfectly for the bay window area in our master bedroom.  

I actually have sat in it, rocked in it, and read a little bit of my book [I'm really trying to finish--I am so NOT the reader] in it.  

Now to get going on some updated decor in this space!

Have a great day, guys! Looks like I'll be enjoying [or trying not to go crazy during] snow day #5. Wowza.

Joi - Where is the rocker/glider from? We're going to have a sitting area in our new house and I've been shopping already for something to fit in it.

My thought for that window area was: two matching chairs for you and hubby. The question with stuff like that is always "will it be functional and actually used though." Just because something looks symmetrical and perfect in a magazine doesn't mean it'll fit in with my day to day real-life living. Know what I mean? I love the rocker there and cant wait to see what direction you take with the room. And please don't get rid of those lamps! I heart them all the way:)

Gosh, you have such a touch. I love every space you create and look through everything multiple times for inspiration and ideas. you just understand how to put things together.

I love the glider there. Scratch that. I just plan love the glider, period.

I see the bench by the window and I have to agree that it looks out of place. Built-in window seats are a quirky and lively addition to your home. It’s like a window and a couch made love and gave birth to built-in window seats. Hahaha! Do you have enough space in your living room? Maybe you can go for something like this:
