Today I’m sharing another room in the Montgomery House. If you’re new here, this was a big project for me and a dream come true. My dear friend and client asked me to design her custom built home about two years ago. It was my first professional project and helped to launch the business I have now. I finished it up in April and my husband took the photos I’ve been slowly sharing. Click here for more of the posts about this house.

Okay onto the reason for today’s post- this dreamy master bedroom!
I love long white curtains with a black rod. I read somewhere that a black rod is like eyeliner for your windows. I completely agree. This is the only room we put curtains up in the Montgomery House. Because it is a craftsman style home, every window has these beautiful craftsman moldings. But the bedroom needed the curtains just for a more romantic feeling in my opinion. Since it is so neutral (and I love a neutral bedroom), the more fabrics and textures you can have the better. Curtains add to that. We still get a glimpse of the beautiful woodwork in between.
I’ve put this framed print in several master bedrooms lately. It is by the talented Lindsay Letters but it is part of the line she has available at Hobby Lobby.

We still have pictures to hang and some accessories to add in, but this room in The Montgomery House is well on its way! Since I have two boys of my own, I love doing little boy rooms. Take a mix of plaids, stripes, textures, some different metals & wood, plus add in some antlers for this hunting family, and you’ve got a man-child room with lots of space to play. The colors aren’t match-matchy so toys and stuffed animals fit right in. We’ve got some storage on the other side of the room that you can’t see here but will be perfect for this little guy’s books and toys and it will all grow with him. Can’t wait to show you more once its finished!

Hello there! Sorry, today I’m posting the darkest picture ever (but before pictures are supposed to be bad, right?).
This is my friend’s guest room. Her style is so bright and fun and colorful, but of course we all have those rooms that just sort of get neglected. When its the guest room that you rarely use it doesn’t really matter! Her in-laws were coming to stay in just a couple of weeks though so we needed to do something quick to perk up this room and make it a more welcoming space.
Here’s the plan we came up with:
She had the walls painted gray and we used my favorite Ikea Ritva curtains on the windows. Floor to ceiling- makes a big big difference! Since we were short on time and wanted to make the most of the budget (don’t we always want to make the most of our budget??) we decided to keep all existing furniture and just update the bedding. We also added some bright & meaningful art, including several pieces done by her kids! We found new lamps, and added in a graphic rug. The result, I think, is a whole lot of fun! We’re calling it The Love Shack, you’ll see why. 🙂
I’m just LOVEing these prints we found online… anyone who stays in this room will hopefully feel very loved & inspired…
Their sweet little dog was just hanging out here the whole time Paul was shooting. Seems like she thinks its a cozy little room!
It doesn’t take a huge budget or even a huge overhaul to make a big difference. What’s that one room in your house that needs a little LOVE? 🙂
