We love a good accent wall just as much as the next person, but there is no denying the transformative power of a clean coat of fresh, white paint. When DIY blogger Molly Madfis and her husband bought their house, the first item on their to-do list was eradicating the paint colors left by the previous owners. “Each room was painted a different horrible color with a different horrible ceiling fan hanging way too low,” Molly noted of the space. “We started with a coat of white paint, and we couldn’t believe how much space opened up.” Afterwards, it was just a matter of choosing a few key pieces to bring the home to life. For the master bedroom, this meant a mixture of Mid-Century style furnishings and a few DIY elements to warm the space up. As you’ll see below, the end result is nothing short of perfect.

“I’ve never had a master bedroom before, and it was one of the reasons we chose our house, so I made it the first room I worked on. I really wanted to create a cozy and serene space for us. We kept it pretty minimal (for us) and let the woods and beiges warm up the vibe around the plants and the light.”

“Our closet is thankfully big enough to hold all our stuff, so I decided to use a media cabinet instead of a traditional dresser in the bedroom. This piece gave us a place to hide our TV stuff and I use the drawers to store accessories.”

“We learned to take our time with some of the design decisions (every room has like a hundred lessons for the next). We had this huge long wall when you enter the bedroom, it took a couple months to decide how to fill it. We debated a long bench, a gallery wall, and various arrangements of decor, but in the end went with a large standing mirror. The mirror did what mirrors do and opened the room up and kept the big wall still feeling big. We got the space and we got the decorative accent!”

“I truly love every piece in our room, which was hard to assemble and accomplish but, if you can take the time, it’ll make your room feel way more intimate and “finished” when you have a personal connection to each piece, plant, and picture in the space.”
