DIY Bedroom Makeover

It all started with the color Blue Jean Jacket.  This inspired me to create the coziest + inviting space home to Nina Marie Blogs.  There is a bit of a twist…when I am not in my office doing NMB stuff this space is used as a guest + my son Matthew’s room when he is visiting.  Now that he is fifteen years old I thought this would be the perfect time for a complete room revamp.  After all, I was over the shabby chic decor and all the pink tones + Matthew needed his own space.

It was time for fresh + modern!

The whole idea was to make this room a multifunctional room with a neutral color palette –  throwing in some deep tones like blue.  I love blue and thought this was perfect!  The color we chose for the walls is Behr Jean Jacket Blue in a satin finish.

I also thought using wood finishes for the furniture pieces would bring warmth into the room.  Restoration Hardware + West Elm is another place where I grabbed lots of inspiration and they carry a lot of amazing wood pieces.  I’m so happy I was finally able to incorporate this type of design.  In my opinion, this project did end up giving an RH/West Elm inspired look.  What do you think?


If you’ve been following me for some time now, you know I am a lover of all white.  I use to decorate our house in white from top to bottom anywhere I can.  That did last a long second but now I love color and want a different feel for each space.  Boy, how we evolve.  Although I did use white + beiges I limited myself to only using them to include texture.  Texture is a great tool to use when you want to add character and dimension to any room.  You can basically decorate everything in one color, but in the end, it may not look right or may feel like it’s missing something.  If you add texture while using the same color it can create a totally different look and can be amazing.  I have used texture + pattern for so long that I am no longer scared to play around and work with the pieces I find or already have.  


Another tip that I learned in the many years that I have been revamping rooms, use the color wheel.  The color wheel can be handy when you are curious as to what colors compliment each other.  In my room, you’ll notice I use hints of yellow, gray, and beige.  All of these colors go very nicely together and therefore are appealing to the eye.  I used pattern in the cushions, sheer curtains, pillowcases, throws, chair, rug, and headboard.

Please let me know your thoughts or what you would have done differently.  Always interested in hearing your thoughts!



To make the bed look inviting, I added a foam mattress topper like this one here.  I also added a down comforter and then on top of that I added another comforter in gray.  The pillows are brand new so they look so fluffy.  I think pillows look extra amazing in pillowcases when they are fluffy + new.
