Holiday House Bedroom Tours (Before & After)

Excited to finally share the bedrooms at the holiday house! This house has three bedrooms (other than the playroom which has a trundle bed), which includes a master bedroom downstairs and two very similar bedrooms on the second floor. First, let’s talk about this master bedroom.

Here you can see a little before and after of this space. This bedroom is connected to a small second room, through this arch doorway. So we decided to add a king-size bed in the main area and then create a mini living room in the second part. It’s a great space to hang out before bed or have a cup of coffee and read in the morning. That is one thing we loved about this home when we bought it—there are so many living/common spaces.

As you can see, quite a bit changed about this master bedroom aesthetically, but not much structurally. We refinished the floors, same as throughout the house, painted the walls and ceiling, and swapped out the closet doors before we moved on to furnishing.

Oh! And I almost forgot my favorite detail: the wallpaper (similar here).

Love the green leather love seat (it’s been retired but you can see all Article’s love seats here)—it’s the absolute perfect size for this space! I also just love how cozy and calm these rooms feel while still having a few details that make it special.

I absolutely love the trip-colored macrame that was given to us from Modern Macrame. They have a monthly Knot-Along series where you can purchase the supplies and get patterns for beautiful wall hangings like this one for free. It’s really cool and if you have ever thought about getting into macrame you should for sure check them out!

Next to the macrame is a Missouri illustrated map that I got from Etsy. So cute and you’ll see in the next bedrooms I have a bit of a Missouri art theme going throughout the house. 🙂

And above the green sofa is a really beautiful abstract painting by our mom, Elizabeth Chapman. I know we are biased but I truly love our mom’s paintings and the colors of this one just felt perfect for this house.

In the stairway that leads to the second floor, that has the other two bedrooms, we added this really pretty black and white wallpaper. We also installed a few floating shelves at the top of the stairs for kiddo books, for Elsie’s girls when they are visiting. A few favorites include Yum Yummy Yuck, Triangle, and Sprout Helps Out (by our neighbor, Rosie). I am also very partial to Berenstain Bears books as I grew up reading those myself. 🙂

These two bedrooms are almost mirrors of each other. Both contain a queen-size bed (LOVE these bed frames—so classic) and a few items to make them feel like home, including more Missouri art prints (again, from Etsy and I’ll link both below). These rooms are very simple but hopefully still feel cozy to anyone and everyone that stays here in the years to come. Thanks for letting me share! We plan to list the house to rent out in early 2020 and we’ll for sure update you then! xo. Emma

  • Love your house! Are the Hanging plants in the upstairs bedrooms real? Didn’t see a sourcing for those. Love the fans in the great room.

  • Love these rooms! Did you replace the ceiling fan or is it the original, painted? I’m curious if that’s possible as we have two ceiling fans (in our living room and kitchen) that are perfectly functional, but I want to brighten up the spaces! Thanks!

    • Jodie,
      I did go ahead and paint one of the old ceiling fans in our house. Nothing fancy -just removing the blades sanding a bit and white ceiling paint on the blades. That was back in 2009 and now 10 years later the paint is still like new.

      Reuse ftw.

  • LOVE the look -very clean and cozy! Only thing I am curious about the chalkboard hanging over the bed- won’t dust fall onto the pillows?

  • Always love your super inspiring home tours! Thanks for sharing! 🙂
