Welcome to our bedroom.I don't really have a true "before" picture of my bedroom, because it was the very first room I painted. Before I ever moved anything in to the house I painted the master bedroom white. I knew there was SO much about the house that I wasn't going to be able to change right away, so I at least wanted my room to get a fresh coat of paint. That way I wouldn't feel too much like I was just moving into someone else's house. The bedroom next to mine (where my neice lived for the first year and half I owned my home) was the same color and had the same carpet. So I'm including a photo of that room here to give you an idea of how it changed over time.Probably the biggest update that completely changed the feel of the room was getting rid of that old, dark tan carpet. I am not against carpet, by any means. But this carpet was old and stained from the previous home owner. I had the popcorn ceilings scraped (just like in the living room and kitchen) and this made the room feel so much bigger! We have a large, vintage American flag (proudly) displayed over our bed. My dad helped be build the wood bed frame from. I love it, because it's kind of a blank canvas to display whatever we want on it. We change it up pretty frequently. Beside the bed we've framed and hung our marriage license, a cross-stitch wedding gift (it's the Kanye quote we included on our wedding invites) and a few other little pieces of art. My goal for the bedroom was a little different from the living room and kitchen. I wanted the room to feel a little more open and bright, but still be cozy. The mostly white walls and wood floors allows for the color the palette of the rest of the decor to lean more towards brown and warm tones. My favorite detail in the room is our one wall paper wall. I love the pop of pattern and gold! Thanks for letting me show you around our bedroom! xo. Emma

Hi! I am blown away by your bedroom. I have been returning to these pictures again and again (since we just moved into a new rental). I was wondering if you had any ideas as to what I might search for to find similar vintage hanging lanterns. I would love to incorporate something similar and I cannot get them out of my head. Thanks!
Lovely! I love how airy this room is and the style…Girl…so pretty! 🙂
Hi Emma, What a beautiful room! Well done! Your floors are stunning, would you mind sharing the details on those or point me to a post where you have discussed them before please?
thank you much!
Can’t get enough of this room! It’s simply gorgeous!
I especially enjoyed your necklaces corner, feels so cozy. Also the way you displayed the necklaces is super!
I want to see your closet!
I am in love with your duvet cover! Is it still for sale anywhere on the UO website? Matches perfectly with the throw pillows and the American flag, somehow. Your decorating style is so unique.
very cool bedroom!
I love the wall with the golden spirals! How did you make the picture on the wooden plank that is standing by the mirror? Its so rustic, would love to make one like that.
Beautiful! That exact paint colour is what I’ve been looking for – I’ve tried 3 different ones and have not been happy with it but maybe it’ll be 4th time lucky?

i love the framed marriage certificate and wedding mementos all around the room! so special and romantic!
There seems to be a wall you haven’t shown up close, and it looks like you have a bunch of white feathers either individually washi taped or thumbtacked to the wall… Is that right? Looks intriguing and cool. Also love the sophisticated and warm glimmer of the wallpaper wall.
Is there a post about the DIY knob jewelry display?? thanks SO much for sharing!! I love ABM!
Cool tiger. He looks…proud.
Emma, I love your bedroom – it is very unique and very “you”. Love the headboard and love the jewelry “hanging racks” –
My question is about the beautiful notebook/binder on the side table – I have been looking for a black and white binder like that for months – is it a russell + hazel binder?
The wall of feathers!!! Gah! Love it so much!!
How did you and your dad make the bed frame? So gorgeous!
soooo in love with the decor in your house! truly unique style!
