Making Over the Master Bedroom | Part II

Can you believe it is December? This is my most favorite time of the year, I absolutely love Christmas and now that my son is here it's even more special... it's his first Christmas!!
So back last February, I decided I was going to re-do the master bedroom...again...
One of the hardest rooms for me to do in any home is the bedroom... 

I have never had a bedroom that I just loved... and to be honest I'm still not completely in love with our room, I would love to get all new furniture (who wouldn't right?)....but I'm  so much closer to the L-Word than I was before.
 I'm not totally done, 
but I wanted to give you an update on what I have been up to in this space.
Last time I showed you an update, 
which you can find that post Making Over the Master bedroom | Part I
the bedroom looked like this...
If you have followed my blog or IG for a while than that fireplace may look familiar, it used to be in our living room, but I had decided last year to move it into our bedroom, because I have always wanted a fireplace in a bedroom... I think they are so cozy. I decided to give it a more custom, built in look and added a "chimney" to give some depth, height and increase its presence with size.
I then added some modern sconce lights.
I decided for the look of our bedroom, I wanted to really simplify things but also mix a blend of modern and traditional. So to do this, I decided to keep the color palette simple with black, white and cream. I got rid of the bold red patterned rug and added a simple plain jute rug.

I added a pop of pattern with a bold black and ivory wall paper on the fireplace.
It also gives a vintage feel and helps soften the harshness that black can sometimes have. I usually hate black in our home, but in this room, it just works...
I also painted the windows black and I love the drama it adds to the room.
I had this settee upstairs and I brought it down and got rid of that bench, It makes it nicer because when we moved the bed to the other wall, the light fixture extends past the bed, so this settee adds some depth so you don't konk your head when walking around it... which is important for everyone's sanity and keeping their language clean:)
I kept my curtains, but got new rods, however these are the still the old ones, and they don't extend past the windows, so it's driving me nuts and I really want them changed out...soon.
I racked my brain for a couple years on what to flank the sides of our bed with, I tried pictures, paintings, mirrors, deer heads etc... one day my cousin texted me and suggested some black framed sketches... I looked some up and found some gorgeous ones on Pottery Barn, 
however they were $500...
You must be out your mind!!!
So I remember I had ordered some water color paper a few years ago, so I got it out and quickly sketched out some figures... I got the frames half off at Hobby Lobby and ended up spending $60 on the perfect finishing pieces for my bedroom. Now, I did not take my time, I can actually draw... I went to school for art, but I'm super impatient so I whipped these suckers out very quickly and they aren't perfect, but for $60... they fit the bill! I love how modern they are but still lend an artistic touch.
The thick black frames help to anchor the room and carry on the color palette.
I then layered in lots of texture with pillows and throws. 
I haven't decorated the mantle yet, I haven't quite figured out what I want on it.
It will be simple I do know that.
I still have some more things to do, I want to reupholster that little stool and get a new pillow for that little chair, and I need to rework the other side of the room, it has a bit of cottage feel to it and I need to make it all flow together.  Although it's not quite done, I'm loving the direction it's going in, 
this has been my most fave bedroom design thus far. With a few more changes I think it will look really great. I just wanted to share with you the changes I have made so far...
Thanks for stopping by!
