Sunny Bedroom Update

Our bedroom has always gotten the back burner decorating wise. Does that happen to you? The rest of the house has gotten updates and color love, but all our master bedroom has gotten was stuff shoved in it and laundry folded on the bed. And a super boring neutral palette.

Mohawk Flooring challenged me to give a room a colorful makeover for the summer, and I knew it was time this bedroom got some summer love!


I added some mint, yellow, and turquoise accents to the already neutral room. I painted the table, an old family hand-me-down, and we made the tufted headboard. Come on in and make yourself at home!

I started with the rug, and picked out this “Enlightened Décor” rug in “Vintage Cream”. The rug is a frieze and like Mohawk promised, EXTREMELY SOFT.

The perfect rug to step on first thing in the morning when rolling out of bed. They tell me that all of their Smartstrand rugs are this soft, and I’ll tell you, I’ve never felt a rug this soft. If I wasn’t very pregnant I’d be rolling around on it too. ;)

And while most carpets have stain protection applied to the fibers that can wear off over time, the Smartstrand rugs have permanent stain and soil protection built right into the fibers. This rug will be just as stain resistant in 5 years as it will be now.

In fact, we had a little oops just after adding it to the room. Ben (my three year old) walked in with his muddy shoes and ONTO MY BRAND NEW CARPET, ahhhhh!!!

But sure enough, just as Mohawk promised, a little bit of scrubbing with water, mild soap, and a rag it was GONE. You can’t even tell the mud was there. :)

I have a few more details to add to the room and share with you, so stay tuned for that!

But for now,

    Love the little details. That paint dipped basket makes me so happy. Looks like you picked the perfect color rug too. Well done friend.

      thanks (again, haha), Lauren! I made it on the Vine app, tweeted out the post, clicked on the link in the tweet, clicked “embed”, and it gave me some code to put in a post. It sounds a lot trickier than it actually was. :)

      I know I told you on facebook, but just in case anyone else is wondering I’ll reply here too. ;) The white bedding is a duvet cover from IKEA, OFELIA VASS, and was $30 for a queen. We’ve had duvets before that slipped and slid and were annoying, this one stays put great. It is super comfy and easy to wash too.

      thank you, Karen! Isn’t it funny how teal was out a few years back and now we want to cover ourselves in it? I used to hate yellow too, but am a big fan now. Thanks for commenting, hope you are doing well too! Everything’s good over here, I’m just big and pregnant and moving a little slow ;)

    I love the colors of this makeover. I wish I could use these in my room. I fear my husband may feel he’d experience a slight loss of testosterone lol.

    I love it! It’s beautiful and bright with such perfect balance. I love it when bright colors…are still calm and relaxing. Does that even make sense? Of course it does. ;) Have a wonderful day! ~k.

    All of them! Our new house has all hardwoods/tile, and my husband refuses to let us take our old rugs with us because they’re so gross.
