The Look for Less: Master Bedroom

Bedroom, Coastal Interiors, Edesign, Home Blog Posts, Splurge vs. SaveAnneke McConnell

Hey guys! Many of us know what it’s like to fall completely in love with something that’s outside of our budget. Today’s mood board edesigns of a master bedroom show how you can get the look for less OR at least mix and match whichever items you like! There is over $5000 difference between these two master bedroom designs!

Also a quick reminder that today is the last day of Serena & Lily’s 20% off sale! I chose a handful of items from Serena & Lily for our Master Bedroom Makeover this past Spring if you want to see some of their pieces styled in our home. Their pillows, lighting, and rugs are some of my favorites to design with!

I have to admit there were some pieces in the Splurge design that gave me quite the challenge to find something similar. I hope you find this helpful! I particularly love that light tan and cream plaid blanket for fall! If you love being surrounded by neutrals, this is a great affordable option!

Our Master Bedroom Makeover with Serena & Lily

*Dislclaimer: This post is sponsored by Serena & Lily. All opinions and design choices are my own. A big THANK YOU to Serena & Lily for partnering with me and sponsoring this post. Affiliate links are included below.


You guys!! It's finally about finished! Our Master Bedroom at the Beach House has been work in progress for quite awhile. I mean.....please tell me I'm not the only one who tends to focus on all the OTHER spaces in the house before the master bedroom. 

Of all the rooms that people tackle in their homes to update, I've discovered that the Master Bedroom is often at the end of the list. Who doesn't like to focus on the kitchen and living spaces, making their kid's bedrooms special or the guest room comfortable?

This has been the case for us, and I'm honored to partner with one of my favorite brands, Serena & Lily to transform our bedroom into a relaxing retreat.  Talk about a pinch me moment!

If you have been putting your bedroom off for quite some time, rest assured it doesn't take much to pull together a beautiful and sophisticated space. You absolutely deserve it to end your day in a room that brings you joy, calm, and a good night's rest....a place just for you.

Here it is!

To give you an idea of the before, here are a couple of photos from when we had our house listed on the vacation rental market.  It gives you a real view at what's going on (i.e. those windows have always been such a weird mystery to me....like why?)

It's also worth mentioning that you can't see the bright orange closet doors. Haha! I've painted the majority of the doors and trim throughout the house to Benjamin Moore's Simply White and LOVE it. Other colors in this makeover are at the end of the post.

 

BEFORE:

AFTER:

 

Needless to say, it's been nice to make our bedroom (and home for that matter) more "us"! ;-) 

It may not seem like a big deal, but at the end of the day when I walk into our room, it's just so peaceful and calming. I really wanted the bedroom to feel like a casual chic oasis of sorts while still sticking to our Pacific Northwest roots.

The white linen duvet cover and shams make me feel like we're on vacation every day, with that classic beach house vibe. I almost chose a different color (there are five options!), but I know that as I change small items seasonally in the bedroom, the white will be a key staple bedding item that will last for years to come.

The Sutter linen quilt in pink sand adds a feminine touch without being over the top. It's a great light weight option while still adding warmth (and layers in the colder months).

The Whitley embroidered pillows in Flax are something I've had my eye on for awhile. They are so stunning in person and the quality is top notch with the embroidery on both sides of the pillow cover.  Quick tip: if you're looking to create a fuller look to your pillows, be sure to use one size larger on your pillow insert than the cover. The Eva Tassel Pillow Cover in white finishes off the bedding ensemble in the front.  One thing I love about Serena & Lily's pillows is how they all coordinate effortlessly together.

When you turn to the foot of the bed, you get a better idea for the size of the bedroom, which we love and make it work for us.  The Tulum Rug was such a key piece in grounding the entire bedroom and also lightening up the room since the floors (which came with the house when we bought it) are much darker.  The neutral rug made such a HUGE impact in the entire bedroom coming together! The pattern is subtle and adds just enough interest while being anything but boring. 

The Beaufort Tray is something that can move around our beach house as needed, but for now sits nestled on our bedroom dresser (a piece I repainted) to corral small items such as my go-to earrings, plus greens or a vase of flowers and coastal shells. This is an extremely sturdy tray and the mix of raffia and seagrass makes for a beautiful set up no matter where you place it!

Here you can see a better view of the Tulum Rug and another favorite of mine, the Topanga Pillow Cover in blue. I like to say it's "Copper Approved", since this is one of our maltipoo's favorite hang out spots. The medium Tassel Basket below is also a great size for storing a handful of throw blankets (or books, toys, etc.). Blue is one of my favorite colors and I love the touch of color it brings to the room.

The round Sandbar Tray is one of my personal favorites of all Serena & Lily pieces and is an instant classic for any beach inspired home.  The seagrass is beautiful and chic, as well as extremely versatile and functional.

Thanks so much for checking out our beach house master bedroom makeover and I hope it inspires you in your own home endeavors!

Beach House Vacation Rental in the Pacific Northwest

BedroomAnneke McConnell

Hey there friends! Before diving into today's post, I wanted remind you it's the LAST DAY of the One Kings Lane Anniversary Sale. Now some sites have sales every weekend, or maybe rotate what they have on sale, but One King's Lane is one of those sites that RARELY goes on sale.

They have such beautiful quality furniture and home decor. This outdoor lantern is a favorite!

ONE KINGS LANE SALE FAVES

Now onto today's fun post! It has now become tradition that my sister and I, along with any other women who need a mini retreat, plan a girl's weekend getaway at least two times per year.

For just 3 days and 2 nights, somewhere within a couple hours of home, there are more than enough options to choose from here in the Seattle area.

For our most recent getaway, we found a quaint little beach house north of Seattle, WA in the Coupeville area.  It was a little ironic since Coupeville had just been featured in a recent article of Coastal Living magazine I had read - my monthly happy mail!

If you have yet to plan a trip like this, I can't recommend it enough! Find someone to take the kids for the weekend, and make it happen to get away for a bit. We typically search sites like VRBO, Homeway, and Airbnb, and found this vacation rental home on VRBO. When we split the cost, it's such an affordable mini vacation!

I do have to be upfront though......I went into this trip planning to simply relax and reflect on personal and business goals, map things out, etc. and stay off of my phone and social media completely.  NO WORK. Eek!

I wasn't planning to take photos with my Canon DSLR, but once we got there I was kicking myself for not bringing it. The house and property are so incredibly beautiful and I could hardly resist taking photos and videos with my iPhone, which obviously won't do it justice.

BUT, I'd rather share what photos I do have though, for those of you looking for a place to vacation at in the Pacific Northwest! 

Here it is! A beautiful, no-bank waterfront beach house with unobstructed 180 degree views!

This bedding is so beautiful in person! The material feels wonderful and not scratchy at all!

Here is the second bedroom off of the living, dining, and kitchen space. It has the cutest loft area set up for older kids!

***I apologize this is so blurry! I wanted you to get the idea of it though if you're looking for a place to stay in the Seattle region with kids!

I thought all of the details like the simple styling in this white cabinet, not to mention the cremone bolt, the guest book, and beautiful globe chandelier were all so beautiful and made the entire home feel so special and inviting.

I loved all of the turquoise accents throughout the little cottage. I wish I knew where these mugs were from, because they are so cute! Each one has a different coastal animal and word. :-)

The house is literally the last one on the street and on "the point". We definitely took some walks along the beach during our stay here.

Here is a quick video of our first time walking into the house and seeing the home. :-)

You can see more photos of the house along with booking info. HERE.

 

I have a feeling we'll be rebooking this place over the years, hopefully for some quick trips away with family and friends too!

Beach House Master Bedroom Progress

Bedroom, Coastal InteriorsAnneke McConnell

Hey friends! The Beach House Master Bedroom Project is moving along quickly and I'm excited to share the final AFTER soon! The plan has changed a bit since I first shared the edesign plan we were going for - you can see the original plan HERE.

Our bedding has arrived from Serena & Lily (on major sale right now!), and I'm so excited about their linen duvet cover and shams - nothing says beach house like linen, right? 

Also, after reading more reviews of the original desk we chose, many people said the color was very different from the photo, so I switched it up and went with this pretty white writing desk (also acting as a nightstand). Needless to say, I.LOVE.IT!!!! It fits our space perfectly and is exactly what we need with two small side drawers and a center laptop tray drawer.

More to come soon, but here are some "not so perfect" progress shots!

 

 

I couldn't have done all of this installing of window shades and curtains without my husband Michael!  He has been a HUGE help! Thanks babe!

 

 

We also got one of my favorite affordable traverse rods installed on all of the four windows.  It takes a bit of extra time, but pinching the hooks closed before mounting the rod on the wall is well worth the effort in the long run - I'm saying that from experience of them sliding out easily!

 

SHOP THE LOOK

 

We're still waiting on a handful of items to arrive like our new bed, but I'll keep you posted as it comes together! Thanks for stopping by today!
