Master Bedroom Sneak Peek

I’ve been neglecting my blog, again. I still haven’t found the balance of working on spaces for clients and then posting content for readers. Anyone have any tips I’m all ears 🙂 Anyways, I just wanted to share this sneak peek of my master bedroom. It’s been a work in progress since 2010, I just couldn’t get the balance of elements right. Although it’s still not finished, I still have to re-paint walls, add molding to windows, and switch out the dresser situation, the view of the bed is almost 100% complete. And when I say 100% complete, I mean I’m still swapping out those drapes. When your a designer, and it’s your space I have to say you are never done but now that I feel happy with the bed area, I am happy to share it.  Rebecca Zajac Master Bedroom The wood wall is pine shiplap. My husband and I installed back in 2010 when wood walls were trending HARD. I think I saw a wood wall somewhere, wanted one, installed it, and then when the reclaimed walls were EVERYWHERE I wanted to rip it down. I was just sick of seeing them everywhere, but my husband opposed, he loved it and I felt determined to make it work and not feel too trendy. It’s not reclaimed wood, so I felt like I could make it work without it feeling like I jumped onto the reclaimed band wagon. The floors we recently installed and happened to match the wall pretty well. Read a little bit about operation rip out carpet here. I designed the end tables, and made the top, my husband welded the base but by popular request we are in the process of making and listing some of them for sale. Speaking of sale, be sure to check out my items on Chairish. I don’t have an e-commerce site for my vintage and handmade goods yet but I really enjoy selling them on Chairish. They do the advertising, take a little percent of the sale, and take care of shipping. I am more than happy with that kind of online relationship. So speaking of my Chairish shop, I made those pillows on my bed and I have similar ones for sale on Chairish. I will have more indigo pillows made soon, if you are interested in purchasing anything you don’t see just email me. The stools from the end of the bed are from Wayfair. I didn’t like how shinny and new they were (it’s actually two benches even though you can only see one) so I used a deglosser on the wood to take some shine off and I’m distressing the leather by leaving my wet towel on them daily. The bedding is a white linen duvet, you can see my recommendations for white bedding here. The rug is Potterybarn and it’s much bluer like my picture, not dusty blue like the Potterybarn picture. Lamps are West Elm but I added a larger whiter shade. And the draper are vintage West Elm, but I am going to replace them with simple white panels. So if you interested in those existing panels they will be for sale, I own 8 panels and they are about 104″ tall. I will share the DIY for the wood wall in an upcoming post and I will share the remaining images of the room when It’s complete.

    1. Hi Melissa. I got that throw on the bed at Target, it’s actually two throws I hand stitched together. Unfortunately they no longer sell those throws but they have similar ones. You need two to go across a king bed and if they are knitted on the sides you can easily do a whip stitch and you really can’t see the seam.

  1. Hi Rebecca,
    I absolutely love your master bedroom design. The idea of sewing two throws together in order to get them to cover a King sized bed is ingenious. Thank you for that idea!! I was wondering how that Pottery Barn rug has held up for you. I don’t know much about flatweaves made from recycled plastic (PET). Is it soft or scratchy, is it hard to keep it laying smooth and flat, is it easy to spot clean, and what size do you have under your King? I would LOVE a review of it, now that you have had it for a while. I am trying to figure out the pros and cons of different materials used in rugs. I absolutely love this one, so hopefully I’ll hear from you. Thanks!!

    1. The Pottery Barn flat weave has held up really well. I’ve used PET rugs in both indoor and outdoor settings and they do really well. I would compare the softness to a wool flatweave. It’s not particularly super soft like a plush rug but I prefer flatweaves because they are easier to vacuum, keep clean, and don’t trap pet hair. I also use a thick non skid rug pad that adds softness and prevents the rug from shifting or bunching up. I have a 8’x10′ rug under my Cal King. Either a 8’x10′ or 9’x12′ will fit under a king it just depends on the size of your room. I have a little rug size guide here to help with sizes as well. Hope that helps!!
