Master Bedroom Refresh (Florida Home)


My master bedroom was in need of a refresh after six years in my new Florida home.  I didn’t dislike the room, but just wanted to bring the metal elements together after the addition of a pretty large barn door and its black hardware.  

By adding more modern black knobs to my perfectly fine dressers, the look was totally changed and updated. The white ceiling fan was also changed for a black, three blade, up to date style and the curtain hardware was easily changed from silver to black with a can of spray paint.

The biggest expense was a new black, taller and sleek iron headboard to replace the dated silver one with its more traditional elements.

The new quilt kept the same coastal blue and green colors and the space overall kept its cool, calming feel, but with a modern twist.  When you are happy with a room, but it has become dated in certain areas, small changes, without spending a lot of money, can make the decor fresh and new again. 

Happy Tuesday!


  1. The changes look great. We basically just integrated what we had at the house, then the apartment, into the condo here. But since we just bought the house two years ago, it wasn't too old to just move and use again. No more moves for us. I stopped at Hobby Lobby this morning and found a couple of pictures for the laundry room. One was originally $45 and marked down to $7.99! The other was 50% off and only $6.99. I thought that it was a pretty good deal. And now I'm done unless we decide to get curtain for the bedroom.

    1. Thought about new dressers, but changing the knobs made a big difference. Hated the white fan - always dirty so that was a great change!

  2. Love the changes!!! Enjoy your day dear friend! HUGS

  3. I love the changes you made. Your room looks great!

    Very pretty! I never would have thought about changing the hardware. Your bedspread is very pretty. Can I ask where you got it? Need to refresh my condo bedroom in Florida.

  5. Very nice! Sometimes the littlest things make the biggest difference. Enjoy your weekend!
