Redecorating Our Master Bedroom #HangoutRoom

When we first moved into this home, we didn't know which part of the bedroom would be best to put our bed so we put away from the windows. That was a big mistake because, the light from outside is too bright that it was keeping me awake even with curtains closed. So to address the issue, hubby and I repositioned our bed and put it on the other side of the wall.
Our bedroom is the biggest room in this house so we had plenty of space.  I asked my husband to  build me a walk-in closet on that side where I  put the  couch but it doesn't look like he is likes the idea.  Two of the bedrooms have walk-in closets but our  bedroom which is a bummer because my clothes won't fit in  the  small Mr. and Mr's closet near the bathroom.  I know, I need to  trim down my clothes in order for everything to fit so that is what I will do.
Our kids love to  hang out with us before bedtime so they would jump in our bed.  The issue is that, our bed get so crowded that we  hardly have space to  move around so I ordered an area rug to put on the floor so we could all gather around it if we need to.
My husband inherited his Dad's old military chest  so I wanted to incorporate it in our bedroom rather than buying a table.  Inside the chest is  my husband's childhood stuff and military memorabilia.   Also kept in there  the flag that  they gave us during my father-in-law's funeral as part of the 21-gun salute honor they did for him.  
We read  the Bible on Mondays and also read books on Tuesdays so we  now have an official place to do it.

My daughter brought her bean bag in our "hang out room", that's what they call it now.
 Our fur babies are bummed out because we restricted them from  coming in this space.  It might sound mean but they shed so much so what we do is hang out with them in our family room before going upstairs and in order for them not to feel left out, we  put them in their bed before we  go to ours. 

This Martha Stewart collection Camille 10-Pc. Queen Comforter Set was on a close out sale  at Macy's and I could not pass the deal.  It also matched perfectly with our aqua color theme so even though I just bought a new bedding last November< I jumped on getting this one too.
My husband said "When it rains, it pours".  He was  asking me to buy a new  bedding  last year but due to budget constraints, I held off but now that we could afford it, I went for it.  So from Hallmart collectible to Martha Stewart, our bedroom got a new look.
I still wish my husband would make a walk-in closet someday lol.  He said he has to check if we have to follow a certain code  for it but I think it is  alright.  He is right though, we need to make sure before adding anything so that when it's time to sell this house, there won't be no issue.  I still think a walk-in closet is a big plus for women when buying a house.  What do you think?

My kids are not allowed in my bedroom LOL. It's cool that they have a hangout spot and I do love your new bedding set.

The new bedding looks great with the wood bed. I've never had a walk-in closet but would like one if I had the room (which I don't).

Your room looks fabulous and inviting. My daughter will sometimes talk to us for a bit in our bedroom, but then she has to leave. My husband and I very much make it clear that our room is for adults.

I've had my bed in two different locations in my master bedroom. I finally found the just-right spot for it when I redecorated a few months ago.

Kelly Reci said...

It's always so much fun to redecorate. I love seeing other people's makeover reveals... it's always so inspiring and makes me want to re-do a room myself!

Jeannette said...

I always like to redecorate. It breaths new life into a room and sometimes you just need that. I think I'm in the mood to try again and see what I can come up with this time. Great idea.

Love your choice of bedding. Wish I had room for a couch and seating area in our bedroom. Turned out great looking.

No walk in closet?? JU SO FONII!! Babushka wouldn't be able to survive without hers, and it's still too small! ; ) Your bedroom is lovely and that's wonderful how you've structured your family time there. BB2U

Nikki said...

Wow, your room is huge! I love how much space you have to sprawl out. Your redecorating came out fabulous.

rosemary palmer said...

It's good you use the area instead of just wasting it - but I would probably vote for a huge closet too.

Tomi Clark said...

We have some old military chests that we use as additional seating and storage tables in each of the kids' bedrooms. Those chests are really great for incorporating into any decor. If your husband ever builds that walk in closet you want, you'll have to share pics with us okay?

The new bedding is nice!! I do not allow my kids in my room. It is the one space in the house I don't want to share with them.

Sarah-Louise Bailey said...

I love what you have done with your bedroom and how special is that chest and it's content!

Sarah Honey said...

Looks fantastic! Love the idea of adding a couch.

Maureen Hitipeuw said...

Your room looks so comfy and peaceful. Love how you use a lot of blue color.

Sapphire Kharyzma said...

I love how the room turned out, especially having the bible at the center of the room *wink* But seriously...it looks so spacious and that's a great feeling!

Annemarie LeBlanc said...

Wow, your bedroom is huge! I love that you spend some time with your kids together in the room before bedtime, and to spend time reading the Bible as a family is such a good habit to teach the kids. Oh and yes, I agree, you do need a walk in closet. :)

Terri Beavers said...

What a cozy looking bedroom. I'd want to hang out there. I'm an empty nester and miss the days when the kids were young and always wanted to hang out in my bedroom.
