It seems like the master bedroom is always the last room to get a makeover while many homeowners work hard to make the more public areas look great. I think the belief is that nobody sees the master bedroom so it falls low on the priority list but in the interest of making US happy, I decided our bedroom needed to be a sanctuary. The only problem was that although I didn't leave it completely undecorated from the start, I did wait until the rest of the house was basically finished before adding any special touches and guess what . . . the budget was pretty slim. I started brainstorming and digging around online for ideas when I decided a mural on the wall would be a perfect way to ground the bed. We had purchased one gallon of the wrong color paint when we were originally painting the walls of our bedroom so I knew I had that to work with. Pulling inspiration from our bedspread and wanting to create a relaxing atmosphere for us, I decided to do a freehand organic mural covering the entire wall. I used an angled 1 1/2 inch paint brush and just kept painting until it looked right. This took about 2 1/2 hours one evening.
In the end, I created a serene bedroom with a well grounded bed. The room finally had polish and a centerpiece and we love the organic feel.
