THE DEXTER HOUSE
Happy Friday! I wanted to show you guys the master bedroom at the Dexter House today. I haven’t shown you this space yet because it’s not “100% finished”. Sure the renovation work is over (and has been for quite some time), but the room still feels unfinished. Perhaps it’s because there’s nothing on the walls besides our giant headboard. Or because everything except that headboard is leftover furniture from one of our other houses. But considering that this house will be a rental and with more pressing items on our punch list (not to mention the rate we buy houses), it’s possible this room will never feel “finished”, so I’m going to share it as is with you guys today.
Let’s look back to last year when we started work on this room.
Obviously I was a *teensy bit* pregnant at that point (and actually all points through the renovation). Luckily I didn’t have baby Brooks until the space looked like this:
Early during the renovation process we decided to convert the dining nook into a master bathroom (our first!). So we added a doorway from the master bedroom to the nook and then got to work on plumbing in a bathroom.
And that’s pretty much the whole bedroom (except for the wall closet, which deserves it’s own post). I’d really love to do more decorating in this room. Wallpaper? Paint an accent wall? Or perhaps add a hanging chair next to the patio door so I can spend all my free time reading in it (just joking, about the free time that is – I have an 8-month-old and a toddler instead of ‘free’ time)…?
I’d love to hear what you’d do to this space, even if we never actually lift another finger in here.
p.s. Studio McGee has been killing it lately and their Claybourne project is no exception. Check out this stunning home or get lost in their archives…you won’t be sorry!
p.p.s. Love this 1934 farmhouse renovation, especially all the antiques that are so well curated and styled. Kudos to the lady of the house!
p.p.p.s. I have yet to install wallpaper in one of our renovations because I’m gun-shy. But removable wallpaper, well I could get into that! Check out this roundup of amazing prints.
