Does the change of Season have you have you wanting to refresh your home this fall? I would highly recommend Article. Baig and his cofounders – Fraser Hall and twins Sam and Andy Prochazka launched the Vancouver based company In May 2013.  How do they do it? Cutting out the middlemen, like wholesaler warehouses and export agents, the company’s mission is to sell quality modern furniture at an affordable price. Earlier this month Article has released its Fall 2019 Entertaining Campaign which features three different Looks: Wabi Home, Modern Organic and Modern Glam.

And I was very excited to see they also launched two new bedroom lines, both which are made of Black American called Lenia and Nera,

Our Master Bedroom Tour + Get The Look

Master Bedroom Tour + Get The Look

It feels so good to be done our Bedroom Design.  I liked our bedroom before, just didn’t love it.  I went through a big bohemian phase and feel like my style is evolving to more of a Eclectic style with a hint of the California vibe.   I wanted to freshen up the space to have a bright, simple and calming feel to the space with some texture.  Let’s get into it.

This is what it looked like. The bedroom was pretty neutral as I painted it out “Simply White” by Benjamin Moore and added one bold wall in “Witching Hour” by Benjamin Moore.  I added some light drapes from Home Sense and the room has a dark grey carpet.  Don’t be fooled it’s totally okay to layer a area rug on the carpet.  Big goals is to put in a new wood floor.  In order to do that I would need to do the entire house and there is no budget for that.  So dark carpet it is!  The night tables were thrifted and are actually end tables, but they worked at the time and were the perfect height.

The placement of the bed just never felt right in the room and I really wanted to update that IKEA pendant that everyone was goo goo for!  We all go through our phases right!

I love this room guys.  Our new bed and nightstands really give the room a modern, simple look and the wood adds some warmth.  By Placing the bed on that wall it allowed me to frame the bed. First thing I did was gave this room a lick of white paint! Because the room is north facing the right white was key! Thanks to My Favourite Paint the owner Renee came out and helped me select the perfect shade called Chantilly Lace by Benjamin Moore. It really changed the entire feeling in the space!!! Don’t worry! I have a White Paint Guide Post coming soon!   I chose this beautiful bright white Linen Fabric by Ennis to help the space feel airy and the black hardware really gives it a polished look. The curtains were made by David’s Design Center.  I chose to go with a pleat and so glad I did.

When selecting and measuring for my two little windows I had to really consider the light in this space.  Again the room is dark but I am also a light sleeper.  When I wake I aint going back down easy and so I wanted the space to be bright during the day but keep light out so I’m not woken up at the break of dawn.  I already have Hunter Douglas Cellular shades to make it dark when needed so the curtains were used to really soften and frame those little windows.  Depending on where your windows face you may or may not have these issues but,  wrapping it up this is all things to cinsider.  The fabric and drapes were gifted Ennis Fabrics and David’s Design Center, otherwise It would be Homesense curtains again.

Moving along the bed is from Rove Concepts.  It works perfectly in the space and the wood adds some organic modern design to the space.  Goes so perfectly with the fresh white walls and it has a nice contrast with the hints of blue.

The rug is from Kech Mara Designs.  I wanted to add a neutral colour so there’s a nice contrast between the bed and the carpet again with nice a nice contrast and texture in the design. 

The bedding is all from Cultiver Goods which is THE SOFTEST EVER!!!! linked below.  This bedding is all organic linen made from European flax and feels soft to the touch. I chose to get separate fitted sheet and a different bed sheet for an effortless look.  The Mira Throw is a heavy weight Linen and adds a layer of texture to the bed.

The nightstand and lamps are two peas in a pod.  The lamp is a beautiful organice piece of teak paired with the modern walnut nightstand works and I just love it. The nightstands instantly make the space feel fresh and now. These also have two soft closing drawers which I love and loads of space.

Of course I tossed my bible “The Surf Shack” by Nina Freudenberger, my Saje for a calming smell, my newest ceramic splurge by Element Clay Studio for all those wee bits and a vintage ceramic piece with pretty dried daisies from West Elm.

Let’s go to the other side of this room.

Are you not in love!!!  Look at the super model of a bench.  This was gifted from Wu and MchughI I styled it here at the foot of our bed bur for everyday yes we are tv in the room type of people.  The antique bench adds so much texture and character to the room.  Playing the other side of the spectrum from the modern Scandinavian furniture they just work and it’s pretty darn gorgeous.

I borrowed one my CB2 chairs down stairs to fill the space in the corner.

I’m pretty happy with this room.  I do have a couple things I would like to update over time. Some wall hooks or A beautiful Antique wood wall rack. A chair for the corner so I’m not borrowing chairs from the living room and a slightly larger light.  I love the semi flush mount by Mitzi but I think a small chandelier would look better.  First have to scrape that popcorn ceiling. ( not looking forward to that job.)  This room is so easy to keep up and not feeling cluttered.  In a master bedroom I like to keep the space simple and peaceful.  So that’s a wrap folks!!! If you have any sources for an Antique Wall Rack pop a comment below! Would love to know how you like the room too and if you would change anything. Till Next time!!
