It’s official… our primary bedroom is complete. Never thought we’d say those words out loud let alone have pictures to share – but here we are! When we started this over a year ago, we honestly didn’t know where to start if I’m being honest. The goal? To simply warm up our bedroom and make it feel like a cabin we can wake up in every morning and tuck back into at the end of every day.
I guess we should call it our real life “Cottage in the Woods” inspired bedroom.
The challenge? Our bedroom was like a big bright glass box covered with windows and limited wall space. Don’t get me wrong, we love the natural light but how could we re-imagine this space to be a warm and cozy oasis? Because — that is exactly what a primary bedroom should feel like.
For starters, we got on Pinterest. A lot. We found a pattern in our pinning to everything that had a cabin-inspired look and feel. That instantly helped us catch a vision for this space.
We added a fireplace. We knew this was tricky considering this is the only wall in the room not covered with windows. However, we felt like a stone-finish fireplace would instantly add warmth to the space.

A seated nook area – Not only do these chairs help fill up the space in this big room up but we love how it invites warm hangout moments into the bedroom. It’s also nice to see our bed isn’t resting alone in one giant box!
The Bed Itself- since it is the center-piece of the room, we chose one that would compliment the vision of what we might see in a cabin. We love the soft and comfortable texture against the wood and it was definitely the perfect finishing touch!
Our Rug - we were looking everywhere for a durable but soft woven rug that’s kid + pet friendly and we finally found one that we LOVE for this bedroom.
Paint color: We went with JHwall paints colors 102 and 103. We did one layer of 102 and then another layer of 103 over it. It is a lime wash style paint that adds more texture to the wall.
