how to decorate your master bedroom when renting


Hello + Happy Friday!

I am so excited to share this post with you. I feel like I have been working on our master bedroom for so many months, and yet when I look at it I feel like I have so much more to do. Ever since Stephen and I moved in together I had the urge to 'decorate' our bedroom. When we got married, that urge got greater, I mean come on we NEED a cute master right?!

We are currently renting the house we are in so this by no means is our finish product. The argument and reason the master has  taken so long to be decorated is my husband doesn't see the point to decorate something if its not long term. I guess he doesn't realize furniture can be moved?! However, in some ways I totally agree with him. We will be moving out of this house in May so items like a bed frame, wall decor and a full dresser set will have to wait. Once we purchase our own home those items can be bought to fit the space. Until then, decorating can still happen... keep reading!

I have always wanted my room to be bright and white! Since I do not have control over the walls in this house so I have to use my furniture and bedding to get the look. The dresser I have is a diy (I painted then distressed an old Ikea dresser) and the black mirror (yes, is that mirror not incredible?! It is an old bathroom mirror I had a frame made to fit) will also be painted white and distressed but not until we move because that mirror is hea-vy!

My favorite items and why I love them so much:

Lamps - I have been wanting these lamps for so so long. I am glad I went with the large size it allows for the frames on the inside to fit under the shade perfectly. 

Bench - 'why do we need a bench in the bedroom again?' most asked question by the hubs. Um, BECAUSE its cute! I have a slight obsession with bedroom benches and would have loves a soft pink one however that would be pushing the limits since I am sharing this bedroom with a boy. 

Candles - I love both of these candles scents from Anthropologie. It feels great to snuggle un under the covers reading a book scrolling through Instagram relaxing to the smell of peonies! 

There you have it; how to decorate your master when renting, it can be done! I am excited to keep collecting ideas on Pinterest over the next few months and one day the bedroom will be done, until then this little oasis will be just fine!

Such a cute space you have here! It sounds like your master bedroom in the next place will be even more fantastic, if this one is already so lovely. You have quite the eye for interior decorating!

What a pretty space! Love those mirrored pictures frames! And I totally understand about not wanting to go all out decorating with a temporary space. My husband is in the military and it makes it hard to ever want to spend a ton of time and invest the money to decorate when it is all so temporary!

Your bedroom looks absolutely amazing! I love all the textures added into the room, it makes the all crisp white so much more interesting! Love this.

This room is gorgeous! So clean and airy. I live in NYC and rent (obviously lol) and I totally feel your pain there! My boyfriend hates investing in decor/ furniture because our apartment isn't "permanent". He's getting better though!
