Our Austin Casa || Mid-Century Modern Master Bedroom Reveal

Every room needs a goal, a vision.  Some rooms are harder than others. Our office for example: I spent just about the entire time the house was under construction trying to figure out what that space looked like. Is it an office with a pull-out guest bed or a guest bedroom with a desk in it? Will the kids use it or is it a totally off limits adults-only space?  Our master bedroom did not have that identity crisis. My goal for it has always been for it to be a retreat for us.  A place where we can say peace out to everything that has gone on during the day and recharge before another starts anew.  What toddler meltdown? There’s laundry in the laundry room that needs to be folded? Work deadlines? Not in this room, my friends!

The base of this room is most definitely the calm white walls and cozy cream rug. The walls are Behr Marquee in Gallery White in matte finish and the rug is Dwell Studio from Wayfair.  We partnered with Wayfair on all of the big furniture items in this room and we couldn’t be more pleased.  We’ve been living with them for over four months now and they’re exactly what we were looking for in this space.  The wood really warms everything up.  As for the art, it’s a DIY that Britt and I made based on the piece in this post.   I knew I wanted something above the bed that wasn’t a painting or photo, but I also felt like a woven or macrame piece wasn’t quite right.  I love the idea of a quilt or textile here, but just haven’t found the right one.  (I feel like that’s one of those special pieces that I talked about here that I’ll just have to stumble upon serendipitously one day.)  Anyways, I’m actually super pleased with how this piece turned out.  Let us know if you would like the DIY details! We might post them separately…

This nook makes me so happy. When we were planning out lighting– like 18 months ago or something!– we were trying to imagine where we would want pendants, sconces, and chandeliers.  I imagined something on either side of our bed, but the windows make it challenging to do anything in the wall there and I was sure we would want permanent pendants there, so we opted for table lamps and decided to do this Schoolhouse swing arm sconce in the reading nook.

I love that this space feels like a good balance of really modern with the chair from Wayfair and art, but also organic and mid-century with the table and accessory details.  We used the same fan in this space that we did in Parker’s room as well. It’s from Lamps Plus and we’re super happy with them.

The roman shades and window draperies are both custom by Calico.  This was the first room that we did with them and I immediately knew I needed them in the other bedrooms.  They are hands down, without a doubt the highest quality you can possibly imagine!  (You can read more about our Calico experience here!)  I don’t know how we could have done anything except custom in this room. The window goes all of the way to the ceiling, so you wouldn’t have been able to do just any rod. Not to mention the size of the window would be a challenge.  (If you visit the Austin store, be sure to ask for Greg!)

When I polled you guys on Instagram about going dark or light with the window draperies, it was a pretty even split. I really the like the drama of the dark fabric, though, and feel like anything light would have been too contrast-y with the bedding– Parachute Home in the color way Coal. Although after looking at the images I feel like we are desperately in need of a light-colored chunky throw for the bed to bring it all together!

We used these vases of eucalyptus for a shoot a few weeks ago.  I love the way it all naturally dried, so now the three vases are scattered throughout the house!
