White and Blue Lake House Master Bedroom

The sun is shining here in MI today and I’m tempted to break out the outdoor furniture! It sounds like more snow is on the way, but the appearance of the sun does mean that I finally had some light to shoot our master bedroom this morning! White and Blue Lake House Master Bedroom

So, SOOOO many questions about our new bed, (I don’t blame you, I’m obsessed with it and you can’t beat the price!) that even though I still haven’t figured out my new light fixture situation in here, I wanted to share some progress shots of our white and blue lake house master bedroom.

And here we go! First up, I received many questions on the bed color – we have it in white, and I feel like it’s a pretty true white.

Our walls are painted Extra White by Sherwin Williams, and it doesn’t look too creamy or “dirty” against them at all. I am really pleased with the quality of this bed for the price.

The fabric has a nice linen texture to it and it was fairly easy to put together. My 7-year-old and I assembled it on snow day number 4 million or something… :)  I’m thinking of hiring him out around town to assemble IKEA furniture next!

I kept our same Serena & Lily duvet cover and shams, but added in some cute Target pillows I snagged on sale (They are from Threshold, but I can’t find them online).

Here are the new nightstands in action! I’ve been having so much fun styling these! The bigger nightstands have been amazing to have more storage, and I love that the drawers have an outlet right in them. We keep our kid’s electronic devices in the Mr.’s nightstand so I know where they are and my kids can “check them out” when they want to use their screentime.

I found these little round baskets that are the perfect size to fit on the open shelf and it’s been nice to hide away any clutter in them that would normally be on the nightstand top. Pens, change, hair ties, etc… all get hidden away.

I’m in love with this cute little bird planter, it’s from Target too, but of course, I can’t find it online. Sorry about that!

I feel like our painting and wall sconces become the focal point with the cleaner lines of this bed, and it’s so much more comfortable to watch tv or work on our laptops in here at night.

I’m still deciding between losing the bench in here or not. We originally got the bench because our old bed was so high that Charlie couldn’t jump on or off. This one is at an easy height for him, but my creature of habit the Mr. has gotten used to having this bench here to put his socks and shoes on every morning so we shall see. What do you guys think? Are you team “bench” or “no bench”? Or third option “new bench”? The Mr. would like to state he is very much against the third option, ha…

I also had a few comments regarding if this was the only storage we had. I guess I don’t share this side of the room much because I really, really need to refinish this dresser. It was my Great Grandmothers, and I’ve had it forever, but it has some issues from being in storage when we were building. As soon as it’s a safe temp to paint outside I have plans to sand it down and give it a fresh coat of paint plus possibly some new hardware.

Overall, I’m finally happy with the direction this room is going! I just need to figure out my light fixture situation but don’t worry, I will report back soon.

Charlie would like you to note that he doesn’t care what the bed looks like as long as I stop removing him from it to take photos…

  1. I’m sorry I’m looking everywhere to try and figure this out – how tall are your master bedroom ceilings? We are building and the cathedral ceiling we wanted isnt possible with aour hip roof, but I’m not loving tray ceilings. I love your master and was wondering if you’ve got a 9ft or 8ft ceiling in there.

    1. Hey Melissa we had the same issue with our hip roof. Our ceilings are 9 ft everywhere besides the vaulted living room.

  2. Hello
    Just wondering how the rug has held up? I am thinking about it for my living room which is a high traffic area. The reviews on line are varied. Thanks!

    By the way, just beautiful:)

    1. Hey Tami, I’m not sure I would use this in a high traffic area. It has been great in our bedroom but I have trimmed a few pieces of the jute that have popped up after vacuuming etc. not sure if that would get worse with a ton of traffic?

  3. I LOVE those nightstands! Currently looking for new ones and wish we had the space for them. The wood tone is perfect. Beautiful room. I am team bench :)

  4. I am team bench! Where are your window shades from? I’ve been looking for something similar…I love that they hide so well!

  5. I’m trying to gauge the headboard height. Do you have both a mattress and box spring on top of the bed rails?


    1. Yes we have a mattress and box spring. If you click on the link all the dimensions of the bed are included on their site :)

  6. Love the blue and white! Your room looks beautiful and the bench is a nice touch especially if the Mr. uses it!

  7. Kelly! I have followed you SINCE you started blogging. Seriously love your style and this bed! I never never would have said $600 for a king. I mean really. SUCH a good price. But I am already bugging my Mr. for the new sofa you snagged because we moved too 1.5 yrs ago and ours has never worked. In fact, number rearrange 35 today. So I am hoping he will see the light via your gorgeous pics. Thanks!

    1. We actually have a queen bed but it’s still a great price for the nice quality of the bed and thanks for sticking with me so long :)

  8. All looks beautiful!! Keep the bench because it’s very functional and you have the room for it!!

  9. Very nice work Kelly! Love the bed and am voting to keep the bench, especially since you have plenty of room for it. Not sure what options you are considering to replace the fan, but I think a fixture with rattan shade would look awesome and add some nice texture ?

    1. Yes actually I blogged about that a few weeks ago with a few different rattan ones I’m considering! Great minds think alike ;)

  10. I’m for keeping the bench. We have one and use it to put on our shoes. It is convenient and can be styled
    with a throw to feel welcoming.

  11. Are the height of the nightstands comfortable when lying in bed? They seem so short. Love your house! It is a dream i wish i could have.

    1. Hey, Marilyn, they are a pretty typical nightstand height from what I found shopping around. I think they look lower because of the height of our windows. They are actually the same height as our mattress so very comfortable to reach.

  12. Team bench, for sure! Charlie would be so disappointed without one. The bench legs coordinated perfectly with the curvy lines of your old bed, which I loved, but not so much with the modern round black legs of the new bed. Even if you switch out the bench legs or get a new bench (I like option 3), you might want to try wrapping the black bed legs with some similar white fabric or even paper, just to see how it looks, because the black legs really stand out against the rug and white bed frame. Wrapping them would soften that area visually. Of course, that’s just my two cents worth. I LOVE your new bed and nightstands! Your bedroom is beautiful! :)

    1. The black legs of the bed don’t show as much in person as they do in photos. Especially because I typically shoot my photos at waist height but we never view them that low in real life. I’m glad you are on team new bench! I think the curvy legs are what is bugging me about the bench in here, I’ll have to see if swapping them out is an option!

  13. Just love this whole room! I love the bench! A nice chair in the corner would work well also but then Charlie couldn’t get on the bed. ;) He is so darn cute! I was wondering what color you would be painting your grandmas pretty dresser? I inherited my grandmas cherry wood bedroom furniture and I’m thinking of painting it white to go with my lighter style. Love your whole house! ?

    1. Oh a fun chair would be nice! Decisions, decisions! I’ll probably paint it white again but I’m thinking of adding antique brass handles.

  14. Team Chair. The room is beautiful, love the new bed. Laughing at your comments about Charlie not caring as long as you stop removing him to take photos. Glad to hear you limit screen time for your kids. It becomes an arm wrestling match when they’re a bit older, but good to instill it now. Hope the snow stops, we’re still getting it up here in Toronto.

    1. It is a lot harder to set limits as they get older! It really helps us to have a designated spot in the house they are supposed to be at all times unless it’s “screentime” thanks!

  15. Love all of your cottage! Vote for a bench but maybe cleaner lines to suit this new style. Also, please enlighten us on what you did to frame the TV. We have a “cottage up north” but not nearly as wonderful as yours.Going up in May to open it up.

    1. Yay another team new bench lol, that’s where I’m leaning! Our trim guys framed it for us. All they did was flip the 2×4’s the other way in this section to allow for the indent in the wall. Then drywalled the nook in and framed it with some trim. I like that it looks a little less like this big black box on the wall.

  16. I would keep the bench, or get another (sorry Mr.!). 1) It looks good and 2) still probably a good idea for Charlie. Smaller dogs can develop hip/knee problems so the less he has to jump is probably better. Ask me how I know? (We have a yorki-poo who has had 1 ACL surgery and a lengthy round of PT for the other ACL!! She has steps to a chest that is at the end of our bed, but she’s a jump and lunger).

    Pretty, pretty room! Very soothing too.

    1. Hey Renee, my mom has yorkies too and they have stairs as well. Charlie is a bit bigger at 15 lbs so it’s not too hard for him to get on things but he is a jumper too!

  17. I love the update! So sophisticated yet very comfortable! You can never go wrong with blue and white. ?

  18. I am team bench! I like the one you have or I’m sure you’d find a perfect new one too! either way, I feel it makes the room feel more complete and cozy!
