A Minimal Mid-Century Master Bedroom Makeover

A minimal mid-century master bedroom makeover from Paper & Stitch

Admittedly, it seems like every six months or so, I get an itch to redo one (or more) rooms in the house. Honestly, I can’t help it… I’m perfectly accepting of change in one (and possibly only?) aspect of my life and it’s on the home decor front. And with having just finished up our guest bedroom makeover, I couldn’t stop myself from giving Jeff and I’s bedroom a quick facelift too. It’s a sickness really.

So, I partnered with Parachute, an amazing home textiles company with the coziest bedding you can imagine, for a master bedroom update that I’m certain will last longer than all the others. Even Jeff is fully onboard. Yay!

This time around, I paired everything down – erring toward a more refined color palette of neutrals, mixed with just a few pops of color. And playing up natural textures and finishes we already had, with a few new pieces that we’ll have for the long haul.

That said, this is still (kind of) a work in progress. I’m almost there…just need to frame the piece above the bed and eventually switch out my inexpensive rug solution with the rug of my dreams. BUT I’m not in the market for a $2,000+ rug at the moment, so my DIY solution will work for now.

I just bought two identical 5×7 rugs and laid them next to each other on the floor to form one large 10×7 rug for under the bed. It’s not perfect, but it was under $350 total, and fills out the room pretty well for now.

Parachute bedding

Aside from the rug and some new (matching) nightstands from Ikea, we changed out all the bedding. In part because I wanted a change. AND in part because Luna (our 11 year old pitbull) loves to play on the bed. As a result, she’s ripped many, MANY sheet sets to shreds over the years, with her craziness… the girl plays hard. Eeeek! So, we got some new ones from Parachute. And let me tell you, they are AMAZING.

We got the Percale Venice Set in white (which includes a fitted sheet, duvet cover, and two pillowcases), plus white Essential Shams (which are quilted), and Euro Shams (in sand). And the whole setup feels straight from a fancy hotel, which I’m super into. Sleep is VERY important to me…I could practically sleep through the weekend if someone would let me. So, cozy AF bedding is pretty important in my book.

And if you’re looking for other super soft textiles, I have their alpaca throw in natural. It’s crazy soft and Franz likes it too, as you can see. 🙂

Other than that, with the exception of the black and white Acapulco chair (which is new), we already had the furniture…two vintage dressers, a Blu Dot mirror, and our platform bed frame. And the accessories for the most part were already in the space too – they just needed some rearranging.

Hi Sally. The large dresser is vintage. I bought it locally from a company called Good Bones. Here’s the link: https://www.instagram.com/good_bones_vintage/?hl=en


Hi there, where did you buy the bigger dresser?


I really love the natural colors.. very nice on the eye. The few pops are contrasting and bold. Very nice makeover!
