Rustic Chic Mini Master Reveal-My Desk Area

Rustic Chic Master Bedroom Reveal

Hi friends! First off I just want to say thank you, for all of your support!! Whether you have been with me from the beginning or just began following, I am so grateful. I am a sharing person by nature, so all I wanted with this blog was to share what I know in the hopes I could inspire a few people. To realize that creating a beautiful home doesn’t have to be rushed, that it doesn’t have to cost a fortune and that you can create a meaningful home from doing it yourself. I had only a few visitors a day when I began, really. And to be honest at the time it was enough. This journey has far exceeded my expectations, so thank you from the bottom of my heart for the time you share here with me:).

Last week I shared some simple updates I did to my master bedroom to give it a fresh, uncomplicated feel for winter, click HERE to check it out.

And today I am finally sharing a mini rustic chic reveal of the other side of my master bedroom-the desk area. This of course, still is ALL on a budget.

Office Area-Cost Plus Campaign Desk

This space was also featured in the Feb issue of BHG, did you happen see it?

Bedroom Mini Makeover-Rustic Barnwood Mirror

I just love the color palette, the warm weathered woods, the repeated jute & woven textures with the grays & whites and the pop of color{persimmon/coral}.  Rustic Chic Master Bedroom Reveal-Driftwood Chandelier Cost Plus

The driftwood light is from HERE. My dad installed it & thought I was crazy to take down the existing one but I knew it would be perfect in the master bedroom & I was right!

Campaign Desk Cost Plus- Rustic Chic Master Bedroom

My husband works from home a day or 2 during the week so we needed a quiet space away from the commotion of everyday life. I searched high & low for a desk that would fit the space and work well style wise. This is the Campaign Desk from Cost Plus. I was able to get the look for less by shopping around & comparing prices, a similar home site had this desk for $600 more.

 Tip-this desk is easy to move and can be used for extra dining when you are entertaining:).

Campaign Desk Cost Plus & Ikea Chair

When we first saw this house I was in awe of its location, I never, ever thought we would be able to own a home so close to the water. We live down a quiet and very peaceful tree lined street with views of the bay & the barrier island that inspire me everyday. My husband loves to SUP{ I am getting there}, kayak and windsurf so it is perfect for him, he can just walk out the front door and go. We both feel very blessed.

Rustic Chic Master Bedroom With Grays & Warm Coral. And Barnwood Mirror

 In my original design plan I had a large rustic barnwood mirror but after buying the desk I realized this white salvaged wood mirror would be a better fit to balance the color scheme. I found it at a favorite local shop out on the North Fork of Long Island, this was a splurge{sources at the bottom} but so worth it!

Restoration Hardware Outlet Gray Linen Drapes

I still LOVE my DIY Jute Rope Rods that cost me nothing, the main thing is either screw the eye hooks into a stud or anchor them well. The look isn’t perfect, you may need to tighten them every once in a while but it works in this space since they aren’t functional.

  1. Your room is beautiful Jen. There is so much more here that I’m surprised wasn’t featured in the magazine. The bookshelves and oh my, that Mirror, are great! But my favorite part of the room has got to be the rope ties on the curtains…..so cool!!

  2. Hi Jen, while this is a stunning room I am truly grateful for sharing all the ways you thought outside the box! The rope curtains!? I mean, you just saved my diy behind so much money. lol. I will be trying this out really soon. I do have a question regarding the wall treatment behind your bed. Is it wall paper, contact paper or paint?

  3. I read all about it today in BHG! Lovely, lovely. I have the same desk! It is my husband’s because he runs two monitors for work, I love the big surface space, and the style of that desk! Brilliant use of the rope for rods for the curtains!

  4. Your room looks so pretty!! Great job! I just love the view that is has. I’ve never been to the east coast but would like to visit someday!!

  5. Love the gray everywhere. Now that my hair is graying I look particularly good in gray. I need to buy up everything I need while the gray is available and I’ll be looking great and my surroundings will be a compliment to me also. Well maybe not too much gray or I’ll blend in totally. Really love the room and the desk in front of the windows. It’s all perfect. Do you rent it out by the night? Would love to stay there.

  6. Beautiful! Where did you find the dress form? I am part of a Jewelers Cooperative and we are always looking for great ways to display pieces. This dress form is wonderful!

  7. The Wow Factor!!!! Everything is just so beautiful & elegant!! Thank you for sharing! Where did you get your white shaggy rug?
