Drama in the Bedroom: Master Bedroom Makeover: PART 2

The master bedroom is almost ready for grand reveal!

The exposed bare bulb trend has been on my radar for quite sometime. A couple of exposed bulbs on either side of a bed can really elevate the space and add a touch of drama!

In my earlier post I had mentioned coveting these gorgeous wooden Edison light pendants from VintageLed, a homegrown Melbourne brand that specialises in Edison bulbs and wooden, metal and ceramic pendants and light bulb kits. Their website is full of functional, energy efficient and gorgeous light bulbs and pendants kits. You can have a look at their amazing collection here! If you're into light pendants as much I am...I highly recommend these!
It was quite a dilemma deciding whether or not to hang the pendants from the ceiling (which would have been quite expensive since they would have had to be hard wired by an electrician) or a DIY option that was cheaper but might not have the same effect!

In the end I decided to go ahead with a bit of both. I took the pendants to my local light shop and had the wire extended quite a bit with a plug at the end instead of the default hardwiring fixtures that the pendants usually come with.

A trip to Bunnings was made to get a couple of large white ceiling hooks. The hooks were secured to the ceiling using plaster screws and then the wires looped around the hooks. 

Ta da...desired effect achieved at less than half the cost!

The king size bedspread is from Dainty Red Bird. The stunning Royal Bliss bedspread is a part of their eco range - pure white soft organic cotton with translucent organza cutwork, hand stitched magic!

The wooden pendants are so beautiful that I wanted to keep the space as minimally decorated as possible. Subtle colours of white, black and grey with a colourful throw and some greenery. 

Industrial chicness!!!

The pendant lights are up, the bed linen on and the art is on the walls. The only element left to complete in the Master Bedroom Makeover are the window dressings which unfortunately means a trip to IKEA unless I can come up with another option! 

I'll post a few more photos in my next post after the window dressings are up!


A huge thank you to VintageLed who kindly sponsored the pendant light kits, however the thoughts & opinions expressed in the post are all mine.
