Styling a master bedroom dresser doesn’t have to be complicated or costly. See how this master bedroom dresser styling was created by removing an unsightly TV and shopping my home for meaningful, beautiful decor.
The Master Bedroom Dilemma
I recently shared on Instagram my struggle with TV in the master bedroom. My husband is a night owl and likes to decompress by watching Seinfeld every night (no objection there). The problem is, I end up getting sucked into watching TV way too late. He can operate on very little sleep, while I need a solid 8-9 hours…no exceptions.
I finally made the decision to remove the TV after we installed our custom drapes in the master bedroom. The big black box was killing the new aesthetic, on top of the fact that I was chronically sleep deprived. The TV had to go. Here’s a really good article weighing the pros and cons of having a TV in the master bedroom.
Master Bedroom Dresser Styling
Ahhhhh, much better.
Let me be clear…this change had very little to do with how the TV looked in here. If I had not been so tired and wanting to create new bedtime habits, the TV would still be here. This lovely look is just a byproduct of my sleep deprivation.
This over-sized jute tassel was the only item I purchased for our master bedroom dresser styling. As soon as I brought my favorite $15 thrift-store lamp into the mix, I knew I wanted to drape a large tassel around it. I spotted this one at Joann’s just a week ago and knew it would be perfect.
These ceramic dishes make their way around my house because I love them in so many places, but I think they’ve found their permanent home. I can even use them to drop my jewelry into.
Decor needs to be meaningful for me, so I gathered several items that hold special memories for me and Jeff. This glass box has a small rock I picked up on a trip we took to the mountains. I love how it looks on top of two of my favorite coffee table books.
Also on top of those books is the maidenhair fern that used to be on Jeff’s nightstand. It wasn’t getting enough light in that location, so this worked out both for my styling and the for plant’s health.
I knew I wanted art layered over the round mirror, but I couldn’t find a smaller piece to go with the larger one. When I found this love letter Jeff wrote to me over twenty years ago, I slipped it into one of my favorite linen and brass picture frames. I couldn’t love any piece of artwork more.
Unique Styling Pieces
My Bloomist pale wood links have made their way to several locations in my house as well because they are such a fantastic and versatile decor item. I love them here, there, and everywhere, but I think they’ll stay on our master bedroom dresser for quite some time.
Speaking of things I love, my Chelsea Fly art is such a treasure! I’ve been waiting for the perfect spot to prominently display it. One unique aspect of her art (among so many) is the frayed edges of the fabric she paints on. I didn’t want those edges to get lost underneath a mat, so I just mounted the art on top of a piece of watercolor paper.
I’m so in love with how our master bedroom dresser styling turned out! All of the elements work so beautifully together, and now our bedroom is that much closer to being the haven we need and desire.
I received a lot of requests to share the finished look with sources, so I put together a mood board for reference.
My lamp and the glass box were both thrifted finds, and the gray dishes were antique. I’ve linked everything else as accurately as I could, and as always, thank you for shopping through my links.
