I’m continuing with touring the rooms of my Florida house before it sells! Up next, the Florida main bedroom tour. This is my favorite space to spend time in. We did some fancy pants upgrades that make it feel really expensive with with the molding. Plus the chinoiserie wallpaper is so good! Ready to tour?!
Florida Main Bedroom Tour
Let’s start with the video tour so you get an overview of the space. I thought it’d be fun to share my favorite details from the room. Then, I’ll dive in with more details below:
If the video doesn’t work on the blog post, you can watch it on YouTube here. I’d be thrilled if you subscribed to my YouTube channel! Videos are actually released on YouTube first (usually the night before they’re published on the blog) so you get a sneak peek as a subscriber. Thank you!
photo tour of the bedroom
Here’s my favorite view of the bedroom- it’s full of light!
The room is inspired by the hotel lobby of The Colony. I toured it right before doing my renovation and loved the vibe. If you’re lacking inspiration, try going to places in real life to see how they feel! Besides hotel lobbies, cute restaurants, or boutique clothing shops can give great ideas too.
For lights, I have pretty sconces from Kichler. That freed up much needed space on the nightstands.
The pink wallpaper with the textured headboard and all the pretty trim- it just does it for me!
On the wall next to the bed, I have my dresser with my vintage hanging bird. This little moment is a little weird and quirky, plus it reminds me of the Tiki Room! Thanks to my friend Laurel for giving me this special parrot!
The parrot hangs in front of a silk vintage scarf that I framed. The flower background make the bird stand out and coordinates with the wallpaper.
The closet next to the dresser was always tricky trim wise because the right side is the next wall so I couldn’t add uniform trim to both sides. Instead, we added a header with a pretty shell piece of molding.
After- bookcase Wall
On the wall next to the closet, I have my vintage pagoda bookshelf that I found for $40 on Facebook Marketplace. If you’ve shopped for anything pagoda shape, you know it’s a great deal! It’s from the 50’s and perfect for my inspiration with the pagoda shaped fireplace mantel in the hotel.
One of my favorite things on the shelf is this needle point parrot. I found a vintage kit on Etsy and it was my quarantine project. This thing took me probably 10 months to finish. So you better believe I framed it for in here!
This wall also has my vanity where I get ready each day. Which is helpful since we only have one bathroom. The chair is vintage and is the first thing I thrifted for the house!
Right outside these windows are palm trees that move so beautifully in the wind. Sitting in here with the windows open on a sunny day is one of my favorite things!
The bedroom has a little entry. I painted the door mint blue to give. it a little contrast.
I do love the modern art hanging in the entry and how it plays well with the center onlay (the piece of molding) above the door.

before and after photos
And now for my favorite part, before and after pictures of the bedroom! The top one, I don’t have a before picture of the room blank, so I put one in with how I first decorated the room. It was a fail for me- too dark.
We spent a lot of time and money on adding the shiplap ceiling and crown molding. The white on white trim with the good light this room gets is so pretty to my eyes. Dang, I’ll miss it.

So so pretty!!! Thank you for posting the links to your sources used. I have a question about the brass/gold window sill covers. What are they and how do you get them!? I have a 1960s ranch that I’m gradually transforming from original, not cool vintage original, plaster walls, and extra dumpy. The window sills are so cringe. We are replacing windows as we can afford them and would love to incorporate these brass covers. Thank you for sharing your fabulous creativity with the rest of us DIYers.

Hi! So my window sills in my bedroom are yellow-ish tile that is original to the house. We actually replaced the tile in the living room and kitchen with quartz remnants from our countertops. It was on the list to eventually replace the yellow tile. I wish it was something cooler!
