Who loves spring as much as I do? This season always feels like a fresh start. It’s the perfect time to shift from the neutrals of winter to a more bright and colorful palette with beautiful blooms and garden-inspired decor.

If you’re coming over from Sonya of Sonya Burgess, welcome! Didn’t you love her simple steps to adding spring touches to the master bedroom? She has so many great ideas.
I think I could have one of the smallest master bedrooms. After living in our 1920 cottage for almost 9 years, I’m convinced of it. Here are a few of the things that were not considered when building a house in the 1920s…
- Spacious rooms
- Storage space and large closets
- An open concept floor plan
The previous owners did add on to the house in the late seventies or early eighties and created a very large guest room upstairs that would have been a perfect room for us. Except for the fact that there is no bathroom on the second level, the stairs are very old and dangerous, and there is no closet.
So we decided to go with a very small bedroom on the main floor and eventually added a bathroom and walk-in closet by using neighboring rooms and repurposing them. We basically sleep here, but that’s about it. And here’s the funny thing, we have just enough room for a king-sized bed, a nightstand, and a small table. That’s it!
Luckily, we had a plan. We would create 2 built-ins in the bedroom. The first, shown above, was where the original closet was. Here’s a side note: we were able to add a table in the pace to the left after taking the door out that used to be there.
The second built-in was an afterthought. When we were adding a bathtub to the bathroom on the other side of the wall, it was the perfect time to make modifications and build our cabinet into the wall.
Did you ever hear of the story about this antique cabinet? It’s a great story! It was originally built at the same time as the house. Every previous owner left it for the next. And now it will never leave the house. Pretty sweet, right?
Here’s a before picture of when we had placed our precious antique cabinet in its new forever home.
Now we are able to use this and the other built-in cabinet as dressers, for additional storage, and our spring home decor.
Wall Mounted Light Fixtures
Because of the limited amount of space for furniture, we have very little room for home décor, including light fixtures. A wall-mounted bedside lamp is always a great idea when you have limited space. It gets rid of that cluttered feel and gives you more room for displaying those pretty spring flowers.
A Faux Fireplace Mantel Surround
Speaking of room to display seasonal home décor, we didn’t have much. So we came up with the idea to build a faux mantel for just that purpose. It was narrow enough to not interfere with the walking path and made such a great focal point for the bedroom.
This is my favorite way to display seasonal home decor. I always start with a mirror or three! And then I add vintage books, flowers, and trinkets. Our spring decor includes daffodils, Faux flower blossoms, and a potted ivy. And I always love using vintage containers and vessels no matter what time of year it is.
Are you ready to hear my next favorite way to add some storage space to a small bedroom? A window seat basically serves two purposes, a place to sit of course, and a much-needed storage option.
So let’s address the elephant in the room. My bedroom is seriously quirky. It’s not set up practically and because we wanted to have a bathroom off the bedroom, we had to have our bed on this wall, with the window and the window seat. So the bed has to sit partially in front of the window, but you get the idea, right? So just try to look past it if you can.
Bring on the Bunnies
No spring bedroom is complete without a bunny. Am I right?
