Black, White & Gold Master Bedroom Reveal

A gorgeous black, white and gold glam master bedroom makeover.

The day is FINALLY here, and I couldn’t be more proud of how our master bedroom transformed during these six weeks of the One Room Challenge. This is my first time participating in this crazy fun challenge, and it is stressful! I planned ahead, worked every weekend on the space, and IT. IS. DONE. I’ve said a lot about the space in the five posts leading up to this moment, so this reveal may be a bit light on words, but heavy on photos. All the sources to items are linked at the bottom. Thanks for your support, pin anything you like from my space, and enjoy!

Let’s back it up to where we started six weeks ago.

And here we are today.

What. A. Transformation.

Pee Wee is thrilled you’re here, by the way. He gets super pumped when he sees the fancy camera come out and he legit poses. I love this little guy so much.

TV Gallery Wall

When you first walk in to the room, you’re immediately greeted by this gorgeous IKEA Besta TV stand. You can also see the corner area, which we’ll delve into in a moment.

The IKEA Besta stand is no frills, so I fancied up the doors with the Khloe O’verlays kit (use code Monicawantsit to save 15% off at

I knew I wanted something around the TV, and I’ve been obsessing over the Flora print from Jenny’s Print Shop, so I bought it and partnered up with Nations Photo Lab to print it on 20×30 metal stand-off prints. I couldn’t leave well enough alone, so I sliced the photo in half in Photoshop to create a diptych. You can see tons more photos of these before I installed them here.

I kept the styling simple and colorful.

To me, it is sheer perfection. The O’verlays, the Flora prints…it’s all SO BEAUTIFUL.

And the stand-offs came in silver, but some spray paint fixed that up. The metal prints are beyond gorgeous- I can’t express how saturated the colors are and how sharp the details are.

Corner Gallery Wall & Curtains/Hardware

While I would say I am far from a maximalist, I didn’t want the room to feel sparse, so I created a cozy reading nook near the windows.

Initially I planned for just the gorgeous green chair from DHP Furniture/The Novogratz, but it felt too bare so at literally the last possible moment, I added this gallery wall. It’s eclectic, yet balanced and symmetrical.

The prints in the gold bamboo frames were a lucky estate sale find ($14 for both!) The black and white NYC photos are from my trip there in 2015, and the rest are all Minted art (nude sketch, horse one, horse two, and green botanicals).

This olive green vintage tufted chair adds a pop of color to a silver and gold corner gallery wall and reading nook in this stunning master bedroom.

The aged brass pharmacy lamp from Lamps Plus really adds a warmth to the space, plus I have reading light for evening reading. Flanking this whole area are some super affordable pleated curtains I snagged at HomeGoods (these are similar!) and I used hem tape to iron-on some black grosgrain ribbon.

The curtains hang on a lucite rod with brass curtain rings (these are soooo affordable). I am smitten with the lucite curtain rod and am thrilled to finally have one! Worth the splurge for sure.

Accent Wall, Rug & Nightstands

Our master bedroom was in dire need of some oomph, and I didn’t want to paint…so removable wallpaper seemed like a good choice. We chose Bird Watching from the Cynthia Rowley Collection by Tempaper and I wrote a detailed tutorial about how to install it.

Dark nightstands add drama to a black and gold wallpaper accent wall. The mirror and crystal lamp brighten the space.

To anchor the space, I chose a simple gray and white Greek key rug from Plush Rugs. The rug definitely lives up to its name…it is plush and by far the nicest rug we own now!

A JAW DROPPING master bedroom makeover with a black, white and gold color palette. Love how glam and chic the space is- so unique!

I also added three mirrors total to the room- one above each nightstand and a leaning one.

I adore the Wais mirrors by Holly and Martin and really, really regret I didn’t come across them during our home building process. They’d be lovely in our gold and white master bathroom. But in our master bedroom, they really add sparkle and light to the dark nightstands against the dark accent wall.

A big tufted headboard adorns this master bedroom makeover- I love the mirrors over the nighstands and all the gold accents.

The Lawson leaning floor mirror, also by Holly & Martin, is a more industrial, masculine vibe that I integrated at the request of my husband. The rounded edges and leather handle at the top, plus the narrow profile, add a unique touch to the space. I also FINALLY have a full-length mirror! This is legit my first one ever.

I debated on replacing our nightstands, but for budgets sake I opted to keep them. I did swap the plain silver knobs for crystal ones, and they look fabulous. The double-shade brass and crystal table lamp from Lamps Plus is a sleek addition, too. I love how the rectangular shade takes up less “space” then it’s round counterpart, plus it has that boutique hotel vibe I was striving for.

Nightstand styling ideas that are simple, glam and girly. I love how the lamp and artwork play off one another.

I kept my nightstand styling to the essentials- some high quality SCENTED faux roses (they look, smell and feel just like the real thing), some aromatherapy lotion, perfume, a candle and a gold and white tray. Behind all of that is a gorgeous black and white framed print from Minted of some simple flowers.

My husband told me to keep his nightstand minimal and green, and he loves what I came up with. He also got a Minted art print, but I honored his request and got him a green abstract piece. The faux plant also adds some life without being too girly.

Decor and styling ideas for a male nightstand. Love how simple and colorful this is.

And then there’s the bed and bedding. We got these uber soft supima cotton pinstripe sheets, a black border duvet cover, and I got a new black velvet euro sham to coordinate with the two striped ones I had already. The floral pillows were a lucky find here, and the velvet leopard lumbar pillow is simply my fave pillow ever.

The bench at the foot of the bed is also new, and I love how wide it is, the metal base and the extra storage the drawers offer. The linen fabric is also super soft and helps my senior dog Pee Wee hop on and off the bed with ease.

And speaking of which… Pee Wee is here to thank you for stopping by his new bedroom. I mean, he’s truly the master of our house.

This room was truly a labor of love, and I can’t thank my brand partners enough for wanting to collaborate with me! I loved each and everyone of the products I got to incorporate in the space.
