So a good friend of mine is a successful Airbnb Superhost/property manager/entrepreneur. She has several properties of her own and also manages Airbnb properties for other people. A blog interviewed her last year for renting out her Airbnb’s backyard to campers. WHAT. If that’s not entrepreneurship and a creative business mind, I don’t know what is. She’s an inspiration for sure. You can find that interview here.
You can find this particular Airbnb here. If you’re ever looking for somewhere to stay in Colorado, check it out!
Anyway, she asked me to help her with a quick master bedroom makeover. Of course I said, “HECK YES”. She was on a time crunch and had a budget in mind.
I quickly came up with a design board to make sure we didn’t spend any unnecessary money and that knew where we were headed.
*I’ll be writing a post really soon here explaining my favorite way to make a design board. I’ll make sure to link it here when I get it done.*
If you’ve learned anything about me thus far, it’s that I love a steal. I will go out of my way to get a bargain, so much so, that it probably isn’t so much of a bargain anymore. (ie. going to 5 stores to save $2…… you get the point)
For this project, everything is budget friendly, but I won’t make you drive 12 places to find it all.
Follow these 5 quick, budget friendly tips for a simple master bedroom refresh, in order to help you love your space again.
I’ve heard it said so many times that the easiest way to change the entire feel of a room is to paint it. Here are a few of my favorite “greige” paint colors for interiors.
One way to really lighten up a space and to make it feel so fresh is to replace the bedding. I love to go with white bedding, and add accent colors in throw pillows, blanket or quilt.
Here is a simple white duvet at a really affordable price. It also has great reviews. Gotta love Amazon.
Here is an insert for the duvet.
Hands down, my favorite curtains ever are from IKEA. You can find them here. They are 98″, which is so so great. There’s not much worse (in my opinion) than curtains that are too short. These curtains are really wide and are a beautiful cotton fabric that almost has a linen look. I have them in almost every room of my house, if that tells you anything as to how much I love them. Anyway, go buy them. 😉
By either painting your existing furniture or updating your headboard, you can make a huge impact.
Here are 2 affordable headboards to help change up your space (they’re both super budget friendly!)
If I had to choose 3 accessories to make the most impact, I would most definitely choose a rug, art and throw pillows.
Lucky for you, I have a few affordable options for you. RugsUSA is, hands down, my favorite place to get rugs. The are constantly having a sale, which makes them extra affordable. Who doesn’t love that.

Below are some pillow options for your bed. 2 Euro pillows (for a full/queen) or 3 Euro’s (for a king) help to make the bed feel more luxurious. Add 1-3 throw pillows in addition to those and you’re golden!
Here are a few great options from Amazon. Click the picture to see the listing.
Below are a few great lamp options. I LOVE wall sconces above a pair of nightstands, but it can get tricky if you don’t want to hard wire anything. These 3 sconce options simply plug into an outlet, which makes it so doable and affordable! Click the picture to see the listing.
Here are a few art pieces that are so beautiful, but also so affordable it’s not even funny. All you have to do is get frames for them. Click the picture to see the listing.
I hope you’re feeling inspired to give your bedroom a quick refresh, no matter what your budget looks like. Honestly, most of the time I spend next to nothing on my house projects. It’s just about getting creative and creating a space that you love.
As always, thanks for reading!
