Although it’s not finished, I wanted to share our primary bedroom remodel ideas. I can’t wait to share how I intend to finish this room.
Meanwhile, we have made a lot of progress in this room. If you recall, not too long ago it had purple drywall on all of the rooms! But it’s comfortable and I love the color scheme. I can’t wait to share with you my bedroom remodel ideas.
Sharing Our Primary Bedroom Remodel Ideas
Planning the decor for our primary bedroom at the beach house in Ventura, California, has been a bit of a challenge.
Don’t get me wrong, because I absolutely love our primary bedroom. The highlight by far is the large windows that overlook the ocean. I have always wanted to create a relaxing and inviting space to unwind after a long day of sun, sand, and walking on the beach.
But these windows are huge and everything else in the room pales in comparison.
The room is also not done as I just haven’t had time to finish it.
It needs a lot of artwork and decor and since I am the artist providing all of the artwork, that is the problem. Why? Because I am having a hard time finding time to paint! I cannot wait to get started painting but it just seems like there are a lot more big projects to finish first.

The primary bedroom is located at the front of our house on the second floor. In the photo above, the staircase to the deck is on the right side and the office/5th bedroom is on the left before you enter the primary bedroom.
To enter the bedroom, there are four steps with a banister that matches the two other staircases in the house. The change in elevation was necessary to allow for higher ceilings.
One thing we always need in our home is work/business areas. With six or seven of us working, adding a small desk in many of the rooms is key. This location is perfect for a quick zoom call or just a quiet place to get some computer work done.
As you enter the bedroom down the stairs, you will see the main part of the primary bedroom. The bed is to the left and the swivel chairs are to the right.
I also need to add more bedding and pillows but as you can see, this room is pretty neutral.
The bed is the Sausalito Cane Bed in driftwood and the nightstands are the Sausalito Mini nightstands, also in driftwood, both from Pottery Barn. I absolutely love these adorable bedside lamps. They are available from Lamps Plus and are very affordable (as in less than $50 each!).
I did put one of my favorite Tessan chargers next to every bed in the house and they are so great as it seems I always have a lot of items charging on my bedstand.

There isn’t a lot of furniture in our bedroom, as we wanted to keep it minimal and just enjoy the views. But we do have a Samsung Frame TV with the most gorgeous frame. It’s nice to have somewhere to sneak away to if the boys are watching golf or golf or more golf on the TV in the living area. Hehe.
We are waiting for our blinds and it is a bit odd sleeping in a fish bowl! For now, I turn all of the lights off and climb into bed. It’s pretty funny that I am so self-conscious but the light from outdoors is also a bit distracting.
We did have a big storm earlier in the week and oh my gosh! The winds and rain were unbelievable and I hardly slept. There was so much noise on the 3rd-floor deck (which is directly above our bedroom) and I was sure that things were blowing away. Of course, everything was fine.
Tips for Your Primary Bedroom Remodel
I mentioned that I am still in the process of decorating our primary bedroom. Here are all of the things that I still have to do and there might be a few ideas on this list for you too!
If your remodeling project is almost complete, but you’re still looking for some primary bedroom remodel ideas, I’ve got you covered. Here are some tips and tricks to help you transform your bedroom into a cozy and stylish retreat.
- Add artwork: The right artwork can instantly add color, texture, and personality to any space. Choose pieces that complement the colors and theme of your bedroom, whether it’s a coastal landscape, abstract art, or vintage posters. I need to paint six large abstract paintings for our home and I really need to get started. Fortunately, you can find many great art options online these days. You could also hang a large mirror to reflect the natural light and create the illusion of more space. I am seriously considering doing this in our primary bedroom.
- Layer pillows and throws: Soft pillows and throws in different textures and patterns can make your bed look and feel more comfortable and luxurious. Mix and match colors and fabrics, such as linen, velvet, and cotton, to create a cozy and inviting bed that you can’t wait to crawl into at night. Don’t tell my husband, but I need to add five more pillows to our bed. (Do all men hate extra pillows on a bed?)
- Bring in natural elements: Since our primary bedroom overlooks the ocean, I want to incorporate natural elements into our decor to enhance the beachy vibe. I am considering adding driftwood, seashells, and other coastal-inspired decor items. The only issue I have is there aren’t many pieces of furniture to hold these items. I could also add some plants, such as succulents or ferns, to add a touch of greenery and freshness to our bedroom.
When it’s done, our primary bedroom will be a beautiful and functional space that reflects my personal style and the coastal charm of our Ventura beach house. I intend to keep it simple, elegant, and comfortable, so we can always enjoy the stunning views of the Pacific Ocean from our bedroom window.
