This post has honestly been a long time coming! And the reason for that is the foundational mission of Beyond the Clock which is to style with time. I have had a vision for our master bedroom for probably almost 3 years. It took savings and slowly moving things around, upgrading furniture pieces and styling with the perfect details that I gathered throughout the years.
I know a lot of you followed along the way as I put these together and now is the big reveal of the full master bedroom transformation!
The thing is, as much as we would all love to click our heels together and transform a room instantly, one of the best things about styling a room is seeing how things come together. It helps both on a budget perspective, but also as an organic way for things to fit together and evolve as your day to day changes as well.
When I first began getting inspiration for the room, we had an office. Shortly into starting the room, we changed that into a guest room and had to find a place for some of the office furniture. With a bit of rearranging, we brought the bookshelf into our room since we don’t really watch TV there and then moved the TV stand to the living room. It ended up being a great way to refresh all 3 rooms and make good use of the space for how we were using it.
So here is the big reveal, all items and DIY upgraded projects linked. My curtains and rug are family heirlooms but I linked similar ones for you guys.

I have a bit of a love hate relationship with mirrors. There are times where they can totally make a room by bringing in more light, making a room bigger, or adding a unique detail with a frame or hanging. Then there are other times, mostly in older homes or small spaces, where people go mirror overboard and make the feature tacky rather than classy. You know what I’m talking about, those full mirror walls that make a living room look more like a dance studio. Thank goodness, mirror details have come a long way. Here are some of my favorite ways to use mirrors in your home or office
1. Leather hanging round mirror
This modern look is perfect in a bathroom or entryway to add a bit of character with the rounded shape. It's also a less expensive way to make the feature bigger by having the hanging materials be a part of the masterpiece.
2. Triple Horizontal Catch-all
Whether you place these pieces in an entryway above a "catch=all" table as I like to call it or in a dining room above a side-board. These triple combo mirrors are statement pieces that will give your room both art and depth. They can also be really affordable using inexpensive behind the door mirrors for this lux stacked mirror look.
3. Antique Arched Mirrros
I love these pieces to bring some vintage details into your home while still keeping things modern and fresh. The are also great accents to a farmhouse style. My favorite place to use mirrors like these is behind nightstands in a bedroom or picking up two to flank a TV or feature in the living room.
4. Hallway or Office Whiteboard
Traditional whiteboards can really make a place look more like a classroom than a home, but they are SO functional. This is a great blend to keep your space looking fresh and modern while allowing you a place to write your family's menu and to-do list. It's also great in commercial spaces like cafe's and office lunch rooms. Almost all mirrors work for this use, I picked mine up at home goods. Then stock up on some dry-erase pens and you will be good to go.
5. Giant Leaning Floor Mirrors
Ever wonder how bloggers get such good mirror selfies... these are the answers. Oversized floor mirrors are great for a bedroom or near a garage door to get a final look on your way out the door.
6. Glass Trays
Glass trays are a my favorite way to glam up a space. I like it best for a guest room or bathroom to display little trinkets for your guests. It's also the perfect add to a coffee table.
Can't wait to hear about your favorite ways to use mirrors. I'd love to see how you styled it. #beyondtheclock when you post to instagram so we can see your creative uses!
