The big thing that I wanted to do in our bedroom was to make it feel like a hotel (on a BUDGET). As you can see, I had a blank canvas so to speak (that's putting it really nicely).
We have a huge palladian window (the kind that looks like a half circle on top), and I didn't want those paper-fan-looking blinds. So my MIL made floor-to-ceiling white drapes. They still let light in but I think that's what makes the biggest impact in the room--I love it! I knew I wanted a pewter/grayish room. The paint color is "Pewter Works" from Farrell-Calhoun. The white/black/gray thing just sort of happened. I always change my decorating, so I know it will all change over time!
I got the star mirror and the lamps from Pier 1. Yes, my side tables are red. I'm not a red person really, but they were such a good deal and I just told myself I'd paint them or something. I obviously haven't gotten around to it. I don't know what the future of these tables are...but they won't stay red. Everyone says to keep them the way they are, but I just don't like red when it comes to decorating---just my personal weird thing!
The bedding is from Bed, Bath, and Beyond....I can't remember the brand! My MIL found this cute fabric and made the bolster pillow. Fun fact: the silvery trim that she used was from my bridesmaids' dresses :o) Speaking of my wedding, here's our invitation framed:
Our office was converted into sweet baby Evy's room, so we had to move the computer into our room. It's convenient, so I can't complain, but what an eyesore. Well, definitely not the desktop wallpaper :o) Oh, notice my daily Sonic Cherry Limeade. I had to include it because one is always there.
And here's our TV. We don't use it very often. I'm sure we will when Kurt is actually home and we can get into bed at the same time to watch something. Maybe someday. The dresser has been in my family for a long time. It's from the 50s-60s I think? I painted it to go in our room, and it's honestly the worst paint job in the history of mankind. Seriously, I did a terrible job. I don't think I prepped it enough, and I spray-painted it...and I didn't use the right finish of paint, so now I can't dust it. It just collects dust but I can't wipe it off. Please learn from my mistake. When we move I am SO re-painting it.
This is an awesome antique corner chair that I got from my great-grandmother after she passed away. My MIL made a matching mini bolster pillow, and I got the seat cover at Marshall's (the others are on our dining room chairs). This is the corner right as you walk in the door of our room.
Another view of the corner. Yes, that's me in the picture. My photographer just printed this out and said he was going to use it for advertising, but then chose another picture of mine or something to that effect. So I have this picture of myself, and I'm NOT hanging it in the main, public part of the house. That's just so narcissistic. I couldn't look at myself all day. I have wedding pictures of us in the house, but not by ourselves. That's just weird. Eventually this will go in Kurt's office or something. The good thing is that this isn't hanging in an obvious place, because I would feel so vain and ridiculous.
I do need to thank my photographer...I'm sure I'll be glad to have this one day!
Thank you for stopping by! I'd love to meet you, so leave a comment and introduce yourself :o) Have a wonderful day!
By the way...here are my two favorite people in the master bedroom. These were taken 2-3 months ago, but why not? I adore them :o)
