Kelly's Home Tour---Master Bedroom Edition

Welcome to our bedroom!

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)

annalee said...

i'm in love with your bedding! it is just gorgeous. as is your whole room!
and i'm totally with you on the solo wedding shot... mine is hanging in our bedroom. when we first moved into this house it was on the wall opposite of where it is now. it took me a few weeks to realize anyone that came over could see it from the den. i was mortified and moved it immediately, haha.

Happiness Is... said...

You will be so happy to have that picture one day...if you can believe this, we don't have one picture of me alone on our wedding day. Do not ask me how this happened (it didn't dawn on me and needless to say I don't think it's the bride's job to remember what pictures get taken).

The Hollywood Memoirs said...

My bed looks almost identical to yours! Dark walnut, four poster master bed with a white duvet. I absolutely love it! Very calm and inviting.

Pam said...

I love everything about your room. The curtains, the bed, the star, the pic, the sweet baby...oh and the chair. Sounds like you have a cool MIL.

Tiffany said...

Love your room and love those cheeks!!

Sarah Denley said...

*soothing

Felicia said...

Love the mirror above the bed...beautiful master bedroom

the4morans said...

I love your bedroom....I was just thinking the other day I wish our bedroom felt like a hotel. But, strangely, when there is a TRANSFORMER under your pillow at night....not so much!! Love to read your blog! Your baby is adorable!

MamaVigil said...

I love it - nice job! It is so peaceful - it seems like a great place to end the day!

Emily said...

Very calming room! And I have to say I love the red side tables. They really pop against everything else...but I guess since it IS your room you can do what you want. ;)

Oh, and I like your new look... it's been a little bit since I'd visited. Looks great!

kate said...

Reasons I will be following you...

1) your veil - uhhhhh, I want it. I dressed up as "maria" from Sound of Music for many halloweens and play dates. It reminds me of Maria's veil...a true monarch veil.

2) while I have yet to meet Prince Charming (please pray) I've always planned for Edelweiss to be played as one of my wedding tunes. Love how you used the music.

3) can your baby be any cuter? honestly.

4) so fun! Happy Weekend!

ButterYum said...

love your room... great bed, mirror, and wall of drapes! btw, not a drop of red in my house either... just not a red person!

Angry Julie Monday said...

That bed is great.

and I love the wedding picture. My mom has a 16x20 of me, that she wants to frame..ya I have nowhere to put it...

Jilly said...

I've always heard that a little bit of red adds warmth to any room.

And, I am so going to frame our wedding invitation -- thanks for that idea! :)

Melissa Stover said...

i love white bedding!

Amanda said...

I love your room! Simple and elegant. The white bedding really stands out against the gray walls. Beautiful. And I'm so jealous of your MIL's talent to sew!

Oh...and I would love a change to sqeeze your baby Evy's cheeks!! She is super CUTE!!

pumpkinpatches said...

I think you did an AWESOME job in making your room feel like a hotel! Very calming and chic, I also LOVE the picture of you, I wish I had something like that to give my husband! Thank you for sharing.
