Wow! It’s been so crazy since moving in our new house, five months ago. It seemed we just got here when it was time to start decorating for fall and now Christmas! In between all of the fall and Christmas projects and plans, I’ve been attempting to get the house furnished and decorated in general. You may remember I mentioned in our , new home tour, that we were pretty much starting from scratch with all new furnishings and decor. A decorators dream but a frugal person’s nightmare! ha!
Our master bedroom was one room I wanted to pay special attention to. I want it to be a true sanctuary for us…and I was so tired of the decor in our old bedroom that I was ready for a fresh new change!
Here’s where we’re at! I decided on a soothing blue, cream and white color palette, creating a calming blue and white master bedroom. Some of these pieces were brought from the old house, you may recognize a few, and worked perfectly for the bedroom.
This beautiful armoire was in our living room in the old house, but is perfect now at the end of the bed to house our TV and as extra storage space.
I had this chair in our living room and then bedroom at the old house, and it works perfectly in our new room tucked in the corner. I repurposed this lamp from our old bedroom but topped it with this pretty gold shade to match the new decor.
I found this large basket at Ross for $19.00! It’s HUGE! I get so tired of our pillows ending up in a pile on the floor, so this makes a nice place to stack them when we don’t make the bed…which I confess is most days. 😉
I found the duvet cover and Euro shams at Pottery Barn on clearance for $99.00 and loved it as much in person as I did online. I paired it with a crisp white matelasse coverlet I found at Tuesday Mornings for $30 and was so lucky to find the matching pillow shams too, for $12 each.
I had two pieces that we brought from the old house, that I thought would make perfect night stands. Now, the OCD in me struggled with having mismatched stands, but on the other hand I love both pieces and think they fit well in this space. What do you think?
Here’s stand one which is a mahogany antique chest that has been in our family for years.
Nightstand two is a large chest of drawers that has a beautiful painted finish. I topped it with an antique tool box to hold my magazines and purchased these two matching hammered gold lamps from Kirklands. I would like to find two matching mirrors to place over each night stand, like I have over the mahogany piece in the picture above. What are your thoughts on what to place over the nightstands?
Above is the view into our master bathroom. I would love to place something under our wedding picture. I was thinking two matching stools or some type of upholstered bench. What would you put there?
I think my favorite find for the master bedroom was my cream tufted upholstered headboard! Would you believe me if I told you I purchased it online from…WalMart!? It was even more gorgeous in person than online. I love it’s linen texture and it is really well made.
I hope you enjoyed my mid-makeover master bedroom reveal! I’d love to hear your thoughts and suggestions on the areas I’m still working on and any ideas you might have for the room! I’ll be showing it all decked out for Christmas so stay tuned!
I’d also like to take a minute and announce the winner of the Libby’s Fruit and Vegetable Baking Pans Giveaway.
