In the Bedroom

Did you really think I would go rated 'R' on my little blog for Valentine's Day week? No, my master bedroom re.do is about finished though. Also you can go here for before pics. Of course there are a few things I would like to add, but not until after the shopping hiatus. I would like a rug to cover the not so pretty carpet and a fabulous chair that carries more weight for in front of the desk. I am sure I will continue to change a few things around, but for now I am happy with the result.

Say hello to my new room.

I recovered this settee that I had since college and painted the legs white.

I painted the dressers gray. The crowd in the background is a video team setting up a shoot for the dinner theater I mentioned Tuesday.

This tray was once red, but now is teal. The iron piece I painted black. I already owned much of what I used for the room since it was during the shopping hiatus. This made me get extra creative.

All the toys are now out of the room, but we did keep the beanbags in so the kiddos can have movie time.

This picture is horribly dark, sorry. That ridiculously huge mirror used to be opposite the bed. Don't get any funny ideas though. I must say I do like it over here much more. The desk a friend gave me. It makes a perfect spot to sew.

This is my end table.
This is his end table.

In the details: paint- snowbound white by Sherwin Williams, wallpaper- easy change also by Sherwin Williams, lamps- Home Goods, end tables- antique shops, duvet- Pottery Barn, toss pillows- Pottery Barn, curtains- Pottery Barn with added fringe from Hancock Fabric, bean bags- Pottery Barn Kids. (so it seems Pottery Barn was having some great sales, my home as a whole is not all Pottery Barn, ha!)

If you want to know more just send me an e.mail or leave me a question in the comment box.

Looks great! I love it - The gray dresser turned out amazing. I love how you've repurposed so many of your things. Isn't it funny that when you tweak them just a bit or move them to a different space they can feel brand new?

You did a fabulous job. I was so happy to finally see this post... I've been waiting for it!

Cupcakes and Cashmere said...

i absolutely adore that mirror!

Joslyn said...

so, so pretty! i especially love the wallpaper behind the bed!

paula said...

I thought it would be easiest to answer some of the questions here. The gray a bought a long time ago as a mis-tint. I fell in love with the color and had Benjamin Moore copy it. I love it because it is a warm gray. The teal I used was Juniper Berry D61-5 by Olympic paints at lowes. As for the wallpaper, it was easier than I thought, but still took a lot of time. Next time I do it though hubby and I will line up the print, oops!

[J] said...

Wow, what a big room you have! I would love to have this much space!! It all looks so great too!

Elements of Style said...

Nice job! I love the wallpaper!

Sarah Klassen said...

What a fresh, yet calm room! There's nothing like waking up in the morning, and checking out your new room...it's such a nice feeling, isn't it? A few of my favorite elements: the 2 completely different side tables, (LOVE!) the over—sized mirror, (such a bonus for outfit-checking) and the tray...though, I must say, the whole room looks so calming and serene, I would love to cuddle up and read a magazine. :)

simplesong said...

amazing! love all the details. you have such a great eye for design.

Angela Vaughn said...

Way to go the room looks fab! If I ever move back I will have to get you to help me decorate, although I think from what you have posted on my blog we'll disagree on color :P. I love the wall paper with the green print lamp shades! I love to see patterns and textures mixed up like that.

rachel said...

I'm envious! Your bedroom looks so relaxing and well-decorated. A perfect recipe for sweet dreams. Good job!
