My Master Bedroom Reveal








So all those fabulous photos I took with the rented wide angle lens, well, these are not them. They are forever lost in my computer, but I wanted to share our room redo before this new addition arrives and makes my room less pretty. Anyway, this room redo was done on a major budget simply because I just redid my room early this year, but soon found out I am not funky and needed to go back to the basics. So that is exactly what I did...

-The corbels are from Home Goods. I loved the raw wood feel.
-The botanical prints were found at a local shop Leaf & Petal.
-The dresser and side dresser were painted my own gray color that Benjamin Moore helped me with.
-Faux roman shade I made with simple burlap and lining.
-The lamps I bought at an estate sale and painted black. The lampshades are from Target and have a fabulous gold lining.
-I made the headboard. Directions on how found here.
-The pillow shams were also bought at a local shop, Three Sheets. I loved the gray/brown color and they are what the whole room is based around.
-Leather chair was a Home Goods find and it's brother lives in the family room.
-the sconces that still need candles are from Tracery Interiors shop in Rosemary Beach.
-The curtains were found at Hobby Lobby of all places and I added black out lining.
-The table was painted white and is used for sewing so that is why it's basically empty.
-The desk chair is from CB2 and is perfect for sewing.
-The final chair was from Home Goods ages ago and has lived in almost every room in our house. My husband thinks it's a great place to throw his clothes.

So now you have it. Sorry for the not so great pictures, but I promised to share so I am. As you all should know the room is not 100%, but it's getting there. I am on the search for the perfect fabric to recover a bench that sits at the end of the bed if you all have any ideas I would love to hear them.

Paula- it looks so peaceful. I have been waiting for the inspiration to make window treatments for my guest room and those burlap romans are it! Thanks for sharing your pretty casa.

Kathy Posey said...

You are amazing. My favorite for SURE is Curious George on the TV...how romantic. ;)

nkp said...

Bravo! Standing ovation (you just can't see it). This newest incarnation looks fabulous!

Joyce said...

Simply beautiful!! I love the new look and the before too. We are in the process in the next few months redoing our masterbath and bedroom in whites, creams and tan. Thanks for sharing.xo

What a beautiful, open space! I love how you kept things simple but very very classy and personal!

Haven and Home said...

Looks great Paula! I laughed when I saw the corbels since that was the night I saw you in Home Goods. Well done!!!!!

Melissa said...

I agree that non-funky bedrooms are more relaxing (says she who used to have leopard print in hers!) It looks beautiful-- when you feel up to it, I'd love to see a shot of the bed from the foot, maybe with the lamps off b/c I really want to see those pillow shams!

I'm instantly reminded of a perfectly-made cafe au lait - you did a wonderful job - it looks as soothing and perfect as a master should!

Dayka said...

Love your nightstand!

nkp said...

Oh and I almost forgot, will the allmodern pillow reside in this plush space? It would be the icing on the cake on your bed, or the leather chair, or the beautiful french number...I hope you'll take a snapshot and share!

Char said...

Estelle said...

Beautiful. So classic and warm. I love it. Thanks for sharing all the details. I loved your old room and I totally appreciate that you could admit to not being "funky". We've all been there with some form of "buyers regret".

My name is Erin. said...

I think this re-do seems much more your style, if I can even claim to know your style after reading your blog for less than a year now. It just seems to "fit" you better. I love it, btw. Especially the headboard. I've been talking about doing this FOREVER! You're my inspiration... I'm doing it soon. And by soon, I mean sometime within 2010. : ) Thanks for sharing!

Truly Smitten said...

So very lovely!! love the style. Happy Holidays to you and your family!

This looks great, Paula! The palette is so soft and soothing and just that pop or yellow makes it really fun.

Blair said...

Paula, you did an amazing job! It definitley does not look like it was done on a budget at all--will you come out to Wyoming and help me redo mine:)

Porchlight Interiors said...

Deliciously Organized said...

Wow! It looks really good!

Jennifer said...

so very pretty, Paula! looks like a great retreat. and I love that there are cartoons on the TV ... now that is "real!"

at least that's a pretty sleek-looking bike :) we have a big blue bike hanging from the ceiling in the office. luckily (I guess?) our rooms are too small to leave it on the trainer all the time!

Jessica Hills said...

I love the calming colors and the dresser! It all looks so good!

megan said...

Love your bedroom! Where did you purchase the leaning mirror?? I love that idea.

paula said...

thanks! the mirror was fond here in Irondale, Alabama at Southeastern Salvage. It's very hit or miss, but always worth a look.
