Now that we have a start on the kitchen and main living room, I am focusing my efforts on the master bedroom. When we bought the house in October it looked like this: The hospital green wasn’t working for us. And, since this room isn’t as bright as the rest of the house, we wanted it to be brighter. So, as of today it looks like this:
Once the rest of the layers come in, it’s going to make sense. Until then, here’s a little moodboard I put together to keep Gilby from looking at me sideways when I tell him I want to introduce purple into our bedroom:
I love the purple croc chest. I don’t know if I’m going to bring in the texture, but the combination of grey and eggplant is precisely what I’m going for on this chest
Also in the plans is to paint the trim and doors. One by one we are in the process of replacing all of the slab doors with these beautiful Craftsman doors. Oddly enough there was no door to the master bathroom, so this particular one was a priority. We’re trying something different for the trim color so check back and we’ll see if we like it. We also plan to add backplates to the knobs.
Judging from the holes in the coverlet, would you agree it’s time to redo our bedroom? It’s definitely been a while. The plans for this room aren’t lofty, but I do expect it will take some time. Layering folks, that’s what it’s all about.
refinish my nightstand
paint/finish chest of drawers
paint/finish gateleg table
reupholster slipper chair
photography as art
off-white comforter or coverlet
lamp(s)–starting with my nightstand
bench for foot of bed
3 euro pillows (already have the shams)
silver frames with white mattes for photography
I’m going to start with some of the furniture pieces, mostly because I have everything I need to tackle them and that means it’s free. I’ve been searching for the perfect comforter and still haven’t find it, but will continue to be on the lookout. Find me on facebook to see more updates as we progress. I’ll be back with the reveal later on.
