As you know, we have been under a bit of dust over here in our nest. We have refinished our wood floors, built a patio with landscaping, replaced all our carpeting, designing a theater room, painted and added wood flooring to the master. I’m sure I’ve inhaled way too many fumes, but, alas, so worth it.
I am not finished re-designing our master, but it is coming along nicely. I changed the color to Ben Moore’s White Dove – which I would recommend if you are looking for a lovely, soft white. In our white bedroom it actually reads as a slight aged while, like a linen dress. In the process I took everything off the walls. I love doing this because it gives me the opportunity to look at my space with fresh eyes.
I have old shutters that I found at Luckett’s years ago that I have used for a screen. They are grey and remind me of French Linen Chalk paint. I decided to move these behind my chaise, add an area rug, a new chandelier. I also had to paint a few pieces and am expecting some mirrored nightstands this week. My favorite new detail is the pressed floral prints that I bought to cover an entire wall. I promise to reveal all soon – and in color 🙂
I thought I would just give you a few pix to let you in on what what happening.
Architectural elements always work as an interesting contrast to new items, like this mercury glass lamp.
I like to buy 2 of everything when it comes to display items like these monkeys. It adds symmetry.
Here is a look at the area rug that I chose. In love.
I have two dress forms and considered sells this one, but for now she’s staying.
You know how I feel about old doors.
Resin bust. Resin antlers. Reid, of course, can’t help but be a ham.
This is the light fixture I chose. I will give you the secret to my source when I post final pix.
A little reminder of vacation hanging on my armoire.
DH hates hanging multiple pix, but he is so good at measuring!
I had to buy this duck egg blue journal for my nightstand.
The master is probably my favorite room in my house and deserves lots of attention.
