…master bedroom interiors

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.

    I really love the idea of your own TV station, BEBN! Being able to see how you work your magic is really helpful. Regarding background music, it was difficult to hear, and then I remembered a PBS show about a woodworker who worked outside, and the only thing we could hear, besides him, were the birds and locusts. Which I loved. Fantastic idea, Christen! Hope you keep it up. Hugs.
