So, you have seen the bed and my quick tutorial about linens. Now for a cruise around the rest of our master bedroom . As my “almost 4 year old” would say, “blue is my favorite color” after every time he spots or talks about anything blue. I too LOVE blue as it is my “favorite color” but I took this to another level by adding many colors within the blue spectrum into our master bedroom.
This blue hue spectrum scale was easy to achieve with dynamic abstract paintings on opposite walls that incorporated many of these tones. I have this trio of three on one wall. The three pieces of art in a row work together nicely and the accessories anchor the colors used in the painting.
And you may have seen the post on the other art piece in the room.
I scored the main furniture pieces in our Master Bedroom off Craigslist of course – which are Bassett (score!) and my magical husband took these pieces to like-new shape. Oh how I wish I had the before and after pics of these puppies but kudos to the mister for making these spectacular. I scored all four pieces for $125 total! I know, crazy right?! But again, you should have seen them before…the couple we bought these from had used the pieces since they were married but since Bassett does make quality items they were in great condition. I had high hopes into making these true campaign pieces but decided to keep with the simple brass hardware pulls.
I have always been a sucker for greek key and I scored these two lamps at Pier One on clearance.
The lighting in the room had to go – again, I won the battle of getting rid of the ceiling fan (yippie!) So I found this pretty lady (yes, I have a love affair for great lighting so I can call it a lady). She came from Wilson Lighting here in KC – and waited it out until it went on clearance. That was torture waiting but it was well worth the wait to get nearly $200 off listed price.
I will prove my obsession with light fixtures at a later date. Next, with funky-hard-to-figure-out windows that cause havoc in the corner I decided to go with a simple ivory roman shade. These create a great filter for light to come through and I found these at JCPenny Home. If you want simple and basic, JCPenny has some great options for window treatments. I originally searched for a great detail trim to add to the top flap of these to look more custom but I haven’t yet spotted exactly what I am looking for – the hunt continues.
And more accessories spotted around the room – which are definitely heirloom type items – Missoni throw pillow and Cross blessed by the Pope from the Vatican. Both items made in Italy – perhaps the latter has much more meaning but I do love me some Missoni. Each member of my immediate family has the same exact cross in their house – it was their Christmas gift years back after my tour around Italy.
There you have it – you won’t find a television anytime soon in our bedroom – the mister and I don’t believe in it and I won’t fool you, the bedside books rarely see my eyes but that allows for the master bedroom to be a place for sleep and comfort. In our instance, a major case of the blues…but in a good way.
