Last night, I came across some old photos of my master bedroom and it got me thinking about what I have done to the room over the years, and what I would like to do to the room in the future.
In case you haven’t been by to visit, this is what my bedroom looks like now:
Here is a shot showing more of the room (before I changed the lampshades.)
But when we moved in from our one bedroom condo about 12 years ago, this is how the room looked:
Yeah, it was looking quite pathetic that year!
The dresser was so tiny and sad looking!
Since then, I have added window treatments:
Although I am already thinking of changing the ticking striped curtains to a blue and white buffalo plaid!
I do love my woven shades though. They are staying.
I replaced my old bed with this British Colonial Bed. This is definitely a keeper!
I think Ethan Allen even calls this the “Island Bed”. How perfect for me!
Not all the furniture is from Ethan Allen, but it flows together pretty well without looking like I tried to match it and failed…well I hope it doesn’t look that way!
.My goal was to keep the bed inviting and casual although the down comforter can look a little sloppy at times!
I like the way the new lampshades stand out against the Linen White walls.
Gotta love Pottery Barn…
I wanted a seating area for this corner, although I wish I went with a slipcovered chair instead.
I don’t know that I will want blue in this room forever. Though, I am happy I added all the live plants. They help clean the air and they go with my slightly tropical feel. With my black thumb, I can’t believe I have kept them alive this long!
I haven’t gotten tired of my shell pillows yet.
Yes – Pottery Barn from a few years ago.
Originally, I wanted a ceiling fan in here because that’s what they usually have in the islands.
Now I kind of want to change it to a lantern of some sort.
Here is the entrance to the master bathroom with the master closets on either side.
I hope you enjoyed the tour!
I still would love to rip out the carpet and put in hard wood floors, get some more (or bigger) artwork and change the bed linens. But I guess I am happy for now…especially when I look back at the old pictures!
