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
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
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.
I am happy I added all the live plants though.
They help clean the air and they go with my slightly tropical feel.
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!
Today I am linking my post to the following parties:
