Welcome to our Master Bedroom…the room that I’ve kept hidden since the beginning of my blog! I finally had to spend some time refreshing things because of an inquiry from a photography firm. I haven’t heard a thing back from them and my hopes are not high. The one good thing that came out of it though is that I spruced up the room a bit. It was neglected and really needed an update. I didn’t take before pictures because the changes aren’t massive. Just imagine this room a little less put together and very sad!
I didn’t have time to paint and probably wouldn’t have tackled that anyway. So I worked with what I had. The room is dark so lightening things up was my main goal. Instead of the duvet covering the bed, I added a quilted coverlet and put the duvet cover at the end.
Below is the view from the end of the bed. There is just enough space to walk between the bed and the wall. No room for a lovely bench…much to my disappointment! I shopped my house for more wall decor and found the red transferware plates in my china cabinet. I had completely forgotten about them so I was happy to bring them out of hiding.
My husband and I bought the cherry furniture right after we were married. I would imagine it’s considered vintage now…or very close! Here’s a shot of the window…all the windows on our second floor are the same size. Small. I made the valance from Pottery Barn Red Ticking and a shower curtain I bought to match the bedding.
In a few hours I managed to make our very tired and neglected master bedroom blog-worthy. Anyone can do this. You don’t have to have a grand, gigantic space to make it cozy and fresh. Shop your house for accessories. Just moving something from one room to another can make it look totally different.
I still have a few rooms that you haven’t seen…not sure you ever will but I’ve learned to never say never. I never thought I’d show our master bedroom and here I am. I would list the sources but I’m doubtful anything is still available. The red bedding is from Pottery Barn and the quilt is from JCPenney. The je t’aime pillow cover is available in my Etsy shop. Everything else is vintage or a family heirloom.
Here’s a little “taste” of my next apple recipe. It’s Apple Slab Pie and I used one of the red transferware plates I found for the photos.
See you then!
