My Master Bedroom To Date


News Flash:

Please visit Kim over at Savvy Southern Style TOMORROW for my guest post on My Favorite Room.  It’ll be a blast.  See you there!

Now on with today’s post….

As most of you know, I’ve been working on my master bedroom for quite some time now.

It’s gone from this…(holy smoly, did I do this?)


To this…(really?)




And this…(what was I thinking?)








To this…






And this…








Are you seasick yet?

Drum roll please…





Shew! Finally!

Sherwin Williams Wool Skein on the walls.




Ethan Allen’s new upholstered bed and embroidered shams from Horchow.








Entrance to the room…



Master foyer…

Love the custom shield shade lamp…it’s mate is in the sunroom.




Detail on the Italian reverse painted antique mirror.




Built-in bookshelf?

Are you sure?




How about a hidden room…leading to luggage storage and a spiral staircase down to my husband’s office!




Limestone mantle…notice the shell motif.




I’m crazy about these vases.  Look at the sweater detail!  These came from Target for a song.  I have been wanting the Arteriors version which were big $$$ until I came across these!




This is a Barclay Butera chair that was upholstered in linen from France.




A rare bronze Eiffel Tower on marble base and set of first edition Napoleon Hill books (a gift to my husband for Christmas) sit next to a Napoleon III glove box that I found at the Paris Flea Market.




I decided on the Alexa Hampton lattice swing arm wall sconces in dark nickel.  The pattern mimics the “X” in the nightstand.




You can’t see it, but the small votives are pewter and have our initial “H” engraved on them.




Ahhhh…my coveted French armoire…but I digress…read about it HERE.




A small oil on board French painting (read about it HERE) and an antique sifter of some sort that I decided to hang on the wall.

I like that it adds dimension, texture, and depth.




Custom toile padded cornices that I used at a previous home and decided to keep in storage.  I’m sure glad I did!




And there you have it.  A new and improved master bedroom.

Now to rest.

Happy Decorating,


P.S. Remember to visit Kim at Savvy Southern Style tomorrow for my guest post on My Favorite Room.  It’ll be a blast!  See you there.

Hi Kim, I have visited you before but it's been truly far to long.
As for your bedroom the armoir and bed is amazing I would so have it in my room in a heart beat. I love the French flavor to your style, speaking my language.
How was it sleeping in a new room after it was all completed?theres nothing like that new feeling and drifting off feeling as if you want to ask yourself where am I :)

Thank you for gracing your beauty over at my place and taking the time to add beauty to my simple setting.
I am going to go back and read more postings getting to know you much better.

Have a beautiful weekend.

Oh, Kim I forgot to say that I still love the second bed, not talking about the first sleigh bed but the second one you designed with. I totally hear you on what was I thinking. I have been there, but if I had that second bed of your it would be in my studio getting a good stripping down, a good sanding, then priming it for a true white paint job distressed and washed with French grey giving it that French Brocante feel to it.
Kim what are you going to do with the bed, are you placing it in another room? You could truly breath new life into it by giving it a good paint finish, no fear with painting it, there are no mistakes in creating a French feel its a timeless design always holding its own in the history of designs.

I take these very beds that customers have tired of, saving them in the tiring purchase of a new bed to give it a whole new look and feel.

Have an inspiring weekend....get busy painting.

Love seeing the transformation, Kim. I would kill to have a fireplace in the bedroom! It's all lovely. Now you can breathe a sigh of relief and enjoy!

Love your new look but to tell you the truth, I love the sleigh bed the best! Just my personal taste. It's interesting how our tastes evolve over the years. I'd love to have a huge bedroom like yours. Mine is so small that I can't appreciate the beauty of the my sleigh bed (now you know why I preferred the first bed) I remember those days of having a boudoir with lots of red! Oh to have a secret door!

Jaybird said...

But wait...wait...I loved the red!! You can just pack it alllllll up and send it to me :^)
Anyway you do the room is beautiful though!
I'm just a red fan!
