{Master Bedroom Reveal}

Monday, November 15, 2010
Wow, it's been a long journey. I started designing this room in January, and it's now November ... Finally it's done! Living in an older home, you have to deal with small rooms and small closets ... it's something you have to overcome. I have tried my hardest to make the room feel larger, while upgrading to a king bed, instead of our queen. It's also important to know that, as always, I am on a design budget.

Here is our before bedroom ...




Yep ... those are olive green walls with a beautiful red color scheme to go with it. Absolutely stunning ... don't you think? BLAH!

And ....

Drum roll Please ...

Here is our Master Bedroom AFTER ...








It's been a VERY long road, sleeping on just a mattress on the floor for 8 months, trial and error, window coverings ... but it's finally over ... and it's my sanctuary. I literally feel at peace when I am in the room, and I couldn't be more happy how the room turned out!

In the next few days, I'll pick apart the room and tell you about what worked, what didn't, where I found certain pieces, and what I used as inspiration!

Hope everyone had a WONDERFUL weekend!
