Here we are. Almost two months after my last master bedroom update we have the big reveal!!What took so long? Curtains. Darned curtains. Solid or Patterned? 84 inches or 96 inches? Tabbed or Grommet? So many choices! But here we are. Over the hurdle. Woo hoo!
As a refresher, this is what we started with (this pic is from the real estate listing). Lot’s of blue going on here.
As I mentioned in my first post of the master bedroom, we decided to go with a white and grey theme with pops of teal. To start the process, we painted all the trim white.
For the color, we choose Going Grey by Olympic, which we thought was deep enough to give us a cozy feel without making it feel cave-like. In some light it almost has a blue tone to it, so it is definitely has a cool hues. I LOVE it.
Dresser is Hemnes from Ikea. Artwork is by Jessica Durrant’s Etsy shop, candles and candle holders from Target.
Duvet cover and shams are from West Elm and the duvet (given to us as a wedding present from my Grandma) is from The Company Store. Body pillow and cover from Bed, Bath and Beyond. Bedside lamps are from Target. The sequined pillow is from Homegoods and we received the pillow on the left at our wedding from Steve’s Aunt. Aw…
Steve’s Aunt also gave us a framed wedding invitation, which is in our Teal and White color scheme. Perfect!!
The ever famous curtains are from West Elm. They are fabulous. We ended up with plain white cotton canvas panels with hidden tabs. In this picture you can also barely make our Flair’s little bed next to the long mirror.
The little ceramic owl and lamp on the dresser are from Homegoods. Yes… we are TV in the bedroom kind of people. Nothing better then falling asleep to the sounds of Friends or Harry Potter :)
The little blue vases that are scattered throughout the room are from our wedding. They were used as center pieces during the cocktail hour. They are the perfect color…
All in all, we LOVE our new (and finished) bedroom! It is super relaxing and tranquil. The white trim and light grey walls brighten up the room, which is important since the natural light isn’t the best. The teal gives little pops of color here and there to make it fun and modern. What is awesome about using pops of color against the uber neutral background, rather then globbs of color, is that I can change the entire look and feel of the room by changing the accessories. I am not tied to teal forever.
The only thing that is left is a little somethin’-somethin’ for above the bed. Eventually, I would like to put a little reading chair in the corner near the window. Steve has also mentioned that he would like to add some crown molding. I am sure that will happen down the line. :)
What do you think? What color combination are you diggin’ right now? Are you close to finishing up any drawn-out projects?
