We are on a remodeling roll here at Places In The Home. Between the DIY projects, the oppressive heat that takes no prisoners, and the decorating tweaks over the last month we are in full-on “what can we do next?” mode. The next project to eventually tackle is the master bedroom. Due to difficult circumstances beyond their control my parents now live with us and occupy the master bedroom. Dave the Builder and I insisted and would have it no other way.
A picture shows it all and here it is~the master bedroom in all its pre-overhaul glory. This photo was taken the day before the new carpet was installed last March. The reason I am posting this photo is to demonstrate the space I will be working with when the next phase of the remodel commences. What is not pictured is a very nice master bathroom, dressing area, and walk in closets the length of the sleeping area. We are talking nice square footage to work with- 800 sq. ft. to be exact. I’m going big with the master bedroom remodel ideas.
I am forever working and tweaking the master bedroom accessory board, and may I just add I am in home furnishings heaven! I’m not one to jump into the trend pool too quickly or strictly attach myself to one particular style . If I have a signature style I guess it would be simply classic. Classic styling is the foundation I work from. It is timeless and can be tweaked by adding current accessories. The all important pop of color is obtained through paint, wallcoverings, and/or window treatments.
Gold & silver are consummate favorites of mine. Sherwin-Williams Empire Gold SW0012 is the winner in the wall color competition. Farrow & Ball Elephant’s Breath 229 in all its gorgeous metal goodness is the front runner for the master bath cabinets. I can’t help it, I’m a fan of carpet in a bedroom. I swooned when I found the Dana Landing series from Mohawk in the color Ice Plant. The crown molding is from Wish I Had That.
The other night we were watching a movie that I can’t remember the name of at this moment. It must not have made an impression. The big scene with the male star of the movie came up. I put down my magazine (when a movie doesn’t hold my interest I tend to multitask) and Dave noticed I was paying close attention. He inquired when the movie was over if I liked it. He mentioned he noticed the male star got my attention. No, it wasn’t the actor. It was the crimson red dupioni silk drapes in the scene. Talk about a scene stealer!
