So the first steps of my master bedroom suite redo have been completed.  I painted the bedroom and bathroom (in one weekend, boy was I tired).  For the bedroom I chose a favorite neutral of mine, Benjamin Moore’s Shaker Beige.  To contrast in the bathroom I chose Benjamin Moore’s Tranquility.  Honestly, the Tranquility turned out more blue than imagined but I love the way it looks behind the Shaker Beige as you enter the bathroom from the bedroom.  I also love what it does to the accent border tiles.

In the bedroom we also mounted the flat screen TV on the wall which freed up so much space.  We moved the dresser that was under the TV, to the window wall.  Check out how the shades now pop against the Shaker Beige.

Dresser moved to window wall.

The mirror that is currently on top of the dresser will ultimately go above the new headboard which should arrive in January.  The chair that is currently there is left over from our old house and will be replaced in the near future.  I want to place a full length floor mirror on the wall perpendicular to the window wall and opposite where the chair is now.  Next will be adding the swing arm wall sconces on either side of the bed and I will be making two cornice boards to go over the windows.  The fabric has blues and greens and will help to unify the colors in the bedroom and bathroom.  The new shirred bedskirt, hopefully in January as well will also help to tie the colors together.  New bedding and accent pillows should finish off the fabric scheme.

In the bathroom you see two fretwork mirrored silver wall sconces on the wall.  These are from Bassett Furniture, one of our lines of furniture.  I just love the way they bling and their curves are so romantic.  Eventually I will find the perfect piece of artwork to go between them.  I just love how the new cafe draperies pop against the Tranquility.

The bathroom doesn’t require too much more.  New fixtures (towel bars, toilet paper holder, light fixtures, faucets and a few carefully placed accessories and this retreat will be ready for some nice long baths (as if there’s time).

Stay tuned for more to come soon…
