Don’t look at the bedding. Do instead look at the headboard and lights. We finally got our amazing upholstered bonnet style headboard in from Bassett last week. We also had our sconces installed. We purchased the Chelsea Sconces from Pottery Barn. They come as plug ins but a very good friend who’s an electrician helped us to hard wire them. They are fabulous. Now we can control them from the light switch or from the sconces. They are two way so we can have both mood lighting and task lighting. The headboard was made by Bassett Furniture. However I did COM (customer’s own material) on the fabric. I used the same linen fabric that I used for my master bathroom cafe style draperies. Its soft, textural and easy. Its hard to see in the pictures for the color is lighter than the walls so it does stand out without being overwhelming.

So what’s next. I’m headed out to buy the materials for the cornice boards. Those should be the next portion. The duvet is being made, can’t wait to show that off. Then its the bedskirt and light fixture. Finally I hope to purchase a comfy chair and ottoman and bench for the end of the bed. A few mirrors and some well placed accessories and the room will be complete. Stay tuned!!!

So not much has happened with my master bedroom since the last post. The holidays took us away from home to visit family. However, I did finally purchase the walls sconces and ordered the headboard. Take a look at the sconces. They are the Chelsea Sconces from Pottery Barn. Although these are plug in, we are going to hardwire them.

Master bedroom swing arm wall sconces. They are on their way and I can't wait.

Here is the headboard. It is from Bassett Furniture, one of my favorite furniture manufacturers. I love the shape and style. I actually am purchasing it COM (customer’s own material). I am sending them the same linen fabric that I used in the master bedroom cafe draperies. It will look very similar to the picture below. I love how natural and comfy it looks.

This photo shows the contrast welt but I will not be getting that.

In the next couple of weeks I hope to put together the cornice boards. Also, a couple of colleagues and I will be working on launching our own line of home accessories to include the duvet cover which I plan to use in my bedroom. Keep a lookout for this creative idea in the next few weeks.

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…
