Our Home ... Master Bedroom

 Last week I made a commitment to show you our home.  I am thrilled to invite you in ... but please keep in mind ... this is a work in progress! 

Come on In ... 

Don't worry about taking your shoes off here ... we have lots of dogs ... they run barefooted!

I am taking you straight up the stairs to the Master Bedroom!  

You are going to have to use your imagination with me here ... this was the bedroom when we bought the house.

EW.  Sorry, just old and lacey.  You know I love antiques ... but I need to lighten them up with some other fun things.

I should also add that when we bought the house ... everything was Green.  


Stay Focused here ... Below is the Sitting Room ... 

The Original layout brought you in the Sitting Room, then a small walk in closet was behind the sitting room and then you turned into the separate bedroom (above).  

We declared this weird and also Sammy was very little when we moved here ... she really couldn't find us tucked behind all the doors!

We blew out the walk in closet and turned the Sitting Room into our Bedroom.  

We still have the sitting room it is just IN our bedroom ... much better.  We would have NEVER sat in that little room!

So here it is now ...

Yep, we are TV watchers.  I cannot lie.  And the Chairs ... need slipcovers.  They are Raw.  I cannot make up my mind on these, so they just SIT!

And at the other end ... our Bed.

I found the Chandelier at Scott's ... you know the Lady with all the French Antiques in the Back (I think it is the South Building).  She's one of my favorite booths to visit ... If only I could just rent a truck and bring a haul home one day!!

Notice the 3 windows on the back wall.  When we removed the closet there were no windows.  We opted for this rather than two traditional windows on each side of the bed because the room is narrow.  Plus I think this gives us a little more light!  One Day I will add window treatments.

As you take this tour with me you will learn that Don and I love Art.  Of all kinds, we like Contemporary, Traditional, French, Folk ... some we splurged on ... some we bought from emerging artists that are more affordable.  Some our Kids made.
I have said this in the past ... and will say it Again. And Again. I am a fan of REAL art.  Whether it is a Fine Painting from on of the Greats or a Self Portrait from your child.  Art needs to be original and speak to you.  Don't buy it because it MATCHES!!  Buy it because you LOVE it!

One of the first things we did was add the bookshelves.  They make it warmer and more cozy.  They tend to get shuffled around frequently as I add and take away.  

This is how they are today.
You may remember the Clock I swiped from Alice!

Don's a wanna be Rock Star (thus the guitars!)  ... suits me, I'm a wanna be Country Music Singer.  We fit perfectly.

Okay ... so remember the Original Bedroom above??  It is now our Closet.  Yeah, pretty jazzed about that!  We'll be taking a look at it and the Master Bath (pretty tiny, but still room for Art!) next week!

Thanks for stopping by to say hello!  Next week I'll let you peek into my bathroom and closet!  Enjoy your Week!!  Kids are on break this week ... we're having a little R&R ... will share more on Travel Friday!!
