Master Bedroom Update

Monday, April 15, 2013

Alright peeps. I hope you are not getting tired of the constant mind-changing when it comes to our master bedroom.  A while back I published four different concepts for the master bedroom based on a beni-ourain rug as the foundation. Then I had a change of heart after seeing a black and white graphic print at Calico Corners and went in a different direction with a bright oriental grounding the space. Here was that concept:

Well, more recently I've decided I like the graphic fabric on my wing chair downstairs. Then i went to Target and found these fabulous yellow paisley drapes and I thought, why not change it again?  I had already purchased the sconces, thank God - one decision down.  So here we are on concept board round 6.  I went ahead and bought the yellow drapes and am going to do a black hardware from Pottery Barn. Can't decide if I want to keep the grommet tops or change them to a pinch pleat (thoughts? Are grommet top drapes cheap / cheesy? Am I just being lazy keeping them?).  The red rug wasn't doing it and was really a stand in during the previous round. After reading Jenny's post on LGN about her new viscose rug, I found this fabulous one at Rugs USA on sale.  It is soft and geometric but doesn't fight with the geometry on our quilt. I can't wait to get it next week and then install our sconces and really show you how the room is finally shaping up. After taking out the red, I went back to my original orange headboard idea and West Elm might just have one that works with our bed frame.  Oh, and then there are these fabulous lucite Jonathan Adler shelves used as nightstands. I think these are on the "if I win the lottery" list, but a girl can dream until she finds something real to fit the bill.  What do you all think? I feel like it's finally getting there.


  1. can't wait to see it all come together! and, I am on the fence too about grommets on curtains...they seem a little childish to me, but they are everywhere right now. but, if you don't like them, at least it's an easy fix!

  2. Your new plans look great! Loving that rug you found, and thanks to you I now have a new style headboard to consider (we need one in a bad way). As for grommets, I am not a huge fan myself, but I've seen stylish people use them :)
