Master Bedroom Makeover?

It's been awhile since this little house of ours has undergone a transformation. It's 'bout time we changed that!

After reading my favorite new-to-me magazine the other month or so, I just could not get this image out of my head. Thanks to my main guy for scanning it for me!


I loved the colors, the bedding, those gorgeous mirrored nightstands and that framed fabric behind them. P.S. The spread can be found in the Canadian House and Home May 2011 issue seen here:

For awhile now my mind has been flopping back and forth between either buying a fabric that mimicked the one above or using this wallpaper {seen on Secrets From A Stylist--go Emily!} to do something similar behind our nightstands.

As a side note, it's a shame that pink table didn't stick around til the second look of Emily's show. You know this girl loves it!

But back again to the fabric...the other day I googled the fabric used in House and Home shoot and I found that it is rather affordable and can be found at Calico Corners.

Annnnd, we have a Calico Corners in St. Louis!! After seeing it on the screen I feel like I need to see it in person to be for sure. It's really pretty and soft and rather sophisticated. I'm a little shocked I like it so much since it's definitely a bit of a change from my bolder decisions I've been drawn to in the past. I just go with it!

I don't plan on replacing our nightstands at all {even though mirrored ones would be yummy!}, but the bed could be another story. I guess we'll see! I just have to decide between the fabric or wallpaper, fabric or wallpaper....

Oh I love this! That fabric is really beautiful. This is definitely different from the rest of your rooms, but it will be so beautiful!

Your plans look scrumptious. What about the floor? Are you thinking of an area rug like in the magazine or will you just go with what's already there?

I really like the wallpaper--and I liked on Secrets...Stylist, too. It seems to be right up your alley!!

I love love love the Calico Corners fabric over the gold and white one. Why? More visual interest with the bird, florals, branches,etc while the other one is just petals (too repetitive), and also I think the variety of colors in the CC fabric will give you more options to play with color for the rest of the room. It also makes a great focal point. Wishing I had access to that fabric too!

Gorgeous! I cannot WAIT to see it come together. Like everything you do, it will be magical.

That screen is a fun idea! But that wallpaper is pretty awesome too! My bedroom has some of those soft colors and it makes a room a peaceful retreat.

That is a gorgeous inspiration room and that fabric is sooo gorgeous.

Coley said...

Look forward to seeing how you transform your bedroom, I know its going to be great. If you get a chance stop by and see my recent thrifty finds a antique GE fan, and a tobacco basket.

You have such an eye!! I didn't even notice the floral print...I think I was too distracted by the mirrored end table (slight obession that I need to make a reality...)

I love your inspiration photo and all of the fabric you are looking at! Can't wait to see what you come up with!. =)

Hi Joi,
Is that fabric really the same? The colors look different to me. Beautiful idea to frame it behind the nightstands, though.

Thanks for the scan, I love the fabric too! Our master bedroom's main color is purple too and this would be an awesome addition to our room as well... Pinned your scan!

I have been in love with that fabric since researching curtain fabric a few months ago. I love the purply-pink-blues, and it has peacocks, which I'm currently obsessed with. Its a great choice!

Why is it that my eyes usually skip over an element but then when you point it out, I suddenly WANT it?! HA!

I love the whimsical fabric--it almost has a chinoiserie essence to it. Can't wait to see what you do!

Suzie said...

Do it! I love all the soft lilacs and grays - so beautiful!
