Master Bedroom Changes

::Still hitting home runs with my blog post titles. Haha.:: 

In our first home our bedroom went through so many changes--I say that like the rest of the house was decorated once and done.  Cue the laughter; that's funny, right?!? A decor obsessed gal's home is never finished!

When we moved in to this home I really had no plans for our bedroom. It's so much bigger than any other bedroom I've ever had so that's a new challenge for me. We placed all of our old bedroom furniture in here plus Theron's glider and it stayed like that for months.

And while I really like that vibe and look you see in the picture, I was just kinda over it. I wanted to feel refreshed and inspired and it just wasn't evoking those emotions. Maybe I overanalyze how I should feel about my bedroom. You guys do it, too, right? Or am I totally alone?

I shared with you guys that I recently scored some sweet new floral pillows, and they totally changed the game.

They are not as calming as the last color palette but that's ok. They're so "me" and well David, he could sleep in a polka dot and striped neon room. The guy couldn't care less as long as there's a bed - I sure got lucky! ;-)

So here's our very in-progress shot as it looks today:

I got rid of the Ikat throw at the end of the bed but had to have a similar replacement for it.  I love that a quilt stays cool to the touch so that was a non-issue for me. I picked up a mustard yellow one at Target and I have plans to tone it down with this throw. It's kinda pricey for a blanket so I haven't bit the bullet yet.

I also added the circle mirrors that were in the hallway of our last home onto our nightstands. I'm not convinced I love them there but it's ok for now. I also need some new lamps because I moved the original lamps into the living room.

I want to move the pin tuck duvet into the guest bedroom and get this one from West Elm as seen in Orlando Soria's bedroom via Emily Henderson's blog

The striped rug is from Theron's old playroom and I really just moved it in there to see how I felt layering a rug on carpet.

Just out of view, to the left of the bed, is now a desk area and I'm on the lookout for a new [to me] chair and I'll have to snap some pics so you can see how that area's shaping up, too.  And, while a fan is a must have in our bedroom, I'm really jonesing for a pretty chandelier.  Do those vintage looking fans put off a nice amount of air? Anyone have one?

So basically, anything is fair game in this room and like always, you guys are along for the ride.

Happy St. Patty's day, too!

Girl, you need to be a stylist for Anthro or West Elm or something. You just have an eye to create such beautifully styled spaces! That is a talent, my friend! I need you just to come to my house (I'll give you a credit card, ok?) and you can just go crazy and style it as your heart pleases. :)

I have rugs in every room I have carpet. It adds extra color, pattern, & texture to my vanilla looking carpet. I have removed my living room rug now while I'm waiting for my new one to arrive & it looks ridiculously bare. Loving your room changes. (And your title-straight to the point:)

your room is looking great!! I too am considering ditching our ceiling fan for something pretty but being on the second floor in the midwest in August is holding me back.

I always giggle when I post a reveal or say a room's "done". It's like an addiction. Ooh, I love the direction you're going!! D needs to chat w/ R about going with your wife's decor flow....that sounds weird, sorry.

Hey what about swing arm lamps?!?

Looking good! And now I want that swiss cross blanket.

Also, I was left a comment today that a rug on carpet is horrid. Glad I'm not the only one causing nightmares. ;)

I love where you're going with it all! I think the brighter colors suit you. I'm totally digging the tall mirrors by the nightstands. Of course the gold is awesome, but the circle shapes with the straight lines you have going really works. They also raise your eye.

I've used rugs on carpet for a while and I have to say that thicker pile/heavier rugs work well. Whereas Kilims will not lay nicely. I've never tried them with a rug pad, but I think that helps a lot. I like the rug in there too.

Love the changes! Those mirrors are amazing!!

Love it all! And those floral pillows just seem so "you" to me.
