Welcome Part 8: the Master Suite.
My bedside lamps are where the entire color palette began and they remain one of my favorite parts of the room. I once read that every girl should own a matching set of something. Well, these lamps are my something.
My other favorite is the starburst mirror that resides above my headboard. After months of watching and waiting I got a great deal on it!
Curtains are at the top of my Wish List. I’m dying to find some plain linen ones in goldenrod, but they’re proving to be the death of me. So now I’m also beginning to consider either a light gray or teal colored set.
I’m all about white bedding. I’ve covered my down comforter with duvets in the past and it just doesn’t feel the same to me. I believe in a white down comforter always and white sheets when possible. These are 500 thread count Egyptian cotton and have spoiled me like no other. If you’ve never experienced a set I suggest you do so in the very near future – your life will never be the same!
My two dressers have been with me since I was 11. That’s forever. I’m definitely searching out some newer, more modern looking pieces. But my grandparents bought these for me and they’re really quality work, so they’re not headed for Goodwill any time soon.
Just like I inherited my dad’s secretary desk, I also have my mom’s cedar chest. My grandmother bought it for her and my dad when they got married. I’ve considered painting it, but can’t stand the thought of marring such pretty wood.
This is built-in is the focal point of the walk-in closet off of my bedroom. I use its shelves to display hats, clutches, jewelry box and perfumes. The sight of them never fails to make me smile. There are also shelve above the racks on either side where I stash larger purses and shoeboxes.
The paint in the master bath is exactly two shades darker than the bedroom walls. I love the oyster shell hue in the bedroom, but wanted to change it up slightly. I’m all about the white in here as well. White seersucker shower curtain, white towels, white rug. The space isn’t all that large, but the use of light colors has definitely helped open it up.
I’m actually really impressed with all the storage in the bathroom. I’m a product whore, making lots of space a MUST! To the right of the towel rack is the second walk-in closet. It’s safe to say I’ve never had so much storage in my life!
The only two things that I’d like to do with the bath at the moment are installing a permanent shower rod and replacing the cabinet fixtures with glass knobs. This past weekend we replaced the faucet and it makes such a difference! (Pictures to come)
