**Updated to add: Yep, that is my dog's bed under the window there (got it at Costco!). I thought about removing it for the photo, but let's keep it real here! (I didn't dust or vacuum either.) Also, the paint color is by Valspar and is called "London Smoke." However, I got it home and it seemed too dark for me, so I added probably about a gallon of white to it. So now it is my own custom color!
We are almost done with our tour of my house! (Hmmm...do you think that is enough reason to convince my husband to start our basement refinishing project? I need more rooms to show on my blog, honey! This is important!) Today we are visiting the master bedroom.
The first thing you will notice is that it is actually a different color then the rest of the rooms in my house! I am very surprised at how much I love this room, because I usually gravitate towards the "warm" colors on the color palette. But I think of this color as a pale robin's egg blue, and I adore it!
Above is a lovely shot of the many cords I have hanging off my bedside table. So pretty, don't you think? I also wanted to show you this table because it came to us as a castaway that was in my husband's parents' house when they moved in. Crazy, right? I sanded it and stained it a darker color, and I love it!
I also thought you might want to see a close up of our bedding, because I agonized over these paisley pillows for months! But the colors in the fabric really work to pull the whole room together. The Euro pillows behind them are actually covered with an old tablecloth of my grandmother's. She always had the most wonderful, warm and inviting family meals around the table, so by the time she passed away, her tablecloths were pretty beat up. I was able to salvage enough to cover my pillows so that I have something of her near me still. I hope she would like that idea.
Above is the opposite corner of the bedroom that you couldn't see in the first photo. Sometimes I come up here and read, or just curl up after I take a shower to get a break! The chair sits next to a window with a great view of the mountains, so it's very relaxing.
You know, I had the hardest time pulling this room together, because I was so afraid of the color, but now that it's done I think I am most proud of how it turned out. Isn't it funny how that works? Maybe that's a lesson to me to step out of my box a little more often...what do you think?
