New Look in the Master

Happy Friday!  I’ve got some fun updates for you guys!

A little awhile ago I told you we sold our master bedroom set.   We’d had it for several years and this furniture sort of fell into our laps, but the french style never really spoke to us.  It was really nice heavy furniture, so I think a part of us almost felt bad letting it go.   And that’s probably why we hung onto it as long as we did.  But, your home is a place where you should feel happy and comfortable, so we listed everything for sale and off it went!  I was so happy to see it go!

In case you’re new to the blog, here’s a shot of our old bedroom:

Please ignore that my bed isn't made! ;)

 

Our new furniture is more of a mix and match type of thing– a little more eclectic and a lot more us!   We wanted it to be a bit more moody and fun in here.

We painted the walls Benjamin Moore Sandy Hook Gray.  It’s a warm gray- not too gray and not too tan.  We love this color!   The bed came from Wayfair- our ceilings are only 8 footers so we went with a low profile bed to keep from overpowering the room.   We also found an antique dresser at a yardsale for $40, and gave it a modern midcentury makeover.

Our little $15 thrift store end table makes the perfect retro night stand.

We snagged a new rug from RugsUSA a couple weeks ago (this one) and we love it!!  Having hardwoods throughout our home is a great feature, but we definitely need some rugs for a little more color and texture.  You can check out our living room rug here.  I love the pattern in this one, and the gray in the rug matches our wall paint perfectly.  Love when that happens. ;)

About a year ago we picked up the small retro mirrors on clearance at TJ Maxx for $25 for each set of 3.  When we saw them we just knew they’d be perfect for our master bedroom makeover.   I’m such a sucker for gold.  The curtains are also from TJ Maxx, at $30 a pair.  It’s tough to find 96″ curtains at TJ Maxx, so when we spotted these, we didn’t think twice!

One of my favorite things in this room is the addition of our new WallChamers elephant.  I mean seriously–  Elephant + White + Gold = Perfection.  There are several color combinations to choose from, and a HUGE part of me wanted black and gold, but we landed on white and gold for the versatility.

We even considered the moose or the bison, which are both equally just as bad a**, but opted for my favorite animal.  Gotta go with your gut!

The accent pillows are from Target, found on clearance for $6!

We are totally diggin’ our ‘new’ room.  It’s not quite complete yet, but close!  We just want to add a couple small pops of orange, maybe with a throw blanket or a little something for the nightstand.

Happy weekend friends!  What are your plans?!

~xo, Whitney

Happy Friday!  I’m SO excited about the black and white dalmation spots trend I’m seeing everywhere now-a-days!   They are like the not so perfect version of polka dots, and that makes me happy. :)

Here are some of my favorite photos using this new trend:

  1. Love them…reminds me of a cross between polka dots and an a leopard type print…Can’t wait to see them in your home!

Palletpalooza!

I hope you all had a great weekend!  We enjoyed some great Fall weather, and had an awesome time at the Jax Home & Patio show. :)

You guys, I have to share with you this incredible book by my bloggy friend Karah!  She wrote an amazing DIY book with all sorts of delicious ideas for pallet re-purposing!  And I got so much inspiration after reading it, I’m dying to put the two pallets that are currently sitting in my garage to good use!

Please excuse the bad phone pic!

It’s so easy to follow, and the pictures make me want to go DIY now!  My favorite projects that I cannot wait to try are:

The Planter Box.  I’m all about indoor plants, and a couple of these cute little boxes would be nice in our master bedroom.

The Shutters. Check these out!!  They wouldn’t necessarily work on our current home, but maybe a future one!  They are so darn charming.

Full Length Mirror Frame.  This is probably my favorite project, as I’m currently without a full length mirror and I am dying to get one!   I’ve been doing the whole awkward squat thing in the dresser mirror to try to see my whole outfit.  Karah spells it out easily so I can DIY my own.

The Pallet headboard.   So easy.  So chic.  Why haven’t I made one yet?!  And I love the whitewash effect.

The Adirondack chair.  Now that it’s Fall, it feels perfect outside to chill out and relax.  And my patio is calling for this bad boy.  Hint hint– Johnny Ray, let’s make this soon!

You can go here to order Karah’s new book!

Have a great week, friends!

Smiles!  ~ Whitney
