House Tour - Master Bedroom



In my last house the master bedroom was the last room that I decorated. In this new house it was the first. I really just moved most of my decor into the new room and put everything up. I made the valances and euro shams and got lucky the windows were about the same size. Someday I'll get around to making a bedskirt. I know it really needs one. The black silk pillows I got at Hobby Lobby and I have a friend with an embroidery business who did the monograms. We barter window treatments for embroidery. I'm sure when I finish with the rest of the house the master will need a redo. I'm not sure I still love the red/yellow/black scheme anymore, but for now it is staying. I have just left the room the builders taupe color. It seems to work and I think I'll wait to paint if I end up changing the decor sometime.


This part of the room is a little blah, still have to work on that. I have 2 chairs in the basement waiting to be reupholstered, and I keep putting it off. I think they would look good flanking the armoire with some kid photography. The master bath is still quite sterile, but I will add some pics to this post tomorrow. Then it's off to the kitchen for the next room. This tour has no rhyme or reason except I am showing you the rooms that I have at least somewhat decorated first. Have a great day.


Hooked on Houses is having a house tour blog party on Tuesday. Be sure to stop by and check out some tours.
