I’ve been dreaming about getting this room redone for over a year. When we moved in, we literally didn’t do a thing to our bedroom. We had a mishmash of furniture in there – a double dresser my parents bought us for our wedding, the chest of drawers Chris had as a kid, a Queen bed we bought in Florida, and a pair of nightstands we assembled ourselves. Nothing fancy, for sure! The bedding was a cute set…. ten years ago.
The walls of the bedroom were gray and the adjoining bath was red when we got here. We had the bathroom repainted blue a few months ago. I love the way it looks with the white tiles and silver fixtures! I wanted to do our bedroom with blue and silvers – not matchy-matchy with the bathroom, but something that would flow well between the two spaces.

The reaction shot: “Wow, Mama, it’s like a HOTEL in here!”
I’m so pleased with how it has turned out! I completely forgot about styling the open bottom shelf of our nightstands when I was shopping. I think I may be able to pull together something (hardcover books in shades of blues and grays? silver bowl?) from stuff I already own. We’ll see.
I wanted to get a tassle for our ceiling fan but couldn’t find the right shade of peacock/teal, so that’s still on my to-do list. Also would love to add a rug on Chris’ side of the bed (between the bed and the double doors to our bathroom).
I didn’t take pictures of the bathroom today, but plan to add them! I absolutely love that space – it feels so crisp and pretty (plus both my DIY projects in there turned out beautifully, if I do say so mahself). I’m still hunting for a silver and/or glass and/or mirrored shelf to add in the little nook for our towels and things. There are a few I’ve found (*cough*restorationhardware*cough*expensive!*cough*) but I’d really love to find something truly vintage.
