I'm planning to do a complete redo of our master bedroom (or at least the major items in it) so I wanted to capture how it looks currently so there will be a great before and after. There is nothing really wrong with how it is now or the current pieces other than the builder beige really needing to go. But after 5 years with this furniture, I've decided to go with a more mixed look and want some different sizes from what I picked out for our bedroom from our first home. I'm also ready for a new bedding look using a lot more white. I plan to sell the duvet cover and sham (they are organic pottery barn and in excellent condition).
Try to ignore that white spot of primer on the wall. We had a small crack fixed (normal part of the warranty period) and told them not to bother to put paint over the primer since we plan to change paint colors. Also try to ignore the wrinkles on the duvet.... I got lazy and didn't finish ironing it after I washed it. I lack the ironing patience my mom has.
These hydrangeas are one of my favorite parts of the room. I love love hydrangeas and we had blue ones just like this (only real) hanging on the pews for our wedding.
This full length lovely mirror is one of my most recent HomeGoods purchases (sure you can tell that by the stickers and cardboard still attached). I've been looking for one for awhile and the last one we got ended up having imperfections on it and had to be returned. I scoured this one just to be sure and it looked great and for only $100, it's a great addition.
You may also be wondering about all those paint swatches on the wall. Well we have finally picked a winner so I'll do a separate post on all the blues I sampled and what color the room will eventually be painted. I can't wait for it to be painted so we can hang things on the wall.
This vanity used to be in the master bathroom in our old house in this nook area where we opted not to have a garden tub. Since this house's master bath has a garden tub there wasn't a good spot for the vanity so this is a temporary place for it. It's not really the look I'm going for in any of our rooms but since it was my granny's I don't want to get rid of (not yet anyway). It will probably end up in one of the guest rooms when we redo this room.
