This Friday is Day one of One Room At A Time. This time the girls and I are doing a refresh on our Master Bedrooms. So when I started contemplating what I wanted to do in my master, I had to decide exactly what was my bedroom style.
I have a confession.
When we moved into this house three years ago I literally moved the furniture into the exact same spots that I had them in our old house.
And I haven’t done a thing in there, except to decorate for Christmas, since!
It’s time to hang a few things on the wall and figure out what I want this room to look.
I made a list of what I love.
Number one – I love a blue bedroom.
It’s super calming and restful for me.
Also, I’m probably never going to have a bed without a white matelasse quilt on it.
It’s the perfect weight, color and style for me.
I love a bed that has layers, texture and pattern.
Let’s start with a neutral quilt, add in a duvet folded at the foot of the bed and then add in a ton of pillows in different co-ordinating patterns !
I grew up sleeping on 100% cotton sheets and I still love them over microfiber ones.
Although I do have a really great set of microfiber sheets that are super soft, so often the Microfiber sheets can feel a little like plastic to me and they are hot.
While I tend to stick to white, soft blue or gray sheets I have to admit I LOVE sheets that have pattern and coordinate like you see in the photo above.
Plus, they had me at the mice!
Aren’t they sweet?
Toile or Florals
I’m a big sucker for toile or floral bedding.
Since my husband is just OK with them I tend to add them in here and there against neutrals.
So it’s a win for both of us!
I also love a great monogram.
What can I say?
I live in the south!
When looking at buying furniture I love soft, sexy curves.
A fun turned leg, a sweeping tall headboard, or a rounded back.
Again, soft curves with floral patterned fabric against neutrals.
I was getting into a groove on finding all of the things I loved when I saw this bed.
It has everything I love.
Large headboard, neutral bedspread, floral duvet with a co-ordinating dust ruffle.
Lots of matching pillows with a monogram!
What’s not to love?
And after looking at all of the photos that I had compiled I realized that my bedroom style is…
Drum roll please!
Traditional or Grandmellinial style!
So this is where I’m starting from and I can’t wait to finish it up!
Be sure and check back in on Friday for my inspiration board and my video tour and plans on Facebook!
Until next time….
