Obviously, when you move into a new home, settling where you’re going to sleep, and making it comfortable is of primary importance. Well, we had a mattress, and a dresser…and that’s it. For. Two. Months. That sort of bohemian existence might not have bothered some of you, but it was extremely stressful to me. Even my husband, once we set up the new bed and got it looking all pretty, said “I actually feel like I’m at home now.” Exactly.
When we moved in:
It’s sort of a long, narrow room. Windows on two sides, with a 3/4 bath right behind where I’m standing, the door to the hall on my left.
(Left photo) I was standing in that corner in the previous picture. Note the blueblueblueblue Master Bathroom. That one’s for boys. The pink one in the hall is for girls. (Right photo) This was my sort-of inspiration for the color scheme and feel of the room. (A Pinterest find.) Muted Stacie-blue and washed-out coral-y oranges and russets with silly pillows (sillows?) Also, mirrors and metallics.
I went ahead and painted during our second week in the house, because I was confident of where I was going on that score. It’s the color my whole family calls Stacie-Blue. A pale, slightly grey robin’s egg shade. Nice. So at least the color was nice in our bohemian bedroom.
The fluffies enjoyed the laziness of simply stepping up into bed, instead of leaping. Bad iPhone pic.
BUT NOW, we have a full-fledged Master Bedroom with a bed and art on the walls, and a cow humidifier.
Isn’t it dreamy? We have BS on our wall. It’s unfortunate that I can’t sleep on the other side of the bed.
Ikea “MALM” bed. It’s the high profile one, king-size in the darkest finish they have. Very sturdy!
Husband’s nightstand. Cow humidifier. My nightstand.
The nightstands are vintage, probably 1930s. The cow humidifier is not vintage.
I need to dust. This is our owl change jar where I put all the loose change I “steal” out of my husband’s pockets. It goes toward our travel fund. Also, a wedding photo by the amazing Brooke Ogilvie.
Lamps from some cheapy store. Dressers from Overstock.com. Fancy clock from thrift store.
I’m going to pick a time and draw it in with a Sharpie. Maybe 4:42, when we were officially married?
Sillows. From Target and TJ Maxx or Marshall’s or somewhere.
Letters from Hobby Lobby. Epic fox hunt painting from my mother-in-law. I LOVE how the tarnished gold looks against the blue.
Dresser from Overstock. Cow misty from Target. Mirrors from Wal-Mart in the early 90s.
We have lots of doors on that side of the room.
*sigh* Wish you could see the view into the backyard from the bed at sunrise (our room faces east.) But that’s another post.
