Client's Master Bedroom Progress

Hope you all had a nice weekend! It's been overcast these last couple days with rain, so Chris and I weren't able to do much outside over the weekend. We typically like to play some tennis or take a nice bike ride around the lake. Oh well, we'll make up for it this week!

I'm excited to share with you today a sneak peek into my client's master bedroom and show ya'll what I've been busy working on. There are actually several rooms we're tackling, including the foyer, dining room,  and daughter's nursery, but we've been focused on finishing up their master bedroom and bath.

They recently moved into a beautiful home and needed some help with a few things. I was thrilled to help!! I've known these folks for a pretty long time now, and they've been trusting me for years:) Love them both and amazing to work with!!

So here are some before pictures!

We knew the first thing we had to do was come up with a new color scheme for the master bedroom. The original walls were a builder grade taupe that needed to go. Nothing is worse than a whole house of taupe. The ceiling though was a beautiful gray we wanted to keep, and the master bath was painted that same gray. It was key to pull both the master and bath colors together for a nice flow between the two rooms.

Secondly, they had recently bought their bedroom furniture and bedding, which they knew they wanted to incorporate into the new design and keep. Black bedding I've learned can be tricky. It can look very dark and heavy. Finding some other bedding to help tone the black down and lighten things up a bit was an area of main focus. I've been working towards pairing it with some other bedding that is lighter.

Finally, we needed to remove some of the furniture and incorporate a nice chair or chaise into the room for reading or lounging. We started with two dressers. One they never use, and one the T.V. sits on. We opted to remove the long dresser, and play around with furniture placement for the other.

We're so close to getting things finished up. Walls have been painted, but still needing a few things. My goal is to have the room complete by first of May. Wish me luck!!

Here is my list of some of the things to get this room finished up and beautified!!

1. New euro pillows and throw pillows for bed
2. Silverish coverlet (not easy to find)
3. Possibly new lamps or new shades, preferably a gray shade (not easy to find ya'll)
4. Chair or chaise
5. Large leaner mirror for wall
6. Drapery and hardware
7. New ceiling fan

{What is that little window doing??}

I'd love to hear your feedback as far as what you think about the room. We've been stumped though by this small window, which really serves no purpose. We're not sure what the builder was thinking when they put this random window in. I was going to leave it alone, and just dress the other large window. I think ultimately, it just needs to be closed up. It would be nice to have the same size window in it's place as the other. What a brilliant idea Mr. Builder!

Thanks for stopping by and have a great Monday!!!
