Since we were pretty much trapped inside, we decided to finish painting our master bedroom and wrap up the project. I would like to start by sharing a few pictures of what our master bedroom used to look like Before and During the makeover.
This is what it looked like from two years ago. I need the room to be completely dark in order to sleep and hence the ugly espresso dupioni drapes with blackout liners.
The new bedroom in the basement gave me a perfect reason to replace the bed set that we took with us from our last house.
And the new upholstered bed from Williams-Sonoma, and the Niche nightstands from West Elm arrived!
So this is our After of our master bedroom. The entire project took about two months.
The ever-popular Windsor Smith Pelagos Mist drapes with blackout liners.
West Elm Niche Nightstand/Bedside Table in White
I was hoping to find an area rug from the Elte Outlet, but unfortunately they only have ~50 patterns at 5x8 (all the rest are 6x9 or larger), nothing out of which really caught my eye. So I gave the Ikea Alvine Ruta rug a try, and I think it turned out great. Do you know how insanely cheap it is for a 5'7" x 7'10", hand-woven, 100% pure new wool rug like this?
And no master bedroom should ever go without displaying some girl's best friends, right? My daily bling-bling.
In summary, these are the things we've done to transform our master bedroom:
- Ordered the Windsor Smith Pelagos fabric in Mist from the US for drapery;
- Replaced the old bed set with a upholstered bed from Williams-Sonoma, and two nightstands from West Elm;
- Replaced the old table lamps with two taller crystal lamps from Union Lighting;
- Replaced the ceiling light with a 6-light Maria Theresa-style crystal chandelier from Union Lighting;
- Painted the wall in ICI Dulux Silver Cloud;
- Re-upholstered an old bench in Laura Ashley Bowlin Driftwood Fabric from InVu Drapery;
- Added an Ikea Alvine Ruta Rug.
Total cost: too painful to recall.
Hope everyone has a great weekend, and stay warm!
