Master Bedroom Makeover

I have been up to something ... besides napping and reading and wearing snowman pj's.

And ...I don't like these guys anymore:

They make me want to change everything about my home.  Every.  Single.  Season.

And I love every issue.  And I hate changing what I just did.  And so I love to hate them.

** sigh**

And then I redo.  But this time, for the last time!  Until that next catalog comes, anyway.

I started with good intentions of warming up this high vaulted space.  

The "peanut butter chocolate" combo — as Christian called it — only succeeded in making the room more cavelike.  Like a cave, you'd want to hide in to eat peanut butter and chocolate, so no one could see you.

Treed in as our house is, it was turning out to be too dark of a look.

So, recently I started over ... darn that Pottery Barn.

New coat of bright white, some pillows from Target.  New duvet, curtains, and couch from our just opened Ikea ( **love**), and a rearrangement of some previously owned accessories.

It's a whole new room.

A room I'd like to sit in all day and openly eat vanilla ice cream and read catalogs that I love to hate.


  1. BEAUTIFUL! This is on my list of house projects. Unfortunately it keeps getting pushed to the bottom as our "public" spaces tend to take priority. Sigh. Maybe next year.
