Some Changes in our Master Bedroom

                                                                         Hello everyone,
                                                  I know I mentioned that we had a painter
                                                  in for over a week making some changes
                                                  in our woodwork and walls in a few rooms.

                                                        So our bedroom was just painted revere pewter
                                                       and the ceiling and trim cloud white all
                                                       Benjamin Moore paints.
                                                          I painted the tall dresser in the corner
                                                          Yarmouth blue and put a dark Annie
                                                            Sloan wax on it. It was a creamy
                                                            white before.

                                         I made the curtains around the bed last year and
                                         the crochet lace toppers are window valences.

                                                            Love the roses on this tea set.
                                                    Some beautiful roses for Mother's Day.

                                    The bedroom and the hallway at the top of the stairs.

                                               If you would like to see last years look check it out
                                               here or here.. Although,I liked the look before, I felt it
                                               needed just a little more color and the trim especially
                                              needed to be freshen up as it had been several
                                              years since it was done.
                                                             I am still tweaking our family room so
                                                             when that id done I will share it with you.

                                                                                    Thank you for visiting,

Oh I love everything about this romantic, dreamy space! From the linens to paint choices to the small touches as the vintage handbag, the gorgeous tea set, and the vintage clothing hanging - beautiful.

What a lovely change with the new color of the walls and the simple painting of the chest of drawers blue! I'm sure you are enjoying the change.

The wood floor shines so bright! I love every corner of your bedroom Carolyn. It feels like I’m going some time to take a look at your photos. I love the accessories, most especially the lamp and the mirror that beautifies the whole room. Your ideas are magnificent!

Kathy @ Creative Home Expressions said...

It's a nice looking color and doesn't look too dark, Carolyn. How are you liking it compared to the white you had before? We are going to have to paint our master {it is just a plain old beige right now} and I am torn between a creamy white, a darker beige, or trying one of the greys. I will just have to get some samples and put them on the wall at some point, but I feel like I am so far apart on colors right now.

It turned out lovely... I love that color. I was going to paint our little white cottage in that color, but changed my mind at the last minute. It is lovely thought....
