First of all, the new house's master bedroom is HUGE. Like, 30' x 14' huge. Our current master bedroom is a decent size, 11-1/2' by 15', but the new master puts our current one to shame. The reason the master bedroom in the new house is so big is that the current owners got cray-zay and put a 14' x 14' addition onto the master bedroom, which they've been using as an office and sitting room. Hubs and I plan to use the additional space for the same purpose, and it was a big selling point of the house.
I really want to do some things in the bedroom to maximize space and efficiency, and also to make the room comfortable. We are FINALLY going to be upgrading to a king size bed, which is a huge step for us. My husband seriously has a love affair going on with our current queen mattress, and I never thought I'd be able to tear him away. BUT, after sleeping in a king size bed on a recent weekend trip, he agreed that we must have the bigger bed in our house.
And since we're getting a new bed, I have to buy new bedding, of course. I've been looking around, and Hubs and I finally agreed on getting our bedding from West Elm. I love the simple modern flair of practically everything in their catalog. We chose to go with a purple, gray and white motif, and I think it will look awesome with our white bedroom and office furniture.
Here are the quilt and pillow shams we chose...
|Stella Quilt and Shams|
With these throw pillows...
|Honeycomb Crewel Pillow Cover in Platinum|
And this sheet set...
|Organic Ikat-Stripe in Platinum|
Now that we've got our bedding on lock, it's time to focus on other areas of the master. We've picked out some new ceiling fans, and we'll be choosing new flooring in the upcoming weeks. We're also still shopping for a loveseat and an ottoman for the sitting area, and I'm working on plans for additional office storage and bookcases. Last but not least, we need to choose a paint color. I'm gunning for a light gray with white trim, doors and ceilings, but Hubs thinks that sounds depressing. Ugh. If any of you have any suggestions for me, I'm all ears!!
I can't wait to pull it all together and share the finished product with you! Only 6 weeks away... Stay tuned for pictures!!
