Let's first talk about the wall that the dresser sits on, since it has been my biggest challenge. I'm certain that all the experts and maybe even some of you will say you should never had a tv in the bedroom. Personally, laying in bed watching TV is one of my fav things to do so, the TV had to be worked around. I posed that exact statement to a designer and immediately she said "keep the TV." But she followed that up with a "you just need to camouflage it."
Then she began to tell me that I needed to put things on the wall and on the dresser to drowned out the screaming TV...so I did and it worked! Shopping the house yielded more than I had expected, all antiques with the one exception of the shelf. There are very old certificates of baptism, one in French and the other in German. I added a lamp along with a tray that holds an assortment of items to include a body powder puff, my Chanel and other crystal bottles. Clearly you see I have not yet given up my landscape mirror, maybe one day.
In the reflection of the mirror you can see the opposite side of the room where the bed...without a headboard or foot board insert a sad face here. When we upgraded to the king size bed the 4 poster bed moved to the guest bedroom and left me headboardless. Yes I am currently looking for a new headboard but have yet to find what I want at a price I can swing...I won't settle... I can't... I won't!
The vanity on my side was a gift from Honey last year on Valentine's Day. I really didn't intend to leave it in the master so as soon as I find another chest, the vanity will head to the guest bedroom. I wish it could stay but there is just not enough room.
This side of the room is difficult to photograph, there are always shadows! The door you see heads straight to the master bath. The door stays open most of the time so I can't really hang any kind of art on that wall.
In the next few weeks I hope to have the bedding I've bought on the bed along with the curtains I've ordered hung. Cross your fingers they all work together.
Well that is it....our master bedroom. Be sure and check back to see the changes I've got coming for this room!
