Styling the Master Bedroom

Styling the master bedroom in this house has taken practically the entire summer.. Way back in May I shared for the first time our master, you can read about it here.

At long last, the bed is sporting new bedding most of which was purchased months ago from a variety of places.  The quilt/coverlet I found at SteinMart way back in the spring.  At that time I had no idea what I would find to go with it so it sat in my closet all summer.

Don't you just love the toile shams?!  They've been sitting in the bottom of my closet since I found them at an antique store back in May.  Best part of the shams, they cost me $12 each!  Ya'll I've been pricing custom shams for months and they were not in the budget but, at 24 bucks I was delighted to bring them home.

The small needle point pillow was also a thrift store find.  The euro shams, dust ruffle and throw pillow are all part of a set from Dillard's.  As soon as I found out that they were going to be on their extra 40% off sale I just sat and waited for that day.  Fortunately, the shams worked with the coverlet I had already picked up.

One thing that decorating our bedroom has taught me is patience.  I don't believe there isn't anything in this room that I haven't had to wait to purchase or find.  A few weeks ago I also shared that the vanity that was serving as a bedside table had made a move up to the guest room.  It got to move when I found a new/old bedside table on one of  those online yard sale sites that are all over Facebook.

Let's talk about lamps for just a minute.  I don't love the one on the night stand.  There is a pair of them that I have had forever!  John was a baby when I found these in Kirkland's some 16 years ago.  For now they will get us by for bedside lighting.  Honestly ya'll, I'm not sure what I want in their place.  Something with a bit more color for sure, a larger shade no doubt!  But again....patience.

Since we still do not have a headboard for our king size bed I knew whatever went over the bed would need to make a statement and almost imulate a headboard.  These prints were a find at an antique store about 2 years ago and have been in various spots in the house.  Not sure when it occured to me to put those over the bed but I knew they would be perfect.

The sconce and the crested plate were a more recent purchase, both appear to be very old and an ideal crown to the the prints.

Now if I could just find lamps and curtains....yet another lesson in patience.

  1. It all looks great, and yes, it does take patience to find that "just right" piece.

  2. It looks so good Tamyra. The prints are perfect over the bed and I love the toile shams and the needlepoint pillow. Great job on your bedroom.

  3. What a great idea to put the prints together over the bed! It's all coming together very nicely! Of course you know that a room is never really "finished" when you love decorating with beautiful things!

  4. Gorgeous!! Love the prints and the 'crown'! Great ideas all around. Good luck finding the lamps you want. I think if you could find some that somehow match your frames and the sconce would be beautiful! Beautiful job!
