Ahh we are almost finished with these! Today we have the before and after of our master bedroom and bath-which was surprisingly the most controversial part of spread and I will explain all.
If you followed along on the blog during the design process you know that our master bed gave me the most trouble. But once I calmed down and just went with it, it came together SO well. We just love it. It is so pure, cozy, warm but also bright and happy. The painting above the bed is by the same artist who did the monkey painting in the kitchen. The kitchen painting is on a 5 year loan as a wedding gift from my Godfather, the one above our bed was my moms and had been hidden in a corner forever because she was too embarrassed to hang it where people could see it. No problem for this guy! I be shameless.
Opposite the bed sits my vanity and our TV…
The situation around the TV isn’t totally perfect, but I couldn’t stand just looking at that big honking black hole in the midst of the luscious green wall and it works for now… I LOVE my vanity though. Everything on it is a hand me down from my momma and grandparents, except for the lamp which was a vintage find that I am obsessed with. I might have to give her to our baby girl one of these days, but for now that sucker is mine all mine.
For a little perspective…
There is a little ante room before our bedroom, which is to the left there, and on the right is my pink heavenly closet.This was taken by me obviously-pre photoshoot styling but I wanted to show you the amazing window treatments…Love.
Alaina did a pretty fab post with closet pics and I dont really feel like rehashing that all, so go there to check that out but I did think you guys should know that of course Britney lives in my closet to set me out on the right foot every day.
Now the bathroom. I mean, I get that I am quirky I guess and that things that seem obvious to me might read bizarre to others but I did NOT expect the picture on our window to cause such a stir. But since it did, here’s the deal.
If you can’t tell by looking at the pic, the view from the window is a brick wall. Specifically the brick wall of our neighbors house which is about 3 feet away from us. What you cannot see and what is
brilliantly strategically blocked by the painting is a window into their family room. Since it lines up with the center of our window we couldn’t just do some sort of half window treatment. The painting allows us to keep the window open and get some natural light, but blocks their view. And it makes me laugh, it is like that stern gentleman is inspecting my naked bod every day and is all judgemental like, “Now tell me, what do you plan to achieve today?”
Tomorrow we have another Baby Bliss post, and then Thursday I will finish up the rest of the house! I think I have been pretty good about answering questions, but if I haven’t answered yours yet remind me.
And as always, thanks for all the virtual kisses. I like you all very much.
OH! And also, all of the pretty pictures are the lovely and talented Emily Anderson! The ones with the crappy lighting are me.
