a master bedroom redo update....finally
i started with white bedding. i swear everybody i talked to told me not to get white bedding. but after wanting it for years i decided to just go for it. i highly recommend white bedding. if you can make it work. it goes with almost anything and you can change up the look and feel so easily. we had some more neutral pillows on at first and that was great as well. when i'm board of how it is now i can change up the pillows and blanket for a totally new look.
i searched and searched for pillows but couldn't find what i loved. i even bought a few...but ended up returning all of them. finally i decided to make my own. the fabrics that i choose are a bit bright but the room really needs it. it's fun and spunky which is what we wanted. sometimes i have to remind myself that my style is bright and thats okay.
my fabrics sat out for about 3 months and finally last weekend i decided to pull out the good ol' sewing machine. i pounded out all the pillows in one day. spence laughed and said "man if i would have known it would only take you one day to make all of those i would have forced you to do it sooner". haha...
so there you have it. the rest of our master room re-do is coming together. it's gone from one of my most hated rooms to my favorite room. i love getting ready for the morning in there and relaxing in there in the late afternoons. just what a master bedroom should be like.
