Home Tour: Master Bedroom After

Here is our master bedroom when we first moved in to our Texas home:
Doesn't it look "master"? ;)



We replaced all the carpet in the house ASAP and painted the walls Kwal's "Crisp Khaki". I bought the comforter set from Walmart and put up some temporary window mistreatments, but wanted a little different look about a year later

Here it is now:
We replaced the ceiling fan, painted our cedar chest heirloom white, used our Target black furniture, turned the existing comforter over to the solid side and used most of the existing pillows, put the bed on risers for additional storage underneath, (didn't quite get to making the bedskirt longer did I?) and bought 2 cream embroidered shams at TJMaxx for 9.99 to give it more of a custom, not out of the bag look.
I found the fabric at an after summer crazy fabric clearance~it's actually outdoor sun and shade fabric, but it looks all the same and has a nice, heavy crisp feel to it.
I cut, ripped, hot glued some of the edges over, and used Nester's fold, clip and poof treatment at the top. I found the blinds on the windows for $5 each at a yard sale, so the fabric was purely to dress the windows, not cover them.

The headboard.
The headboard.

Again, I wanted a more custom look, and it didn't turn out exactly as I had imagined, but I'll tell you what I did and what I wish I would have done tomorrow. :)

Happy Wednesday!

  4. Hey, I like it! It looks very nice. The before looked nice, too. But I understand how we all like a little change now and then. The before the before was when it was really in need of your designer touch! You did very well making it look great!

  20. Your room looks so inviting. I've been wanting to do something similar to our head board. How did you do it?

  23. SO pretty. . . so elegant. Do you miss it? Or are you ready for a new adventure?

  24. I love the colour combo too. That black Waverly fabric is very pretty. Instead of getting a new bedskirt, you could always add another layer of fabric (sewn or fabric-taped) to the exisiting one. I did that for a friend and she used bedsheets for the fabric.

  26. Melissa,
    The room looks beautiful. I love that you used the solid side of the comforter and moved the "pattern" to the window treatments. It looks cool and crisp, and just lovely.
    Thanks for sharing,

  27. I love seeing a room's evolution. There's the after, the after after, and the after after after. You get the idea. It just keeps going. I love the new black & white curtains, the solid bed spread and the cream matlasse pillows. Those make the biggest difference for me. Thanks for sharing!

  28. It's really beautiful. I just love using black (even though my husband isn't as fond of it as I am).

    Great job!

  34. What a beautiful room Melissa!! I've had a hard time figuring out what to do with a window in my office - a desk butts right up to one side, I like how you did your curtains to one side - do you think that would look ok with only one window? like you I just want the curtain for looks, not to cover the window

    Happy New Year!

  37. It is just gorgeous!! I love the colors and that duvet is so pretty with the texture! Did I miss somewhere what is that made out of?

    I also love the drapes! I want to redo my bedroom in black and cream. I just love the pop of the black!

    Beautiful!

  45. I love the paint color you chose.  I would love to paint our master bedroom that color but I don't live near a Kwal Paint store.  Do you know the "recipe" for that color?  Thinking maybe Lowe's could reproduce it.  Any help?

    If you go to colorcharts.org and type in crisp khaki, it will show the closest matches. Cool huh? http://www.colorcharts.org/ccorg/resources/results.aspx?find=U9PQ-3NEL-QV85 It looks like Linen by Behr is a close match, or Lowes should have it in their database. Good luck!
