So the previous owners of my house tended to go for country decor. So when I moved in, even though I didn't completely know what direction I wanted to go in, I started painting to to erase the country from my mind.
This is was the Master Bedroom looked like when the previous owners lived here.
The second I took possession (before moving in) I painted three rooms starting with the Master. I also added shades and that solo piece of art on the wall. I picked that out and had it framed living in an apartment a couple years earlier. I love it and it's how I chose my paint color.
This is what the room has looked like for three years. Definitely better than country, but it's pretty barren.
A couple month ago I ordered a new bed (KING - I don't care if it's takes up the whole room). It will arrive next week. In preparation for it's arrival, I started looking for new bedding and curtains (finally). I found the comforter set a Macy's on vacation because Omaha doesn't have a Macy's :(.
Curtains have been a struggle. I refuse to spend a lot of money but nothing has worked with the comforter. Walking through Garden Center these caught my eye.
Yeah I have a red addiction. I picked them up because I loved the slight pattern (seen in the second picture). Lo and behold, the back of this lovely red fabric looked like this
I was pretty sure it would work and even if it didn't - The Garden center had two 2 yard pieces for $5.99 each. So even if the gray was totally wrong I would only be out $12.
Anyway, here's the master bedroom with new comforter set and curtains (same bed).
I still have quite a bit to do, but at least now I have a direction. I probably will bring a couple pops of red into the room - possible a pillow and/or painting an entertainment stand. I also need something on the wall above the bed, but that will have to wait until the new bed arrives so I can be sure of the size.
