Welcome to week five of the ORC friends. That means we have just one week left before the reveal. Which means I have less than a week to finish things up so I can photograph and share the results with y'all. I'm officially in panic mode over here. The finished touches are always the hardest part for me. Adding that final layer of warmth without creating unnecessary clutter.
If you're new here be sure to check out week one || week two || week three || week four to see how our master bedroom is evolving into a soothing and spa like master retreat.
I'm going to go ahead and warn you that today's post is picture heavy but I think that's much more fun to see at this point anyway!
Lots of pretty! There really is so much I love about this space. It's incredible how much nicer it is to start and end our day in a room we're really excited about. I know we've come a long way but I've still got a laundry list of things to get this room exactly the way we want it. Clock is ticking!
One major element in the room that I haven't really talked about it our bed. It's kind of the elephant in the room for real. My parents passed it down to me several years ago and Matthew and I love to hate this bed. We both love it on one hand but we hated the tall poles on the foot board. They block the view of the tv and made us feel a bit claustrophobic for some reason.
Second problem, we are adamant about having a tufted headboard. It's just amazingly more comfortable when sitting up in bed. We've been trying for about a year now to merge the two. I don't dislike it but I've just never really loved it. I thought about painting it white but realized yesterday that I needed to get off the fence and just order a platform instead. I love the look of a taller bed with a bed skirt so we'll still place the box-spring on the new metal frame. This bed will go into the attic until Tagg gets a little older and upgrades to a larger bed.
You can see in the next few pictures below that Matthew installed two of the three roman shades I ordered from LoomDecor. I accidentally broke the third one when I was trying to get it out for Matthew to hang so you'll notice the side window still has the blinds up. These things work on tension and it's not wise to take off the clips holding the strings tight. Lesson learned.
Also, I tried to go a wider view for you because that's always helpful for me. After the addition of cozy sitting area with our new chairs and console table, the bed pillow situation is my favorite. My new pillow from ShopMaddie G looks amazing. I had her make a small boudoir pillow to add some punch to the neutral mix. It's and odd size but I just shoved a spare standard pillow into it and it worked out perfectly. I'm also really starting to embrace the blue. I can't wait to see it paired with the Schumacher Garden of Persia.
Also, people always ask where I got my full euro inserts. They're from Pottery Barn and they're incredibly full and keep their shape. I've had these for almost three years now and they're just as full as day one. The shams and duvet can be found here.
And just in case you think I've got all my ducks in a row and will be sipping cocktails through the next seven days I will gift you with this little wall of "oh shit." Oh Shit.
I'm officially starting to stress about getting this all complete and photographed for you in just one week. Yikes! Maybe some cocktails will be needed after all.
Thanks for stopping by! Be sure to check in with the other ladies to see what they've been up to this week.
