Welcome to week three of the ORC friends. If you're new here be sure to check out week one and week two to see how our master bedroom is evolving.
My goal over the next few remaining weeks is to create a soothing retreat. A soft space to relax at the end of the day but with all the special touches of a luxurious seaside spa resort. While my husband and I both want the same end result we don't agree 100% on every detail along the way. So I'm also learning how to execute this so we're both really pleased. But a happy wife makes a happy life. While I take my husband's opinion into consideration, ultimately I'm the one pulling the strings in this makeover and he's pretty much okay with that. He still gets veto power but is letting me make most of the design decisions.
Last week I discussed using my favorite fabric on our bed and many of your agreed that one long pillow would really highlight the pretty pattern. I bought a $9 body pillow from target to test out how we liked the look and feel of a big long pillow in front of the Euro shams and I have to say so far I'm convinced. I plan to cover it in Schumacher's Garden of Persia.
Our new chairs arrived from Arhaus and I'm smitten. Actually it's fair to say I'm in looooooooooove. There is nothing more exciting than actual bona fide adult pieces of furniture that aren't hand me downs and such good quality they will last for years to come.
I moved our storage bench up from the laundry room. I decided to make the switch instead of making a new cover for our old bench. It's a perfect match and right now I feel like I'd be biting off more than I could chew with figuring out hot to make a new seat cushion and slipcover for it.
I've also been playing around with some new art prints that arrived from Minted. I was really excited to try out their art for the first time and was blown away with the quality. I was hesitant to purchase the frames as well but I'm so glad I did because they're really well done and more important they came ready to hang on a wall. Sad to say a few prints I bought over a year ago still haven't been taken to a frame shop.
That's it for this week! Be sure to tune in next Wednesday for more updates. You can also follow along on instagram for even more little sneak peaks on the progress in our master bedroom!
