A Master Bedroom Color Change


Good Morning and Happy New Year!

I'm starting off the year with an earth shattering color change 
in the master bedroom that is long over due.

For years now I've been loving the robin's egg blue that some of you use so freely.
I've been adding it slowly but surely around our house.


Well, a few weeks ago a friend and I attended the McKinney Holiday Tour of Homes
and one house in Tucker Hill inspired me so much that seriously, I could have moved right
in there. Anyway, I knew after seeing her master bedroom that I had to make a change.
Her walls were painted a beautiful bluish green with all cream bedding. 


I'm not about to start painting the walls in our 11' tall bedroom so the color has to come from bedding. We ran across these gorgeous linen shams at Laurie Anna's on Saturday.
The love of my life thought they were perfect too so HELLO new color scheme. :)
And perfect mirror hanging on the wall above the display bed....you come home with me too.

I'm swooning and this change was so easy with just a couple of pillows, a mirror, 
and a pitcher that I already had. :) 
Still need maybe one more pillow with a little pattern on it and the search is on!


My decorating mojo is rejuvenated by a beautiful color.
What's exciting you lately?

Love the linen shams! I'm starting to like blues more and more. I never thought I'd have blue in my master bedroom, but then they sent me the wrong bedding set and it had blue around the edges (instead of brown) so I just went for it and incorporated a few blue items in there and now I love it! Happy mistake, I guess. :) Love your new mirror too!

Jaybird said...

Okay....I'm in love with those shams...the mirror is lovely too, but I am a textile FREAK!!
I'm smiling though, because over the Christmas break, I found a bedding set...brand new in the bag....at the thrift store! It is a lovely pale color like your shams, accented with......................orange! Yikes...this ole' lady has no idea what to do with orange, but I bet I can figure something out :^) It's a very small bit of orange, so it is not so much in your face!
I may have to highjack you to Waco to supervise this escapade :^)
Happy new year and many blessings to you,
J

Oh I do love that color, so pretty and the shams and mirror are stunning. Beautiful room.

I love that color, as well, Stacey, but I've never had much luck pulling it off in our home. We have a lot of gold, burgundy, and brown. Who knows, though, maybe I'll take the plunge and switch things up a little, too.

BEAUTIFUL!!

Kathleen Grace said...

Mmm, I love that blue color, and creamy whites just seem to be perfect for January to lighten things up. What's exciting me? thinking about getting started on decorating the craft room this month!

Gee Singh Newbanks said...

Just beautiful... that soft watery colour is so calming. WANT THOSE SHAMS!!

I never thought I could love anything as much as your red, but this is just stunning! I adore the color and the way you mixed the textures. Everything looks so elegant, yet cozy and comfy! Enjoy your new space and Happy New Year! :)

It looks beautiful and you should see the dresser I just purchased. It's colorful!!! I haven't posted a photo yet. I'm going to take pics this weekend when the lighting is better.

Oh I love this !! It is so fresh and crisp! Our bedroom walls are a similar shade and I have been wanting to get new bedding. I love this shade of blue. Nice work!! Susan

Sherry @ Thrift My House said...

Pretty Pretty! And you can easily change it up again if another color inspires you later on. I've had my bedroom and bathroom walls painted bluish gray for a year now and I'm ready for another color...
But I LOVE change! Have a great day and enjoy your new room Stacey!

I think robin's egg blue is such a restful color. Perfect for a master bedroom, as you have just proven here. It looks so pretty.
Happy New Year, Stacey.

Julie Lilacs and Longhorns said...

Oooohh! I love the change, Stacey! Just gorgeous! That mirror is to die for and I am in love with those pretty shams. It is all so, so pretty!

Happy New Year to you!

Kathy @ Creative Home Expressions said...

Very pretty additions, Stacey, and a great way to bring the color in. We actually have to paint our bedroom. The husband is off in a couple of weeks and has said he will do it then. Now I am trying to decide on the color although I am staying neutral. I just want to go a little darker than the color that is already there. I think it makes it easy to do things like you have done, bring in some other colors when the mood strikes.

I absolutely love your bedroom look! That mirror is fabulous!!
