Project Master Bedroom. . .

Our Master bedroom has become a bit of a "catch all" room and this year I want to change that.

I want it to be a place where we can completely relax and retreat to.

It's been neglected for so long and I want to make it a project for the upcoming year.

So, this is what I am looking at, thus far.

I love how bright and cheery it is.

Since we have the wood paneling walls, I want something to offset that.

I think this would be PERFECT.

Of course, this is Pottery Barn.

So, my challenge it create a similar look for a fraction of the cost.

I already have a quilt that is somewhat similar to this design.

Here's mine.

Of course, I would love to just order the PB one but it's not in the budget, right now.

I also found these baskets at Pier One that are close enough fit for me and WAY cheaper than the $129 price tag of PB's Beachcomber basket.

These are a bargain at $12 for the small and $18 for the bigger one.

These aren't in the inspiration picture above but I came across them and love them but at $129 a pop, it's not gonna happen.

But, I could use two of these Ikea Barometer lamps for $39.99 a piece and place them on bedside tables!

I also love these curtains from Ikea and think they would brighten our room up nicely.

You can't tell in the pic but they have a really pretty jacquard print woven on them.

I also see old shutters frequently at local shops, so I am sure I can get some of those and maybe hang them on the wall for a pop of color for pretty reasonable.

It's a start, right!?!

Oh and did you happen to notice that the bed's not made?

Maybe, I should cross that resolution off my list! ; )

You can DO it! It'll be FABULOUS and you'll love it!! I've been wanting to pay more attention to our bedroom as well. It's so easy to just let it go on the list of decor priorities since it's not 'seen' much by you and your spouse. (ours is the room that gets all the extra rif raf from the house'dumped' when we're expecting company...eeek!!!)

Do you have a habitat for humanity Re-Store near you? I have been swooning over shutters like the one in your inspiration pic and I've seen several at the Re-Store in our town (I think they were once old closet sliding doors) I want to pick some up soon and give them a good painting treatment and put somewhere in our living room to add a little dimension!!

Make sure to post your before and afters!

Your room will be gorgeous. i can't wait to see it when it is all finished. AND honestly, I LOVE your quilt more than the PB one. IMO....such much prettier.

I have the same goals this year! I want my bedroom to feel like a retreat instead of a storage closet, lol. Your inspiration photo is gorgeous! And I love the bedding you have!
