Master Bedroom

We started progress in our master bedroom shortly after moving in. My inspiration came from the Katy Magazine. I was flipping through it before we moved into the house and found this picture.

In our apartments, I always went with the calming blue and cream colors to resonate peace and relaxation. I was in love with the dark color and how these rooms just spoke romance. I wanted that for our master bedroom.

I first chose our paint color and decided on Red Delicious by Glidden but I got it color matched with a cheaper brand, America's Finest.

Although I enjoy the color that came out, I wouldn't use the same brand again for two reasons. The color is more of an orange red than the red red I was looking for and when I clean off the walls, the paint comes off as well.

Overall I was satisfied with how the room turned out. I enjoyed the dark colors all combined.

However I am completely redoing the entire room. I want the room to have a rustic glam with romance all thrown in one.

Here is my list of changes:
• paint the trim
• touch up the walls with fresh paint (same color)
• add crown molding 
• replace the lighting with a chandelier (which I already found from Craigslist)
• add a door to our custom closet (the closet is another post all together)
• custom headboard
• new bedding
• make pillow cases for decor pillows
• new dresser and night stands
• possibly add a built in book shelf to our window seating area.

I don't know when I will ever get to these changes. It may take me a few months (or longer) to get it all completed. My first goal is finding a new home for our bedroom set. I will keep y'all posted with the progresses I make along the way.

How do you decide on the design for a room? Do you choose paint color or fabric first? How often have you changed your mind about a design?

I am sharing this post with Craft-O-ManicThis Gal Cooks, Made in a Day, and A Wise Woman Builds Her Home.

  1. I always find choosing paint colors to be the hardest thing! Good for you for choosing a bold color! :)

    1. I was terrified of the color at first and with our room being small but I am glad I tried it!

  2. I'd love to see the progress. I want to change some things in our place too, but haven't started yet. Found your blog through the Made in a Day social linkup. Would love for you to come and visit me too.
