Master Bedroom

Our new bedroom is currently not finished but this is what our old space looked like.


I wanted my bedroom to be a retreat. I wanted it to be calm and soothing. My husband’s favorite color is green so I picked this soft but bright shade. It is a custom tint paint. I took the pillows in and they color matched it. The bedding is from Pottery Barn and the color was called LEAF.

I stenciled the ceiling in a damask pattern. I love that the ceiling is such a statement with out being too distracting.

I wanted to put “our” song title on the wall to remind us of when we dated. I used vinyl lettering.


I rescued an old brass light fixture from being tossed out. I added beads and pray painted the whole thing white.
The wall opposite of my bed needed some color so I painted this monogram above the dresser.

My bedroom was featured in the August 2011 issue of Better Homes and Gardens.

This is the before and after:
