Kelly from Kelly's Korner is sponsoring a series of posts called "Show Us Your Life." I love the way blogging gives us a peek into one another's homes. Kelly has asked us to feature master bedrooms today, so here's a look at ours.
Our master bedroom is on the main floor of our house. Actually, this is one of the things we really like about our house--right now we have three kids spread over three floors of this house, but eventually it'll just be the two of us here. . . and if we need to, we can live on the main floor. Having a bedroom that can be reached without climbing any stairs was a Godsend when my son had open-heart surgery--and 10 months later when my husband had open-heart surgery.
My bedroom walls are a soft greyish-blueish-green color called "Mystery Green" by Sherwin Williams. I love the way the white trim and white plantation shutters look against this color. I don't know if I'll ever add any window treatments other than the shutters. Plantation shutters are my favorite window covering of all time. I love the way they look all by themselves.
Now, the bed. I made all the bedding, including the huge coverlet. (I couldn't find a bedspread or duvet cover quite large enough to cover my bed, so I made one using my very elementary sewing skills. Click here if you'd like to read about it.)
A cozy seating area:
Our massive dresser (I love this huge piece and the lamp on top of it--Pottery Barn clearance a few years ago!). This wall still needs some artwork:
And an antique chest of drawers (which holds my gift wrapping supplies, by the way--does anyone else wrap presents on the bed?):
