House Tour – Master Bedroom

I use the term “Master” loosely. This room is pretty small, and I’m sure it doesn’t help that we own a King-sized bed. We try to make the most of the space we have though, and while it’s cramped cozy, I love this room.

Here’s an overview shot, looking in through the main doorway. I DIY’ed the capiz shell chandelier (I bought the shells on eBay), the upholstered headboard, and the burlap window treatments. The roman shades are from JC Penney. The paint color is Perfect Taupe by Behr, which I love.

The left side is Mister P’s side. That doorway leads to our (one) bathroom. Our bedframe is the Malm from IKEA. I covered the headboard with grey corduroy fabric. It’s also tufted, but you can’t tell in these pictures because the headboard is so low. The height actually works well in here though, because of the height of the windows. Our duvet cover is from Crate and Barrel – and it’s one of my most favorite things ever. The long white pillow is from Target, and the typographic shams in the back are EIVOR ORD, from IKEA.

Here’s a close-up of the wall on Mister P’s side. We have a couple of framed wedding photos (Rochelle Mort), and our ring bowl from Paloma’s Nest, is stamped with our wedding vows: “With all that I am, with all that I will become, with this ring I marry you,” our names, and wedding date. The Coney Island print on the left is from Etsy seller VisuaLingual.

The Boston Terrier print above the bed is from Brian Rubenacker, and looks exactly like our baby girl Abbey. The plastic T and copper P were found on Etsy. The (heavy) metal E was a gift. The lamps are vintage and were found on eBay and spray painted bright yellow. The closet doors used to be mirrored. We flipped them around and added the wood trim and fabric panels.

I found this lot of vintage keys on eBay and framed them in this shadow box from Marshall’s. The papercut art on the right is an excerpt from a poem by e.e. cummings, and was made by British paper artist Julene Harrison. It was a gift from me to Mister P on our first wedding anniversary.

Our dresser and nightstands are both Malm from IKEA. We added the brushed nickle bin pulls (purchased on eBay). The stool to the right of the dresser is the Benjamin (from IKEA…are you sensing a theme here?!), and I desperately want to give it some sort of fun, funky paint treatment.

The jewelry display was once an escort card holder for our wedding. I made it out of an old frame (spray painted), fabric, and twine. George the Terrier holds some of my bracelets.
