Our Master Bedroom Transformation Has Begun

We started our master bedroom makeover yesterday. Over the past few months, I've been gathering ideas of what I would like this room to look like, and started collecting a few things as I saw them. Remember this lamp that I told you about in a previous post. It will work perfect with the theme that we've chosen.

My husband and I love the coast and anything to do with it....lighthouses, seashells, starfish etc. We also enjoy taking a lot of photos. I'm hoping to incorporate some of them into our room. We both agree that we want it to be a place that is relaxing and romantic, light and airy not dark and dreary.

Here are some of the colors that I'm using for inspiration.

Who would ever guess that there are so many different shades of blue, greens and greys!

The parsonage we live in has very small bedrooms ~ so small, in fact, that we couldn't have all our bedroom furniture in one room without it being over crowded.

A couple of years ago, my husband lovingly gave up his office that measures 20' x 9 1/2' so we could have all our bedroom furniture in one room. Here are a few shots of the room before we started.... The room is very narrow making it difficult to arrange furniture. I would love to place the cedar chest(That my husband made for me as a wedding gift) at the foot of our bed, but this is impossible since it we only have a 2 1/2' walk way at the foot of the bed. I would place it in another room in our home, but there again the parsonage is small and absolutely no other place to put it.

As you can see in the photo, the room is very dark (making it difficult to take photos), so our plan is to lighten it up and make it appear larger. I'm hoping over the next few weeks to show you the progression of this room transformation. Please come back and visit and see the updates!

Have a great day!
