Many of you know that I live in a 115 year old farmhouse and over the last few years I have been updating our rooms one by one. This last year I updated my master bedroom.
I had always loved dark colors, as you can see in the before photo's but now I want light and cool. I can't believe how outdated this is...lol.
I had been looking at all different kinds of color schemes on Houzz and Pinterest and decided I wanted to use gray for the walls with stressed black furniture and a touch of gold for warmth.
I chose Valspar Filtered Shade in eggshell. It looks a little blue in the photo below, but it is a true gray.
The next few photo's are some I took from Pinterest as inspiration. Aren't they pretty?
I knew I wanted to use a touch of gold and needed an inspiration starting point and that's when I found this Laura Ashley fabric. I bought enough to make two large pillow shams.
It is a beautiful linen fabric with a nice soft feel. I have a white quilt and found a beautiful Ralph Lauren duvet cover and bedskirt trimmed in black.
My dresser was a true find from a local consignment store, a Henredon dresser. All I needed to do was prime it, paint it black (I used Olympic Black Magis D58-6 in eggshell) and destressed it a little in brown. I used the hardware that was originally on it. It turned out beautiful.
I had been holding onto an old set of french doors I found in one of our barns and put them on the wall above the dresser. They were perfect.
My deer print chair and ottoman I did a post on earlier is also in my room. The color just happened to be perfect. I had a lion head stand and beautiful wall clock from Ballard I used with the chair. The wreaths in the windows I put up one Christmas and loved them, so I left them year round. I am currently in search for a pretty rug and upholstered headboard that will complete the room. I will blog to let you see what I find.
