Finally, it’s just about time to makeover my master bedroom. It’s been decades since this room has gotten the even the tiniest bit of facelift love! So this fall Bobby and I will be working hard to have a lovely sanctuary of a master bedroom! Not only will the master bedroom be getting made over from the flooring up but so will the sitting room that is open to the bedroom. Here’s what we are planning…
Today’s Decorating Tips And Tricks episode is about STYLING A HUTCH IN FRESH WAYS! Wow, this is for all of us who own a hutch! We are talking to YOU!!!! We have tons of ideas today!!!! And we had so much fun too! Come on over and laugh and learn right along with us!

Okay! Here is the mood board for my master bedroom… and an idea of what I hope my bedroom will eventually look like!
starburst mirror || padded headboard || gold lamps || night stands || gray pillows || yellow lumbar pillow || raw silk woven bedskirt || quilted bedding || Fioravanti Settee || gilded mirror || spindle lamps || succulent || double dresser || garden stool || rug ||
Here is how the bedroom and sitting room are laid out. This is NOT to scale, but it will give you a good idea of the configuration.
I put the bed in the room because I have tried it on every wall and this is the best place for it. The rooms are a good size and can handle some larger furniture.
I want our master bedroom and sitting room to be a calm sanctuary and a place Bobby and I can spend our evenings.
The sitting room will have a sofa, coffee table, and two chairs as well as a sofa table behind the sofa with lamps. A tv in bookshelves will sit on the wall on the left side of the room. And I’ll probably add a floor lamp for more light.
We already have the sofa, chairs, and tv and I’ve started to look for the other elements as well as a rug for the sitting room.
Now, back to the bedroom….
This month we are having hardwood floors installed in the bedroom and sitting room to match the rest of the house. Thank goodness I’ll be getting rid of the 27 boxes of hardwood flooring I’ve been living with for almost a year!
The walls will be painted Simply White by Benjamin Moore. I LOVE this pretty soft white!
I’m picking a soft neutral linen to make drapes for the room. And we are having custom blinds installed.
I was originally going to repaint my mahogany rice carved bed but I am still in an air cast (yes, it has been 8 months now… hopefully only 4 more weeks to go) and it’s a little hard to move around! So for now, a big painting project like a bed is out!
I did find a very beautiful padded headboard in a nubby neutral fabric. I love its tucks and covered buttons! And it’s rather tall, another big plus! Did I mention it was so inexpensive!!!! Yes, it was! I love a great piece of furniture at a bargain!
I’ve made a starburst mirror to go over the bed. Sorta like the one below. It was my inspiration! This mirror is gorgeous. You can see my version next week.
The inspiration for the colors in the master bedroom came from this stunning Italian Revival Fioravanti Upholstered settee from Soft Surroundings. This fabric makes me weak in the knees! Isn’t it wonderful to find a fabric you love? I hope I can get a few yards of it to make pillows for the bed!
I featured the settee in a guest room refresh a couple months ago but I am moving it to the master bedroom.
Here is a closer look at this fabric and detail…
The colors I’ll use in the room will come from this glorious fabric!
I have lots more to share but I’ll save that for another day!
