Master Bedroom Update

Sometimes stars just align in ways that are almost too good to be true. Recently, I used all my saved money from not shopping (and then some) to purchase a few things for our master bedroom makeover. With an exciting opportunity through work to get a few discontinued linens at less than cost + an employee appreciation event, I pulled the trigger on some ahmazing sheets, a new duvet, and a cozy coverlet with matching shams. Everything we had before will go into our guest room, and everything from our guest room will go to our studio apartment later this summer for our family visits (win-win!). I thought we had nice sheets from our wedding registry (and we did), but I had no idea what I was missing until I started working a fine linens store! I'm trying to get my mom on board with updating her bedding, too! (ahem!) So, when else in my life will I ever be able to deck out a bed and afford it? Um probably never....so, I went for it and I don't regret it one bit. We will enjoy this and appreciate this for so many many years to come. Just around the same time I was making decisions on linens, an upholstered bed I had been wishing for showed up on Joss & Main, also half the cost of the normal price! Done and done! We've had this project on the backburner for a long while. I'm making it happen and I'm pumped that the ball is rolling. Here's what I'm going for :

I still need to purchase my throw pillows and then we'll decide on a paint color and drapery. Eventually we'll hang up some framed wedding prints and maybe even get a TV to mount on the wall. I've never been for a TV in the bedroom, but I don't hate the idea of Saturday mornings in bed with a movie b/c I'm never going to want to get out of it once we get all these goodies in place!

A great 2nd year anniversary, indeed (the traditional gift is cotton, so you see how those stars aligned, right!? Because, really, the last thing Steven or I needed was another shirt/sweater and I couldn't think of anything better than new bed linens)! Once the room gets pulled together and our new bed arrives, I'll get some actual photos done!

Is your bed one that you absolutely love? Did you know you spend about 1/3 of your life in bed? Why not invest in hotel-worthy coziness!? Call me crazy, but I think it'll be even good for our marriage!

I love it!!!

I gave in a few months ago and let Daniel put a tv in our bedroom. It has been really nice for those lazy days!

The colors and fabrics are perfection. And that headboard is just fab!
