All In The Details--Master Bedroom Remodel

This is a follow-up to this post on our newly remodeled master bedroom.
The bedroom color inspiration came from a duvet cover 
 bought at Macy's a couple years ago.  
The blue paint on the walls is called "My Painter Wants to Shoot Me."  
In other words, it was a custom mix that we played with over a few days.  
 In the end, I would say it is a cross between Benjamin Moore's Glass Slipper and Blue Lace.

The ceiling is Benjamin Moore's Super White.
The painting below is of Newport Beach's Back Bay.  

 The pick stitch pillow and matching quilt are from Pottery Barn.  
I took the pillow to our local monogram shop for the over sized monogram. 
The gas fireplace is original but we replaced the grout and added new cement logs.  
The petite sun burst mirror is from Wisteria.
The crystal lamps were from Williams Sonoma Home.
The ivory linen drapes were custom made (with a Parisian pleat) and a 
blue velvet border that matches the newly recovered bergere chairs. 
All the fabric was purchased at a discount fabric outlet--more about that here
The silver drapery rods and rings are from Restoration Hardware.

The crystal chandelier was given to us by my mother.  
It was in our home while I was growing up.
I bought this bench at an antique store in Florida and recently recovered it with a 
Kravet raffia fabric and nail heads.  The carved legs were originally from an old bed frame.
The dhurrie rug was a deal from Joss and Main.  
It came out darker than I expected from my computer screen
(non-returnable--something to remember when ordering from there) 
but I think it is fine.
The end tables are from Noir Furniture and the magazine baskets are from Target.
The rustic wide planked wood floors are from Provenza Old World Classics.  
This floor is throughout the house and is relatively easy to maintain and
gives us the casual, beach cottage feel.

Thanks for visiting.

  1. Thanks for the details. I mulled over that Joss & Mann rug - looks great.

  2. Beautiful! Very serene and calming. I typically don't favor blues in decorating, but your bedroom has changed that! I love the subtle wall color and how the linens and the rug work together. Very nice!

  3. Thanks so much for this post. I have been looking at the Sandalwood quilt and shams at PB but wasn't sure about the quality. Once I saw them on your bed, that was all the endorsement it needed. I went straight to their website and ordered them. I like a summer/spring look and a fall/winter look. With the proper pillows, this will be the fall/winter. Unfortunately, my PB coupon had expired. I follow you regularly and have you on my side bar. And by the way, I have a pillow fetish, too.

  4. I love all the details..I had a feeling that the painting was of a local spot...it's perfect. The details on the bench...gorgeous and how wonderful to have a chandelier from your childhood home. I love that petite sunburst mirror. I think that would be perfect on my daughter's collage wall in her sitting room. Love the over sized monogram and the paint color looks perfect and you seem way too nice to annoy your painter!

  5. Thanks for the sources:) our master bedroom is upholstered in same fabric as your bench. I never tire of it. I have been eyeing the PB quilt , I may have to take the plunge.

  6. The rug was one of my favorite items in the room - I think it looks great. Lots of natural light flowing in...a true getaway of a master.

  7. I love the calming effect of the blue walls and striking white ceiling! This is such an adorable makeover, and all your colors are beautifully matched. I could never dislike any in this room , because they are my fave! Thanks for sharing your makeover. Hugs! Loretta

  8. Beautiful! Buying rugs online is so tricky but I think this one looks great.

  9. Mary Ann,
    You have been busy!
    Thank you for sharing this gorgeous room!

  10. Thanks for all the details! Your bedroom is just gorgeous! Love the large monogrammed pillow! And the chandelier is so special - awesome that your mom gave it to you. Thanks for sharing.

  11. Beautiful details! I love the rug color.

  12. I love everything about your bedroom. The soft colors, the floors, all the perfect accessories, and that lovely chandelier - I bet you can't wait to go to bed at night. You've done a fabulous job putting it all together!

  13. Mary Ann, your master bedroom is stunning!! So soft and soothing and perfect for a "retreat". :-) Your attention to detail is so obvious and you definitely have a gift!

  14. This room is gorgeous, right down to the last detail. The bedding is stunning!
    Thanks for sharing Mary Ann,

  15. Enjoyed reading all the details. My favorite is the chandy b/c of the sentimental value. I must have missed Joss and Main the day that rug was on there! Lovely!

  16. Beautiful choices--I really love it all, but the lamps and the floors are on my list now!

  17. Mary Ann,
    This master bedroom is just breathtaking and so chic! I love the soft calm look. You really did a beautiful job from the paint colors to the chandy. Just gorgeous!

  18. Dear Mary Ann,

    Looks wonderful. Enjoy!

    Thank you for your recent visit. I just found
    your commment in my spam. Not sure why that would have happened.

    Have a wonderful day.



  19. This is such a gorgeous room. Relaxing and elegant. Exactly how a master bedroom should be!

  20. Wow, it turned out amazing!! I love the wall color. The bench is awesome and so is the rug. What a fabulous job you did.

  21. i really love the design on the pillow cases and the chandelier!<3

  22. Really so beautiful! What a relaxing retreat. Love it! I'm enjoying my new candle right now and you are so sweet to include my vignette in one of your presentations. I feel so honored. Thank you!

  23. Mary Ann, your room turned out so beautiful. I love the drapes and those chairs. The colors are so calm and restful. Love it all!

  24. Maryann, its such a beautiful and tranquil space. Love that pale blue on your duvet, its as you know one of my favorite colors and will be in my own master bedroom. Just beautiful, it must be like walking into a cloud at the end of a long day!

  25. So crazy...I bought that same rug [on Overstock I think] for a client and it was definitely darker and a slightly different color that it appeared. We ended up using it in another room so it was all good. Your room is beautiful and peaceful.

  26. Thank you, Mary Ann, for being so generous with your sources. The room is just beautiful and tranquil.

  27. Oh, I was waiting for that paint color! I loved the name you gave to it though! :-)

    It's so nice of you to take the time to prepare this post giving us all the sources. Thank you, sweetie.

    Have a wonderful day!

  28. Love it! Love the calm feeling of the room. Off to make my bed and dust my room :)

  29. Your bedroom is absolutely gorgeous. I love the little monogrammed pillow & the comforter. Do you love your hardwood in your bedroom? Our carpet needs to be replaced & I think I would really rather have hardwood.

  30. I always love Pottery Barn linens!! I looked at the rug as well.The depth of the color is really nice (IMHO) it gives the room richness! Love it all down to the bench legs, perfect!

    Oh I have a Designer Pillows Giveaway! I hope you will join! ( a great resource as well)

  31. Love everything about your beautiful master bedroom..
    so peacefully serene!
    thanks for sharing..

  32. Mary Ann, I love the rug, the bench and all the fabric you choose. Great job! thank you so much for following us and the sweet comments. I am adding you to my blog roll. Thanks

  33. Your paint color's name reminds me of a country song, entitled "How can I kiss your lips at night, after you chewed my ass out all day long"!

    Seriously, it's a gorgeous room and I'm sure you're thrilled with it, as you should be!

  34. Oh wow that's what I imagine heaven looks like. The paint color is sooo pretty (definitely worth the evil eye from your painter) and I love all the details! The rug is fab, the lamps I have coveted for years and the sun mirror is perfection above the square fireplace. You are so friggin' talented!

    Have a GREAT weekend!!

  35. Mary Ann,
    Your bedroom is so beautiful! I love all the personal touches from that gorgeous chandelier to the perfect monogram on the pillow! And I love the rug (and the cute dog on it!) Great job!

  36. FYI...you've probably gotten it a thousand times already, but I nominated you for the Versatile Blogger award :)

  39. Great job! I love the simple fireplace and that rug. It's so restful and soothing.

  40. Beautiful! I love to see makeovers!

  41. I think the darker rug is perfect. Something to provide a little contrast to all the lovely light blue and white. But all that matters is what you think!
    Wonderful reveal!

  42. The master bedroom in my house is practically the same color and I have been searching for a duvet and I love what you have. I am sad to hear you got it a couple years ago. Anyway love the lamps rug and pillows. Ahh this is just what I am looking for in our master.

  43. I love your attention to detail, Mary Ann. Your master is beautiful.....this room has such a nice feel to it!

  44. Hi there,
    I was wondering if you could share your flooring choice of the Provenza Classics? I love your blog and am inspired by your choices of style with quality!! Am doing pricing and research for wood floors and getting mixed messages about engineered hardwood versus solid hardwood over concrete slab, etc.. Thank you agin for sharing your home with us readers!

    1. It's Old World in Oak...one of the lighter shades (not sure which--but it is getting even darker with age). We really like the engineered wood at the beach with al the moisture...and we are on a slab, too.

    2. You are awesome - thank you so much! Thanks so much for sharing your style and home/design with all of us blog 'stalkers':) Thank you again.

  45. Hey friend! You’ve got a interesting weblog here. I truly liked it. Very nice post. I just stumbled upon your blog and wanted to say that I have really enjoyed browsing your blog posts.


It's SO nice to hear from you!
