Where We Live: Master Bedroom

Kelly's Korner is touring master bedrooms today. Check out her post for a list of other blogs.

I threw this post together at the last minute, and I’m not gonna lie; I definitely had to do some cleaning for the pictures. And some of the stuff? It’s on the other side of the bed on the floor. Nursing school, a toddler, and a husband who is picking cotton at all hours of the night is not very conducive to cleaning!

My bedroom hasn't changed much since the last time I posted about it, but I did purchase a new duvet cover. It's Pottery Barn, but I bought it on Ebay. I love it. It's super soft and just the right weight. Plus it looks great with everything I already had in our bedroom.

This is what the bed looked like before. Brad didn't like the brown duvet comforter. He said it was too heavy. It's got great reviews at Target, and I loved it, but I like the new one too. I'll be happy to sell this one if anyone's interested. It was used for just over a year and is in great condition!

Here's the new look.


On the back wall is the framed drawing that was done by a local artist for our rehearsal dinner invitation. The velum paper over the cotton boll turned out really pretty for the invite, and the framed print is beautiful as well.

At the end of the bed is a dresser. I really want to put a big picture of Blair on the wall next to the television, but I can’t decide which one to do!


The entrance wall to the room has another dresser and a small closet for my clothes. Brad’s are in the guest room!


I got these two small oil paintings in Spain when I was there doing my masters coursework. I bought them in the Plaza Mayor in Madrid and surely paid too much for them, but to me they are worth what I paid, because they mean so much to me. I have another one that hangs in our hallway that I got in 1998 on my very first foreign study.

I got this little semi-circular table at Hobby Lobby. I think it's great for the room, and Hobby Lobby has great prices on furniture like this. We didn't have space for two full-sized night stands, so this is perfect. I liked it so much, I bought a table from the same collection for Blair's room.

So that's our room! I hope you enjoyed the tour!
