We’ve been in our house for about seven months now, and are just now able to say that we are completely done with all of our projects and unpacking. I’m guessing this probably isn’t an unusual story for most military families, it seems like we get slower about setting up with every move! But, we’re done now, and I’m in love with our master bedroom! Light and airy, the perfect mix of elegance and care free bohemian-ism! Jon thinks it’s a bit girly, but as he’s fond of saying, “happy wife, happy life!” 😉
This room has been quite the project! The walls were originally pink, so that had to go, I wanted something bold, yet relaxing and I’m really loving this green on the textured walls. The black and white accent wallpaper was already here when we moved in and we didn’t want to deal with the hassle of changing it, so I tried to pick colors that would work around it. I think we pulled off a sort of sophisticated yet easy going design!
The cross stitch family portrait on the nightstand was done by Threads and Things and purchased on Etsy. I adore it, and she was super great to work with, combining several inspiration photos in to the perfect rendition of us!
Across from the bed are two floor to ceiling windows that open completely! When we moved in last summer, it just seemed like the perfect place to put a hammock so we could read, lounge, sleep the day away! The kids are obsessed with it as well, frequently sneaking off to our bedroom to hide and swing! (I’m not sure why there’s a small section of black and white tile in our bedroom… go go German quirks lol.)
I like to think of it as my little corner of Hawaii, the glass balls were purchased in Hale’iwa our first year there from a glass blower who’s been in business for 40 years, showing off his craft on the street! The print is another Katie Daisy piece like the ones above the headboard that says “I long for salt air in my hair.” So true, I do, I do.
The room is shaped like an L, so we have a sleeping nook and then a dressing area. The dressers were hand me downs from Jon’s parents, and after several moves they were pretty banged up, so we decided to paint the drawers white and breath a bit of new life in to them. That’s also when I decided to paint our night stands white so they would match and there wouldn’t be so many mismatched wood tones in the room!
I’m pretty much in love with our relaxing retreat, I’m still on the hunt for some hammered bronze candle sconces to put on the walls near the bed, I think that would be super romantic, but I’m thrifty and haven’t found what I’m looking for in my price point yet. 😉
The other area that we finally got all spiffed up was the hallway which had previously been storing stuff we needed to donate. Now, it’s bright and artistic, the perfect area to welcome guests in to our home or for the kids to sneak off and play!
We picked up a wire wall hanger and Ikea and I thought it would be just the thing to use to display some of the kids’ artwork. Aurora could sit and draw all day, so I have a construction paper stack a mile high and was really excited to find a way to display some of them!
The hook to hang the swing on the ceiling was already here on the landing when we moved in, all I had to do was attach our pod swing and it was good to go! I think the house knew that this would be the perfect place to sit and think and dream a bit. 🙂
That wraps up our house tour, after seven months, I’m glad to have finally dwindled down my to do list so I can start the new year fresh! I can’t wait for all the memories 2014 will bring in our beautiful home!
