Friday I shared a shot of our newly painted master bedroom.
Today I’m back to share the rest of the room with you. We chose to go with Sherwin Williams Rain for the color. It is definitely a calming color and really opens up the space. We also gave the trim and doors a new coat of white paint. The previous color was a little more cream and covered with drips and strokes of every previous color the room had been. It’s so nice to have all that covered up. Fresh trim really makes the room feel like a new space!
View from our bathroom…
… as you are entering the room…
… another shot of entering the room…
… from bed looking at dresser and door to bathroom.
Doesn’t the paint make a wonderful backdrop for our furniture? Blue and red are really power houses of color but work well when paired together. Especially as a soft blue and rich dark wood tones. It is so refreshing to wake up in this room every morning!
I mentioned the other day that the room feels larger. In a way it does because we switched the placement of the dresser and armoire.
I have to give credit where credit is due on this one. Michael Luke came up with the idea to switch them. At first I was a little hesitant. Mainly because I enjoyed being able to see into the mirror from bed. Not that I sat in bed and fixed my hair or anything but I just enjoyed the optical illusion the mirror created that the room was deeper than it actually was. So I’ll admit the first few nights it was a little weird sitting and bed gazing at this…
but I’ve gotten used to and really enjoy all the air space it created coming into the room and heading into the bathroom. Visually you are able to see more as you enter the room so the room actually appears larger. It also works great because I have been using the mirror above the dresser when I get ready in the mornings (standing up, not in bed).
Mainly because I like to get ready while Noah naps and since both of our rooms are connected to the bathroom it’s best if I rumble through my makeup bag in our room.
I added a few pieces of McCarty pottery to the room also. They are made from Mississippi mud and have little streaks of blue in them that work well with the color scheme.
I finally got to hang these little beauties too!
We bought them back in April when we paid a little visit to IKEA. This might actually be my favorite part of the transformation. I can’t tell you how long I have wanted lights on the wall for reading.
Before, I has a beautiful lamp that I found at a thrift store several years ago.
I still love it but it wasn’t that great functionally. I always had to get out of bed to turn it off… which is never great when you practically read yourself to sleep. It never looked right sitting closer to the bed because it left a huge void between it and the wall. Trust me… it looked funny. The wall lamps work with the space visually and really help to clear up a little space on my night stand.
It’s hard to get a good shot of the front of the bed. This one is looking at it from my closet.
It also gives you a glimpse of the door to our room and the landing at the top of the stairs.
I mentioned the other day to someone that this furniture reminds me of the furniture from Beauty and the Beast. Partly because of it’s ball and claw feet and the shell designs on it. Can’t you just picture the bed coming to life and walking off. Random I know… but I thought I would share.
With the new arrangement of furniture we are excited to finally be able to showcase this piece of art we bought on our honeymoon to Jamaica.
We love that it has meaning behind it and plan to continue to add art work from our travels together as a family.
So that just about brings our tour of our bedroom to a close. Emma really wanted to show you where her
throne bed sits now though.
It’s snuggled up between the armoire and closet door. A slight move from it’s previous spot underneath the window.
Thanks for stopping by to check out our updated room. We have a few more minor updates for it but are tickled
pink blue to have the major work behind us.
Have you undertaken any major painting projects lately? Do you have a lamp or wall lamp that you read by at night? Or are you one of the hight tech ones that has graduated to a Kindle or iPad? We’re still holding out.

It really is a lovely room. Your furniture is so royal and the Beauty and the Beast reference is spot on! 🙂 Great job!!
Thank you! It’s nice just to get to enjoy it all now.
Wow!! It all looks fantastic! I love the new reading lights too! We’ve been needing to repaint all the trim and doors in our house but that thought is a little overwhelming….maybe just one room at a time like you did would be easier to overcome!
It can be daunting to paint the trim. This was the easiest room for me because I didn’t tape between the baseboard and carpet. Thankfully, my hand was steady enough to get the entire trim without getting any paint on the carpet. It went a lot faster this way.
Very nice! I just love the color – it feels so calming. Great job! I bet you love bed time now. 🙂
The room was beautiful before, but now… the color is gorgeous. Great choice. I like the switch too with the dresser and the armoire. It must be a joy to wake up in your room.
Thank you! It is fun to wake up in this room now. I have been wondering why we never thought to try the furniture like this before. Oh, well at least I get to enjoy it now.
Love the color! Are you totally loving it? I’ve been on my husband to refresh our bedroom forever, honestly, how can it be all peaceful when we are using the same sheets that we’ve had for a million years (ok 7) and 3 kids?
btw- I’d love a close up of your wedding portrait:)
I am absolutely loving it. It has me inspired to repaint the entire downstairs a lighter color. It really opens up the space… especially since I don’t have as many windows as you do in your house.
I took some pics of the wedding portrait and then decided not to include them in the post… camera shy. 🙂 I guess this calls for a post on my wedding portrait.
Pretty. I love how you added the art from your honeymoon. We have a little wood carving from a trip to Costa Rica that I need to hang up somewhere…thanks for reminding me 😉
Thanks! I like art that serves as a reminder of something that you did.

WoW! That’s some serious gorgeous furniture! And I do love the new color! So soothing! Great choices!
Thank you! I used money I had saved up during college to purchase the furniture. We love it but it does make it difficult to find bedrooms that it will fit in.
