Master Bedroom Reveal

Yesterday I showed you my dream Florida room, if you missed it, you can read about it here. Today I've decided, since I never showed you my master bedroom, to come back to reality and to give you a tour of my master! Looking at this picture, I just realize that the color palette is very similar in my real room that the color palette I choose for my dream FL room! The aqua, the whites, the grays and the golds!

I started with this tan color on the walls. And with a striped cover on the bed. 

But I grew very tired of both and I was looking for a more soft and neutral color palette. 
Back in the fall, I painted my kitchen walls Agreeable Gray by Sherwin Williams. I loved that color so much that didn't stop and carried the color all thru the house!! Yup, that end up being a crazy painting project! But I am so glad I did it because I love the color!! 

I changed the striped bed cover for a white matelasse and I purchased the porcelain blue toile duvet cover and sham from Pottery Barn. The white pillows are antique and I brought them from my mom's house in Spain. You can read about them here

I am using an antique small dresser as a night stand and a round table as the night stand in the other side of the bed. 

I don't have a headboard yet, I hung these couple of cherubs painted by my mom above my collection of pillows. The whole thing is acting as a headboard until I find one I feel in love with!

Do you see that wooden bench under the window? well, let me tell you that story. I was very pregnant with my daughter  when I had the brilliant idea of a built in seating bench to put there. So I measured the window and off I went with my big belly to Home Depot to buy the lumber! I bought a sheet of plywood and give the dimensions to an associate who cut the wood for me. It was quite the ordeal for a prego lady to load all that wood into my car, but where there is a will there is a way, you know! Once at home me and my 4 year old son, at the time, got to work. I never built anything like that before. I had no idea what I was doing. I used wood glue and a bunch of screws. And till this day the bench is still standing!! Pregnancy hormones, perhaps? Whatever possessed me to do it, it came out pretty good, don't you think? ;)
Some day, I would like to replace it with a Louis XV style settee, but until that settee crosses my path, the bench will do!

Another thing in my wish list is a bench or a couple of french chairs to put at the end of the bed! Slowly but surly, I will get there!
Thank you so much for stopping by! Have a fabulous day!
