What Up in The Master Bedroom

Hubby is back safe and sound (thank you for praying for him!!)!!! He did the drive in 39 hrs including sleep, crushing his 44hrs last time (he had to beat his previous time with me of course saying you don't have to, be careful=))!! I'm sorry I've been MIA! We're moving in little by little this week and then all in by Friday=)! I can't wait to catch up =)!

We have been married for almost 6 years (next month=)!) and we've never had a real bedroom set! We have a mattress, one random side table, and tall dresser. We keep talking about getting a bedset and feeling like real adults but we just haven't made the investment yet!

So now that we're moving I would love to redo at least our bedding and maybe even get a bedset! Although we might be moving again in a few yrs and all of our stuff didn't even fit into a 26' moving truck this time!!! But we would love to have a beautiful master bedroom! But then we would look at all the furniture and say oh my gosh we might have to move it all! haha!

And then we think we spend so much more time in other rooms or can upgrade other rooms like the kitchen, etc., and it adds to resale value so that's where we usually put our moneys but it would def be nice to have an oasis of a master... =)!! Do you love your master bedroom?

Here are some quick inspirations I've found so far. We were liking the sleigh bed but the first pic is classic too... or maybe upholstered or no footboard... decisions!!! This is part of the reason we don't have a new one yet!!!

For some reason I'm mostly finding oranges that I like for the bedding...


[the last one to the right is peonies=) I know it's some of your favorites=)]

I've always wanted a little couch or bench at the end of the bed!! So elegant!

We painted our bedroom in AZ a really pretty grayish blue, very relaxing, I'm not sure if that would go with the orange... whaddyou think?

Have you found or have a gorgeous bedset of any kind?? Where did you get it? Any ideas? Colors? I would love your input girls!!!

Okay, so I love the middle bed!!! That is the one I would choose!! As for the bedding I am torn between the last orange one and the middle greyish blue one!! I need new bedding and I really like both of those!!

Sweet Carolina Bride said...

I love the top left bed and the bottom middle bedding! Have fun making a decision! Love your blog, too, by the way!

Casey said...

I like the middle orange bedding too!

I really love the orange bedding. It looks gorgeous with the dark wood you've chosen. Definitely check places like Marshalls. TJ Maxx, etc. They have really nice bedding for great prices.

Very nice bedding and beds you have found!

Kristy said...

I love furniture!! My hubby sales furniture and I have one bedset that I have a major crush on. It is a black/antique look with a canopy. But a straight canopy, not a princess bedroom canopy! LOL
The bed I crush on would look awesome with that blue set on the bottom left!

I love the last pic because it reminds me of our bedroom. We went for the gold walls/orange-ish red and gold furniture. We did the bench at the end of the bed too and it is elegant when you can see it:) (it is also a great place for clothes) I love it but...my girlfriend has the exact same model of a house we have and recently won a bedroom makeover and did it in grayish blueish tones and it is soooo peaceful:) Their room looks bigger being blue....it's beautiful too. So I think either choice will be beautiful, and consider entering those contest at the furniture stores, that is how she won the bedroom makeover! (I always thought it was just a ploy to get your info, but she actually won!)

I love the first one!

ARK said...

ps- tell hubby we are glad he is back safe and sound and was able to shave a few hours off of his trip and still be safe:)

Meagan said...

I think you should indulge yourselves =) Even though you may spend more time in other rooms, the bedroom is where all of the important stuff happens! Like making babies! haha.

We have a nice four poster bed we got when we were married, it is super dark brown. I figure slowly but surely we will add to the set. I want a high-boy/lingerie dresser and matching end tables. I love all of your bedding choices. Get something that looks soothing to you!

Piper Jacquelyn said...

I like the first bed set, the middle gray bedding set, & I think it'd all look great with soft orange walls!

Rachel said...

We have the first bedroom set and love it!! I decorated my room in oranges in browns and I LOVE IT!!

I like the right orange bedding. We got our bedding at Bed Bath and Beyond. I think an awesome bedroom set is often the last piece of furniture we all buy. I'm not sure why. My parent celebrated their 30th anniversary by purchasing a bed set. hmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm.

Jon and Steph said...

Ooooh! Gaw, all of those are so beautiful! But I really like the very first one, I love the dark wood, it looks so classy.

The bedding is a difficult decision.... I love all of them! Good luck choosing!

Rebecca Jo said...

All those are beautiful.. I like the whites/silvers... those sort of neutral beddings can let you put splashes of color around the room & you can change that more easily than a whole bedding set...

All those pictures are super elegant!

Tater Mama said...

Glad to hear that y'all are both back east and starting to get settled! It sounds like you are into some serious nesting these days!

I think everything you showed us is beautiful. And I love the blue-ish/gray idea. We have a bathroom in blue-gray shade, and I swear, I think I could paint the whole house in it. I was surprised because I've never been drawn to those colors right off the bat, but once the paint was up on the walls, I loved it.

We bought a 4-poster bed about five years ago for our anniversary and love it. We figured it's one of the few pieces of furniture that we won't replace, so once we found what we wanted we went ahead and got it.

You'll have to show us pictures of whatever you decide to get!

I love bedsets with low foot boards. A king sized bed is so huge that I find a low foot board makes the bed look a little less imposing in the room. I also LOVE benches or chairs at the end of the bed. My mom had one and we would use it all the time (to sit on while she was getting ready, talking, etc.).

Oranges are alot of fun. Plus they are a happy color. The grays are really cool too though.

Gwen said...

What a fun decision to make. I love choosing new bedding!!! I like the Left bed and the middle gray bedding. It's so relaxing. But I love orange too. We actually have orange touches in our living room. Good luck. Can't wait to see the finished photos. XOXO

Sweet Simplicity said...

I love the bedroom furniture you have picked out. We don't have a bedroom set either. Ours is done in greys right now, but I love those orange bedspreads too. Ah, decorating is stressful!

angie said...

Love your choices. Our bedroom set is very similar to the sleigh bed set you picked. I love the orange sets you've picked. I need to find a new set for my bed. We are moving a few miles so our move isn't a big deal. Yours is a big move, though, isn't it? Glad your hubby made it home safely!

Amanda-The Family News! said...

Our bed is very similar to the middle bed...just a lighter wood and I LOVE it!!!
I am in need of a new comforter set...we just painted our room a soft green - close to a sage.

Newlywed Next Door said...

We have chocolate wood in our bedroom and love it! I'd do the bed without a high footbard because it makes the bed feel less crampped, but that's just me (plus I'm biased about this one b/c my hubby is 6'5"). I think orange could be cool if it was muted orange. Or you could do another color on the wall like and just accent with orange bedspreads and other accent pieces. Just don't paint the ceiling, ceilings are hard to paint and then when you're lying in bed lookig up at the ceiling you'll see the tiny imperfections up there. Ha!

LyndsAU said...

Megan said...

I love sleigh beds! I think they are so beautiful! This is a fun decision to have to make!

Emily said...

Lindsey said...

LOVE the orange, it's so dramatic!

Mrs. Dirnberger said...

I have a bed with a leather back and sometimes I love it and sometimes I HATE it. You have to really watch what you put on it b/c it can look manly

Heather said...

Girl I think any of these bedding choices would be great!! Glad to hear the hubby made it back safe and glad to see you back!! I can't wait to hear what you pick!

Lianna Knight said...

You just put me in a MAJOR shopping mood :) We have a king-sized sleigh bed and I LOVE IT! But, I have NOT been able to find the perfect bedspread yet :( I am reallyg liking the dark brown and light blue colors now...I was thinking of painting our bedroom light blue and then findoing a comfortoer to match. Check out restorationhardware.com...they have a LOT of cool stuff!

My name is Megan... said...

Great article, of course, the Elegant Bedroom Furniture you offer is great, but looking over the Internet I found this, which I think is best, www.spacify.com
