I Couldn’t Wait . . . A Master Bedroom Refresh

I couldn’t wait.

I had some HomeGoods gift cards that I received for my birthday

burning a hole in my wallet.

I was taking down Christmas decorations and needed a break.

So off to HomeGoods I go.

I really had one thing in mind to get; however, they had nothing of that item in stock.

I then proceeded to the lamp department and there they were

just brought out and placed on the shelves and in the cart they went!

Love these brass and crystal lamps.

They are made by Broyhill.

This lamp reminds me of the brass and glass lamps at Pottery Barn.

And speaking of Pottery Barn.

I was at the mall with my hubby on Christmas Eve. Yes, I know . . . crazy!

We were picking up a few last minute gifts.

Of course, while I was there, I popped into Pottery Barn.

Do you remember these pillows I bought this past summer?

The Mayle bird pattern . . . that I used in the Master bedroom and also the Great Room.

Well, the bedding was on super sale!!

I turned to my hubby and said,

“I think the bedding should fit very nicely into my stocking”

I usually keep my Winter Birds bedding from Pottery Barn til February.

However, when I replaced the lamps in the room,

I thought, maybe now is the time to do a refresh.

I took a break from taking down Christmas decorations

to change out the bedding and pillows in the room.

No need to purchase accent pillows and euro shams

as I had them in my “bedding inventory” ๐Ÿ™‚

It seems like the winter theme decor in the house is “winter birds”

so I shall pretend that these “warm weather birds”

forgot to fly south for the winter.

When decorating for Christmas,

the Master Bedroom is actually the first room I decorate.

You know the old saying that “one thing leads to another”?

Well, by changing out the one thing, the lamps,

it certainly led me to the other . . . to replace the bedding in the room,

as my stocking was getting pretty heavy and needed to come down from the mantel. ๐Ÿ™‚

Are you “winterizing” your home after the Christmas decorations have come down?

I think taking down the decorations and creating new looks to a room

is probably my favorite thing to do. How about you?

Have a wonderful day!!!

    Shirley, I love your finds. I’m so glad that our HG is only 12 minutes away because I love that place! We have the same headboard (chuckle!) in our guest bedroom. Unfortunately, we couldn’t utilize a footboard because that room is just 13×13 and the bottom posts look too massive for that space. I think the pediment on the headboard is the prettiest I’ve come across thus far…love it!

  10. Those lamps are fabulous! And the bedding is beautiful.

  11. Love the new bedding, Shirley! It’s sure to chase away winter blahs. ๐Ÿ™‚ I simply must refresh my rooms after Christmas or I would be sad with all the sparkle gone. Plus it’s a good time to clean and declutter! Yep, I’m cleaning out stuff!

  12. Very pretty Shirley! This is the same color scheme I am putting together in the great room. I bought two of the animal print pillows for the sofa. Can’t wait until the new chairs arrive.

    I need a trip to Home Goods, too!

  13. Hi Shirley, your bedroom refresh is gorgeous. I love every detail and your lamps are stunning. I have similar lamps but with rubbed oil bronze for the metal. I love the slim lines on the night stands. Your color theme is beautiful. I’ve been refreshing in all my rooms too and doing the furniture shuffle!! Enjoy and think I’ll take a break and head to Home Goods. LOL
    Happy weekend ahead!

  14. I must tell you the truth…when I first saw that pattern (throw pillow on your loveseat and the other pillows)back a few months ago (I think) I wasn’t too crazy about it. But seeing it in the big scale of your bedding and how it ties in to the print hanging above your bed,the bench cushion, etc. you’re a GENIUS! The colors play off everything, including the paint on the walls! I shouldn’t have doubted you, I see that now. *smacks own hand* Trust. TRUST! Love those birds~now *Be glad your feet are much smaller than mine, I would steal those shoes. Just sayin. ; )

  15. mine too. your room always looks so gorgeous. perfect retreat! Now get back to work.:)

  16. The new bedding is lovely…as are the lamps! I don’t refresh….I try new arrangements. Easier that way…and a good opportunity for me to see what I do and don’t use…so I can simplify! ๐Ÿ˜‰

  17. Shirley you bedding is beautiful. I have a similar bed – Bombay – that I love. I bought it second hand and didn’t quite know what to use with it. My bureaus are very old and truly don’t match the bed but I will be on the outlook for new bureaus. I also made a bed skirt for the bed – the drop is so high I couldn’t find anything that fit but I love the way your bed looks without a skirt. I think I am going to have to try that. Of course that means I will not be able to hide anything under the bed (that will be our secret).

  18. I always think ,Shirley can’t do anything to top her decorating but you just keep doing everything I love.:) Your bed always looks so beautiful and I’m just noticed you don’t use a bed skirt.I use one but have thoughts of taking it off when I have my carpet cleaned.

  19. Looks really good, great choice. I’m done with taking down the Christmas decorations, but everyone’s in a while I find something else that is Christmas and needs to be packed. So I keep one tub just for that reason and put the items in and then list on front of box.

    Have fun refreshing your rooms. Feels good doesn’t it?

    Have a terrific weekend. We are sure getting the rain that we so badly need, but I am not complaining, bring it on.


  20. On super sale??!! I am gonna borrow that ๐Ÿ™‚ Looks beautiful, Shirley! The lamps and bedding are such pretty accents. Great finds. I am itching to refresh. Cheers, L

    Beautiful room,Shirley! I love the new bedding. What a sweet stocking stuffer! The lamps are gorgeous! I have always thought you have the prettiest bedroom. Have you ever shared the name and brand of your carpeting? So elegant. Can you tell I just love the whole room?!

  26. You scored on that bedding…just beautiful. Love the color combinations. The lamps looks good with that bling on your chandelier.

  27. Does it count that I got new sheets for my bed today?

    Hi Shirley, love your house and all your ideas! Love, love your shoes in this post too! A question. The cheetah pillow cover is a 24″ cover but it looks like a smaller pillow insert was used. I like it and just want to know what size insert you have in it.


  33. They’re beautiful, Shirley! Oh I love the picture of you & hubs:) And of course the leopard print is simply marvelous:D
