The Master Bedroom Makeover for Fall

The Master Bedroom makeover for Fall is always on the agenda

when decorating my home for Fall.

I looked in the linen closet where I store my duvet covers and shams

and chose the Maya Bird pattern by Pottery Barn.

The colors in the design were perfect  for Fall

still maintaining the blues and apricots l (or should I call it blush)

that are the constant colors in the room.

I switched the pillows around a bit for another look.

I found new apricot pillow covers ( Pottery Barn, Cotton Basketweave)

on super clearance … $11.75 each! Love the clearance bins!

At that price, I purchased another pair of them in another color for future use.

Apricot is one of the the accent colorsI used  in this room for Fall,

which includes the throw (another clearance item from last year).

You may have seen a peak of the sitting area in the above image.

Added navy and apricot velvet pillows to the blush sofa.

with a navy throw for cuddly comfort.

that flank the bay window/sitting area.

I have featured them in the past when I  bought them at a fabulous price.

After some research and upon a reader’s knowledge of them,

they are vintage Italian. One of them still  has the manufacturer’s metal tag on it.

Every room needs a pumpkin for Fall.

I found this pumpkin at the grocery store. I bought it totally for its stem!

A great stem! … Worthy of being perched on a silver compote!

A velvet pumpkin sits on top of a brass candlestick on the bedside chest.

The beautiful bowl with my monogram was a gift from a friend and fellow blogger,

Christy, from 11 Magnolia Lane.

I purchased the vintage oval mirror at the same antique shop

where I purchased the gold and crystal sconces. One that I frequent on my travels.

I love the way the mirrors in the room reflects views from every angle.

I love this Maya Bird pattern….such a happy pattern filled with beautiful Fall colors.

My duvet cover is placed on the bed as you would a comforter,

then folded back at the end of the bed . . . so that it is ready to be pulled up

at nighttime as we both love the extra layers.

  30. Beautiful fall bedding from PB. Colors look both warm and fresh together. ? Love the accent animal print pillow too! Well done! As we honker down here in Florida I may just work on doing my master tomorrow. I have some great fall accents and an animal print pillow that may work. Thanks for the inspiration. I’m 10 miles from the ocean, safe zone, so if we don’t lose power Ill end up baking. If we do lose power, I can decorate and incorporate some of these ideas! Hope we all stay safe. ?

  31. Just Beautiful…..your decor taste is exquisite! I love color in every room and classic elegance! What a find on those Italian sconces!!

  32. bobbi duncan says

    I love blue and apricot together! Of course, you know I love your home and decorating talents, and I think this is a very sophisticated and elegant way to bring fall into the master bedroom. I don’t have seasonal changes of bedspreads, but sure love drooling over pics of everyone who does. Hugs!

  33. Always love seeing what you come up with for the seasons Shirley. Just beautiful!
