Hello Dear Readers!
It’s been a very hectic week here dealing with decisions, decisions
for the new house.
Seems as though when I think I pretty much have it all together,
then something comes up . . . like a higher estimate than anticipated,
then back to the drawing board to make more decisions.
In the meantime,
I found some time to do a bit of a refresh in the Master Bedroom.
MASTER BEDROOM REFRESH WITH BLUE AND WHITE
The very first thing I did was to create a floral arrangement for the room.
I already had some great faux yellow roses in a Mint Julep cup in the room,
so adding yellow to the blue and white container and hydrangeas
seemed to be the perfect pop of color.
Have I mentioned that Double Peony Tulips have become
one of my favorite Spring flowers this year?
I am on my third dozen of these tulips and I plan to buy more soon!
Hopefully they are still at Trader Joe’s!
Using this blue and white tray as a little vanity tray
that is on the nightstandnext to the flower arrangement.
P.S. I miss my plantation shutters!
Another addition to the Master Bedroom is this beautiful table skirt.
It is the table skirt that I purchased from Amy of Maison Decor.
If you haven’t read about the adventures
of Mary Alice’s and my Road Trip you can see it here: Road Trip Adventures
Amy made this beautiful table skirt
of an elegant brocade cream colored fabric with
a classic, elegant design and pretty fringed trim.
The reverse side is a casual print of a pretty cream and tan plaid.
So very versatile, as you can have that formal elegant look or turn it over
and have a fun casual cottage look. Win .. win!
I did not have a round table large enough or perfectly round.
I used my pie crust table until I can obtain one that will fit the table skirt.
Did you know that Amy used to make custom draperies for a living?
Yes, you can add that to her many, many talents!!
I changed out the pillows with what I had in my stash.
All of the linens and pillows on the bed and chairs are from Pottery Barn.
The only thing that is fairly new
is the Belgian Flax Linen Floral Stitch quilt and shams.
At the foot of the bed is the Pottery Barn White Tencel quilt…
it is so very soft!!
The blue and white jars remain on the dresser
along with the blue and white bird motif vases (Maitland Smith)
that were previously on the mantel in the Great Room.
Little changes such as changing out pillows, adding a fresh floral arrangement,
and the big impact of just adding a skirted table can beautifully refresh a room.
Hope you enjoyed my Master Bedroom Refresh today.

On another note: the foundation of the new house has been completed.
The bad news is that the county is very far behind in inspections.
It used to be 4 days from request of inspection turn around,
but now it is 10 days!!!
This county needs more inspectors!
(A view from the back of the lot to the front ~ ~ this area is the sunroom
Yes, we turned the screened porch into a sunroom!)
Due to the length of time in waiting for inspections,
we are making all of our decisions/orders way ahead of time,
so when it comes to each phase of the house, we will be ready.
Trying to stay positive!
I wish you all a most beautiful day and
HAPPY MOTHER’S DAY
