Master Bedroom Rework

SONY DSC

Yes, a rework for a little bit of a new look.  I had just gotten this room to where I was happy with it, too.  How is it that you go looking for a new mattress for your Queen size bed and wind up purchasing a new King size mattress?  We needed a new mattress and hubby took this time to let me know he wanted to go to a King.  Here is the before of our bedroom.

Here is the new look, in progress, since I’m still tweaking.

I loved the wrought iron bed displays we were seeing, and have always loved the Wesley Allen beds.  We visited a store that had similar to the Wesley Allen except they were less expensive.  For some reason I can just picture this bed at Christmas time with either a wreath or stockings at the footboard.

It was great to get some new things for our bedroom, but it really wound up stumping me.   It took me a good month to come up with something that had me liking our bedroom as much as I did before the new bed.   Since I took down the bed crown canopy because I thought it looked much too small for this size bed, I wanted to put something else in its place.  I decided on this Hotel de Paris sign, which I first showed you here.

I was able to hang it on the screws that had held the bed crown up.  I rehung the Ballard copycat shadowboxes I made over the bed this time.

I’ve got my eye on a new pair of lamps that I saw at Home Goods to replace the two I have here now.  I’m not sure if I’m going to look for something to hang over the side tables or not.  I was thinking shutters since I liked that look in our guest room, but I’ll wait and see on that.

I’m just happy to have this room at a point where I don’t hate it!

Kathy - the bed is gorgeous! I love iron beds and have been wanting one in my home for awhile now, but the pricing has been prohibitive...thanks for sharing!

The before was really pretty. A simpler look and very cozy looking.

I too love iron beds, Kathy. Your sign looks beautiful over the bed and the bedding is wonderful! Can't wait to see the lamps!

OOOhhhh a King mattress and new bed - how nice - everytime we stay in a nice hotel with kings I wish we had gone that route. BUT the mattress (Queen) we bought cost a metric boatload and we are not going to replace anytime soon.

Your butterfly wrought iron design bed is gorgeous and I love how it looks with your new L'hotel de Paris sign - you do such awesome crafts. Your Ballard knock-off shadowboxes are to die for awesome and everything really looks good together.

I actually really like those bedroom lamps, what's your thoughts behind replacing, just wondering.

Hugs.

We switched up to a king size after we sold our last house and I love it. Your iron bed looks great Kathy!

I love wrought iron beds! We have the faux one from Ikea and I'm dressing it up for Xmas this year. The bed looks nice, comfy and cozy.

Love it Kathy..Much better in my eyes anyway...Great look..I miss my King sized bed..

Celestina Marie said...

Love your iron bed and the new sign above is perfect. I can see a wreath hanging at the foot.
Gorgeous room redo Kathy!

sissie said...

Looks lovely Kathy. I love the pillows and the hotel sign. A king size bed has a way of taking over the room and it can be a struggle to get the look you want, but I believe you've achieved it!
Still working on mine.

hugs

Oh, wow, how nice to go to a king size! I love the iron bed, and think you should send me your old one, since we're still stuck with a queen! :D

NanaDiana said...

It looks really nice, Kathy. I like it a lot. We went to a King Size bed in this house when we moved in and I would never go back now. Love it-especially when we have grandkids pile in to watch cartoons in the morning- xo Diana

Kathy,
Your re-do with your new iron bed is lovely and all of the new accents make it just perfect. One of these days I should get around to posting pics of our 1800's iron bed and bedroom. Enjoy!

Love the bed and the sign looks beautiful over it!!

I'm sure it's hard getting used to a new look, but it really is so pretty! And trust me, King is king! We've had a California King for years, and other than the fact that it needs special sized linens, it's been great! (My husband put his foot down when I was very pregnant and our 30 pound dog slept with us and we only had a full sized mattress!) I absolutely love that bed frame and you HAVE to hang two stockings there!

Shirley@Housepitality Designs said...

Gorgeous bed Kathy….I have a Wesley Allen bed in my guest room…I got a great deal on it at High Point…a $1,700 bed for $500…for that price we changed the queen bed to a king like you…as the bed frame was too great of a deal to pass up…Love your new look of the room and sounds like a domino effect will be going on!

Judy K said...

Love the new bed. I love an iron bed and yours looks gorgeous.

Betsy@ coastal-colors said...

Kathy, this is so pretty! I love my King bed, but I realize it's presents a decorating challenge! Your iron bed is stunning! I love the changes you have made!

designchic said...

It looks wonderful - love the iron bed!

Abby said...

What a pretty bed! I love iron beds, they are so classic. You have a very lovely room

Art and Sand said...

Absolutely beautiful!

Kristens Creations said...

Your bedroom is so pretty Kathy! I am so ready to redo mine. Thanks for your nice comments on my mantel! It is the only decorating I have done so far. I still have my fall stuff sitting in the floor..lol. I cut back on decorating houses due to being so busy with my store but am decorating my friend's house on Tues. Thanks again!!

Manuela@A Cultivated Nest said...

Very pretty! I like both looks. We bought a new mattress in July and I hate it now! So we've been shopping for a mattress again. I am thinking about going king but then you need to buy new sheets etc.

Eilis said...

I love your bed. I have a very similar one but have never thought of decorating it for Christmas... new idea :)

Susan Clayton said...

The bed is gorgeous. I really like the Hotel sign too. The coverlet folded at the foot of the bed looks like the set I bought for my Cassie's 1st Place of her Own.

Everything looks beautiful! I am working on my master bedroom right now, and I too will be glad to get it to the point that I don't hate it :) Your bedskirt is amazing! Life to the full! Melissa @ DaisyMaeBelle
