Birds And Flowers Equal Spring.......

3.18.2010

....in the bedroom. Yes, I have finally finished the master bedroom. I shared how I did the mirror and chest yesterday and now I can show you the rest of the room. I loved the new bird print duvet that came out at Pottery Barn and it was the lowest priced duvet I have ever gotten from there, even on sale. I thought it was a mistake at first when I saw the price, but it was right so I went ahead and bought it. I love how it just makes the room feel lighter and fresher just like the spring season does after a long winter. This year we had a very cold and snowy winter over most of the country. I am so glad that spring officially begins this Saturday. I cannot wait to start working in the yard again. After I bought the duvet and put it on the bed it wasn't quite looking right with the pillows I had. I ordered two white twill euro shams monogrammed with brown letters from Ballard's and added them in place of the tan gingham and still something wasn't quite right. So I went back to Pottery Barn and got the two bird pillow covers which are 24 inch and set them in front of the 26 inch white shams and bingo, that was it. You can't see the monograms, but this is the look I was going after. I added the burlap pillow, also from Pottery Barn, and the little french script pillow that I bought from Gina at the Shabby Chic Cottage blog etsy store. Went to a local flea market and bought a vintage platter with tiny little blue flowers on it and hung it over the mirror over the dresser. Changed out some other accessories and the room is done! I did take a lot of pictures.

If you can see the "A" monogram on the pillow case and sheet and wondering why I would have "A" on my sheets instead of "N" it is because I got a really good deal on these on ebay with the "A". I figured my middle name starts with "A" so why not.










I bought this little vintage magazine holder at a flea market over a year ago. I love when things just seem to come together  at a later time and you had no idea it was going to work out that way.









Faux painted ceiling and new ceiling fan. Old fan was brass and outdated.


This is the old platter from the flea market.

When we were in Italy I took pictures of doors on the front of buildings and framed some of them. This is a close up of one of the doors. They have such beautiful huge solid wood doors over there.




I am joining Cindy at My Romantic Home for show and tell Friday  and the  The DIY Show Off  linky party. Please be sure to click on the link or the button on my sidebar and see what everyone else is showing off this week. 

I was also invited to join  Favorite Things Friday party at The Hills Are Livin by the host, Jessica. Thanks Jessica for inviting me. Our bedroom is certainly one of my favorite rooms.

Thanks so much for stopping by and I hope everyone has a wonderful Springy weekend. Get out and enjoy the fresh air if the weather permits where you are. Please drop me a note and let me know you came by.

Y'all come back now,

KIM

  4. What a pretty room. My bedroom still has the Winter look and I have an Ivory set to replace it with, but just need to do something about it in the near future.
    Have a great weekend.

  5. The room looks beautiful Kim! You know I adore the bird bedding. I like how you put the duvet cover just at the end of the bed. It has me rethinking the way I have our bed made. And I love the bird magazine holder! Great find.

  18. I don't know where to start...everything is beautiful but I'm so impressed with your photography of the old doors...that is a beautiful presentation...
    You asked about my little dog Zoe, she is a Morkie (Maltese and Yorkie mix). Your dog reminds me of her so much, much cleaner and better groomed than my country bumpkin:-)

  31. Kim,
    Your bedroom looks great! I love changing out the bedding with the seasons too, and you've reminded me it's time to get the wool plaid out and in with something springy. I have been admiring the Pottery Barn duvet. It looks perfect in your room, especially how you've accessorized it.
    Happy Spring!

    I feel very creative after visiting you!

  44. Hi Kim,
    Just popping over from Cindy's! Beautiful job, so cosy and inviting-love it!

    I have to tell you this little story about when I re-did our bedroom(all white) and loaded the bed up with pillows (love that!). When my Dougie got into bed that night (he got in before I did) and he was rustling around this way and that I asked him what was the matter, he responded "Pillow #2 and 3 are fine, but I am having some trouble with #5 and #6!" That really cracked me up (but then he is a funny guy).

  45. Kim your room looks BEAUTIFUL!!!!! I love love love everything, your room is picture perfect and belongs in PB magazine. I told you I bought the 24in bird pillow I was going to use as an accent but now I think I'm going to order another one! Have a great weekend, Martina

  47. Hi Kim!

    Everything looks so "magazine perfect" as usual.

    Personally, I think if they have an "S", you should go and get that one for "Savvy" (lol).

    Thanks for sharing the beauty, Karen

  55. Kim, When can I move in?! It's sumptuous...and you can quote me. You have such a flair for mixing lovely with inviting. That would be as opposed to 'lovely, but don't touch!'

    Wonderful!!

  59. HI! Thanks for stopping by:-) I have been "mia" except for Thursdays, but I'm hoping to get back into the swing of things! I cannot believe the bedroom! LOVE that fabric with the birds, and the monogrammed linens. It looks so European B & B. You are so talented!!! I am still obsessing about window treatments in the LR/DR. I looked at the same fabric you have in the DR, but then I got a new Persian rug and I'm finding it hard to coordinate with the pattern. I might go with a gold dupioni silk. We are finally having some better weather, but I came down with a sinus infection and I'm just stuck inside thinking about cleaning the girls' room. Enjoy your weather:-)
