My Favorite Room....Sophia's Decor

 Hi there!  I'm Kristen from Sophia's Decor and I'm so happy to be sharing my favorite room here at Savvy Southern Style.  Kim is such a talent and her blog has been such an inspiration for me since I started blogging.  She truly has an eye for design!

After moving from WA State to the Raleigh, NC area about a year and a half ago, I been slowly trying turning our brand new spec house into a home with personal touches and vintage finds all on a budget.  It was hard to pick my favorite room, but I ultimately chose my newly completed master bedroom...
I'm a busy mom of three girls and I really love to have a comfortable place to escape and relax at the end of the day.
I started putting this room together last spring by carefully shopping for second-hand and budget finds and re-finishing existing furniture. We had to leave much of our furniture behind when we moved so it was almost like starting over, but I scored a $75 solid wood bed from Craig's List...
I also picked up some $20 thrift store chairs and painted and re-upholstered them in clearance velvet curtain panels from Target.
 My childhood dresser also got a face-lift with some Chalk Paint and white glaze...
Since I've always wanted a pair of mirrored nightstands, but are not currently in the budget, I simply re-painted our old ones with some silver metallic paint and added new glass hardware.
 I love the bit of sparkle that they add to the room along with the crystal chandelier and some mercury glass candlesticks and lamps.  I had fun personalizing these HomeGoods lamps with a little paint...
Since the kids love to come in our room to watch a little TV or movies, my husband and I built this bench for them last weekend.  They love it!

One of my favorite projects in the room is the chalkboard fireplace that was made with a flea market mantel...
The house didn't come with a fireplace in the room so I added one of my own!  It's a fun way to add a little character to a room.  It's been a fun process to put the room together and I personally love that I didn't have to break the bank to get the look that I wanted.

Thanks so much for visiting my favorite room today and thanks Kim for asking me to share!  If you'd like to see more of my home, you can visit my home tour here.  Have a wonderful day!

Thanks so much, Kristen for sharing your stunning master bedroom. 
I had the honor of meeting Kristen at the Southern Blogger's Conference back in October.

Alright y'all, go on over to Kristen's and look at the rest of her beautiful home. Get comfy first because you may be there for a while.

Have a super weekend!

  16. Hi, Kim and Kristin - So many wonderful ideas here! Kristin, your master bedroom is like a retreat....so warm and stylish. You've shown what a little paint can do for furniture. And as someone specializing in Swedish painted antiques, I love it!
    Cheers from DC,

  17. I so love Kristen's calming color scheme throughout her home. What I think I love the most about the bedroom (besides the chandelier, velvet chairs and her childhood dresser!) is the layering she did with the furry rug in front of the faux fireplace and the throws and layering of bedcovers on her bed. Those layers warm up the space so much and make it a "home". Lovely.

  28. You've done a beautiful job with some very clever accents I wouldn't mind copying!

    My husband is a builder, and so we see many spec houses, sometimes after the homeowners have moved in... years later they still look very cold and un-homey. You've got the touch!
