My Favorite Room.....Atta Girl Says


 I'm Amy from Atta Girl Says, and I can't express what a thrill it is for me to be sharing my favorite room today on Kim's blog. When we moved into our new home almost two years ago, I started searching the Internet for design inspiration and I discovered the amazing world of home decor blogs. Savvy Southern Style quickly became one of my favorites. It was required arm chair reading every night, and it still is. It's hard to pick a favorite room in your dream house, but today I'm sharing a tour of our master bedroom and sitting room. It truly is a retreat, and I think it's very reflective of my style.

  Atta Girl Says Blue and White Master Bedroom and Sitting Room
I've always had a thing for blue bedrooms. Blue is such a serene and calming color, and a bedroom decorated in various shades of blue is the perfect place to wind down after a busy day. You'll find just about every shade of blue in our bedroom -- pale powder blue, Wedgwood blue, Tiffany blue, Aubusson blue, Williamsburg blue, Duck Egg blue, Louis blue and so many more.

The bedroom also includes so many things that I love, like handpainted and lovingly distressed furniture and mirrors and vintage glassware and pottery. (I didn't paint this antique duck egg blue and cream secretary. I bought it from my friend, Kaaren at Lucketts Market. But I have painted plenty of other pieces of furniture in our house.)

Our bedroom also showcases my love of mixing patterns and fabrics. I love to pair florals and geometrics and stripes together. In this room, that mix of patterns happened quite by accident.

I knew I wanted some French-style chairs for our bedroom sitting room. Initially, I had my heart set on some bergere chairs upholstered in a natural linen.

(They were samples from the High Point Furniture Market.) And I knew they would be perfect for our bedroom. Certainly not what I had imagined for the room, but so perfect for it.

  Atta Girl Says Blue and White Striped French Chairs Admittedly, they are very girly, but they are also comfortable. My husband spends a lot of time in them watching sports on TV and reading. It's nice to be married to a man who isn't intimidated by a girly French chair!

The curtains were another accidental find that inched our master bedroom closer to completion. As soon as I saw these Farrah Fretwork curtains at Target, I knew I had to have them for my home. I initially bought two panels, just to try them out. I didn't really know where I would use them -- maybe in our living room. They were too short for the tall windows in there, but as luck would have it, perfect for the bedroom. Then commenced a search of eight Target stores, all over North Carolina, to find enough panels for all the windows in our bedroom and sitting room. Boy, is that a story -- my curtain odyssey.

The rest of the room is all about the details.

  Atta Girl Says Vintage Jewelry Under Glass Cloche
I like to keep my favorite jewelry under glass on my nightstand. Look, even my earrings are blue! As we've toured the bedroom, you may have noticed I have a bit of a bird obsession.

  Atta Girl Says Jewelry in Bird DishThey've come to roost everywhere in the bedroom.

  Atta Girl Says Glass and Brushed Nickel Bird Lamp with Glass Shade
This brushed nickel table lamp has the most enchanting glass shade decorated with birds. I bought it at The Red Collection, one of my favorite local consignment stores, which is reportedly the largest consignment store in the southeast.

 I actually have not one, but two, bird lamps in the master bedroom. I love the hobnail glass globe and vibrant shade on this wrought iron floor lamp that came from my favorite place in the world to find antiques and vintage home decor items. And, of course, there's our bedding.

    Have an awesome and blessed day rock star!

  20. This is a Bedroom and sitting room. I am wondering where the TV is, she said her hubby sits there and watches sports. I am curious cause we have a TV on the wall of our sitting room and I am NOT thrilled with how it looks. Love all the blues and birds too. Thanks so much for the tour. XO, Pinky

  25. Beautiful room. Love all the blues and those chairs...such a GREAT find!

  26. This is GORGEOUS!! I was just lamenting not having a fireplace in my post today and then I see this? Well it might put me over the proverbial edge. lol But, I DO actually have those curtains in our Master so it's a start… haha Love this space!!

  27. Very, very pretty. Yes, calming is the perfect term for this room. I recently moved into a rental. My landlord said I can paint as long as I don't go extreme. I love soft, pastel colors. He really has nothing to worry about lol.

    This post has given me some wonderful ideas for my bedroom. The house is a good size and I have lots of space to decorate. I don't want to go too far. Not sure how long I will be in this house, but it will be for a good deal of time as I am not a frequent mover.

    Thank you so much for this posting!

    Positive thoughts & prayers! :-)

  28. So glad that you featured Amy's favorite room today! I've seen her bedroom in person and can attest to how gorgeous it is. Amy has such a great style and it is reflected throughout her home!

  29. Amy, your room is beautiful! Love how you've layered everything over time and the blues are so soothing. I had picked up your same comforter for my mom's master bedroom makeover last year, but it ended up not working, so returned it, but I always thought it was such a pretty comforter. You've done a wonderful job!

  30. Beautiful room! Love every detail. Could you tell me the name of the paint color on the walls?

  31. Did you say, "Largest thrift store in the Southeast????" Please, do tell more!

  32. Stunning bedroom..the prettiest I've seen lately!! I also love the lamp with the birds. Beautiful! Enjoy your week.
