Mixing Patterns in the Master and New Drapes

4.30.2018

I hope y'all had a nice weekend. Our weather was absolutely delightful with low humidity and mild temps. I'm going to enjoy it until the heat gets here which I'm sure isn't too far off.

I have made a few updates to the master bedroom. Some of the bedding is the same as when I shared the Christmas look and when I had shared some new pillows last November. If you look at those two posts you will see how I like to mix patterns. Now I am mixing even more patterns and the new drapes are up after waiting for back ordered parts.



This time of year this room stays pretty dark until late in the afternoon when the sun finally gets around to this side of the house, but even then not much light makes it in here so I have to up the settings on my camera which then blows out the windows. Since I'm not a professional photographer it is what it is.

I took away the candlesticks that were on this dresser and replaced them with a woven tray filled with books, flowers and a candle.



I'm still using the same duvet as before, but was finally able to get this quilt. Before I had a solid flax colored quilt. I had seen this quilt and duvet on display at Pottery Barn and loved the combo so I waited for the quilt to go on sale.

A few weeks later I bought the matching shams. I don't normally use the matching shams with the duvets, but this time I like the look and I'm still mixing other patterns with them.

This summer I will probably put the heavy duvet away and just use this matelasse with the light weight quilt folded at the foot of the bed or the other way around.



The drapes, which are very hard to photograph, are also from Pottery Barn. These were final sale and free shipping so they were a pretty good deal. I was tired of the old white ones and the cheap rods I was using were bowing since we didn't use the middle supports. It shouldn't be necessary to use those when you have one light weight panel on the rod on one side, but they were bowing anyway. So this time I got better rods. This time we also connected the two rods in the corner.



More pattern mixing on the chair using the gingham pillow with the plaid chair.



You can see the glass finials in this photo on the curtain rods.

Pretty roses, which are drying, are tucked in an ironstone tureen on hubby's nightstand.



Here's a shot with all the lights on.

This is a shot I shared on instagram last week taken during the blue hour.

Don't forget to follow me on Instagram for things sometimes seen before they are on the blog and things that don't even get shared here at all.

Have an awesome week!

    1. I'm sorry Barbara, but I don't know the name of it and I believe they are not carrying them anymore as I can't find it on their site.

  11. Beautiful bedroom. What are the beads on the stool at the end of your bed and where did you get them? I'm wanting some in a smaller length to add to a vignette.

    1. They are called prayer beads. These are over sized more than most and they are from Sugar Boo Design. I got them at a local shop a couple years ago.

  16. I love the room, the colors, so soothing. I adore the mirror above the bed. The only thing I would change would be to add something to it. The scale seems off to me with the size of the bed. Just my opinion.

    1. Judy, thank you for your comment and views. I purposely chose this small mirror over the bed like my inspiration found by designer Brooke Giannetti of Velvet and Linen. I have seen just a small mirror over larger bed a few times since while looking at pinterest, blogs and design books.

    2. I love the designs of Brook and Steve Gianetti. I can see that their master bedroom at Patina Farm was the inspiration for your master and you definitely captured the feel of their room. Well done! I love the mirror. It is perfect exactly as it is. I think adding something to it would make it appear overdone.

  17. Love the wall color. Wondering if it is the same as the ceiling color? Would you mind sharing the names of the color(s)?

    1. Wall color is Alexandria Beige by Benjamin Moore. Not sure what the ceiling color is as it was done by a painter and then the can got tossed.
