Our Master Bedroom Tour




Today I'm linking up with Kelly over at Kelly's Korner for her home tour.  She features a different room each Friday and today's feature is the Master Bedroom.  It's always fun to see how different folks decorate their houses, so I thought I participate in today's feature.  

 The windows in our Master Bedroom look out on our patio and the pond and they provide an abundance of light for us.  We needed coverings for the afternoon sun and for night, so I chose a pleated fabric shade that is easy up and down.  Just push it up with your hand and pull it down.  There are no cords or rollers.  Very neat!

 But, in the mornings and early afternoons the view from our bedroom is very pretty and will be even more so once the landscaping is completed. 

We have had this bedroom suite for almost 20 years and I still love it.  It is pecan and the bed is a sleigh bed.  The chest at the foot of the bed is the chest my Dad made for me when I graduated from high school.  Yep! it's as "old as dirt." ~grin~  It is made of solid walnut but it is almost a perfect match to our bedroom suite.  It is a very special piece to me and I'm so glad we were able to use it in our bedroom. And, I love the 3 different fabrics in this room. My decorator did such a great job in assisting me with all these choices.

Our night stands are rather large and I'm so glad.  I seem to keep mine pretty full with books, lotions, Ipad and such.  We did get these new lamps when we moved into this house and they are quite large but with the high ceilings, they needed to be. I notice that some folks night stands look like show cases but that is not the case with ours. ~chuckle~
This table graces one of the corners next to the windows.  It's just a decor piece and I love it.  I think it adds such a lovely touch to our room.

This is the bottom to the dresser that goes with our bedroom suite.  We removed the mirrors when we moved and it then made the perfect chest to go underneath our TV.  I know folks that do not have TV's in their bedrooms and know folks that would not dare have one hung on their wall.  But, we love a TV in our bedroom and I'm fine with it being hung on the wall.  ~not a problem for me~  And, you might notice the headphones sitting on the chest.  Those are wireless headphones for Hubby.  He can put those on and have the TV just as loud as he wants it and I will not hear a thing.  So, if he's involved in something on TV and I'm ready to go to sleep, it's a beautiful thing. ~wink~ 

This is a very large armoire that can hold a lot of folded clothes and is a very pretty piece as well.  In our old house it held our bedroom TV but we put the shelves back in it when we moved and now it holds my folded clothes and such.  It looks much prettier in this house than our old house because of the high ceilings.  It is a tall piece and the ceilings in our old house were only 8 feet.

 We enjoy having this recliner in our bedroom.  Hubby uses it to sit in when he's putting on his shoes and I will occasionally kick back in it and read.  It's a cozy corner that we enjoy.

Well, there you have it, our master bedroom retreat. Now, wishing you a wonderful weekend!

  4. Lea,

    Such a coordinated master bedroom. I especially like your décor touches. We also have our television on the wall, but I have a burlap ruffle (from Hobby Lobby) to cover our cord.

    What a lovely view to wake up with,
    ~Kiki~

  5. What a beautiful, peaceful looking bedroom looking out on a pretty water view! I love the walnut chest that holds such meaning to you since your sweet daddy made it.

  8. Lea, I love every detail in your room-from the floors up. Your bedroom set is lovely and I love the Armoire. We have a chair in our room-I thought I'd read in it, but generally just the dog sits on it.
    Thanks for sharing!
    Hugs,
    Noreen

  12. I love your shades. Were they custom by someone local or did you get them from a Blinds to Go type place? I'm in the market as we need something in the bedrooms for sleeping but I don't want to block the windows when possible.
