Master Bedroom Refresh

Hello Dear Readers.  Welcome to my new and improved site.  I'm still playing around and working on some fine tuning but I'm really excited and loving how it turned out.  Best of all, I like how it allows me to better connect with all of you as this blog now has direct links to my Instagram, Pinterest and email.  So if you have any questions, special requests for posts, or just want to say hi then go ahead and shoot me an email.  A huge thanks to my friend, Jeff, for helping me set up the new look.

However, I'm sure you noticed by now that the title of this post is "Master Bedroom Refresh" and not "New Blog Look" so let's get to it...shall we!?!?

Dave and I are working on a little refresh for our master bedroom.  We are keeping all the furniture but making cosmetic changes like, new paint, bedding and art.  We also never had an area rug in our room so we are finally adding one of those as well.  I feel like the area rug is the key piece to making our room feel all grown up and cohesive.  I think that Dave and I have a problem that quite a few newly married couples have, that problem being our house is a mix of his furniture pre-me and my furniture pre-him.  These things don't necessarily compliment each other and yet they often cohabitate in the same room.  As Scooby-Do would say "Rut Roh!"  However, I have no fear about this!  In fact I'm rather excited by the challenge of creating a new space that harmoniously comes together.  I've been working on a mood board to experiment with ideas for our room and I invite you to follow along to see what ends up working and what just plain falls flat.  Hopefully we'll all learn something together.  

I have always dreamed of a black and white room and wanted one SO badly in my angst ridden days of junior high.  As you know, Tori Amos' music just evokes so much more feeling when listened to with your best friend in your moody bedroom after school while practicing the best way to apply your Great Lash mascara.  This was not my reality though as my bedroom walls had a floral wallpaper of pink and ivory tones.  Oh vey!  It was as if a bottle of Pepto Bismol exploded in my room and dripped down the walls in a beautiful floral pattern.  In my teenage mind, Tori would take one look at my bedroom, play a note on her harpsichord and scoff in laughter.

Flash forward to my mid-thirties and that black and white bedroom is about to come to life, only this time the generally cheery disposition in me is adding in some pops of green.  Below is the mood board I created for the refresh.  Several of the items I have already purchased, a few I plan to purchase and a few are just general ideas of what I'm looking for.  I've already painted the walls Moonlight White by Benjamin Moore so I got the solid white base I was hoping to achieve.

Style Corner - Shoe of the Month, June 2017


Hello Dear Readers.  It's hard to believe June is already upon us.  I feel like it was just New Year's and I was eating rice balls and fighting to stay awake till midnight.  Ah yes, a pretty accurate depiction of my fast paced life right there...but man...those rice balls...so good!
