One Room Challenge – Week Two.
But Hold Up…An Inspiration Change. A Do Over.
I assumed my Inspiration would be a Family Inheritance 150 Year Old Painting.
But Truth Be Told – The Family Painting is One that I would have walked right past in a Gallery.
Whoops…did I really just Say That??? Yes I Did.
So that’s been my problem. The Inspiration has been a Falsehood.
My New Inspiration for the Master Bedroom – Hampton Court Palace.
Home of Henry VIII and his Numerous Wives.
And Specifically the Staircase. Filmed in Pirates of the Caribbean – On Stranger Tides.
And My Photograph of the Hampton Court Staircase.
My Master Bedroom Inspiration.
I Plan To Enlarge the Photo with Shutterfly to 24 x 36.
The Master will have Grown Up Tones of Black and White and Gray.
With the Warm Candlelight Glow.
Then Came the Ultimate Question…How Much is This Going to Cost???
To Save Some $$$, I Went Shopping for Paint in the Shed.
Lucky for Me, I found Unopened Cans of White and Grey and Black.
There You Go.
With Painter’s Tape for a Professional Look. Love Shed Shopping.
Silk Drapes for the Window. Floor to Ceiling. Black Rod. Lots of Puddling.
Overstock has great drapery options. Here’s One that Could Work.
Light Green, Gray, Pale Blue. With a slight shimmer.
(50″ wide x 96″ length – $59.99)
Or…Dramatic Black and Gold Stripe. (50″ wide x 108″ length – $59.99)
I do love stripes. Classic.
Or Then there’s This…Black and Pewter. Regal Pattern. Might be Too Dark. Trying Too Hard.
(50″ wide x 96″ length – $49.49)
I Need to Paint the Walls First and Then Decide on Drapes.
Gray for the Walls.
We downsized the Furniture and the Tiny Space Looks Bigger.
This dresser stays and will be painted – Black Bottom with Refinished Wood Top.
Hope I don’t lose the trim details.
An Antique Steamer Trunk is great for storage and will also stay.
I’m searching for a pillow top for comfortable seating.
White Bedding. Down Comforters. Natural Fabrics.
Or…An Antique Map of New York City – Black and White Duvet Cover Set.
Souvenir from a NYC Trip. Hello H&M.
Making Progress. Slowly. Now to Paint.
One Room Challenge Magic Coming Up.
Well you’re off to a good start! I did my curtains that way in our bedroom. Drollery thought I was out of my mind. I kept telling him it was a decorating thing. I’ll have to show him your pictures up there. 😀
Yes, please do…I’d love to hear his comments…Mr. Doodle hasn’t seen my idea choices yet…hmmm…:)
I love the gold and black. Happy Thursday, Jeanne♥
Hi Summer – I’m leaning that way too…but the wall color will be the final decision maker. Thanks so much for following along…wish you could stop by to help paint. 🙂
Ah! Hampton Court Palace – what great inspiration! I live about 45 minutes from there and have visited it many times. It’s an incredible place. Happy decorating!
Oh wow June – I really loved Hampton Court…would go back in a hot minute…so you know this staircase…right? Hope I can do it justice…the scale is so impressive. Thanks for following along. 🙂
You are amazing! Can’t wait to see the results!
Thanks Suzee – now the hard work begins. 🙂
Nice to see good response to this – your choices are solid – it’ll work out
You have a say in this too…:)
This is fun! I will be looking forward to see what you do!
Thanks for your encouragement, Mila! I can’t wait to see your mural. 🙂
With such great inspiration, I’m sure your master bedroom will be very elegant and classic. That’s my style, I think. (I hope!) Thanks for visiting my blog. I’m glad I found yours!
I forgot to say I REALLY like the striped drapes. (I don’t know why the time says 3:28 a.m. Some weird glitch with my blog! The time is really 11:30ish.
Oh Good Lucille – the striped ones are the ones I just ordered…Overstock…you never know what you’ll get with Overstock(!)
Hi Lucille – Thanks for visiting – we’ll see where this all goes but it already looks grown up without all the puppets!
This is going to be good! I love the dramatic plans you have! Part of me is so drawn to those striped curtains! The dresser will look amazing painted, I don’t think you will lose the details. I always think painting helps to bring them out even more. You could maybe do a glaze overtop and try to emphasize the details? Love that you shop the shed!
Thanks for stopping by Kari – you are right about the dresser…actually dressers…my daughter and I painting 2 and they both look great…details and all!
