Lamps: thrifted and painted. Shades: Target. Armiore: thrifted. Hamper: World Market. Bedside tables: missing!

Here is the Master Bedroom. The room is small and cozy and best of all FULL of sunlight! I put curtains up in all of the bedrooms for privacy, but we never close these. All four windows look out to trees and greenery. It is so beautiful!

There is no television in this room on purpose. It is a first for us, but we are thrilled to have given it up!

You will notice there are MANY things that need purchasing.....bedside tables, bedding, a piece for above the bed. I think its common to leave your room until last, fixing up the rest of the house first. The majority of the furniture and decor in this room have been with us since college.

This is the third house I have hung these curtains in: Atlanta living room, Dallas dining room, now the bedroom. I am a huge fan of the World Market Curtains! They have great sales and carry most of their products for a hundred years, so you can always go back for more panels. It is extremely important to me that I don't buy things for one room in particular. I feel in order to have a great collection you have to buy things that can be versatile and go in any space in your home.

The two credenzas are in pretty bad shape! I picked them up for ten dollars a piece at a garage sale and replaced the knobs for under five. I love them as they are, but I know that when I spend the money to have them refinished they will look amazing! The shape and size are really good for any room.

I'm constantly hunting down ideas for this room, evidenced by my very long list of inspiration photos on Pinterest and my excitement over yesterdays post.....Design Sponge and Lonny Magazine. Hopefully I will be sharing some photos of improvements made soon!

I agree with Lisa... interior design is definitely one of your gifts. FYI: I was 15 in that charcoal sketch; it was done by a street artist in either Belgrade, Yugoslavia or Trieste, Italy - I'd have to dig out my diary from that summer to be sure, lol. Re that funky 70's armoire... Jahromi's Thrift Shop, more lol's!
