Hi everyone, remember my latest Home Goods store purchase? I bought this print and promised that I would show you where I put it. Well, it’s Memorial weekend and while most folks are merrily splashing in the water somewhere, I’ve been hard at work in our Master bedroom.
I snapped some photos of my latest gallery wall project, now that I added my Love Is Why We Are Here print. I like to collect old oil paintings and funky prints and just mix them all together.
I love my mysterious, elegant girl with her beloved dog.
And I’m absolutely smitten with the variations of green in this old painting.
The next step (I really need to do this) is to level all my frames and add a piece of tape underneath to hold the pictures in place. But of course, I’m too impatient to show you what I’ve been working on, so please pretend that all the artwork looks tidy and straight.
The painter actually tried to talk me into a lighter paint color, but as you can see by this photo taken from our entrance, the room had so much gaping space above us that I wanted to make the room feel cozier and more intimate. So I used color. It’s the only room in the house with dark walls because the older I get, the more I love variations of white and cream on my walls.
Right above our bed we hung a rustic wooden architectural piece that I found in an antique store. It’s hard to see the detail from this angle but here’s a closer shot.
Isn’t it pretty? I wish I knew where it came from…
I kept the ceiling a creamy white color, although it does emphasize the harsh angles of this room which I’m not a fan of, but I was really afraid to paint the ceilings.
These are the French doors that lead outside. And this top window is the shape that I truly dislike (should I say hate?). I snapped this picture in the late afternoon and you can see how the wall color changes during the day…
A funky chalk drawing we had done in Long Beach, California years ago is framed in a formal gilt frame.
Here’s another Home Goods purchase. I got it for all our books that accumulate around our bedroom. I love the faux bamboo shelves and I snapped it up when I saw it in the store.
Even though I love white bedding, our puppy Stella likes to sleep on our bed at night so this is the rumpled duvet that is actually on our bed while we sleep. Here’s a shot in the morning. It’s a soft Ralph Lauren fabric…isn’t Stella spoiled?
And before I go, here’s a photo of the master bath with our claw foot tub. I saw this lighting while I was getting out of the shower and I actually ran and got my camera. I think it looks rather pretty and ethereal…And yes, I got brave and decided to bring the chocolate brown color in here too, after I saw a Pottery Barn catalog with a similar look. What do you think?
Tell me about your bedroom What paint color do you have? I would love to hear, and if you want to see other bedrooms for some inspiration, you really should check out my Pinterest Bedrooms board. I’ve been collecting some really gorgeous photos there.

In the meantime, I hope you’re all having a wonderful weekend. We just had sushi and saw the Avengers movie last night.
