My Master Bedroom Inspiration

I have been searching for inspiration on how in the world am I going to fix up my room and please the hubz to feel he doesn’t belong in or room, and after searching for almost a year now I have found some great blogs that have inspired me to put together our room. Here is one of my favorites..

By using several pieces Kate previously owned she came up with an amazing master bedroom for her and her husband. How she put together a mini art gallery of pieces dear to her heart with a gorgeous touch.

This room is gorgeous, I love how romantic it feels, but not over the top by centsational girl. The bed’s fabrics make this room, along with the paint color.. Kate mixed it up a bit with the wall coloring ’s two blended together: ½ Ben Moore ‘Camouflage’ and ½ Ben Moore ‘Misted Green’

Love…Love… Love… The mirror plus how she centered it to make this gorgeous mirror and the bed the focal point of the room.

Another thing I can’t get enough if is this knock-off Dorthy Draper dresser… Originally a thrift store piece purchased in a dark color had taken up space in a different room that wasn’t in use very much. Added white paint, gold trim and now look at it. I still can’t get over the fact that this piece was a darker blue color, she did an amazing job.

This next photos are centered around a beautiful antique dresser, piece of art they purchased a long time ago, and flowers from around their backyard. Following the design rule of layering in three’s. Plus my personal favorite the wedding photo, looks as though out of a fairy tale. All pricessless pieces that tell a story of there lives together. Perfect art gallery, which gives me great inspiration of how to create something similar.

A bronze colored chandelier just the right size and color to add to this wonderful room… Kate really shows off how you can turn your bedroom in to a blissful retreat by decorating with pieces from around your home.. What a great job she’s done.

Remember, these photos were taken from censtational girl’s blog and is not my design. I love her design and wanted to give her credit for such a beautiful room she put together. I hope this has given you inspiration as it has given me.

Entryway Design Idea

We are fast approaching our 5th month in our new home, and I keep wishing and hoping if I just budget a little bite more, cut back on my BAD Tim Horton’s coffee addiction daily and not go into a single store for those spur of the moment shopping runs of oh I ran out of toilet paper or milk then maybe I can put $$$ aside for my decorating projects I’ve been day dreaming&dootling in my design notebook which has grown to 5 or 6 books now, lol…

Then, it came to me.. After running into centsational girl and viewing all of her amazing diy projects she’s done (& makes it totally look so easy plus her simple tutorials) my hubz (which i am forever grateful for, he can make/fix anything) and I could so totally do this on our own.

MY DIY DREAMLAND

I’ve been doing a lot of research on diy home improvements and I am very confident we can pull this off. Considering the fact as a little girl 4-5 years old while growing up I watched my dad build a 2 1/2 car garage with an attic & insulated it himself, also within that year he built a shed, within the following years remodeling the basement and re-doing the roof & siding.

I can’t hardly wait to try it out on my own. I swear I should’ve been an interior decorator. I love to look at the millions of possibilities a room can be done. I could sit for hours and look at different home decor & do it yourself magazines. You should see my collection…

Here is one of my personal favorite design of entryways/mudrooms I had found from centsational girl’s blog

This gorgeous entryway with white board & batten is a classic design

image
Just the basic board & batten has the feel of a Built-In look-a-like is very convincing..

image
Here these bronze hooks give this design a classic look to use for the whole fam

image
In this close-up the cove-molding builds one of this entryways characteristics of a built-in feel.

image
Simple floral decor is timeless approach

image
At this angle, the seamless ledge gives you added shelving for proud pictures to be displayed

image
Final pieces displays beautiful family photo’s (as art work)of the children that will enjoy this space for a lifetime to come.

Displaying photo’s of the family is the best part. I love the lil piggies…

Add a couple of jackets, toys and other outdoor essentials completes centsational girl’s basic board & batten project..

I can’t wait to re-do my entryway now, so much inspiration centational girl has given me, she did an amazing job, don’t you agree?

OCD Am I the only one?

Thank you God for blessing me with a wonderful handy man of a husband, and giving him my taste in decor also. He and I like the same kinds of designs, so we always gravitate to the same kinds of colors and styles… 
I am forever thankful, idk what I’d really do…

Which is a great thing because if I had to mix one look with something totally different that would drive me wacky, my ocd would never allow me to settle in with it.
Hubz was hanging some photo’s of The Detroit Grand Prix from the late 80’s early 90’s and they have the dates on them, he just threw en up there to look at to see if we looked them were they were, and I said u have to switch them! He says why? I pointed at the photo’s and said the dates they aren’t in order and it’s going to drive me nuts… ( that is when I realized I am getting bad), who does that???
I feel crazy now that I think back on the situation…

Am I the only one who does this?
Is there others out there that do this too?
What are your OCD tendencies?
How do you put you’re mind at ease?

Please share of you are reading this. No judgment I promise!
