Second Time Is The Charm

Happy Wednesday.  I am finally getting up a post on my changes to the Master Bedroom and En Suite Bath.

I just could not get the romantic and spa feel I wanted in there the first time around so I decided to start over from scratch.  That means repainting the walls and furniture!!!!
Here is the supervisor on the job.  Our Basset Hound Libby. She looks just thrilled that we are tearing the room apart and starting over in this room!!!!  You can just tell by her look that she is thinking "Jez can you just leave well enough alone"!
The new color on the walls is called Snowfall in Paris.  It was an old paint chip I had from Glidden.  They no longer make this color so the great paint guy at HomeDepot was able to color match it to the Behr paint I love with primer.  It is a very light grey.  I love how all my chippy white pops with this new color on the walls.
Here are the chandeliers on as night was approaching.  It really brings a romantic vibe to the room.  Love having these chandeliers on dimmers.
I really feel I got the soft romantic spa like retreat now.  My bedroom is my favorite room.  It really is a sanctuary for me and the hubby at the end of the day.  I love the newer softer colors in this bedroom.


The old vintage hanger with old knobs was painted in the Behr antique white paint and then I distressed it.
Here is a view of the armoire painted in light grey. Looks white in the picture but it is a silver light grey called Gallery White by Behr.  Very pretty with my vintage glass knobs.  I painted my grandmother's old darning basket with AS paris grey paint and the roof on my little Hampton's cottage was also painted with the Paris Grey.
I was able to use my white wreath I had hanging in the bedroom before.  Just added the grey and white painted Hope sign and the angel wings. 

This is the new bedskirts.  I used two, one is a light grey and white check straight skirt from Target and then I layered my white ruffle skirt and ruched it up to give a softer look to the skirts.
I brought in my white Ikea chair and added this pottery barn grey euro sham pillow for a back cushion.  I found this soft and cozy grey throw at HomeGoods.  The drapes are a sheer with a soft pattern embroidered throughout.  I love that I can close these on a sunny day and it filters the light into the room so nicely.  I wish it was a sunny day today to have taken these pictures.  It really is so pretty on a sun filled day to have the light streaming through this room.
The hubby painted all the chandeliers white.


My Grandmothers cedar chest got a new top cover. It is a white and grey pattern.  I kept the wood in the chippy white that it was.




The night stands are painted in the mixture of Annie Sloan Pure White and Paris Grey.  I love the color I got with mixing the two.  Dark enough for contrast but soft enough to keep it romantic.


Love these pretty lights at night.  So romantic.  It is like having candle light.
I was able to move my beautiful love birds that my hubby got for me for our anniversary years ago.  They are a sweet and romantic addition to my night stand.  One of my most treasured gifts that he has given me for our anniversary.
There you have it the supervisor is good with the room now!!!! She got a new bed out of it .  She likes to sleep on our bed so with white bedding she needed to have a place to curl up in.   I usually do not show how we really live in these pictures for posts but with a doggie and a lot of white through out my house,  I have dog beds and throws on the white furniture !!!!  I know it is a shocker that my house does not stay pristine white with a dog!!!! I guess my secret to keeping things white is out now!!!!







Here are a few pictures of the en suite master bathroom.  It was hard to get good pictures in this room.  We painted the walls in the same color as the bedroom.


The chippy white vintage pieces I have in the bathroom now pop on the new grey walls.





I have a double shower in this master bath so it takes two shower curtain to cover the glass doors.  I used these two white ruffle ones from Target.  I painted my make up table white and the chair was painted with Annie Sloan pure white paint and then I waxed the fabric.  So far so good with painting fabric furniture.


Well there you have it a peak at the new master bedroom and en suite master bath.  I think I got my spa/romantic feel to these rooms.
Stepping out of my cream and white world and doing the pure white with grey was a stretch for me but I really am liking the results.

Have a great rest of the week.  Make sure you tune in on Saturday for another couple of great bloggers to get to know better.  I will be featuring Marty from A Stroll Thru Life and Susan will be featuring Sherry from No Minimalist Here.  Two talented bloggers that you will love getting to know on a more personal level.

  2. Wow, you really have been busy with all of your painting projects, Kris! Your bedroom is so pretty and really does have that soothing spa sanctuary feel that you were going for! It looks like Libby agrees:) Your chandeliers are gorgeous, I love how you even have one in the bath. And I also love your use of two bedskirts, I think I will have to borrow your idea! You've done an awesome job on your makeover!!

  5. Oh, Kris. I love it. So romantic and you certainly got the look you were going for. Love the chandys and the colors. You have so many really beautiful and charming pieces especially that dainty little fur ball in the bed. I put pillows, blankets, beds, towels, and my cat just misses them by about one inch! Thank heaven the dog wouldn't fit on the furniture..The bathroom is gorgeous too..Great job..Happy Tuesday..Judy

  6. Hi Kris, Your bedroom turned out beautiful. The grey walls add an elegant touch to the shabby whites. I love that look. Basset Hounds are so cute and your Libby is such a sweetie.

  7. Extraordinaire ! J'aime la façon dont tu expliques pas à pas les changements effectués dans ta chambre. Vraiment impressionnant. Le résultat est d'une douceur incroyable sans pour autant être froid. Le chien est trop adorable, et oui, lorsque nous vivons avec nos quatre pattes il leur faut leur confort à eux aussi.

  24. Wow Kris, I love your grey walls... they're perfect with all of your touches. Beautiful job and I love how the chandeliers give such a nice glow. My very favourite part? The fact that Libby is a faded version of a basset. tee hee. She fits in perfectly. :)

    ReplyDelete
  25. Definitely romantic . . . lovely touches as usual with your great taste. I might have trouble getting out of bed.

    We are luck with Lulu. She sits on our bed a little bit at night and in the morning when she awakens at 6:30 we bring her back to bed with us for awhile. Otherwise, she does not like being on the furniture AND she does not shed since she has hair, not fur. Our issues are sand, sand, sand and oh yeah, sand.

  26. It all looks so lovely! You must not have kids!

  27. I absolutely love it all!!! I have been seriously thinking about doing away with my pink in the livingroom and kitchen for a few years but was a little scared to paint the walls white once again. I am in love with the grey...I may just do this this spring. Everything is just so beautiful Kris...everything you two touch just turns to gold!!!

    ReplyDelete
  28. Beautiful as always! Your husband must be a patient man to help you paint so much! I have told you before but I do love that dog!!!! Nancy

  29. Oh Kris, you truly amaze me and I get so much from what you do and wanted to say thank you!! You are a great friend. This is just a wonderful retreat. Libby is just precious. Peanut and Reeses are the same way, they love to cuddle.

  31. I am in love! Bright white and soft grey are my favorite color combo's in my house. I adore what you've done with your bedroom and bathroom. I love the bedding and the grey European shams you used. I also like the chandeliers and the grey paint on the walls. I need to redo my master bathroom to better coordinate with my bedroom and I'm planning on painting the walls a light grey to off set all the white in there. Your rooms really give me the motivation! Great idea to put your dog bed on your bed too. My dog gets on my bed all the time and messes it up!

    ReplyDelete
  32. Oh Kris, I simply love your new spa bedroom/bath. Everything is perfect so soft and romantic. Even the doggie matches the bedroom LOL. Looks like she loves her new bed also. I love all the chandy's painted white. Great job!!!!

  41. That's incredible! Your bedroom looks like a soothing and restful place...your dog certainly thinks so:) Love your bathroom too!

  42. Hi Kris! I LOVE the new colors! I have been debating doing our bedroom with white/beige or white/grey and keep leaning towards the grey. Even though I fond these matching chairs in beige that I love, I'm still leaning towards the grey. Now that I've seen how gorgeous it looks in your bedroom/bathroom, I'm convinced grey is the way to go! It's soft ad feminine but not too girly and it really shows off the white accents! Great job! Hugs, Leena

  46. I love the pale grey and white colour scheme Kris. It is very spa like and oozes calm and serenity. The chippy, shabby elements work so well together... you must be so thrilled with the finished room. Libby is adorable too!!
    Hugs - Kerryanne

  47. What a romantic paradise Kris! Do you rent out? lol! Love the color combinations. I have been hashing the idea of painting my bed white or grey for some time now. I just started painting it white this weekend. Will work on it more tomorrow. I love the layering of bed skirts! Thanks for sharing it with SYC.
    hugs,

  48. I loved your room before but I love the softer look too! You did a fabulous job! Your bathroom is gorgeous too. Lucky you to have room for a make-up table! My favorite part of the room has to be Libby. She looks so sweet! I have 2 Shih Tzus so white wouldn't work at all for me. I went with lighter beige furniture in the living room and have to keep everything covered. I also have a top sheet over my bedding because they both sleep with us on a king-sized bed.
