Feelin a little blue



Sharing some color I added to my gray and white Master Bedroom.


I found this blue comforter with light gray and white flowers at Home Goods.





I liked the subtle gray and white roses to match all the gray and white in the room.  I love a lot of pillows just thrown onto the bed each day.   Just a messy comfy look.






I like the spring like feel it brings to this room.  I also painted the cottage roof and my grandma's darning basket a light gray that sits on top of the armoire.











I took the ruffle white shabby chic curtains from the living room and moved them back to the Master.  I like that they let a lot of natural light into our bedroom.  We have a very large picture window in our bedroom which takes up a lot of the wall space but I love the natural light that flows in this room.  It was snowy and gloomy today but normally the sunshine streams in.  I also can see out at all the flowers and trees.  So pretty in the summer.






Still love my headboard made out of old cottage doors.  My husband finished the top with crown molding.

My beautiful Valentine's Day Roses from  from the hubby are on his side of the bed for the pictures.  Normally these are not there.  A clock radio and three plug in for his radio's and pagers etc. and the phone.  They are all hidden for the pictures!! 

 Oh no now you know we do not live like we are in a magazine!! The secret is out.  I think there is some dust on the floors too.  Don't look!






On my nightstand I have the  psalm of solomon and my beautiful love birds my hubby gave me for our anniversary.



Trying to bring in a little blue to the grey and white for a more Spring like feel.  We are getting 6 to 8 more inches of snow.
Have a great start to the new week.
Kris

  3. Gorgeous as usual. I wasn't sure how much blue I would see when I read the title, "Feelin' a Little Blue".

    I laughed when you mentioned your husband's "stuff". I have given Steve a caddy to hide his things on the nightstand.

  10. Kris,
    Your grey and light blue are a Springtime delightful addition. Looks peaceful and pretty. We too are going to get a drop of additional snow tonight into tomorrow of 8-10 inches. Sweet dreams of Spring in your restful master bedroom.
    This weekend I wrote a poem of Spring for my next post and I'm decorating for Spring/Easter in our home. Winter please leave!!!

  11. Hi Kris, LOVE that new comforter from Home Goods!! It's perfect in your room! The hint of color is G*O*R*G*E*O*U*S!! MORE WHITE on the way HERE too~~~Blessings~~~Roxie

  12. It is soooo light and pretty. Your room is so romantic. I love how white it is. The faded floral bedding is just the right amount of softness for soring and summer...all year round! I want to go see if our Homegoids has one, i like it that much! I have always loved your Song of Solomon subway sign. It is also a favorite verse of mine. I like the way you painted it and how it is tucked in your room with the live doves for that swoon of romance. Loveliness.

  13. Swoon! What a beautiful, beautiful room!
    I would be so tempted to just lay in bed all morning and just soak in the beauty!
    Love that psalm.

  14. The new pretty comforter will at least make your room LOOK like spring is right around the corner, Kris! I love the subtle changes you've made! We have 2 more subzero days in our forecast, then some warmer weather coming our way. It's going to feel like the tropics!

  16. At first I thought you were blue from the snow and cold! Then I see you are bringing color into your bedroom. So pretty! You are always busy doing something and you creative mind must be going a mile a minute! If you find the button to turn off the cold and snow machine would you please share it with me!!!! Nancy

    Stay warm and cozy.

  20. Love the blue you added to the room...very pretty and looks great with the white and grey!! Your master bedroom is beautiful!!! Love, love, love those doors as your headboard!!
    We got an inch or so of snow last night and then it stopped snowing, but they are calling for 3 more inches overnight. We got lucky, because they were first thinking we would get 6 to 12 inches.

  27. When I lived in Illinois I always found it so depressing when it would snow in March. March is spring...it shouldn't snow in spring! Well on to a more pleasant topic. Your dreamy bedroom!! It is so beautiful and romantic! The soft blue is the perfect touch of spring! The room must be such a cozy spot to snuggle in bed and read a good boo and look out the wonderful window!

  39. I could just sink into that bed - with a book.................
    It must be so beautiful to lay down there at the end of the day ( or in the middle of the day for a quick nap :)
    Your headboard is gorgeous Kris- and what a wonderful idea to finish it off with the crown molding - I would never have
    thought of that!
    Not snowing in Montreal - but freezing like you wouldn't believe!

  42. Simply beautiful! I love how soft and romantic it all feels (minus the hubby's gadgets -- good call moving them for the pics LOL). We just got another 5" over the weekend which means we still have about 14" on the ground -- C R A Z Y!! Surely this can't go on forever???
