Misty Master Suite

Hello Everyone!
This is my first time participating in Blue Monday.
It's hosted by sweet Sally at Smiling Sally.
Please visit her for a list of other posts.
Our master suite is decorated in tranquil shades of
blue and is different than the rest of our home.
Accents are in silver, black and chocolate browns.
The paint is called Misty.
It's by Martha Stewart found at Sherwin Williams.
It's a contrast to our dark furniture from Haverty's.
The ivory bedding is made by Thomasville.
This desk matched and is from the Bombay Company.
The tasseled bench is from Lowes.
The anniversary frame was handmade by Kristen.
Our 10 year anniversary is coming up this Friday.
What a wonderful keepsake. Thanks Kristen!
This little cresent table is from Kirklands.
I found the scroll bowl at a local pottery store.
The carved armoire is my favorite piece.
It reminds me of the movie The Chronicles of Narnia.
Here is the matching triple dresser.
The spiral lamps and beaded shades are from Lowes.
A black velvet slipper chair from Marshalls.
The jewel chest with a flower is from QVC.
I painted our adjoining bathroom in the same shade.
Blue shell prints are from Kirklands.
Towels and area rugs from BB& Beyond. Here is the vanity area. I love the huge mirror!
Ahhh... My garden soaking tub.
Glass apothacary jars filled with soap and lotion.
They are tied with a wired ribbon. Hanging from the mirror is a silver ornament tassel. This wood shelf is displayed with a few items.
Have a wonderful week!

Melissa,

Your blue master bedroom & bath are so beautiful & tranquil! The accent colors are perfect...

I love that you shared with us where you found your pieces~it always amazes me what you can find at local stores and you probably saved quite a bit not buying the desk and separate chair at the furniture store.

Great Blue Monday post. Love your home!! :-)

Hi Melissa, Your bedroom is really pretty. The colors are so soothing. The frame looks great where you put it. Just perfect!

I've been meaning to do a post, but I had a root canal on Tues. and have been on pain meds ever since. I've been dealing with this tooth for several months now. My dentist is sending me to an endodontist. He thinks there might be a crack that he can't see. I just hope they can fix it soon, they pain meds are making me a little loopy!

Thanks for the shout out, I really appreciate it. I need to make more frames, maybe I'll feel better tomorrow.

Oh....love the tassel Nancy made, it's really pretty! Kristen

Diane said...

Good morning Melissa :)

Your bedroom suite is beautiful! The blue is perfect and I love that tassel. Doesn't Nancy do a wonderful job on those? :)

Happy First Blue Monday Melissa. Your Misty Blue Master Suite is so beautiful, every little detail is just perfect, soft romantic and elegant. totally inspiring, Kathy.

Alisa Lucas-Brown said...

Oh Melissa,
I love your soft and romantic Master Suite. So lovely. We do have very similar style and tastes! Lately, I have had a desire to add more blues, teals and aquas to my decor. I am experimenting with these colors a little a time. I want to add a greenish-blue to my family room for Spring. I have a new framed oil painting and it has touches of that color in it so that was my inspiration. I'm sure you will see a post around April showing the seasonal transformation. LOL!
Smiles,
Alisa
