Farmhouse Master Bedroom

 Welcome to one of my favorite rooms of our new house!

We took a risk with the intense paint color, but we haven't regretted it for a second!
 With a huge white headboard and white bedding, the color is a perfect contrast.

I wanted to add a pop of color and I love a bold pattern... in small amounts so Premier Prints Chipper in chartreuse from was the answer for me.

To save money and leave my options open (because you know I love change) I chose to just add a topper to the Ikea Ritva panels.  I didn't even sew them together.  The curtain rod rings hold both pieces of fabric (curtain and topper) together.  To let the light in, we currently have Ikea sheers behind the heavier curtains.  I can sleep through daylight with no problem, but my sweet man is thinking that some blinds will be a better choice soon.
 Another way we saved money was refurbishing the lamps.  Two buffet lamps from Kirklands were hanging out in the attic.  I didn't like the color or the shade, but the tall height was perfect for our super high bed.
A coat of metal spray paint and two new shades were all they needed:
Total cost for "new" lamps: $15

Eventually I would like to paint all of the wood furniture white.  When I have lots of time on my hands I'll paint my furniture and learn to quilt.  For now, I've learned to accept love it as it is.

If I ever want to change the feel of the room I could easily do so with just a few toss pillows (wouldn't coral be fun?!) and new fabric on the windows.  But for now, the blue and green are soothing and happy.

Oh my goodness! My master bedroom is a very similar shade of blue, the details are white, but I chose yellow for a pop. I ordered my fabric for curtains from, and it is yellow and white, but the EXACT same pattern! How funny! We also have some pine furniture in our room that I would prefer to be painted white, but well, maybe I'll get to that someday! I love what you did with your room though! :) I don't even remember how I stumbled on your blog a couple of years ago, but I love it!
