House Tour: Master Bedroom

Happy Saturday! I've spent the day cooped up indoors. I'm dying to get outside before winter finally makes an appearance here in Oklahoma on Monday with teen temperatures and snow. But... aches and a particularly pesky cough is keeping me couch-bound. Boo.

So... what better time than to show off pictures of my priso- I mean, beautiful new house!

To be honest... I could spend all day every day in this house. I'm absolutely in love with it. If someone told me how wonderful being a homeowner is, I would have ditched the apartment years ago.

I know all of the creaks and noises. I kill bugs fearlessly. (Ha!)

And I spend waaaaay too much money at the flea market. Like, waaaay too much.

(Don't worry, dad! I'm being responsible with my finances! Sorta!)

As I complete various rooms of my house, I will post pictures. As of now... my bedroom and kitchen are "done." My biggest projects? My office/guest room and my living room.

I think I'll do a "before" and "after" of my office/guest room... starting tomorrow with my inspirations.

So without further ado, let's start in the master suite, shall we?

This is my room from the hallway. The walls are what I consider a light coffee color. My decor colors are purple and green... two of my favorites!

As you can see, I have a window directly behind my bed. At first I wasn't sure how I would like this but I love it. Especially since it's such a pretty, white-boxed window. The bedding is new from Target- and eventually I'll be buying some purple accent pillows/blankets for it, as well.

Off to the side, you can see this tree branch mural on the wall. I had (and still have) a slight obsession with birds and leaves and trees, so when I first toured this house and walked into the master bedroom and saw it- I knew this house was meant to be mine!

Here's a shot from the other side of the room. You can see the mural, my closet door (no tours of the closet today!) and then my small dresser.

My newest addition is this purple NYC map from Made By Girl. I've had my eye on it for months and I was quite happy to find it under the tree from Santa!

This is another Santa gift from Pier 1- a perfect dresser accessory.

And this darling little bird jewelry holder was a Christmas gift from Leah! Another great dresser item.

There are a few things I didn't show you from my bedroom- my desk, and my big dresser. I will show you those a bit later as I continue to spruce things up.

So, there you go! Room #1 of the house tour.

Since I'm constantly looking for new ideas and inspiration, I'd LOVE to see what your bedrooms look like! Write a post about it, then include a link in the comments section below.

If you're cooped up sick like me (and I think a lot of people are!) than this is the weekend perfect project!


  1. Thanks, Kim! I told Tim I found your stuff at the Trading Post in Jenks... I'm trying not to buy all of it! :)

  2. FINALLY! I love it! I can't believe the tree branch mural was already there! That is a sign! It looks like a really good size room, I can't believe you have a big dresser and desk in there too! Can't wait to see more:)

  3. Thanks, B! Can you believe that mural?! It was most definitely a sign! And the room is plenty spacious. I think eventually I'd like to refinish the dressers & desk and make them more "grown-up." (Furniture we bought when I was in Elementary school!)
