House Tour- Master Bedroom

Let's continue our house tour in the master bedroom.
Here is what it looked like early on....

And today in 2011...

  • Wall color: Poolhouse (Sherwin Williams)
  • Duvet: West Elm Parachute duvet (Feather Grey)
  • Headboard: handmade (see post here)
  • Night Stands: Crate and Barrel Brighton
To do list:
  • find a dresser to paint grey/white and place under the tv
  • add some accent pillows
  • finish sewing the cover for the bench
  • cover some books in grey paper for the night stands
  • hang some curtains or roman shades??? 

I might actually finish a room someday....maybe...

Next week I'll post about my awesome Salvation Army finds....

West Elm Parachute Duvet Review

Our new duvet arrived last week!  I'm in LOVE!!

I love the color (feather grey).  I love how it flows!  I love how soft it is! I love how warm it is! I love how it has ties on the inside to keep the comforter from slipping!  I love how it has a slightly wrinkled look so you can't tell if I was too lazy to take it out of the dryer on time or it's just supposed to be that way!
Rave reviews from this customer!!

I put it on the bed before washing (to make sure I liked it and didn't want to send it back). 
It was perfect. 
I was then afraid to wash it because it looked so good straight out of the package
(but not washing it is obviously gross).
I then washed it according to the directions and it actually came out looking better..
and it was REALLY soft. 
Also, the dog stopped rolling on it because it smelled new. Bonus.

The only negative is that it is a little short on each side of our king bed.  If you have a queen, I would order a king to get that extra width.  Not a deal breaker for me though...just need to some coordinating bedding.

And now for the next bedroom decision....

Do the windows need something more??

I'm debating between white or light grey curtains hung something like this...

Or white or light grey Roman shades like this...

What are your thoughts?  Or am I just crazy and I should leave the windows alone?
I NEED your opinions!!!
(Don't talk to Nate before answering this! :P)

Tomorrow we'll do a full tour of the master bedroom to end the week!
