Tour our bedrooms

October 16, 2012

I tweaked our master bedroom a little bit last summer and showed you here. It’s changed very little since then. Or…not at all. ;) I still love the Target bedding, especially this time of year:

And the drapes go perfectly with it!:

I’ve been planning a wall treatment over the fireplace wall for years…but it’s goes pretty high up there so I’ve been avoiding that DIY:

That chair is now in the guest room – this older photo. But everything else is still exactly the same. :)

I do want to repaint that room badly, but it’s at the bottom of a long list. Very. long. list.

The Bub’s room was a labor of love – for both the nursery version and the big boy one:

Again – I’ve barely touched this room since I finished it up. I do still want to add a window seat in here, but that’s been on the list for six years, sooooo…we’ll see. Someday it will happen!

I was so worried about the navy blue before I started painting in there, but now I love it so much. Love how all the white molding pops against the blue:

And then, of course there’s the infamous guest room. Well, infamous in my head cause I keep saying I’m going to work on it and NEVER do:

It’s still painted in pastels from when my stepdaughter was younger. This one has been like this for eight years without a new coat of paint. Told you I don’t do much with the bedrooms!

  1. always love the color of the bub's room! thanks for hosting this!

  2. Your bedroom looks lovely, Sarah, and of course you know how I love your boy's room. I am glad to know that I'm not the only one who gets a room the way I like it and then leaves it for awhile. :)

    I'm linking a post to my guest room, with which I am finally, finally happy. It's gonna stay like this for some time! I remember when you posted about your stepdaughter's room years ago. Time flies, doesn't it? You could do what I did--I had professional painters working at my house on re-doing all the exterior trim (definitely NOT a DIY project for us), and I asked if they could paint the guest room for me. 1-2-3 and it was done, and for very little money--just a little add-on to the big job!

    Thanks for hosting these parties! Your parties are always fun.

  3. Thanks for hosting Sarah, I love that "big boy" room!!

  4. Wow, love that fireplace in the bedroom! I want one ;) THanks for hosting this party!

  5. I absolutely adore your darling boy's room! I always say that great rooms take time. :)

  6. I just linked up and want to thank you for hosting! Have a great week! Hugs, Penny

  7. Your bedroom looks so relaxing with the fireplace. Thank you for hosting Sarah.

  8. I just love those bedrooms of yours! Thanks for hosting!

  9. Love all of these rooms! Can't believe this is the first time I am hearing about this linkup! Love- Love -Love it!!

  10. You are so lucky to have a guest room, I would love one! I would go a little on the opulent side, since it is rarely used. Maybe use that gold chair as inspiration. On the other hand you may not want to make it too lush, your "guests" may never want to leave!

  11. I love your big checked curtains!
    Going back to see the pretty bedrooms.

  12. I think we all have a "pastel" wall somewhere in our home that needs attention. I know I was supposed to paint the entire upper floor this Summer, but it somehow? did not get done. Oops. I'm fired ;)

  13. I love the navy and white in your son's room! Thanks for hosting this link up!

  14. I love your son's room.
    I don't have a foyer OR a laundry room (worth sharing) so I'm out the next two rounds. I was able to link up the three bedrooms the five of us fight over this time, though.
    Thanks for hosting such a fun partay. :) Off to check out some links....

  15. Thanks for hosting a fun party. I can't wait to check out all the bedrooms!

    Your bedrooms are beautiful. I agree tho', the bedrooms are always last on the list :)

    Have a great week!

  16. Your bedroom is beautiful! I like your sons too. I love the rich blue walls.

  17. You have an amazing bedroom and how perfect is that fireplace. What a great retreat.

    Kim :)

  18. great party! Im in love with the touches in your big boy room, I'm working on my big boy room right now infact so this is perfect timing for my inspiration!

  19. Thank you for hosting such a great party. So much inspiration - where to start.....

  20. Oh! I love those striped curtains!
    My girlfriend had a very high fireplace so she built a faux second mantle over it. It really added a lot to that wall.

  21. Hello, new follower here! I would love to have you link up with my Clever Chicks Blog Hop this week!

  22. I'm sure I could find this info, but it may just be faster to ask! Where did you get your navy living room rug? And, what color of navy did you use in your son's room? I live them both!

  23. I love the multi-colored squares in that one photo. That is a fantastic way to create a wow factor on the cheap.

  24. Thanks so much for hosting a great party! I'm not sure where I've been to just now be finding. :) I won't be missing the next ones, ha! Your master bedroom is great!!
