I stopped by the house today and holy guacamole, it’s a house. I know that sounds silly, but for so long all of the work was not visible so it didn’t look like much was going on. I felt like I was doing all of this prep work for something that wasn’t going to be done any time soon…until now. Framing is done. The roof, windows, plumbing and HVAC are going in next week.
It’s all happening.
In other news, if you’ve been following along on Insta Stories then you’ve likely noticed that my focus has shifted to the plan for the bedrooms in the last weeks.
Our master bedroom is fairly well furnished and I don’t intend to change much about it. The campaign dresser isn’t going anywhere and neither is the bed I fought so hard for. The only major change for me here is the paint color.
It is no secret that I love good white bedding, so we have decided to stick with it for our bedroom. A few months ago I got some monogrammed Peacock Alley sheets, so we’ve decided to upgrade the whole bed with nice linens. After stopping by the Peacock Alley showroom here in Dallas last week, I decided on the perfect duvet cover and coverlet to go with our sheets.
Point being, I really wanted this crisp, clean white bed to be the showcase of the room, and I needed a wall color that was going to make it pop. I decided to go with a hunter green. Everything else, neutral.
It’s not much, but here are the details on the pieces we are adding:
- Peacock Alley Cadence Duvet Cover & Shams – I love this duvet cover because it is the perfect set of traditional lace linens to go with my more modern room (again with that balance). It is part of Peacock Alley’s Modern Heirloom collection, so it was pretty easy to come to a decision here.
- Peacock Alley Oxford Coverlet & Shams – When putting together a white bed, one of the most important things is to make sure your linens have a lot of texture so they stand out. I liked this coverlet because it was a modern complement to the more traditional duvet I had chosen.
- Madera Wall Sconce – I have had a minor obsession with wall sconces as of late. Maybe it’s because you get the lamp without losing the space on your nightstand, or maybe it’s because they feel more modern to me. Regardless, the wood plate on this one really warmed it up and I felt would complement the simplicity of the room. It also can be hard-wired or plugged in, a big bonus once we start installing.
