Our Master Bedroom Revealed

If you have been following along with our house design since this time last year (seriously, how has it been a year), then you might recall that we originally intended to go hard in on our Master Bedroom and paint the thing dark green.

Welp, I chickened out.

Once we started getting all of the color in the kitchen and investing in the dining room wallpaper, having this super dark bedroom just started to feel like too much.  So we kept the walls white and haven’t looked back since.

Our master bedroom at the old house was fairly well furnished, so we didn’t change much about it.  The campaign dresser stayed and so did the bed I fought so hard for.

It is no secret that I love good white bedding, so we stuck with it for our bedroom.  We decided to upgrade the whole bed with nice linens.  I stopped by the Peacock Alley showroom here in Dallas, decided on the perfect duvet cover and coverlet to go with our sheets and voila.

I really wanted this crisp, clean white bed to be the showcase of the room, and I thought the wall color was what was going to do it for me.  But now that I have everything in the room, I can’t see it any other way.  Adding a little color in the chairs at the end of the bed and in the throw pillows made a big difference, but in the end I think the white walls actually worked to accentuate the pieces and made the room feel more clean and in line with the rest of the house.

For those who are interested, here are some details on the bed linens we went with:

  • 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 Charlotte 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.  I mean, look at that detail shot above.  If you can believe it, it’s more beautiful in person.
  • Majorca Throw Blanket – Having a white bed is all about the textures, so finding a comfy but textured throw blanket was a big priority. While the showstopper here is Peacock Alley’s Majorca Throw, you’ll note that we actually have three throw blankets layered over each other to create even more texture. Plus, no one is fighting over them late at night when you have enough to go around.
