So after I went dark in the master bedroom all the furniture that we had just didn’t work. Fast forward a couple years and this is what the bedroom looks like now. We got a black metal bed, Alchemy in matte black, from CB2 which blends in perfectly with the walls. I am a huge fan of all furniture from CB2. The black curtains (from Ikea) also blend into the wall to create one big expansive space with no boundaries. I am really happy with the way this room turned out. It is still one of my favorite rooms in the house.
I finally got around to having a vinyl chair that Scott and Kiran trash-picked upholstered. The fabric is a wonderful wool felt in a bright pink.
I can’t say enough good things about this HUGE Hovet mirror from Ikea. I have been wanting to get it for a long time and I’m glad that I finally did it. I was worried it would be too large for the space but it fits perfectly in this spot.
Scott just installed a row of Ikea’s Pax wardrobes on the wall opposite the bed. This was a nightmare project. None of the floors or walls are level in this house and it took us forever to get the wardrobes level and looking good. We ended up having to cut the baseboards because they were too high to accommodate the baseboard niche in the Pax wardrobes. They are finally up but I’m putting off painting them the same color as the walls. They would look amazing the same color as the walls but I really don’t have the energy to tackle it. I’m also putting off installing lights over the closet door. I’ve ordered some rose gold looking handles for the wardrobe from Schoolhouse Electric. Once I throw those on and paint the radiator I will be done with this room. Perhaps some time down the road I will revisit painting the wardrobes. I really wish Ikea would make these in black. The brown-black color that they come in are just awful.
The windows are filled with hanging plants and succulents. The light in this room is gorgeous and all my plants thrive in this window.
Aah this shoe shelf…I am still in love with this. I don’t go out as much as I used to so a lot of my high heels just sit on this shelf. At least I get to admire them and reminisce about the good old days!
I painted these lampshades in Periwinkle fabric dye. They turned out much better than I anticipated. My next project in this room is to paint the ugly white radiator (black of course).
