Bedroom Makeovers

Over the last few years, our master bedroom has undergone a few transformations.  Unfortunately, I don't have any pics of what it looked like when we first moved in.  Mainly because it was completely unspectacular. 

Originally, we decided we'd go for "Jamaican Sea."  As evidence that my taste has changed over the past 5+ years, I submit Exhibit A:

I loved the color then.  Now?  It hurts my eyes.  (Pretty awesome nightstands too, huh?)

We lived with the color for about two years then painted the room a much more subdued color, changed the bedding, removed some furniture and hung some art on the walls.  I find it's much more soothing now.

I love the mirror in the picture above, but I've never really found the right place for it in this house. The art on the wall were calendar pages and a greeting card that I had custom framed, in addition to some John Derian plates that Chris has given to me over the years.  The tray on the ottoman is a fabulous faux python tray from the equally fabulous Furbish Studio.

I'm going to miss this closet...

Moving on to the guest room...there's not much of a before and after.  Before it was a white box.  I tried faux painting the walls twice (twice!!!) and it looked horrible so I said "screw it" and just painted the room over in a neutral. 

My grandfather made the four-poster bed eons ago and it's gorgeous.  The dresser is from the 1800's and it, the bed, and the other dresser in the master bedroom all spent most of their lives in my grandfather's home in Montgomery, Alabama.  I'm really glad we were able to keep all of it in the family. 

Warning:  Ubiquitous "For Like Ever" poster up ahead:

So those are two of the bedrooms in the house.  I'll show the other one later this week.

I'm sure your improvements had a lot to do with the short time the house spent on the market.
