My 2013 Holiday Home

I'm back today with a little look at my 2013 Holiday Home. Truthfully, my holiday decor this year is not a huge departure from the decor you may have seen in the past couple of years. I did change up my tree and my mantle a little. I also decided to simplify a little this year and not let the glitter bomb explode all over the house! I love the cleaner, toned down look of my holiday home this year. I hope you enjoy it too!

I hope this Holiday season is bringing you lots of joy!

Local Client Project Reveal: Master Bedroom

Hello, friends! I hope all my American readers had a wonderful Thanksgiving! We filled our bellies and our hearts while celebrating with our family at my Mother in Law's home. I really love this time of year and the many opportunities to gather with friends and family!

As I mentioned before, I am busting my buns to finish up a few of my local client projects by the end of the year. This Master Bedroom was one of those projects. I actually scheduled this Master Bedroom install for the day after Thanksgiving. I guess it was a good way for me to work off all the extra calories I consumed!

My client contacted me about making over her Master Bedroom for her and her soon to be new Husband. She was getting re-married and her husband was going to be moving into her home with her 4 children. She requested that I create a space that the Newlyweds could have a fresh start in and call their own. She was open to replacing all of the furniture and the bedding. The only thing she wished to stay was the faux painted wall behind her bed. It is a pretty dusty gray/blue color with a metallic silver faux treatment. I knew I could work with it. With all the expenses associated with her upcoming wedding, I also needed to make sure to stick to the budget she gave me and give her the most bang for her buck. Here is what the bedroom looked like the first time I saw it...

And what it looks like now...

The largest impact in this room comes from my decision to have the walls painted a soft blue gray color that compliments the faux painted wall. The new furniture, accessories and bedding I selected help turn this room into the perfect place for my newlywed clients to retreat and spend time together. My client said that the room exceeded her expectations! Mine too. :)

Stay tuned later this week for a little look at my Holiday home decor!

I hope your week is off to a great start!
