master bedroom happenings: gold + more gold {and a little paint}

when we last left off on what’s happening in our master bedroom, we had just painted the walls a deep indigo color (which, let me say, we are LOVING – its moody color keeps our room darker so much longer in the morning!):



and, as i mentioned before when i presented the mood board for our master bedroom, i’m planning to bring in a collection of metallic items to bring some sheen to the room:


well, since i shared this mood board, a few items have hopped into my cart at Target (AKA my “happy” place). take a look!

first up: Target’s paint dipped basket, at $20.99, which i currently have turned upside down (!) and am using as a tiny table:


the other item is not as new – in fact, i mentioned it back in this post of yore – but i’m so excited about it: this rocking iron wire side table in, you guessed it, GOLD, that i got for a steal at $39.99 at Target semi-recently:


i’m also in the process of DIYing a sunburst mirror from wood shims, using this awesome tutorial from Katie at Bower Power – hoping to share the fruits of that effort soon!

the last part of today’s update on the master bedroom involves paint…but not on the walls!

after painting the walls such a dark and moody color, i quickly realized that i wasn’t too crazy about the stark white color of the tray ceiling. so, after much debate with a lovely lady at our favorite local paint store, i’ve selected a slightly more warm color to bring up to the ceiling: Benjamin Moore’s Lacey Pearl. take a look:


of course, how this color shows up on your computer screen may differ a lot from the actual hue, but Lacey Pearl has been called “the world’s palest neutral grey.” it’s a step above one of my most favorite colors, BM’s Abalone, in the paint deck. {oh! speaking of paint decks, i totally bought my very first paint deck the other day, full of Benjamin Moore colors – it’s crazy how buying a paint deck can make you feel like such a grown-up!}

now that the ceiling is painted, i can’t wait to bring in a new light fixture – maybe in May? i’ve been eyeing this one forever and ever – it’s from Young House Love’s line at Shades of Light.

also, after painting the ceiling, we also moved around the furniture in the bedroom, brought in a new (to us – it’s an antique!) chair and accessories galore, all of which i’m so excited to show you soon soon soon – stay tuned!
