Continued Bed and Bath Update~

Hi Friends and thanks for stopping by.

This week I've shared with you my master bedroom
TV cabinet redesign~
and here is the rest of the master bed and bath updates.

I've added a little floral and aqua to the toile
for the spring and summer.
I have enjoyed keeping the black toile and
changing out with a pop of color and design for the seasons.

This is the fun of having a neutral background.
Changing things out with colors and accessories.

The window above the bed
has always been a challenge to work with
and the room can't  be moved a different way due to the door going out to the patio and no other long walls to work with.
So I raised the window treatment and rods higher above the window to cover the window completely then
added the iron header and side vintage arches under the sconces.
 Finally a solution for these
eyebrow windows which have been an eye sore!!
I did not design this window placement. LOL
I would have had the builder place two longer windows on each side with the night stands if I designed this.
The room still has lots of light from 4 more windows and door in the sitting area to the right across the room.

Sorry for the bad pic.
So hard to take a photo in this sitting area with the bright light.
Here is another pic of the TV cabinet I shared this week.

This is the left of the room
going into the bath.
The door to the right is the bath
and to the left is the walk-in to the dressing room closet.

Trying to figure a new door idea, just haven't come up with it yet.
I'm thinking of double French doors for the bath and a single for the closet.
Above is another view of the sky I shared in my last post.
It runs the room and on into the bathroom.
Something like a giant framed sky light.

The desk is a vintage roll top and 
Limited Edition by Riverside.
The chair is from an old set my mother was given going back to the late 1800's early 1900's.

Walking into the bath, the updates are
the sinks with Imperial Coffee Granite tops
and the cabinets below painted and distressed adding white appliques
to the fronts and mirror frames.
This upgrade has been a couple years in the making but I think we are finally complete
except for changing the bi-fold doors.

Under the sinks, I painted the foot kick black
and then my hubby added the bun feet to give them a free standing appearance
of a furniture piece.
The tile is appearing darker then it really is.
In person it is more of a soft sand color.

The backsplash for both sinks is a smaller tile version of the floor tile.
The room is too small and narrow to use another pattern.
Keeping it the same opens things up and gives a larger appearance.
Next to this sink is the water closet in case you might be wondering
where it was here.
 Basically another enclosed room with a door.

For the tub I kept the original hardware on the Jacuzzi jets
and found a place in Dallas to repaint them baking on the rubbed oil bronze finish
taking them from the original gold to this update.
We saved tons by doing it this way and it worked out great and water friendly.
For the shower,
we had to change out the entire fixture
when the tile was installed keeping with code for a shower stall.
We nearly went with a no frame shower, but in the end, liked this better.
In the pics it looks like the cabinets and wall color are the same,
but they really are different shades in the same group of color giving the room a bigger look.
It works since the room is sort of long and narrow.

Love the granite with the light cabinets.

Now on to the next project~~
Behind this door is a dressing room closet.
We are reconfiguring it to function better.

Stayed tuned, I'll share that soon.

Till then, I'm going to be enjoying this new magazine that just arrived,
Country Sampler's
Prairie Style

See you next time and thanks for the visit.

Smiles and Southern DayDreams!

Your bedroom and bathroom are beautiful. I love the sitting area in your bedroom.

Jan Hermann said...

Oh, Celeste, the sitting room is my Favorite spot! It's just gorgeous. Well, everything about your Bedroom and Bathroom is so gorgeous, comforting and creative. I too, prefer to have a neutral background and enhance it with color pops! It's the best way to go!!

Your bathroom is very pretty, Celeste. I love that chandelier, too. I'd love to take a long soak in that tub. Our bathroom is really long and narrow {almost like a galley kitchen would be} and we also have a water closet and our clothes closet at the end of the bathroom. Our doors are solid doors, which we really keep open all the time anyway. The only time we close them is when one of us has to be up super early and we don't want to disturb whoever is still sleeping.

I really enjoyed the tour of your bedroom and bath,Celestina! What a beautiful space, I don't know which room I would spend the most time in:) The sitting area is so pretty, and I love the ledge at the ceiling for display. And of course I adore toile, and think the spring touches you added to your black and white are perfect. Wow, your bathroom is a sanctuary in and of itself! The chandelier over the tub is gorgeous, and I love the oil rubbed bronze thru out the room, and all of your other special touches! Great job!

Sola Scriptura said...

How very lovely! I like what you did with the window treatment, it looks great! The sitting area is perfect for reading a book or watching it rain. You're decorating skills are extraordinary!

Love seeing your beautiful bedroom and adjoining bath Celeste. It looks so peaceful and relaxing. The TV cabinet transformation is amazing and it looks so different. Love the little sitting area, the over the tub chandelier and the blue painted sky!! I think you solved the problem of the bed in front of the window in a beautiful way. Sometimes we just have to work with what we are given. Looks like it is time to relax for a little bit. I always enjoy seeing your transformations. Thanks for sharing and blessings to you. Linda


It's so PRETTY! You are so blessed to have a huge bedroom and bathroom!
It turned out lovely!

Hello, I laughed over the eyebrow windows, some designer had a what he thought was a good idea. But I bet he never went curtain shopping. I have always made my own curtains because it seems all my windows were odd sizes. I think having a bedroom that is so calming and cozy is worth all the work and design! I hope you have sweet dreams!
Blessings, Roxy

divine and the cabinet turned out just perfect!

Linda @ Life and Linda said...

Celestina, wow, such a beautiful look, complete with the sitting area and bath. Just fabulous. Love the chandys...I adore sconces too. You have created a lovely ambiance to relax and enjoy. xo

Your master bedroom and bath is so lovely. They look very cozy, and a few things really caught my eye, like that gorgeous chandelier. The desk in your bedroom is very similar to the one I have in my bedroom, but I had to take the top off because I got a new computer and it wouldn't fit on top of the desk until I removed the top part. I really liked the black countertops in the bathroom also, they are lovely.

You have a gift of decorating, my friend, and it really shows in your home. It is definitely one of my favorite things to do too.

Have a blessed weekend.

Your bedroom and bath are so beautiful! I love the neutral colors that you can add any color you like to. The drapes are perfect behind the bed and frame it nicely. I will be featuring this at What We Accomplished Wednesday tomorrow evening. Have a great week!
