Master Bedroom Light and Bright



 Our bedroom is not huge and it is furnished with a mish-mash of things from our previous home.  Things that would function, however, they don't match at all, so decorating is not on the top of my priority list.  However I did want to lighten things up a little for the summer and to declutter as much as possible.


 A white throw and lighter colored pillows replaced all the brown tones that were here.


My side of the bed with the family photos in the white frames.





 Hubby's side with an orchid plant, and a little dish to hold all his pocket things.


 Across from the bed is the armoire that holds the TV and has drawers for more storage.  You can also see my jewelry armoire and the opening to the masterbath.


 Cozy and simple, but it functions and I love the lighter and cooler look.  I do enjoy the little settee and the chair when I want a spot to getaway from it all and just relax.  I can either read, watch TV or look outside at the trees and plants.  Great space to relax.

I am linking to the following parties:

Open House Thursday @ No Minimalist Here
Feathered Nest Friday @ French Country Cottage
Home Sweet Home Friday @ The Charm Of Home
Flaunt It Friday @ Chic On A Shoestring Decorating

Thanks so much for stopping by, I always look forward to your visits.

  3. I think your bedroom is a great size, Marty! Love how light it is and you've got some great pieces in here. My hubby has a little dish for his things, too, on his side of the bed. I guess it's a hubby thing!

  11. I love your bedroom, it' so fresh and full of light! You just changed the bedding and the decoration looks wonderful! It's incredible how hubbys's side kind of look alike, they always need a bowl, or dish for change and maybe keys?!, where we always have the family pics...are the vintage pictures of family too? You did a good job Marty.
    Lots of hugs.
