Our Bedroom Tour

I shared a tour of our bedroom a couple of years ago after our renovation and addition were complete.  It is a study in ivory, white and cream with classic wood furniture and brass fixtures.  Totally neutral like the rest of our house, which gives me the opportunity to add touches of color and accents each season.

This season I added Cottage Stripe Pillows (Large 22" Square, $46) + Whale Prints from my store.

Our brass lantern is The Concord Lantern from Cape Code Lantern Co. finished in Antique Brass.  This is the Large size, but we have two of the smaller size hanging above our kitchen island.   We also have the wall mounted Concord Lantern on the exterior by the front door. We purchased this fixture almost 6 years ago when we moved back from Massachusetts.  It used to hang above our dining table!  When we bought it I knew it was a piece that I would take with us wherever we go.

Our nighstands were custom made by D.R. Dimes.  More information about them below in the original post!

These Cottage Stripe Pillows are part of my Summer Nautical Collection, but I could definitely keep them here all year.


Fall 2016

It occurred to me that have never shared a proper tour of our bedroom since we've moved into the house.  It took me a while to gather the furniture and hang some things on the walls.  I like to keep our bedroom really clutter free and very simple.  I like a lot of cream (obviously...) and turned to our favorite boutique hotels and inns for inspiration.

The biggest challenge for me was to find a chest of drawers and coordinating night stands that weren't too new and weren't too matchy-matchy.   (I can provide information for the night stands if you are interested.)

We have white hotel bedding with white embroidery (Pottery Barn) and a pick-stitch quilt.  We don't keep too many pillows on the bed because I always want it to be soft and ready for lounging at all times. We use standard pillows (behind), Euros in front (with an H, from Pottery Barn), then the Rectangle Acorn Block Print Pillow, $28.  I change the accent pillow seasonally to set the tone for the room.  Because our room is so neutral, that little pillow change with a small vase of a seasonal flowers on the bedside really does make our entire room feel fresh for each time of year.

This is Mike's side, so the English Game Fowl Prints are a good fit.  These are 8x10 prints framed in the 11x14" frames (that will be restocked soon).

Game Fowl Prints, $4-6

I'm so obsessed with this gold laurel wreath... I bought it at a small antique home decor store in Rochport.  I've searched high and low for it online to no avail.  I will keep trying to get my hands on some for the store. 

The Rectangle Acorn Block Print Pillow, $28.

This luxe Baby Alpaca throw (in Cocoa) is our newest cozy addition to the room.  It is such a treat.

The night stands are from D.R. Dimes, custom made in New Hampshire.  I looked everywhere for a barley twist side table that was the perfect finish and size.  I finally found this design at D.R.Dimes.  They were investment pieces to be sure, but they are the real deal.  They will never go out of style, the cherry finish will develop a beautiful aged patina over time... and they will be our bedside tables for the rest of our lives ; )

The most pleasant surprise in our room was finding these custom Roman Shades from Home Depot.  They were an incredible price at around $125 for each (compared to $400 at other sources I checked!).  I am super impressed with the quality and the linen fabric.  We selected Milan Feather, it is a perfect match to our Benjamin Moore Navajo White (different from Sherwin Williams).  I added black-out liners to these in our room to help with keeping the room cool from the afternoon sun and, of course, to keep it very dark at night.  I may add a grosgrain border accent to them at some point... what do you think?

One of the design decisions that I stuck by was using a french door for the entrance for our room.  It is just a standard 30" door opening, but it really does make a huge impact of the feel of the room - much more special and elegant.

 I framed this photo of us from our wedding that is printed on canvas fabric and hangs in our little foyer area of the room.

Finding room for adequate closet space was definitely a struggle when we were drawing up the plans for the addition.  We traded a larger walk-in closet for a 2nd floor laundry room.  Instead we designed these french door his and hers closets.  I have to say I LOVE this design.  Not only do the doors give our room more architectural interest, it is so nice to open the doors and be able to see and access everything easily.  Also, it is not another room to keep clean.  I used to feel like our old walk-in closet was a recipe for a mess and dust.  At some point I'll open these up and show you the design.

Another set of french doors leads to our bathroom.  Here is a post dedicated to the details of our master bathroom.

  1. Jenny, WOW! Such a retreat. Your design is impeccable-- you balanced the woods and creams so well. Your nightstands are beautiful-- worth the wait! As always, thank you for sharing. Happy Friday :)

  2. I love your bedroom, bathroom and closet. Thanks so much for sharing these with us. You are an inspiration!

  3. Jenny, where did you find the box spring frame covered in fabric like that? Did you do it yourself? We have always used a bedskirt to cover the box springs and I've always disliked it. Yours looks so clean!

  4. Will you share where you found the lights in your bathroom please?

  5. Love your blog Jenny! Thanks for the roman shade tip! Is the shade in your bathroom from home depot also?

  6. Beautiful Master! Would you mind sharing the information on the night stands? Thanks, Heather

    Beautiful bedroom - well done! Your bed looks like the one from Pottery Barn. If so, can you please share which fabric and color you used? I also have Navajo White and am getting ready to purchase the Lewis Slipcovered Headboard from PB but torn which will look best. Many thanks, Leslie
