Master bedroom, My Suite Escape!

I am so excited to show you our master bedroom!  It was one of those rooms that I really did not have a clear vision for, therefore its a bedroom that I thought, I will just get to later!  I  kinda added home decor accessories here and there, no rhyme or reason to anything,  I figured I would make sense of my master bedroom later.  I really was just adding things to keep it from being an empty room!  I think that it turned out beautiful and it is one of my favorite rooms ever!  I think it is a true example of transitional decorating style.  Hopefully you will get some decorating tips from this master bedroom.

When it was first painted, I freaked out and text my sister immediately, “it is too baby blue, it is suppose to be gray”!  She kept responding with “I am sure it looks great!”  Oh my, baby blue was not what I had in my head, I had gray, a pretty light shade of gray!  I have to warn you, if you are picking out gray paint colors, know that they can read purple or blue!!  Even though I tested a LARGE sample on all the walls before it was painted, (actually tested about 5 colors before picking this one) it STILL turned out more baby blue than gray!  I was horrified and my husband was REFUSING to paint it again!

He kept saying, “just leave it up for a few days, and you will like it!”  After I had time to catch my breath and realize we still had A LOT of painting left to do, I decided to just leave it and just see what happens.   One day became a few days, which became a week!  To be honest, it is my favorite color in the whole house!  Some days it is gray, some days it is baby blue.  But it don’t matter, IT IS WHAT IT IS and I LOVE it!  I just made sure that most of the home decor accessories were a true gray!  I just love the white comforter set mixed in with it!  The whole room is very relaxing, even my girls love to be in there!!  Now if I could just actually SLEEP through the night, it would be perfect!!

Lesson to be learned:  don’t freak out and panic if a room is the wrong color, live with it a day or so and see what happens!!!  So Glad I did!!
