Master Bedroom Tour

Starting from scratch on any room gives me major heartburn.  The possibilities are endless, and that scares the heck out of me!  Luckily, my tighter than tight relationship with Pinterest and Houzz makes starting a new project a little less scary.  I knew going into this one, I wanted gray- and lots of it!  Grays and whites with just a pop of color (which is currently a fabulous shade of aubergine).  And, because I went monochromatic on everything that isn’t easily changeable, I can switch it out for another color at any time.  Yay!

My Inspiration:

I love Las Vegas- and I truly mean LOVE.  It is, hands down, my most favorite place on earth!  Aside from the fabulous dining experiences, nightlife and all around atmosphere of luxury and intrigue, I’m fascinated by the over the top design that goes into every high-end hotel suite.  When designing our Master Bedroom, my mind kept racing back to some of the delicious rooms that I have stayed in while visiting Sin City.  No matter which casino it is, they all seem to have their own glitz, glamour and sex appeal.  I new right away that Las Vegas was going to be my design inspiration for our new room!

Now, I’m not saying that I expected a TV embedded in our mirrors or floor to ceiling remote controlled window dressings.  After all, I am a real girl with a very ‘real’ budget.  But, I knew that I could emulate that same sexy, shiny design on my own- and be smart about it!

As my go-to decor store, Z Gallerie was the perfect place to start shopping for my statement pieces.  I knew I wanted a massive, stately bed- preferably upholstered in a luxurious velour- and accompanying mirrored furniture.  I lucked out on the bed, going with the Ginger Upholstered Bed in my fave fabric color!

Unfortunately, the mirrored side tables that I had hoped for didn’t fit into my budget at $599 a piece.  Ouch!  After weeks of scouring the internet, I ended up finding suitable replicas from a local, now defunct, discount store for $289 each.

As usual, the rest of my accessories where easily found by visiting my local Home Goods (as well as Marshalls and TJMaxx).  Oh how I love my Home Goods!

  2. This is absolutely beautiful! I painted my living room wall with this stencil and I love it! I used Dolphin fin by Behr and it turned out to look light blue instead of gray =( now, I think I will use your paint colors. Did you use the Martha Stewart metallic paint? I used it on my daughters room wall and it was a little challenging.

    • Thank you so much, Mari! Yep, Dolphin Fin does have a blue undertone to it 😦 I believe it was the MS metallic that I used in this room. The key is to keep your roller very dry when applying the metallic paint over the stencil AND not to overlap where you’ve already stenciled- I did in a few places (before knowing any better), and it left a noticeable ‘double coat’ look in those areas (but I’m probably the only person that actually noticed them lol).

  3. I have a follow-up question about the stencil. Cutting Edge shows the stencil as a “fill-in” stencil, i.e. that the metallic color would be painted first and then the gray second, but that seems odd for this project. Could you elaborate the process you used? I would love to recreate it! Thanks!

    • Hi Julie-

      You’re right. When shopping for my stencil, I had to make sure I was choosing one that was opposite- in that the patterned cut out would be the metallic and not the other way around. I did so because the metallic paint I used would have cost me millions (lol) to buy enough to fully cover the walls. I needed a stencil that allowed me to create a pattern with specialty paint over top of the normal paint in the background. I hope that makes sense 😉

      Update: notice that Cutting Edge has a all over stencil called Casablanca and one called Moroccan Dream. They are the same pattern, but Casablance create a painted background and the Morrocan Dream create the pattern in the foreground (like I did). They’ve changed the names of their patterns since I purchased because mine was called Casablanca back then.
