Master Bedroom

Mr. T and I aren't lucky enough to have family around to help with childcare, so we recently decided to each have a "day off" each month. Sunday was my day off so I chose to go to Ikea. I haven't been there in years. I was AMAZED at all they had (even crystal chandeliers now!). One thing I came across was a beautiful display of a bed with a canopy around it. On the canopy was the most gorgeous lace curtains. I know a lot of people probably think lace is old-fashioned, but I have come to appreciate it in moderation. I wasn't sure how they would look in my bedroom, but I couldn't resist. Plus, I have never loved the sailcloth curtains we have.

When I got home and hung them, I was so glad I had gotten them. I don't think the pictures do them justice.

I know they're long, but I need to reposition the rod anyway. I'm not sure if its okay for lace to pool like some other curtains do. I suppose I could always hem them a bit if necessary.

I especially love the scalloped edge and the way the light filters through them.

Somehow, they seem to highlight the textures of my euro-pillow shams ...

... and the Venetian glass mirror over the bed. I actually saw a square Venetian mirror at Ikea as well. Anyway, my plain curtains did nothing to highlight these other things.

I don't think I've ever posted a full picture of my bedroom since I painted it white so here it is.

Another view. (Please ignore the primed but not painted closet doors. Its on the to-do list!)


  1. very pretty, soft and feminine. i say raise the rod to address the length. that is a beautiful view out the window btw.

  2. I love lace too. I don't think it's old fashioned at all. I love the white room with all white accessories. It is just gorgeous. I think the drapes will be perfect when the rods are raised. Love them. Hugs, Marty

  3. It looks great! I love the overall feel of your bedroom - looks like an incredibly cozy room. Oh, and I love the primed closet!

  4. The lace curtains look lovely. I like how they pool at the bottom. How pretty it is with the sun shining through the curtain

  5. The lace curtains are fabulous. With all the other details you shared, seems lace is a perfect choice...just beautiful. Your bedroom is beautiful...peaceful and serene. Great job!

  6. Oooh, your bedroom is so pretty! Everything really ties together so nicely. I especially love all the touches of white.
