We Have Blinds! (Sneak Peek of the Master Bedroom in Progress)

After talking about window treatments for almost a year, I thought you might like to see what we finally got. Ta-da:

It’s probably very anticlimactic after all that talk but I could not be happier. They’re white linen with blackout lining and I got the same ones for the bathroom and one of the guest rooms.

This is the sitting area of the master bedroom and it’s where I go to read (which these days is never). I’m really happy with how the space is coming together working just with what I have. The sofa was a hand-me-down from my parents. I had intended to paint and reupholster it but once it was in place, I actually liked how the dark wood and cream worked with the gray and white in the room. So it’s staying as is. The cushions are all old ones from my stash. I just need to get a side table.

Once I find one and get art up on the walls, I’ll show you the rest of the room . . .

    These are stunning! You will be so glad you spent the extra money and went for blackout lining. Blinds are something that I hate to spend money on, but they often make the biggest difference in the room.

    What a difference window treatments can make! Our new plantation shutters arrive in a few weeks and I can’t wait!!
    Yes, what gray did you use? I’m about to go with BM Pale Oak for the living room…

  3. Hi Ally! Your visit was a nice surprise…so happy you stopped by!

    I know what a huge decision window treatments are…so Congratulations, they look great! We’re still living in a fishbowl five months after moving into our new house. Still not sure which direction to go…Anthro has some curtains that are appealing to me (as well as wallpaper!). Luckily, we live on a very wooded plot of land (a Seattle bonus).
    Can’t wait to see the rest of your room.
    xo J~

  4. they look great. thumbs up for blackout lining..and your reading nook looks so cute.
    The reading nook in my mbr is lacking a comfy settee like this one. cant wait to see which you you go with the reupholstering.

    escapade: I’m sooooo jetlagged – walking around like a zombie over here!

    Ann: Thanks for saying that. It makes me feel so much better (and less like a crazy person)!

    Mary Ann: Great minds is right! Linen drapes are next! :)

    Thanks for all the nice feedback, everyone!
