Master Bedroom Decisions

Since you all know how LOOOONG it takes me to complete a project around my house,
I thought I share the little steps along the way with our bedroom.
Slowly but surely we are making decisions for our little re-do.
Here's how things are shaping up....

Ok, if I'm being honest, the only thing we've really decided on is the wallpaper. 
Top left corner.
And LOTS of LINEN...
 For the bedskirt, headboard slip, drapes, and skirted desk. 
Also adding bamboo shades (not pictured) and
getting lovely monogrammed shams  - clearly not my monogram above! :)
Lighting is still up in the air,
I haven't found a dresser nightstand,
the pillow fabric changes daily,
(Holly hasn't seen today's choices pictured above, so they'll likely change again)
we need a new mirror with a curvy shape for over the big dresser
(still need to ask for Holly's thoughts on this), but you get the idea.

The bird prints clearly served as the color inspiration.
Also adding a little blue to the green + ivory palette made sense too.
Ties it all together.
And I do love green + ivory + blue like in the rooms below...

That's all for now.
Season finale of the "Good Wife" is on.
Such a good show. Seriously. Watch it.
(but don't start with the season finale, I mean start at the beginning and get caught up)

PS.  Thanks for all the lovely anniversary wishes! We appreciate each & every one!


  1. it's gonna turn out beautiful with whatever you decide! Can't wait to see the finished result!


  2. You have such great taste, Tessa. And a great consultant and friend in Holly. And no worries if you are slow. It took me eight months just to hang two mirrors! And the chandelier is still sitting on the floor...eight months later! Live first, decoate second (and blog after that)!


  3. I'm in the process of doing Ella's room and I'm so slow to make decisions. One day, I want this, the next day it's something else. I'm glad I'm not the only one. I *think* I want to do an upholstered headboard for her.....are you making yours or buying? I want to do a slipcover too either way. Good luck with making a decision!

  4. it's going to be drop dead gorgeous! love it all! xoxo

  5. Tessa, those images are all so pretty and I know your bedroom will be too. Staying tuned to see where you go with this.

  6. Just want to say I LOVE your inspiration board..the colors, lots of linen, birds....all some of my most favorite things. Can't wait to see the finished product!! Its going to be beautiful.

  7. Hello,

    How exciting! Love the color scheme and the wall paper. It's going to look so pretty. Can't wait to see more. I just saw the season finale this morning after drop off. Such a good show!!! Have a great rest of the week.

  8. Have fun--it will be gorgeous and sooo restful. I like The Good Wife, too, but I kind of lost track this year. On your advice I will start back at the beginning.

  9. Love it all - you can't go wrong! You have great style and a great designer! So excited to see the finished product!!!

  10. Tessa + Holly = Dream Team. I can't wait to see the room when it is finished!

  11. Tessa,

    Love all you ideas for the bedroom redecoration. You and Holly are a good team.

    Loved the season finale of "The Good Wife!

  12. Love your choices for the moment! You have a great eye and I really like the mirror you chose! Your inspiration pics are all also soooo pretty!! I can't wait until it's all complete! Oh, and btw, Happy Anniversary! Thanks for your sweet comment - really thoughtful!

  13. I am soooooooo jealous! I would LOVE for Holly to help me!
