Well - I broke the expert's rules (what? moi? break a rule? ha!) by not making decorating my master bedroom a priority. Mr. Worthing and I have lived here for over five years and I'm just now getting around to decorating that room!
It is a rather large room with a sitting area (which for me, is a wasted space, but the positive side is that it gives me more space to decorate!). There is a tray ceiling above the area where the bed is located. The room is not very bright because there are only three single windows in the entire bedroom. As you can see in these photos, it is a blah, disheveled space.
My personal taste is an updated mix of traditional and transitional style. To keep cost to a minimum, I'll be using furniture that I already own. My furniture is pretty traditional in style, so the updated look will come from the fabrics, lighting, accessories, paint and other decorative elements that I choose. Here's a little sneak peek at some of the accessories and fabrics that will be going into the room.
In Part II, I'll show you an easy way to keep the cost of drapery hardware down (shhhh! it's a big secret!) and the mounted window treatments.
