Recently, I have received a ton of questions about sources for our bedroom so I have tried to gather them here.
Here’s where it began.
We even addressed the light switches because…
Yep. Here’s that light switch makeover story.
Parisian Iron Gate Table Lamps, RH with French rectangular linen shades lined in gold silk.
About burlap pillows.
There are some awesome ones HERE, and here are a few I likey:
Love turned wood candlesticks? Me too.
Find some lovely contenders HERE, and here is a set of 3:
The wall treatment is Stikwood (Hamptons). It is reclaimed wood (pine) with a painted, very rustic finish that is a gorgeous white – not creamy and just a bit of light grey weathering. No nails or glue, just peel and stick. We installed it in 3 hours, and you can read that story HERE.
Our wall was bumpy and ugly from bad repairs, and I knew anything would make it look better. But this treatment surpassed our expectations because of the subtlety. It took no getting used to because it looks natural and not like a Hollywood set or over-bearing as so many stock photos suggest.
My sconces are vintage, and the curtains are DKNY found at Homegoods (they were purchased as temporary placeholders until I found the perfect Belgian linen ones – but when I found the perfect ones, I put them in the Arizona master bedroom and foolishly sold them with that house…boo!).
I have two benches in here – one at the foot of the bed, another at the window. I cut a vintage Matelasse coverlet with scalloped edge detailing in half to create two “slipcovers” to drape over them casually.
We have owned the cottage style pieces for many years. It was designed by Chris Madden. The furniture was antique white, and I lightly brushed on a glaze of BENJAMIN MOORE Revere Pewter and water, for a linen weave effect so the original color glows through like candlelight. I didn’t think too long or hard about it and just went for it. When a color is bothering me, I don’t have much patience like I do with other matters – and I am a happy girl with a paintbrush in my hand. I can’t tell you how much better the bronze hardware looked after the paint treatment!

Rustic Knotty Alder Doors
We replaced hollow core 6-panel white doors with rustic knotty alder solid planked doors made by Pacific Entries. They add quality, character, and durability to the space and look so smart with white trim. I wanted the master bath to be a serene oasis and stay all white so I painted the side of the door facing the bath, white, and I absolutely love it. It looks so old and French farmhouse gorgeous!
They’re like buttah, and the pics don’t do them justice – a timeless design, and they get better with age.
Two waffle knit coverlets by Piu Belle: here are a few lovely options…
5″ White Oak Hardwood finished on site, left natural with a matte finish.
Find Leaner Mirror Options RIGHT HERE.
This mirror originally had a black frame, and I gave it an antiqued paint treatment, mixing several different greys with a bit of plaster then finishing it with an antique (meaning tinted with umber) wax.
In My Closet
I love having my own closet. I found the vintage dresser on Craigslist and painted it with Annie Sloan Paris Grey chalk paint. The mirror is old, and I stenciled with this Springtime in Paris stencil has moved around the house for years. I hung a vintage crystal chandelier (made in Sweden – see some possibilities HERE) in here, and it adds so much femininity.
The ceiling is vaulted which gives it a very lofty feeling in person. If you saw this short video of me walking around the house, you get a better sense of the proportions:
Linen Slipcovered Chair
The Belgian linen chair and pillow are RH. Here is a similar set of 2 chairs:
Oh, the master bath had some issues before we gutted it.
I used to have this bench below in here – but moved it to the new bathroom we created downstairs.
Hope this helps! Let me know if you have more questions.
Peace to you right where you are.
