Hello again!! We just got a few more inches of snow…and here I thought we were beating old man winter at his game with this slightly warmer weather we’ve been having! Today is supposed to be 39 degrees though, so a major improvement over our recent temps for sure. It has me soooo ready for spring!
Since nothing is happening outside yet, I’m hatching up a plan for our master bedroom. It involves navy blue, walnut wood, oatmeal/natural, white, and gray…with maybe a pop of green?
I am thinking a different shade of green though, more like the one in this palette:
I just want it to be a restful and soothing oasis. : ) Those scenes look pretty peaceful, right?? : )
Onward…some photos that inspire me for this space, starting with an idea for that awkward little nook we have in there:

I am thinking that painting the back of that cubby navy with white shelves will create a very similar look to the one above. Really pretty!
Many of my inspirational photos have a slight nautical twist to them, but I like that none of them are necessarily nautical themed. I like the occasional octopus:
or the understated whale:

and even a nod to a porthole:

but I would never want a room that was completely nautical themed and had boat and sea everything.
I really liked this collected-looking room, though without the additional furniture and grandiose headboard:

I thought this bedroom seemed very relaxing and not-too-feminine:

I thought this treatment on the vaulted ceiling added so much character to the room:
(via Pinterest, but again no idea where the original is from…please let me know if you do!)
Remember, I have a perhaps overly ambitious item on my room list, which is putting faux beams on the vaulted ceiling. No idea if it will actually happen, but I think it would look really neat!
Just one more:

Of course, the inspiration pictures are exactly that—inspiration! No way our room is going to look quite like those, but it is certainly fun to look…and very helpful for me to get a general idea of what I am going for here.
Hopefully I’ll be able to start working on some projects in there this week!
