In the last year we have painted our master bedroom a color that I just absolutely love!

, Accessorizing the Master Bedroom, The color is Behr Ultra Pyramid Gold. It was a long road to this color. We first picked out a color at the store, bought 2 gallons of it, brought it home, started painting, and I hated it. It looked like a flesh or makeup color–not attractive. I decided I would rather eat the cost of the paint instead of living with a color that I hated. We then discovered that the store would let you buy  small 7.5 oz trial sizes. Yahoo! We bought 3 different colors, and finally found this gold color that is just what I wanted.
I have  so learned that a color can look drastically different in your home with it’s unique lighting, than what it did at the store.  A bamboo color I had picked for our living room ended up looking like a fluorescent  green, and so our living room with very high ceilings had to have three additional coats of paint to cover it up. I have learned my lesson!
Anyway, now the room is painted, and decluttered.

Remember this!? Yikes! Anyway, that’s history, and I am ready to put the finishing touches on the room.

My windows have been bare, and I really didn’t want long curtains that collect dust and have to be vacuumed frequently since I have asthma.  However, the windows  needed some color and to look more “finished,” and so I settled on colorful valences.

My lamps were kind of  “blah” so I thought I would try and give them a facelift.

I tried ribbon, flowers and fabric, but they looked like a bad arts and crafts project. So I switched them out with some lamps from another room, which I’ll show you in a minute.

I needed something to hang on the empty wall above the bed. So I pulled this wreath out of storage and added some warmer color flowers and a ribbon to tie together the colors in the room. You’ll see it in my after photos.

 This clock which I thought worked well with the colors and decor in the room was a mere $6.00 at a discount store.

I bought some pillows at Target to complement and unite the color theme in the room. I am not a fan of 15 pillows on the bed that have to be removed at night; I’m just too practical for that. For me though, a couple of pillows are just perfect.

Ok, here are my after shots:

The curtains make it so warm and cozy looking, and no one who knows me will be surprised  that they are plaid, because I love plaid and stripes!

These lamps look sooooo much better than the plain ones with cream shades, and the wreath adds so much cheerful color.
I love how it looks now, so warm and colorful and inviting. I am now sold on the fact that accessorizing is a must to add those finishing touches to a room that make it really inviting.
