Open House Tour - Master Bedroom

We're back! It's home touring time over at 4 Moms 35 Kids, and this week we're showing off bedrooms. I've chosen to show my master bedroom this week and I'll hopefully show the other bedrooms next week. The reason for this is, I already had these pictures from when I got new bedding, and for the most part the bedroom looks the same, so I didn't have to take new pictures. One less thing in my already way too busy day LOL!

The master bedroom is probably my favorite room in the house decor-wise. It's 15X14 so it's a good size room, not too big but big enough for my husband J's favorite part of the room, the king sized bed. For the first 15 years of our marriage we had a full size bed and it worked just fine for us. Then J decided he wanted a bed big enough to fit the entire state of Alaska, even though I was afraid it would be too big. Surprisingly, it fits, along with 2 night stands. I chose the bed because it has wood and wrought iron which is the type of decor I love most. I got the bedding at Kohl's (my new favorite store). It's all reversable so I can have a couple different looks, which is nice since I like to change things up every so often. The curtains I found at Target and they matched the bedding exactly.

The wall unit faces the bed on the opposite wall. This was built by my carpenter brother-in-law along with the nightstands. It started out as a much smaller design, but both my brother-in-law and J kept adding more to it, and before I knew it the wall unit took up almost the entire wall. I was not happy at first, but once it was decorated I slowly came to like it more. It has lots of storage both in drawers and shelves while still looking elegant.

The only thing that is no longer in the room is that television. It was huge, heavy, and the thing just went ZAP one day and decided it didn't want to work anymore. This is one of the "old" style tv's, not a flat screen. It went about 2 feet deep and took 2 men to load into my car so that I could run around town trying to find someone to repair it. Alas, just as I told J, no one was going to fix this because no one makes these kinds of tv's anymore. So it was trashed, and a new flat screen tv took its place, because my hubby can't live without ESPN.

And that's it for my master bedroom. Oh, were you looking for a desk or home office of some sort? Nope, not gonna find it. My bedroom is a place to sleep, enjoy a good movie, cuddling, and reading in bed, not a work space. I aim to keep it that way.

So, would you like to share your home as well? You can visit the 4 Moms here, here, here or here and link your pictures. Have a blessed day everyone!

Thanks for linking. I can see why those shelves were overwhelming at first, but they are beautiful!

Really pretty. I would never have thought of purple, but it looks really nice. You look organized and tidy...I love that! Lisa~

Hmm, now that's interesting. The colors in the bedroom are actually burgundy and sage green, but I guess the burgundy comes across as purple in the pictures. I hadn't even noticed it till I saw the comments.

I love the colors in your room and I LOVE LOVE that built-in! I need something like that, although I don't know if my room is big enough for it. I'm also still waiting for my king size bed!

Your room looks so nice and neat. I like the wood furniture & big shelving unit. I too have a gigantic king size bed and it's hard to find anything to fit it properly. I would never scale down, though, considering my husband is 6'3 & takes up a lot of space!
