Master Bedroom Phase I: Bedding

I have written about my desire to create a dream master bedroom space for the hubs and I, and I am so excited that the dream is finally coming to fruition. The house has continued to grow and spaces have continued to transform into the spaces I have imagined but there has always been, the black hole, our master bedroom. We have never had a consistent theme or really any functional pieces. I have pretty much stripped the room of any decor that we did have to disperse through out the house because I was one day going to make over our bedroom.

I have been searching for something that inspired me, something that would serve as a jumping off point for the room. I was hoping that something inspiring would be bedding, because that is such a huge focal point and large space. I had fallen in love with a few patterns from Pottery Barn, but to be honest..the thought of spending 300 dollars on bedding, makes me sick. I know it is bedding and it is so important, but why can't I get it an affordable price!?! So frustrating.

This weekend in Hilton Head, I ventured over to Home Goods and I found my diamond in the ruff! I found this beautiful duvet set!!

 A King Duvet with 2 Shams on clearance for $35!!!

I absolutely LOVED the pattern and I as I scoured the store and found even more pieces to add to our "dream master bedroom", I knew I had to get it and everything else that was in our budget!

I found this awesome HUGE purple pillow on clearance for $14 and it totally pulls out the purple color in the duvet set! SCORE

 Just gets better! The hubs and I have been talking about finding a large dog bed for our pup Zoe for our bedroom, but without knowing what direction I was going in I didn't want to spend money on a bed for her that did not match our new room. I came across the most adorable bed I have seen and it had all the colors that I needed to match the new duvet and pillow. I had to get it and I am so glad I did...#1 becauseshe is one happy pup, and #2 because of the cute little birdies on it!

 I also was able to purchase a beautiful pillow top mattress pad and an awesome ivory bed skirt with a Christmas gift that I had returned to Kohls. So it looks like our room is finally starting to come together!

(duvet, pillow, and bed skirt)

There is still SO much to do, like paint, curtains, wall decor, create a headboard, dresser (either buy or refurbish one), lamps, and I am sure the list will only continue to grow! But I am very excited about out starting off point and I can't wait to share this journey with you! If you hold out a bit and wait, you really can find something beautiful and amazing and more importantly in your budget!!

Thanks for reading! :)
