~our master bedroom~{and a surprise giveaway}

Not sure why this room had been neglected for so long.
I guess because I was stuck. I knew what I wanted, so I thought....

One day I got up the nerve to email Holly Mathis.

I thought if anyone could help me, it would be her. And yep, she rocked it.
She not only helped, but she answered my many text messages and late night emails very promptly,
and kindly I might add.


Here is what I started with. Not horrible, but not great.
{click on any photos to enlarge}



The color was Fossil Beute by Ralph Lauren and it was a suede look. The nightstands were too small and while the chandelier was ok, it didn't really fit the space.

Would you like to see the after?


I thought today I would just show photos and tomorrow I will follow up with details.














A huge thank you to Christine, the owner at Trimood Photography for taking these photos!

And, how would one of you like that sign I have above my bed? The owner and artist at Pink Marmalade Designs has offered one of them to one of you lucky My Sweet Savannah Readers! All of their signs are handmade with love right here in the USA!

Leave me a comment on this post and you'll be entered! I will announce the winner back here on Friday along with the custom pet portrait winner from yesterday's giveaway!
I hope you enjoyed the new and improved master bedroom!
xoxo

This phrase is our favorite and we actually had it in our vows to one another. Would absolutely be overjoyed to have this in our NEW home ;)
