the master....

kara at steel magnolia interiors asked how the progress of my master bedroom is going...so here is a sneak peek/ all i am willing to share at this point b/c it is still a work in progress. i love my headboard- me and my hubbie made her! erin shared an article from house and home and it had an exact replica of the coveted madison by lulu dk in it....so i jumped on it and was shocked at how much i love the knock off...and its on a linen background vs. an acrylic and it cost $7 (yup, $7). lulu dk is loved in my house, my DR has moondance and my kitchen has catwalk, so this fab fits right in place! i painted my walls white (ben moore AF-25 paper mache)....and it definitely makes the room look fresh and clean...its a little institutional right now b/c of the lack of color. i searched tues. mornings for about 4 months and finally found the sheets i wanted (that gladly have an accent color)....they are peacock alley and are currently getting monogrammed (more on that later). soooooo, to make a long story short- i still need lamps, art, and the power of an accent (ha)...then i will have a full reveal of my bedroom!!

Shannon,
I don't know what's cuter - the adorable baby, or the new headboard! I love them both!! I am a sucker for baby girls - mine is 6 months. I have always loved lulu dk as well. Off to check out the replica - thanks for sharing!!!

I love that fabric. I think I saw at premier prints and I feel in love with it. I also love LULU DK patterns, but the price is so not right so this is a much better option. I can't wait to see the room all finished.

I'm also finishing up my bedroom and I've only posted tiny pictures. I still have lots of details to finish so im keeping the room under wraps until it's finished.

Taylor looks adorable in the bed. All nice and snuggly in her cute hat.
