Birmingham Home & Garden Inspiration Home, part 2

Want to see some more of the 2011 Birmingham Home & Garden Inspiration Home we started sharing with you last week? Of course you do!

The Birmingham Home & Garden Inspiration Home Master Bedroom

Since the majority of the first floor of the home was painted the same color, we chose a different shade for the Master Bedroom to give the room its own personality. The walls are painted Benjamin Moore ‘China White’ and the wood planked barrel-vaulted ceiling is whitewashed with a 50/50 mixture of China White paint and water. An amazing antique rug from Paige Albright Orientals covers much of the dark-stained oak floors. Drawing from the colors found in the rug, and from the antique church attendance roll, we highlighted the room’s white color palette with different shades of grey and blue.

An antique church attendance roll from The Nest in Homewood. We'd love to pass along the info for you to purchase it, but it's already sold!

The bedding is from Suite Dreams (our next door neighbor in Mountain Brook!). We mis-matched a pair of chests on either side of the bed–one mirrored and one a faux silver leaf. The chests and settee–which is covered in a fun floral print that keeps the room from being too serious–are from Alabama Furniture Market. The pair of matching lamps are from Mulberry Heights Antiques.

In the adjacent Master Bathroom, we carried on the white theme creating a restful and soothing space.

Our friends at Triton Stone Group introduced us to these big ‘Alabama White’ marble tiles–less grout means less cleaning and upkeep and the larger tiles give the shower a fresh and up-to-date feeling. Wouldn’t you love to relax in this bathroom?
There’s still a whole other floor of the Inspiration Home to share…more to come soon!

  1. One of my favorite rooms! Love the settee. Also, what I loved about the entire house and especially in this room was the lime washed insets of the tray ceilings. I think you are going to start a trend for updating all those tray ceilings! Love this look. M.


  2. Very soothing! Can’t wait to see more.
    Few questions.
    How much is the headboard? What height is it?
    How do you decide if/when to paint rooms to give them their own personality versus it looking random. I’m scared to do the same in my small house. Thanks!


    • Hi Jennifer–the headboard is not ours, but is from Suite Dreams in Mountain Brook, AL If you give them a call at 414-1922 for details.

      A blog post on different colors throughout a home is a great idea…we’ll work on one!


  3. Beautiful! Love the soft soothing colors, and the fact that it looks like the floor tile is not a white grout! Easier to keep clean. Can you post the name and style of the floor tile, please.


  4. Amazing all-around! Can you please give the name/brand of the floor tile in the shower? It’s an unusual shape that I’ve never see before!! Love it!!
