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