I hope that everyone is having a restful Sunday!

I thought that I would share with you all my Master Bedroom.

I have totally re-done it over the last 6 months or so.

Initially, I had decided that I just wanted to re-paint my room.

I fell in love with Rhoda from Southern Living's Master Bedroom paint color.

She used a Sherwin Williams color called Blonde and I knew the minute that I saw it that it was the color for me!

I had a really nice Ralph Lauren bedding set and thought that once the walls were painted I would just incorporate the wall color into an article of bedding.

I had my daughter-in-law on the look out for a quilt that was similar to the wall color.

One day I got a call from her that she had found 2-3 different possibilities. After work I was on my way to see what she had found. Well, nothing that she had found was really what I had in mind. As I was trying to explain to her and show her the color that I was looking for, I found this Tommy Hilfiger comforter with the exact color in it!

Now, I'm going to tell you that I am a blue girl through and through. The background color of this quilt was something that I would have never looked for for myself. Needless to say, that because it had my exact wall color in it I had to have it! I met my friend Stacey from Poofing the Pillows for dinner that night and she loved it - at which point I knew that it was a keeper!!

I am also the kind of person that has to have everything coordinate. I want the matching sheets, dust ruffle, shams and throw pillows.

Well, I was able to get the matching sheets (2 sets!) and the Euro Shams. For the first time in my life I have pieced together the rest. It was just this last weekend at Kohl's that I found the needlepoint pillow and the 2 white pillows with the embroidered 'C' on them. They were pillows from a Chaps set that I had been eyeing because I knew that they would match. I found them on sale - even better, and of course, it doesn't hurt that my name is Cindy!

I really love how my room has turned out!

I love going to sleep and waking up in what I consider to be a haven!

This is a look from the door as you enter my room. Now, I do have to admit that I have one thing left to do and that is tackle my wall of windows! I have an idea of what I want to do and I am pretty sure that it will involve some plates above the windows in addition to the window treatments!

As far as I am concerned, a girl can never have to many pillows!

And of course, I love my plates!

This is my bedside table. I love my little 'It's a Wonderful Life' sign.

Here is a close up-

This is my dresser. The 2 pictures I just bought this past Wednesday at my favorite store TJ Maxx!!

A close up of the dresser. I just love those beads around the candles!

My entertainment center.

Love the sentiment on the little pillow!
Let's take a look inside.
As you enter my room this is immediately on your left and across from the bed.

Again, a closer look. My mother tells me that I need to simplify and get rid of the 'clutter/stuff' that I have on top of everything. I simply couldn't do it! I love to be surrounded by the things that I love!
Well, that's pretty much it!
I enjoyed sharing my room with you!
