Show Us Your Life- Master Bedrooms

This week Kelly is doing Master bedroom tours. Come on in!

[Note: Most of this is from an old post, but there are a few changes!]

This is the view from the door. I love our new of my mom's very talented friends made them for us and I think they are very elegant the way they fall.

We bought this armoire at an antique was a steal! There is a tv in it and it holds most of Peyton's clothes (some are in the closet in his study), as I took over the ENTIRE master closet...oops! I love the color of the pottery on top. The swirly one (UPDATE: Peyton broke my platter pushing his clothes around too hard and I have yet to find a replacement.  UGH!) and the vase beside it are both Gail Pittman pieces (so sad that era is over). The one with the ferns in it is actually a wastebasket (aka trash can) fom Bed, Bath and Beyond. And I thought the little colorful boxes added a nice touch.

This is AP's bassinet. A friend of my mom's loaned it to us and it is beautiful! It's usually by our bed. Update: We gave the bassinet back and now her Pack N Play is in that spot.  She doesn't sleep OR play in it, but it has a changing table and we don't have one in the nursery, so that's it's primary function!

Our dresser used to belong to my grandmother, "Bump", as did much of the furniture in our house.

A closer view of the dresser. The canvas was my birthday present from my best friend, Logan. The tray, bird and thing in the back holding Peyton's necklaces are all Gail Pittman as well. The tray also has a picture of me and Daddy (it has been in my bedroom in that frame since I was a little girl) and a couple of frog trinket boxes (I really love frog stuff!!).

This lamp was also Bump's....I like it because it seems very vintage. The little powder box is another Gail Pittman piece (I kind of bought out the outlet when I heard it was closing) and the the box in the middle was a Christmas present to Peyton from my parents.

I framed these pictures that Peyton's brother Michal took when Ann Peyton was about a week old. I know they are kind of hard to see because they are black and white. I love the uniqueness of these....Michal really has a gift!

Another thing from Bumps....I like the retro feel of this loveseat. The big bin holds magazines and the small one holds other miscellaneous stuff.

This is Peyton's night stand....sorry for the not great picture quality. The picture is of me when I was in kindergarten--I have a very concerned, concentrated look on my face and he loved the picture because I have that same look so often now.

I would love so much to have a king size bed, but it just isn't practical in this room. And apparently a queen is only six inches wider (my mom measured the mattresses at Batte), so here is our double bed. Peyton is an amazing husband, but a less amazing bedmate; think diagonal sleeper, haha!

UPDATE: We actually did end up getting a queen size mattress when friends of ours upsized to a king.  I still really want a king one day, but for now, I love our bed!  We were able to use the same headboard (it was actually the one in the room where I grew up), but we did get new bedding.  I prefer it SO much to our old bedding!
That's our kitty, The General, making himself right at home!

This is my vanity; it belonged to Peyton's parents.

Here is a closer look at the vanity. On the left is a funky little lipstick/mascara holding girl of my moms, my favorite Channel perfume that Peyton got me as a "push present", some cotton balls in a little coconut bowl from our honeymoon and some q-tips. On the right is my clock, lamp, a little dish, and of course the baby monitor (it just happens to match; I got it because it has an alarm that goes off if she quits breathing). And in the middle is all my makeup/nail polish/lotion/other beauty junk.

Update: I added a sampler above my vanity.  I love samplers and did a whole post on them on my other blog, {Back to the Days} Of Apron Strings and Lovely Things.

Here's a closer look:
Love. Faith. Hope. Charity. {Happiness Tree} Work. Play. Laughter. Happiness is catching. We get it from one another.

My mom fixed this little chair up to go with the dressing table. The chair "skirt" was an actual skirt! She rigged it up with the bow using rubber bands, very DIY, but she's like that (I want to be!).

I LOVE frames like this! Mickey and AP on top; Peyton and I at a Crawfish Boil celebrating our engagement.

We found this dresser that matches the vanity at an antique store....what a find! The basket beside it holds more magazines. The picture above is of Fondren, a really neat area in Jackson, and was painted by Peyton's sister's husband, Daniel.

Here's a closer look at the dresser. Another piece of pottery and a beautiful McCarty bunny from my sweet friend, Sue. The pictures are (L to R): Logan and I at my bridesmaid luncheon (sorry for the glare), Momma before I was born, and me and Peyton at his sister's wedding.

Finally, the moment you've all been waiting for....the closet!

Summer clothes....I know, I have a problem; I really haven't gotten rid of anything since 9th grade (okay, not much)!

This piece was also Peyton's parents and matches the vanity and dresser. I put it in the closet for extra storage for bras and panties and tank tops and such.

More storage

I love this shoe rack from Target!

As you can see, I love aqua and I like a mix of classic "pretty" peices, fun retro style things, and a little vintage shabby chic decor.  Thanks for stopping by!
