Posting was light last week, but with good reason! I was contacted Monday by a national media outlet looking to include yours truly in an article about Atlanta Interior Designers. I was beyond thrilled to be asked, and it also gave me the push to take some new interior images to include with my article. I really wanted to include the dining room I’m currently finishing for a client but since we’re a few weeks away from completion, the next closest project is my master bedroom. As I shared with you guys before, I have everything I need for my bedroom except my wall art (currently out of stock) and my fabulous Bergére/wingback chair, of which I’m still waiting for the fabric to arrive. Still, I called my up photographer extraordinaire, Christina Wedge, and we scheduled our shoot for Friday. We only took a few shots since a few of the final pieces weren’t in place), but I am ecstatic with the results! Without further adieu, here’s your peek at the place where I do most of my blogging, business planning, reading, and Grey’s Anatomy-watching–step into my bedroom…

**I know the light looks odd, but it’s actually a ceiling fan! The fan didn’t seem to be moving that fast, but clearly it was–you only see a slight whirl of the blades!**

Might I remind you that ALL OF THE FURNITURE PIECES YOU SEE HERE ARE VINTAGE, THRIFTED/CRAIGSLISTED/SECONDHAND AND HAVE BEEN REFINISHED BY YOURS TRULY??? Yup, you read that right–secondhand, thrift stores, someone else’s “junk”, etc. If you haven’t seen the before photos of these pieces, you must to click here to see how everything started. You’ll have to stay tuned for the next Master Bedroom reveal but in the meantime, I’d be delighted if you left me a little comment down below…

**In the fine print I’ll tell you that the only exception to this declaration is the gorgeous Nanette Leather Chair which was on loan to me from my fine friends at Mitchell Gold + Bob Williams Atlanta. (This may sound like a plug, but only because it’s the truth–you won’t find a more service-oriented and all around great group of industry people than the sales & management team @ MGBWAtlanta. They’re hip, they read blogs, and they’re all about design. If you’re not buying your furniture from them, you should be!)**

    Oh yes. This is great. If in fact you come home this evening and your comforter, pillows and lamps are all missing and by chance you happen to find them in one of my clients homes, I will say, I didnt do it and I am not sure who did.

    Just in case…ya know….

    Like the other commenters said, I just love those lamps. I’ve shared the lamp before & afters with at least five people (and the owl lamp before & after)! You’ve inspired me to keep my eyes out for lamps at thrift stores. I have a question about the black lampshades- do they provide enough light? 🙂 Ally @ Fever Thrift

    Dayka, congrats on the fun opportunity. It’s not a bad thing to be pushed like that to finish projects:-) As for your room it looks so fabulous. You know it takes a real talent to create a room that looks like this on a budget. I spy your fabric that we were trying to find more of. Did you ever get your hands on more of it?

  25. P.S. I love this...

    Hi – Can you share the bedding designer/pattern? I have a red upholstered bed and have been looking for new bedding in prints just like the one you have!

    Hey Heidi,

    The bedskirt & Euros were custom-made. The duvet is off the rack (Home Goods/Marshalls), and the polka dot sheets are by Ralph Lauren. Good luck on your bedroom!

    where did you get your blinds from?

  29. Dayka
    October 10, 2012 at 11:16 pm (6 years ago)

    Thanks so much.

    The blinds came from Target years ago, back when they used to sell bamboo shades. For a similar product, try or Home Depot.
