Bedroom blues

A couple months ago, I posted about my plan for our master bedroom.

It's still not complete but I got one step closer this weekend when I put together this corner of the room:

The wing back chair and ottoman were one of the first furniture purchases my parents made more than 20 years ago. It was originally a light blue color and was later re-covered in a pastel stripe. 

They recently re-did their living room where the chair was residing and offered it up to me.
I was happy to take it off their hands and had it re-covered in an off-white Ralph Lauren fabric.

I got the throw on the back of the chair on sale from Crate & Barrel.
It can be found here and also comes in red, which is really cute for the holidays.

This map of New England that is hanging by the chair was a Home Goods find.

The outer part of the frame was black so I painted it with Annie Sloan Chalk Paint.
Here's a side by side close-up of the before & after:


Next up for this bedroom is to switch out the white roll-up shades for these bamboo shades I just ordered, which are on sale for a really reasonable price (enter coupon code UNDERTRE for an extra 15% off).

Have a great week!

  1. Wow, that chair is beautiful! Such a classic and clean lines. Would you mind sharing the link to the RL fabric you used??

    1. Thanks so much! I'm lucky my parents didn't mind handing it over to us :) I wish I could tell you the name of the fabric but I don't have the swatch and the fabric was purchased out of state at a fabric store sorry!


I appreciate all of your comments! If you have a question, I'll get back to you as soon as possible.
