The Mr. and Mrs.

I loved our bedroom at our house in Birmingham.  The soothing blue walls and white bedding  created a calming atmosphere to help us unwind at the end of the day.

Michael Luke and I are enjoying the challenge of creating the same peaceful feeling in our new bedroom.  An apartment is temporary and for the most part people don’t paint the walls and whatever flooring is installed is what you are stuck with.  That leaves us with the coveted beige walls and cut pile carpets.

It’s not necessarily a bad thing though.  It leaves plenty of opportunity to incorporate color in other ways.  Once we finally made it past all the boxes and unpacking… that takes forever, we began planning ways to incorporate color and personality into our bedroom.

To start with we realized that our white bedding just wasn’t going to work here.  It didn’t necessarily look bad but it certainly didn’t do anything to enhance the place.  Plus,it gave Michael Luke an excuse to purchase a new comforter because ours was a weighty down comforter that gets pretty warm during the Summer months.

So, while we were in Birmingham last month visiting with friends we stopped at World Market.  I love the patterns and colors that can be found there.  We went initially to look at draperies but got side tracked when we saw this comforter and pillow shams on display.

Mr. is my pet name for Michael Luke. So, we felt like they were perfect.

The blue comforter also reminded us of the color of our bedroom walls in Birmingham.

Next up in our master bedroom makeover is draperies and then the addition of more artwork.  One thing is for sure though.  It’s nice to finally have a relaxing and calming bedroom to unwind in at the end of the day.
