I recently updated the paint and bedding in our Master Bedroom. I chose the light and airy Sienna Paisley from Pottery Barn. The cool colors were definitely what I was looking for in creating a serene and quiet room. I'm kinda all over the board when it comes to colors, I have a hard time choosing just one favorite.
The same holds true when going to Baskin-Robbins, just ask my girlfriend Suzy or my husband Terry. Needless to say, I have many color schemes going on in my home, but our master has stayed consistently in the cool colors.
While I love the bedding, I had a had time finding throw pillows to coordinate with it. I definitely hold to the theory that you can't have too many pillows on your bed, so I had to get creative when it came to pillows for our master bed. When I bought the bedding set, I purchased an extra set of shams that I could take apart and use to make additional pillows.
From the sham material, I made a neck roll pillow and used it as an edge for some monogram pillows I made. I could have very easily taken some fabric to our local monogram shop to get monogrammed (it really isn't very expensive), but then I wouldn't have had anything to do in the evening when I watch t.v. I figured that since I am the heir to my grandma's and my mom's creative DNA, I could surely do my own embroidered monogram pillows. Because the paisley is so filigreed, I chose a rather filigreed monogram as well.
This was a relatively quick project which tied everything together on the bed. I am tempted to try my hand at some blockier monograms, maybe filling them with different stitches. Kate and her roommate are figuring out their dorm decor, so maybe once they have that nailed down, I'll do a pillow for her bed.
