Dreaming of the "Spa-Like" room at home

.....So this is the inspiration for our "new" master suite. We are taking over the WHOLE downstairs! Yep, that's right. The living room, the little bedroom, the bathroom & the closet under the stairs. We're even talking about moving the washer and dryer upstairs into the pantry room and putting in a stackable set in the "now" laundry room aka walk-in closet.

This is the room we stayed in at the Anchor Pier in Newport, OR. It's called OCEAN'S EDGE. Phillip and I thought it was very relaxing and the colors were so soothing.

Since our NEW master bedroom will be in the daylight basement, we thought this color scheme would lighten it up a bit and be dreamy. Nothing like waking up in the morning feeling refreshed and happy.

The only thing that will be different is the furniture. Ours is "lightly" distressed white. Of course, it's not the matching bedroom set you'd buy at the local furniture store. It's an ecletic mix of collected pieces that have been mated through paint, light distressing and a good waxxing (topcoat).

All I need to find now (oh what fun that will be...hee hee!) is an awesome headboard. Funny thing is we've had several beds in our time together, but haven't had one during the last 8 or so years. Guess I wasn't looking hard enough. But, now that we have a plan, it's on baby!!!

We even bought nightstand lamps years ago with a nice, clean nautical theme. Go figure. Guess it's Karma or something. They are brushed aluminum with glass bases. I just need to find some really cool lampshades. The original ones have been long discarded (yes, believe it or not, I threw them away!). They currently sport a sand colored faux-suede shade. Not the best match, but they work.

I can't wait to re-paint the bathroom too. It currently has dark stained beadboard - that will soon become white. The tub/shower enclosure will become a much needed storage/linen closet complete with a magazine rack next to the potty. Can you imagine it? Towels stored nicely folded in one cubby and the other toiletries stored in another AND a library? NICE!!!

Next, we'll get to add a soaking tub and shower in the existing little bedroom and a 2nd sink (the original bathroom will keep it's white pedestal sink and potty). So no need for that dual sink layout I've always Jones'd for.

I can't wait, I can't wait! BUT there are some things that need to get completed first before we can take over A.J.'s little room!!! BUT the wheels are in motion and we meet with Frank the Contractor on Sunday!!!! YEAH!!!!

I love progress. AND when my daydreams are close to coming true....
