The story behind my master bedroom

Months ago, when I outlined the "plan" for my master bedroom redo (or simply the "do" since there wasn't much there to redo) I had a grand plan: light, peaceful, soft -- a comfortable grown-up retreat with elegant and contemporary touches.

I had never considered solid white bedding before, but I suddenly found myself drawn to it -- I wanted my bedroom to be a restful place where I could temporarily escape the sweet, wonderful chaos outside its door. In short, I was looking for white space. I wanted luxury, balance, breath.

This was a pretty tall order, considering that I had (1) no real idea what I was talking about and (2) no training in design.

Oh well, I'm always up for a challenge!

This is what I started with when we bought our house last year:

(Ahem. I told you I hated laundry. Worst part of laundry besides folding fitted sheets? SOCKS.)

(Heck yeah that's my cowboy hat. It's for braided pigtails and trips to the farmers' market and it's faaaabulous.)

Oh, the shame. Those "before" pictures are disastrous. In my defense, the bed was only in the corner for a couple weeks. Not a fan.

Here's a sneak peak at the current state, which is still very much in progress:

I'm really excited to make some more headway in there, and tomorrow's post will be about a roadblock I've hit and need your help with. So I'm going to need y'all to call in your bloggy friends for reinforcement, because I don't have enough of my own yet -- newborn baby blogger here, people.

'Til then, I'm going to go hide my head in my half-complete white space bedroom while I die of embarrassment. (Did I really just post those before pictures? Ew.)
