Bedroom Update!

colette

That’s right….COLETTE. If you’ve been reading this blog long enough you know that I have been lusting after the Crate & Barrel Colette bed for years.  I have had dreams about her, gone to the store to stare at/ lie on her and freak out every time she’s featured in a movie (which is ridiculously often).  And thanks to the amazing folks at American Express, she is now MINE!  Using a big chunk of the points I was awarded I ordered up Crate & Barrel gift cards (so easy- they came the next day) and ran down the the Boylston Street store.  Now, as my yoga teachings have reminded me, I am not supposed to be attached to material things.  But I have to say, the moment I got to say “I’d like to order the Colette bed”, I was freaking my freak. I joked with my girlfriend that I was going to send out birth announcements about it I was so excited, hence the above. :) And here she is…

Baxter and Oliver clearly love to model for you guys.

We also used some points to get West Elm gift cards for this great shag rug (which is like having a new pet with the amount it sheds), the Pottery Barn window treatments which we installed last night and these GORGEOUS black embroidered Greek key shams from William Sonoma Home. Seriously, if you guys have Am Ex Reward Points, think about using them for home stuff! I never would have before this (always just flights) but now I know how easy it is!

Oh the detail….LOOOOOOOVE. Especially against the black wall!

The window treatments look so serene and truly change to mood of the room. My awesome window treatment lady Paula from PMK Designs was kind enough to donate her time sew on the hardware and help us install them.

I used a small amount of points to order this fabulous new glass and chrome hardware for the bedside tables from Restoration Hardware.  I am pondering painting these tables glossy white with deep grey accents on the drawers, but as is they do go nicely with the headboard as well.  What do you think? Like I’ve said before, I can decorate other people’s spaces, but not my own!

The last decision is about bedding and the bench fabric (which I’m changing).  And then the room will be done!  Tune in next week for the finale and a great giveaway courtesy of American Express!

Not part of my Am Ex sponsored makeover are the sheers we installed in our main living space. They are ethereal and subtle yet dramatic in person. Love them!
