At Home: Gray Master Bedroom

I am typically a fan of warm colors...reds, tans, yellows and greens.  But I wanted a different feel for my master bedroom.  I wanted it to be serene, calm and almost monochromatic with a few bold pops.

I went with gray...dark gray walls, grey and white on the bed and a repeat of that on the carpet and curtains.  I really is my retreat.  A favorite place to catch an afternoon nap.

This room once had a floral wall paper with tan trim.  Pretty with my mother-in-law's stuff, but not my taste.  Steve took the wallpaper down and the rest was my doing.  The view from the master bathroom.

I tried to not have a TV in the bedroom.  The problem is my husband wouldn't be there either...LOL!  I made it a part of a grouping, place art on the empty space on the wall along with some frames on the dresser.
The view from the door into the room.  I love usual groupings so hung the art to the left and then found a glass star at Jo'ann's. 

This is from my side of the bed.  The master bathroom is right through that door on the left.  To see how it coordinates with our bedroom, go here. 

Keeping it real...we have our dog's very large bed on my side of the room.  You can't see it when you walk in, but it is there!
I went with pops of teal and yellow with my accessories.  The tray holds some of my jewelry and gives me a place to rest my coffee.  Our bedside lamps are also teal.  Yellow can be found in our curtains, on some throw pillows and on the cute bench from Target.  I love the teal, yellow and gray combination.

I found this old wood pallet sign from Home was a steal and adds such nice texture to the room.
I wanted a light source to the right side of my dresser.  I went with this small silver lamp, but when I got it home, it seemed tiny in the space.  I liked the width of it and didn't want a huge lamp in that spot.  So, I solved my problem by utilizing those wooden boxes.  I simply stacked two and put the lamp on top.  It almost looks as though it came that way.
The little beauty is from Target, the Threshold collection.  Yellow trellis pattern on legs?  I could not resist.

I took tons of inspiration from Pinterest and blogs such as Young House Love when creating this space.  I may replace the gray area rug with a bold teal one some day.  For now, I am happily enjoy this retreat.
