Master Overhaul…

I am soooooo excited to have actually started my master bedroom makeover.  I will mull it over, hem-haw and procrastinate until the project is nothing but a distant memory.

The first piece of the puzzle (always the toughest to put in place) came from total impromptu shopping trip to the new Tuesday Morning in Mt. Pleasant at Belle Station Shopping Centre.  It is AWESOME…clean, fully stocked with every home good you can imagine-all at an affordable price.  I came across this steel grey and ecru rug (100% wool 5×8) for $60 bucks and knew I struck gold.  Step #1…done~!

Step #2…After hearing about the new House Account app from a friend (more on this later…its an amazing shopping resource) I found these mid-century bedside tables on the Charleston Revisions page.

Charleston Revisions is my new go-to for furniture and home accessories in the Lowcountry.  I can’t wait to share more of my Revisions acquisitions as I move further into this project.  What will step #3 entail…we shall see!

Design Darlings…

If you are anything like me decorating the house is a constant work in progress. It is never done. I enjoy a room for about a week before I start to feel the itch to “update”.  I find that if I incorporate new little touches in lieu of replacing big pieces the effect is satisfying and the spend is minimal.  Rattan HurricanesSerena & Lily Two Toned Rattan Lanterns
