The X Bench in the Master Bedroom!!

I gave you all a little sneak peek of my Son and DIL’s master bedroom in my post on the X bench at such a great value here. If you need or want an X Bench I highly recommend you read my previous post.

We are not done with the complete design, but we are well on our way. The only thing left to do is to order the furniture. She has decided on the furniture but is still going back and forth about the color. It comes in cream or black. She is leaning toward the black since she likes a sharp look. I think I would  go with cream since I tend to like a softer look. Let me know what you think would look good with all the existing pieces!! Black or Cream?

I know you all loved the drapery panels. Surprise! We did not put them on the windows, instead we put them on the walls outside the alcove that the bed sits in. I would like to see the two small side walls painted the dark grey also. I think it will make the whole back wall look more cohesive, but the final choice always goes to the homeowner.

The drapery panels are a thin, soft dark grey velvet with a large over- scaled damask print in a very light soft taupe. They were ordered from Anthropologie. I love that store. We knew we wanted to do a grey in our color scheme and once we found the drapes the whole design started to unfold.

The headboard was actually purchased awhile ago from Horchow. It is two separate mirrors hinged together and hung as a headboard.

The bedding is from none other than Target by Fieldcrest. I love this bedding it is so sharp and classic with the dark grey stitching. She chose to do dark grey sheets to accent the grey.
This is a lampshade also from Anthropologie. I died when I found this!! We had to have it even though at the time we did not have a lamp. I had a vision of a chrome or silver metal floor lamp to go with the chrome on the X bench that I had in mind for the foot of the bed. I told my DIL we would both look for a slim lined metal floor lamp. She found it first and I think it looks great!!

I found the perfect chair to sit in the corner on line at Tarjay. The colors were perfect and it worked so well with the overall design and was extremely budget friendly.
The cute lumbar pillow was found by my DIL. Isn’t is perfect? The chair actually comes with its own matching lumbar pillow, but she likes this one better.

Once the furniture arrives the finishing touches will be a chandelier in the middle of the room. I like this one from overstock.

I love the clean lines of the chrome with the elegance of the drop crystals which will tie in with the mirrored headboard, the elegant side drapes and the crystal lamps that we purchased for the nightstands.

This is the lamp base with the existing shade. I think we might change the lamp shade out to a white drum shade for a more sleek look against the elegant side drapery panels.

There you have it!!! Not quite finished, but well on our way!!
