Working on the master bedroom sitting room

We have been working on this area of our Master for a while now.
We always wanted to have our own sitting area in our bedroom, but, the truth is, we never had a room large enough to be able to make it happen.

We already had in mind what we wanted and slowly, we are putting it together. 
The painting we bought a couple of months ago was my inspiration.
After that, we purchased the seagrass rugs.
We looked around everywhere in our area for the chairs we wanted, but with no luck.
The ones we found were either the wrong style or color, or just very overpriced,
 so, we finally had to give in and we bought them online last month.
I love these chairs!

This was our first time ever buying furniture from an internet site, so we were a little nervous, but everything worked out just fine and the chairs arrived in 
only four days and they were in perfect condition. 

Shipping was free and I also was able to use a
coupon code, so we ended up saving an extra $70.
Can't beat that!

We are still looking for the perfect table to use in between both chairs and we are also on the lookout for the right size ottoman to use as a coffee table.
So far, the ones we found are either too small or too big.

Just today, I run across Marty's new post at 
on how to make your own ottoman, so I think she just gave us the perfect solution.
Thank you Marty for sharing your knowledge on how to do this!

Here is what the room looks like so far

What we liked most about these chairs was the linen material, the tufted back
and the bronze nailheads. We also liked the fact that the legs are espresso color 
which is the same as our bedroom furniture.

The painting, if you remember, also has a similar design around it

I found these pretty flower pillows at Kirklands a couple of weeks ago with the perfect colors for that room and I am also making some solid ones from the left over material from when I made my drapes. I still have one more pillow to make.

For now, I am just using a small round table I had, until we can find the one we want.
I just decorated it with a bronze lamp I had, some books, flowers 
and a couple of small old pictures.

Here is the view from the other side of the room
We also want to add a small bookcase under the painting.

And, since I don't seem to be able to stop messing with the house for even five minutes, 
I have to share with you guys the project I hope to start doing this week.

Do you all see those french doors in the room?

Do you know where they lead to?

Yes, our own private balcony. It can only be accessed from the Master bedroom

Our very empty balcony, but not for long!
I found this video over the weekend that our builder made of one of their model
homes which is the same as ours. Look at those curtains!!!
Sorry, the picture is awful! But you get the idea.
Can you guess what my next project is going to be?
I want to carry the same colors from the bedroom out into our outdoor space.
Oh, I have big plans for this porch!

What do you guys think?
I told you this was the longest master suite renovation in history! LOL
Stay tuned! :)
I hope you guys have a grand week!
Happy Monday!

  17. Oh Maria, you are doing a great job on your redecorating. I remember the picture. I love the new chairs and how you have made this space look so inviting. You mentioned wanting another table, but I like the soft look of the tablecloth, so keeping what you have would be nice too. I bet your balcony will be just as pretty when you are able to decorate it. Seems like you are having a lot of fun planning and playing with all your pretty things. Thanks for sharing your home at Your Cozy Home Party each week.

  29. What a pretty sitting area! I just found you via French Country Cottage link party, and I am your newest linky follower!
    Can't wait to see how your outdoor curtains come out!
    Have a great weekend!

  30. What a beautiful bedroom you are creating, I love the use of the soft colors. I can't wait to see the ottoman you create for the space and what you do with the balcony! I also made an ottoman for my livingroom last year and covered it with soft burlap material, I was surprisingly happy with the outcome, you should come check it out on my blog when you get a chance. Have a wonderful weekend!

  31. Oh, what a beautiful room this is... I love all the soft colors! The picture is absolutely gorgeous and makes a wonderful statement in the room, as well as the beautiful drapery with the fringed valances. Beautiful chairs and I love how it goes perfectly with the rest of the decor! How nice to have a private balcony:)Thanks for such an inspiring bedroom and for your sweet note:)Have a great week!~Poppy

  32. Absolutely gorgeous! Wow it is a big room. I would love to have a sitting area in our bedroom. Love it! Hugs and thank you for joining in the fun at the Thursday Favorite Things hop xo

  33. So pretty! I love all the soft, muted color choices you have made. They blend so well together and make your room so serene. I also love the picture of the bird and cage. Very sweet.

  34. I so love your room.

    You asked about the window wash stuff. Yes, I just pour some of the car window fluid in a spray bottle and then spray away and wipe dry with a microfiber cloth. The screens were cleaned with some car washing stuff that I mixed up in a bucket and then used a big sponge to wash the screens with. The stuff that scrubs the grime off of your car seemed to scrub the grime off the screens also. Then I just hosed them off and let them dry. My windows and screens look like new. Hugs, Marty

  35. Maria you always do such a lovely job and this is no exception; it's just beautiful! I love the chairs and the seagrass rugs. Thanks for the inspiration :)

  36. It always pays off to take your time when decorating, you have done a wonderful job! I love everything about your room, those chairs are to die for, and I love anything that has to do with birds, so the picture is a keeper. Wow, you have a lovely porch as well, I'm sure it will turn out just as great!

  37. Beautiful! The colors are so soothing and I love the rug. Thank you for joining me at Home Sweet Home!
