Favorites In The Master Bedroom...Shabbyfufu

Hello and I hope that you have been enjoying the Holidays! I've been taking a break from blogging and business in general with family and friend activities, and today I'm popping in to share some images of my favorite room...
A room filled with lots of light and it's gone through several transformations...

 Our master bedroom is a now quiet and much needed sanctuary...
It's a chameleon of sorts, as is the rest of my home. Always basically the same, not much new...just moved around and restyled. Often when I'm working on a photo shoot it can look a bit "over the top", but it doesn't stay that way for long...
This room was part of an addition to our home about 15 years ago. Originally the room had tile floors, which is actually fairly common here in the tropical part of Florida as it helps keep the room cool...
I was never a fan of the tile personally, but in this case I did not win out in the decision with a husband who is a builder...
A large Aubusson rug did the trick of covering up the tile, but now I'm happy to report that the flooring is a light colored WOOD:-))...
The light in this room is quite delicious!
It's a great room to photograph the dogs...shown here are 2 out of 3 of our fur babies...
The shot above is from the blog last year at holiday time, shortly before we started renovation to finally change out that tile for wood... 
With the walls in our home all painted white, it enables me to seamlessly style and change out rooms to suit the season..
In my home styling I always use flowers. Sometimes from my gardens, sometimes good quality silks and more often than not... from the florist...
I'm unabashedly romantic (but have a husband:-))...so just these few touches that are often moved around and restyled are just fine by him in every room. He knows that it won't stay that way for very long!
On the blog I often share that one can definitely achieve a high end elegant look on a budget. This chair came from an estate sale years back and was very inexpensive, as was the small French table that I painted about 10 years ago with milk paint...
I'm huge on freebies and not at all ashamed to admit to that! The pink linen cabinet was given to me by a good friend...

The florals are local bougainvillea that I cut from an abandonded lot. I think that they add so much to the room and for no cost, as well as doing the neighborhood a favor by trimming that lot. The florals in the bucket...a contractor's bucket spray painted grey of the day...
I shop my own home quite often and love to accent the bedroom with various linens. Benches are a favorite flea market treasure when I can find them, and pieces like the above can be used both in the home or outside...
The mantel above was free to me from a client's home who no longer wanted the piece. It now lives in our bedroom and get's a weekly styling to bring color and texture to the room....
One thing that you can count on in the master bedroom in our home (and every room for that matter:-)), is that it will always look different by adding florals, linens and shopping my own home and closets and adding color and texture...

I'll be back after a long weekend at the beach place for the rest of my vacation, and until then I'm wishing you and yours a Happy New Year filled with all that you wish for in life. Thanks for being here...
xoxo,
