Master Suite Before and Now

A reader asked me to stop showing  
"after" photos before "before" photos
 as it ruins the surprise.   
So, this time I am starting with all the BEFORE photos.
But I wrote to her that the reason 
I sometimes show one after photo first, 
is that the first photo I show often displays 
on other blogs sidebars.

If it's not an interesting photo, viewers might
not click over to see more.

Please give me your opinion?  
 Linda told her husband that all she wanted for
Mother's Day, their anniversary, her birthday
and Christmas was a 
restful, elegant and fresh master retreat.
That sweet husband told her to call me.

Some of the things on the counter top were mine....like the papers, cup and little pouch.
Linda bought the painting below as it reminded 
her of happy times in her 
grandmother's rose garden.  
They live in Riverside, California, 
where citrus and roses scent the air.

Linda is soft spoken and graceful.
She's also a great cook and
the kind of person who enriches your life.

Isn't this embroidered linen lovely?
The brick was white washed  to tone down the red.

The walls are painted Benjamin Moore Vapor Trails.

The chairs were reupholstered in Schumacher linen 
and the graphic lumbar pillows are by Thibaut.
The new grass shades are from Smith and Noble in Fiji Ivory.

The Belgium Linen and Greek Key bed skirt was 
fabricated by WoodyLiana.  The crystal lamps 
are from Restoration Hardware.
The nightstands I recommended were from Horchow but Linda found them for an even better price at her local furniture store. 
They have a feature where if you tap the band running along side the back, 
it dims or turns off the lamp. 

This is Linda's side of the bathroom now with her own vanity.
The cabinets are painted Benjamin Moore Fieldstone and the countertops are Carrara marble. Linda took the leftover Thibaut fabric and covered the stool herself.

Remember it before?

Here is her husband's side with more elbow room created by extending the counter.  The sconces are in polished nickel from Circa Lighting, the well-priced mirrors are from Wisteria.  The knobs are from Restoration Hardware.

The tub is from Restoration Hardware 
and so is the chandelier.

Linda's husband is happy about the outcome...
sitting with his feet up in the refurbished wing chair
 he remarked "my life is good."  
I think so too!

This is their pool bath down the hall.
Linda designed this herself.  The cool hammered sink 
is from Overstock. com!
