Master Bedroom Progress

We’ve actually made progress in many of the room in the house and I now can start thinking more about the design process.  I mentioned before that I really wanted a purple bedroom and was in the process of purchasing this purple grasscloth to get the room started.

But two things happened before I was able to make the purchase.  First, this amazing headboard was on a crazy sale right after Christmas.

I’ve been eyeing this bed on Pinterest and Houzz for months and when it was almost 55% off, I couldn’t pass it up.  With such an amazing headboard (it’s 7′ high!!), I decided that maybe I should simply paint the room a deep color and let the bed shine.  So I needed to rethink the design.

And second, I became obsessed with two color schemes for a room in our house.  When I finally made the choice (with the help of friends and hubby) about which color scheme would win out, I was devastated not to be able to use the other scheme in the house.  So I’ve now decided to scrap the purple and go with the losing color scheme – navy and coral/pink/red!

I may tone down the use of pink and coral since the bed is feminine and will likely go a little darker on the navy blue rendering it almost black.  But I’m so excited about this change and hope to put together a board and fabrics to show you!  Plus, I’m so damn excited about the headboard that I just can’t wait to see it in a few weeks.

Fabulous Tots: Kelsey’s First Purple Birthday Party

As I mentioned last week, I spent the weekend in San Francisco attending the first birthday party of adorable Kelsey.

Kelsey and mom/party planner, Danielle

Her mom (and helpers) are known for throwing fabulous parties and this one was no exception even considering it was for a 1-year-old.  The party decor (and baby) were decked out in various shades of purple.  It was pretty and perfect for her.

Delicious dessert table with the baby cake, macaroons, cupcakes, cake pops…the kids were going crazy for the sugar!

More purple decor – decorated high chair; monogrammed water bottles, customized hats!

Delicious food spread.

Great kid station. Using ice-cube trays to hold individual servings of small bite size pieces for babies. What a great idea!

All in all, I thought this was a great party and the kids (while not great barometers when they are high on sugar) seemed to enjoy it as well.  I wanted to share the pictures because I thought it was just too cute and there may be some ideas that you can steal for your next party (plus I love all the purple!).  Hoped you enjoyed the peek inside!
