Our Master Bedroom - The Billionth Reveal.

Ohhhhh, our master bedroom.  It's the room in our home that has never felt quite right to me.  I've painted (and re-painted...and re-painted again), stenciled, swapped out furniture (twice), rearranged the placement multiple times and made poor hubby mount and un-mount our TV too many times.  Every time I thought I'd be "done", I just felt unsettled.  And that is NOT a feeling you want for the space you are supposed to unwind in every night.  Finally, after "refreshing" it for probably almost two years, I'm finally feeling content.  And before the feeling fades, I figured I should get some pictures posted to show the "reveal".

There are a few things that help "make" the room for me...

1) My gloss-on-matte stenciled wall now competes with our hallway for my favorite stencil project, ever.  I love the statement made by the subtle pattern.  You can purchase the stencil from Sarah's Etsy shop here.

2) My fabulous pillows!!  If you are searching for a great pillow source, you have to check out Priscilla's Etsy shop, MotifPillows.  She has the best stuff!  Her radiant orchid and animal print covers worked so well with the older aqua pillows I found at Target.

3) The stunning Lamps Plus sconces that now flank our bed.  I'm no stranger to Lamps Plus.  I purchased a few items for our home from their website when we completed the major reno of our first level.  In fact, one of the most common email questions I receive is where to find our master bedroom ceiling fan/light combo.  (And in case you are now wondering, it's the 52" Casa Optima White Flower Ceiling Fan.)

Lamps Plus has the most amazing selection to look through.  I can (and have) spent hours browsing their options.  And the minute I laid eyes on our brass beauties, I knew they would be perfect for our room.  They have me smitten!

4) Our Rugs USA Windsor Overdyed Grove Rug in violet.  I already knew I had a soft spot for this rug.  Quite some time ago, I purchased the turquoise version to for our living room.  It created the perfect pop of color in that space, and when I realized I wanted to make a similar statement in our bedroom, I knew where to look.  I headed back to the RugsUSA site to find a pinky-purple version of the overdyed rug.  It's like it was made for our space!

Now, fingers crossed this will be the last "reveal" for quite some time. ;)

Jord Wood Watch.

My insta-friends, and lovely readers who caught this post, know I'm a sucker for accessories.  They are the finishing touches that really make an outfit complete.  Lucky me, I'll be making quite the statement this fall with the addition of my new wood watch.  It's my latest obsession.

A wooden watch...say whaaaat?!?!  I know.  It's not a traditional watch you would see every day, but that's what makes it so great.  The wood grain of the watch makes me feel like I'm wearing a piece of art.  It's lightweight and comfortable on the wrist.

It’s a versatile piece.  You can dress it up or down.  It pairs just as well with a cardigan and skirt as it does with a t-shirt and jeans.

This watch is from the unisex Fieldcrest series and I have to admit I've caught hubby eyeing it up a few times. Too bad for him, it was sized for my wrist before it was sent to me.  How cool is that?! Not only do they offer free shipping, worldwide, but for an additional $10, they will size your watch for you. That means your watch will be ready to wear when it arrives on your doorstep.  No trip to your local jeweler will be necessary. :)

So who is the genius company behind all this beauty?!  That would be Jord...a handmade, luxury wood watch company.  Their men’s and women’s series are equally amazing, but I’m partial to the unisex selections.  Which of their watches is your favorite?  I dare you to browse their site and not fall in love.

Thank you for my new favorite watch, Jord!!  Want to see how others wear their watches?  Check out their hashtag wall.
