“While adding the finishing touches to a painting might appear insignificant,
it is much harder to do than one might suppose.”
~ Claude Monet
Substitute ‘room’ for ‘painting’ and this pretty much sums up how I feel about our bedroom at Snowberry.
A couple other spaces as well, but we won’t get into that.
We moved into Snowberry a little over two years ago.
After a year-long, down-to-the-studs renovation.
So what’s taken me so long to share the main bedroom?
The shameful answer is … it’s not finished.
I haven’t put the finishing touches on the room.
The walls are bare.
The nightstands unadorned.

What’s a girl to do but admit her shortcomings.
And share the room as is.
But before we get to that.
Let’s look at the main bedroom evolution.
Here’s how the room looked in the real estate listing photos.
The room isn’t large, but it’s not small either.
It’s a decent size at 16 x 15.
The house was staged for sale and I’m not sure why the bed was place on this short wall.
The pass through to the bathroom was quite wide but had no doors.
Not visible in these photos is a reach in closet on the wall opposite the windows.
The ‘good’ pictures in this post are taken by Monica Vargas Photography.
This is the room just before demolition.
You can see the reach in closet.
It was removed to create a larger closet in the guest room next door.
Ah the joys of demo day.
Ahem … demo month.
Seeing a demo’d room is an eye opener.
You’d think the room would appear larger.
But the opposite is true.
My niece, Shelby, looks unimpressed.
She liked our last two houses.
I chose light, neutral paint colors for the bedroom.
And relaxed Roman shades for the windows, trimmed with fun pompoms.
Mary Ann from Classic Casual Home ordered the drapery fabrics at the
San Francisco Design Center.
When I showed her the fabric I wanted she said ‘wow, you have great taste.’
What she meant was:
‘You have a knack for choosing the most expensive fabric available.’
I appreciate her because she’s always trying to save me money.
She’s also great and finding just the right thing.
I had the idea for pom pom trim and she found this amazing
Samuel & Sons trim in the perfect color!
Mary Ann also oversaw the fabrication and installation of the shades.
And bolster pillow for the bed.
Here’s the bedroom right after the new furniture was delivered.
We sold our Fidalgo Island home furnished and had to start from (almost) scratch.
The rug is from Restoration Hardware.
It’s their Rafina Handwoven Rug in Natural.
It’s the worst rug ever.
When it was delivered we couldn’t figure out which side was the right side.
Both were equally bad.
To add insult to injury it looked dirty.
Needless to say it was replaced.
A painful and expensive mistake.
The TV armoire is from Ethan Allen.
Yes, we are TV-in-the-bedroom people.
But I like the option to hide the TV.
And I appreciate all the lower drawer storage.
And finally, the duvet and shams are on the bed.
Snowberry’s main (unstyled) bedroom.
Details and sources listed at the end of the post.
So there you have it.
Snowberry’s finished but unstyled main bedroom.
You can see the replacement rug in this more recent photo taken by moi.
The new rug is a Prestige Mills wool carpet.
Habsburg collection in Mista.
We had it custom cut and surged at Carpet One.
I like big rugs and I cannot lie.
The dimensions are 12 x 15.
As you can see the walls are bare.
I’d like to add a wide, full-length mirror to the right of the armoire.
And writing this post has motivated me to start searching for wall art inspiration.
Finishing the room is on my list of things to accomplish this year.
If you have any ideas, I’d love to hear them!
