A Dreamy Master Bedroom, By Melanie Turner

On Sunday, I blogged about my vision for our master bedroom, along with an update on our home renovation...  As you know, I am creating a white and airy Hollywood Regency-inspired sanctuary, with touches of beige, champagne, and gold. Well, I just about flipped when Holly from Things That Inspire posted this heavenly master bedroom, designed by Melanie Turner for the 2013 Atlanta Symphony Show House. I think that Melanie must have read my mind, as this is EXACTLY the look I am going for! I am positively smitten...

Oooh, those curtains! The exquisite Chinoiserie curtains are made from Mary McDonald’s new fabric line for Schumacher, in blush conch. They are just too fabulous!!
I am positively obsessed with Mary McDonald, and I have been drooling over this new fabric, Chinois Palais, ever since it was released. While swoon-worthy drapes in this decadent fabric are unfortunately out of our budget, wouldn't it be lovely to mount two panels and flank them on either side of the bed? I was just thinking our bedroom needs a touch of Chinoiserie!

The brass knobs on the nightstand and dresser remind me of the knobs on my Craigslist score for our master...
The settee is covered in Vanderbilt Velvet, also by Mary McDonald for Schumacher. The drawings are by Todd Murphy.
Thank you, Holly, for sharing this amazing bedroom, and also for letting me share your pictures! To learn more about this room and the Atlanta Symphony Show House, please visit Things That Inspire. 


  1. So perfect! I finally decided to let go of some of the things I was trying to work around in my bedroom and now I'm starting from scratch. White, light and dreamy is what I'm going for too! Can't wait to see what you do! P.S. I would give anything for those Mary McDonald panels!

  2. Ok, I agree with you about those drapes. I love everything about them. That room is pure lux. It would be a joy to have a bedroom like that! Could you imagine the closet???

  3. This bedroom is about 10x prettier in real life - it was so hard to photograph because of the abundant natural light streaming through the windows, and the relatively small size of the room.

    If this were a bedroom for real life, those curtains would definitely need blackout lining due to the morning sun - or, you would never need to set an alarm clock and wake up with the sun every morning.

    Hope you have a great weekend!


  4. Beautiful! I see rooms like this and question my need for bright, bold color in every room of my home.


Thank you for your lovely comments. They absolutely make my day!
