At first I was going to call this post "Love Letters in the Master Bedroom" but I thought it would give you the wrong idea. Don't worry..... I will forever stay true to myself and continue to avoid mushy and / or sentimental stuff like it's my job.
I must explain, then, that when I chose to spell out the word "love" on our master bedroom wall it is clearly because I love:
Sleeping in. ;)
I keep waiting for the perfect time to take pictures of our bedroom. I'm slowly trying to find the right accessories, ceiling fixture, etc. But if I keep waiting for things to be perfect then my posts sure would be few and far between. So, even though I had to kick dust bunnies out of the picture because Alex lost the broom in the basement - here are a few recent pictures of our master bedroom.
After debating whether or not I wanted to display a shelf, a series of pictures, or a mirror over the headboard I decided to go with some reclaimed wooden wall letters instead.
Even though I am fully aware that I could have gotten Alex to cut out some letters with a jigsaw - I asked for these letters as a Christmas present so that I could make some progress on our bedroom without having to do any projects. (Yup, I'm lazy now.) Plus, the fact that the letters came in random colours added a little bit of
anxiety excitement to the purchase. I thought it would force me to use colours that weren't too matchy-matchy. (Um, why does my brain do that?)
I bought the wall letters online. I'll share where they are from at the end of this post in tiny letters because I'm not sure if I would recommend them. Poor Alex had a nightmare and a half trying to order them and get them shipped to Canada. After a few headaches we ended up with not one but two broken letters and shipping charges in excess of $150. Not cool, people, not cool. I just keep telling myself that broken-and-then-glued-back-together letters add to the charming, cottage-y look that I'm going for.
Despite the shipping stuff, I do think the letters look pretty cute up on the wall.
I might even admit that I LOVE them. Get it, love them?!?!?!
Wah, wah, waaaaaaah.
Please try not to be jealous of our Sony alarm clock from 1995. And the piece of scrapbook paper that I threw in a frame so it wasn't empty for this picture.
I'm liking how the room is coming together so far, minus the scrapbook paper, alarm clock, and dust bunnies.

P.S. I finally figured out why my other duvet was so lumpy. I had no idea how much good quality, down duvets actually cost. When I bought our previous one I thought I was paying a decent price at $49.99. It turns out that king sized duvets cost as much as $600. Wait, what!?!?!?! Alex and I bit the bullet and purchased a better quality duvet from Costco last week for around $230. The reviews were pretty good online. I feel a bit wasteful getting rid of the old one since we only had it a few months but it was poorly made and just had to go.
P.P.S. Happy Canada Day and Fourth of July and all that jazz!!! Yay for lemonade and fireworks! What are you up to?
