Sweet Dreams and Coming Clean

You remember my friend Traci, she did the beautiful kitchen remodel that I featured HERE a few weeks ago.  Well, Traci's kitchen isn't the only beautiful thing she and her husband have created in their wonderful Georgia home. 

Their recent addition includes a beautiful master bedroom suite which is located right above their magnificent new kitchen.  It sits three stories up on their beautiful wooded lot, almost making it feel like it's nestled somewhere in the mountains, not a suburb of a major city where it is actually located.

The couple's new bedroom is pictured on the right and features french doors with a transom window, the doors are flanked by even more glass to bring in lots of natural light.  Shown here during construction, the doors will eventually lead to a second story deck.

The sloped ceiling adds architectural interest to the room and really frames the beautiful view to the outside.

 The view out of the new french doors makes you feel like you're living inside a treehouse!

These striking sconces add some bling to either side of the bed and were one of those fortuitous finds by Traci.  "They were closeouts from a local lighting store and have no name on them (they weren't in boxes)," says Traci, adding "I bought them simply because I liked them and had no idea where I'd even use them."  I think she found the perfect use for these gorgeous lights.

The bedding was another great find.  It's called Downing Street and was originally sold through Macy's but Traci found it on Ebay.  Score!  

Can you believe that a headboard as gorgeous as this one came from Target?!  It works beautifully with the new bedding.  The walls are painted a soft blue/gray color called Krypton by Sherwin Williams .

Now it's off to take a peek at their glamorous new master bath!  The cabinetry is all custom and made by the same wonderful carpenter who did their kitchen cabinets.

The same view but with the lights on, and you can really see how beautiful and sleek the sinks and fixtures are.  The sinks and faucets were yet another Ebay purchase!

Just off of the vanity area is the beautiful new shower.  "The type of marble found throughout the bathroom (with the exception of the shower floor) is Venatino marble, and we used a combination of sizes (12 x12 on the bathroom floor, 3 x 8 on the bathroom walls, 6 x 12 on the shower walls)," Traci explains.  


Tiling the entire shower gives it an opulent feel and the light streaming in through the window highlights all of the beautiful marble and glass tile.  A built in bench provides the perfect spot to sit before or after a long hot shower.  The basket weave tile on the floor is by AKDO Tile.


A niche inside the shower is punctuated by the same beautiful glass mosaic found throughout the rest of the bath.

The deep soaking tub is clad in the same dark stained wood as the vanities.  Two windows above the tub provide plenty of natural light, but soft roman shades can be lowered to ensure privacy.

More marble and another window, framed with crisp white trim, can be found in the water closet, located just to the left of the tub.  The walls are painted Passive by Sherwin Williams, the same color used in their new dining room downstairs.

Another view shows the layout of the room and how the angled roof line was used to its best advantage to create a unique, elegant, and inviting space that would be a wonderful place to start each and every day!


As if the bedroom and bathroom weren't enough, Traci and her husband also added a small kitchenette to their new space.  The iridescent glass mosaic tile backsplash came from Home Depot and is by MS International

I would like to give a special thank you to Traci for giving us a tour of her beautiful new master suite.  I promise I won't bug you (Traci) any least for a little while, but when your guest room and decks are done, all bets are off, and I'll want more pictures!


  1. Very elegant renos. I particularly love the master bath-sinks, tile etc.

    How are you doing with the new storm?

    Take care,

  2. Gorgeous! So much to take in . . . but all I know right now is, I want that Downing Street bedding, with that wonderful headboard and those absolutely amazing sconces! Wow. ~Lili
