How To TASTEFULLY Decorate For Football Season

When you love Football and Interior Design (like me!), this can be the best time of the year! What better way to spruce up your home than to give it a Football Facelift? The real question is, can you actually add a few touches to your home without it looking super tacky? I think so! The key is to keep it light, general and not too heavy on the actual team. For example, if you love the Florida Gators (like I do!) then adding orange and blue touches throughout, with a few key Gator pieces, is enough. Everything doesn’t have to be logo-ish. Know what I mean? Restraint is your friend. Let’s walk through it together! (Make sure your scroll all the way down, the best is saved for last!)

Building Our Dream Home – Master Bedroom Reveal

The time has come to reveal one of my favorite rooms (apart from my master bathroom and closet of course), and that is the Master Bedroom! It was so important to me to create a bedroom that was fresh, bright, clean and happy. As the room has a large wall of windows there is a lot of natural light coming in so I wanted to really capitalize on that.

Let’s explore the details of the Master Bedroom!

The Beginning of the Design

The design for the master bedroom started with embracing the natural light of the room and the Aerin blue and white bedding I found. This influenced the rest of the design for the master bedroom so I wanted to create a beautiful backdrop for this so the bedding can really shine.

The Finishes

I wanted to frame the wall where the bed is positioned so I had a grid wall built onsite and painted in the trim color to match the other trim work. The main wall color is Evans Greige.

Furniture

I sourced the furniture from a variety of different places because of the specific look and feel I wanted to create. I’ve learned that blue and white needs some black elsewhere in the room so it looks sharp, not too sweet, but just right. 

When I found this bed I knew it was perfect for the room! And while the bed is from Serena and Lily, I actually purchased a used one which I found locally.

The nightstands are actually dressers. I love using reclaimed or antique furniture pieces to make an interior unique. The dressers I found are larger than the average nightstand because I like using oversized furniture pieces to ground a room. These have been centered on the windows.

I added a blue armchair to the corner as an extra pop of color and accent piece. Near the large French doors I chose a white chaise that is slipcovered so it’s easy to zip off and wash. It’s super comfortable and perfect for curling up and reading a book.

On the empty wall opposite the bed I wanted to add something simple yet elegant, so I found this slim alter style console table that has then been styled with ginger jars and books.

Window Treatments

Instead of going down the traditional custom window treatment route, I found an amazing Amazon seller that makes drapery panels. I was able to ask them to leave the first pleat out so it created a flat area for a trim detail. When these arrived I hot glued the trim on to the outer area that was left.

In addition to the drapery panels, I have installed fixed roman shades with a standard store bought roller shade behind. The roman shades are purely decorative, but the roller shade behind has a remote so privacy can be easily achieved while maintaining the pristine look throughout the day.

Lighting

Instead of using a ceiling light in the center of the room, I have installed a ceiling fan from Fanimation. On the perimeter of the room I have used standard spot lights to fully illuminate the bedroom.

On the nightstands we have used these elegant table lamps that dress the nightstands perfectly. And to create the perfect little reading corner by the white chaise, I have used this floor lamp. It’s a great little corner!

Accessories

To finish off the master bedroom, I’ve added an array of books, ginger jars, plants and decorative pieces to style the various surfaces.

Firstly I wanted to add a large rug to soften the floor and add some natural texture to the room. It seemed only right to purchase a budget friendly sisal rug. You can spend hundreds and thousands on large rugs but for simple natural textured ones like this, you won’t notice a difference in quality by going cheaper. 

I like to style rooms with faux trees so there’s no need to worry about watering them – or unintentionally killing them! This one is my favorite that I use a lot.

I found a gorgeous black and white abstract piece of artwork that works well for the wall to the left of the bed. For behind the bed, I found a traditional federal mirror to install.

All of these accessories work well together by balancing the blue and white colors with black and dark brown items as grounding items. The natural textures used throughout the room help to add visual interest and comfort throughout too.

Building Our Dream Home – Pool Bath Reveal

Next up on the room reveals for our dream home is the Pool Bath! This bathroom is right off our pool so we wanted this to be super practical for both kids and adults to use.

Let’s dive deeper into the design of the Pool Bath. All of the info and products are linked below in a handy Pinterest-ready image. 

*If you’re just joining us, this is another installment of a series documenting the building of our personal dream home.  So far we’ve tackled: Inspiration | Floorplan | Location | Breaking Ground | Roofing | Windows | Insulation | Sheetrock & Plaster  | Selecting Paint Selecting Flooring | Selecting Bathtubs | Selecting Lighting | Selecting Fans | Selecting Cabinets | Powder Room Reveal | Selecting Countertops | Kitchen Reveal | Whole House Reveal | Master Bathroom Reveal

Design Kick-Off

To kick off the design for the pool bathroom, I started with this beautiful wallpaper from Quadrille! I have seen this print before and LOVED it, but didn’t have the right space or project to use it for until now. The big and bold print of the wallpaper is the real showstopper in this bathroom as all the fixtures need to be practical and long lasting, so it was great to use this wallpaper! I kept all the other selections simple to support this wonderful wallpaper.

Plumbing

I wanted to keep the plumbing for the pool bath similar to the other areas of the house but slightly simpler in design. I chose the Bancroft series from Kohler so all the plumbing fixtures are still classic yet modern at the same time. The fixtures are practical for this bathroom while still being in keeping with the rest of the house’s plumbing too. I chose polished nickel as the finish for the plumbing in this bathroom (and most others).

For the shower, I went with the single handle temperature pressure shower head.

Vanity Unit

For the vanity unit I designed a smaller version of the furniture style vanities we have elsewhere in the house. It’s a simple two-door cabinet with furniture style detailing and it makes the room feel like it’s more than just a pool bath! I added simple polished nickel knobs to the doors too.

The Finishes

The finishes for the pool bath are similar to other areas of the house, although the plumbing is polished nickel and we have opted for cheaper finishes here.

I chose a simple white subway tile for the shower walls to keep the costs down. And the shower floor is a white thassos tile, with a contrasting dark blue main floor tile from The Tile Shop.

The paint color in this bathroom is my signature Evans Greige, the same paint color as elsewhere in the house. And to finish the beautiful vanity unit I chose a simple white Quartz countertop.

Accessories

The accessories here are understated compared to other areas of the house but considering the size of this bathroom, I love the choices made here!

Keeping with the same blue and white theme, the vase was a must-have to tie everything together.

I wanted to add an accent color to this room to give it its own personality. I found these pink Turkish towels and I instantly fell in love! They add a contrast to the space while still making it feel polished and well put together. I then added some pink roses to the vase to bring the whole scheme together.

I love this round mirror that has a slightly more coastal theme. The raw rattan detailing brings warmth to the space and I love how playful it makes the bathroom.

The main lighting for the pool bath is a lovely flush mount fixture from Hudson Valley Lighting called Rye! It pulls the other nickel finishes together to make the space feel cohesive, and this has then been supplemented with a recessed downlight.

And lastly, I picked up the toilet paper holder from Kohler too in the same range as the plumbing!

I am so pleased with how the bathroom turned out! It’s fun and interesting and still works with the rest of the house.

I gathered up all of the info, complete with links, and put them in a Pinterest real board below. Be sure to “Pin It” for future reference.
