House Crashing: Master Bedroom & Bath

Hi friends,
We've made it upstairs in our current house crashing of my friend and neighbor Alison's house. I am in love with her relaxing, tranquil bedroom with subtle pops of red.

These baskets are not only beautiful but functional. Don't you love the large distressed mirror that is propped up against the wall. Alison shared with me that it was originally black.

Alison shared with me that she loves waking up in the morning and seeing this beach print. What a great spot to curl up with a cup of tea and a book!

I am so inspired with this idea of putting hooks in your wall as art pieces. These display beach hats, beads from Alison's grandmother, and beach bag.

Now, let's head into Alison's bathroom. Look at how pretty this arrangement is on this lovely tray.

I love the idea of a woven basket holding extra towels.

I love the bead board in the bathroom with a ledge for displaying treasures from the sea.

Check out this antique looking mercury glass mirror with beautiful sand dollars.

Look how creative Alison is, this was a message board but she repurposed it to display her necklaces and it's so pretty!

Who doesn't love a curious sea turtle?

How much fun are we having being inspired by Alison's coastal inspired home near Raleigh, North Carolina? Stop back by tomorrow and I'll share more.

Take care friends.
Happy decorating & living,


  1. Oh Megan, after ages of searching for the look I wanted my spare bedroom to have (I didn't know what I wanted; just knew I'd recognise it when I saw it!!!) you have found it for me!!! The black and white pillows are perfect! I'd love to know where your friend, Alison, got them - even tho I live in Australia lol.
    This blog only lets me write as anonymous, so I'll give you my email address. I'd so love it if you could point me in the right direction. My walls are the same colour as Alison's and so is my bed, but I think that I would prefer black, fine candlestick lamps with white shades - I've seen them in a catalogue. My room isn't as large or light as Alison's, so I think I need a lighter option. (The Gandhi quote Alison used is my mantra - I am a special needs teacher).

  2. HI Jane,
    Thanks so much for your comment from down under. Where do you live in Australia? I've shared your questions with Alison and I'll email you directly once I hear back from her. Yeah for teachers! Both Alison and I are teachers as well!
    Take care.
