Master Bedroom Project

This week I scored a pair of vintage bamboo chinoiserie chairs from a local estate sale.  I love them so much that I've decided to keep them for my own home.  But now, I need to decide how I'm going to refinish them!

My master bedroom has been in a state of flux for a few months.  It has changed drastically from the photos that appear on the blog.  (Visit Master Bedroom).   If nothing more, this project has made me realize that I need to get some updated shots of the bedroom up here!

Forgive the overly saturated color of this bedroom shot.  I'm sharing it here so you can have a reference point of where I'm starting from.  Earlier this year, I swapped out the pinstripe duvet for a custom duvet made from Cotton & Quill's art deco collection.  I needed to work around the curtains in the room because we put some money into them and it's too soon to update them (budget wise).

I thought this Runnin Wild pattern from Cotton & Quill tied together the existing colors in the room nicely.

Here are the swatches on the bed during the planning phase.  I had the front made in the art deco pattern with above and the back of the duvet in the yellow.

I love how the duvet fabric blends with the chevron teal rug that was already in there.

Here is a very rough shot of the completed duvet with the drapery.  I promise to share better photos as I move forward with this project, but this will give you an idea of what's in there now.

I plan to remove the gray fireside chairs that are in the room (in fact they are already gone and put into our guest bedroom).  The new bamboo chairs will go on both sides of the fireplace.  The natural frames will already blend beautifully in there if I decide not to paint them.  But you know me, everything is better with a pop of color.  The decision is still out on whether or not I will paint the frames.  

The seat cushions will definitely be recovered and I'm currently gathering swatches to consider.  
Here are some considerations: 

These Broome Street Studio designs are not as saturated in color as they appear here.  I love the peacock and think that would tie in with the art deco theme of the current duvet.  

However, this Impari Vase by Thibaut is a dead match for color (I've already received the swatch).  The jury is still out.

Here is the impari vase on a Society Social Chair.

I will share more photos as I continue our bedroom update.  What are your preferences for the fabric and color choices for these chairs?
