I couldn't agree more, Dmitri.
Not only were the walls pretty gross, but we were using trash bags as interim window treatments and my desk had become an orphanage for things that did not have a home. Not exactly the kind of ambiance that sings "master suite." Nor was it the kind of place where I would want to have a home birth. It actually made me want to scream, "take me to a hospital, NOW." And that's saying a lot, since I am not a huge fan of hospitals or their decor choices.
A picture to demonstrate:
So we (and be we, I mean David and a friend of ours) painted away the tumultuous puke-orange color and replaced it with a crisp, clean white. Then they got down with a stencil from Sunny's Goodtime Paint. It was just what the room needed. A mixture of peace and funk. We threw on our Anthropologie bedding (after cleaning it from the previous diaper incident), and hung faux-wood white blinds. So without further ado (if you haven't already skipped this rambling to get to the good stuff), photos of our master bedroom:

Cue the "We've come a long way, baby..." I'm loving it. I might never leave the bedroom, as opposed to only going in there with the lights out to sleep. I obviously have some accessorizing, window treating, and organizing to do. But I could not be more thrilled with the progress we've made. I sleep better at night, and my crazy hormonal nesting monster is appeased, for the moment.
