Bedroom Blues

Before the start of last week, decorating my bedroom was #2 on my list of things to do in my house before the end of the year. But last week, I paid $2,500 for a new transmission, a $300 vet bill, and $180 for a rental car. So now I'm not even sure that decorating my bedroom is even on the list anymore! However, that doesn't mean that I have to stop the planning and thought process... 

I have decorated every room in my house except for my bedroom. It is the room that I spend the most time in, so I want it to be perfect. Perhaps that's why it it's last on the list. Right now it's a blank palette. It has a bed and the basic furniture. No pictures are on the wall. It has no personality. It's not me. Here is proof... 


My definition of a master bedroom is a room that makes you sigh with relief after a long hard day at the office. It welcomes you with open arms and makes you feel cozy and warm. Every aspect of the room should reflect who you are, your personality, what you like and what you don't like. I personally like things really neat, really clean, really romantic, and really fresh. I don't like a lot of color, so I tend to lean more on white bedding with accents of color. I like the bedding to be soft and inviting with rows of plush pillows. I would love to have a padded headboard, but its going to be really hard to give up my bed that I purchased from The Bombay Company for just $250!! I like a mixture of traditional and modern elements with different textures. So I might keep the bed, find some white bedding, include a traditional soft reading chair, add some modern lighting, and maybe some modern nightstands. So much to do!

In the meantime, I have turned to pictures to get some inspiration. Here are some pictures of "my personality."

  1. I heart those floors in that 3rd picture. It's on the list. :) Great blog! I love knowing my future bedroom will hold such possibilities! :)

  2. Love your inspiration photos - totally my style with the sophisticated/retreat look.

  3. Love your bed!! so much potential. I would start by making a painted fabric rug (search for tutorials) and make some pillows within your desired color scheme. Cheapest way to add splash to a room. and will inspire some affordable ideas. good luck.

  4. @ Wendy- Thanks for your comment! Great suggestion!
