master bedroom update.

i'm really excited to share some more photos of our sweet little house with you in the coming weeks. the only room you won't be seeing many photos of is our master bedroom. it's just bleh. it's pretty empty and the only things in it are random, not quite right pieces from other phases of life.

i would love for our bedroom to be a retreat, and a warm, inviting place in our house. so, one of my projects this year is to update it a bit. the thing is, it's not going to take too much -- a lot of the pieces are elsewhere, and just need to be brought together. plus, you know i love a simple room! thought i'd be sharing some of the things that have been inspiring me.

1. i've never had a headboard/bed in my adult life -- always a mattress on a metal frame. so, seriously swooning over this bed, though it's likely way out of our price range, so still hunting!

2. seriously digging these night stands! was able to see them in person when we were in dallas -- love how deep they are & the design!

3. we need a soft, cozy rug -- was going to do something neutral (but alas i always do that...) so might do something kind of fun. anyone have a favorite rug?

4. going to get a photo of the two of us done on canvas for above the bed. snagged a great groupon for canvas on demand thank to some good friend's recommendations!

5. my sweet maid of honor gave us this frame, in ivory, for our wedding present. this is ridiculous, but it has been sitting on our floor!! soooo ready to get it up on the wall, above the chair below for a little reading nook. i love the ee cummings quote on it: "i carry your heart with me (i carry it in my heart) i am never without it (anywhere i go, you go my dear)"

6. i have a great, old leather chair from college that i can't wait to bring to this room!

7. every good reading chair needs a cozy throw, i'm loving these from west elm -- hard to beat that price!

what am i missing?! excited to show it to you when it's all spruced up! xo

One Kings Lane often has headboards/beds at pretty reasonable prices. Just checking the shipping costs first!

Try Target for the headboard. I got a very Crate-and-Barrel-esque nailhead trimmed headboard for about $500 including shipping a few years ago. I love it; doesn't look cheap-o at all!

Sounds like fun! I've been eyeing those colorful throws since Christmas...

Bedroom updates are the most exciting! It makes such a difference when you get to zhush the space. I can't seem to get enough of West Elm these days. It's the perfect blend of modern, fun, and traditional -- and you can't beat the reasonable prices! I've been coveting the side tables myself. I only wish it wasn't so expensive to ship to Hawaii:)

Oh I know. My bedroom is the same way. It's just blah. There's nothing wrong with it. The truth is that I need to paint it but I really don't have the energy right now. Maybe I will get inspired soon. I love your selections. Your room will be beautiful. The bed is my favorite!

I updated my bedroom furniture two years ago and it was one of the best moves I ever did. Every time I walk in, I get so happy to have grown-up furniture! Good luck putting it all together.

Thanks for the link to West Elm too. I always forget about it!

Actually, my favorite blog site on bedroom matters is the one I have put together with my partner. We are professional cabinetmakers who call it like we see it. We have written about kitchens and bathrooms, both on design and on the many products one can purchase for remodeling projects.

Bedroom design is probably the most important space designing in any home interior. Bedroom design can have a contemporary, traditional, ultra modern or asian style depending on the interior of the house and the requirements of the individual.
