master bedroom inspiration

i have been craving change so much lately.  i’m not sure what’s going on with me?   i have been switching things around in the house like crazy, and as it turns out, i’m not super happy with most of my decisions.  grrr!

i’ve been slowly working on my bedroom for years, just a piece or 2 at a time, but never a full makeover.

in case you didn’t know, i’m not the type of person who decides to redo a room and then goes out and buys all new things.  um, no.  not my style at all.  first of all, money.  second, i like to buy unique items at flea markets and garage sales, and be creative with what i already have.

so here’s where i’m at:

master bedroom

these are some of the staples i already have in our room: pinched pleat comforter (similar), rug, curtains, and walnut colored wood floors.  thats what i want to keep and work with (plus all of our furniture – i like it all, in all of its randomness).

but this below, this is what i want the room to feel like.  its romantic and clean and a little rustic.

master bedroom

the top image is just what i want.  layers, wood, texture.  i’m seriously considering adding this wood to our bed wall, but the for the rest i want fresh white walls.  i have a chair sitting in the corner and would love to get it recovered, if i could ever decide on fabric.  the wood drum pendant, in a smaller version, would be awesome hanging next to the chair.  i’d love to paint our frames in a few shades of antique gold.  the antlers as jewelry holders is genius!

    I love your inspiration board it’s beautiful so relaxed and informal. Our master bedroom is in much the same way. I have decided to get carpet but don’t know what colour, I would love a gallery wall but have little space and I don’t like the lights we have. I think I’ll have to start an inspiration board too. Love everything you do so I’m sure it will turn out beautiful.

    I really like the lighter canvas and then having the option to choose colorful accessories that you can rotate according to the seasons or your mood.

    I love the feel of the from and the colors. I too am contemplating a wood wall. Question, how do you clean it or dust it?

    I’m feeling the same way! It’s almost a compulsive need to change things up. Love the ideas you have so far.
