inspiration workshop {bedroom}

I am so excited for the return of Gussy Sew's Inspiration Workshop!  This month's theme is BEDROOMS.

I was thrilled when Gussy announced this month's theme. (And I might have let out a little Gussy yeow!) I am starting the process of re-doing our master bedroom this month.  My goals for our bedroom is to have an actually headboard/bed frame, furniture that goes together, carve out a space for my desk, and create a calm and relaxing room.

Our current bedroom is a mix-match of stuff and furniture, does not seem to always flow well, and is in much need of new curtains and bedding.  It has been this way for as long as I can remember and it deserves some much needed attention.  I am so excited to begin this process!

Here is my inspiration and vision for our bedroom...

I love this bed frame and dresser from Ikea.

I really like this desk area.  I hope to create something similar in a corner of the room.



I also want to create a little sitting area.  I am dreaming of relaxing in a comfy chair and reading for a few hours on end. :)

I have yet to really settle on a color pallet.  Currently I am thinking of white bedding and curtains.  I think that will look so nice with the dark wood of the furniture.  It will also allow me to create (and change) a pop of color with ease.  The only thing that makes me nervous about white is our dog... but that is what bleach is for, right?!?

I am also not sure what to do with the walls.  We have a large photograph from our wedding that I would like to hang in the room.  I am not sure if I should hang a lot on the walls, paint an accent wall, paint the whole room, have more pictures from our wedding printed and framed,  look for a large piece of artwork, and so on and so on.  I am keeping my eyes open for some inspiration and ideas in this area.

I am super excited to begin this process and see our bedroom transform into an amazing space.  I know it will be a calm, relaxing, space that we will look forward to retreating to at the end of the day.

What would your dream bedroom have?
