Let's Talk Bedrooms...

Lucky lucky Boo & Hubs - we inherited a barely used KING BED from a friend of ours and it's heaven!! We were sleeping in a Queen but with me standing at 5'11" and hubby at 6'4" I'm amazed our marriage has lasted! ;) 

I LUVS the king bed - and we had a Tempurpedic and this sucker is just as comfy! Anyhoot - back to the point here - future bedroom dreams! 

These are some shots of what the bed is looking like now. I have 3 30" x 30" down inserts just chillin back there until I find some fabric. We are on a spending freeze as far as anything major in the house (i.e. designer fabric!) so I think I will just sew some simple white duck pillows for now.

This bedroom is temporary until (one day!) we finish our 600 sq. ft. unfinished attic - which will become a master suite/ possible media room?

So, since this bedroom is temporary I don't want to even think about investing in the headboard, nightstands, etc... BUT below are some inspiration images of what I'm digging at the moment!

I like the layout of the bedroom below - not crazy about the scale/style of the sofa though.

This bed is amazing! Love the neutrals...

I love, love, LOVE this bedroom. It's so simple and minimal but I just love it. I love rooms that aren't "perfect" - a little bohemia and unfinished.

Oh and that light fixture needs to be mine! Think I can make one similar??


You can see the common thread on our future bedroom is a dramatic - possibly tufted headboard and light floors. 

The debate I have is I'm almost positive the bed will be centered under a window which means a huge tufted headboard will be covering most the window - and it's a small window! Maybe I'll hang window treatments the length of the bed and just keep them closed all the time? I love how I'm even worried about this minor question when we have to put electrical, plumbing, sheetrock and floors in!! Ha! 

I have to go up there and snap some pictures of the space - I can't believe I've never shared pictures of it on here yet! Do any of y'all have any future dream projects for your house? Are you pinning like crazy for inspiration?! Share! 

Here's the LINK to my Pinterest board for the room.

Love those images! That is tough when you don't want to cover up the light in the room. What about a lower headboard but a four poster with posts coming up? Still gives the feeling of coziness without covering window...
