It seems this week I am not actually doing anything around the house. Wonder why that is? Just take a look at this post about the new addition to our house, and it’s enough said – Luther takes up a lot of our time! So rather than make something, or fix something (which believe me, I have plans and materials for), I am drawn to the computer, because that is much easier to put that down and tend to whiny/hungry/playful/badly behaved dog than a hot glue gun and some sticks! Sounds like a thrilling craft project, by the way, doesn’t it? Wait until I actually make it! Today’s wishful thinking blog is around the Master Bedroom. If I ever get around to it (which I eventually will, of course), I think it’s going to look fantastic! Here’s what I’m considering:
This is what we currently have in the room. That’s right… a bed and a dresser. LITERALLY no other furniture. There’s a collapsible hamper in the corner and an old pillow turned doggy bed resting beside me. Fantastic, right?
Here’s an idea of what’s in the room:
I have no idea about the wall colour yet. I can’t decide on whether we should go with a warm grey, all white or possibly an off white. Tough call… I have a very hard time deciding on wall colours.
I have big hopes for this room and lots of inspiration to go with them. My favourite parts are: the textured wall in image 1, the sunburst mirror in image 2 and the knitted pouff in 3 (I would be happy with one of those in each room of the house!) Of course I love all of the white, but I also love what happens when you mix white and off-whites together. It creates such a subtle and yet rich texture that makes me think of the foam on a perfect cappuccino. It’s delicious looking!
Here are the next contenders. I love love love that window seat in the first image (and that view), along with the wall sconces that are so practical, simple and attractive. I have to say the chandy and that crazy adorable ottoman are my faves in the second picture. The third one kind of has it all – the textures, the lamps, and the natural fiber rug.
Here are my dreams for the dresser. I would love for the mirror to just sit on top of the dresser rather than be up on the wall. The big green monster came with a big green mirror, and if redone properly, it might just do the trick! Also loving the lamps on the dresser. Are they practical? Maybe not… I could just have one on it and still get the look without taking up all the space that two would need.
On the wishlist for the bedroom is also a bench of some sort. I want to be able to put our pillows on something so they don’t end up on top of the dresser at night. We can no longer drop them on the floor because Luther will make a doggy fort out of them! Here are the options I’m considering:
I do want the room to be a bit romantic, and also modern. Sounds impossible? We’ll see! I have a couple of DIY projects I want to get started on to get a bit of the look into the room.
