Master Bedroom Inspiration Board

When I first started this blog, my goal was to decorate the house. Since gettin' hitched, we had been saving money.. so were trying not to spend money on "unimportant" things like decorating the house. Until I got utterly sick of living in an undecorated house and joined blog world.. with the mission to decorate on the cheap.

My first goal was to pretty on up the master bedroom. And I started doing that.. back in October. I made monograms.. and pillows.. and... err, that's as far as I got. Because then I got sidetracked with other neato projects like sisal rope baskets, desk redos and sunburst mirrors.

But lately I've been gettin' that itch again... that {{run on sentence alert}} [I need to do something to this room right now or I will never get any sleep due to the nonstop influx of ideas flowing through my head on how to decorate it as I am trying to fall asleep]. So one early morning last week, fresh up from the mind marathon of the evening idea influx the night before, I put together an inspiration board for our room. And me oh my, I am so excited to get started on the room again!

1. My Whole Heart Antique Sign by Sugarboo Designs. This sign has my whole heart, sorry hubs. In fact, Sugarboo Designs has a whole bunch of signs at Modern Chic Home. And I love them all. Like this one, and this one, and this one. However, they're also a pretty penny. So this will be another DIY project for me, although I think I'd make my words red.

2.Anthropologie's Moving Light Sconce. I'm going for a little reading nook, and I think this would be a perfect touch.

3. Stack of books, from a West Elm flier, first posted here. I absolutely love books. I've wanted to use a stack of 'em as a table ever since I saw this pic, but don't think I could live with such a small table top space bedside table. But, for a reading nook.. it would be perfect!

4. West Elm's Tulip Upholstered Chair. Love the grey. Love even more that Ikea has one just like it, for a fraction of the price. Check it Mr. Tullsta Chair.

5. The bed was in a flier I got from West Elm. This was actually my original inspiration for the entire room. I absolutely love it. It reminds me so much of Celadon, a local store we have here. However, after many hours searching, I can't for the life of me find the pic online or determine which bed it was. So I'll have to leave you with this.. my original post with the pic.

6. Oh yep, that would be my very own sunburst mirror. I've already got plans for my next mantle set up and so I plan on moving this baby into our room.

7. Ikea's Hemnes 6-drawer chest. I actually have this dresser in black. Bought it a few years back and it's still looks new.. props to IKEA. However, the big black dresser happens to be an eyesore.. because it's big... and black... but I could never justify painting it because it looks new still! But, fear not, I will work up the courage and this baby is going to be painted gray.

8. That's the color of our floor. I just added it on here to see what everything would look like with it.

9. Anthropologie's Cooled Globed Lamp. Grey, Red and Turqoise and the colors for the apartment. So I think this would add a great touch.

10. A rug. We need one.. for cheap. I'm still trying to come up with ideas on how to accomplish this.

11. I absolutely love West Elm's rose pillow cover. If only it were red. But haven't you seen all those great DIY versions around town? Like this one up there.. if only I could figure out where I saved that picture from!

12. How neat is PB's Potters Wheel Table? I'm lovin' it!

What do you think? Does it flow?


Linking up to the Newbie Party over at Debbie Doos!


  1. Looks dreamy too me! We are talking about redoing our Master, getting new furniture and I have no clue what direction I want to go. Thanks for sharing and for joining my newbie party.

  2. I think all those things would be on my wish list, too! Sounds like you are a fan of red-like me. I'm visiting from Debbie's newbie party.

  3. I think it looks super & quite calming. I love the pop of color and frills with the pillow!! I need to make me a inspiration board!

  4. It looks great! I love so many of the things on your board.

    I'm here from Debbiedoo's party and am glad I found your blog. I hope you'll visit me too.

    Have a great day.

  5. Gorgeous. I think you could make that pillow in red.
