Inspiring Master Bedrooms

While dreaming up designs for other's can be so fun, often I get really stuck when it comes to my own personal space. Our marriage-space-integration is still mid project and I am suffering from a huge case of creative brain freeze!  When it comes to our master bedroom, trying to reinvent space without "reinventing the wheel" has proven to be quite the challenge.

Since I posted about finding my fun painted dresser, I have added a huge grey painted mirror to the fireplace, a massive light mustard chevron cornice board to the double windows and an antique brass dressing mirror to the dresser. Just yesterday I am pretty sure I found a pair of silk gray curtains, but just can not decide if they are too formal for the room. I am still searching hard for lighting solutions and trying to avoid buying two new bedside tables. . . which I am pretty sure I need but don't want to purchase.

This morning while reading my daily's I found these inspiring master bedroom images on DecorPad. What do you think:

bedrooms - paint bed lighting rug blue walls  Vanessa De Vargas Turquoise LA

I love how cozy this bedroom feels! The curtains are hung perfectly high and layered with bamboo shades. The texture here is divine.

bedrooms - white slipcovered headboard white lamp Missoni pillows flokati rug  The World According to Jessica Claire Style at Home  Chic bedroom

This room is AWESOME! Although design wise, not relevant to our bedroom. . .if I ever found a (insert cheap) Hermes blanket anywhere in the world, even used to shreds, I would take it home and redecorate all around it.  *Oh and the print of the light fixture is so fresh.

bedrooms - gray walls white black cowhide round ottomans  Room & Board Design Team Emily J. Followill Photography Atlanta Home Mag  Modern bedroom

From Room and Board's Design Team! Everything I have been reading says that the bedroom is the one place for lighting symmetry. This gives me hope that if I never find that, I could still make our bedroom work!

bedrooms - caramel leather tufted bench white slipcovered headboard bed crisp white ruffled bedding tan walls mirrored nightstand mismatched nightstands

Mismatched bedside tables and lamps, probably the end of my story the way this search has been going. And guess what, It still looks awesome! Also on my list, is to BEG Scotty to let me get rid of our ceiling fan. I want a pretty chandelier in our bedroom so badly. . . .someday maybe!

bedrooms - lilac purple wingback bed purple flower pillow gray bedding gold leaf mirrored nightstands ivory round tufted skirted storage ottoman purple curtains lilac purple roman shades fold lamps art

Putty Walls and layered curtains are beyond grand and mirrored side tables just might work in our space. Plus I love the round ottoman at the end of the bed, instead of the expected bench.

Thanks for listening to my dreary, rainy morning design musings. Off to lay on the couch and watch Elmo with Cooper. . .priceless moments!
