There is so much I want to do in our new house! The great thing is it doesn't need any work at all. We could move in, set our furniture down and be done. But you know I have more planned than that! While I don't want to do anything major like renovating or even painting, I do have plans to change most light fixtures and then really make it come alive with furnishings and accessories (my favorite part anyway!). The master bedroom is first on the list mostly because we want to upgrade to a king bed and finally graduate to dressers I did not own when I was 4 haha. Here is the very lovely blank slate we're working with. I love the large window, vaulted ceiling and textured carpet (I can't believe I'm saying I love a carpet, but this one I actually do!).
I want this room to feel very sophisticated and relaxing, like a luxury hotel or spa. I've been really inspired by Monika Hibbs' master bedroom. Isn't her custom headboard gorgeous?!
And here are my plans for the space. The white tufted wingback headboard will be the star of the show, piled high with sumptuous linens and flanked by gold and white night stands.
bed | night stands | lamps | chandelier | artwork | dresser | mirror | curtain rod | curtain trim | pillows | frames | orchid | rug
I would also love to infuse some interest and personality into the room with curtains trimmed with this gorgeous Samuel and Sons trim tape. It's those kind of details that make a room feel custom. I'm not sure I can handle the price tag though haha. I'm hoping I can locate it for a good price or find something similar.
While we're on the subject of bedrooms, does anyone have an opinion on mattresses? I've been looking into the ones you order online that come in a box and expand in your house, but I'm not sure I'm brave enough to buy without trying them out. Does anyone have a favorite brand - either traditional or online?
I am having so much fun making plans for our new house! If all goes according to plan we will move in at the beginning of July. Of course it will take some time to get settled and we may have to save up for some of the bigger purchases we're wanting to make, but I'm sure I'll have lots to show you over the next several months! Can't wait!
