My bedroom is mind-numbingly boring. I can’t wait to get started on it eventually. I want to hang my Moroccan wedding blanket on a wall somewhere in there (maybe across from the bed this time instead of as a headboard) and have a shelf with all of my nature/wunderkammer-ish knick knacks I currently house on my living room mantel. And I want it to be very serene. I was searching through my photo stash looking for inspiration, and I quickly realized that I do not want white walls or anything close to white (wow there alot of white-walled bedrooms out there….WHY?!). I think ideally I would like either dark brown or a medium grey-ish colour. We shall see. I have a bunch of Farrow & Ball paint samples to try out. Here are bedrooms I found that really work for me.

On the subject of bedrooms, I do need to invest in a larger bed. The queen with 2 adults and a plethora of cats just isn’t enough space. This means our current mattress will be used in our guest room – we finally have a guest bedroom after 8 years!
Day beds with trundles are great for keeping your guests warm and cosy these coming winter months. Lounge area by day, bed by night – your guests will love relaxing in the comfort of your home.
