Hope you all are having a good week! I was in Pottery Barn the other day looking at accessories and things for our bedroom. I came out with a couple of pillows for it, so I hope to post a few pictures of that room later in the week. In the meantime, I thought it would be fun to look at some pretty bedrooms I have found. I know you will recognize the first one up there from the movie Something’s Gotta Give. It’s so beautiful, maybe that is the only photo I need to post today!
Well, maybe we do need to see a few others. Let’s start with a couple of blue rooms. I really like the bed in this one.
I also like the bed in this one too.urban grace via houseofturquoise.com
Do you have a bench at the foot of your bed? We don’t because there is no space, but I would love to have one if it would fit there.
Now let’s look at a few bedrooms with neutral color schemes. There’s an interesting piece at the foot of this bed.
The stained wood really adds a lot in this next bedroom, and the bed has very similar lines to the one in the second photo. Doesn’t it?
One thing I like to keep in mind when thinking about a master bedroom, is that it is a bedroom for two people. For this reason, I don’t usually like a room that is too feminine. I just can’t see my husband liking a room full of ruffles and frills. For us, the room needs to be a mixture. This next one has masculine elements, but it is balanced by the feminine canopy.
But I know that room is too dark for me. What do you think of this yellow one? I like the plank walls and gingham upholstered bed. The tailored lines of the drapes keep it from being too feminine.
I have to include a couple of Sarah Richardson’s rooms. I just love her style, (and I know you have seen these over and over again.) The yellow in the quilt here really adds to the look.
And another one by her that again uses a quilt.countryliving.com
I also think Melanie Davis does great design work. She uses a quilt for a bright accent in this Georgia house.
The last one I want to share with you is my favorite, and it is quite old. Gary McBournie did the design, and I love that mix of patterns!
When I was working on my Pinterest dream house post, I searched through many images on my Pinterest boards. Surprisingly, I found a common thread between a large number of my favorite bedrooms – the color. Most are blue, and even beyond that, many have a dose of red in them for accent. Seeing the group of photos together and really studying them, helped me to see this. I truly had no idea. So if you are thinking of redecorating, go study your Pinterest boards…it really may help you find a decorating direction!
