Renovation Planning: The Master Bedroom

We are in the quoting phase of our upcoming addition, which is the least fun part in my opinion.  Spending tens of thousands of dollars on things like insulation, pipes and shingles isn’t as exciting as say, designing your new master bedroom. Not that I’ll have any money left after building this thing and will probably be sleeping on an Aero bed on the floor, but a girl can dream! We all need to have goals, right? :)

I’ve been so drawn to white, neutral and very California feeling bedrooms as of late.  My entire house is more grey, black and white so I kind of want to make this space a little different in my return to TAN and smidge of warmth. I know, tan! I feel like it’s become the forgotten step-sister of the insanely popular grey but I’m thinking it’s time to bring it back into my repertoire.  This room has the feel of what I’m imagining… natural and bright, not too formal but not too casual either….

My ideal bed would a mix of the one below on my board with a limed wood frame, except with an upholstered headboard in linen or white leather like this one from Bernhardt.  A custom bed isn’t exactly in the cards here, but maybe some manufacturer is reading and will make one like this I can buy!

Here’s what I’m thinking- light tan/taupe walls, print drapes, lacquer side tables, marble lamps and hints of brass…. oh, and a large print of Paris on lucite panel to wake up to every morning!

My two IDEAL drape fabrics would be this Peter Dunham or Christopher Farr Cloth but at $100+ per yard and five widows to dress, that just ain’t happenin’ unless I sell 100,000 copies of my book. So this Lacefield block print may be the answer- a similar look for much less!
