bedroom updates and inspiration

Emily Oster

For the past two weekends, I have been working on painting our bedroom. Weekend one involved patching holes and edging around trim, windows and doors. Yesterday, I did a second coat of edging and one coat of rolling. The walls were a lime green so its going to probably take three coats of rolling. Its been slow going but if I squint my eyes, I can begin to see it as the calm and cozy room I imagine it to be.

I see the space as being primarily white with lots of texture - serene but still interesting. So far I have selected paint colors - Benjamin Moore Swiss Coffee for the walls and BM Simply White for the ceiling and trim. We also have installed bamboo shades and have ordered a modern ceiling fan. In terms of furniture, we have two matching nightstands that I plan on refinishing. A bird's eye maple dresser from my parent's house that I love and definitely want to keep. Another high boy style dresser I would like to replace and I have already blogged about dreaming of a new bed. We also have two vintage white lamps and a cowhide rug. Overall its a good base but there is definitely still room for a few more standout pieces. 

I have been looking at images to help get my head around the overall feel and to also show Jeff what I have in mind. 

With this room its the bed that totally sends me swooning. The general feel is really close to what I am after with have an antique bed and everything else being really neutral.

In this image its the art. Its simplistic but impactful. I have a few Kevin Russ photographs I plan on hanging in the space maybe in an arrangement similar to this.

Its the lighting that does it for me in this room. Got to have a little bit of brass to warm up all the white.

Finally, I love the mix of styles and scales in this bedroom. Its unexpected but still cohesive. It also masters the blending of the old with the new which is something I really hope to achieve in our space.
