Bedroom Inspiration

I’m slowly working my way through my apartment, decorating room by room.  And since the living room and office are all mostly done (although I’m still on the hunt for the perfect desk for the office), I’m now starting to focus on the bedroom – and I’ve pulled a few of my favorite bedroom images (all from my tumblr page) to help figure out my next steps.

The room itself is pretty tiny, just enough room for our bed and a couple of dressers.  We have three windows, so the room gets plenty of light during the day, and we installed bamboo blinds like the ones above.

Since the room isn’t very big, I’m focused on trying to make the space cozy and peaceful without being dark.  The walls were already painted a light beige color when we moved in, which in the absence of any other interesting features or architectural details feels a bit flat.  I really like the idea of at least one wall with some pattern, and I love (love, love) the soft floral details in the wallpaper from Rita Konig’s bedroom above.

Or maybe just a bit of shimmer on one accent wall?  Perhaps on the wall behind the bed…

I love how the two bedrooms above still have masculine elements even with the floral and toile wallpaper.  Neither is quite what I have in mind, but I really like the darker accents incorporated into each room.

Sigh… my dream summer bedroom.  Preferably somewhere close to a beach!

  1. ohhhhh girl. I would take ANY of these too! I love anything vintage, airy and fresh for a bedroom! (and our bedroom is SO shady and cozy, i know for FACT it makes it harder to wake up in the AM!)
    And the wood panels in the first photo, like a sweet cozy beach house room…and i can haz dat blanket?!
