Around the House

So for my first “Around the House” post, I thought I would share my ideas for our bedroom. We pretty much painted and designed the whole first floor but ran out of money when it came to the upstairs when we first bought the house. So after having our mattress on the floor for one to many months I am ready and itching to redue our room. I have been thinking about this for months and months and finally have settled on a design that I am in love with. I think it will be such a great retreat to go to at night.  I was going for modern, romantic with mostly neutral whites and grays with hints of a mustard yellow and this rasberry purple sort of color.  The walls will be painted a light gray with white trim. The wall behind the bed will have a hand painted mural of white birch trees. It wont be super stand outish- just sort of noticable.  There will be 2 floating shelves above the bed with different size frames leaned against each other.  2 chandliers will be hung from the ceil to act as side lamps above the night tables. The bed linens will mostly be white with some grey sheets and accent pillows. There will be a coverlet that will be folded at the end fo the bed that I got at target which set the color scheme for the whole room. On the floor at the end of the bed will be a round gray shag rug.  Here is my story board of the actual items all found at either ikea, target, cb2 or room and board. Then my drawing of the layout.  Let me know what you think!
