The showstopper in this room will definitely be the tall headboard. Since headboards (and beds generally) will last you for decades, its an area where I feel you should be willing to pay for the quality and look that you want. We had a very specific design in mind - a modern wingback style with nailhead trim - so we planned on working with my friend Staci, re-upholsterer extraordinaire at Switch Studio, to get exactly what we were looking for. We'll dress the bed with a collection of fabrics.
The rest of the room will be a mix of vintage and thrifted pieces and inexpensive finds. One of the first pieces purchased for the room was the chevron rug. I know that chevron has been over-played in the blogging world, but I think to "real" homeowners, it's a classic style that has longevity. Plus, RugsUSA was having one of their amazing sales so we got it at a crazy low price!
My sister has always liked the look of the dresser in my living room so I put a similar piece in her room. I've balanced it with a modern Ikea desk and vanity chair that can act as a dressing/side table. To keep things feeling feminine, I've recommended drapery in this stunning floral print. I literally gasped when I saw this fabric as I knew my sister would just love it and it would "make" the room. Of course, we need some bling so I suggest this shimmery chandelier over the bed and a gallery of gold frames on the opposite wall. We'll be bringing this room together over the coming weeks. I'm a little envious of this dream bedroom... I could move right in!
