Master Bedroom Inspiration

2011 is just a baby and I already can't wait to get started on the first project of the year -- our bedroom. The current state of the room isn't horrible, it just isn't as cozy as I would like it to be.

Here we are today:

During the next couple of weeks, we'll be busy painting, adding chair rail, recovering the headboard, and a adding few other special touches. I'm hoping to have some progress to show soon! But, in the meantime, here is a peek at some of the colors and fabrics we'll be working with:

I love the look of mercury glass and am dying to get my hands on these lamps from Pottery Barn. But, at $200 each, they are a little out of my price range. Luckily, the good people at HomeGoods keep a close eye on PB and have similar lamps for $40-50.

I've had my eye on the clean lines and fresh look of this bedding from Restoration Hardware for quite some time. As soon as I have $450 to drop on a comforter, that's the first place I'll go. Until then, I'm heading back to HomeGoods, where I found a nearly identical set for less than what I would spend just on the Restoration shams!

Well, that headboard isn't going to recover itself. Progress pics will be up soon!
