Inspiration is everywhere...just thinking out loud.

 ...love the cool wall color mixed with bright patterns...the stools at the end of the bed are cool...and I own so many of those already, white lamps, yep...got those too...I could totally pull off this look in my bedroom...only this missing is that beautiful high, private window...


 ...more stools at the end of the bed...I got that...clear glass lamps, yep, got that too...ethnic, natural pillows...check.

...okay, this is where it could all go wrong and I could get stuck with the paint color I'm already living with...bedroom wall color, check...got that...hats hanging on wall, check, got that...painted black sidetable...I'm one coat of paint away from that...hanging lights on each side of the bed, check...I got  that...punch of texture and hot pink...hum?  If I have all of this already, why doesn't my room look or feel like this?  Sigh...pretty...maybe too pretty for my taste.




 Sigh...okay, the wall color is cool enough to appeal to me...I would never hang a shelf over my bed...bad idea.  The simplicity of this room kinda reminds me of an "upscale" jail cell...you know the kind you go to after stealing 20 billion dollars from old people...


...we have all seen this room...can I just say, I need an acrylic side table...and a beautiful chair...and a window flooding my room with light... 


...I have always been a fan of the canopy bed...sigh.  It's one of the first things I purchased after moving into my first "real" apartment...the X benches at the end of the bed...love...I see them every time I visit HomeGoods...and we all know I own enough benches to pull this off.


 Okay...let the design church say, "Amen".  This wall color is very similar to the opps paint I purchased over the weekend...it's grey with a hint of purple...smile.  I want to treat my windows in just the same fashion...the mirror, check, I have one very similar...sigh.  Could I possibly pull this off?  I've gotta get a couple of shinny white pieces...and monogramed pillow cases from Overstock.com .


 ...I now bring you back to my regularly scheduled idea...yeah, I love to think that I could live in a pretty, simple room like the one pictured above this room...in theory, I could...but, in reality...this is more my style...I would get bored in the other room...kinda looks like anyone could live this...just not personal enough for me.  I love stuff, pattern color, texture...pile it on.


 Yes, Yes, Yes...again, bench at the end of the bed...punches of color...lamps on wall...hidden windows...doable, doable, doable...don't even get me started on thinking about painting my floors...I'll do it...you know, I'll do it...and this is just beautiful enough for a trip to HomeDepot.

 ...more color...and ohhh, look at the painted red side table...the fabric upholstered headboard...yes.


and last but not least...the room that almost has it all...dark walls, canopy...pattern on top of pattern, vintage side tables...sigh.

I know, I'm all over the place when it comes to ideas for my bedroom...but, there is a method to my madness...stay tuned.
