Ok, so I’ve showed you my completed closet (really, is anything ever really complete?), my hallways, one of my guest bedrooms. So now I’ll show you my bedroom, and of course I am showing you this so you can laugh at me:
Yes, it’s true. I have 2 fully furnished guest bedrooms but no furniture in the master bedroom. How did this happen? Well, in one guest bedroom is Jeff’s old queen-sized bed that we put here when we decided we wanted a king-sized bed for ourselves. And in the second guest bedroom is the furniture that we got for a great deal at Storehouse when they were going out of business (will show you that bedroom later). I would love to have put it in the master bedroom but again, it’s queen-sized.
When we decided to move Jeff’s old bed into the guest room, we went ahead and purchased the king-size mattress. Didn’t get box springs because we figured we might get a platform bed.
And we did go shopping for master bedroom furniture. Just couldn’t settle on anything. Since I didn’t have a dresser, the closet became a big priority – I had to have somewhere to put all of my clothes! And the more time has gone on, the less of a priority finding bedroom furniture has become … but I promise, it is on the agenda at some point!
The duvet cover you see is actually Colleen’s. She brought it over temporarily during a party since we had 2 comforters but 3 beds. It seems silly to purchase a duvet for a bed that I don’t know what it will look like yet. I tried that already with the duvet that ended up on this bed.
The mirror is from IKEA and I absolutely love it. I would like to get two more for the guest bedrooms, too. It’s huge and reminds me of a dressing room at a clothing store.
So, as you see, the house is nowhere near complete … suggestions for the perfect furniture, anyone? It has to be the right blend of modern and contemporary. Not too Jetsons but nothing too traditional either. I thought about doing something really crazy and instead of dressers getting some kick-ass bookshelves like these and these (check out the last two images on that last one for what I’m thinking – and not in mahogany) for sweaters and such – turn the room into something truly unique. But as I sit here trying to think of ways to make it kick-ass, it stays like this …
So, give me ideas!
