Blank slate.... Help me make my bedroom amazing!

October 6, 2013 in Design Dilemma
I am updating each room in my house.. Starting with bedroom. Welcome suggestions from all of you. The room is 13.5 x 11.5. Just painted a slate grey with white trim, with cherry floor. Going to buy new furniture. Thinking of turning bi-fold closet into a desk area. Other closet will be used to store off season clothes. Have turned spare room into closet so really only need for anything but bed and whatever else. Wondering about thoughts on bed placement. Have attached pics... Thanks in advance!

Love the window! I like mixing different finishes so the name of your wall colour grey slate inspired me to go with another metal.....bronze which also reflects a caramel tone. I first chose these curtains and went from there. A white upholstered bed with some light grey bedding will lighten up the room and tie in the white trimming.

This textured wooden dresser adds alot of warmth and this bronze night stand compliments the concept of slate from the wall colour. The lamp adds another element.....mercury. The mirror is grey rattan adding a natural element to the room.

Don't know if there's a ceiling fixture but this one would tie in all the elements previously posted. Some throw pillows with caramel accents and this chair to add some visual interest.

As for furniture placement, I think the bed would look best on this wall with the dresser in front of it and a chair in the corner where the window is. Everything I posted is from Crate and Barrel.

Is that armoire for a TV. Using closet for desk would work. Wallpaper inside using grays. Silvermetallic in furn mirrored for night stands. Go glam. With black crystal chandelier. Bed on biggest wall. Remove armoire if not using. Silver metallic panels on window satin. Floor mirror tall 6 ft in silver frame by other closet. Big cut glass sunburst over bed. 45". Headboard in white velvet, tuffet.

The armoire has a tv.... But was thinking that I could hang tv inside bi- fold closet with simple desk underneath with stool/storage. Love glam...especially a tufted velvet headboard! Rug ideas? Thanks!!!

Amazing how travisinteriors and I suggested two completely different styles! Your bedroom is definitely a blank slate.....lol! The rug I suggested is more mod than glam so here are two that might bring in that design element. These are neutral but they both give out a subtle glam vibe with their texture and pattern. Both from Pottery Barn.

This is such a great tool and group think! Looking now at white, velvet tufted headboards and black crystal anything. Lydia I loved the introduction of mercury.
