Guest Picks: Blissful Bedroom
I've been a longtime lover of four-poster and canopy beds. This rustic one is on my wish list. I feel so safe and cozy sleeping with a frame around me.
Declare whose side of the bed is whose with these cool zinc letters.
I get overwhelmed by too much color, but these pillows bring in some brightness in all the right ways. I would layer these on my white bed.
I avoided the all-white bed trend floating around the blogosphere for a while because I was worried about how dirty the linens would get. But after giving in a few weeks ago, I can honestly say that an all-white bed is best. Plus, it makes a great base so that I can bring in accent colors that won't overwhelm the room.
I don't live in the mountains or near any kind of moose population, but this print makes me want to.
Whether used for reading or for putting on shoes, a comfy and cute chair in the bedroom is useful.
Soft throws are for cuddling up in a reading chair with a good book or magazine.
Store those throws you have lying around, as well as any other bedroom linens, in a wicker basket. Clutter does not make for a serene space.
I'm a girl who likes tchotchkes as well as order. A beautiful but functional wall shelving unit is like a dream come true for the two opposing sides of my personality.
All you need is love — and also a cool pillow with the word "love" on it.
I never realized how necessary a full-length mirror was until I didn't have one. I love the thick wood frame on this one.
I absolutely love to bring greenery into my bedroom, but cut flowers can be pricey. I love the whimsical nature of this vintage test tube set and the fact that I can bring in little (and free) snips of plants from around my house.
My jewelry is seriously hard to manage sometimes, and it always ends up in an ugly tangled mess. I'd love something like this to organize it.
I'm not sure I could fall asleep without being surrounded by pictures of my loved ones. I love the imperfect quality of this wooden frame; it makes the photo even more special.
I like to make my bedroom smell like a spa or a fancy hotel with candles. Candlelight is also the most flattering light. Wink, wink.
I miss the days of real alarm clocks, but I also like to have my phone nearby. This genius wooden alarm clock/phone charger is the best of both worlds.
I'll take any opportunity to bring a little luck and fortune into my life. I also love the pops of color these prosperity hens bring to a room.
The bedside lighting situation has always flustered me. I'm starting to think that a cool hanging fixture like one of these jar lights is the way to go.
I've been wanting to keep a dream journal forever, and I'm starting to think that the only way I will actually do it is if I have a cool leather journal that I don't mind keeping out all the time.
I've recently become a fan of cute wall calendars. I'd love to have this one in my room to keep me on track.Next: How to Lay Out a Master Bedroom for Serenity
