For some background, this was our king bed and Ikea 3 drawer dressers used as night tables when we first painted the room. I loved the bed frame but at the time dreaded painting it when I tired of the blue. We have since sold both Ikea dressers and the headboard/footboard.
This is the brown leather headboard I have now (a bit lighter) and I want to work with this and keep the Benjamin Moore Norwester Tan walls.
This photo shows the new blinds, the freshly painted trim (BM Cotton Balls) and the wall colour we are keeping. I would like to keep the drop cloth curtains too. (The drop leaf table sold and the chair is temporary.)
I want to paint and possibly re-stain the tops of these smaller solid pine night tables and matching 9 drawer long dresser we are currently using. I know it is not everyone's style, but I really like solid pine pieces. To me pine feels rustic, warm, solid and dependable. Sort of like my hubby ;-) But I know the dressers need some updating with paint and new hardware and this is my dilemma.
This is the sort of colour inspiration and the feel I want for our bedroom retreat. I am always drawn to colours that reflect my favourite outfit, denim jeans, white top and brown leather.
- brown leather headboard
- BM Norwester Tan walls and BM Cotton Balls white trim
- drop cloth curtains and maybe some drop cloth pillows
- white linens
- denim bedskirt or I could sew a white or off white one
- ecru matelasse bedspread for now
- black in the rods, and I love having black in every room
But I am also liking the more popular distressed white with wood tops.
