The Bed Is HERE!!


(The Before)

The new bed arrived yesterday and it gets to stay!! It looks just like I  envisioned. I am so pleased with it. 

The new mattress was amazingly comfortable. We did not even have to adjust to the feel of it. I love having the extra sleeping space, and so does my hubby.

(The During)

I knew that I would have to do a bit of tweaking to my room once the bed was placed. 

It has a darker framework  than my previous headboard, which was cream. The room is no longer  all cream, white and blue.

With the touch of mushroom colored wood  I might need to add a basket that will carry the color of the wood to the other side of the room. 

 Possibly on top of the armoire. Although I hate to replace the pretty sea-glass bottles. We shall see?!!

Since the bed is an upholstered frame, and is larger in scale, the bedside lamps need to be a larger silhouette. 

The mirrors above the nightstands also need to be taller. 

 I am not sure I will still have the mirrors above the nightstands, but I do love the open look it gives the room. This option is still being debated in my mind.

As far as the bedding I am quite pleased with an all white look. 

I will still be tweaking the pillow situation. After much thought, and looking I have decided on two large pillows in the back, two standards in front, and an extra long lumbar in front with possibly a monogram.

I love the new look and I have already pinned some inspirational images that will help me decide the direction I would like to go.

Come back for my next post, and I will share the images that are inspiring me.

For now I will just enjoy my new bed, and dream of the changes to come……
