I have a file on my computer full of photos of perfect and curious bedrooms that I have been browsing for inspiration since I recently moved.
Before you judge, you should know that I don't have a problem admitting that I watch Gossip Girl. It's for the clothes. And the compelling story lines.
And I loved that blue room.
I like the idea of waking up in a room
that always looks like night.
Hmm, it looks like I have a thing for built-in beds.
I like the idea of sleeping in a cubby hole.
I also love the thought of a sleeping in a bed
that looks older than America.
My room does have vaulted ceilings,
which would almost make this a possibility:
Except that I have too many clothes and don't have the luxury of wasting space on a sofa.
But my room CAN have the look of a giant boudoir.
And maybe I could add a modern chandelier.
I don't need a bunk bed but what if I want to have several friends over for a sleep-over?
Or what if I build a loft? Then I could stick friends up there.
I know clean walls can offer a serene setting but I'm a sucker for visual stimulation.
What if I wallpaper one wall to match my clothes?
I could start with this thick fabric from Michael Levine. I fell madly in love with it. I could paste on the wall, use as a rug, cover my Queen Anne chair and sew a rough dress.
