My bedroom is mind-numbingly boring. I can't wait to get started on it eventually. I want to hang my Moroccan wedding blanket on a wall somewhere in there (maybe across from the bed this time instead of as a headboard) and have a shelf with all of my nature/wunderkammer-ish knick knacks I currently house on my living room mantel. And I want it to be very serene. I was searching through my photo stash looking for inspiration, and I quickly realized that I do not want white walls or anything close to white (wow there alot of white-walled bedrooms out there....WHY?!). I think ideally I would like either dark brown or a medium grey-ish colour. We shall see. I have a bunch of Farrow & Ball paint samples to try out. Here are bedrooms I found that really work for me.

Black and white is such a great starting point for a home. In this case it is white walls and BEAUTIFUL glossy black hardwood. (Gawd how I would love floors like that. DAMN CATS!) Here the owners added lots of colour and kid friendly furnishings to make it energizing and fun. Take out all the colour and add lots of wood, grey and brown and you've got another totally different vibe against the black and white. Easy peasy. Via Hus & Hem.
