bedroom decor.

Living in this small apartment with no extra money for decorating, leaves me mentally designing my dream future home :) Currently, our bedroom has off-white walls, brown furniture, and a reversible comforter with solid colors on both sides (tan and light blue). BOR-RING. I spiced it up a bit by painting this quote above our headboard:

JD and I registered for a gray bedspread, navy blue sheets, and a super cute monogrammed toss pillow from BB&B:
Still rather, boring, I know! We are not into intricate patterns or crazy colors (although the accent color in my kitchen is lime green...), but I'd like to add a little more detail to our future bedroom. First, I need to pick a 3rd color. I'm thinking yellow or another shade of blue (teal, robin's egg, royal?).

I snagged these pics from decorpad for inspiration :)

Interesting backdrop. And I love the yellow side tables!

I don't know how I feel about walls that dark, but I love the hanging lights.

Love, love, love the headboard and footboard.

This was actually labeled "older boy's room" on decorpad. I chose it because I like the little reading area and the blinds. If I haven't said it before, I have a thing for stripes.

This one is a little more whimsical looking....lots of natural light, softer colors, modern furniture.

I love the black-and-white & yellow-and-gray combos going on here. The zebra rug is a yes for me, but probably no for JD. The subtle pattern on the wall looks interesting, too.

As you can see, my style includes:
clean lines
solid colors
patterns only in moderation
classic or modern furniture (Weird that I can love both?)

Up next, my plans for our violet and lilac bathroom!

I love the blue and yellow toether! It all looks really good... I've got my dream room picked out for when my man and I finally get our house but I know he's going to say no.. I'll just sneak things in and say they were a gift? Haha.
