Bedroom Envy

After spending last weekend in Las Vegas all I could think about was getting back home and into my own bed! Along with the kitchen, I think the bedroom is one of the most important rooms in the house.  It's the last thing you see before you fall asleep and the first thing you see when you wake up.  It's a very personal space and should make you feel completely relaxed (and insanely comfortable). Although I love my current bedroom, it could definitely use some sprucing up.  The following images provide a great source of inspiration for bedrooms in my future!

You don't need fancy bedding to create a great looking bed.  Simple white linens provide a great backdrop for a brightly colored throw (which can easily be switched out for a completely different look).

I love the ceiling treatment in this bedroom.  It makes sense to do something different on the ceiling since you're always lying in bed looking up!

This room screams beach house. It's bright colors and natural textures make it a perfect space connected to the outdoors. If you have tall ceilings, why not hang a woven egg chair?

The bedding in this room is so vibrant and colorful - it is a welcome surprise in the bedroom.

I love the neutral color palette in this room.  It is more soothing than the other rooms and welcomes you for a great night sleep.

If you like blue than this room should appeal to you. When using such bold prints it's smart to keep the area rug simple and neutral as they did here.  (I'm not sure about the off-center painting above the bed - maybe I didn't get the memo?).

I've always liked the idea of creating a headboard that is pushed away from the wall and used as a partition itself.  It can divide the space and be used as storage on the backside, housing drawers for clothing, etc.

This is a great example of how a headboard can become an art piece within the space.  Upholstered headboards are fairly reasonable to fabricate so why not get creative with it's shape?
