My NEW Bedroom in Progress.....

Here's a peek at my bedroom, we bought the two side tables (slash nightstands) at West Elm. These were the tallest I found that would be just as high as my bed is! I love them! The headboard & the faux fur throw are also from West Elm. I have lots more to decorate and am thinking of a piece of ART over the bed...hmmmm.  

ALSO, I SERIOUSLY need new king size bedsheets and duvet, can you tell?!?!?

What do you have HANGING over your bed?

  2. I had to search FOREVER for a king size something that would fit our bed. It's so hard to make a decision too!

  3. I have a 3' x 4' piece of abstract art hanging over my bed. It's the only thing I could find that would fill the gap between my headboard and 18' vaulted ceilings!

  4. Oh it looks fabulous! I love the serious contrast of the lamps.

  5. I have nothing over my bed right now. I am considering wallpapering just the wall behind my bed. My bedroom is more traditional, but I love, love, love what you have done so far.

  8. DESERT DOMICILLE: Ah, nice high ceilings! My ceilings are 10 feet. I'm thinking of something abstract behind the bed too!

  9. We have a fabulous chandelier hanging over our bed.


    It's from Horchow and on fabulous sale right now (but we have enjoyed it for three years so I can't be too bitter.)

    it is art deco and matches our inset paneled doors (we live in a 1929 Storybook Tudor)

    Good luck with your makeover - I love your blog!

  13. My headboard looks like yours right now---but we are going to hang 5 small photographs of staircases that we have. I finally unveiled our nursery on www.flaroom.blogspot.com

  14. I am loving that bed! Beautiful. I can't wait to see it all done. We have an off-centered window behind our bed, so I centered/faked it with a wall of curtains. I love the idea of an abstract peice of art.

  15. Your bedroom is coming along so beautiful:) Over my bed just four framed postcards from my travels. In my apartment overseas (which I just finished decorating) a starburst mirror.

  16. Love the black lamps--so chic!

    And, your comment on my blog re: short curtains cracked me up. I will definitely be going against the popular opinion if I do it :)

  18. Love the black lamps :)

  19. Looking great honey! Goodluck with the sheets, I know how hard this task can be... our bed is a European King (which is bigger than a nornal king!) making it almost impossible to find! x

  21. Love the dark lamps on these night stands! And what is above my bed? The headboard reaching to the ceiling! Eliminates the need for anything else...Janell

  22. did you say art?

    affordable and happy art :)

  23. I just had to leave a comment on this one because the answer is your ABC Love poster! :)

    ReplyDelete
  24. "In progress"...I so know how that feels. I purchased my home 7 years ago, and I've been "in progress" ever since. But, I'm not complaining...because I truly love the process. Your pieces are perfect. Thanks for sharing and keep them coming.

  25. Love it! I actually have one of your LOVE posters over my bed:) Someday when Im happily married I want to have the "you have my whole heart for my whole life" sign.

    ReplyDelete
  26. I have a headboard that is just about the same size and style as yours, and I have no idea what to hang above it! I'd love to see what you choose and maybe it will give me ideas too :)

  27. Wow, I just love your style. You should check out Zara Home for affordable and good quality bed linen and covers. I have some and they are gorgeous and long-lasting!

    Enjoy decorating your new home!

  28. My bed head is the same as yours but black. I made a painting/sculpture thing especially for the wall above my bed. It is a long narrow canvas I painted grey & yellow then stenciled a couple of white bird silhouettes. I then took an old dry piece of twisted willow I had lying around the house & spray painted it white & hot glued it to the canvas.

  29. EMK: thanks for the link, I'll take a look!

  30. EMILY A. CLARK: Hey...not everyone is going to agree with your taste...but at the end of the day , it is YOUR home... :))))

  31. TIED WITH A BOUW: Aww thanks. :)
    WOW, i never even heard of that size bed...its hard enough getting stuff for kING, i cant even imagine any bigger!

    ReplyDelete
  32. URBAN STYLE VIBES: I will have to look at ZARA home..for some reason i never think about it.....

    ReplyDelete
  33. I don't have anything hanging over mine at the moment, but I used to have a huge canvas of Monument Valley.

    P.S. I love taht luxe throw on your bed!

    ReplyDelete
  34. I suggest a small golden sun mirror instead a piece of art. This kind of mirror you can check out on my recently post "Inspiration in Pink". It is a piece that contrasts and makes your room more sofisticated.
    I agree with URBAN STYLE VIBES! Zara Home is fantastic to find bed covers. Mine cover and other many things at my home are from Zara H., I love it
    Hope it can help you...

    xxxooo

  35. Lamps look great-very dramatic! I have a huge mirror over my headboard. Our room is small so mirrors are needed!

    ReplyDelete
  36. I love the head of the horse next to your bedside.. and the fourrure looks so comfortable!!

    ReplyDelete
  37. We don't have anything hanging over our bed because I purposely made our headboard a really tall statement piece.

    ReplyDelete
  38. I have a small painting above my bed. It's pretty simple, but that's the way I like it.

    Great progress, by the way! xoxo

    ReplyDelete
  39. just hung our "for like ever" poster and it fits the room perfectly

    ReplyDelete
  40. I have to get me a faux fur blankie! I love the look! I will have to visit West Elm soon! Thanks for sharing!

    ReplyDelete
  41. I'm a big chess player so I love the horsey! The end tables are so simple & lovely!! I don't know yet what I'm going to hanging over my bed. Can't wait to see what you choose!

    ReplyDelete
  42. I have black and white photos my friend took of my (then fiance - now hubby) and me. Would love to wallpaper and add a mirror, but living in a rental I may have to settle for stenciling the wall.

    I am loving what you are doing with your new place!
    BTW: Finally framed the "blog" print I ordered in May, its hanging in its temporary home. Will write a post about it next week!

    ReplyDelete
  43. Looking really good. The contrast is working. I have two vintage paint-by-numbers over my bed.

    ReplyDelete
  44. I have nothing on the walls right behind... Have Canvas paintings hanging above the side tables (In earthquake zone... don't want anything falling over me .. if it strikes at night)

    ReplyDelete
  45. I hung a small painting above my bed. I found it already framed and matted in a consignment shop for $5. Steal. I have a four poster bed so I don't have that much room. It worked out perfect.

    Good luck with your room!

    ReplyDelete
  46. I too am still looking for the perfect thing...i think some art. Haven't found it yet. My bed is very similar to yours so if you find some good ideas pass them my way!

    ReplyDelete
  47. Ooh! Very pretty!.
    Some art would sure liven it up! I don't have anything over my bed now... but I don't have any art hanging ANYWHERE right now! Trying to wait until we're further along in the reno to hang it all!

    ReplyDelete
  48. PURVI: Ha! Trust me i thought of the whole earthquake piece, so i probably wouldn't want to put glass. I figure it a canvas falls on you, you may just get a concussion.

    ReplyDelete
  49. BARBARA: Sounds good...! Let me know when i can see it hanging via your blog! :))

  50. We have a vintage sun mirror hanging on the wall, near our bed.
    My Love pillows have arrived and a nate pillow too. I took pictures yesterday and I will write a post very soon.
    Love your bedroom!

  51. I am hanging black birds above my bed (similar to my post on the butterflies). I found them at Target. I'll post a picture once they are up. Your bedroom looks great!

  52. We have a DIY headboard and a fabulous chandelier hanging over our bed.

    ReplyDelete
  53. Looks good Jen...I have Van Gogh's 'La Chambre de l'Artiste' above my bed...his bedroom at Arles...I thought it was appropriate...and I'm hoping to add some more orange to the room because Van Gogh's bed is orange too..:))

  54. I had " The Reverend Robert Walker Skating on Duddingston Loch " (better known as "The Skating Minister " ) - quite quirky- - a copy painted by myself of an oil painting by Sir Henry Raeburn hanging - but I am now changing thimgs around.

  56. MODERN COUNTRY LADY- 'The skating minister' art is gorgeous work! :)))) Love it.

    ReplyDelete
  57. Love what you've got so far... I have a similar headboard and have just hung 3 framed prints {vintage printables make for an easy change}.

    ReplyDelete
  58. Hi Jen, I'm facing major dilemma with my bedroom. I bough my bed (and headboard) in fake white leather that proved to be not so white when my other furniture arrived. I think the difference in whites doesn't look good... but then I see your bed is not as white as your nightstands either... what do you think? please see photos here: http://www.flickr.com/photos/inesaop/5135738520/in/photostream/.

    I love my bedside tables but I think I'll have to reupholster the headboard in light silver or something to make it work (?)

    ReplyDelete
  59. Oh wow, love that fur throw. Hey, thanks for stopping by loft&cottage! And if you are looking for the mercury lamps with black lampshades--I actually used some similar ones to the ones pictured for a client at http://www.homedecorators.com/P/Mercury_Table_Lamp/450/. Great price and they're even prettier in person!

    ReplyDelete
  60. CASEY: thanks - it so soooo comfy too!
    I will check out that lamp..I love that color combo, black & silver..looks so glam :)))

    ReplyDelete
  61. I have a round mirror hanging over my bed!

    ReplyDelete
  62. I have the same problem with West Elm ... everything is so short and I'm a tall bed girl. :) I have a photograph of the NY skyline pre 9/11 that I bought from a street vendor outside the MET.
