Some Bedroom Lovin'

Like many people, we waited way too long to decorate our master bedroom. It was terrible when we first bought our place, (check out what we're talking about here), and we fixed it up just enough to live with it until we figured out what we really wanted to do. I went back and forth for so long about what I wanted our bedroom to look like. We love the beach and spend our vacations in Hawaii, so I definitely love rooms with a beachy feel, but I also love a touch of sparkle. Hmm, some sparkle and some beach . . . is it possible?

I found inspiration in photos like this. Not so much beachy, but definitely on my "Glam Radar".  I love chandeliers and think that every room should have one.


I'm loving the mirrors on each side of the bed in this photo. I often find myself drawn to black and white decor, so this image really appeals to me, though putting shelves over our bed would be a death wish, since we live in California, The Land of Earthquakes.


I love the clean lines of this gallery wall. And obviously, I'm a sucker for that chandelier as well.


And really, who doesn't need an extra dash of sparkle? This pillow is driving me crazy!


So, you can definitely see which way our master bedroom is leaning. I'm so happy with the way it has come together.

Our "Beachy Glam" bedroom is anxiously awaiting it's reveal.

How did you decide your bedroom's decor? Did it all fall into place? Or was it more calculated?

  1. The master bedroom tends to get neglected, doesn't it. Your inspiration photos are all beautiful and elegant.

  2. I think your beachy-glam bedroom is going to be beautiful! I can't wait. There's a lot of inspiration in these photos. . . My bedroom is very 'zen'. . . lots of Asian and Buddhist inspired pieces. I let my husband help in the decorating process and that's just how it turned out. I really do love it though, it's a very calm and relaxing spot in my house, just the peaceful retreat I need!
