OK, I said “our” bed room plans when Charlie’s only plan is to sleep. My plan, on the other hand, is to decorate after the reno. The walls are now a pale creamy yellow but the two of us have agreed on a new color for the walls: Virtuoso by Glidden.
Inspiration for the room comes in part from the photo below.
We’re hoping to have French doors to a newly-built second story porch where we can have morning coffee at our Bistro Set .
The partially finished mood board is below.
We already have a king-size French sleigh bed made by Grange. It appears to be cherry.
We inherited marble- topped inlaid French bombe chests for bedside tables.
Each drawer has a bow detail.
The corners under the marble are cut metalwork.
Another inspiration photo is this sleigh bed with a wall of books surrounding the window.
I must decide whether to put shelves on the new French door wall or on the exisiting window wall. It’s definitely a decision I can put off until later.
We’re also planning to use the following 2 chests of drawers. Charlie’s dresser we plan to refinish.
Mine I’m going to paint.
I’m going to try to make my chest of drawers the color of the desk below with a black faux-marbre top.
Over our bed I’d love to have a map of Paris like the one in the photo below. I’m hoping to print a copy from Pigtown Design.
We have a pair of Limoges lamps which need new barrel-shaped shades. I’d like to use these on the side tables.
The furniture placement will probably be limited by the size of the room and door placement. When the architect gets back to me with some ideas I can better address this issue. My preference would be the headboard of the bed on an inside wall looking out over the treetops. Two chairs or a small sofa in the bedroom would be terrific. And maybe we’ll use the dining room rug in the bedroom for a change and put the current bedroom rug in the new conservatory.
Finally, here’s the tentative floor plan.
The plan above may seem upside down but the bed would actually face the back of the house. O, so many plans! Have you got any plans? Short term or long term?
