As with any project, there is some thing or item that I take inspiration from whether it be a painting, wall color, collectors item, or even an adjective that describes the room’s feeling.
In our master bedroom, there were a couple starting points for me. I had an Indian inspired textile that I knew and loved and have been waiting to use. (I have always been a textile junkie). From there, I got an idea for the color scheme – white/putty/various blues and black. I love a good green in the bedroom too, and I plan to perhaps add a pop of kelly green down the road.
While reading Katie Ridder’s new book, Rooms, I fell in love with the bedside table she created in her own bedroom. (below)
The hardware is just gorgeous, and it was a found piece. I thought something like this could complement my own room scheme nicely, so the hunt began online. After much searching and giving up on finding such a “found” piece, I looked to Anthropologie just to see….and this is what I found!
Pretty darn similar in character to the inspiration photo. I did a quick scan of all my go to places for bedroom furniture, and then found these at West Elm.
Certainly they don’t have the depth of the inspiration photo, but they have clean simple lines that allow the hardware to stand out, and most of all they fit the dimensions I needed.
Here are the nightstands in the room now, and I am really pleased with how they turned out. (you can see my giant paisley drapery fabric in the background)
There is still so much more to do as you can see from this picture:
But our mattress was delivered (our custom bed is on order too)the day we took this, which is a good thing because my back was starting to ache from sleeping on this:
And btw, this is actually how it was when we were sleeping on it! We got a hole in the mattress the second day of sleeping on it, so it only stayed ever so slightly inflated!
