I'm Ready For Our New Bed

Pretty direct and to the point blog title, huh? I think I told you guys a couple of weeks ago that we ordered a new custom upholstered bed.

It is very similar to the ever-so-popular Crate and Barrel Colette bed and I can't wait til our version arrives in 5 or so weeks!

Our bedroom is undergoing a slow metamorphosis, which is unlike me, since I like getting stuff done pretty fast. I appreciate anyone that has the patience and foresight to take their time designing rooms. I am starting to learn that skill, I think!

Once the bed gets here I am going to change our bedding. I have never been afraid of styling pillows but lately I have been stuck. I don't know what new bedding I want and I couldn't think of a pillow set-up that I was in love with.

Well, enter this recent edition of House Beautiful:

As I was perusing this little favorite of mine an advertisement for Oly jumped out at me.

The bed above has exactly the feel I want for our new bed. The pillow set-up is perfection to me. I am now currently on the hunt for fabrics/or bedding that I love to make/have the euro shams and standard shams.

I already have a bolster pillow waiting to have its cover sewn from this unexpected fabric find from an Old Navy sarong.

So those are the most recent decor thoughts in my mind. Things have slowed down just a little on our homefront, but just as soon as I think that, something gets me inspired again!

Have a happy weekend, friends! I cannot believe it's the final weekend of summer. Thankfully it's going out with a bang on Sunday because me and my mom are going to see Taylor Swift in concert! Woohoo--I'm very excited!

Oh, you should check out the Look Book for the Missoni collection for Target. Not sure it will match with the neutrals you are currently going for, but they did have a couple of very cute bedding items.

Ooooh can't wait to see it! Good luck in your bedding search. It took us months to find ours, but the wait was definitely worth it! :)

Hi Joi! I've followed your blog (silently, haha) for a while now. But I just wanted to see if you've seen the latest September cover of Country Living Magazine!?? They totally put ceiling medallions all over the walls similar to what you did a long time ago :) Thought you'd wanna see it, if you haven't already. Keep up the awesome work. I love seeing what you do with your home.

Oooh, I am so excited about this Joi. It sounds like it's gonna be a relaxing retreat.

Have you seen these upholstered beds? I'm so amazed at how much cheaper they are than C & B (plus made in US). Also, pretty sure these are beds sold as Nate Berkus by HSN.

I get stuck on pillows! Mostly because I know what I want I just don't want to pay the big bucks for it. =)
I can't wait to see what you do with your new bedroom! I know it will be fab!

{ps~ I so appreciate your sweet comment today}

Hugs!

What is the name of the new bed you purchased? I looked on the Phillips Furniture website and it isn't listed. Thanks Joi!
