I'm taking a break from packing. I've got boxes all over the place and my house is just a mess. I just posted some furniture on Craigslist that I'm hoping to sell before we move out of this house on Saturday. We're selling everything in our living room but our TV and ottoman and I hope we can get rid of it. I don't want to have to move it to the storage unit. That would be a pain!

I thought I'd share my inspiration for my new bedroom. We wanted to do a very soothing, calm, hotel type feel. I found these photos on Pinterest and I'm wanting our bedroom to look similar to these.
It's taken a very long time but we've basically completed our bedroom look and have found all of the key pieces we need.

I found this dresser when I was in Little Rock and it was exactly the look I was going for. It's very distressed and creamy-grey which is exactly what I wanted! It's also taller than your normal dresser which I like because we're going to hang our TV over it and I didn't want there to be a huge space between the furniture and the television.
We found our bed at IO Metro. I'm only showing the headboard but it also has foot railings. It's very clean and sleek and we chose a very light creamy/white fabric. It's not white but it's not cream either. Again, a good mix. We're going to do the thing where the bed is folded down like the photos above. We got some plain ol' white sheets from Pottery Barn (I hope they're comfy!!) and a plain white duvet cover from there as well. I haven't found a blanket yet though. I can't decide if I want to do cream or grey and I'm just waiting until we get the bed in to decide. The blanket is important because it's what will show the most. I'm thinking a trip to a Restoration Hardware will be in my near future.
Finally, I found these gorgeous mirrored nightstands at Ethan Allen about 2 months ago. I love the mirrored furniture look and wanted to incorporate into our bedroom in some way. I've seen a lot of mirrored pieces but these nightstands were my favorite. The picture really doesn't do it justice. They're not too mirrory to where your reflection jumps at you and they're done in a brushed silvery type tone. They're beautiful. I splurged on these but I think I'll have them for a very long time. And if I get tired of them I think they would be really pretty in a little girl's room.
I hope everything ties together and looks just as lovely as my head is picturing it. It will be a while before I know though. All of these pieces won't be in until the middle of May so we're just going to have a floating television on our wall and mattresses on the floor for a few weeks!! I ordered all of these pieces a long time ago so I'm surprised they aren't in yet but it's okay. At least we'll have the mattress and our comfy new sheets!
