Decorate My Bedroom


Well-known member
I'm in the process of moving and I'm replacing my bed and pretty much all of the rest of my bedroom furniture because it's all bulky and not nice at all.

SO - I've been looking at new beds - headboards in particular...and I'm at a loss! I love wood, but everything out of wood is so cold and masculine. I'm really looking for something girlier. I like some of the metal ones, but most look like grandma's house.

I would like to start with the bed and then pick the rest of the pieces based on that.

So here is the question. If you were to buy a new bed for yourself, what bed would you choose?

And no ikea for the bed - too 'generic' looking. I'll probably get other pieces from ikea, but I'd like a more original bed.

Price is no limit, as I'm looking for ideas right now.

I have a king-size cherry sleigh bed. It is similar to the one posted by melozburngr except that I selected a low footboard; I tend to push/kick things to the bottom of the bed, so I didn't want the high footboard and I was concerned that it would make the bed too large visually in the room (and make the room seem smaller).

Do you like the "shabby chic" wood look at all? I have found tons of cute ones in that style.

btw, those ^ all come in different finishes so they have a list of around 15 color choices.
