I've been brainstorming ideas for how I want to redecorate, so I'll share them here. All of this project will be funded by our tax refund, yay! However, I'm definitely struggling with the inspiration.. I know a few individual pieces that I want, but scouring the internet is not helping me find many photos to inspire me. I'm not even sure how to describe what I want! I did find this picture:
First up, I know I definitely am getting the Ikea Hemnes 8-drawer dresser:
The piece I'm struggling the most with is the bed. I know what I want - an iron / metal bed. They're the only ones that truly "call my name", and the price for them is usually very reasonable. But I'm having a hard time finding a balance between masculine & feminine. All of the ones I find seem to lean either way, not really in the middle. Everything else I'm going for is very masculine and dark,so I don't want a really boxy bed with straight lines, you know? but I feel if I go too feminine, it will cheapen the overall look and make it look juvenile. Not good. Though I think I've found a winner:

As for bedding... Originally I loved a herringbone-stitched gray quilt from West Elm, but it's clearanced out now. I haven't found something I love for a good price. I'm thinking I'll go with this, from Amazon, because it's silver/gray and has the texture I want. My only concern is if it's too "satin" looking, and therefore cheap-looking.

Well, I think that's enough "inspiration" aka brainstorming for now. Oh it's going to be an early morning, should've been sleeping instead of writing this! Oh well!
