Vintage Modern Bedroom Idea Board
Hello, happy Friday! I’ve been thinking hard about ideas for the very-much-in-the-future bedroom revamp and I wanted to share them with you. I need to do these weird exercises in design and inspiration so that I can stay focused on the prize. The sunroom (is essentially part of our bedroom) which you may remember was overhauled this spring. I totally love it now and we use the space all the time. However because the sunroom is looking all foxy and babelicious its making the bedroom look lame and boring. Something must be done.

The Sunroom
I am totally in love with the navy sofa and coral combo that I used in the sunroom, and would like to continue that idea in the bedroom – just in more subtle ways, emphasizing on neutral whites and grays. As always I love a nice marriage of modern pieces and vintage favorites, and have plans of accessorizing in rose golds and brass accents.

I have always adored wallpaper and it’s something I’ve always wanted to add to our bedroom. Wallpaper hasn’t happened yet because I haven’t stumbled upon the perfect pattern or had the perfect plan to have the balls to buy and install something. I’m getting there though :) In the past, we have wallpapered the vestibule and the music room. I really love having those bold patterns throughout the house and would like to continue patterning it up in our bedroom. I saw this very feminine and floral paper from Hygge & West a few weeks ago and I have been thinking about it ever since. I don’t know if it will stay stuck in my brain as I continue on throughout the process but for now I really like the idea of it. I’ll have to convince Jeff that he likes it too – could be the hardest part of this whole reno.

What about having a real bed you guys? I told you earlier this week that our mattress currently rests on a broken bed frame and a pile of old books – so it’s time. I don’t have a specific bed in mind just yet, but I think we’d like to have something upholstered with legs as opposed to upholstered with no space underneath – I have no idea what the technical bed designers term for this is. Anyway, a real deal bed would be tyte.

We already have the black and white rug (from RugsUSA) and I’d like to have it stay in the bedroom. Check that off the list!

Okay, okay, so I’m still kind of obsessed with the functionality of the fauxdenza. We don’t have a library space or anything in our house, but we have a lot of books and have been keeping them all in our bedroom. Maybe that will change a bit as we have big plans of remodeling the basement over spring of 2015. For now though, we are in need of practical storage in the bedroom that doesn’t take up a lot of visual space. I’m actually thinking about installing a wrap-around-fauxdenza. Maybe overboard? I dunno. Would that would be to much ‘denza in one space? I am really liking the idea for now – we’ll see if it stays as time moves forward.

So that’s it in a nutshell. Here’s a sweet list of all the items shown above.

    Do you read manhattan nest? Theres a savings code for hygge and west for 20% off wallpaper…


    • Scoops July 29, 2014

      Hey Heather! I love Manhattan Nest. I saw the 20% off code, but I just don’t know if it’s time yet. Hopefully I can find such a good deal when it is.

    • Scoops July 29, 2014

      Hey Heather! I do read manhattan nest, it’s one of my favs. I saw that sweet deal, but I just don’t know if it’s time to pull the trigger on wallpaper yet. Hopefully when that day comes I can find a super good deal like that.

  • I love the look of this! I am trying to come up with a cohesive look for my bedroom as well, and my vision is actually pretty close to what you’ve chosen here. It’s harder than it seems! I am thinking I might do faux wainscoting and just wallpaper the top half of the room. I’m leaning towards the Rory bed from Crate and Barrel (http://www.crateandbarrel.com/rory-white-queen-bed/s659478?a=1552) because it can look classic while also blending in with some of my MCM pieces.

      Hey Staci! I totally love that bed too. You should go for it, I think it’s super cute. My husband is a huge giant, his feet go a good 6″ off the end of the bed, so I need to find something with a low profile footboard. I’m excited to see what you do in your bedroom!

    Here is another upholstered platform bed with legs that I have and love:

    • Scoops July 29, 2014

      Oh, thanks Kim! I didn’t even to think of adding bludot to my list of places to look. I’ll def check out everything they have on their site, and that reminds me, Gus Modern too!

  • Jessica July 28, 2014

    Wow that wallpaper! Those blooms are metallic copper! I might be a bit obsessed now. I bet if you order the $5 sample you’ll have an easier time with the convincing, since I imagine it’s even better in person! Good luck, it’s a beautiful grouping you’ve got there!

    • Scoops July 29, 2014

      I know, Jessica! Isn’t that copper so good! I love the blue and light coral too. I already have a $5 sample, he hasn’t said anything since I hung it up on the wall. It’s very possible he hasn’t seen it, or he has and he hates it.

    “Foxy and babelicious”
    Just thought it was worth noting.

  • shavonda July 29, 2014

    Lovin the direction youre headed with the room. Its going to look awesome:)

    • Scoops August 18, 2014

      Thanks, Shavonda! I think so too :)

    I can definitely see how a neutral bed is a wise choice… but if you wanted to really go for the gusto, might I suggest this brass nailhead headboard in the navy blue velvet? It is a custom option that I myself have and LOVE. Some other advantages to just getting a headboard- cheaper of course, and, deals with the tall husband issue since there isn’t a footboard.


    That said, there is a sleekness / clean look to beds like the one you posted that you just don’t get with a headboard + metal frame combo!

    • Scoops August 18, 2014

      Hey Sarge! I love the idea of a navy headboard – the brass nail heads are really great. The only thing I worry about with the navy is being too matchy with navy sofa in the sunroom, I feel like the furniture would need to be different yet complimentary upholstery. I am open to just a headboard, but part of me just really wants a grown up bed, I’ve never really had one.

      Thanks so much for your suggestion, that navy headboard would be really pretty.
