:: decor wednesday { the bedroom } ::

For the past two years i have been threatening to redecorate our bedroom, but as you all know, life happens and before you know it two years have pasted! It’s only recently that i have realized it’s been two years, fortunately for the bedroom redo me and the hubby are not going away for the holidays! So…. We will have plenty of time to hang the curtains i bought, repaint the bedroom set and re-upholster the headboard! I might even paint the walls, if i can decide on a colour! But i am looking for ideas for the walls.. not so sure if i should go for shelfs, picture frames or mirrors?

I’m a bit of a romantic when it comes to decorating, so all things gray, white space and a little french is right up my alley! While browsing for new inspirations i came across these lovely rooms! Aren’t they stunning? Maybe they will inspire you to do a little redecorating these holidays!
