Sleepy Bedroom Inspiration

While I am busy getting the nursery done up for the arrival of our little friend in March, thoughts have turned to our bedroom. It really needs a revamp and for what better reason than to create a peaceful space to catch every little wink we can next year. I have always wanted a white room somewhere in the house and our room is a little small and can be quite dark but has lovely high wooden panel ceilings and wooden floors, both of which I will paint white, our furniture is dark wood (which I am tempted to sand and paint but think I will be pushing it) and I want to cover the bed in beautiful linens and a chest of drawers in collections of glass bottles and mirrors, sort of pretty and boudoir-ish. You can see the ocean from our window so I think the white will invite the view in more with the colours of the sea mimicked in the linens and throws with a bit of soft pink or lavender thrown in for contrast. Here are some pretty pictures that have given me some inspiration...

I wish I has these windows! These textiles are aussie designed -  http://www.aurahome.com.au

These are the sort of colours I has in mind - white walls, our furniture is dark wood, and soft dusty blues, teals and sea turquoise....

I love Laura Ashwells shabby chic bedrooms, all white with soft pink, blue and lavender textiles strewn about messily so you get a delicious contrast of texture and colour on a bed that you just want to jump onto. I'm not a fan of hospital corners...

Love the frechy- boudoiresque feel of this room with the little glass bottles, the details on the walls and luxury linens that touch the floor...
