Right now I'm having my bedroom renovated, and it's made me dream about what I'd love my new bedroom to look like if money were no object. So I went on a little window internet shopping trip for fun and put together this room. Kind of makes me think of Arizona a little, the bright sunshine, the cactus, and diamond shapes. We live in a cute little two bedroom, one study - old cottage, with a few art deco features. My real bedroom is smallish for a master bedroom so this isn't my all time dream bedroom, just the dream bedroom for my current home. It was very fun to dream this up, and we really are using that paint colour in our bedroom! 

I LOVE choosing Duvet / Quilt covers. In my fantasy-land, I'd get to have a new quilt cover every 6 months. HA! They really take centre stage in a bedroom because your bed is the biggest thing in there (duh). I've chosen bedding, a blanket and a rug from Aura Home  because I love Tracie Ellis' unique, eye popping designs, with great colours and shapes. Super cute and make you go WOW!
My friend, Karen, over at Yellow Dandy chose a great quilt cover from Aura Home for the master bedroom in her new home. I love that one too. She's just opened a new shop online, with great interior design ideas for kid's rooms. That girl has taste.

What's your dream bedroom? Have you dared to have one or does it just feel too unrealistic? I know the feeling, even having insulation go into our new walls yesterday felt unreal. But it is happening NOW!

Stay plugged in to PKM for when I get photos of my new bedroom up!

    It reminds me a little of Arizona too :) I just love that yellow and the patterns are gorgeous. I'm also addicted to duvet covers. Argh :)

  2. Maybe we should start a recovery program for people like us @Renee at Mummy, Wife, Me

  3. Love the yellow and grey - such classic colours. I'm a blue girl myself and have been searching everywhere for the perfect cover for my bed.

  4. @Annaleis Topham Thank you! We went for the blue on the wall instead of the bed. Hope you find that perfect cover! ;)

  5. Love the dresser!

    We rent, so we're limited to soft furnishings as a way to stamp our mark on our home. A good doona cover goes a long way! x

  6. I know that feeling with a rental. When I first moved into our OWN home I couldn't wait to put a nail in the wall just 'cause I could! ha! @Clare

  7. It's so much fun dreaming up home decorating. I do this quite regularly - and that's about as far as I get. I do love that colour combination.

  8. I'm scared that that's what I will do. I saw a bed on Domayne's website that I adore and it cost as much as our room did to renovate. Sigh!* @Deb Baker

  9. I do love how the yellow in those bed sheets just "pop"! They would definitely be perfect for a cottage!

  11. I know. My husband and I were laying in bed last night with the iPad dreaming of the ways we could spruce our room up some more. It all came back to the coin :( @stufffromthesuburbs
