Bedroom Inspirations | 4 | Simple and White

As far back as I can remember, okay maybe after I was over my wicker-canopy bedroom set dream, I have loved the look of a clean white bedroom with a big fluffy white bed as the center piece. If it weren't for my grubby little children (no offense my sweet grubby ones) I would hands down go for this look. A lovely, breezy and unencumbered space free from clutter seems like the perfect little sanctuary for slumber. It's timeless, it's low maintenance and so inviting.

Yesterday I took another load of items from my house and afterwards instead of basking in my accomplishments I found myself taping up paint chips to my bedroom wall. It appears I may have a problem. Minutes after I taped up my chips I came down stairs to find I had missed a phone call. It was a guy from my local paint store letting me know that they were having a 40% off sale on paints starting tomorrow "in case I had any more painting projects." You know it boyfriend. I told Fisher and he said, "you have a painting addiction." I say it was a magical coincidence. Now if I can just choose a color before the sale ends. I have found from my last most recent painting projects (my hallways and living room) white paint is the most difficult color to choose and I am planning on going for some sort of a muted white in my room. Right now my  bedroom walls are avocado green. I chose that color when I was pregnant with M&L and I blame it on the pregnancy hormones, all the colors I chose at that time were named after food. Not that it's not a decent color but it's not a great one for an already dark bedroom. Now if I could just have some of the architectural elements that some of these rooms have. Sigh . . .

  1. A white bedroom is so elegant! The last one is in my inspiration file too.

  2. I needn't tell you these bedrooms are all my dream bedroom, right? Right. I too would looove all white bedroom but alas, black shedding dog. I'd be vacuuming more than snuggling up in a big fluffy bed, unfortunately. If your paint store carries Behr, check out "Polished." It's the white we went with in the guest room, and it's the palest shade of gray with no blue or green undertones. It's mostly white, but just a hint darker. I love it. I'm ready to paint the rest of my house in that shade! xoxo

  3. I have to realise that the more simple my bedroom the easiest I fall asleep!

  5. I too have dreams of an all-white boudoir but even without children, it doesn't look as white and fluffy as your inviting pictures (and with the hard London water, my crisp and expensive sheets went grey within a month). Let us know what colour you decide on!

  6. Oh, these bedrooms make me want to crawls right back into bed but I have to get ready for work now. Maybe I can pretend to take a nap in the one from the last image while riding the train...Have fun with your painting project! Picking a white color is sooo hard, it took me forever to settle on a white for our upstairs bathroom. xo

  7. I too tend to pick colors that are named after foods! Purple basil, pea green, mint green, and I even managed to pick a blue named Cloudberry even though not many foods are blue. I adore having bright whites in a room, but I really can't help myself from putting paintings and pictures on the walls and covering up the white.

  8. Ok, you've just made me really tired. I need a nap. :) I love all these bedrooms - All the white gives them a really clean look. We have all white bedding on our bed and I think I've just been real lucky that the kids haven't worked their magic on it. Quick, where's some wood? I need to knock on wood.
