inspired design - big comfy beds.

our bed frame broke recently (oy! don't ask) and so now we're living like hippies with our box spring and mattress on the floor. i've got a nice idea of what i would like our bed to look like:: 

with a new duvet + cover, quilt, and pillows on our wedding registry i think we'll be able to make this happen later this year. i am still in search of the perfect headboard (that h doesn't think is too girly and i don't think looks exactly like our couch pillows!) 

what does your dream bed look like? 
lots of pillows? an oversized headboard? or something simple?

  20. I dream of a tufted headboard and a million fluffy pillows! For now a mattress, box spring, and metal frame will have to do.

  21. it's so soothing to dream about beds, isn't it? Kind of makes me want to be in one :)

  22. aaaaah, these pics are so soothing. I would give almost anything to be under my covers right now!

  23. I love the look of an over-sized headboard and a massive amount of pillows. A bed that with one look makes you want to lie down on it.

  24. i LOVE that simple four-poster bed in the first pic. right now our bed is rather simple, but i wouldn't mind adding a few more luxurious pieces to it eventually...

    cheers!

  25. I love that first photo with the neutral colors keeping it simple, but with the pop of pattern mixing!

  26. Ooo, my dream bed is definitely a beautiful grey, tufted velvet headboard with pretty, pink monogrammed sheets! Oh, and a vase full of peonies on my night stand!:)

  27. I've struggled to make th eperfect bed lately. I like our sheets and pillows but our west elm duvet is getting faded and is always covered in cat hair :) And our bed sucks - it's from right on futon and is falling apart from moving around so much. Hopefully our replacement bed will be awesome - whenever we find it/build it...

  28. We definitely have our dream mattress! Each side is customized for me and the husband, it is glorious. However, we only have a bed frame. I can't wait to get a headboard one day!

  31. Neeeeed new bedding!! Love the idea of a big huge duvet that you can just get cozy in - I mean it's winter right. Pile on the puffy pillows and blankets:)

  32. oh how i have long loved that bed against the humongous paris map wall paper! i dream of sleeping there! as far as bedding goes - i love clean, crisp & white. the only other 'color' i would throw in would be neutrals in tans or grays. can't wait to see what you pick! XO brynn

  33. if you think that's living like hippies you should see our bed (a futon, basically, on the floor in a tiny wooden loft! ha!) i'm obsessed with my bed at home, high up with super comfy pillows and colorful blankets. it makes me want to curl up just thinking about it! so yes, big and comfy all the way!
