Weekend Pretties

I hope everyone is having a great weekend.  I live for the weekends :)

Here are some chic pictures that have nothing to do with one another, but I had to share…

I’ve told y’all before that I love twin beds.  Symmetry always catches my eye so a twin bedroom is the best opportunity to have lots and lots of symmetry.  What about THREE twin beds?  Love it three times as much… Not to mention how precious is this bedroom designed by Cathy Kincaid… i.e. bedspreads, beams, benches – did not even mean to use alliteration there :)

So many chic things going on in this picture below… Peacock blue door with Brass nailheads… Grasscloth on the walls… Is that a light blue painted ceiling?  I wish we could see what was beyond that door:  a chevron rug and hand painted wallpaper perhaps?

Sometimes I see a room like this and think “oh my gosh this is the cutest room ever – I love color!”…

And then ten minutes later I see this room and think “what?  I hate color!  Color is bad.  Always stick to neutrals”…

In conclusion, I am completely indecisive about what I want, but I can tell other people exactly what they want… Good thing I haven’t started designing my dream house yet!

Happy Friday!

Happy Friday!  I’m excited to have no plans this weekend .  I’m still a little exhausted from last weekend, which explains what a bad blogger I’ve been this week.  I hope you enjoy these pretties and have a great weekend!

Headboard Heaven

People are getting really creative with their upholstered headboard shapes!  John Robshaw‘s headboard designs definitely take the cake (I already dedicated a post to them), but I’ve seem some other fabulous shapes and styles in the interior design world lately.

I was inspired to write this post after seeing Robshaw’s apartment in the latest Elle Decor.  Unfortunately the pictures/article are not online.  In the article, Robshaw’s bed is a four poster metal frame with an upholstered headboard that is a variation of his Bihar headboard design.

And now for some other favorite headboard designs…

What's not to love about this huge, green, round, ikat headboard?  Statement piece.

A Favorite

This is one of my favorite bedrooms of all time. And I rarely ever like yellow. I think its the touch of green and brown combined with yellow that makes it appealing. Isn’t that fabric the cutest print? It looks like Raoul Textiles (one of my favorite lines, read more here). And those monogrammed pillows? There are no words. And I’m not a huge fan of monogramming (sometimes people take monogramming too far) – but I would take these monogram pillows any day! Also notice the Greek key trim on the bedspread – what’s not to love?

I hope everyone has a fabulous Wednesday!

Favorite Canopies

As a follow up to yesterday’s post, I wanted to share my favorite canopy beds.  Naturally, my favorite canopy beds are from my favorite interior design source, Oly Studio.  I mean, they are just beautiful…

Diego

 

Marco

 

 

Morgan

 

Walker

 

Willa

 

Obviously, the names aren’t as fun as the names of John Robshaw’s headboards… But aren’t they gorgeous?  I don’t think I can pick a fave.  Maybe Diego.  No, Marco.  No, Walker.  Ugh, one of those three!

If you’re like me and you can’t even come close to affording an Oly canopy bed (don’t worry, most people can’t), you might consider Ballard Designs’ Louis XVI Poster Bed.  Although Louis sure does NOT look appealing after looking at Marco and Walker…

 

I think if I could fit a canopy in my bedroom and I just HAD to have one RIGHT NOW I would go with Anthropologie’s Italian Campaign canopy.  I feel like they’ve had this bed forever!  It’s only $1700 for a queen – a steal compared to those Oly beds above.

 

Anthropologie also has a Forest Canopy Bed.  I’m not too fond of the iron leaves and branches though… And the price is a little too steep for me.

 

 

NOIR has some pretty canopy beds too… like the Ferret Bed (what at terrible name!  I would NOT buy this just because of the name!  Can you tell I don’t like ferrets?)

 Ferret also comes in White Washed (below) and Weathered, which is kind of the color of a ferret (ew!)

 I think I like NOIR’s Venice bed.  Not just because of the name.

 

 And last but not least, Pottery Barn has a fantastic canopy bed, Antonia.  And I love that the headboard is upholstered!

Captivating Canopies

I think the title of this post explains itself….  Too bad my little bedroom is too small for a canopy!  :(  I guess I’ll just have to add to my list of pretty pieces to put in my future dream home…

One of my favorite canopy beds has to be this one that I found on Pinterest.  I LOVE the way the hardware is mounted on the ceiling!  It’s so… industrial. And unique.

 

And now a few more canopy beds that I thought were pretty and/or just interesting ;) 

 

Benjamin Noriega-Oritz via Elle Decor… So soothing.

Jonathan Berger via House Beautiful… Antique mirror?  Yes, please!!!  And I love the rug too.

 

 

Kelly Wearstler… check out the Imperial Trellis rug!

Oscar de la Renta… I’m pretty sure that canopy bed is made of rattan or wicker… Interesting.

And last but not least, a canopy bed designed by Phoebe Howard that I’m sure that you’ve seen before.  But I couldn’t resist because it is oh-so-pretty.  And feminine.  And calming… I absolutely love the gathered detail inside the canopy.
