I’m in Love.

Does Cinderella live here?  She’s boutah.  You can’t put swirly twirly raw carved wood + faded blue linen together and not expect me to foam at the mouth a little.  This headboard from Urban Outfitters ($598 for F/Q) is my personal fave, but there are gobs in this bunch that Domaine just posted… which do you love??

The Great White Bedroom

I love me some all-white-everything.  I once had a boyfriend who flipped through my closet like this: “White doily, white doily, WHITE DOILY!”  If I could wear white tees + jeans every day, I would.  Never have I ever purchased bedding that’s not all white… so call me boring, but is there *anything* fresher or more clean-clean than an all-white bedroom?   Well…  ALMOST all-white.  Because imho, the key to nailing the crisp serenity of the all-white look (without going all sterile/hospital chic) is to inject ONE big, whimsical showstopper…  Comme ça:

{LOUD & CRAZY HEADBOARD}

This playful, colorful headboard steals the show in an otherwise sea of white.  Also (psst!) so easy: Plywood + batting + fab fabric + staple gun = you can do it, too. // photo via remodelista

I don’t know anyone except for Cinderella with a bed like this, but it’s a dream. // original source unknown, found here

{GIANT WOOD CARVING AS HEADBOARD}

You could also do this with a folding screen. // source unknown

{BOHEMIAN RHAPSODY}

This one is an all-time fave.  The pom pom matelassé, the ethnic euros, the oversized frames with teeny text I wish I could read inside, the hanging shelf that looks like my hippy friend’s mom made it at Woodstock…  So simple and so perfect.  // image via vintage domino

 {CEILING}

Did Michaelangelo paint that?  DAY-UM.  So pretty.  The lines on the canopy bed are also stunning and totally make this room. // from the home of kay o’toole, via lonny

{AN INTRICATE TEXTILE}

This room has more layers than just white ones, but it still has some great takeaways, including: a) If the wall behind your bed steps out like this, a low wall-to-wall headboard is a baller solution… sconces attached to it also make me weep.  b) One gorgeous statement textile at the foot of the bed goes a long way and carries the room.  Notice how all the other colors – on the lead edge of the drapes, on the lampshape trim and the trim on the headboard, in the bench – they’re all pulled from the colors in that textile to tie things together. // via le petit chouchou
