Bedroom Inspiration

My bedroom has long been neglected. I want my bedroom to be a little haven for me. I’m thinking clouds. Soft puffy, ethereal clouds. So the look will be blues, whites and silver. The moment I saw this bedroom in the Feb/March 2010 issue of Lonny, I was in love. So I’m making it my inspiration. As soon as I’ve got all the cloud artwork and mirrors up in my bedroom, I’ll show you the final product.

ikea rens sheepskin rug

IKEA had a midnight madness sale last weekend and it was mad. Naturally there was very little on sale. They put a couple of things on sale and called it midnight madness. But they did have their Rens rugs on sale – regularly $35, but I got them for $20 each. I’m going to use them under my glass coffee table in lieu of an area rug.

a good sofa is hard to find

I’ve been looking for a nice affordable sofabed but haven’t been able to track one down. I was looking at the Karlstad sofabed at IKEA but it felt like a sofabed – hard as a rock. At this point I think I’ve abandonned that avenue and I’m looking for a fabulous couch that I could use a few years down the road.

I’m not sure how I happened upon Mikaza home’s website, but it’s a great online store that sells gorgeous modern furniture at a great price. Plus, they’re located in Ottawa. Here’s the couch I’m looking at purchasing from them – if they have it in a  dark gray. I’m going to visit the showroom sometime in the next two weeks to look at fabric swatches and flip through their catalogue.
