Master Bedroom Idea Boards

~Confession Time~

Everyone's house has a dumping ground, right? 

{And if you don't, please don't tell me. Just nod and smile.}

That secret corner, junk drawer, or out-of-the-way closet 
where you can unload miscellaneous household items...

Well, mine is the master bedroom.

It has been neglected since the day we moved in.
The kids' rooms are cute and organized {or they were, at one point}.
The kitchen is remodeled and up-to-date.
Every room but mine has gotten some love.

The master bedroom is the catch-all for all manner of flotsam and jetsam.
Outgrown clothes, destined for eBay, 
various knick-knacks, a homeless mirror.
The ironing board remains set up in the corner. 
all. the. time.
And since I'm being honest... it usually has a mountain of laundry piled on it, 
rendering it useless for ironing... so I just don't iron.

But I can wait no longer.

The master bedroom makeover planning has commenced.
I've finally broken down and semi-learned how to use Polyvore, 
so I put together some inspiration boards

I've got several ideas, but I like them all equally and can't decide.
Chris is no help. 
So I'm turning to you, internet.

The major elements are all the same... but I can't pick a wall and bedding color combo.

Tobacco Road (by Duron) with the blue toile
or Flax (by Restoration Hardware) with the brown toile?

Version 2:

Help a girl out!
I'd love to hear your opinions!

  2. I'm right in the middle of decorating our Master Bedroom too and I'm at the point of being overwhelmed with my choices. I like too many different things I think lol. I seriously need to do what you've done and make up some boards! I did that when doing our guestroom and it helped so much.

    I personally really like your version 2 board, I think because of the wall color and beautiful brown toile. Actually both boards look pretty cool!
