Master Bedroom Plans TAKE 2

For months, I have been completely uninspired by our master bedroom. I have stared in forlorn dismay at the blank walls and undressed windows with very little vision. With almost every other room, I have had an immediate vision for what I want it to look like. I feel inspired and ready to go. With our bedroom, I got nothing.

Until now.

I’m sure plans and ideas will change as I start the process, but I am all of a sudden emboldened with a clear picture of what I want the space to look like. And it is quite a bit different from my original mood board. To refresh your memory: Here is what my first mood board looked like. I had some ideas, but when I looked at the room I wasn’t super excited about how this would actually turn out.

And here is what it looks like today. It’s easy to sleep in here because it’s so boring.

And here is my new vision:
Master Bedroom Mood Board

Wall Color – Stonington Gray by Benjamin Moore (mixed in HGTV paint by Sherwin Williams
BeddingAnthropologie (I already own this) – Navy no longer available
Stripe Fabric – I will be recovering a bench for the end of our bed in a fabric similar to this.
Bird Watercolor Painting Original Only on Etsy. I love the colors in this and the peacefulness of birds. This etsy shop has so many pretty bird watercolor original works! I definitely want to order one. It is a goal of mine to start collecting more unique and original art for our home.
Ampersand Typography Art – Paperchat on Etsy. I love typographical pieces, and there is something charming about an ampersand in a master bedroom because when I married my hubs, we added a forever “&” between our names.
Agate BookendsWest Elm. I want to incorporate lots of textures and materials into the bookshelves I want to install on our free wall, and I fell in love with the colors and natural element of these book ends.
Organic Sparrow Song Euro Shams – West Elm. I purchased these several months ago. I wanted something different than I normally choose, and I thought our room deserved a touch of whimsy
Gold Quatrefoil Pillow – I found this on Pinterest (but lost the link), but I purchased a similar one at Home Goods.
Dresser – We already own one similar to this!
Night stands – I found these at a thrift store and re-did them.
Lamps – We purchased two oil rubbed bronze lamps similar to these at Home Goods (my favorite place!)
Curtains/bamboo shades – I really want to replace our mini blinds with bamboo shades, and I already purchased two sets of ivory curtains from Home Goods!

A few other notes and your opinion…

I also want to install three floating shelves on that large wall to the left of the bed and fill them with knick knacks and doo dads and art and stuff. I can’t find a picture of exactly what I want, but here is a good example…

Also, I want to find a new light fixture for the ceiling, but I am really clueless about what I want. A ceiling fan for functionality? A pendant light? A chandelier? Any ideas?

Also, I am thinking about painting the ceiling. Should I:
1. Paint the walls a darker gray and move light gray to the ceiling?
2. Leave the walls as is, but paint the ceiling a darker gray?
3. Paint the ceiling a shade of blue (Jeremy’s suggestion; he is tired of gray).

Please help me.

One final image of inspiration. I am loving this room from Kerrisdale Designs. Maybe I can just channel some of that vibe.
