Bedroom decor help

I bought a new king size bed for our room and was thinking about what I could put above the bed... also maybe I should get new lamps? ( I wasnt sure if my side tables would be ok with this headboard) .Maybe a throw for the bed... White or purple?? I did find a few prints that I was considering for over the headboard.. what do you think? Or should I go with something different? Any ideas? suggestions? What would look nice? The thing on the left holds my husbands ipad so that has to stay.. he likes to read at night... should I 86 the small lamps? even though they are so great when reading at night... maybe change them to something else?

    I agree you don’t need anything above your headboard. Taller lamps are all you need on the bedside tables, let them be statement piece and you don’t need additional art there.

    Let's add some floor to ceiling drapery to those windows! I would suggest going with a light neutral and bold dark, hardware. This way it will accentuate the height of your room, and pull your eye UP! The art above the bed is just fine and dandy. With the perspective it does pull you into the room.

    Hi Shanee, I suggest getting different pillows shams for the row second-to-back, and also the first one. Something in a more saturated green/blue would compliment the seafoam color well. White sheers sounds nice for the windows! It will help soften the space. How about some lamps with clear bases? This one from West Elm would feel light in the space. Good luck!

    I'd get a large cork board, dry erase board with magnets, or something like that to place above the desk so he can add whatever he likes to it. He can add posters, a large map, or flag to hang on the other walls. He also needs some sort of light near the bed. You can put in a plugin wall mounted sconce between the bed and desk, a small desk lamp on the desk, or a clip on light for the side of the desk if it's not wide enough for a lamp. The corner with the red chair is perfect for a comfy chair. If budget is an issue, you can get great deals on NextDoor or Craigslist.

    Im ordering 2 rods? Im sorry Im a little confused now... why do I need 2 rods? I ordered the ivory panels ... thats done... Can I not just buy ONE rod? Sorry... Theres no 66 - 120 there.... and I see no gold in 48 - 84.. there is only black and bronze.. Im not seeing what you are... Are we not doing what you posted on the picture you sketched? that looks like one rod...??? You know at this point... maybe I just go with something simple.. sheers on the outside of the mouldings..... And this is WAY to much work for you! Its hard to do this online like this.. for the sheers anyways.. I did order the ivory panels.. If I can just get ONE rod.. and go with that.. and then I will let you have a life - lol.. I feel bad here... I will try and figure it out...

    The reason I said get two??

    Is because it says there is one - "Open box "

    and the same with the other size " one and open box

    God forbid something missing!

    I would change the headboard to a purple or plum shade rather than the white one for some contrast. I would get a purple throw for the bed. Have you considered a Canopy for the bed in purple? You could get a chaise where your husband could sit with the Ipod. Maybe add some big exotic plants or a big artificial tree like a ficus with some miniature lights strung on it.

    Cara,

    You may have skipped over a lot of posts

    The bed stays. As does the bedding and the rest.

    This will get art above the bed and further embellishment, but as you see remains. .....

    The op is very happy , with where the room is now: )

    Please just buy the Wayfair rod?

    In the course of a bedroom redo, all in , one expense vs total that couldn't go back? You can't wring a hand over it can't go back. Better you take your chances in gold 66 -120!

    More than likely it need not go back - it is 79.99 in a perfect size, so just order it. Right?! Right,

    So Jan.. I recieved my sheers and they were sheer WHITE.. I held them up in the room and to me it looks like a hospital.. so I decided to send them back... (I am going to be honest here.. Im sorry.. really sorry... but I perfer the grommet style..to me they look more classy... soo.. I am going to try and find a color that isnt stark white and get the grommet style..) .OR a back tab style... I guess I have different taste... Thank you for helping me .. You have gone above and beyond here for and I cant ask for more from you! And this is really hard to tell you. because I didnt like the sheers.. I cancelled the rod order and will pick something up else where.. I think I am going to go with a dark brown rod as I think it looks nice with my side tables.. I hope you will forgive me :( . I know you hate grommet but I like them .. I bought some for my livingroom a few years ago and I love them! I got my throw... I like it but it could of been a bit more chunky.. so I am going to buy myself some bernat blanket yarn and crochet another one.. it a nice purple... This is the throw I received ...


    This is what I was considering.. I hope the color will go... https://www.amazon.ca/dp/B086X5QBYM/?coliid=I16MA7JY5TRIKE&colid=1LBOZPBEDEP2B&ref_=list_c_wl_lv_ov_lig_dp_it&th=1

    I like neither. If you want to buy matching rings? Look for something in curtains with pleats.

    The best scenario? You aren't moving......have them made: )!! for you. Look local in your area, ask friends,

    You'll have them forever......You select the fabric. You must have a fabric store in Canada.

    Real panels look like this: )


    Try Etsy Canada, or local

    If you don't want custom, try Vermont Country Store. They have sheer pinch pleat curtains in varying widths and they come in ivory. Reasonably priced and they look very nice. I have them in my vacation home.

    Sage, and double the pair

    https://www.vermontcountrystore.com/insulated-lined-96-inch-pinch-pleat-curtains/product/81062

    Their panel width is for a PAIR

    None will be good without fullness _ double up

    Still cheaper than custom. Fact is? Not everything can or should be cheap.

    Well I decided to go with these drapes for now... I know alot of you do not like grommets but I do actually.. I think they hang nice.. I guess its a personal thing.. Anyways I really like them.. Jan... I am STILL waiting for the art work.. I finally phoned BB & B and asked them why it was taking so long.. delayed delayed.. I told her I have had things come faster from China.. anyways will post a photo of that too if I ever get it... I know you dont like grommets so do you think the color at least works? Anyways I am really happy with them.. I just have to have them hemmed 1/2 from the floor.. the photo itself doesnt look as good as they do in person... but again.. I am happy with them and I think it looks alot better with them...
    Actually I am considering buying one more panel... so I would have wall to wall drapes... Or do you think its fine size wise how it is...

    Thank you Jan.. ONE MORE QUESTION.. I do have that art work ordered as mentioned above but they told me I can return it if I want at this point.. but I did find another pce of art I really liked but the problem is it is more square.. I need a longer pce of art .. on this guys site he says he can work with me on my art work size.. custom the size for me.. Anyways this is the art work.. do you think it would work for my space if I had it made 40 - 43" long x 23 h... I have 36" from the top of my headboard to the ceiling... and if you think it would work would you frame it or leave it as as... THANK YOU Again Jan!!! I know I didnt totally go with what you said but you helped me sooo much! Sorry for the screen shot but thats the only way I know how to show you ... I dont have a program to add things to the room.. wish I did!!! Obviously the art is too big the way I did it there.. but if I can get it longer and shorter.. do you think the colors would work ok? Oh.. one more thing.. should I just leave the curtains as is.. the way I have them on the floor.. dont hem them?

    Leave the curtains touching or even with a little break at the floor. You have blinds, no need to keep yanking them closed. A half inch off the floor is for old ladies.

    As to the art" 23 x 42 or 43 is fine

    Hang it with 4" open wall at the BOTTOM of frame to top of headboard, and you will have nine inches above the art in exposed wall to the ceiling line.

    The relationship is between the bed and the art, not the art and the ceiling.

    I assumed we were talking about the art in the screenshot? YOU have to like it! Looks fine!I am not sleeping in the room

    Go get a nice room darkening cell shade at home depot /big box store. They must have a version in Canada?

    Or get a local window treatment dealer TO the house....You don't need the shade down 24/7! And blinds are just "fugly"

    No. No. No!!! I beg.....It's the opposite feel of the room. Too heavy, too dark and no.

    You paint the room the color of the other three walls please?

    It's a bed. You have the lamps, the headboard. bedding, the mirrors. You have to know when to stop.

    As to this?





    You didn't like the one you had over the bed, This is almost identical and you can't make art just change size, change direction and always enjoy "success" , even when it is wall decor: )

    Find something you can stack.....think vertical
