Boston bedroom: in the works.

Our bedroom has really come a long way.  When Gabe and I first moved in, a futon mattress on the floor had to do until we had the cash to spring for the bed we were both lusting over.  One night, I woke up to a not so friendly insect (to this day I get goosebumps thinking about it) scratching up my leg underneath the sheets.  The worst part was that by the time I sprung up from the futon and hit the light, the creature was nowhere to be found (cringe!!!).  That was it, we charged the bed the next day.

 There is still more we would like to do to it, such as replacing the dark wood bookcases across from the bed.

I am obsessed with chandeliers, and I think something like this Bella Figura Santini Chandelier would be the perfect amount of glam!

Above the fireplace opposite the bed, I could see a collection of some sort.  I think sunburst mirrors with frames painted in hip colors would look really neat.  The mirrors would reflect the downtown light right into our apartment, and if the frames are painted brightly, would be a dramatic and funky twist on a traditional accessory. 

 I’ll keep you updated on the progress!  Happy Friday!
