Inspiration for Master Bedroom Makeover

Pin It

I

'm a collector. Of inspiring images. For years, I've kept an inspiration file for home decor, clothing, fitness, and other ideas. I've also learned to mark posts in my Google Reader so that I can refer to them as needed.

As I leaf through the pages and files, a definite style emerges. Not an official style, mind you, just my style. I guess I would describe it as industrial cottage with coastal and natural touches. I love a mix of metals and woods. I love whites & earth tones with pops of color. Wood floors, stone tiles...yum! Breezy curtains, beadboard...you had me at hello!

As we do our home room by room, I refer to these pages and files often. As the master bedroom makeover emerges, I thought I'd share some of my inspirational sources with you. Some are years old, some a few months, and one I just found today!
