hello I am in need of some decorating advice. I am trying to redecorate my master bedroom and am drawing blanks. We have a 20x28 pine log cabin room with 6 windows and a french door so there is lots of light! We live in the country and the rest of our log home is decorated in antiques and rustic items. We are a young couple and are wanting our bedroom to be romantic but fresh with maybe a little country. We don't agree on a lot color wise, but we do both like light green. We have an old barn gate as our head board and our ceilings are 16ft. vaulted so the headboard gets kinda lost. What about maybe putting lots of mirrors above gate? Any cheap decorating ideas would be great!!This message has been edited. Last edited by: Tatha,
I don't know what they're called, but what about a partial fabric canopy thing - pinned up higher above the bed in the center and then pulled back on each side... I'm not good at explaining things, but I can picture it. In the right fabric it could separate the bed off from the huge wall and give it a rustic/romantic feel.
Here's a resource that you may find helpful if you decide you need to replace curtains, it helped me a great deal, I hope you'll love it too.
About the mirrors above the gate, I think you would like it. My wife made use of mirrors when redecorating our bedroom. I liked it too
I have to agree with you guys about the effect of a mirror in a bedroom. It makes it more dramatic and spacious. You can also add some good lighting and rustic beddings to it. I think this site can give you a good hint on what you can add on to your bedroom.
Since it sounds like you have a lot of open space and light I would go with a minimalist modern/contemporary look. Some pale olive green and red would look great against natural wood tones. Perhaps accenting in burgundy as well. Ikea has a lot of great low cost options and room ideas. West Elm and Crate & Barrel and some of my favorites as well.
