Putting It All Together: Ikea Bedroom

What could be better than a whole room with everything from Ikea?

My housemate just bought this lovely dresser from Ikea.  The Hemnes Chest With 8 Drawers is a lot larger than it looks in the picture.

I think this Inger fabric would look absolutely lovely next to the dresser.  The more I look at it the more I love it:

Add in a little curtain rod- nothing too fancy cause we want the attention on the lovely curtains.  Skuggig from Ikea:

Putting It All Together: Ladies Boudoir

Definition of Boudoir from Wikipedia:

“A boudoir is a lady’s private bedroom, sitting room or dressing room. The term derives from the French verb bouder, meaning “to pout”.

Historically, the boudoir formed part of the private suite of rooms of a lady, for bathing and dressing, adjacent to her bedchamber, being the female equivalent of the male cabinet. In later periods, the boudoir was used as a private drawing room, and was used for other activities, such as embroidery or entertaining intimate acquaintances.”

The Master Bedrooom should evoke a feeling of romance.  Avoid pictures of your kids staring at you while you are in bed.  I like Antra from Ikea:

Putting It All Together: Living Room

I am going to start putting together furniture and accessories that I think would go well together.  Here goes the first one:

The Paris Chair from Jeffrey Braun Furniture + The Andalusia Rug in Espresso from West Elm + Benjamin Moore Nob Hill Sage 450 for the walls (the actual color looks a lot different than the color, in real life it is a pretty green) + Ceramic Peonies from Arhaus

I like this fabric from Kravet for the chair, I think it might be a little too busy though if it were next to the rug (scroll down):

So maybe this fabric from Kravet would be better: (although I really like the other one)
