Above the bed Inspiration!

As you know {if you follow me on Facebook & Instagram} you’ll know that we’re on a mission to turn our very laundry dominated {and bare walled!}  bedroom into a new fresh, crisp haven for the darling man & I. So you may have caught a glimpse of this photo I shared…

Two dressers and a wardrobe require glossing {worst paint to paint with, ever!}, some new bedding and spread a little love on the walls & we’re especially in need of some above the bed inspiration! Nothing too big a job or overly expensive because this is a low budget bedroom upgrade.

Yes, we have the feature wall painted English fire red with the gorgeous fireplace and memories photos hung up. But above the bed needs something just as fabulous. With this missing I think our room lacks character. It lacks the ability to be a room for just us, you know?

Above the bed inspiration 1Above the bed inspiration 2Above the bed inspiration 3I found some gorgeous inspiration and I am now in the process of picking which is the favourite and which one we’ll go with for above the bed. I’m really swayed towards the 6 large frames above the bed. It’s a real statement piece I think. But then I also adore the shelf holding the candles. I absolutely LOVE candles, so that’s really appealing.

Who knows what we’ll go with. But either way it’s so nice to actual take a moment out to plan something for us. We’re forever seeing to the needs of the children & making their bedrooms beautiful and personal to them, that we’ve always put ourselves aside. But we really need a beautiful bedroom too and we have been inspired, so that’s something to go on at least! I’ll keep you posted when we’ve decided and put it together! 😉

From the above the bed inspiration I’ve included, which is your favourite?

    I love that huge Mr & Mrs above the bed. It’s always hard to know what to put in that space x

    I love the bedroom with the H above the bed. I’m so into neutrals with pops of colour!

    Love your choices! I desperately need something above my bed as I currently have a white canopy hanging over it but i’ve got bored of that idea and now want either large mirror but then im scared of it falling down on us in bed or a large photo. x
