of a new bed. Hehe! For a while now I’ve wanted new bedroom furniture but after paying for carpet I don’t think buying a full set is in the cards. However, I think I’ve convinced Matt to buy a new bed. He really wants a King size bed and I really want a Tempurpedic mattress (not a real one because those things are $$$$ but a nice fake one from Ikea would do.)
Currently I have my eye on a bed from West Elm. They are opening a new store in the Southpoint Mall in Durham next week I think. This will be great because we can check it out and make sure it’s what I want, but I think it is. I’ve been coming back to fabric headboards. It just seems like they are in style and a little more versatile. We will get a dark base and then when the time comes we can buy the rest of the furniture. My only complaint is I don’t really like any of the coordinating furniture from West Elm so this means, when the time comes, we will have to find something else that matches. I think we will be okay though.
I really do like this look. I also like how low to the floor the base is. This will keep the kiddos from getting under the bed. But it also eliminates any sort of under bed storage. We desperately need more storage in our bedroom for sure. Oh well, that’s why we need new furniture. 🙂
