One of the biggest changes will be getting the master bedroom back to ourselves. At the last house, my son's bedroom was right off of the living room, so we opted to make it into a playroom and had him sleep in a toddler bed in our room. Not ideal, but it meant we could use our living room after he went to bed instead of worrying about waking him up if the TV was too loud. It also gave me a little peace of mind since I always worried that the house was a potential death trap. Definitely not a feature I'm hoping to find in the next place.
Anyway, with the new adults-only status of the master bedroom, I'm hoping to go a little modern and sophisticated. I came across this picture of a black-and-white bedroom done immaculately on the blog Sketch42 and decided it was the direction I definitely wanted to go in. Her apartment was featured in this month's Rue magazine.

This one's not a bedroom, but when I was thinking of the style I wanted to achieve, I kept coming up with "Candice Olson"-esque. Not that I can ever remember her doing a black and white bedroom, but her designs definitely have that touch of elegance, glam, and modernity that I'm hoping to achieve. Her rooms always look luxe. I LOVE the gold tiles - have to figure out a way to DIY me some.

So, that's an idea of where I'm currently heading for the master bedroom. Don't hold me to it, though. I'm kind of notorious about changing my mind about decor about a million times before I finally commit.
