Amelia Bed at High Fashion Home


I can barely contain my excitement over our new king-sized (!!!) bed arriving tomorrow. I had the design plan for our bedroom stored away in my head for a while but in anticipation for the bed's appearance tomorrow, I decided to put together a design board for our bedroom. We're going straight-up Don Draper style with a neutral-colored 60s modern look that includes a bed with an upholstered tufted headboard, sputnik chandelier, mirrored vanity and night table, shag rug and a vintage C. Jere sculpture (fingers-crossed for good e-bay karma) or perhaps just going with the reissued Jonathan Adler C. Jere sculptures (although that feels like cheating and I'm determined to find a better price).



But back to the bed...we went with the Amelia in brussels charcoal from High Fashion Home. I had my eye on the Horchow "Brea" Bed for a while, but the Amelia was so similar (sans nail heads giving it a more modern appearance) and a much better price. I also liked the selection of fabrics you could choose from. I ordered six different swatches and in the end we decided to go with the brussels charcoal color. Due to the neutral color scheme, we liked how the brussels gave off a bit of a shine which provided more interest and kept the room from being too blah.

It also ties in nicely with the Hollywood Wallpaper behind the wall of our bed. The wallpaper is a beautifully hand painted design with very understated colors but gorgeous pattern. I love this wallpaper and wanted to continue letting it be the star in our room, which meant we had to keep most of the colors fairly neutral so as not to distract from the pattern on the wall. But of course, I can't go without any color, so we'll add pops of blue with pillows and a throw.

The rug and chandelier should be arriving at the end of this month, so I'm not too far away from showing the grand reveal. But with the bed's arrival tomorrow, we will begin seeing the whole design come together!
