Bedrooms that blow me away

Good morning hope everyone had a wonderful weekend. We did, it was actually pretty relaxing despite having another tournament for my son, but this one was thankfully local. We are winding down with the tournaments and I am not complaining! As we are nearing the final stages of the house, the decisions are coming at us fast and furious and I need all the attention, focus and clear thinking I can muster! I love bedrooms and now that I am really starting to think about my own in the new house, I have been paying a lot of attention to them, how they are furnished, what kinds of bedding is used, if wallpaper is being used in the bedrooms that I tend to be drawn to, lighting, etc.....its all in the details and how those details all come together! I am drawn to softer colors, love the idea of a bedroom feeling like you have been enveloped in a cocoon of luxuriousness and serenity. 
I tend to favor the soft blues and creams but every now and then I surprise myself by being really attracted to a bedroom that is not in line with what I typically like. So today is a post about some beautiful bedrooms that for one reason or another is just very inspirational. Many different styles pictured here from casually coastal to very formal, but they are all lovely!  I love seeing extra seating in a bedroom, whether it be a chaise lounge, a bench at the foot of the bed, a pair of love seats or a huge comfy over sized club chair and ottoman. Whats your ideal bedroom? Always love to know!

And in honor of Mosaic Monday here is a little recap:
Well....get any ideas? Have a favorite here? I love seeing gorgeous inspiration but admittedly it can sidetrack and overwhelm me when you have to narrow it down to ONE thing!! I feel like I am making progress however and I cannot imagine having gone through this process without the Internet, God bless bless those brains that created it some thirty or forty years ago! Hope you have a wonderful day....
