Bedroom Ideas for 2009

One of my resolutions for 2009 was to 'finally' decorate our bedroom. I must say it's frustrating trying to make a space that you dislike (reference--my cave of an apartment) into a space that feels like home. However, this is my goal, and I am slowly getting there. Our living room is doing better and better, still in need of a new entertainment stand, end tables and a coffee table, but the visual effect right now is really quite pleasant. Our bedroom is a whole other job in it's self. We need EVERYTHING, and the task really is quite daunting (obviously not crucial to our survival, but one might debate that it's crucial for my sanity). Needed :: bigger bed, bed frame (with an actual headboard (yup..we are 'headboard(less)' currently), dresser, visually appealing hampers, mirrors, sheets for new bed, bedside tables and matching lights. See what I mean, it's a lot...but like everything else, piece by piece we will work towards something we love. Here are some of my favorite ideas and pieces that I think would be so fun to have!!
*pictures:: West Elm Stump, Tatum organic bedding from Pottery Barn, Ikea-Hemnes Bedframe and Dresser, this duvet from Calvin Klein, Whitewashed mirror from World Market.

On top of all this fun, I would love to find some vintage'y' looking and maybe oddly colored (yellow, orange, apple green, vintage turquoise) lights that match for both sides of the bed...I think it would be convenient for them to be mounted on the wall, instead of taking up space on a bed side table. I plan to put some of my accumulated framed posters above the bed in a sort of hodgepodge way, maybe mixing in some small pieces as well....oh goodness. Well, that's my hope for this new year, as you can see I have a lot ahead of me ($$) but I love a good find, and am thinking maybe I can find things 'like' these for less if I search very hard! If I showed my dad the Stump from West Elm, he would look at me like.."we've got allot of those things in the backyard" true.
**I think I'm all caught up on the postings...time to take a nap : )
