Some Dreamy Bedroom Ideas

I've been working on various rooms of our apartment, and the next up is the bedroom. I've been delighting in plain white backgrounds with punches of red. I thought that I liked the latest turquoise and coral theme, but then red kept showing up in my life. So, I think I need to go with with the universe is sending my direction.

Over our vacation, we were given this pretty watercolor painting by my guy's artist grandfather. I see this in an oversize white frame, centered over the bed:



Here's some of my additional inspiration:

An idea to redo my bulletin board and update it to a more grownup and romantic framed look via Country Living (photo by Adrian Briscoe) - I have an idea of how to do this for cheap with my existing bulletin board:



Southern Living Habersham cottage - check out the gorgeous red nightstands.

And lastly, I'm drooling over this adorable white bedspread from Target, the Kissing Pleats bedspread:

I want a bulletin board, but never knew where to look. Any suggestions?

Hillori - that barn is probably from Ohio, where Sean's grandpa lives :)

Tabitha - I bought my original bulletin board at Target, but my plan is to update the frame and cover the cork boarding. I'll try to capture it with pics and let you know how it goes :)

I like it. I hope that you share your transformation of your bulletin board. It sounds like a great idea, but I have no idea how you'll do it.
