master bedroom makeover HELP!

Finally, a new bedroom set is in the makings for us.
Although our current set is still in good condition, it is going on 13 years old, and the style is really not what we like anymore.
Our minds have been swirling with ideas.
I thought this is going to be fun, because you all will be coming along this bedroom makeover with us.
 Most everything current must go. I will be keeping the trunk and the bench.
Even my fun colorful French posters...GONE....
Here are the every changing Master bedroom looks no particular order here.

BEFORE BLOGGING
http://2.bp.blogspot.com/_5tOA2F7YKT4/S75rUZEEV_I/AAAAAAAABqI/Aln5D9DdyDA/s640/101_7000.jpgThis last one was my most popular. The bedding was from Better Home and gardens purchased last year. I still love the fun fresh colors.

So now that you have seen the ever changing Master bedroom.  These are just some of the new looks and styles I am going for.  I do need some help though.  
I am really leaning toward a wrought iron bed frame, paired up with a wood sideboard and dresser.

I like the look of the wrought iron.  If we can have a farmhouse, rustic, look, that is what I am going for.

I like the frame only on this, I certainly do not need a pull out in the master bedroom.
Call me crazy, but this last one...I kinda like it.
http://www.wrought-iron-furniture-online.com/images/B6000.jpg
So as you can see I am all over the place here.
HELP?
Would love any and all ideas. There are so many talented women out here. 
Any suggestions would be appreciated.  We are starting from Scratch.
The wall color will remain the same.  The drapes are iffy, depending on what new bedding we wind up with. 
I still want to have color, whimsy yet a romantic  feeling.

Deb, I have an Iron bed that is almost identical to the first picture and I LOVE LOVE LOVE it. I've had it for 5 years and don't think it will ever go out of style!!!

I can't give you any advice because I think your room looks awesome! I can understand the need for a change, but I love how it looks. After looking at your pictures of your bedroom it made me want to do something with my bedroom. when I married my husband I had to marry his massive 400 pound aspen log headboard. It's unique but an eye soar and takes up the whole room. I want to buy a king bed just as an excuse to get rid of it!
I do love the iron bed, but keep the great bedding from better home and gardens! Cant wait to see what you are up to.

How fun! A wrought iron bed sounds delightful. Our master bed has both wrought iron and wood details. Kind of a compromise between both worlds.

I had to laugh at the trundle bed! What a great idea when the hubby get's out of line!!! he he.

I love that BH&G bedding! I think it would look fantastic with that second metal bed. The second one would look great with the bench in the window that you have in your last bedroom pic. Is the bench staying?

Oh, what to do, what to do! I really like the iron-look, but if your room is large, it would need to be hefty & not dainty. I think that paired with some wood pieces would be lovely & flexible with whatever you choose for bedding. I'm excited for you & can't wait to see what you choose.

I LOVE the look of a wrought iron bed. I will tell you from someone who has a wrought iron bed...not too comfy when you try to lean up against it. As long as you're cool about piling up pillows, the look can't be beat and it is a classic look that will never go out of style. I love the Pottery Barn one the best.

Yes, a wrought iron bed gets my vote. I love it's classy look and it will never go out of style, it goes well with everything! Have fun with the makeover, it's always exciting to change things up a bit!

Debbie, actually that last one goes so well with your mix of Spanish style in your house. So funny that you showed us the old rooms. I am changing the kitchen as we speak and was going to show the old kitchen. I just hope the man will start his part tonight.

I love the first iron bed for you..the second one is nice, but I think would look better in the darker finish. Brighter colors definitely suit your personality more, so don't go too light. I love your wall color and will go with anything you choose. As for the window treatments... it will depend on your bedding. Try doing a mood board. That might help you confirm your choices.

Go with your gut! That philosophy always works for me. The last one is awesome!... and since you have straight lines above the bed with the crown molding, I think the curvature detail would compliment the look :)

It looks like you have a high ceiling in there, so I would say one of the beds with the higher headboard would look good - like the 3rd or 4th. As soon as I saw the 4th I thought it was more you. You're not demure in your decor and that last one makes a statement!

I like the 3rd and last one, Debbie. Whichever you pick, I know it will look beautiful....Christine

Hi Debbie,
I love the last one! It looks like a garden gate to me too and would look great with a floral designed bedspread. Your bedroom will be beautiful no matter which you choose. Thanks for sharing.

The last 2 yes yes! I am a lover of farmhouse, and that last one suits your spanish mission to me, or in my opinion. I know you'll pick something great!

Blogger Piorra Maison said...

I am kinda leaning towards the 3rd one (less the trundle bed). The last one is very busy. You might have more versatility with a plain pattern. too much iron work in the bedroom might be overwhelming?? A bed is not something we change often, and you seem to like switching out bedspreads, patterns and color. The ornate bed frame may be limiting. In the end you will choose what you like best and you are the one that has to sleep with your decision. hehehe .....Or you can sleep on it and choose in the morning. sorry had to say it...
bon decision, a la prochaine.

I love wood so I can't really give any advice on a metal bed frame! Must say if your bedroom is currently #1 pic, I wouldn't change a thing!!! I love the wall colors and those pretty bright curtains. Can't wait to see what you do end up doing though, I know it will be just as fab :)

I like the first one, but you may need to go with a higher headboard. I am still in the process of our master bedroom makeover, but I am almost done! :) just the final touches, then I can post them. It was so stressful looking for furniture with my husband, and he said no to wrought iron, which made me sad, then he went and said no to a canopy! UGH to frustrating! so we settled on something we neither chose but it was ok, hope you do better. have lots of fun!

Hi Debbie,
I have a bit of a different idea to throuw out to you!
If your favorite is the Better Homes and Gardens room ( which I also really like!) then what about going for a little more freshness?
Think white iron bed ( I like the last two best), big fluffy white bed linens (comforter, and main pillows) and curtains. Then add color in your sheets and pillowcases,layers of pillows and accessories. All of this white would look so lovely against your wall color too, it would really pop! You could even paint your bench...
Anyway just a few ideas!
Thanks for taking the time to stop by my blog and for all of the useful help for new bloggers!!

Blogger Tammy@Beatrice Banks said...

Love the last one! Reminds me of a garden gate. I like massiveness of it for a rich look. I could see it piled high with soft white or cream linens. It would hardly even need anything hanging above it. It's a piece of art in itself.

Blogger Anita said...

Oh Debbie how fun!! I cannot wait to see what you come up with!! If you want wrought iron, I do suggest you look at Wesley Allen beds. They are incredible and made in the finish you want. I had the "Barcelona" bed in black., It now resides in my ex-husband's house unfortunately:-( Can't wait to see the transformation!!

I would definitely go with an iron bed. If I could convince my hubby one of these days, that's what I would go for.

I love the first two options, Debbie. The last option is beautiful, but feels more gothic than rustic country. I'm looking forward to following your master bedroom makeover!

I love the first new bed idea you showed. The way it's accented at the joints and the slight curve on the ends is great. The 2nd one is my 2nd favorite, sorry don't like the last two at all. I think you'd grow to hate the super tal arch on the one and the kind of gothic look of the other seems rather ornate. Good luck, sounds like fun to me!

Ohhhh...You aren't gonna get into that ropes and bondage thing are you? Just asking~

We have an iron bedstead that we put upstairs when we went to a king bed. The only "warning" I can give you is this...if you like to read in bed (propped up or resting against the back) make sure you get one with some rigidity to the rails and that they are uniformly spaced. Otherwise your pillows, etc. are always pushing back and through the rails (bars,whatever). We have had two iron beds...Our first one was awful (for that reason) the 2nd one was wonderful. That's it...my warning... Make sure you try sitting up against the back if you do sit up to read or watch TV. xxoo Diana

I've had a metal four poster bed for over ten years. I can't wait to get rid of it. It is very uncomfortable for reading or watching TV in bed. We are always having to prop up pillows just so. But if you are just sleeping there, then they are very pretty.

p.s. I hope my comment didn't come across as negative. It's just something I wish I would have thought of before we bought our bed. :)

My favorite is the second one. I love the curve on the frame and the quilt is so pretty. Do you know where the trundle one is from? I really need some sort of trundle in my guest room so I have more room in there to sew.
