We have bought some furniture from IKEA over the years, including our current bedroom furniture. I like it a lot, but it's super modern. I'm not sure I'm going to always want such a modern look. We were at IKEA yesterday purchasing some final items for our office and we checked out the bedroom furniture. I found two sets for our guestroom, which I'd like to do in a nautical theme. I like the furniture because it's very classic, and I can imagine this being in our guestroom in this house and for years to come even in another house.
This bed and dresser are from the Hemnes Collection.
This set is from the Birkeland collection.
I'm not yet sure about an end table. I plan to check out Home Goods, Marshalls, and TJ Maxx. I also envision a cool wicker chest to store extra bedding.
Do you all agree that this furniture is pretty classic? I feel like I can build a nautical room around this furniture, but can also do something else with it in our next home. It will be used so infrequently, I doubt it'll ever be "worn out", as we so rarely have overnight guests...though I sometimes move into the guestroom when B snores too loudly! ;)
I searched a bit in google images and found some "inspiration":
This will a nice Spring project for me, and something to look forward to. If you follow me on twitter, you might already know that on February 4th, I'm having hip surgery. I have a labral tear, which I'm certain happened in ballet. The surgery is arthroscopic, so not too invasive, but I'll still be on bed rest for 2+ weeks, and using crutches for 3 weeks. Thankfully, I'll have my ipad and all you ladies to keep me company!
