Well I have to admit I have had a time finding just the right thing to go above this bed. Should we go down memory lane? Why not? Here is where we were in the beginning.
Then I began to move in a more neutral direction with the bed. Can you see it? The lamps changed and we got a new bed. Here I have an original oil painting that I tried here.
Finally we got new blue French ticking bedding, new lamps, and I tried a natural look with a basket on the wall.
Then came the tin ceiling tile.
I added a small sunburst mirror as a focal point.
Then I switched it out for a larger mirror.
Then I took the tiles down, and by now it was time to change the lamps as well. (I rotate things a lot.)
Finally I got this beautiful French mirror. It still needs something, and that is coming in part 2. I put the bed skirt back on, but it was a bit short with this bed frame. (When I was using a Hollywood bed frame, it was the correct height.)
It’s a lovely mirror, but I thought the wall needed something and I felt I needed a longer bed skirt. More to come on Friday!!!

Loved going down memory lane!….and that mirror is exquisite as your bedroom…looking forward to “the more to come”
Interesting to see all the changes. Not sure that mirror is the right piece either. Maybe instead of hanging something above the bed you should try building up the headboard. Just a thought. I love the ticking stripe bedding.
I agree with this comment. Love the bed, including the dust ruffle that doesn’t break on the floor – it looks fine as it is. The new mirror and other items, such as the tiles, are too tall and are a distraction. The taller headboard is a good idea as is something rectangular whose width is more in proportion with the width of the headboard. Your dissatisfaction with everything tells you that you haven’t found the right thing yet. You will find it and it’ll be great.
Is that the mirror from your master? Love it the best. Hope you have some lovely little French sconces to go in either side….maybe?
I agree Audra!!!
Love the mirror and the bedding! Gorgeous!
The picture with the basket, hanging up and the simple roses and basket on the chest.Perfect, and it looks like you did’nt even try. Like it just happed. That’sthe french way.The brown in the basket brings out the brown in the art on the wall to the right.Please leave it! The clean crisp look of the bed, is so classic. Well that’s my view.Love ya, Ava
Well the first bedding is my favorite, green with two skirts but with the glass lamps too. I love the sunflower painting, makes it feel sunny and size appropriate. Thanks for sharing all of your changes, it’s fun to see the difference.
So many great looks….the last is my favorite and the look I am going for! Thank you so much for your ideas!!

Love that mirror – and the night table. Can’t wait to see what you do next (hope you keep the mirror). What a tease!

Ticking stripes make my heart beat a little faster. I LOVE the bedding! And seeing the transformation in photos is fun, too. I am always rearranging and moving things from one place/room to another. Drives my husband crazy, haha!

I appreciate your need to keep things moving around and changing accessories…I do this as well and you have given me permission to be creative.
I like the simple basket above the bed the best, it appears to be the perfect size in scale to the bed and surroundings. Love the ticking on the bed too.
