We're in the market for a new bed. With tax return time approaching (quietly confident, that'd be me) I am thinking it's the perfect time to invest. We're slightly limited in that we can only have an ensemble or a bed base with no bed head or end ... the length of the bed is critical. I'm quite partial to this bed (in Slate) in King no less ...
And, after watching the block last night I've become quite fond of these bedside tables ...
I've been telling myself that the black legs on the bedside table would tie it in with the dark bed base. Our dresser that we'll be keeping looks (I think) to be a similar tone to the front of the bedside tables.
Am I mad to do such a mish-mash. Probably.

I started it! I may have bitten off slightly more than I can chew by choosing a queen size quilt for my first attempt and I've also tested my mathematical abilities but ... fingers crossed the next 8 rows go as well as these two and it should work out.
Fabric courtesy of Sheridan POP, turns out it was cheaper to buy European pillow cases on special and cut them up then to buy nice fabric. I would LOVE to make a hand screen printed quilt first but thought better of spending $300 plus on fabric for the front of the quilt on my first attempt.
That's also the beginnings of my painting nook in the background, perhaps a post of that to come ...
