Decorating & Design: Master Bedroom Part 2

I was looking for ideas for how to make a DIY canopy for our very serene master bedroom.

Here's the best idea I could find. She used a staple gun to staple sheer curtains directly to the ceiling! Genius! This could possible work if our ceilings are low.

Also, Denise sent me this link. Another very clever way to achieve a make-shift canopy
While I was searching, I also found these weird beds. Totally not my style, but very cool!!

And in other news, we found an apartment!! Dan will be moving into our place in the beginning of November! Yayy!

Decorating & Design: Master Bedroom Edition

I've started gathering pictures for inspiration for decorating Dan and my new home, and thought I would get some input from my blog readers! Let's start with the master bedroom!

Here's the look I'm going for (found here)

It seems very serene and peaceful. A quiet sanctuary from the busy world! I'm going to register for white and cream linens of different textures to provide interest while maintaining the monochromatic look. And that grass green paint looks perfect!
This is a headboard that I found here. I can't figure out if it's awesome or really weird. Inflatable headboard?? What in the world? But it sure looks pretty in the picture.

Any ideas? Suggestions? I'm registering at Macy's and Bed, Bath, & Beyond so if anyone sees something great at those two stores, fill me in!!
