Bedroom Eyes

I think I've seen every bed in Memphis. Ok, not really, but at least in all of the furniture stores in Memphis. Fred and I spent the majority of our weekend going from furniture store to furniture store in search of the best king sized bed. We had specifications for this bed:
  • Must be a KING
  • It had to be espresso colored to match our other bedroom furniture
  • Knox has to be able to jump on it from the stool at the foot of the bed (yes, we base a bed's qualifications by whether or not our dog can get on the bed easily)
  • It has to have clean lines

Well, as luck would have it, we found a winner (don't look at the bedding).

Do you like? We found it at I.O. Metro and we found out that if we become a "Fan" of I.O. Metro on Facebook, we receive an additional 25% off of the price. Yay! But the offer ends Wednesday; so, we have to move quick! We're ordering the mattress today as well. So, hopefully, by mid-July, we'll be sleeping on a King.

We also found some great bedding (not what's pictured above) at I.O. Metro that already match our drapes. I'm in love already. I also found some great barstools there too. I can tell that this place is going to be bad for me.

Here's a picture of our current bedroom:

I think a King will look great with all of the space that we already have.

I did manage to sleep off my cold this weekend. Thank goodness. But, I am heading to the doctor today to find out more about what's going on inside my body. Hopefully, I can get more answers and a plan of action.

I hope you all had a great and relaxing weekend. I am super excited because I have Friday and Monday off. Yay!!!

I love it! So pretty.

And don't feel bad about the dog requirement - we bought steps for our little one so she could get up on the bed easily. :)

While a king sized bed is amazing.. I love your bedroom right now! We recently took our bed off the frame so our yorkie could jump up on it easier. So we too are shopping for a bedroom set that he can hop from the bench to the bed easily.

I love that you guys are getting a king! Bruce refused to get one :( oh well. I love the frame you picked but I also love the bedding you have now! I'm glad your cold is going away and you're feeling better!!

Marian said...

Looks like the perfect bed!! I absolutely love it. I can't wait to buy a large bed as well (after we get married as all our money seems to be going towards that right now)

25% off is HUGE!!! Congrats on the awesome sale and the new bed. Once you go King you can never go back. :-)

We're going furniture shopping tomorrow too. We're very picky about what we want for bedroom furniture too. I wish there were an I.O. Metro near us; I've heard so many good things about it! Love your new bed!
