Sage Country Boudoir

I'd love your input on the bedroom we are starting to redo. I love the other idea boards that you've done. Here are the ideas I've had so far:

The room is small, about 11x11 square. The only furniture will be the bed, beside tables and dresser. The carpet is a light sage green and stays. Anything else is completely up in the air. We'll be getting a new bed, dresser, bedding, etc. Nothing is bought yet, so I'd love your ideas.

One part that I'm struggling with is the window placement in the room. It's placed how it is shown in my Polyvore. A single pane window that is off-centered on the wall that the bed will go against. I'm not sure how to balance it...if I should do a faux window across the wall to make it bigger, hang art next to the window to balance, etc.

My style tends to be elegant or contemporary country. My husband likes more traditional country. If you need any more info, let me know. I'm excited to see your ideas!

Tara gave me a great jumping-off point with her chocolate browns and sage greens. With a few extra accent colors and a little more texture, this room really sings:

The window issue is an easy fix with a curtain wall behind the bed. Elegant pieces combined with rustic accents equals easy country style!

Lauren - I LOVE IT!! It fits my style perfectly! I love the touch of coral to the color scheme and plan on adding it to my plans. You've answered my window dilemma and I think it's a great solution.

I really like the shams, vase and artwork. I'll be scoping those out for purchasing. I'll certainly keep you updated on before and after.

Thanks for giving me a road map for the project. I'm ready to dive in now!
