Can anybody recommend a queen bed frame that's very sturdy and supports a headboard? It's really hard to tell whether any given frame on Amazon or Wayfair is any good. Wirecutter had one they recommended, but it was $300 plus shipping which seems a little more than I'd prefer to go for.

IKEA do some strong n cheap solid wood bedframes with headboard. This is a ESPEVńR with ARNAVIK headboard in my basement.



Their website sucks for finding things but go and have a look in the shop. Lots of their frames are chipboard but feels like this one will hold up better.

If you want simple and standard sizes, anywhere really; hardware stores, Ikea, amazon

Non-standard sizes: also amazon for simple designs, or even frame stores are still quite cheap if they're not doing the corners custom

It doesn't get expensive until you get into custom, harmonious sculpted corners (I'd be curious if there's a technical name for this)

I do all my own custom framing using conservation materials and techniques. It's really not that hard to learn how to do and the materials are usually reasonably priced compared to what you'd pay for the same plus labor at a frame shop. If you want to go that route I'd recommend https://www.americanframe.com/ or https://www.framedestination.com/.

Ikea has some fun designs for frames but I would strongly dissuade anyone from using them for anything of value or which cannot be duplicated. The frames are cheap fiberboard, the glass has no UV coating, but worst of all is the mats and backings are not acid free, so over time you will permanently discolor anything coming in contact of them. If you can swap out the mat and backer board you'll be in better shape. Any of the very large Ikea frames I'd probably skip on too, the fiberboard can't take the hanging weight and after a while the screws attached to he hanging wire will probably be pulled out.

Sofa swatches came in. I ordered every grey they had and included a velvet (5) and vegan leather (15) samples just for reference.


Feedback from a female friend who's more conservative in her aesthetic likes 3, 9, 12. Male friend who has a similar aesthetic likes 3, 4, 12.


3 (100% polyester, solvent/water cleanable, 20k rub count): I think this is a really interesting idea, especially in the small quantity on the swatch, but it seems like a lot in the full render.


4 (20% linen/80% polyester, solvent cleanable, 15k rub count): I worry about the durability of the linen. Looks nice in the render but there's something about the swatch that gives me pause.


9 (55% polyester/45% acrylic, solver/water cleanable, 50k rub count, pet friendly): I worry this is too tan. I like the render, but the reminds me a bit of straw baskets which I associate with scratchiness. However, it's the most durable and the only pet friendly option of these four.


12 (100% polyester, solvent/water cleanable, 20k rub count): Incidentally, this is the render I've been sharing. I like the close-up texture, but I worry it looks plain in the render.


I personally rank them 12, 9, 3, then 4. I worry about 12 looking flat from afar but it obviously has coloration up close. 9 definitely gets points for durability but it reminds me of oatmeal. I want to be brave and go with 3 but worry it might be a bit much. 4 is just... it's fine but it's the least durable of all Inside Weather's fabrics.

For reference the other side of the living room will look like this, and I'm thinking of a dark blue or green rug:

Is there a way to not have the tv blocking the window?

I have a question about filling wall areas - I'd prefer to just have the print on the right side be on this wall, but I feel like it will leave too much space on either side. Are there any good guides on reducing the amount of stuff on the wall without it feeling too empty?

I noticed a lot of (staged) modern interiors have very little on the wall, but it always looks good!

Short answer is no other than flipping the sofa/TV positions, but I don't think it makes a difference. The window faces a bunch of trees so it doesn't contribute to lighting in the room. The drapes (which I'll replace at the end) control the lighting. These photos are exposure locked on the TV window and it's 100% overcast right now:

The TV can very easily go to the left of the window if you stop being so goony about having it directly in front of the middle of the sofa.

Great that you kept all the empty cardboard boxes, they really tie the room together.

I'm going to post some more pics of my bedroom - overall I'm very happy with this room - it's very comforting and has the blue/gray/walnut kind of palette I'm looking for.

I just got this plant which I think looks really nice and adds some vibrant color. The dresser (and nightstand) will be upgraded to something of actual quality, like the walnut copenhagen series from room and board (https://www.roomandboard.com/catalo...nhagen-dressers). I'm wondering about what to do with that corner though - I don't really need that crappy bookcase, and most of the books on it I will either be selling once stores open up again. I do use the radio (for my dog lol) but that could go on the dresser. Is there some other way I could fill that space? Perhaps move the dresser over more? If my new dresser is the longer kind it would probably make the question moot, but I'd prefer a 4-5 drawer tall over a wider one with two columns of the drawers Also I might put the hamper in the closet as it does look kind of weird there.



On this side, my only issue is that stupid intercom high up. I don't use it at all (if someone comes by they just call me). I did put up a little print there, but the problem is that's well above high level, so I think it looks a bit awkward. It might be okay to just leave it like this though.



Okay please ignore the crap on the floor Why the hell is the electric box there??? Who the gently caress decided that? Is there any way to cover that up given it's in such a weird spot (i.e. right next to the change in the wall angle)?



this is the same pic as above. I'm wondering if I can get away with having just the right print be on this wall. Above the bed it looks awkward because it's pretty much square.

One option I would be interested in is a sconce that could go above the bed. However I honestly very rarely have any lights at on in this room - when I'm reading in bed it's with an e-reader so it's not necessary. If I want to read a physical book I sit in the other room next to a lamp

Your bedroom looks very nice and I don't really think you need to do anything to it. For when you lose the bookshelf: it's actually really nice having a chair in your bedroom, not necessarily for sitting on but looks good and it's a good place to put clothes.

This is #8. The swatch is alright but probably too dark since my understanding is dark sofas are a visual black hole. It looked way better in the render imo:


This is #13. It's light grey with a tint of blue and also pet friendly. I kinda like it but I don't think the hue is quite right, and the coloring is very flat.

13 is my favorite swatch after 12. I don't think it will be flat, I think it will be nice and subtle which is what you want. Once you have the sofa, you can get other things to go with it that are more vibrant, for example various lights and plants.

This is with lighting from the sun peeking through the clouds. It's much more realistic (I tried an outside photo yesterday when it was sunny it didn't come out right). In particular, you can better see the hints of blue in 13, but hopefully you can also see what I mean by the hue being not quite right.

These are from https://insideweather.com. They're not running a Memoral Day sale like everyone else so I think they may be a higher level of quality than their lower price would indicate. I'm considering the Milo sofa which is $1048 with upholstery option 12; the matching ottoman (not live on their site yet) is another $248.

I'm just noticing they list the colors in their promo photos. This is 12, it does have a bit of texture:


This is supposedly 4 which would really interest me, but I think it's a mistake because...


This is also 4. This also interests me, but it's still not like my swatch.


I propped up 12 and 4, facing the sunlight, and examined them from 15 feet. 4 definitely looks like a white and black melange charcoal, and I audibly said "12 looks good."

I think we've done it.

In reading about minimalism, one of the first things mentioned was just to leave an area empty or at least decluttered for a while. The chair may seem like it's not enough now, but perhaps that will change!
