Stylish Master Bedroom

We really are into some serious planning for the construction of the dream house at the moment. Actual construction may not begin until later in the year because, as you can imagine ALOT of planning needs to occur before anything on this large scale can begin.
We will be tackling this as owner/builders.
There are quotes to obtain & products to source.
Most importantly, the bank has said "go for it" & given us a list of what they require to finance us as owner builders.

The dream guy is good at this sort of thing having project managed many large scale electrical jobs as a part of his business, so really all I need to do is plan the pretty stuff. We are both very visual people so I do need to provide images of my expectations of the finished product.
I am wanting some sort of pendant light or small chandelier as bedside lighting instead of lamps & I thought these images are a great representation of that idea, especially the first pic as we will have windows either side of our bed as well!

I have a little silver table just like this one which I would like sitting next to a feature chair in my bedroom

Once again the bedside windows, I have a similar shaped bedhead to this only in timber.
The round mirror in this image is pretty fabulous don't you think?
Hopefully once the house is complete there will be a few dollars left to buy some new accessories & update some of our furniture...depends on how much self control we have when selecting those fixtures & fittings I suppose !!!
If there is one thing I have learn't over time from blogging " details are important "
 Get the details right & you get a really beautiful end product.
I will be asking your advise as I go along just to be sure I get it right!!
Are you all about the details?
