Gray vs. Grey

With all the hoopla of the house being worked on, I had forgotten that I needed to get my ass in gear to redo the master bedroom. It's funny, the old chocolate and navy had stopped working for me about 6 months ago. I picked out new curtains downtown (but haven't bought them yet) and had been quietly contemplating the drama of changing paint color. Don't get me wrong, I was always planning on hiring someone. But just rearranging stuff can be so trying. Well, it's been rearranged. So now on to the redesign.

Nice size, good scale. But perhaps a tad large for the space I'm working with.

I'm digging this look. But I'm not really ready for a mural.

I know it's not brown. It's not a bedroom. But it's so well put together!

Also not brown. But it's just a yummy look. I'm definitely considering matching his/his chandeliers instead of side lamps. I've already got them. (some images stolen from Michael Guy, thanks!)

So far what I know for certain, is I love these curtains:
Where do I go from here?

FYI, I am decorating vicariously through you, Jim, although when/if I finally get the go ahead to paint and redo our bedroom, I'm going with shades of blue (brown does not compliment my skin tone AT ALL).

I have no idea what to do with those curtains. I'd need to see them at large in your room to say anything sensible.

I just know I hate the fakey-wood-slat blinds in this place and I want Roman shades instead.

So, you decorate and post pictures so I can envy.

Those curtains are so glam and elegant. They definitely need to be complimented by his/his chandeliers in some way.

Maybe just a large pot of flowers from Zuber http://www.zuber.fr/

Where do you go from here? You tell me where that gorgeous room is in the first picture (the incredible art nouveau glass ceiling)

I'm sure whatever you end up with will be gorgeous.
