I'm not sure whether you are going to do the upholstery yourself or have it done professionally. If you're DIYing it and you've never reupholstered before, I've heard that velvet is really tricky. Apparently it's stretchy and temperamental, plus you have to keep all the pieces going the same direction because of the nap. I'm actually looking for fabric for a reupholstery DIY myself, and I like fabric.com's selection. If you're having a professional do it, she/he should be able to source the fabric you want for you.

@ lindseyh84: My husband tosses and turns a lot at night. It got so bad when he got a promotion last year (he worries too much) that I was really only sleeping after he left in the morning. I would spend hours each night being kept awake by the transferred movement in our queen-size el cheapo spring bed, occasionally waking him by yelling because he had woken me AGAIN just as I was drifting off. Every time I brought up how horrible I felt from lack of sleep, he would get upset because he couldn't imagine having separate beds. Eventually, though, I told him that we HAD to do something. No questions, I deserve to sleep too. I convinced him that he was clinging to the superstition that separate beds meant we had no intimacy. So we traded our queen for two twins pushed together a few months ago, and it saved my sanity. I now realize that being so close to him and his furnace-like body heat was also disturbing me. When we first moved in together some of our sleeping habits changed, but I'll always be a light sleeper. Clearly our marriage hasn't dissolved, so he's happy too. The only issue we have is that extracurricular...activities tend to result in the beds separating lol.

Curtains could be much cheaper than custom blinds or shades, if that's a consideration for you.

If you have animals: essential oils are harmful to cats - they can absorb them through the skin or breathe them in, and their livers are not able to process them like ours. I love essential oils but don't use them because I have a kitty.
