The title of this post may be confusing to some of you at the moment, but let me explain. In a nutshell, my bedroom is really small (9×10 or something), it’s not as small as a closet unless we’re talking about a walk-in closet. A bedroom of this size doesn’t leave too much room for items other than a bed, dresser and maybe a nightstand or two, but I’ve managed to fit a lovely chair in the corner.
As mentioned in the last post, I’ve been working on a moodboard to hopefully help me stay on task. This is what I have so far.
Of course, in true indecisive fashion, I’m not sure about any of these items other than what I already own. Wait I lied, I own most if not all of these items in a similar style other than the chevron vase, watercolor fashion print, fuchsia pillows and the floral pillow. The artwork is my main concern because I want a large size and that print is $76.00 for a 16×20, which would make it the most expensive purchase in my room. Time to get out some tutorials and work on my drawing and painting skills or lack thereof. Does anyone know where to purchase fuchsia pink velvet pillows? Do they not exist for a reasonable price? The ones pictured are $115 a piece and…yeah, no!
And just because I love to ask for the assistance of our lovely readers, I’ve included a sneak peek of what my room looks like as of now. Read more
Hello to all our lovely visitors! How’s everyone’s Friday so far? Hope you all are you getting a jump start to your weekend DIY projects. Me? Not at the moment. I’m a little under the weather.
Anyway, since Kah’s bedroom is starting to come together it was only right for me to show a little twin jealousy and
force ask her to help with my bedroom. And that started with buckling down on a color scheme.
Now we know that Turquoise is already in the room. But the color has changed from, turquoise and yellow, to turquoise and pink, then turquoise and purple, or all three of those colors, to now turquoise and navy. how did we decide on navy and turquoise you ask…well it started with pinterest of course.
Now I’ve seen navy and turquoise around a lot lately, but something about this outfit below spoke to me. Maybe it was the stripes. I really love any type of stripes in home decor.
Also loving the coral pink on her nails, should I add a little of that to my scheme? However, Kah would kill me if I changed it again.
Another reason I settled on Navy and Turquoise was because of this print seen over at Allposters.
I love anything Billie Holiday Art related. That flower was so iconic! I was so psyched that I was able to get a 27×40 poster for only $15.99. You guys know how hard it is to find large size art for cheap! I’m sure you do. Read more
As the title suggests, this should be a Moodboard Monday post, however I was anxious to finish this mood board for my bedroom. So just pretend that today is Monday and not Thursday night.
Back to my bedroom…it’s been a challenge to complete my room as well as this mood board. See, I’m really picky about the accessories that will be a main focus in my room. Right now, I have all white bedding, with white lamps, a white dresser and white nightstands. The large mirror above my bed is also white. I love the brightness of a mostly white color scheme, but I need some sexy colors in here! Let’s start with my favorite color…the lovely and always reliable Turquoise. I absolutely had to have this color in my room, no exceptions. So just a few weeks ago, Kah and I reupholstered this chair. Then I plan to add more bold and bright colors,like pink and yellows. What color is brighter than yellow? None, which is why it’s the color of the sun. Wow super corny and lame I know, just check out my mood board below.
Today I’m sharing with you a moodboard I created for my current bedroom. Like I’ve mentioned before, my bedroom is small, which means I have to be smart with the colors and furniture pieces I select. While I have to be cautious, that doesn’t mean I can’t incorporate something bold! And there’s no better way to go bold than painting my dresser teal. My design style is feminine glam- a clear indication that I am single… but, I’m all for balancing out all the feminine elements with a touch of masculinity. Check out the moodboard below.
