I love imagining what the perfect room looks like to me. This idea of “perfect” constantly changes, since we all have that basic idea of what we like, but certain trends make an impact on us. Ideally I try and create a fairly neutral base in every room so that I can make inexpensive changes that impact the overall feel. I was really into white when we did the bedroom, and chose all white dressers and nightstands, which is a great blank canvas. I love it and can total work with it, but lately I’ve been craving a little bit of warmth in the form of natural wood. Something that isn’t heavy though, and still has a light airy feel. I love the nightstand below, it’s got that wood element but the marble top contrasts the darkness perfectly, keeping it light and fresh. While I am in NO position to re-do the bedroom right now (money doesn’t grow on trees) a girl can dream, don’t you think!? I am constantly finding new pieces that make my heart beat faster, so making inspiration boards like this one is a fun way to piece together my personal style! For now, here’s what I’m loving for my “perfect” bedroom. Imagine this; lots of natural light, an open airy layout, very subtle grey/white walls and these beautiful things.
That navy rug is so dramatic and cozy and pairs really well with natural wood. I have been eyeing navy for a while now, and trying to think of ways to incorporate it into my current space. The lamp is like killing two birds with one stone, it’s sculptural element adds interest to the space, and it obviously provides light. The dresser has an art deco feel which caught my eye and goes well with the nightstand. This big plush bed frame is so beautiful. My bed currently sits on a metal frame and I use large oversized pillows to act as a headboard. It looks awesome, don’t get me wrong, but I keep dreaming of a bed with a headboard and a baseboard like this one. Finishing off the whole look is a really fun piece of art. The colours are light and feminine and have a little navy in there that ties in perfectly with the rug, and the brass frame matches the lamp! Could you imagine waking up in here? I could. Anyone want to let me re-do their room instead?
