This week, there was a challenge in store for me. This challenge wasn't like last week's where I chose two colors and made something uniquely beautiful out of it. Rather, I took on the task of designing a room that I never tried designing before. Welcome to my first bedroom moodboard.
If you haven't realized this yet from looking at my last two designs, I'm kind of in love with the idea of plants in homes. Adding greenery is a great way to bring some of the soothing effects of nature into an interior space. This week, I went a tiny bit overboard on the amount of greenery that I used, but I feel like it makes the reading nook in the bedroom a great and calming place to relax before bed. I found the succulent pillow above while sourcing last week and knew that I needed to use it soon. The combination of plants on the bookshelf (both green and brass) along with the succulent pillow ties the theme together nicely.
This bed frame and headboard combo was the first item that I sourced for this week; the pink, navy, and orange sung to me. Though these colors aren't usually the ones that I tend to gravitate toward, this piece was beautiful enough to base the colors in the room around. Because I chose to have patterns in the rug, bed frame, and headboard, it was an easy choice to keep the bedding and curtains simple as to not draw too much attention from the main colors in the room. The accent pieces in the room are all antique brass or wood. The greige flooring and white brick walls made a great neutral canvas to help showcase the bold colors chosen for this room.
Tired of me talking about how beautiful this room is yet? Well, this is the board you've been looking for:
All I have left to say is that my boxes are packed up and I'm ready to move in. Stay tuned for next week's mood board for more original designs by yours truly.
