When trying to decide the look that I wanted for our bedroom I searched through magazines, catalogs, stores, and of course online. I kept the pictures of rooms or elements of the room that I liked. Now going back through all of the inspiration pictures I have found out alot of information...like what colors I'm drawn to, what style of furniture, what color of furniture, how I want the room to feel, the look of the bedding, etc...
Can you see what the common elements are?
Here is what I found out from the inspiration pics;
I really like the color combination of aqua, tan, and white/cream
I really like the mix of painted distressed wood furniture with stained furniture
I really like different textures..rattan, wicker
I really like clean, simple lines of a platform style bed
I really like a mix of pillows
So now that I know what I'm drawn to I will find a bed in a medium wood stain (needs to match the wood in our sitting room/office which is attached to our master bedroom. I will look for 2 distressed cream color nightstands (preferrably Gentleman's chest...as they are bigger) Need all the storage we can get!
I would love to get a chair like the one in the photo but not sure I have room for a chair in the bedroom. I will buy a off white/cream duvet cover for our down comforter.
I think I will paint the walls a tan like in the first photo. I will get aqua pillows & look for a striped pillow that has the aqua, tan, & off white in it. I will accessorize with rattan/wicker. I LOVE vases so I'll have to get a few aqua ocean glass jugs/vases. Something like these but in aqua. (I've seen them at TJ Maxx)
Will buy rattan blinds for the window and either do aqua or cream drapery panels. Of course will throw in some black & white beach photos in black frames with white matting. Gotta have a few strategically placed seashells around and may even make a custom rug for the new room.
What do ya think??
