Bedroom Inspiration/Idea Board

Okay, so as you all may remember from this post I decided to "retire" this bedroom decor we had used since we first got married almost 9 years ago.  I was just ready for something different.

I shared how I felt inspired by the photos below and thought that was the direction I wanted to go in.

Well.............I think I've changed my mind.  I'm just not positive I can pull that look off to my satisfaction, plus, I love me some color and that just wasn't cuttin' it. 

The trend right now seems to be a lot of neutrals...very relaxing.....calming.....even romantic, with touches of the very popular Robin's Egg blue/Aqua.  While I think those types of rooms are very pretty, they just don't "speak to me."  I want something bright and happy, something different from the norm.....something funky and vintagey.

But I've been at a complete loss for months now trying to figure out what I want.  I had a vague idea that was forming from the picture below.  I found it in either BHG or Good Housekeeping, can't remember which, but I loved all the color and the mixture of patterns.

But I  just couldn't picture in my head what our room would look like.

Finally, one evening I got out Halie's colored pencils and just began to sketch.  (Trust me, it looked like Halie had done them, helped!)  I finally came up with a plan, and the next day I began to Google images and I put together an idea/inspiration board.

And here's what I came up with. 
 (Keep in mind, I did some cut and paste and layering of images I had Googled, so just mentally block out that guitar in the corner and the brass lamp behind "my" lamp.)
So this is the direction I'm leaning.  Whadda ya think?

  1. I think it's perfect! I'm assuming you are doing it all on a budget as well? I can't wait to see what you come up with!

    Many Blessings,
