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, BUT.......it 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?
