I'm a little late posting week 4, but it still counts! Week 4 will forever be
known as the week I wandered around by myself taking photos at night. The brass
deer, you ask? Well they are from The White Pepper
and I love them more than words can say.
Missed the first 3 weeks? Here they are:
So I'm basically climbing the walls lately waiting to get into our own house and out of
this rental. I literally Googled "how to speed up time" the other day. Jeez, saving
money takes so long! To pass the time I decided to do up some mood boards for
design inspiration. This is my feminine, luxurious, inviting bedroom. The breakdown is
- I started with this soft, lovely duvet set from West Elm. It's a little more
colorful than it looks in that photo when you spread out the duvet and matching shams,
and it provides a nice color scheme to work off for the rest of the room.
- Since I love to mix neutrals, I chose a light gray for the walls instead of cream
which most people would expect. Mixing neutrals gives the room a more "money" look
and less typical. White trim and crown molding would make this wall color stand out.
- Next I went with these super lush, ruffled, velvet drapes in a bold teal. Nothing
says luxury like nice heavy curtains and it's great for blocking out light in a
- This pretty lamp in a lighter teal brings more color into the room and it reminds
me of a gem!
- A classic shaped chair in the corner in a bold purple provides some seating. Toss
a fluffy throw over the arm to make it even more cozy.
- This beautuful dresser from Anthropologie uses some of the pinks and oranges in the
linens so we don't get too bored with just purple and teal. Also, so pretty!!
- I'm continuing the purple and teal theme in the art and shapes in this one echo
the gem shaped lamp.
- The other print ties in some of the girly florals and keeps with the color scheme.
I would love to see these in matching ornate dark wood frames, maybe with a dark gray
- A thick, natural looking rug on the floor keeps bare feet from getting too cold
and agains add luxury. This would look great over a dark hardwood floor.
- This huge canopy bed fills some space and makes a statement. It also keeps the
room from getting too frilly and girly with it's clean lines. Start with crisp white
sheets on the bed.
- I think mis-matched side tables add a fun detail. Make sure they have at least
element in common, like the dark wood in this case, so it looks like you did it on

excuse to wear a faux fur wrap! Maybe I should just drape it over my hoodie on trips
to the grocery store.
