Too often, at least for me, things are pinned to pinboard on my Pinterest page and never looked at again. I have specific pinboards for different rooms in our future home. One for the kitchen, one for the master bedroom, one for Wyatt, even one for the laundry room.
And even within specific boards, I can see a slow progression from one style of decorating to another. When we first started building, I wanted everything white. White trim, white cabinets, white sofas (slip-covered, but seriously—Wyatt would love to destroy that), and even white curtains. Since then, I’ve become a bit addicted to DIY blogs (YHL, BowerPower, iHeart are some of my favorites). And because of these people sharing their homes with the inter-web, I’ve realized that chances can be taken while decorating your home. Mistakes can be made. And its nobody’s business but your’s what color you paint your front door.
Because let’s be honest, you’re the one who looks at it day in and day out. Who cares what they think?
Anywho… in trying to remember what I have planned for rooms in our home, I’ve tried to pull together key elements and place them into moodboards.
If you don’t frequent blogs (I’m not sure how anyone can’t read them… they’re wonderfully addictive, you need to get on that), a moodboard is a gathering of images, swatches, furniture pieces, etc. placed into one image, usually accompanied by a source list. It compiles all ideas for a room into one image, making it possible to see how different fabrics and textures will play together either nicely or not so nicely.
So, since my madre recently gifted us a bedroom suite (|), I thought I should create a moodboard so I don’t flounder when it comes time to decorate the room!
So there you have it, my plan for the bedroom. The furniture is the stuff I mentioned above, the quilt is from Target, one we’ve had for a while. And the flooring, well, I’m DIYing that.
Happy Wednesday everyone!
