If you have visited my blog in the past few months you have heard me go on and on about the new house we just built. It was a huge project and I did a couple posts about it. Firstly I did a similar inspiration post for my bathroom and recently I did a tour of the finished product. If you are interested in those I will link them here and here. Today I will be walking you through my design ideas for my new bedroom. I am going for a mid-century modern look with some lux and feminine touches, sounds confusing? let`s walk through it so I can better explain my vision.
Starting off with the bed area , I am loving this shade of navy/emerald blue and even tough it looks quite dark my room has a huge window with a loot of light so I think it can handle one wall in this shade. I plan on painting the wall which has my bed this statement color and leaving the rest white. I knew from the get go I wanted a grey upholstered bed, in a linen fabric not leather. Above the bed I really want these fashion sketches which I found in a local store. I think they will add that feminine touch I want, without going too far. The bedside table will be an ode to mid-century modern design, kind off wird looking but I love it. The color scheme I want to add with my accessories is dark emerald blue &green as well as some subtle gold.
I will also have a nice reading/ relaxing corner with this huge chair I found at IKEA . I just tought the color was spot on and it is also really comfy. Next to the chair I wanted a little side table , and I really love these almost drum shaped metal ones.
The wardrobe was probably the biggest head ache for me. I just don’t like the look of them, but since I didn`t have a built-in I had to find something. I saw these Ikea PAX doors and I fell in love. They are an almost satin finish black, very modern and look so much more expensive than they were. The room is quite vast so I really want a nice big braided rug. It will be a huge investment so it will have to come later on.
I definitely wanted a full length mirror, I really love those intricate almost baroque style mirrors but I knew that style wouldn`t go with my mid-century modern room so I had to really search for something with the same impact but with a more modern twist. What I loved about this one was the interesting shape, subtle but effective and that the gold edge goes with the rest of the room. On the same wall I position my mirror I want to do a mix matched gallery wall , another long-term project since I want to gather different shapes and styles of frames and other decorations.
I would really love your input on the ideas and design , please feel free to tell me in a comment what you like what you don`t some ideas on what you would do differently. I really want to get this right. Thanks!!!!
