Remodelaholic Mood Board

Recently, Cassity of Remodelaholic asked if we wanted to take part in a mood board extravaganza, of sorts.

Do you see how many other inspiring bloggers have joined in this party?  We’re tickled pink to be a part of this fantastic group.  Basically, we’re sharing an inspiration room, this week featuring the room where all the magic (design magic, don’t be dirty) happens, the master bedroom.

We found our inspiration room on, where else, Pinterest.

For a room with a similar look, try out this mood board:

We believe a master bedroom should be a mix of masculine and feminine, carefully balanced to represent both people using the space.  By mixing graphic patterns such as stripes and quatrefoil, soft, billowy fabrics, metal and hardwood, we’ve achieved a look that men and women can like.  Kind of like Heidi Klum or Ryan Reynolds.

The paneled wall treatment, painted white, serves as a neutral backdrop, but adds architectural interest to any room.  Dark stained hardwood floors are handsome, durable and classic, but can be a little hard under foot.  The striped rug softens and cozies up the room.  A capiz lotus chandelier overhead softly glows, providing ambiance.  And, it’s a stunning, feminine fixture.

Soft Suzani fabric would make beautiful floor to ceiling, feminine curtains, whether sewn or hem taped.  The playful pattern adds a punch while still feeling restful due to the soothing colors.

Home made Scrabble letter art is easy and cheap to make, but still personal.  As a bonus, it is a cute way to define his and hers side of the bed.  To make the art feel less cutesy, exchange the heart for a modern + symbol.  For another feminine touch, hang butterfly shadow boxes on either side of the bed, just above the nightstand.  Oil rubbed bronze task lamps are pretty and function as task lighting, prefect for reading.  Top the nightstand off with a stack of books, a pretty vase and an alarm clock.

DIY upholstered nail head trim headboard (or this one from West Elm) is simple and classic, allowing other items in the room to shine.  Bold graphic printed pillows tossed on the bed add comfort and style to a white pintuck duvet cover.

  4. Love, love the blinds/curtains and light fixture! These would look great in my bedroom! Question for you on Pinterest – how did you get signed up? I have requested an invitation a couple of times, but either have not received one (boohoo) or maybe my junk mail filter blocked it??

    1. Hi Erin,

      I’m glad you like it. I think the light fixture is amazing, too. I’ll send you a Pinterest invite soon.
