Fabulous Bedrooms

April 5, 2012

I can’t believe it’s been almost two months since I did a post on bedrooms! I guess that’s what happens when you’re reduced to only posting once a week because of school. We are in the home stretch here though. Three weeks from now I will be donezo.

If you’d talked to me yesterday I might have expressed the mounting stress associated with that three week time frame, but today I actually feel much better. In class last night I managed to get a big important step of my final project completed. I also had a super encouraging conversation with my professor. She repeatedly used the phrase, “You could do anything,” which made me feel pretty dang good. I explained to her how I’m not sure what to do next with this whole proposed foray into the interiors field and she was very encouraging and helpful.

Alright enough about me. Let’s look at some sweet bedrooms!

They’ve done a great job of mixing traditional furniture pieces with contemporary colors and patterns. The home of Karen Bertelsen, photographed by Donna Griffith for Style At Home.

I adore the deep blue-violet color of this bedspread. Headboards are nice but not imperative. What a lovely gallery wall as well. The frames are all different sizes, but they form a cohesive and pleasing group because of the repeated golden frames as well as similar subject matter. You certainly don’t have to use all the same color for your frames nor the same type of artwork, but it’s a good option if you’d like to keep things looking basically uniform and intentional. Photographed by Petra Bindel via From Scandinavia with love.

Dark walls, pink, and neon orange are three current love affairs of mine. So there you have it. Photographed by Mel Yates, via Abigail Ahern.

I know I’ve said before that I like walls that look a little decrepit, but these ones are not doing it for me. Maybe my tastes are changing? Or maybe this just looks too much like water damage. That trio of pendant lights however, is totally doing it for me. Styled by Stella Nicolaisen via desire to inspire.

I enjoy four-poster beds, especially the simple sleek ones without a frilly valance. But one in which the frame is gilded in gold?! Be still my heart. The home of architect and interior designer Daniel Romualdez, photographed by Roger Davies for Architectural Digest, via Savvy Home

 Oh how I love dark muted tones of blue. That headboard is fabulous. I think it might actually be black fabric, but it totally reads as blue in this photograph and I’m alright with that. Photographed by Petra Bindel, via Breaking Down The Big, Beige Box.

The simple, textural masculinity of this shot is just awesome. Okay the dress form is not all that masculine but it provides some nice balance. The home of prop and fashion stylist Rosy Strazzeri-Fridman, via Design*Sponge.

When I bookmarked this photo I included the caption, “Yes, please. Over and over again.” Translation: I like it a lot. While I find the wall color quite dull, everything else about this room is fab. Photographed by Sue Stubbs via Style At Home
