I’ve been really struggling with uninspiration lately. True uninspiration. Not just when you can’t get started decorating, or when you can’t find a muse but finding the right pieces, the right combination… the right everything! It’s like I have 20 different thoughts but none of them follow through to completion.
I’m currently working on a master bedroom mood board for Joy over at the Accidental Home Blog… you might remember the guest room mood board I made for her a while back. She sent me several fabulous photos of her blank slate… which includes white walls, bed, bedside tables a vanity and chair. Oh and her brand new spotlight sconces!
I love the vanity area and all the blank space! The part that’s stumping me? Making those little spotlight sconces that she loves part of the focal wall! She needs a big bold headboard… and the sconces need to be part of it! Since I’m lacking in inspiration I thought… why not hunt some down? So here’s part one of this little mood board quest… first stop? Inspiration!
For the back wall I’m thinking a reallllllllly tall headboard that can be a focal point of the entire room! While I love all the options number 1 is my favorite (that’s why it’s number 1 😉 ) It’s made of wood so it would be super easy to replicate… and the spotlights would clip neatly to the side allowing them to be part of the focal without trying to be the star of the show. I love the play of textures against each other so I think the rustic raw lumber of a wood headboard would play beautifully against some of the more modern, geometric elements in the room. Of course if Joy and her hubby don’t want a sky scraper headboard I found a couple other options… Like a leather tufted headboard (#5 but in black) with the spotlights bracketing some killer artwork. Use those spotlights to do what they were made for… spotlight a fantastic art piece! When the nights get cold and long all it take is a flick of the wrist to swivel those babies downward for a cuddle under warm blankets and a good book!
With white walls and white bedding we need a little bit of bold pattern elsewhere in the room… and my first instinct is to bring in color and pattern with a stunning carpet and drapes! I love the geometric print in Joy’s lamp shade so I carried it over to these fabulous airy blue geometric sheers… paired with gorgeous black blackout curtains the effect would be sophistication and whimsy. Stunning! The best part? Left open they say fun, airy, breazy and relaxing… but when the blackout curtains are pulled they say romantic and functional.
Who knew curtains could say so much?
The only thing missing in this room is a dresser… now I don’t know about y’all but I have way too many lonely mismatched socks to shove in the back of a sock drawer to go dresserless. (Yes dresserless is now a word 😉 ) Since Joy’s desk is black and her bed and side tables are very minimalist I would love to see a little pop of color in the dresser. I see a tall yellow dresser nestled right in between her two windows… a mixture of the tall yellow dresser below and the fun black geometric print rug would be fabulous. Plus a fun pop of pattern on the inside of the dresser drawers would add a little bit of fun!
Of course all that gorgeous white bedding will off set the patterned rug and the gauzy drapes will have just enough pattern to whisper. Leaving the dresser as the only real “pop” of color! Should be gorgeous! Tune in next week for the full mood board… which means my favorite part! All the little details!
In the meantime let me know what you’re thinking? What would you do in this room… do you love the direction it’s heading? Do you ever struggle with uninspiration?
