Hello dears! Remember in my previous post I told you about my plans of painting the focal wall of my boring all white bedroom wall black? Well, I have been thinking and deciding how to go about it. Because I don't want just a black and white room, that feels like it would be a it too cold. I do want the room to feel warm and stylish and feminine. I'm bringing sexy back into the room! I've been roaming the internet for ideas and I've come across some gorgeous things! I've done some shopping and I'm so excited about getting this room done now. I've created an inspiration board and I wanted to share with you the look I'm going for:
print of the Chanel No.5 painting by Anne Harwell *yay* and this became the inspiration for the rest of the look for the bedroom. Like I said, the focal will be painted black. The other walls I'm painting a very light sand color. I was looking for a tie dye cushion in black and white and then came across this fabulous aztec tie dye pillow, fell in love and bought it right away. I love the colors and they work well with the Chanel No.5 print I bought. I didn't want things to get too girly, so I decided to go for a cool industrial look for the bedside lamps and bought two bronze wall lamps that I'll be placing above the bed. I'm thrilled about this find because design lamps in this look cost at least three times more! In Stockholm I bought two 'floating' book holders that will make your stack of books look like they're floating. Cool, huh? I'm still browsing on Marktplaats (which is the Dutch version of Craigslist) for a wooden colonial looking chest to use as a night stand, like the image above. No luck so far. But the search goes on. And I'm thinking of buying a bamboo lamp for the ceiling, but I'm not sure yet. So, what do you think so far? I'd love to hear.
