This room isn’t a figment of my imagination. It is a gathering of thoughts for my guest bedroom. You will notice that I did not mention a headboard or dresser. I have both of these pieces already that will be repurposed. While we are still a ways away from getting our room ready for finishing touches (we still need to drywall) it has been fun to imagine what direction it can take. Stay tuned to see how close the finished design matches the inspiration.
So without further ado, here is my slightly beach inspired guest bedroom mood board:
I chose Sherwin-Williams 6246 North Star for the paint color. I love the grey neutral that makes color pop. This color is also light enough that it will really brighten up the room.
Another Sherwin-Williams color Walnut Wainscoting (Wood Classic oil base stain, you can view the details here) is what we picked for the floor when we moved in. I am not redoing the floors in this room, so we are going to work with what we have.
A nice gray rug grounds the room, love the pattern.
Breezy white curtains, with a touch of yellow to tie it in as an accent color, and the grey connects it to the other pieces. There will need to be some sort of shade behind this, either a bamboo or blackout.
The bedspread was the first thing I picked out after the paint color. The teal chevron design makes a statement and also leans towards the beachy vibe I was going for.
A cute little storage ottoman with a sweet yellow design will be a great place to hide an extra blanket and also act as a place to stack items next to the bed.
I have a thing for this pendant light. The vision I have requires rewiring a plug and switch to it so it can hang over the bed. Sort of an upscale table lamp, it will bring your eye up and also provide a reading light.
Decorative touch to add art to the room, the metal and wood ties in well with the beach theme. I see black and white pictures of shells or waves in this.
I really like the idea of these pieces. They are a great inspiration.
I hope you enjoyed the mood board. I really enjoy creating these. However, a real room is much more fun. Having to deal with existing features (rug has to stay, weird lay out, can’t get a new sofa, etc.) or a person’s personal preference (hate the color green, really like fish, etc.) makes the design more challenging. So, if you have a room you are stuck on, or would just like a fresh set of eyes, contact Our Wolf Den. I would love to help. I need at least a few pictures of the room, the rough dimensions of the room, any furniture that has to stay, what you don’t like, and what style you are looking for, and I will do my best.
