Room for Style: Let’s Get Inspired to Decorate
Let’s Get Inspired
When I start on a new project I like to to get inspired. This guest bedroom design we worked around an iron bed. This particular customer’s taste was eclectic, and I wanted their guests to feel comfortable staying in this room. So I start searching…

First, I fell in love with this bedding from West Elm (Spring Blossom). It’s grey, taupe and plum pattern was my inspiration for the entire room. Next, I started to pull ideas to dress the windows, I created a design that consisted of a custom box pleat valance that will hang over pinch pleat drapes. I found the perfect striped fabric for the panels and used a solid fabric for the valance. Last I selected Benjamin Moore “Hint of Violet” as my wall color.

At this point the walls, windows & actual bed looked great, but the room needed some additional furniture. I found a chest at a small furniture store that had a grey washed finish. Then added two different bed side tables in the same finish topped with a more contemporary lamp on each. I finished up by adding a comfortable chair in the corner and pulled the room together with a large textured area rug.

Decorating an empty room is not an easy task, that’s why I recommend getting inspired! I would suggest looking through a few magazines and see if you find a style you like, look through your closet for your favorite outfit to pull a color scheme together, take a walk through the home department in a store and see if something catches your eye. You can create a whole room around one item, such as a pillow, an area rug or a piece of art. Just relax and enjoy the process. The most important thing to remember is, it’s all about you, your lifestyle and the function of the room!
