My friend and neighbor Rachel, who blogs at Grasping for Objectivity, is in the market for a master bedroom renovation. Rachel says that while she has great furniture, she isn’t in love with the wall color, bedding, or accessories. I love a good design challenge, so after taking a look at Rachel’s Pinterest idea board, I put together a design board for her. Rachel is a no-nonsense, low-frill kind of girl, so I knew better than to add in a lot of foo-foo. Her criteria were simple:
She wanted to use her existing furniture, which is nice black wood.
She wanted to add in a little icy blue or gray.
She likes graphic patterns, as opposed to florals.
She wants the room to feel calm, light, and “vacation-y”.
Here’s what I came up with for Rachel and her husband Chris:
Sure, there are few taste-specific accessories thrown in for fun. I mean, it’s no secret that not everyone can pull off a Tivoli bust or a chrome deer head. But they’re fun and add a bit of whimsical personality to the room, which definitely fit Rachel and Chris. And besides, they could easily be switched out for a less adventurous choice.
What do you think?
