A Dreamy Bedroom

Earlier this week, I guest posted at Shauuna’s site Satori Design for Living.  If you missed it, I decided to post it here ~ since I set it mistakenly to post on my own site today!  Ha!:)  During Shaunna’s “Design Challenge” assignment, I also learned how to use Olioboard, which I wrote about here.  Have a wonderful Saturday!


Shaunna’s design challenge has been so much fun!  She presented these three headboards and asked me to pick one and design a room around it.

1.  The Alta Headboard by Serena & Lily

2.  Scrolled and Tufted Headboard found at Decorator Tag Sale

3.  Pavillion Headboard by Zinc Door

I chose the Alta Headboard by Serena & Lily.  I loved the classic look with the nail head detail  and couldn’t get over the huge choice of beautiful fabrics and patterns.  I set out to design a bedroom that I would love if finances weren’t any issue.  Oh, what fun that is!  My dream bedroom would be classic, warm, and rustic ~ with just a little bit of bling.  Since I really love the idea of having my dream bedroom situated where I could see the ocean waves out its spacious windows, I’m calling this one “Beach Cottage Bling”.

Paired with fluffy white linens and casual striped sheets, the wheat linen Alta headboard becomes the star of the show.   Of course, having a beautiful, sparkly chandelier over head  would help point that out!

I can just imagine relaxing on a Sunday afternoon in that comfy chair and snuggling up in that dreamy throw blanket with a good book and a cup of coffee .

I’m enjoying the new wall paper options these days, and this one adds some neat pattern and texture to the room.  If you don’t want the expense of wallpaper, you could get the same look for a fraction of the price with a stencil like this.  In fact, I just used it in my entryway!

Accents in dark chocolate brown and black adds warmth and character to the room, and the aqua blue in the rug, pillows, and throw adds the perfect pop of beachside color.

Thank you, Shauna, for the opportunity to design a dream room!
