What's Your Style Series: The Bedroom


Welcome back for the last round of the What's Your Style Series!
 So far we have covered the living area and the kitchen, and we wrap it up with the bedroom.  I have been struggling with this space for years, but my bedroom is about as finished as it will ever get.  
So what is my style here?
I'd have to say Preppy / Eclectic...
I painted the walls Brittany Blue by Ben Moore for a calm backdrop,
and then added a lot more blue and navy.  We recently upgraded to a king size bed and got the navy linen headboard is from Home Decorator's Collection.  I will never go back to a hard wooden headboard after having an upholstered one... I'm a klutz and would always sit back and bang my head, so I consider this an investment in my brain cells.



I just scored these mid-century dressers at an estate sale.  They were suppose to go in my office, but I liked how they toned this room down.  I use to have white Malms in their place, but it looked almost too polished and sterile.  I feel like these throw off the preppy vibe and add interest.

I covered my lampshades in a John Robshaw fabric.
Lots of patterns going on, but they are all in the same color family to keep it more restful.
I also painted my old white Ikea drapes a la Wearstler...
I have been trying to add more color since that is what I always do and I just can't help myself.
Restraint isn't my friend.
I have been sneaking it in with art work...

and I have tested out a zillion pillow combos... 
magenta lavender...
and I've been moving art around...
but while I liked it in vignettes, the whole picture got tooooo busy.
Not restful, and that was my initial goal for this room....
so I went back to square one for calm...
Oh, and I can't forget this new addition... 
Scored this baby at Homegoods of all places!  
I never find ceiling fixtures there, so I grabbed it.

I also just found these little birds at Crate & Barrel's Outlet store for $1.99 each.
Love them!


And just to keep it real and let you know that my room NEVER looks like this, 
here is a reality shot of the wall across from my bed... 
LAUNDRY HELL and PILES!
That poor chair rarely sees the light of day!

Lovely - that light fixture is great and this room looks so calm and soothing. I am curious where you found those white lamps? Thanks!

I love everything about this room. I agree I like the more calm pillows the best. And the chests are absolutely perfect. It adds a warm element and makes it sing. And your art. Can we please just take a moment to talk about that? I am in serious love. You are so awesome!
