{inspired by a bouquet...}

Every blog needs its first post right?  It's a little intimidating & a bit overwhelming to be honest.  With so many ideas and thoughts running through my mind, I'm not exactly sure where to start.
I don't think I have ever designed a space without some form of inspiration, whether its the colors found in a bouquet of flowers, or the texture of a seashell, or the melancholy of a painting, inspiration is literally everywhere, & I love the challenge of using that inspiration to style a space.  Inspiration isn't just about designing around a piece of furniture or matching decor to a paint color, its about finding something that inspires the overall feeling of the spaces you live in.  This is what I L.O.V.E. about inspired design!

Inspired by a bouquet...  its not just about being inspired by the amazing shades of teal and coral.  Look closer & you begin to see a vintage feel found in the color combination & lace accents.  There is a chicness found in the delicate "messiness" of the natural shape of the flowers & an overall timeless feeling of the arrangement.  Here is how I incorporated the inspiration into a bedroom...

Using classic pieces of furniture, splashes of coral and a pale teal, I created a space with a not too grown up vintage vibe.  Black and white accents found in the artwork, lighting and flooring lend to the timeless feeling of the room, while the look is completed by utilizing the natural light and open space of the architecture.  Simplicity is the key to success in this room.  By allowing the color to flow freely throughout the space and using a few standout pieces of furniture, the room is left with a simplicity that is intriguing & inviting.
So there you have it... the bouquet inspired bedroom.

What kind of inspiration did you use to style your bedroom?
