Interior Inspiration and Girls Room Redo.

WHAT A ROOM! There is a lot to love here. Color and texture and pattern oh my!

My current project is…you guessed it. The Girls bedroom. I’ve touched on my inability to be “done” decorating any particular space. You remember the playroom, right? With ever-changing trends, color palettes, my propensity for change and our family’s evolving needs, no room in our home will ever be designed and decorated for eternity. It would be emotionally, philosophically and even physically impossible for me to paint a wall, arrange furniture just so, select the perfect textiles and then leave a space never to be tweaked again. As much as I have come to love routine in the day to day (thanks kids) I need aesthetic movement. Not to be confused with THE Aesthetic Movement of the 19th century which championed beauty for the sake of beauty rather than as an aside to form and function as had been the case. I digress. The point is, I like to modify my surroundings. I am inspired by both beauty and variety. My concept of what is beautiful and visually pleasing constantly shifts but I always want my environment to reflect those perceptions. Kids thrive on routine and mom, that’s me, can’t function with out visually shaking things up every now and again. Moving furniture, hanging new art,  painting a wall getting or a new rug are not things that are going to have a ripple effect on the global community but each feeds a desire in me to create a vision and make it a reality. I get juiced looking at pretty things. Manipulating those inspirations into something tangible and personal is ultimately rewarding but the process can be challenging. Let’s start with the fun part! Pretty pictures.  I’ve captioned my virtual tear sheets with the specific items or elements that caught my eye for the girls bedroom. Enjoy!

ANY OF THESE RUGS WILL DO THANKS.

 

Thankful for: Having a home to decorate.

Wanting: To find the perfect elements within my budget and knock this project out of the park!

I’ve learned: Slow and steady wins the race.

Head on over to my Pinterest board to see more (yes, there is more and lots of it) for photo credits and links to original sites. These people deserve their props.

  1. Love this! Make sure to do a before and after pic (I am such a sucker for those). We’re thinking of doing a big kid/little kid room transition in our 50s-style modern house next month and your pins are just what I need to get my transformation thinking gear on. I do love a mix of modern and vintage.
