As it turns out, all those magazine tear sheets I've been saving for years came in handy for inspiration (I find Pinterest to be overwhelming). After a browse through bedroom inspiration photos, it became clear that this young lady has a penchant for soft greys and crisp whites, with a hint of gold for sparkle, and perhaps a dash of chartreuse. Here is the room inspiration:
We've already chosen a soft grey tufted linen headboard with brass tacks, selected paint colours, ordered a stencil for the feature wall and picked up a thrifted dresser (currently undergoing a makeover). The light fixture has been elusive so far, but I have an auction bid in on an amazing pair of bedside tables (check out the brass pagoda hardware). This room is coming together fast & furious (& fabulous)!!
