The One With the Grown Up Girl's Bedroom: Bold and Sophisticated

I mentioned earlier that we moved into a new house. And I am loving decorating it. Not so much loving having to find a place for everything, but it is coming together slowly. We live in this new house with a roommate, Allison. Or, as Ellie likes to call her, Assesor. Assesor wanted some inspiration for her new big girl (as in college graduate) room, which she is basing off this Cherry Blossom Duvet from Pottery Barn. She has also purchased this Avington Headboard from Target, which I didn't include in the moodboards but did keep in mind while creating them.

The first idea I came up with is a little more bold and sophisticated, and incorporates several design elements she has already decided upon. 
I like the idea of introducing some less girly, more classic colors to the room to compensate for the very soft and sweet bedding. I think pops of romantic red, like in the clock and sheets would be a nice touch. I chose the brass lamp and bedside table to bring back a little feminity, and because I think the gold undertones would be fantastic next to that bedding. An ink blue chair and some accent pillows would look smart and strong, and would pick up the darker tones of the bedding quite nicely. Because the bedding and furniture have so much color going on, I would stick to a gallery wall of black-and-white photography to keep things from getting too crazy. I would get some of the pictures from artists I like on Etsy, but I would also frame up pictures of family and friends.

  1. Cherry Blossom Organic Duvet Cover from Pottery Barn
  2. Somnig Sheet Set in Dark Red from Ikea
  3. Vintage Floor Lamp in Brass from Urban Outfitters
  4. Madeline Chair in Navy from Urban Outfitters
  5. Brass Leaf Side Table from Urban Outfitters
  6. Black and White Vintage Camera and Typewriter Photographs from Marianne LoMonaco on Etsy
  7. Monogrammable Outdoor Pillow in Navy with Lettering in Sandalwood from Pottery Barn
  8. On Time Wall Clock in Red from Urban Outfitters
  9. Vilshult Picture of Amsterdam from Ikea
I think it would be a fun bedroom for a big girl. Don't you?
Check back on Thursday for another moodboard designed around this duvet!
