Today's blogtember challenge:
Make a mood board. Are you brainstorming a room re-do, or are you
dreaming of glamping with gal pals? Share a collage of any kind!
We just moved and are slowly unpacking the last little bits. We have a three bedroom, 3 bathroom, single story home for us and our two fur babies. One bedroom is obviously the master, which we just painted a slate blue with a gray accent wall. There are white and silver accents with gray ombre silk curtains. Eventually we'll upgrade to a king-sized bed with a matching bedroom set, but that's not a high priority.
One bedroom is currently a box fort, but will eventually be a nursery (in three to five years). I don't really like the guest bath that's closest to the box fort, but that's also not in our budget right now.
I do love my den. I've got a fuzzy shag carpet (that won't show snags from my fur babies) and a big window. I've got lots of bookcases in there and hope to soon put in an oversized lounge chair.
So with that dream space in mind, I made my polyvore mood collage:
Now, I'm a realistic person. White is the worst possible furniture choice, especially with seating. Not only would I get it dirty very quickly, B would or the kittens would do something to it. Plus I want to be a mom some day and white furniture screams canvas!
I do like the tranquil feel of this den. I like a decorative rug, but worry about spending so much money on something that will quickly be outdated. I am trying to steer away from trendy pieces, rather focusing on timeless investments. I love pillows, blankets, and book shelves. Amongst the chaos of back to school, I think I'm seeking a calm, peaceful place to escape. For me, that's usually books and a blanket.
I think I need to carve out some me time soon to just nest and read..
