I don’t know about you, but sometimes I get really fuggin bored at work. Ive developed a slight addiction in the process of trying to make the hours pass by more quickly. This addiction is hypothetical bedroom designing. Let me take a minute to explain.
My cousin Ellen, author of this adorable fashion/lifestyle blog, The Perennial Style, got me hooked to this site, Polyvore, that she uses to make all of her fashion collages. You’ve seen them. But I bet you weren’t aware of how much fuggin’ fun they are to make. Here is an example, courtesy of my darling cousin’s blog.
Ok, get the picture?? I am not the most fashionable person, but I LOVE rearranging my bedroom. Sometimes, I get a little overwhelmed when trying to imagine a room holistically. I find individual pieces that I love but when I put them all together, it never quite looks right. SO, I started arranging things that I liked on Polyvore and it totally got me inspired and excited to update my room.
In the past, I have been really bad about having color scheme A.D.D. My room basically looked like a bunch of bold accents exploded all over the place. So I decided to simplify and stick to a few colors as opposed to MANY.
I would first like to say that my all time favorite store is West Elm. LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE! They have the perfect amount of contemporary in all of their designs and I just cant get enough. The theme of my new room is going to be mid-century modern with a little flaresky. And it all started because of this dresser.
I decided that I wanted to have all of my furniture white and mid-century modern style so that my color A.D.D would have a lot of flexibility to run wild. I already had a pretty, bold ikat chair with matching pillows that I bought two years ago.
Here is where Ellen came in. I was playing around with a few ideas for my new room and BAM, polyvore happened. This is when the addiction flared up and I started imagining hypothetical bedrooms all day long. I can’t stop!!! Below is what I envisioned for my bedroom.
And these are ones I did instead of working!
Goodluck getting anything done today!!!!
