It’s time to start thinking about where everyone is going to sleep and turning the room where you’ve been opening the door and just throwing stuff in, in to a real place where people could sleep. Once at the accessory level, I’d suggest this little guy,
In my search for a small sconce for a tight space to put over Laney’s bed in her big girl room, I kept seeing these modern sconces sometimes paired with a slightly traditional look in the rest of the room. The introduction of the modern sconce in these rooms is one little piece of the puzzle that makes the room a little more eclectic, it gets at that magical mix that everyone is after…including me.
Looks like the same mid-century inspired fixture in these rooms,
Here’s what I call the eyeball fixture,
The lucite/acrylic bedside cart is a repeat performer as a bedside table.

I’m pretty sure Amber used this sconce in this little guy’s room that she designed,
“After I get finished with my big girl bed, then I’m gon’ get a boy bed”
These are the types of conversations I have with my 2-year old daughter Laney about her future transition to a big girl bed. She thinks it’s fun to kid with me about wanting a “boy bed”. We are preparing to move Laney to a different room in the house but the room needs a little work before we can do that. I’ll be sharing that room tune up after we begin the work but today I wanted to share my inspiration for the room and a rough plan.

And here’s a little design board I worked up for the room,
Feist / Dresser / suzani / hooks / sconce / headboard / sheets / quilt / bed / blanket / stool / fabric / rug
For some the standard issue down comforter, Star Wars and Bob Marley posters and Dad’s old recliners are being traded in for something a little more sophisticated.
Here’s my take on it,
1. Blanket 2. Mirror 3. Trunk 4. hook 5. dresser 6. shade 7. lamp 8. box 9. fan
10. Cloud print 11. chair 12. pillow 13. headboard 14. guitar hook 15. table 16. spheres 17. Persian 18. Jute rug
You guys might remember roommate Kate as my beloved apartment mate back at the treehouse. When we agreed to move in together, I had but one stipulation and that was that she allow me to make ALL of the home decor decisions. She agreed. She started out with a shortage of opinions in the design of our apartment, but soon evolved into an active participant in the process. She has since blossomed into a full fledged design lover and an avid home decor blog and shelter magazine consumer just like the best of us.
When she reached out for some help on her design for her new and super cute little cottage of an dwelling in Brentwood, I was happy to oblige. She wants her bedroom to feel feminine and soft… sweet with a bit of bling and she’s totally tired of her previous turquoise color scheme. She’s feeling coral these days. So, I took a crack at an inspiration board. What do you think?
