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,

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?

Checking in on our friends with the master bedroom remodel that I previously posted about here. Carpentry, flooring and paint are complete and we’re waiting on all of those glorious built-ins to make the dressing room and the project complete.
Last time we checked in we were at this point with temporary mantel brackets and no paint,
And all painted, wall color is Benjamin Moore Pale Smoke and the trim is Simply White. The sconces are the Reed Double Sconce from Visual Comfort, ordered here.
The lighting that we ordered to light the bookcases was a failure–too big. So we’re back to the drawing board there and we’re considering some different options, you can follow along with the selection process on this pinboard.
Custom closet doors that my carpenter Joseph Locklear built,
And here they are ready for hardware,

New flush mount ceiling fixture is installed, fixture is from Visual Comfort. All of the custom shelving has been painted Simply White. Not being very patient the homeowner has already started loading the shelves.
We’ll check back in when the cabinets are installed in the dressing room.
