Art Inspired Mood Board

Our master bedroom is pretty blah and in need of color and lots of inspiration. I checked out to get my creative juices flowing. is the world’s largest online auction marketplace with several choices of fine art to browse through. I searched through several of the paintings, and found the painting below. The colors are striking and I was drawn to all of the texture. Gorgeous, right!

Striking color and texture is something our master bedroom definitely needs. I also have to keep in mind that my husband gives me “the look” every time I show him something floral or “too girly” as he puts it.  So, this bedroom design needs to be masculine, but still fill some of my girly flair. Here is the space I came up with.

The color palette for this space was inspired from the painting. The wall color I kept soft to contrast the bold furniture and rug. I wanted to use a lot of different texture in this bedroom to give it a masculine feel.  I used  a brick accent wall, layered rugs, leather tufted headboard and fur pillow.  I added in the gold sequined hello pillow and other gold accents for a little girly flair. The contrast of the two fits us perfectly.

A room is never complete at my house without some vintage finds. The emerald campaign style dresser could be tough to find, but I LOVE it! It has the masculine look my husband wants, but the brassy gold hardware that brings a little glam to the space. For the chair, I am hoping to find something to repurpose and transform it into something similar.

Most of the items in this mood board can be found at Target, West Elm, Crate and Barrel, Joss & Main and I often go to Etsy to look for pillows. And as mentioned earlier, the painting is from

We work at a snails pace around here. So the chances of us redoing our bedroom are probably not in the near future, but a girl can dream, right? And it is crazy wishful thinking that I could have a white bead spread with a farmer for a husband!
