I was trying to find our bedding from the Ikea website and I guess they don’t have it anymore. I need some Julia inspiration for our bedroom style…I LOVE the bedspread and I’m loving like warm yummy greens. I saw the bedspread ad in the Ikea magazine and they matched with nice rich greens with charcoal grey textured pillows. I LOVED that. They had this fuzzy green throw. –Meagan
Don’t you love their bedspread, too? We love it Meagan and Ryan! And, not only do you have a great start with the duvet choice, but you also have two great his/her nightstands and a blank canvas other than that–all things right up my alley. I put all of those things plus some of those warm greens that you have been eyeing together on a seriously fierce mood board that makes me want to redo my room–(again).
Here’s what I’m thinking:
8. Can I get an “ooohhhhh, ahhhhhh” on that picture, please? Hello? An 8×10 black and white (I love this pic of the ultimate power couple, themselves), in a nice white frame sitting on that shelf would do wonders personalizing the room AND tying in the gray color scheme.
9. Since green is what you envy, I say add some of the real stuff–or the fake stuff, that looks real depending on the color of your thumb. This little 6″ guy is under $8 and would add so much charm on one of the nightstands.
10. On the other nightstand, I would love to see the most adorable ceramic owl I have ever seen….or something like it. It’s the right color, size, theme. Ahhhh! I love it when I strike gold!
11. Lastly, a warm a cozy throw to hang lay over the bottom of your bed. Choose one with cooler undertones like this one in “oregano,” so that the warm greens can really shine, but the eyes still have a place to rest.
Speaking of rest, I would love to in this room! What do you think? What would you add…or maybe even subtract? I hope this helps, Meags. And if anyone else has a room in their place that they are having a hard time putting together, or don’t even know where to start–e-mail me, and I’ll give it my best effort. jmarcum1127 [at] gmail [dot] com.
We designed the Charly line of sofas, chairs, and ottomans with perfect proportions for comfort — with wide arms, a loungey depth, and stylish and practical lumbar pillows. Available in 70 kid-friendly, pet-friendly fabrics, this line was created with families in mind.
Our wood grain Shaker cabinet fronts were designed for busy, high-traffic homes like ours. Clad with durable textured thermofoils, this line is compatible with Sektion, Akurum, Godmorgon, and Besta cabinets from IKEA. It's the perfect, practical way to add the warmth of wood to all the rooms of your home.
We have teamed up with Loloi to create a line of rugs that are as affordable as they are beautiful. This collection houses a great mix of traditional and modern rugs, in cottage-y colorways, as well as vintage-inspired beauties that you’ll want to roll out in every room.
We partnered with Stuga on a line of hardwood floors — The Ingrid is really livable, and the color is very neutral. It doesn’t lean warm or cool, it’s that just right in-between. We have really loved putting it everywhere in our house. It’s the best jumping-off point for design, no matter your interior style. In addition to being beautiful, Ingrid is really durable — we have three kids, and we always have a home construction project going on. Ingrid stands up to it all.

Almost daily I get asked what I would call my home style. I don’t like to box myself in, but I definitely lean Modern Traditional with an emphasis on comfort when it comes to our home. This especially came up when I shared our Powder Bath Reveal on the blog. I think it changes slightly […]
