I’m so excited to share with you the mood board for the winner of our 300K giveaway we hosted a few weeks ago. We had so many wonderful and deserving entries–we wish everyone could have won! In the end, a sweet nurse and school teacher’s bedroom won. They had done some work on it already but other areas of the house were slowly taking away furnishings from their bedroom leaving it a pretty blank slate. You can click through the photos:

We’ve spent the last week face-timing them and learned they are really looking for a calm retreat. I learned their pain points (those flat wood doors and lack of lamps and color) and came up with a vision for their bedroom. Our sponsors were so generous and I worked within the those parameters so everything they say on the mood board they could “buy” with the gift cards provided. Here’s how it all breaks down!
1. I love the Harper King bed
from Interior Define and it’s one that we even considered for our own room. It’s fully customizable but for this bedroom, we chose the extra tall headboard, in Mod Velvet Elephant. It’s a gray that leans just a little blue—so pretty. You can customize the legs too and I love these black ones with brass caps that coordinate with the nightstand.
2. For the floor we love this tonal rug from Loloi.
It has beautiful neutrals with some soft blue in it that we’re going to carry elsewhere in the room. The room is a 10×14, so I’d recommend an 8×10 so it doesn’t swallow the room completely.
4. These aged brass and white wall mounted lights
from Rejuvenation are beautiful and have been a long-time favorite. I love mounted lamps above nightstands for homes with lots of young children because it’s so kid-friendly, but also frees up so much room on the surface for photos, a catch-all, a vase of greens and/or a good book.
6. The trickiest thing about this room were the asymmetrical windows. For both windows, I would use these soft white roman shades
(Odyssey Whisper White from Blinds.com)—in blackout and cordless! With painted trim (we’ll get to that in a minute) and these blackout roman shades, I think I would skip curtains! It only draws attention the the fact that the windows aren’t symmetrical. And this will clean it up while adding function and design.
7. The Arched Mantel framed mirror
from Rejuvenation adds high style in between the two doors on the right side of the room and will bounce light from the window.
12. I love white bedding, but an easy way to update it is by simply adding a pair of patterned pillow cases. These linen striped ones
from McGee & Co will elevate the entire bed and add just enough pattern to your bed while still allowing the rest of the room to sing.
13. Lastly, I loaded the room up with art from Artfully Walls. Pink Horizon by Faith Taylor
in the largest size, (no mat) above the bed sets the tone for the whole room.
Unfortunately for us, the giveaway did not include us traveling to New Jersey to help make the vision a reality but we hope they’ll share pictures along the way! And we hope you could take some notes from how we solved common problems in a bedroom, too!
