Winter Inspiration :: A Christmas Palate Cleanser
Maybe you are like a kid at Christmas (I know I am!) and you listen to Christmas music on the sly in July, but even the most spirited among us need a break every now and then from all the hype... or at least I do. There are plenty of choices in most of our homes for escapes, like the basement storage closet, or the guest bathroom, but if you really want a retreat from all the holiday activity, the Master Bedroom is an ideal candidate. Where better is there to cozy up during the winter months that our own bed with a few candles lit, a reading light, and a stack of books and magazines? You'll find me there, hibernating, until at least March!
We talked yesterday about some of the questions you might want to consider before diving into your own Winterization process, so today we are going to chat about the digital Story Board. By compiling your favorite images, whether on Pinterest, Tumblr or Instagram, you can really get a sense for what you want from your space. Here are some things to consider as you decide which images should stay in your Story Board:
- What colors appeal to me the most right now?
- What textures am I drawn to?
- What about this photo inspires me? Is it the color? the atmosphere? the style?
I am sharing my personal Winter Master Bedroom Story Board with you below and I will share along the way why I included these images!
This Mood Board because the colors, blend of styles, and understated elegance appeal to me.
This bedroom because of the Emerald Wall + Accents but NOT quite so much messiness
Love the bold Greek Key Runner!
Green Accents + Pattern (This pattern is an Art Piece!)
The kind of place where you want to eat breakfast in bed (more specifically, these banana pancakes!)
Gum Tree Wreath = Wintery but not Christmassy!
Keep the Budget down with DIY projects!
Sapphire Fur because I am obsessed with this color! (This Key Ring is on my wish list!)
A great reminder when creating!
Love this Fur Hat because it is elegant but cozy!
Tulips, even in the winter!
Winter Warmth without Christmas Or Santa
Nook space because I need to respect the angles of my room
White Walls + Approachability of the Room appeal to me
Because counting sheep just got super cute!
I will be back tomorrow to show you the room put together!
