Mia + Joelle's Bedroom Inspiration

Here's a sneak peek at the Moodboards for Mia + Joelle's bedroom design I have been working on with Hilary over at Pink Pianos.
This first board is just a color study for Joelle. She's an 8 year old southern california girl and loves the surf and the sand of course! We chose shades of blue, green, and yellow with the use of raw woods to create that beachy feel without creating something too literal.

The gorgeous bedding from Bungalow is the perfect combination of colors and subtle pattern! Love, Love, Love. The linen capiz sheers create that light and airy feel we are trying to capture. The rattan poofs and the hanging hammocks are a must! This bed from Pottery Barn is the perfect bed to lounge around in and layer with pillows! This is just the beginning...there will be more to come on this project!

The first board here is just for color inspiration for Mia, a 10 year old with a bit of a punk rock attitude! She's adorable and her little personality is really starting to blossom. Her favorite colors are purple and orange and she even provided us with some colored blocks that she chose for her color palette. The rooms have to stay consistent with the serene feel of the rest of the house, so we can't go too crazy in Mia's room although she wouldn't mind! Mia is very artistic and we need to find some creative for her to express her energy.

We think an upholstered headboard is a great solution for a teenager who's taste is always changing! I love these fabrics from Megan Adams Designs and think they add just the right amount of spunk and color intensity. The platform bed is great and we are thinking of lacquering it a color...maybe a gray! The Funky Zebra Rug by Diane VonFurstenburg for the Rug Company adds that special twist so this room doesn't become too serious! Mia has a disco ball that we will hang from the ceiling and mix with some soft soft paper lanterns and flower poofs. Again this is just the beginning and there will be more to come!
