Moodboard inspired by my living room

Like the headline already mentioned, I had an online client who wanted a living room that was inspired by my living room. Not exactly but similar. 

And this is what I came up with:









That's it for today.
On Wednesday I'll write a little bit about Haven. I just got back last night but was way to tired to chat about my awesome experience.

New Gigantor Headboard

{Update: you can read the tutorial HERE now}

How was your weekend my friends? Did you take all your Halloween decor down? I'm still working on it but almost done.

Did you notice something new around here? I thought I'd sparkle it up a little for the Holidays with a header and button change. Do you like it? And who knows, I might keep it since my gold obsession is taking over.

So I couldn't hold off on you guys any longer, even though the room isn't finished yet. I'm sharing today what I have so far, what I still want done and what I might change again.

I love, love, love these brass nails. Aren't they gorgeous?

I wanted the headboard to be the biggest statement in the room,  since her last one was way too short I went really big with it this time. Almost too tall I'd say.
And I wanted to tone the colors down a little. The pepto pink was driving me nuts. But for her it had to be pink again. She just loves it! So we settled on a barely there pink that is almost white. I wanted to possibly paint the ceiling with something fun instead but am not sure now anymore. It's not like painting ceilings is fun.

And it is a queen size bed for a 7 year old. Yup it is! We are big snugglers in our family and I have sleepovers with her every weekend. We don't want to have it any other way. There is nothing better than cuddling with the little ones. They grow up way too fast.
Besides that, she told me that princesses sleep in big beds and she doesn't want a tiny baby bed even if it means she has less room to play.

I found the brass wall sconce at Goodwill for $4 and am hoping to find another one for the other side of the bed. I'd really love to remove the cluttered nightstand at some point. The lamp shade is from Target and the inside is orange. I love the glow of it when it is turned on.

I ended up painting the Urban Outfitter faux chandelier gold but wouldn't mind finding a cool vintage chandelier to replace it at some point.

The white Euro shams are really old and belonged to my great-grandmother. I love them so much and actually am afraid to keep them in her room. I'm probably going to add different ones because I don't want her to ruin them. They have stains already from my cat that ran through paint years ago and then over the shams. It really broke my heart. I got them all out except of one beige stain :(
They are of course hand made which is crazy in itself how much time people put into this craft.

The color of the mirror that used to hang in our hallway goes perfectly with the color in her curtain fabric and she adores the mirror.

I might add some artwork to the wall yet too like this mommy and baby duck. It's from my grandmother and I used to have it in my room growing up.

I bought her this matryoshka piggy bank from Target.
The table was painted to match her old room and I might have to paint it yet too.

Ever since getting the Schumacher Aquamarine Chiang Mai Dragon fabric from Jesse (Scout & Nimble) I have never looked at my daughter's curtain fabric the same. Look how well the fabric would look with the headboard. I just love it so much!

Or even this fabric from a Joann's scrap sale:

Braemore fabric

Those fabrics are totally not an option budget wise unfortunately but I was thinking of possibly painting some different colors with fabric paint into her curtains. I'm craving a dark blue in the worst way. And that dark teal looks gorgeous too.

So here is what I'm still thinking about possibly doing:
• painting the ceiling
• painting some blue into her curtain fabric
• getting an area rug
• finding another brass wall sconce
• replacing the Euro shams with something more durable 
• possibly finding a vintage chandelier
• painting her play table
• fixing her shelving unit
• redoing/painting her window shades

What I did so far:
• painted her wall
• painted her trim and doors a crisp white
• built and upholstered her headboard
• sewed a tailored bedskirt
• sewed curtains

(I wanted to chop the legs down a little on her headboard to make it less tall and she flipped out. She loves it this big ;)

The tutorial and what materials I used are coming in a post on Wednesday. I didn't want this one to get too long.

Lots to do yet but I also got a lot done already too.

On My Mind Monday: Nurseries

{If you are here to see the Modern Fall Home Tour then click HERE}

Yes, you read right but it's not for me. I'm so done with that stuff but who says I can't look for someone else?
I was so busy with my daughter's soccer tournament this weekend that I didn't have much time for anything besides browsing the web for someone else. I also didn't have a mood board in a while.

I have to say that there is some really cool stuff out there right now for nurseries.

This is going to be one of those short post where I'll just show you what I like. And I did include my dresser in the lineup because it has the perfect size and height for a changing pad:


1 / 2 / 3 / 4 / 5 / 6 / 7 / 8

Click HERE for a cheaper version of the lotus pendant.

Some of the items are a total splurge which is usually not what I go for but in this case I couldn't help myself. The only thing missing is a colorful moroccan pouf and you could pick the gender specific color after the baby is born. 

So what have you been up to this weekend?

I'm working away on my daughter's new headboard by the way which has been delayed due to some upholstery items that I ordered online. I can't wait until it is done though.

Talk to you on Wednesday.
