{Inspired By} My Bedroom Inspiration Search

Still working on my bedroom idea search and found a few that I really like.  It seems like the theme here is neutral walls with a pop of color in the bedding.

I love the art above the bed, the chandelier and pillows and the gold lamp.

Loving the round pillows!  And elephant prints and the vintage phone on the nightstand.  Although the scale of that nightstand looks way too small to me.


Bright and one large fun graphic behind the bed adds a pop of interest that I like.

Love the lamps, and gray/yellow color combo.

Wallpaper behind the bed is great and the face pillows are fun!

Ahh, doesn't this room feel so peaceful...

A little nautical feel to this room and loving the plank walls and black and white bedding.

Liking the stripped rug here as well as the mirrored nightstand.  And look at those floors!

Lots of inspiration here folks, but I'm starting to see a theme...

{DIY Idea} Fabric Wall hanging

Here's an idea I've seen a few times and I like the fact that this can be a bold option for a headboard that is much less permanent and easy to switch out of your tastes change quickly like mine!  All you need to do is hang a rod over the bed and drape a fabric remnant over that.  Easy Peasy.

2010 is Rapidly Approaching

Hey there blogland!

Today I thought I'd do a New Year's Resolutions/Goals post after being inspired by the series over at Discover:ID and various other blogs.  Maybe I'll actually stick to them this year if I write them down for all to see!

So, without further ado, here are both my professional and personal 2010 Goals:

1. Launch Re:fresh Design Studio (the ID business) website and reveal the new blog layout.  Find ways to successfully market my business.  It's getting closer everyday to being done and I'm getting really excited!  I hope to have it launched shortly after the new year.

(Sneak peek at my new logo!  Stay tuned for more!)

2. Increase blog readership on my blog and remember to be a better commenter on other people's blogs. (I tend to read fast and move on, so I need to slow down and get my comments in).

3. Clean out one closet in my house per week and organize, organize, organize!  Take before and after photos to stay motivated.

4. Better my photography skills with the camera that I have and work towards saving for my dream camera.

5. Keep up with my new weekly posting series and schedule for the blog.  I'm a much better blogger when I have a (loose) schedule to follow!  Of course I give myself leeway to post about whatever I want, whenever.  Like today I wanted to do a resolutions post instead of a DIY idea.  :)

Mon: {Get this Look}

Tues: {DIY Idea}

Wed: {Designer Tip}

Thurs: {Inspired By:}

Fri: {Quote of the Week}

6. Try to accomplish more DIY projects.  Maybe one a week would be a good goal for now.  And of course I'll make sure to blog all about it.

Chairs I painted and re-upholstered in 2009

7. Keep working on my house, updating one room at a time as we can and share the pics with you all!

8. Find a space in my house to create a proper office nook.  Find a thrift store desk to revamp, and work at the desk each day instead of on the sofa!

Those are all the goals I can think of today, but I'm sure I'll be adding to this list as I come up with more ideas in the wee hours of the night ;)  How about you guys?  Have you made resolutions/goals for 2010 yet?  Or do you not bother because you know you'll never accomplish them?  I've always been somewhere in the middle, but 2010 is going to be a big year for me so I figured they were worth writing down and getting out there in the world!!

{Get This Look} Serene Bedroom

I'm loving this bedroom from this month's Elle Decor.

 The sereneness of the pale blue walls, the uniquely shaped headboard that you could easily DIY, the black lampshades and the brass of all the light fixtures in the room (yes, brass is back, just not the shiny brass.  Dull, antiqued brass is much better).  I like the symmetry of the nightstand, lamps and pictures above the lamps.  The natural rug (looks like seagrass or jute) and the all white bedding.  I also really like the bench at the end of the bed with it's curvy legs.  You could easily reproduce this look in your own home without spending much money.

I can't wait to get started on my bedroom makeover, but I'm going to take my time and find lots of inspiration first!
