When Jeremy and I first bought our home we assigned our bedrooms numbers since they didn’t have identities yet.
Bedroom #1 became the master bedroom. Bedroom #3 is finally coming together as our office. Bedroom #2 is still a room with no name – but eventually I’d like to call it our guest bedroom.
So this evening as I was shopping on line with my brother and brainstorming decorating ideas for him I became inspired. When I think of my guest bedroom I think of my brother staying with me – so why not decorate this room for him? I like to imagine this room as a poor traveling musicians room (with great style, of course).
So I promptly whipped together a moodboard.
Do you love it? I do!
Now, while all of these things, aside from the vintage suitcase table, are very “off the shelf” I would actually try to hunt and gather most furniture from local antique stores. I could find multiple vintage maps and layer them on the wall, a wrought iron bed, an old rusty chandelier. This mood board just helps to give focus and direction to this room.
Here are the elements I used for this mock-up:
8′ x 13′ world map wall mural – urban outfitters – $140
IKEA Heimdal twin size bed frame – $79
Now, I’m not sure if getting a twin size bed is very practical (or comfortable) but I love the idea of it.
Jeremy’s drums. ’64 Ludwig.
Keep calm poster in metallic silver.
Ikea stockholm rand layered with
5×7 Diamond Kilim Printed Cotton Rug – Urban Outfitters -$68
Vintage repurposed suitcase side table.
overnight table lamp – cb2 – $49.95
And last but not least this chandelier would be SO rad in this room.
