I'm finally ready to reveal our master bedroom! It's really my own unique style; part mid-century, part girly glam. I was inspired by some of my current color obsessions; navy blue, aqua, and mint green. I added some peach and gold accents in the artwork to help warm up the space. I tried to add plenty of reflective surfaces, neutral white and gauzy sheer curtains to brighten up the room. It was a bold choice to go so dark with the wall color, but I'm really happy with the space. It manages to be soothing, without being boring.
The wall color is Behr's Darkest Navy. The antique iron bed frame was mine in high school. I used a thrifted, embossed, chenille bedspread as a bed skirt. I love the fringe! The mid-century, metal, rolling, record cart was a gift from a friend. I found the Crosley suitcase record player at an estate sale for cheap. The white hanging light is a puzzle lamp from good ole Ikea. The letters over the bed are actually 3-D cardboard letters that I sprayed gold. The are super lightweight, so if they fall off the wall in the middle of the night, we won't be killed by LOVE. ;)
The nightstand was thrifted and then painted a pale minty blue. The blue, Zenith alarm clock/ tube radio is from the 1950s. It only gets AM stations, but it sounds crystal clear! The "You and me are meant to be" screen print was ordered on Etsy.
The Thonet chair at my sewing nook, was purchased at the Denver Modernism Show, and then recovered in the same Amy Butler Honeycomb fabric as the Mod Podged desk. My wool chevron rug came from ebay. Our matching Drexel dresser set came from an Estate sale for $50 for the pair!! I'm still doing cartwheels over that bargain! I have some of my vintage hats and small purses hanging from hooks on either side of my dresser. It's a nice way to keep everything organized, and also display some of my favorite accessories. We have an aqua Princess phone and the coolest turquoise, spinning pen holder. The aqua, 1950s, deer, TV lamp came from ebay, but the two tiered fiberglass lampshade came from a yard sale for .50!! I framed a 1950s swimsuit ad, and some of my favorite vintage cameras are displayed throughout our room.
The mint "Happy Happy" screen print is from Etsy. The mint green floor fan was originally a standard, black plastic fixture, which met with some Krylon Pistachio and Silver spray paint. I think it gives it a nice retro feel, but I don't have to worry about severed fingers, like with the genuine antique fans. Those vintage metal fans are a thing of beauty, but those wide slats in the screen terrify me!
More vintage cameras, including a Brownie with flash, and the Bolex, I used in my film school days. The mini bullet planter was thrifted and my kitschy little owl bank came from the same estate as my dressers. It's the wrong era, but I couldn't resist it's cuteness. The "I freaking love you" screenprint came from here and the "Home sweet home" screenprint came from here.
Our bookshelf has geode bookends. The "Kissing Booth" screenprint came from here.
