The GOOD MOOD(board) Master Bedroom Edition...

19 September 2011

Well, I am hoping this blog hop all works out.  I know that we have all been very busy... and this is our first time trying this out, so bear with us...  But I am excited to try.

So truth be told, I am still really trying to figure out my own personal style.  I think that being involved in blogland sometimes confuses me, because I have an appreciation for LOTS of styles.  I just love interior design.  (probably why I got my degree in it... duh)

But beyond that, it has a deeper kind of feeling for me.  I love interiors, because I love home.  I love the people, the memories, the comforts, the meals- all the things that make up a home.   And when it comes to  design, It doesn't matter if it is something battered and old, to shiny and new, I can appreciate the fact that different people find those same comforts in their surroundings

Also, since I am a (fairly) new mother (going on two years) I get really excited about how am creating my home for my own children's experience.  Especially as my oldest is just really becoming aware of her surroundings and jumping on beds, building forts and climbing up on top of tables... she is learning to experience her space, and beginning to feel the comfort of home.

So, with those thoughts in mind, I am trying to discover the style that I am truly passionate about.  The pieces that speak to me, not because they were (just) a good deal (heaven knows we all love to save some cash), but because I LOVE the design, and it is timeless, well made and will last.  That is what I am trying to think of right now, which means that it is going to take a long time to finish this house... but that is okay with me, because when I do finally finish, I am going to love it.

Okay enough chatter.   How about a mood board.

The goal in this blog hop is to give you all a glimpse into the styles that each participating blogger loves.  To get your creative juices flowing and for all of us to gain a better understanding of what we love, and seek for those things...

I picked out an image that is the inspiration for this space.

 For those of you thinking...yuck, I kid you not, I love that house!  I want THAT house!
(and the rolling hills and surrounding trees... I want all that land too!)
 I have always wanted an old historic stone home... I LOVE them -
think Marley and me... (picture below...)

So, here is the master bedroom that I designed in that stone house...

This space is eclectic yes, maybe more than I can stand to live in, but  I love the idea of the collected pieces, and one of a kind items.  I didn't really have anything in mind before other than wanting a farmhouse/industrial look!

Here are some of the great items I found to use (thanks Beth for the great idea of adding these)  You can see them here on my olioboard!

I created the space, with old rustic floors, and wooden beam ceilings.  But I also wanted an exposed stone wall.

I am loving the pop of yellow.

I love the idea of layers of texture-  I am not much for patterns.   BUT I love lots of texture so I added velvet drapes, steal, wood and stone.

That is about it!

I too love the old historical looking houses... but living on the West Coast is not where I would find something like that! I love your fresh mix of modern rustic! I would so sleep there!

I love it, Cassity! Awe - look at the little horse! haha! Looks familiar. I love rustic and industrial and farmhouse too. You did a beautiful job at putting together an inviting room! Love it!

Cassity I was just looking at a website by an Irish photographer...he goes around Ireland taking photos of old abandoned stone houses/castles. Your dream home reminds me of an Irish castle. :) if you want to look at his awesome pics for more inspiration he's at NobodyHome dot ie

We have been working on a vision for our master bedroom recently! It's our next big project. I love the program you used. Can't wait to give it a try & I love your vision and the rest of the ladies who participated today!

I love that old home too. It could be my dream home. Which I really have to dream because I live in the desert:(

Mrs. Limestone September 19, 2011 at 3:12 PM  

Fun! Love yellow and gray.

I have my moodboard all ready to go for Wednesday.

Kat from California September 19, 2011 at 5:35 PM  

Cassidy, when you did your mood board, how did you create a 3 dimensional room. I mean did you find the picture of the farm house room in Olio or what? If I'm looking for a room what do I look for? Thanks, Katharine

P.S. I have my board done but it's only 2 dimensional now.

Remodelaholic September 19, 2011 at 9:43 PM  

Kat - how are you?!

Here is the deal- I put the "room" together from a few images I found online in Photoshop, since I was new to Olioboard. But I found out too late, that when you are in the editor, there is a tab that says "Community Sets" that has empty room images you can use.

I have to admit that a few items I tweaked in Photoshop too, because I am a perfectionist, and I wanted the rug to look like it was laying on the floor. Once I tweaked using Transform - Distort, in case you are wondering, I just re-uploaded the image.

I also picked furnishing images that were set up properly for my particular perspective.

But you don't have to do that, it is fun to just play around, until you are happy with the look!

Good Luck!

Such a pretty, welcoming stone house. I have a weakness for them myself! Your gray and yellow palette is perfect. Thanks for sharing!
