Bedroom Inspiration | 2 | Modern Eclectic

While my favorite design style these days is still a monochromatic look with lots of black and white accents and wood tones, like my first bedroom inspiration post; for bedrooms I just like so many different styles. This fact is probably why it's the one room in my house that has absolutely no style whatsoever.  If I had to give it a style label it would probably be something like "apathetic teenager." It looks like my mom has gone in there a few times trying out a couple different ideas in attempt to make it look better but I just cover it up with piles of clothes and discarded contents from my purse change-outs. Oh, and it also looks l like I babysit in there on the weekends and neglect to clean up after the kids leave (in my defense the kids never leave at my house).

I am pretty smitten on this look by interior stylist, Jenny Wolf. It's warm and not too serious but still grown-up enough. It gives me a feeling that a pile of unfolded clothes over in the corner wouldn't look too out of place, and lets get real, I am in my middle 30's and I obviously still have trouble keeping my room clean - I need a little wiggle room. The other thing I like about this room is that it looks like a pretty simple make-over. While I didn't go inexpensive on my picks for the room I think it could be done on a small budget with some nice textiles, a bit of thrift store shopping and some elbow grease. The biggest investment by far would be that birch wallpaper but I just can't find a less expensive version that is nearly as lovely.

  2. I am in love with the wallpaper! Strangely it's not actually very me, but I am looking at it and I want to have a room like this... x

  3. I'm not a wallpaper fan, but I like that one. And the blanket on the bed is gorgeous! Would love to wrap myself in it on a relaxing Saturday afternoon. :)

  4. That berch wallpaper is stunning and I've seen it everywhere, it's a popular one on Apartment Therapy I feel like! Even still, I'm not tired of it. I'd love to paper my powder room in it. And I love that bedroom. I'd make a few tweaks to the original, but I really love your round-up! I think you had me with that yellow night table :) xo

  8. That wallpaper is great. They must be feeling like sleeping in a forest every night. Don't even get me started on the striped bed sheets, I can't get enough of stripes. Also love the yellow side table, yellow just makes me happy!

  9. I love this room, Christine. Every last detail of it. Putting that vintage painting above the bed was such a nice touch. This post is desperately reminding me that my daughter needs a "big girl" bed. She's 3.5 and we still have her crib, which we've converted, but still. Thank you for the inspiration!

  10. That room looks really pretty! I really like your blog! I'm glad that I found it! It would be nice if you could stop by my blog sometime too (I'm from England) as I post my outfits, personal style, likes and much more :) :)

  11. I absolutely love the mix of patterns in this room. And if you were only to do one focal wall with the paper, it may not be as bad ($$$) as you think ;-)

  12. I love that wallpaper! I love the whimsical woodland look. I wonder if you could combine some elements with the monochromatic look to make it less formal?

  13. I'm actually glad to know that I'm not the only one who has piles of clothes in the corner, but at the same time bummed because I thought I would eventually grow out of it! Oh well, I might as well get used to it and make sure I have decor as cute as this to distract from it!

  14. Apathetic teenager? I really like that - that's probably the state of my wardrobe right now. I have way more neon and ripped clothing than any adult nearing 30 should have :)
