Bedroom Inspiration

Sorry to disappoint... this post is about bedroom decor inspiration...

In mid-2008 I saw this bedroom in a Crate and Barrel catalog:


(I just pulled this image from crateandbarrel.com)

I remember loving with bright blue walls and the dark furniture -- But I never consciously tried to copy this room.

Well I must have ingrained that image pretty deep in my mind, because I'm finally done decorating our bedroom and this is what is looks like:



Isn't that crazy?!

Just so you know, I love love love our bedroom! The blue walls make me so happy and the chocolate furniture contrasts oh-so-nicely. We can see the Pacific Ocean while laying in bed, which perfectly ties in with the blue decor.

Also, this is my first "adult" bedroom -- meaning this the first bedroom I've had where the bed is in the middle of the room and has two nightstands (hey! This could be one of my "Signs of Adulthood"!). I guess that what happens when you need "his" and "her" sides.

What has inspired your bedroom decor?

UPDATE: In case you were wondering... the paint is Behr's Brilliant Sea, the furniture is the Polo Set from Plummers, and the bedspread is The Plaza Bedding from Z Gallerie.

I love your room! I wish hubs would let us have a color on our walls... we have cheery wood furniture and then striped bedspread that has great colors in it! I will post about it some day soon! Still trying to get it all together:)

I love the blue walls especially with dark wood. It's such a great combo.

I love the blue and dark wood.

We rent an apartment so no paint on the walls, but I love our furniture. Someday when we have a house I want to paint the bedroom walls a pretty shade of green.

I love your bedroom! The furniture looks great with the blue walls. And I'm a little, okay a lot, jealous that you can see the ocean from your room.

Hi there! New to your blog and loving it!

I also painted my first "adult bedroom" with my husband blue, and while it was a bit of a spur-of-the-moment decision, it was the best decor choice we made. It's so calming and inviting! Thank goodness for the unconcious inspiration of Crate and Barrel, huh?

Your bedroom looks great! I love that blue - I actually have those marimekko sheets from Crate and Barrel and I LOVE them. They are so bright and happy!
