Master Bedroom: the Inspiration Board

Hope you had a lovely weekend! I’m back to working on the master bedroom… and here’s a look at my ideas for the new space. Patterns and fabrics have yet to be decided but I’d love to mix that bohemian/eclectic feel with softer/traditional elements (like batik fabric for an occasional chair with sheer white panels for the windows, a bright sunburst mirror with a conventional everyday dresser).

My colors are swirling around in the navy, tan and brown ranges but I know a “pop” of something would be ideal! Should it be brick red? A muted yellow? Maybe a sea glass green? Oh decisions decisions…

Handmade Crepe Paper Rose Centerpieces

I have always loved beautiful, perfectly round flower balls or ‘lollipop’ centerpieces. There’s something playful and fun about the classically elegant design and they’re super easy to put together.

I did a diy project a while back for a colorful dessert table with carnations and floral foam, and for our wedding created hanging floral versions above the pool out of hot glue and fake flowers plucked from their stems.

And then I found this lovely version at Grey Grey Designs, they were created by Danielle at Homespun with Heart out of twisted crepe paper, a bit of hot glue and foam balls.

The tutorial from start to finish can be found here. It’s amazing what can be made with a bit of paper and some creative time!

Beautiful! Perfect for a little girl’s room, dinner party, wedding or shower. Danielle has done a fantastic job and I can’t wait to try it out.
