Project Dollhouse Update- From a Tea Tin to a Master Bedroom

Sunday, September 18, 2011

So we're plugging away over at Project Dollhouse and I wanted to share the inspiration and some of the selections for the master bedroom.  Do you think you could be inspired to design a bedroom around a tea tin?  


This is my muse! It's a pretty tea tin I came across recently and I fell in love with the jade green and tomato red color scheme and the oriental design.  So, here is how it gets translated into a master bedroom.  

First, the paint
Spruce Green by Benjamin Moore.  This is a pretty accurate representation of the color in person.  It's more vibrant than most of the other color selections in the house.

This screen will serve as the headboard.  I blogged about this idea here.

I want to use this bedding from West Elm

with some accent pillows in these fabrics
Braemore's Flowering Branch - a favorite of mine!



And maybe a little teal and a little leopard.

I have some chunky lacquer side tables that I'll paint red, like this one above.

and some beefy brass lamps to flank the bed.




And that's as far as I got!  I'd love to know where you're finding your inspiration!

Ooooh, I can't wait to see this come together, Kim! I especially love the paint choice and the screen-as-headboard. Please share with us as you move along in the process!

LOVE where you're going with this! The green on the walls is almost identical to the color I painted my daughter's nursery - I love the jewel-box quality it has.
And, speaking of jewels - those LAMPS! If I lived closer, I might have to work some sort of bribe! ;)

So creative - what a unique place to find inspiration! I love the idea of the Chinese screen for a headboard, and the lamps you've chosen are absolutely perfect. Very much looking forward to seeing the finished product!

Beautiful! I hope you get a chance to come visit the new store in warehouse row. It is a bit of a pink version of your bedroom!
